Synopsis

Mermaid

The mermaids

One night in Bikini Bottom, a mysterious fog appears and the voices of mermaids are heard. That morning, SpongeBob realizes his alarm clock, Gary's shell, Squidward's clarinet, Patrick's cuff links, and Mr. Krabs are missing. While investigating, SpongeBob, Squidward, and Patrick are sucked into the triangle. They find Mr. Krabs, who tells them that he loves all the piles of "resellable stuff." He realizes that Pearl is left alone at the Krusty Krab with all his money, but she gets transported to the triangle too. Pearl and Squidward relax, Mr. Krabs looks for change, and SpongeBob and Patrick look for the mermaids. The mermaid quintet only knows how to "surround themselves with cool new stuff" whenever they feel like. They call SpongeBob's dilemma "TNOP" (totally not our problem). SpongeBob then quickly says upon return, "Unfortunately, I was unable to get the information from the aauugh," and being noticeably tired, he simply collapses. Mr. Krabs realizes SpongeBob desperately needs a Krabby Patty. He finds one and feeds it to SpongeBob. He then
Mall
wonders who made the Krabby Patty. Mr. Krabs wants to go back when he thinks that Plankton might have stolen the formula. The whole group goes to the mermaids, and Pearl wants to go to the mall, and the mermaids want to go too. So the mermaids sing backwards. They get sucked back to Bikini Bottom. Pearl and the mermaids run to the mall while other people look into the pile to find all of their stuff. While the people are reclaiming their property, Mr. Krabs wants to see whether Plankton is actually trying to steal the formula again. He finds Charles who SpongeBob met earlier. It seemed that he caught Plankton trying to steal the formula. Patrick finds his cuff links and puts it on his tuxedo. He says to the driver "home reginald" and then steps inside the limo and drives off.

Trivia

Timeline
Timecards
none
  • The production name for this episode was "Welcome to the Bermuda Triangle," as seen on some of the original character storyboards on Facebook. To take a look, click here.
  • In Turkish version, TOTP is KBSD (Kesinlikle Bizim Sorunumuz Değil). It is translated from English
  • The title card is similar to "The Donut of Shame."
  • Running Gag: Patrick keeps on asking about his cufflinks
  • This is the second time Patrick Star falls in love with a mermaid(s). The first time was in the "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie," where he was in love with Mindy.
  • Mr. Krabs mentioned the Dutchman Triangle in "SpongeBob vs. The Big One."
  • A table from the Krusty Krab can be seen after it warped.
  • When SpongeBob is saying "Oh Mr. Krabs!", you can see a sign that says "Save the Jellyfish". This may be from "SpongeBob's Last Stand."
  • It is unknown if these mermaids know or are related to Mindy and King Neptune from the "SpongeBob SquarePants Movie."

Cultural References

  • The Bikini Bottom Triangle is an obvious spoof of the notorious Bermuda Triangle.
  • The singing mermaids may be a reference to the Sirens in Greek mythology.
  • When SpongeBob eats the Krabby Patty, the reaction was the same in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.
  • One of the mermaids made a reference to "Freakazoid!," a 1990s animated series produced by cartoon legend, Steven Spielberg.

Errors

  • When Mr. Krabs said, "So it must have been that rotten pipsqueak, Plankton," for at least a split second, his left sleeve turned red.
  • After SpongeBob finds Mr. Krabs, they go to the vacuum. Before the things came out, Mr. Krabs had only a towel on. When he popped out of the things, he has clothes.
  • Charles said "and boof your cufflinks are gone. Never to return." to SpongeBob, instead to Patrick.
  • When he was talking to Patrick about his cufflinks, SpongeBob and Squidward go over to see, and Patrick disappears.
  • SpongeBob forgot to look for Gary's shell and his alarm clock. Squidward also forgot to look for his clarinet too.
