List of episodes

"The Krabby Patty That Ate Bikini Bottom" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season eight. In this episode, a Krabby Patty grows too large after Mr. Krabs adds Sandy's scientific ingredients to it.



While he was looking for spare change as usual in his cheap ways, Mr. Krabs noticed an over-sized soy bean near
Sandy's treedome. Interested in what could have enlarged the plant, he asked Sandy a tour of her residence. Sandy revealed the growth serum that made the plant enlarged, prompting Krabs to steal it out of sight. Vacating the dome and entering the Krusty Krab, he called SpongeBob for a Krabby Patty to test the growth serum and found that it worked. The experiment, to Krabs's satisfied impression, worked, guaranteeing another money-making scheme. However, the patty kept growing until havoc started.

Mr. Krabs still thinking it would make him rich, tried to keep SpongeBob and Squidward at the Krusty Krab to work until Mr. Krabs sees the cash register getting buried by it. He then runs to save it but is then swallowed up as well. SpongeBob and Squidward then ran away as the Krabby Patty devours the whole Krusty Krab completely. In the Chum Bucket, Plankton sees it, and thinking that it was the biggest Krabby Patty that has ever seen runs to it. SpongeBob tries to warn him that he has to get away from the patty, but he never listens, gettng swallowed up as well. Now expanding to a colossal scale, it began consuming Bikini Bottom

SpongeBob runs hoping to find a solution at Sandy's house, finds her treedome destroyed. Sandy calls to him from her helicopter, and she reveals that the only way to reverse the extending process was if SpongeBob got direct contact with the big patty. SpongeBob complied and absorbed the giant mass of meat into his absorbent body. Everything was back to normal except for SpongeBob in Krabby Patty form and huge. The Krabby Patties which were absorbed were added as Pre-Absorbed Patties in the Krusty Krab. The episode ends with Mr. Krabs selling rare absorbed Krabby Patties at the Krusty Krab while SpongeBob makes it with his thumb from the Krabby Patty, because he was elongated with absorbed meat.

  • This is the second time Mr. Krabs entered Sandy's treedome. He first entered in "Overbooked".
  • Mr. Krabs didn't need a helmet, since he is a crab. Crabs can breathe air and water, but this question is to why in "Overbooked" he wore one.
  • There are eleven Krabby Patties on the title card.
  • When Mr. Krabs is using a magnet to search for money and attracts the other magnet, the sand only covers the other magnet itself. When the sand washes away, a rope can be seen attached to that magnet.
  • Mr. Krabs magnet was a failed scheme, as money is non-magnetic.
  • This marks the second appearance of Sandy's puzzle cube, first being "House Sittin' for Sandy."
  • This is the third time Sandy's helicopter is seen. The first was in "SpongeBob SquarePants vs. The Big One" when she built it and the second was in "Sweet and Sour Squid."
  • This is the third time Mr. Krabs calls his cash register Cashy. The first two episodes were "SpongeBob SquarePants vs. The Big One" and "Sponge-Cano!."

Cultural References

  • This episode is a parody of the 1958 movie The Blob and its 1988 remake.
  • This episode could also be a parody of the Goosebumps book that is also another parody of The Blob called "The Blob That Ate Everyone", except the plot is a little different.
  • The title of this episode is possibly a spoof of the title of an already parody 1999 song called "The Pizza That Ate Chicago" by Tom Paxton.
  • Mr. Krabs notes that Sandy's Treedome is "so much bigger on the inside", this could possibly a joke on the long running sci-fi series Doctor Who as this phrase is used to describe the TARDIS.


  • In the kitchen the Krabby Patty eats SpongeBob's left shoe and sock. After SpongeBob runs out of the kitchen, it reappears for no apparent reason and remains like that for the rest of the episode.
  • In Sandy's Treedome, bubbles appeared during motion like it was underwater, even though the Treedome is dry. There were two such occasions; one was when Mr. Krabs put the phone down.
  • Sandy should've gotten angry at Mr. Krabs for using a whole lot of the serum, which caused the giant patty in the first place.
  • When SpongeBob makes Krabby Patties from the giant patty, they do not grow along with the giant Krabby Patty, even though they have growth serum on them.
