The Real Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy Movie is a motion picture film directed by SpongeBob SquarePants. It appears in the episode "Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy VI: The Motion Picture." The film stars Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy as themselves, as they fight Kelp Thing in Fort Lox. It was premiered in the Krusty Krab. The members of the Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy Fan Club came to watch the movie because the other movie was sold out.


The movie takes place at Fort Lox, home to over 5 billion Krabby Patties. Kelp Thing plans to steal all the patties, but Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy try to stop him, because it is forbidden. Kelp Thing also tells them that they won't defeat him this time and the fight begins. This movie includes Sandy Cheeks as a double stunt for Mermaid Man, and karate chops Kelp Thing away. Then, Mermaid Man says that Kelp Thing may not win the Krabby Patties, but the battle rages on. The movie ends with Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy showing up their rings and Mermaid Man saying "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, unite!" and they put their rings together.


These are only the ones shown in the SpongeBob SquarePants episode.

The movie

  • The movie was first produced differently. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy were driving the invisible boatmobile (Pearl Krabs) and were pulled by Incidental 41 up a rocky hill. Later, Mermaid Man recited the plot of episode #912 before the movie ended. However, it was ruined because Patrick Star had the lens cap on.


  • The movie received negative reception from the fans, but they still enjoyed it very much.


  • The transcript of the movie is the fixed one with no skips. However, in the real episode, the movie included skips, like when they skipped Mermaid Man's "It is."
