One day at the Krusty Krab, Patrick ordered a Krabby Kiddie Meal (a smaller Krabby Patty, but thirty percent cuter according to SpongeBob). Patrick complained because it didn't come with a toy and demanded a refund, alerting Mr. Krabs. So Mr. Krabs took a Krabby Patty and some straws, and created a Krusty Krab licensed toy. SpongeBob came up with the name 'Patty Pal'. SpongeBob and Patrick loved playing with the toy, so a whole shipment of Patty Pals were delivered to the Krusty Krab.
A Patty Pal toy is basically a Krabby Patty with pickles for eyes, a ketchup smile, and drinking straws for arms and legs. It is also edible, as Patrick is seen eating one so he doesn't have to share it with SpongeBob. A Patty Pal toy costs $13.50.
- Patty Pal is probably a reference to McDonald's Happy Meal toys.
- This isn't the first toy only sold at the Krusty Krab. In "Born Again Krabs," Mr. Krabs gives children squeaky fish toys. The same thing occurred at "Mermaid Man vs. SpongeBob", where Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy toys are sold.
- If Patty Pals were actually made out of real Krabby Patties, they would soon spoil and get all messed up. This didn't happen to SpongeBob and Patrick's, despite being played with all day and all night. This is what happened to Patty in the episode To Love a Patty.
- Despite Mr. Krabs "selling them like hotcakes", Patty Pals aren't seen or heard being sold after the episode.
