"No Weenies Allowed" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 3. In this episode, SpongeBob tries to act tough in order to get into The Salty Spitoon.



One day at Goo Lagoon, during their karate match, Sandy dominates SpongeBob like a punching bag with her overwhelming karate skills and sends him flying so far he ends up at a place with a group of strong men waiting in line for something. SpongeBob flies into one of the strong men, who gets angry, thinking SpongeBob is a piece of paper. He turns around to see who threw the "paper" at him, and SpongeBob gets scared because the man is intimidating and tough. SpongeBob covers it up by hiding until Sandy comes and he comes out. Sandy comes and asks what they are standing in line for and the man says they are waiting in line for The Salty Spitoon, the toughest sailor club in Bikini Bottom, which only the toughest fish can get in.

The bouncer, Reg, allows Sandy in, as she is one of the toughest fighters in Bikini Bottom, but rejects SpongeBob because he is too weak. Reg suggests that SpongeBob should instead go to Weenie Hut Jr. and then Super Weenie Hut Jr's, much to SpongeBob's annoyance and humiliation. SpongeBob tries other methods, like telling him a story about how he painfully stubbed his toe while watering his spice garden and only crying for 20 minutes, wearing a wig to disguise himself, and posing as a tattoo on a man's arm. A sponge called "Drifter" is also shown and mistaken for SpongeBob, but the real SpongeBob shows up with a clown wig and Reg lets the Drifter in.

Finally, SpongeBob goes to Weenie Hut Jr's. The patrons talk about special days at the restaurant and the animatronic server meanly calls SpongeBob a weenie, annoying him in the process. The patrons then suggest ways for SpongeBob to prove his toughness and gain entrance to The Salty Spitoon. SpongeBob figures that the quickest way to do so would be to win a fight, but since he is not very strong, he decides to stage a fight with Patrick.

The fight with Patrick is supposed to be the latter letting him win. They sling insults at each other to make the fight seem more realistic, but SpongeBob meanly calls Patrick "Tubby," angering him and leading him to angrily attacking SpongeBob. The latter reminds him that he is supposed to let him win and Patrick proceeds to beat himself up as if there were an invisible person attacking him, even flinging himself into the background.

"This is the happiest day of my life!"

Reg becomes amazed about SpongeBob beating up Patrick without even touching him and finally allows him to enter The Salty Spitoon. A joyful SpongeBob runs inside the club, but he clumsily slips on an ice cube and accidentally falls, putting him in the hospital. He initially is admitted to the Bikini Bottom Hospital, but while talking to the doctor, he refers to his injuries as "boo-boos." The episode closes with the doctor suggesting that SpongeBob is admitted to Weenie Hut General instead right next to the hospital, much to SpongeBob's dismay.
