Synopsis

Mr. Krabs makes some new rules and goes to his office while Squidward imitates him behind his back but Mr. Krabs hears him however, Squidward lies that he was imitating him out of flattery. SpongeBob believes this lie and decides to mimic/imitate people for business, and also because he heard that "imitation plus flattery equals happy people." He first imitates a father yelling at his kids. The father and the kids become impressed with SpongeBob's mimicry. SpongeBob them imitates Squidward, who also likes his imitation. He then imitates Patrick, who thinks he's looking at his real self.

SpongeBob then imitates Sandy and Plankton, while they were playing a game of checkers. Sandy admires the imitation, but Plankton says that "The voice is all wrong." He also imitates the French Narrator by saying "80 000 Imitations Later..." in his voice as the narrator complains about it. After a while, it starts to get annoying as his everyone tries to persuade him to stop, but he gets a thing called "mocking mimicry madness" and ends up forgetting who he truly is. SpongeBob's friends, including Plankton, attempt to help, but they make it worse as SpongeBob happens to mimic all of them at once to their disgust. Sandy tries to get SpongeBob to come back to his senses but his attempts cause him to have a breakdown of imitations and leaves town calling himself a freak.

SpongeBob goes to live in a cave in regrets of not remembering himself. His friends find him and end up mimicking him in order to bring back SpongeBob. It ends up working, but the others get the mocking mimicry madness and end up like SpongeBob. The episode ends with a focus of a laughing Squidward and his distraught real self demanding to be let out of his subconscious.

2. In the rough storyboard, instead of going straight to Mr. Krabs talking to SpongeBob and Squidward, there is scene where SpongeBob runs into The Krusty Krab. He then breathes heavily. He then happily walks towards the kitchen. He is then followed by Squidward, who is slouching and seems to dislike that he has to go back to work.

  • In the rough storyboard, he is not shown transforming into the fish's head, the face just appears. In the final storyboard, he is shown transforming. The same thing happens when SpongeBob transforms back into the five guests and when he transforms into Plankton.
  • The two heads of the fish are different between the two versions of the storyboard.
  • When SpongeBob has Plankton's head, in the rough storyboard, he continues the march normally. In the final storyboard, he looks up, closes his bottom lid, and shakes his arm up in the air.

88. In the super close-up of SpongeBob during the song, in the final storyboard, it starts with SpongeBob's normal face, without his nose, and eyes of his friends appears and then he mixes them around.

94. When the five guests find SpongeBob, in rough storyboard, in the final shot before it cuts back to SpongeBob, the order (from right to left) is: Mr. Krabs, Plankton, Sandy, Patrick, and Squidward. In the final storyboard, the order is: Mr. Krabs, Squidward, Plankton, Sandy, and Patrick.

96. When Sandy tries to test to see if SpongeBob can see how many fingers she is holding up, in the rough storyboard, SpongeBob is facing to the right of the screen. In the final storyboard, he is facing to the left of the screen. This makes SpongeBob look up at Sandy, instead of to his right to see Sandy like in the rough storyboard. It also causes the "B" and the phone heads of SpongeBob to be in a different direction in the two versions of the storyboard.

97. In the final storyboard, SpongeBob is shown transforming from the "B" head into the phone head. In the rough storyboard, he doesn not.

98. When Sandy tells the group they have to imitate SpongeBob, throughout the speech, SpongeBob is transforming from the phone head in the final storyboard. In the rough storyboard, he only has his normal head.

103. When Sandy goes to brush Patrick, in the final storyboard, his pants are showing. In the rough storyboard, it is not.

104. When Sandy goes to brush herself, in the final storyboard, her arm is above her. In the rough storyboard, it is closer to her body.

105. When Sandy goes to brush Plankton:

110. In the final storyboard, Patrick does a similar routine to the one that Squidward does in the rough storyboard.

111. Mr. Krabs' routine is longer in the final storyboard than in the rough storyboard.

112. When the close-up Mr. Krabs is shown during his routine, he is yellow in the final storyboard. He is not colored in the rough storyboard.

  • In the rough storyboard, they are in a circle. In the final storyboard, they are in a line.
  • In the rough storyboard, Plankton is next to Squidward and Mr. Krabs. In the final storyboard, Plankton is next to SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs.

