Mr. Krabs with a Krusty Dog

After preparing a large batch of Krabby Patties, SpongeBob moulds the leftover Krabby Patty meat into a strange shape that resembles a hot dog. He calls it the Krusty Dog and Mr. Krabs starts serving it for twice the amount of a Krabby Patty. The Krusty Dogs quickly become popular and Mr. Krabs eventually decides to remove Krabby Patties from the menu. He even replaces the grill with a hot dog rotisserie machine, much to SpongeBob's dismay.

SpongeBob soon teams up with Squidward to get rid of the Krusty Dogs and bring back the Krabby Patties. Squidward pretends that he is suffering abdominal pain due to the Krusty Dog and SpongeBob gives a speech trying to persuade the customers to go back to eating Krabby Patties, but neither one of these attempts work. In a last-ditch attempt to abolish the Krusty Dogs, SpongeBob stuffs a balloon inside one and quickly pumps air into it after he serves it to a customer. The Krusty Dog explodes in the customer's face and everyone panics, fleeing the scene.

"Krusty Dog?!"

Mr. Krabs decides to bring the Krabby Patties back and Squidward is made to stand outside the restaurant advertising the patties, only to be kicked by a woman who thinks he did not receive good enough education.

  • This is the third episode in which Squidward wears a costume to promote the Krusty Krab. The first one was "Bossy Boots" and the second was "The Krusty Sponge."
  • The Krusty Krab was shown to serve a hot dog known as the Krusty Kelp Dog in "Nasty Patty."
  • SpongeBob boils the very first Krusty Dog in water, but in reality, if one boils hamburger meat in water, it would just fall apart. Though hot dogs in real life are made with ground meat, they are tightly packed in a casing which keeps them from falling apart.
  • This is the second episode where the grill is removed. The first is "Bossy Boots."
  • Innuendo: The line that Squidward says "It only seemed to increased their appetites for wieners."
    • Squidward also says, "We'll do it until Mr. Krabs' whole wiener thing blows up right into his face."

Cultural references

  • SpongeBob seen unconscious with open eyes is similar to Kate from 1990 film Mermaids who got rescued by nuns after suffering major drowning.


  • When Mr. Krabs crosses out Krabby Patties on the menu, a woman is eating one right behind him.
  • SpongeBob has trouble holding a pair of tongs, but when he boils the very first Krusty Dog prior, he uses tongs with no trouble. Although he is missing the Krabby Patties the second time he holds them.
  • SpongeBob should not have been able to see "The Krusty Dogs" on the sign because the back of it was facing the Krusty Krab window, which is where he was.
  • After SpongeBob takes 16 patties with the patty cutter, it is shown that he blew out 12 patties, and when they go to the table, 39 patties go on it.
  • After Mr. Krabs crosses the Krabby Patty off the menu and the ambulance comes, Squidward's workstation is not seen in the Krusty Krab.

Running gags

  • Someone kicking Squidward whenever he wears a costume.
