Legal cases

Mr. Krabs is arrested by an agent for selling the poisonous Spongy Patties. The case is the entire community of Bikini Bottom against Eugene H. Krabs, who knows he cannot win the lawsuit. Before the judge makes his final decision, Krabs makes him change his mind when he realizes the judge is a fan of SpongeBob.

The restaurant goes back to normal, and Squidward takes the judge for a ride on the Krusty Sponge Fun Train.

Inspiration and changes

Inspired by Gene Scallop's feedback on a television review, Mr. Krabs decides to make the Krusty Krab SpongeBob-themed and renames it the "Krusty Sponge." Changes include a sign with SpongeBob wearing a Krusty Krab employee hat that reads "The Krusty Sponge" in red letters. Outside the restaurant is a fun train that SpongeBob constantly pedals without a break. Inside, Squidward is dressed in a SpongeBob suit and is put on grill duty.


Due to the poisoned patties called "Spongy Patties," many customers start a trial against Mr. Krabs. The patties turn everyone yellow with olive green spots, making them resemble SpongeBob.

The trial is near an end when Mr. Krabs makes the judge change his mind by allowing him to have unlimited rides on the Fun Train, with Squidward driving it.


  • The Krusty Sponge's monument of a giant SpongeBob holding a giant Krabby Patty is a spoof of the Big Boy Restaurants chain.
  • This is the first time Mr. Krabs changes the name of the Krusty Krab without dropping the "Krusty" part.
