The robot tourists[1] are tourists that appear in the console version of the video game SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis at the Bikini Bottom Museum.


The robot tourists appear throughout the level "Snap Happy!" and its variations, "Fussy Photos!" and "Give me a Break!" They are usually seen crowding around exhibits SpongeBob has to photograph. They can be dispatched with a thrown Krabby Patty.

SpongeBob will not continue moving until all tourists in a group are dispatched, even if he has photographed the exhibit they are surrounding, excluding groups surrounding bad exhibits in "Fussy Photos!" and vases in "Give Me a Break!"

One type of tourist has a camera, and when SpongeBob approaches a group of tourists which includes one with a camera, it will face him and ready its camera. If SpongeBob does not throw a patty at the tourist robot with a camera, it will take a photo of him, causing the screen to shake and 10 points to be deducted from the player's score.

They are remote-controlled robots.[1]


They were used in the production of the game.[1]

For a short time, Patrick dated one of the robots, but it did not work out because the robot powered down during a date.[1]