117. When the scene is a close-up of Sandy after she tells the group that they all have to mimic SpongeBob, the movement is different between the two versions.

118. When SpongeBob's version of Mr. Krabs' head spits out SpongeBob's version of Squidward's head, in the rough storyboard, it is done to the front of SpongeBob. In the final storyboard, it is done upwards.

119. In the final storyboard, when SpongeBob gets his eyes back, in the close-up of SpongeBob's face, they have to come together. In the rough storyboard, they came together in the shot prior.

120. When SpongeBob gets his nose, in the final storyboard, his eyelashes come back shortly after. In the rough storyboard, SpongeBob's eyelids are half-closed, so they don't appear until he opens his eyes in the next shot.

121. When SpongeBob is completely back to normal, he jumps in the air and a sparkle appears around SpongeBob.

  • It is colored in the final storyboard. In the rough storyboard, it is not.

124. After the group's heads transform into SpongeBob heads, in the rough storyboard, the scene shows a close-up of Squidward's head, where Squidward sheds a tear. It then cuts back to SpongeBob and group, where they start laughing together. It then cuts back to Squidward's head, where, inside Squidward's eyes, Squidwards appear, banging on the eye, like it is glass. In the final storyboard, these scenes are taken out is cut out. Instead, it is just one long shot of SpongeBob joining the group laughing.

Trivia

Timeline
Timecards
  • 80,000 Impressions Later...
  • Vincent Waller has stated this was one of his personal favorite episodes, and even recommended to watch it.[citation needed]
  • This episode's title card is similar to the title card for "Culture Shock," only this one is brighter.
    • The title card is also similar to the title card for "A Pal for Gary."
  • In the original storyboard, Karen comes out of the Chum Bucket and laughs at SpongeBob's impression of Plankton. She is not in the final cut.
  • This episode premiered two years after "License to Milkshake" premiered in Germany and Poland.
  • This episode and "House Worming" are the first Season 10 episodes to premiere in 2017.
  • This episode possibly takes place before "Gone" because when SpongeBob mimics his friends, he gets Mocking Mimicry Madness.
    • However, it's more likely that SpongeBob doesn't get Mocking Mimicry Madness in "Gone" because in that episode he simply imitates his friends based on what he remembers about them, rather than actually imitating everything they do in front of him.
  • When SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs to "bring it around town," this is a reference to the bubble blowing technique in "Bubblestand."
  • The episode "Friend or Foe" is referenced in the song "Who Am I?"
  • This is Plankton's first appearance in Season 10, while the other main characters all first appeared in "Whirly Brains."
  • This is the only time so far where French Narrator directly talks to SpongeBob. The fourth wall is broken here.
  • This episode marks the first song to be sung by SpongeBob in Season 10.
  • This is one of the rare instances where Plankton spends the entire episode with the other main characters without being an antagonist.
  • In this episode, Patrick eats food from the garbage in front of the Krusty Krab. Usually, he eats food from the garbage in the back of The Krusty Krab.
  • Not counting imitations by SpongeBob or a cameo in a photo, all of the main characters appear in this episode except Gary the Snail.
  • In the first shot of the inside of the Krusty Krab, the roof above the kitchen/office is made of metal. However, in "Squidtastic Voyage," the roof of the kitchen/office is made of the wood from the floor of the Krusty Krab.

Cultural references

  • SpongeBob having the Mocking Mimicry Madness resembles Robin mimicking his friends and losing his own personality in the Teen Titans Go! episode "Uncle Jokes."
  • Squidward's real self begging to be let out of his subconscious is a reference to the horror film Psycho IV.
  • SpongeBob's voice as he says "I'm gonna flatter your socks off!" is reminiscent of the narrator's voice in PowerPuff Girls.

Errors

Mimicmad squidnowrinkleforehead

Squidward not shown with a forehead

  • Squidward is shown with no forehead wrinkles at one point.
  • When SpongeBob says "I don't know!" while the camera zooms out, his legs are a bit too thick.
    • Also, he is back to his normal self.
  • When Mr. Krabs walks into his office, he walks in like the door is closed and he is opening it. This is likely from the storyboard, where it was closed and he opened it.
