History

According to the comic, Untold Tales of the Goofy Goobers, Goofy Goober's used to be a concert hall.

"The Goofy Newbie" reveals that Goofy Goober's was founded by Reginald Goober, who was nicknamed "Goofy". Before freezers, he was selling his ice cream warm while putting it on tree sticks.

Role in series

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

SpongeBob and Patrick go here after the grand opening of the Krusty Krab 2. SpongeBob is first shown at the nut bar, bawling because he did not get the promotion. Patrick then comes along and orders a meal. SpongeBob depressingly begins heading for home until he sees that Patrick has ordered a Triple Gooberberry Sunrise, and decides to order one too.

The two proceed to continuously order Triple Gooberberry Sunrises, splattering the waiter in ice cream, and eventually becoming drunk to the point where the two go up on stage with Goofy Goober and fall over. The next morning, SpongeBob wakes up with a hangover.

"The Battle of Bikini Bottom"

Background art from the episode.

It briefly appears in a flashback of SpongeBob and Patrick having ice cream. The restaurant is not named in the episode, but background artwork from the episode confirms that the restaurant is Goofy Goober's.

"Patnocchio"

Patrick goes here with Plankton who pretends to be Patrick's conscience to get one double chocolate molar blowout. After both of their noses grow big, they have a nose fight. After making a mess, they get kicked out.

"The Goofy Newbie"

Patrick gets a job at Goofy Goober's when he finds out that the employees get free ice cream, and it is where the majority of the episode takes place.

SpongeBob helps Patrick do his job properly but he gets fired from the restaurant when he ends up eating so much ice cream that he freezes the world for five billion years.

"Enemies à la Mode"

It appears when young Walter gives young Patrick some of his ice cream. Patrick goes berserk and drives the ice cream truck into the building, destroying it and covering it in ice cream.

Goofy Scoopers

SpongeBob and Patrick try to reunite the Goofy Scoopers band. [1]

Trivia

  • According to Vincent Waller, from 2005 to 2014, Paramount Pictures formerly did not allow any movie-exclusive content to be used in the SpongeBob SquarePants series. This is why Goofy Goober's was only seen in one brief, unnamed cameo appearance in the series until "Patnocchio."
    • Additionally, the background art for Goofy Goober's was entirely redrawn, rather than reused from the movie.
    • Vincent Waller recalled, "We couldn't even use images of Goofy Goober from the movie back then."[2]
  • It was the first location from the movie to fully appear in the series.
  • It is a parody of old-time-themed ice cream parlor restaurants such as the former Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour chain, and with a menu similar to that of the fast food chain Dairy Queen.
