This SpongeBob Fan Theory About Krabby Patties Just Might Be True

There has always been something in the pit of my stomach that tells me that there is some truth to the name “Krabby Patty”, and now this fan theory is explaining it all. What do we know about the most popular food item in Bikini Bottom? A Krabby Patty has always appeared innocent and known to be the burger that is all the rage to almost every fish in the sea. As the series went on, the Krusty Krab has always been packed and busy with hungry customers who are waiting to get a bite of the restaurant’s famous burger made by SpongeBob. A Krabby Patty is so good that it has been Plankton’s main goal to steal the secret recipe, but what is the secret recipe? What is a Krabby Patty made of exactly? Fans on Twitter have been speculating a dark theory for awhile, and it has recently resurfaced.

This theory states that Krabby Patties are actually made out of crab meat, and Mr. Krabs is behind it all. This Twitter user makes an excellent point of what I assume many of us have always wondered.

If Krabby Patties are made from beef like normal burgers, then how did the beef get to the bottom of the ocean? What human is dropping crates of beef in the ocean for a crab and his restaurant? Maybe because Krabby Patties are not made from beef. Maybe this is the exact reason why the secret formula is so protected after almost 20 years. What is Mr. Krabs hiding? This next Twitter user may just have it all figured out.

Mr. Krabs has been the only crab besides his mother shown in almost every episode of SpongeBob Squarepants. So does that mean Mr. Krabs is killing every other crab in Bikini Bottom, cooking them into burgers and selling them at his restaurant? This could be debunked due to the fact that there is one episode where Krabs attends a stingy convention full of other crabs. But if this theory is true, then you may never see those other crabs again.

Don’t be so quick to throw out this theory without seeing this scene from SpongeBob Squarepants, where Mr. Krabs LITERALLY admits that a Krabby Patty is made out of himself… A CRAB.

Also, the Krusty Krab is literally shaped like a crab trap and every food item offered in the series has been named after what they are made of. Kelp fries, kelp shakes, coral bits, etc. I guess we know the secret ingredient in a Krabby Patty after all.

The Krusty Krab vs. The Chum Bucket: Another SpongeBob Meme is Taking Over Twitter

Just when the evil Patrick memes were dying down. Once again, it really shows how influential SpongeBob Squarepants is. I mean, it has been running for 19 years after all.

We all know SpongeBob’s workplace & pretty much the most popular fast food restaurant in Bikini Bottom is the Krusty Krab. A Krabby Patty must be good, because that place stays busy and Mr. Krabs’ wallet stays stuffed. On the contrary, there’s another restaurant across the way known as The Chum Bucket, which is way less popular and is pretty sketchy if you know the real life definition of a “chumbucket”. Of course, the internet just knows how to make things even more interesting. The latest meme is people comparing two real life things using the Krusty Krab and the Chum Bucket, with the Krusty Krab being the most favorable thing and the Chum Bucket being the least favorable. Looks like a meme is going to be the cause of World War III.

Of course with a comparison like this, someone spills some truth tea.

There’s love for both here, by the way. ;)

DoodleBob Returns in Latest SpongeBob Episode ‘Doodle Dimension’ (Review)

This post contains spoilers for those of you who haven’t seen the episode yet. Continue at your own risk.

IMG_2781source: Nickelodeon

It can be really exciting when a show that has been running for so long brings back some of their original material. With the constant nagging debate that the SpongeBob Squarepants series is just not how is used to be or that it “changed for the worst”, it’s really good timing that we get to see a classic character from on of the earlier seasons. And I honestly, from the bottom of my heart, have to disagree with those statements and the people who are against the newer SpongeBob episodes. I respect your opinions 100%, but try to look at it from this perspective. SpongeBob Squarepants has been running for 19 long and successful years, from episode one to now. When a series has been running for as long as SpongeBob, you just can’t expect it to stay the same. Team members such as writers and artists on the set may have come and gone. Things are bound to change and that is totally normal. A part of life actually, so get used to it kiddos.

With all that being said, SpongeBob Squarepants is still doing quite well as a long running series and it has my respect. Especially when it brings back such iconic characters such as the one and only… DoodleBob. We haven’t seen SpongeBob’s evil self portrait that came to life since his debut episode “Frankendoodle” which aired back in 2002. Sixteen years later, DoodleBob is back and causing an even bigger war in the latest SpongeBob episode “Doodle Dimension” that aired last Friday on March 9. Doodle Dimension was a highly anticipated episode because of DoodleBob’s popularity amongst those who have been watching the series since it started. DoodleBob is basically SpongeBob’s poorly drawn evil twin who wants to wreak havoc, and though SpongeBob defeated him last time, of course Patrick would be the one to draw him yet again when they enter themselves through a strange, blank dimension where you have to doodle the world around you, using a portal that Sandy built.

