==Synopsis==
The episode starts with Patrick opening [[Patrick Star's house|his rock]], which has an awful stench, and waking up. He puts his body on the floor, and a lady with two worms walks by his house. The lady smells the stench and uses her worms to block the stench from her nose, and then she goes on with her day. Patrick starts to walk to the [[Krusty Krab]], while making his house evaporate at the same time.
+
The episode begins with Patrick waking up and getting out of his rock so he can walk to the Krusty Krab. Everyone in the restaurant runs out due to Patrick's hideous smells, but when SpongeBob smells his stench, he's amazed at just how smelly he is. While SpongeBob decides to smell Patrick again, Mr. Krabs smells an awful stench and investigates what it is. He finds out that the stench is coming from Patrick, so he kicks him out of the restaurant. This makes Patrick angry and wants to revolt for his stink-dependence.
   
When Patrick reaches the Krusty Krab, everyone runs out because of the awful smell Patrick has. SpongeBob is then seen cooking, and smells the awful stench of Patrick. SpongeBob asks Patrick when was the last time he took a bath, but then he said that his mind couldn't go back far. SpongeBob afterwards compliments Patrick's smell, since it is so bad. He then decides to smell it again.

Patrick starts messing around in grimy places, but when he starts messing around in the Dump, he eventually becomes so filthy he's unrecognizable. Patrick starts going around town in this filthy form, causing him to get listed in the newspaper as Filthy Muck. SpongeBob finds out about this news and tries to look for him, eventually finding him at the Dump. Since Filthy Muck has a force-field of stink, SpongeBob puts on a filthy mustache on himself to prevent the smell, but this leads to him getting into Filthy Muck's game and starts to go around in the grime as well.
   
Mr. Krabs is then seen playing with his fake bank, until he smells Patrick's stench. He tries to find out where the smell is coming from, until eventually he finds out it's coming from the kitchen. After learning its Patrick, he promptly kicks out Patrick and tells him to not come back until he gets rid of his smell. Patrick refuses and decides to play in the trash, so Patrick goes to many filthy areas in [[Bikini Bottom]] and becomes more and more filthy. He ends up at [[The Dump]] and is astonished by the filthiness of it, and goes in.
+
Another news article comes out about how Filthy Muck now has a partner. SpongeBob and Filthy Muck start going all over town, causing people to run away due to their smells, except for Old Man Jenkins as he can't smell. Eventually the citizens have had enough of this, so one day, they confront the two gross creatures and riot against them. SpongeBob cleans himself so they don't riot against him, but he tries to tell the citizens that Filthy Muck is his friend and he doesn't want him to get hurt. However, the citizens still try to run them out of town.
[[File:Filthy Muck (High Quality).jpeg|thumb|239x239px|This marked as Filthy Muck's first appearance]]
 
The next morning, Patrick (now known as Filthy Muck) is seen entirely covered in garbage, going down from the Dump into a lane. Rube takes a picture of Patrick and the scene changes to a kid holding a newspaper telling everyone that a Filthy Muck has been spotted around town. A guy with a big nose sees this and puts a humongous clip on his nose. Filthy Muck is then seen at a café, making everyone run away. However, Old Man Jenkins does not, since he cannot smell Patrick's stench.
 
   
Back at the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob sees Filthy Muck on the newspaper and gives a speech about him. The fish at the restaurant give plaudits to it, and SpongeBob goes looking for Patrick. He ends up at the dump, where he sees Filthy Muck, but he can't get close to him since he smells so bad, so SpongeBob puts some slime under his nose to do the trick. Filthy Muck then holds SpongeBob and puts slime all over him, and SpongeBob calls himself Little Yuck. The two then start playing around in the mud and slime in the same places Patrick played in the mud and slime before.
+
Eventually SpongeBob tries to clean Filthy Muck, and tells everyone if they work to clean him, he'll turn normal again. Everyone does so, but Filthy Muck completely disappears after getting cleaned. It turns out Patrick had gone to take a bath, and the episode ends with Patrick letting go of his towel, exposing his posterior to everyone.
 
