The lawn mower is tiny in order to comply with Plankton's height and is red and gray in color with maya blue wheels in the rubber tires.
Role in episode
After Mr. Krabs shows SpongeBob and Patrick a T.V. show called Crustacean Crime Theater and tells them never to steal, the pair point out his hypocrisy by showing him numerous items that were stolen from the Bikini Bottomites, one of which is Plankton's lawn mower.
- It is unknown why Plankton has a lawn mower in the first place, considering his residence is his own restaurant, which has never been shown to be surrounded by any grass or plants.
- Although most of the people whom SpongeBob and Patrick accuse Mr. Krabs of stealing from have done nothing to provoke him, it would be natural for him to steal from Plankton, given all the latter's (failed) attempts to obtain the Krabby Patty secret formula.
- Since SpongeBob knows that this object is a lawn mower, "Life of Crime" takes place after "The Curse of Bikini Bottom," in which he didn't know what a lawn mower was.
