The Cramp is a dance move seen in the episode "Slimy Dancing."


It is made up (accidentally) by Patrick and Squidward at the Talent Show which wins him first prize. In the epilogue Tommy Rechid does the dance. His mother, Norma Rechid walks in on him thinking he is really hurt and calls 911. Tommy claims that he is only doing the cramp and all of the main characters (except Sandy, Plankton, and Gary) come in and randomly join in on the dance.


  • Mr. Krabs joins in at the end even though he was not part of it in the first place.
  • When Norma calls 911, it is actually shown that she presses 811.
