"Krusty Koncessionaires" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 12. In this episode, the Krusty Krab crew goes to a big concert to sell Krabby Patties in the stands.



In the beginning of the episode, SpongeBob and Squidward are at a concert for The Low Tides, although Squidward is more interested in Claire St. Claire and his clarinet that plays perfect notes. Meanwhile, Mr. Krabs wants the two to sell Krabby Patties, while he puts a sign at the back of the stage.

While SpongeBob sells patties using different methods with a vacuum, Squidward sees the backstage door and fantasizes of what would happen if he went in there, which includes playing the clarinet with Claire St. Claire. To ensure SpongeBob does not come inside with him, Squidward tells him to serve one side of the crowd. SpongeBob is disappointed, as he was looking forward to spending time with Squidward, but goes with it anyway. Then, he proceeds to enter the studio. However, along the way, he encounters a guard who tries to beat him up. He gathers fans to distract him, and finds Patrick's room, only to be beaten up by the same guard.

Meanwhile, SpongeBob has already served his entire section, and when he sees Squidward's side of the crowd still starving, he decides to sell patties over there for their sake. Squidward sneaks backstage, and hides in a violin case, only to be mistaken for an actual violin when The Low Tides begin to play on stage. Mr. Krabs tries to put the sign in the back of the stage, but gets caught up in the curtains. SpongeBob realizes that The Low Tides have not received Krabby Patties, so he tries to send them patties, but accidentally causes them to leave the stage. Mr. Krabs shows the wrinkled sign up on the stage, but the way it is folded from Mr. Krabs being tangled causes the crowd to think the Krabby Patties were not good as they start booing. Mr. Krabs does the Peg Leg Waltz to win the crowd back as a result, with SpongeBob and Squidward joining in, the latter scaring away the whole crowd as a result. The Low Tides hear this, and Claire St. Claire is impressed by Squidward, thus prompting Squidward to, literally, die happy. But Mr. Krabs revives him to collect cash, and he is still happy, as the episode ends.
