"Krabby Patty Creature Feature" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 11. 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 have not become one of the 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, only to re-eat the Secret Patty and turn back into a zombie, to SpongeBob's annoyance. This prompts SpongeBob to feed all the creatures chum, eventually turning them all back to normal. Everyone goes back to the Krusty Krab, wanting regular Krabby Patties. The screen is about to fade to black, but Patrick (still a chum creature) stops it just in time to tell the viewer to "have some". He laughs at this, and the episode finally ends.
