"No Weenies Allowed" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season three. In this episode, SpongeBob tries to get into The Salty Spitoon.




Reg, the bouncer at The Salty Spitoon

SpongeBob and Sandy are at Goo Lagoon. They are about to go swimming in the lake but Sandy points out that SpongeBob is not wearing his swimsuit, so SpongeBob goes into the clothing tent to change. While SpongeBob is in the changing room, he secretly puts on his karate gear, wanting to surprise Sandy. However, when he comes out of the changing room and abruptly attacks Sandy, the latter slashes him, showing she had the same idea. During the battle Sandy hits SpongeBob so hard he goes flying out of the water. Sandy uses this time to get ice cream. When SpongeBob flies back into the water, Sandy pauses her ice cream moment to hit SpongeBob and he goes flying. SpongeBob flies 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 scary 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're 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's 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 Juniors, much to SpongeBob's intense annoyance and humiliation. SpongeBob tries other methods, like telling him a story about how he stubbed his toe while watering his spice garden and only crying for 20 minutes, and wearing a wig to disguise himself. 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.

Two SpongeBobs?

Finally, SpongeBob goes to Weenie Hut Jr's. The patrons talk about special days at Weenie Hut Jr's. and the animatronic server 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 calls Patrick "Tubby," angering him and leading him to attacking SpongeBob. The latter reminds him that he's 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.

Reg becomes amazed about SpongeBob beating up Patrick without even touching him and finally allows him to enter The Salty Spitoon.

but he slips on an ice cube and 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 doctor suggests that SpongeBob is admitted to Weenie Hut General instead right next to the hospital, much to SpongeBob's dismay.