IMG_2785source: Nickelodeon

Now I would say “Really? Haven’t they learned from the last time?” but this is SpongeBob and Patrick we’re dealing with. I can’t help but feel as if they had totally forgotten about DoodleBob, on account of them calling him cute and wanting a hug from him when he was drawn again. I guess all of the antics that SpongeBob and Patrick go through on a day to day basis is just too much to keep up with. So of course chaos ensues and DoodleBob definitely wants revenge for his defeat the last time, but this time he has an army of mini DoodleBobs to back him up. Patrick even ends up getting tied up & taken into the doodled castle of DoodleBob. Thus, the battle to defeat the evil doodle part two really begun. Like I stated before, I don’t agree with those individuals who are saying that the series “changed for the worst”, but I can admit that the episode plots are getting even more outrageous, and this isn’t even necessarily a bad thing.

I’m going to give this episode a fair rating of 4.5/5. I appreciate the writers bringing back a classic character because it shows me that the team behind the series obviously hasn’t forgot about their roots. I mean even though DoodleBob is a villain to SpongeBob and Patrick, you got to admit that his characteristics are funny. On the other hand, I’m a not a huge fan of the direction they took with the episode. Yes, it was expected of Patrick to do something silly and idiotic like draw their enemy who who wrecked havoc. But it was strange of the two not to remember DoodleBob at first and coddling him, as if he totally didn’t try to kill them in the past. I’ll just disregard it as an honest hiccup for now. I also wish they would have gone in the direction of making this episode a special, that maybe could’ve have been an hour long. I hate that the episode was only eleven minutes long because I was really into it, and it felt like it was over before it even started. Sorry if I come off as an ungrateful savage, but when you’re bringing back the epic battle of DoodleBob, you have got to come a bit stronger. But I’m definitely not complaining about SpongeBob with a doodled knight costume on.

“Our SlimeZone partnership with IMAX lets kids and families interact with Nickelodeon properties and characters by bringing them to life in new and innovative ways,” said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group. “This new VR experience will also show the creative community how we are using technology to create unique forms of entertainment for all ages.”

Nickelodeon first debuted SlimeZone at VidCon US 2017, an annual multi-genre online video conference.  SlimeZone was built using Epic’s Unreal Engine and Nvidia FleX particle system for slime simulation.

Launched in 2017, the Nickelodeon Entertainment Lab focuses on long-range research and development of emerging technologies. The Lab experiments with VR, mixed-reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence to provide Nickelodeon artists and creators with innovative tools that inspire new ways to tell stories for the next generation of kids.

The Patrick Star Meme, Known as ‘Evil Patrick’ Is Taking Twitter by Storm

Another month, another meme. SpongeBob & Patrick have been the center of a few viral memes in the past, but it looks like Patrick is once again the latest victim. Curse you SpongeBob, for being such a influential, long-running show that anyone of any age knows of. That has been the case for many cartoons that have been turned into a meme by everyone’s favorite generation, millennials. This time, the internet is sharing the time that they’ve did something immoral or devious, using the ‘Evil Patrick’ (also known as Savage Patrick) reaction pic.

evil patrick

So what is the origin of this meme? Well the photo is a screen capture from SpongeBob Squarepants season 1 episode 9a “Nature Pants”, that aired on September 11, 1999. SpongeBob gives up his everyday life to become a jellyfish and live freely in the wild, aka jellyfish fields. This doesn’t sit right with his companions Mr. Krabs, Sandy and especially Patrick, who goes into an emotional fit of rage and tries to catch SpongeBob in his jellyfish net after other attempts to get him to come back to his normal Bikini Bottom life.

Of course the internet knows how to turn one second of a cartoon character’s face into a reaction, and I got to admit that it’s brilliant at times.

https://twitter.com/LIBGyal/status/969042918676844544

And these are the most innocent tweets I’ve seen so far. Of course there are some far too explicit ones out there that I decided was best for you all to discover yourselves. Oh but, prepare to have your childhood ruined yet again.

Once Again, Nickelodeon Confirms SpongeBob Squarepants Is Not Ending

spongebob-squarepants-sky-kids-tile-b6dcbe76source: Nickelodeon

Well this definitely isn’t just Deja Vu, because we have been here before. You might’ve recalled me debunking the same rumor back in 2016. “SpongeBob Squarepants is ending on (insert date here)!!!” followed by a couple of crying emojis.  Let me break it down for you kiddos.

In May 2017, the SpongeBob Squarepants series was announced to be renewed for a 12th season. On April 30, 2015, Viacom announces a third SpongeBob Squarepants movie that will be released on July 31, 2020. SpongeBob Squarepants ending on March 1, 2018? NO WAY. This is a good time to remind everything that it’s always smart to check your facts and pay attention to the news before spreading false information and adding on to the fuel.

Still not convinced? Well the official Instagram page of SpongeBob posted this, and Nickelodeon liked it.

There you go folks! Season 12 is coming your way in 2019. Let’s bury the rumors okay?
