The tickle belt is an accessory owned by Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. It first appears in the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III."


The tickle belt is basically a dark blue belt with a golden lock in the front. The belt comes with a remote that can make the belt tickle the person who is wearing it at the same time.


The belt tickles enemies into submission or to the point of wetting themselves. The belt can only be taken off by a special key, but it is not very much needed, because it is impossible to try to take it off while being tickled. It tickles so effectively that it leaves its victim rolling on the ground, giggling continuously unless turned off. The tickle belt is used against Man Ray so that he would be nicer to people. It is shown by Man Ray that it is possible to become immune to the tickle belt. It is also shown that the belt's powers can still affect the victim after the belt is removed.

Role in episode

The tickle belt is used on Man Ray throughout the episode whenever he does something bad while SpongeBob and Patrick are training him to be good. Eventually, Man Ray was able to trick SpongeBob into freeing him from the tickle belt by making him believe he turned good. Man Ray then disintegrated SpongeBob and Patrick and preceded to rob a bank. However, Man Ray was unable to as he kept laughing stating that the tickle belt's powers were still effecting him despite having it taken off.
