Hooks are a fishing equipment object that first appear in the episode "Karate Choppers" and later play a major role in the episode "Hooky." They are known to be very harmful toward Bikini Bottomites and other sea creatures.

Description

They are fish hooks used by fishermen and contain plastic fish attached to them that vary in appearance. The ones at Fish Hooks Park have cubed cheese attached to them to lure fish into going on them.

Role in series

"Karate Choppers"

A fish is seen using a fishing hook by constantly flinging it in and out of the water. The performance of this action reminds SpongeBob and Sandy of karate, a sport which they are prohibited from engaging in.

"Hooky"

At the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs warns everyone that the hooks have returned to Bikini Bottom and urges everyone to avoid them at all costs.

Later on, Patrick tells SpongeBob that the carnival has returned to town and encourages him to leave work to attend it. However, the so-called "carnival" is then revealed to be Fish Hooks Park, much to SpongeBob's horror.

Patrick indulges in the free cheese attached to the hooks and plays on them. SpongeBob tries to resist, but Patrick ultimately encourages him. Conforming to peer pressure, SpongeBob joins Patrick in playing on the hooks. They swiftly manage to avoid near-death experiences possible. Mr. Krabs eventually witnesses what the boys are doing and strictly prohibits them from the hooks or else consequences will follow.

The following day, Patrick breaks his promise and plans on playing in Fish Hooks Park again, encouraging SpongeBob to skip work and do the same. However, the latter refuses and keeps his promise. Upon walking to work, SpongeBob encounters a hook in the middle of the street and tries to resist, but subsequently gives up and plays on them once again.

The hook manages to be unremovable from his pants. SpongeBob then confronts Mr. Krabs about the hook and, with enough courage, admits that he was playing on them despite his warnings. As comeuppance, SpongeBob is forced to remove both his pants and his underwear and suffer the humiliation of public nudity.

"Something Smells"

Two fish reel themselves up with a hook after smelling SpongeBob's breath, essentially committing suicide in the process.

"Don't Look Now"

Hooks play yet another prominent role in this episode. The movie that SpongeBob and Patrick go to see, Fisherman 4: Attack of the Hook, is a horror film about a fisherman reeling fish out of the ocean using a hook.

Later that night, Squidward tries to prank SpongeBob and Patrick by dressing up as the fisherman from the movie and threatening to turn them into fish sticks, scaring the pair with hooks.

"The Night Patty"

The Fisherman uses a hook on SpongeBob with a fishing rod to get steal money from him, but he resists and ends up deep-frying him. SpongeBob ends up discovering that the Fisherman steals money from everyone every night as part of tradition.

Role in video games

The hooks are seen during the bungee-jumping challenges SpongeBob must perform in the SpongeBob SquarePants video games Battle for Bikini Bottom and The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. They are also used as transportation sources to reach a destined height in Revenge of the Flying Dutchman, in which SpongeBob places his jellyfish net onto hooks to activate them. In Lights, Camera, Pants! and Dutchman's Dash they can be used as a ride, while in other games they are used as hazards, such as Jelly Jumpin' Jamboree and Drawn to Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition.

Trivia

  • In "Karate Choppers," a fish is seen dipping a hook in the water under the bridge of Seashell Park even though it would be cannibalism for a fish to eat another fish.
  • SpongeBob has some fish hooks in his house, specifically in his living room for decoration.
