"Captain Pipsqueak" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 13. In this episode, Plankton joins the League of E.V.I.L. in another attempt to steal the Krabby Patty secret formula.



Plankton as Captain Pipsqueak.

The episode begins at the Chum Bucket, where Plankton failed to steal the Krabby Patty secret formula again. He later watches a Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy episode on TV and gets an idea to join the E.V.I.L. force.

Plankton tries different disguises until Karen gives a green thumbs up. Plankton then goes to find the secret lair which happens to be accessible by going through a dumpster. Once there, there are many wanting to join the force. They try out and Plankton says he wants to steal the formula for world domination. They decide to choose Plankton to join the force.

SpongeBob, Mr. Krabs, and Squidward inside the Dirty Bubble.

With Plankton in the force, they commit many evil acts. They come to the Krusty Krab and with a distraction Plankton steals the formula and they find that it was just a recipe for a sandwich. They get disappointed, give the formula back to Mr. Krabs, and kick him out of the force.
