"FarmerBob" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season twelve. In this episode, SpongeBob and Patrick work a day on Old Man Jenkins' farm, much to his dismay.



The episode begins with Mr. Krabs making SpongeBob work for Old Man Jenkins at his farm so he can pay his grocery bill. He also sends Patrick to help SpongeBob do his chores.

Their tasks are to get eggs from oysters, feed the worm hogs, milk Ol' Bessy, and harvest Old Man Jenkins' field of kelp. They finish all these chores and after they get off the tractor due to finishing the last chore, SpongeBob and Patrick get excited for the barn dance.

However, the tractor is still running and crashes into the barn. In order to still have a barn dance, SpongeBob and Patrick raise a baby barn to a grown-up. After that, they have the barn dance, until some aliens arrive due to seeing an invitation made by the tractor on the crop field.

They hangout for a while until they have to leave to destroy the universe. Mr. Krabs arrives to pick SpongeBob and Patrick up, and as they are driving, they get abducted by a UFO.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on August 7, 2018.[1]
