  • Episode Description
  • In the battle for fast food supremacy, Plankton has decided to throw in the towel and start a new business selling trinkets and souvenir gifts. He even renames his store from The Chum Bucket to The Chumporium. But Mr. Krabs doesn't buy the change for a second. He's determined to prove that this is nothing more than one of Plankton's elaborate schemes aimed at stealing the Krabby Patty formula.

  • Coming from an old school Spongebob fan, this episode kicked some serious ass.

  • Hmmm... SpongeBob only appeared in this episode for the first 4 minutes BUT a plot that mostly focused on Mr. Krabs and Plankton was a pretty good idea.

    • Plankton: I should have been a politician.

    • Mr. Krabs: But what about all those fevered attempts at trying to steal my Krabby Patty recipe? Plankton: Exactly! They've all been just attempts. And every single one a miserable failure. I can feel my arteries clogging up with anxiety just thinking about it. (sighs) Let me show you something. (scene cuts to them walking into the Chum Bucket, which is full of spider webs) Look at this place!

    • Plankton: (waving a white flag) I surrender! Mr. Krabs: Eh? I wonder what form of trickery is up that miniature Cyclops's sleeve this time. (walks up to Plankton) Alright, Plankton, I don't know what you're trying to pull on me, but I'll tell ya right now, it ain't going to work. Plankton: There's no pulling, Krabs. Can't you see my peace offering?

    • Plankton: Don't you see, Krabs, I'm done competing with you!

    • Mr. Krabs: Hit it, SpongeBob!

    Trivia (10)

    • [Goof]: Mr. Krabs destroys ALL OR MOST of Plankton's store in a fit of rage, BUT why wasn't he in trouble with the law for vandalism?

    • In "New Leaf," how did Mr. Krabs get Plankton's robotic Mr. Krabs suit from "Imitation Krabs" if it self-destructed in that episode?

    • After Plankton releases the banner, which says Chumporium, SpongeBob shows Mr. Krabs the snow globe that he got at the store. How did he get it that fast if the Chumporium just opened?

    • Mr. Krabs: Nice try Plankton, but it's going to take more then taking a stab at my illiteracy to offend me. How could Mr. Krabs be illiterate if in numerous episodes we see him reading, or doing a crossword puzzle?

    • When Plankton was polishing one of the snow globes and Mr. Krabs interrupts him, the rag mysteriously disappears. It was visible in the first shot, but when the camera changed to Mr. Krabs, then back to Plankton the rag is gone.
