    Trivia (31)

    • SpongeBob tapes a picture of DoodleBob to the wall. But the picture is no longer seen in other episodes.

    • 'Play THQ' recently made a video game called Drawn To Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition based on "Frankendoodle" where DoodleBob is the main villain.

    • While Patrick is complaining about how sick the doodle makes him, if you notice, SpongeBob's buck teeth disappear and do not reappear until Patrick says that the doodle has buck teeth.

    • In the episode "Frankendoodle," the man shown drawing on the boat is Mr. Lawrence, the voice of Plankton.

    • You can clearly see a long string connected to the artist's boat at 'Frankendoodle'.

    • SpongeBob Robot: *Beep Beep* Respond: Why don't you ask me later? Plankton taking SpongeBob's brain out and putting it into a robot replica is similar to The Simpsons' "Treehouse of Horror II" when Mr. Burns takes out Homer's brain, and afterwards does no work and just lays around.

    • The bottle cap by Plankton is the color of a Pepsi bottle cap.

    • The crawling Krabby Patty at the Chum Bucket looks very similar to the Monster Hand/Jack-in-the-Box kept in Sid's room on the movie, Toy Story.

    • DoodleBob: You Doodle, me SpongeBob. This is a spoof of Tarzan.

    • When Patrick is hit by the bowling and turns into a group of bowling pins, this might be a reference to a Tom&Jerry cartoon when Jerry's tough cousin tosses a bowling ball at Tom and Tom turns into bowling pins.
