Differences between this book and the episode
The scene where SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs are making krabby patties is not in the book.
The book ends with the train crashing into the bank and SpongeBob getting the formula back from Plankton. In the episode this book is based on, Mr. Krabs has to pay for the damage done to the bank, and the final scene jumps 75 years into the future where the elderly SpongeBob tells his grandson the events of the episode.
