Role in episode

On his way home from the Bikini Bottom Hospital, mourning his spatula, who was hospitalized, SpongeBob finds a fancy-looking spatula made of machinery. Still thinking Spat was the only spatula to flip Krabby Patties, he ignores it but comes back thinking that he does need a replacement.

Almost touching him, an employee, who works at the shop selling the metallic spatula, smacks SpongeBob's hand, telling him that Le Spatula is highly expensive. SpongeBob replies eagerly wanting to buy him, but it costs all of his property until he sells his outfit. SpongeBob is naked when he walks back to work in front of the public.

At the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs goes to the kitchen to see what SpongeBob is doing and the latter is showing off the fancy tool. An impressed Krabs knows the new spatula will flip more patties and make more money, only to find out later that he is worthless, and he only cooks fancy food. Le Spatula then laughs and runs away after spitting in SpongeBob's face.

SpongeBob goes back for his old spatula and apologizes for buying Le Spatula.

Trivia

  • Le Spatula is similar to the hydro-dynamic spatula from the pilot episode "Help Wanted," in that he has multiple spatula heads built in.
  • His name is not grammatically correct. Since in French, nouns have genders, the French word from "spatula" ("spatule"), the correct way would be "La Spatule."
