"Krabby Patty Creature Feature" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season eleven. In this episode, a new secret Krabby Patty formula has disastrous results for Bikini Bottom, and only SpongeBob can save the day.



The episode begins with Mr. Krabs delivering Krabby Patties for two customers, only for them to be bored of them and want something new. Mr. Krabs takes SpongeBob to an underground lab to show him that he got Sandy to make a new type of Krabby Patty called the Secret Patty. Despite SpongeBob disliking this method, they still serve these patties to the customers.

However, after everyone eats the patties, they all become Krabby Patty creatures. The creatures start going around Bikini Bottom, feeding people their body parts so they become Krabby Patty creatures as well. This makes SpongeBob panic and hide in the dumpster.

Moments later, Perch Perkins is shown to be one of the few people who haven't become Krabby Patty creatures. Right before the creatures turn him into one, he tells SpongeBob that Plankton has not become a creature as well.

SpongeBob hides in the Chum Bucket and locks the doors. He tells Plankton about the situation, but only believes it when he sees it happening. Eventually he and Karen become Krabby Patty creatures, and SpongeBob climbs a tower of chum to get away from them. Fortunately, some chum falls into the Krabby Patty Patrick's mouth, causing him to become sick and throw up the Secret Patty, becoming normal again. This prompts SpongeBob to feed all the creatures chum, eventually turning them all back to normal. The episode ends with everyone going back to the Krusty Krab, wanting regular Krabby Patties.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on July 4, 2017.[1]
