"What if SpongeBob Was Gone? (Mr. Krabs)" is a SpongeBob SquarePants What Ever Happened to SpongeBob? short. In this short, Mr. Krabs is making Krabby Patties.



The short begins with Mr. Krabs making Krabby Patties without SpongeBob. As he serves them, he trips on soda and accidentally throws it on Frankie-Billy.

He smells something in the kitchen, which turns out to be the patties burning. Mr. Krabs then blows the fire out, but he drops his hat on the stove, causing a fire in the kitchen.

With the Krusty Krab being ruined, and everyone running away, including Squidward, Mr. Krabs realizes that if SpongeBob was there, everything would have been fine and that he needs him, and then the short ends.
