Characters

Synopsis

Following what appears to be Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob and Squidward travel through the many doors before they end up back at the Krusty Krab. They thank their supposed boss for leading them back but he is revealed to actually be Rodger, a RandomLand citizen who turned out to be the customer that wanted to complain about his lack of delivery. Happy to know he is the customer, SpongeBob gives him the patty and Rodger happily eats it and leaves.

However, Mr. Krabs is upset and cries because he has to hand it in for free. He is frustrated and bashes on the cash register but accidentally presses the button that sends him flying through the wall, as punishment for sending his employees on dangerous goose chase.

Production

The episode was confirmed by Kaz on June 25, 2019 while posting on Facebook.[1]

  • The Krusty Krab policy says, "If it's late, it's FREE!" in this episode, even though it said "money back guarantee" in "Pickles."
  • SpongeBob imitates Mr. Krabs while walking around randomly, which is a reference to "Mimic Madness."
  • SpongeBob referenced Krusty Krab as Krabby Krust while in an upside-down house, which is a reference to "Lost in Bikini Bottom."

SpongeBob in RandomLand 017

Note the K=az2 above Krabs' claw

  • The writer of the episode, Kaz, appears as the live-action man whose hair is cut like a lawn.[3]
  • Kaz's name is also included in the episode. When Mr. Krabs is talking about the craziness of RandomLand, one of the many equations seen on the blackboard is "K=az2."
    • A similar thing happened in "The Getaway," where Kaz' name was referenced as a tribute to the writer. Kaz wrote that episode as well.
Squidward's Suicide 1

The most popular image of a supposed screen cap of "Squidward's Suicide"

  • In the scene where a wall of doors appear in front of SpongeBob and Squidward, Squidward opens a door above him to reveal what looks like a copy of his bedroom. However, the room quickly turns into static, and a Squidward head with red eyes and bleeding black mascara flashes onscreen (Red Mist Squidward). The head is likely a reference to Squidward's Suicide (also known as "Red Mist") a popular internet horror story based on SpongeBob, which involves Squidward committing suicide and having red mist eyes.
    • In the UK and international digital versions of the episode, the scene was cut out.
  • This and "SpongeBob's Bad Habit" are the highest viewed 11-minute episodes of season 12.

  • The bathing female has a tattoo on her leg that resembles Goofy from the Mickey Mouse series.
  • According to storyboard artist Adam Paloian, the second variation of Squidward during the door scene is a reference to the works of Basil Wolverton, an artist known for his detailed grotesques of bizarre or misshapen people.[4]
  • The dinosaurs during the chase sequence were modeled after the real life punk band the Ramones.
  • That Little Scene were Spongebob and Squidward gets swirled into all of those pipes and stuff and the Music by Ego Plum Accompying by it is a Homage to the 1980 Film by Richard Elfman. Forbidden Zone. Who's Music was Famous Simpsons theme Composer. Danny