Rube takes a picture of Little Yuck and Filthy Muck, and the little kid holds the newspaper once again, saying that Filthy Muck has found a playmate. The big nosed fish gets even more scared because of this. Some fish are then seen running out of a [[Bistro|restaurant]], while Little Yuck and Filthy Muck are eating the leftovers inside the restaurant. However, Old Man Jenkins is not affected. A crowd is then seen running away from a outdoor theater, and Little Yuck and Filthy Muck use the instruments they left behind. Old Man Jenkins says they stink, as in their music is bad. They are then seen in [[Glove World!]], and then back at the dump.
 
 
While Little Yuck and Filthy Muck are at the dump, a [[Angry mob|crowd of angry fish]] surround them. The crowd tells them that they are gonna make them flee, but then Little Yuck reveals himself to be SpongeBob, Bikini Bottom's favorite fry cook at the Krusty Krab. After recalling this, they let SpongeBob go on the condition that he clean up but they still want to get Filthy Muck out of town. SpongeBob doesn't want them to make Filthy Muck flee though, since he's Patrick and Patrick is SpongeBob's best friend. So SpongeBob and Filthy Muck run away and get chased by the crowd.
 
 
SpongeBob takes Filthy Muck to a [[Boat Wash|boat washing place]] to get cleaned, but it doesn't work. The crowd go inside it too, but their torches go out. SpongeBob is then seen at a dry cleaning place, but Filthy Muck isn't cleaned by that. Then the crowd of fish smash into the dry cleaning place. SpongeBob is later seen using a hose to wash out Filthy Muck, but they are surrounded by the crowd of fish. However, SpongeBob suggests to them that they could just clean Filthy Muck out themselves, so they do so.
 
 
However, when they clean Filthy Muck, Patrick doesn't appear in the inside. SpongeBob becomes sad, but the real Patrick appears, in his shower clothing. Patrick says that when he got kicked out of the Krusty Krab, he decided to take a bath so he could enter to get food. SpongeBob is glad, but realizes that Filthy Muck was real. Old Man Jenkins is then seen freaking out, as SpongeBob questions this sudden change in behavior and the old man reveals since Patrick's shower clothes fell off of Patrick and he was showing his butt. Everyone laughs, and then Filthy Muck is seen on a hill, with Rube taking a picture to end off the episode.

"The Ballad of Filthy Muck" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season twelve. In this episode, Patrick takes his grime to a new extreme, playing around in so much trash that he becomes unrecognizable.

CharactersEdit

SynopsisEdit

The episode begins with Patrick waking up and getting out of his rock so he can walk to the Krusty Krab. Everyone in the restaurant runs out due to Patrick's hideous smells, but when SpongeBob smells his stench, he's amazed at just how smelly he is. While SpongeBob decides to smell Patrick again, Mr. Krabs smells an awful stench and investigates what it is. He finds out that the stench is coming from Patrick, so he kicks him out of the restaurant. This makes Patrick angry and wants to revolt for his stink-dependence.

Filthy Muck (High Quality)

This marked as Filthy Muck's first appearance

Patrick starts messing around in grimy places, but when he starts messing around in the Dump, he eventually becomes so filthy he's unrecognizable. Patrick starts going around town in this filthy form, causing him to get listed in the newspaper as Filthy Muck. SpongeBob finds out about this news and tries to look for him, eventually finding him at the Dump. Since Filthy Muck has a force-field of stink, SpongeBob puts on a filthy mustache on himself to prevent the smell, but this leads to him getting into Filthy Muck's game and starts to go around in the grime as well.

Another news article comes out about how Filthy Muck now has a partner. SpongeBob and Filthy Muck start going all over town, causing people to run away due to their smells, except for Old Man Jenkins as he can't smell. Eventually the citizens have had enough of this, so one day, they confront the two gross creatures and riot against them. SpongeBob cleans himself so they don't riot against him, but he tries to tell the citizens that Filthy Muck is his friend and he doesn't want him to get hurt. However, the citizens still try to run them out of town.

Eventually SpongeBob tries to clean Filthy Muck, and tells everyone if they work to clean him, he'll turn normal again. Everyone does so, but Filthy Muck completely disappears after getting cleaned. It turns out Patrick had gone to take a bath, and the episode ends with Patrick letting go of his towel, exposing his posterior to everyone.

The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on November 19, 2018.[1]
