Episode Summary


After failing again to steal the krabby patty secret formula, Plankton gets a pet to cheer himself up.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Awwww!

    This episode was so adorable, just like my cat. I liked the beginning, when Plankton was disguised as a baby and how Mr. Krabs got beat up. I also found it funny when Plankton was at the animal shelter and said, "Too stupid," when he walked pass by Patrick, who was in a cage. (Silly This episode had me squealing with delight because Spot was so adorable and I think that it is nice to see Plankton's soft spot, like we did in "One Coarse Meal," except in this episode Plankton was not tortured. I think it is nice to see Plankton not obsess over the formula for once and focus on an animal that is so sweet and adorable. I must give this a 10/10!moreless

    This episode was very heartwarming. Plankton and Spot are great together, too bad Spot probably will never appear again.
  • A great, quality episode

    I love this episode. The first scene with the baby is entertaining to know what's going on and to see the reactions of the people who don't. Especially the ladies outside of the Krusty Krab - that got a chuckle out of me. Not to mention Spot is adorable and it's wonderful to see a softer side of such a one-dimensional character. I also love Plankton's line, "HOLY PLOT TWIST!!" Meta jokes like that always amuse me. The ending felt a little rushed and somewhat random, but the great quality of the other portions of the episode more than makes up for it.moreless
  • Another modern Spongebob episode that's actually good?

    What do you know, it looks like that the writers made most characters less mean spirited this time and simply revolved around Plankton getting a pet. For once, Plankton is actually happy and wins in the end, without the Krabby patty Formula. In fact I was glad to see that Plankton got a friend that he could connect with, even if it was just a pet.
  • Great episode right here

    I can really say that I enjoyed this episode quite a bit. It was actually very nice to see Plankton happy here and finally not chase that formula too much. One thing I'm excited about is that in the end of the episode, Spot didn't go away so that makes me wonder if he'll be in future episodes and I hope he is. The episode was funny and I was hooked all throughout the episode. One of my faves for this season for sure :Dmoreless
