Before we begin, there is 3 different versions of the story, one by Mr. Krabs, one by Plankton and one by Karen. This is one of the stories...

Patchy SegmentsEdit

Patchy The Pirate and Potty the Parrot are back and they are going to be part of the restaurant: The Poop Deck! However, Potty is dissatisfied with all of Patchy's burger dishes, Patchy gets a tantrum, and then they don’t be friends anymore. But then, Patchy realizes that he doesn't like his own recipes either. Later, Patchy discovers that Potty is the Assistant Manager, And now the restaurant is running out of doggy bags (because the people don't like the food). Later, Patchy throws Patties at Potty Because he says that SpongeBob made a perfect patty on the first try while Patchy made a terrible patty. One of them hits Mr. Pirateson the owner of the restaurant. At the end of the episode Patchy claims that he took time off, but Potty says that he and Patchy got fired but Potty got a Golden Parachute. Patchy says they can’t replace him, but Potty tells him that they already did. When he finds out he got replaced by a Gorilla, he says "WHAT?! They let a Smelly Hairy Fleabag like that serve food!?" And the Gorilla then throws Patties at Patchy at the ending of the episode.

Undersea StoryEdit

When Mr. Krabs' story starts, it shows Plankton and Eugene being good friends and such. At school the kids there teased at them (I think the kids that teased at Plankton and Mr. Krabs learned their lesson that bullying is wrong). One day all the kids are at Stinky Burgers eating burgers. They always go down there for lunch. But one day it runs out of business because of food poisoning and shuts down. Both Mr. Krabs and Plankton decide to work there and make their recipe together. The next day, the customers come back and try the new burgers but they spit them out and chuck them in the bin. The two friends keep on trying, but the same thing happens. Eventually, they make best burger after Plankton slams the door while leaving after fighting with Mr. Krabs and the ingredients fall from a shelf into the pot with the "formula". This burger is later to be called the Krabby Patty. They fight over the formula, but because Plankton is so small, Mr. Krabs overpowers him, claims the formula, and later makes the Krusty Krab as a little miniature form of the restaurant that he could carry at school. (The formula is the thing that made Mr. Krabs and Plankton sworn enemies). Plankton then tells his side of the story. Plankton's computer wife bursts in and tells what really happened, as she was a security camera which recorded the fight. Plankton then steals the formula while nobody is paying attention and jumps on Karen, who is wheeling around in circles while Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob chase them.


  • In 1 scene, SpongeBob revealed he made his first Krabby Patty when he was just a little baby.
  • Mr. Krabs and Plankton were bullied when they were kids.
  • When Plankton and Mr. Krabs were children and friends, Mr. Krabs sold Krabby Patties for $1.
  • Mr. Krabs and Plankton used to go to a nursery home.
  • In this episode, Plankton and Mr. Krabs made the recipe for the Krabby Patty formula, but in episode Enemy In-Law, it stated that the formula is an old Krabs family recipe.
  • The original Krabby Patty recipe contained a pinch of chum. This is likely the origin of Plankton's Chum Burger and the name Chum Bucket.
  • In the flashback, the Bikini Bottom Weekly headline reads: "Plab Patty" KO's Old Man Jenkins. "Plab" is a combination of Plankton and Krab.
  • If Old Man Jenkins is old now, how can he be old when Mr. Krabs and Plankton were kids?
  • Plankton somehow has the same voice since birth to adult.
  • For some reason, in this episode, younger Mr. Krabs wears rags for clothes, but in The Krusty Krab Training Video young Mr. Krabs is wearing a miniature sailor suit. (He were younger. In The Krusty Krab Training Video he was a teen, but in this episode, he was in elementary school.
