"ChefBob" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from Season 11. In this episode, when Mr. Krabs puts in an open kitchen, SpongeBob gets stage fright and has to invent a new persona.



This episode begins at the Krusty Krab, where the customers are watching SpongeBob cook instead of spending money as Mr. Krabs desires. Mr. Krabs then realizes that SpongeBob has talent and decides to put on an open kitchen by smashing a hole in the wall. SpongeBob gets nervous and hides in the dressing room, but Mr. Krabs threatens to fire SpongeBob if he does not perform.

SpongeBob goes out to perform, but his stage fright can be visible from making a Krabby Patty with the wrong ingredients. SpongeBob hides under the grill, but while under the grill, he decides to make a puppet with a paper lunch sack that he finds. The puppet became an instant success, but it begins to make jokes that infuriate SpongeBob, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs. The puppet becomes alive and starts to make insulting jokes, which the customers appreciate as comedy.

After the puppet makes fun of Squidward, SpongeBob fights with the puppet, causing the customers to leave. Afterwards, the puppet is "fired" and gets kicked out of the restaurant by Squidward.

The episode ends with ChefBob having his own show even after clearly being torn to shreds outside, causing Mr. Krabs, Squidward, and SpongeBob to faint in shock.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on March 23, 2018.[1]
