"Patnocchio" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 11. In this episode, Plankton tells Patrick he's his conscience so he can convince the wooden-headed star to steal him a Krabby Patty.



The episode starts with Karen the Computer Fairy telling the story of Patnocchio. Plankton attempts to steal a Krabby Patty from Patrick, but gets burned by the sunlight through his magnifying glass and gets sat on by Patrick. He thinks someone is talking to him, and when he tells this to SpongeBob, he says that the voice is probably his conscience.

Plankton tells Patrick that he is his conscience and that he needs him to buy more Krabby Patties, but Patrick has to do some errands before doing so. After a while of doing these errands, Plankton gets annoyed and crosses out all the errands on Patrick's list and adds one to give Plankton the formula.

When the two go to the Chum Bucket, Plankton tells Patrick to toss the patty into the mail slot, but he accidentally throws it too hard and makes it land on a boat with Pearl and her friends. This forces the two to go to Goo Lagoon and go inside Pearl to get the formula. When they go inside Pearl, a man named Geppetto has the Krabby Patty. While they are fighting, Karen gives Pearl Gush and Flush to take them out of her stomach. The episode ends with Patrick finding his real conscience, and afterwards stomping on Plankton as his conscience thought he was a bug.

Running gags

  • The characters singing in rock n' roll and playing air guitar.
  • Whenever someone tells a lie, their nose grows longer.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on March 23, 2018.[3]
