    SpongeBob is in his kitchen, karate-chopping a pineapple to look like Gary. He puts it on the floor so Gary is eye-level with it. It attracts flies and one flies into SpongeBob's mouth and he begins to choke. Patrick walks in and asks for some cheese before realizing SpongeBob's choking. Once it becomes clear to him, he punches SpongeBob. SpongeBob flies across the room and lands against the wall and the fly leaves his mouth. He offers anything in return and gives Patrick the cheese. Patrick decides that he wants to learn Karate. SpongeBob is skeptical but gives in since that was the deal. He tries to teach Patrick the "reverse whirlpool," a move identical to the reverse whirlpool in Squidtastic Voyage, and then to fly into a brick wall and destroy it. Patrick succeeds in this but ends up unable to stop flying. Next, SpongeBob tries to teach Patrick a move where he spins around on one foot. Patrick then starts spinning uncontrollably. SpongeBob gives up, and Patrick perfectly karate-chops a cinder block in half out of anger. He chops a steel sword and a boat as practice and then almost chops Baby Rechid. SpongeBob stops and warns him not to chop any living organisms or their property. He reminds him that "with power comes responsibility," but has to go to work and leaves Patrick, who starts chopping everything from arcade games to spinach. A man runs into the Krusty Krab screaming that there is a "chopper" on the loose, and SpongeBob, knowing the man is referring to Patrick, sets off to stop his friend. Meanwhile, Patrick is in an ice-cream shop. He is buying a cone stacked high with every flavor they have. He owes them over eighty dollars but tries to trade him for a lollipop. The ice cream man refuses and threatens to call the cops when Patrick chops the glass, cracking it, and tips the ice cream into his mouth while the ice cream man holds onto the money from the tip jar. He gains considerable weight, and no longer fits through the door. He chops it, and exits while the manager yells at the ice cream man for holding the money in the tip jar. Spongebob comes and tells Patrick to stop destroying Bikini Bottom, but by that time, Patrick's arm can not stop chopping. He eventually makes his way to the Barg'N-Mart and destroys the structure and crushes Spongebob. He finds a pack of kitchen sponges, and believes that this is SpongeBob's carcass. He becomes very mad at himself and rips off his own hand. The real Spongebob, who was trapped under a pile of rubble, wakes up and Patrick grows his hand back. Patrick badly rebuilds the Barg 'N-Mart. Patrick's hand grows into a new starfish and SpongeBob reprimands it for karate-chopping the rebuilt Barg'N-Mart, which falls down.

    It was a superb episode. The only thing that bugs me is that Sandy was not even in this episode if it has to do with karate. That wasdisappointing. But I did enjoyed the episode despite the lack of Sandy. The plot was interesting that Patrick wanted to do karate. The beginning was funny especially when SpongeBob eventually choked and Patrick saved his life. Patrick doing karate at everywhere (Krusty Krab, chopping Squidward's garden, etc.) were funny. I liked that Patrick wanted to order ice cream. Besides Sandy not appearing it bugs me that SpongeBob and Patrick has to fix the Barg n Mart store. Overall it was asuperbepisode. 9/10moreless
  • Not as good as yesterday's episode "That Sinking Feeling" but it was still superb.

    This week ended on a superb note which is good. I don't understand why Patrick all of a sudden is interested in karate. He's seen SpongeBob and Sandy do karate before. It also kind of got me mad that Sandy didn't appear in this episode. She should have at least appeared in this episode. Anyways, I thought the scenes with SpongeBob training Patrick for karate were funny and when that fish warned SpongeBob not to walk out of the Krusty Krab door and then when Spongebob walks out, the fish says "noooooooo" and when Patrick bought all of the ice cream flavors. The only things I didn't like about this episode was the ending and Sandy not appearing in this episode. Despite that, this was a superb episode and it ended on a very good note. 9/10moreless
  • By far this season's top episode....

    9.0
    Karate Star: In this episode, Spongebob decides to teach Patrick how to do Karate. Personally, I think this episode automatically contends for one of the top episodes of the season. Period. Bring karate to Patrick was fun to watch considering how destructive he got from the beginning to the end of the episode chopping up sunken boats to Flat Screen TV's to the Barg n' Mart. The ending was funny how the Barg n' Mart was put back together, but just ended up crumpling up to pieces and ruins. Spongebob played his role great, and the episode carried out fantastic.

    A+
