Episode Summary


Plankton's sabotages SpongeBob by breaking his spatula so he can give SpongeBob a new spatula and communicate through it to find out the krabby patty secret formula.

  • The writers way of saying We're Sorry for All that Glitters

    Looks like our terrible duo known as Zeus Cervas and Casey Alexander have managed to create a gem. While this is another cliched steal the Krabby patty formula plot. It actually take everything All that Glitters did, and did it the right way. For example, Plankton sabotages Spongebob's spatula, so we have a reason why it breaks rather than a giant krabby patty. Also, Spongebob doesn't cry for minutes which is a huge improvement from All that Glitters. Also, he seems to get along with the new Spatula quite well, and it really helps him with his job so Plankton gains Spongebob's trust. Then the way they defeat plankton is kinda funny. So yeah, writers you do have a way to redeem a bad episode, so if you make a bad episode, please try to fix it because this episode seems to be an apology for All That Glitters.moreless
  • It's ok.

    One of the new episodes that aren't disturbing or creepy. It's like All that glitters except no annoying crying and instead of finding a new one, Plankton gives him this evil one. This is alright, But it copied All that glitters a little.
  • A quality episode

    The dialogue between "The Sizzlemaster" and Spongebob were very creative, and the way Plankton handled it was very reminiscent of the old seasons when Plankton would always be inside something and it going horribly wrong for him. I also felt, for once, Spongebob's innocence was charming and not annoying. FINALLY! I'm so happy to see an episode where all the characters have their personalities back in place again.
  • At least SpongeBob didn't cry

    I thought this was a very good episode and I enjoyed watching it. This was actually a good plan for Plankton but obviously, it still didn't work. Even though this episode was nice and fun to watch, there has been better for season 9 but again, I still really like this one a lot.
  • A fixed version of All That Glitters

    When I first saw this promo before it aired, I was thinking "why would they use the same plot from the horrible episode "All That Glitters?" But what I saw instead was something good. For example I remember the episode "Best Frenemies" which marked one of the first times in the show that Mr Krabs and Plankton team up, and I remember how similar it felt compared to "The Other Patty" episode. I thought the Other Patty was an awful episode, it was a rip off of Best Frenemies, except it was a dull episode. But comparing "All That Glitters" to "Evil Spatula" I can say "Evil Spatula" was an episode worth recycling, and fixing a previous plot from. I love how Spongebob only briefly screamed when his spatula broke, unlike "All That Glitters" where he crys for about one minute. I also liked how his spatula wasn't a character, like it was oddly portrayed in "All That I also liked Plankton's role in this episode. Plankton making a replacement spatula for Spongebob, with a microphone, and spy gadgets was a pretty sneaky move from Plankton, but of course, his plans on the show never work out.moreless
