Crime and Funishment (also known as Bikini Bottom's Most Wanted) is a SpongeBob SquarePants Cine-Manga book that contains four episodes that were transcribed into manga form. It was published by Tokyopop on April 13, 2004. There are 96 pages in total.



"A crime wave hits the underwater town of Bikini Bottom, and SpongeBob SquarePants is right in the middle of it! Whether he's "borrowing" balloons with his best friend Patrick, trying to cover up accidentally killing the health inspector at the Krusty Krab, getting his boat stolen by his boating instructor or fighting evil with the aging Mermaid Man, you can count on SpongeBob to be the center of all the action!"



The cover features mug shots of both SpongeBob and Patrick on a wooden surface with the name of the book.


  • For some reason, the title card for "No Free Rides" is not used for the cover of its book counterpart.
  • This book accidentally calls "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V" "Superfriends."

Differences between the episodes and the comics

"Life of Crime"

  • In the episode, Mr. Krabs reacts after Patrick mentions Sandy's hedge clippers and SpongeBob mentions Plankton's lawnmower. In the book, these reactions are not present.

"No Free Rides"

  • In the episode, Mrs. Puff screams when she sees SpongeBob and his parents. In the book, this doesn't happen.
  • In the episode, Margaret says, "I think you've made your point, dear." and Harold gets embarrassed. He then says, "Mrs. Puff, we were starting to think SpongeBob was never going to get his license. But you never gave up on his. You never quit! You never took the easy way out!" and then Mrs. Puff replies with, "Well, I... uh.. Okay." The part where Harold gets embarrassed and the part where he praises Mrs. Puff are swapped in the book.
  • In the episode, Margaret is the one that says, "We wanted to make sure that Mrs. Puff, the greatest driving teacher in the world was here to see this." In the book, Harold says that line.
