"Shopping List" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season eleven. In this episode, SpongeBob and Sandy have to collect Krabby Patty ingredients, but Plankton follows their every step.



The episode begins with Mr. Krabs tasking SpongeBob to go out and obtain a list of ingredients, while Plankton is listening to this conversation from afar. SpongeBob starts going around town, looking for the ingredients, while Plankton follows him.

Shopping List 180

Mr. Krabs along with the Krabby Patty’s ingredients

SpongeBob meets Sandy and shows her the shopping list. She decides to help SpongeBob due to the ingredients being hard to get, and they use her submarine to do so, with Plankton going inside a toolbox in the submarine. They go to get a hair of a yeti, milk from a fangtooth fish, and dandruff from the Flying Dutchman. They succeed at getting these ingredients, but every time Plankton tries to receive them, he ends up injured.

When Sandy and SpongeBob have gotten all the ingredients and go back to the Krusty Krab, Plankton takes their submarine with all the ingredients. Sandy and SpongeBob meet the yeti on the ground, and he's angry at them as he lost one of his hairs. Fortunately, Sandy gives him some of her fur for the yeti to wear, and they reach the Krusty Krab.

However, it turns out Mr. Krabs had sent them to get those ingredients to trick Plankton, and that he was ordering the real ingredients in the meantime. This makes Sandy really angry as he made them go through all their difficulties for nothing, and she beats him up for it. The episode ends with Plankton's restaurant exploding due to the fake ingredients being dangerous, causing both him and Mr. Krabs to be going up in the sky.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on February 16, 2018.[1]
