"Yeti Krabs" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season nine. In this episode, Mr. Krabs tells a story of a Yeti Krab that eats lazy employees, which makes SpongeBob work in overdrive.



At the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs tries to get Squidward to work around the restaurant. However, every task he tries to make him do is either already done by SpongeBob or is quickly done by him. Mr. Krabs tells the two the story of the Yeti Krab, and how he eats workers who are lazy. Afterward, he makes Squidward do the laundry and leaves the restaurant.

SpongeBob is frightened by the story and works extra hard, while Squidward continues being lazy. At the same time, the Yeti Krab comes out from a mountain and goes to the Krusty Krab as he is hungry. When SpongeBob sees him, he panics and works even more harder than before, while Squidward thinks he is Mr. Krabs in disguise.

He gets annoyed by SpongeBob doing so much work and goes outside to dress up as a Yeti Krab so he can fight him. When Mr. Krabs arrives, Squidward freaks out as he realizes the creature is real. The angry Yeti Krabs then puts all three on the grill to cook them.

SpongeBob hears the Yeti Krabs' stomach growling and realizes that the yeti wants to eat them because he's hungry. He cooks up some Krabby Patties, and after eating them, Mr. Krabs sees the Yeti Krab is pleased before he pays the happy Mr. Krabs for the meal. He then leaves with satisfaction, as Mr. Krabs tells his employees to resume duty. Afterward, he gives Squidward orders, only for him to refuse and SpongeBob volunteers to do them.
