A mantu is a clothing item for sale at the Toy Barrel. It only appears in the episode "Toy Store of Doom."


It is likely a tutu for men, although, SpongeBob could have made up the term "mantu." According to him, they were on sale and he managed to get the last one. It is different than a tutu, as a mantu has "extra support."

Role in episode
