|Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy|
|Latest appearance:||Glove Universe (online game)|
Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy is a comic book that appeared in the episode "Ditchin'." It also appears as a prize in the online game "Glove Universe" although this time it called "Comic book."
The book's cover is red with a yellow comic book bubble inside it. The title is written in a blue, "3-D" font. On the top left corner is a picture of Mermaid Man's head; on the bottom right corner is a picture of Barnacle Boy's head.
Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy was first and only seen when SpongeBob and Patrick attended the book store. SpongeBob and Patrick had their copies signed by Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy themselves before leaving the book store.
- Oddly, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy acted like they didn't know SpongeBob and Patrick though in previous episodes, they know the two well. Perhaps this comes before all those other episodes.
- SpongeBob read this book, without Patrick's knowledge, in a "The Clash of Triton" short, "The Story of King Neptune" to be exact.
