    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Really? Really? Let's do this. The plot: Mr. Krabs discovers that for some strange reason, magnetic objects are attracted to Gary's stomach. Being the cheapskate he is, he exploits this by distracting SpongeBob with manual labor while he goes around using Gary to steal people's money while also abusing him by treating him like a sled dog. And that's the episode. That's all there is, except for the ending.

    This was one of those episodes where I instantly hated it. Ignoring the fact that coins aren't attracted to magnets, this whole episode makes Krabs look like an unlikable jerk. There's a fine line between being greedy and cruel, something that this episode doesn't understand. There isn't time for jokes either, so there isn't even much comedy aside from SpongeBob's mediocre segments. Krabs is just EVIL in this episode. Krabs in his best appearances, while always greedy, would never stoop this low. He can't even be bothered to remember Gary's name. The ONLY redeeming factor is the ending, which was really satisfying, but I don't even know if Krabs learned a lesson or not. Just, this is a terrible portrayal of Krabs. 4/10, a BAD episode.

    A Gary Torture Porn with Mr. Krabs and his assholiness can be so bad, it's unrealistic. Like... oh my god, poor Gary was being worked like a bull for that selfish shit to get spare change? And Spongebob, grow a fucking backbone and quit!

    I like this episode. From the title, I guessed it was a money themed episode with Mr Krabs. My expectations for these types of episodes was lowered so much by "Penny Foolish"(An awful episode) that I was surprised by it's strong premise and decent gags. I understand that Mr Krabs abusing Gary wasn't that funny but overall I Enjoyed this episode

    The Cent Of Money:



    Plot: Mr. Krabs uses Gary to find spare change, as he has a natural magnetic attraction to coins. Mr. Krabs keeps SpongeBob distracted long enough to get a lot of change. Then SpongeBob finds out whats happening and follows him to the arcade, but he is too late, as Mr. Krabs is already stealing change. He is quickly caught though, and it is revealed that Gary had a magnet inside him that attracted all the change.



    Review: In this episode Mr.Krabs notices Garys "special talent" to attract spare change to his shell uses him to steal other people's money (Spongebob gives him permission to keep Gary company.) While he keeps Spongebob busy at the Krusty Krab with work tasks. This episode also reveals to us what Mr.Krabs truly is: A money grubbing, animal abuser. To make things worse Mr.Krabs can't even get Garys name right he calls him Jerry, Barry, Terry, Harry, Mory. The only part I enjoyed was the ending, in which Mr.Krabs got his just desserts (He got injured in the arcade from the huge wave of money that was attracted from Gary [Whos "talent" turned out to be an eaten magnet] and all the money previously stolen was enough to cover the hospitial bill.) Do yourself a favor and avoid this episode at all cost.



    Final Grade:
