Imitation Krabs is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season two. In this episode, Plankton disguises himself as Mr. Krabs.


Plankton builds a robot imitating Mr. Krabs to steal the Krabby Patty formula. However, while infiltrating the Krusty Krab, this proves to be easier said than done.

Why It Rocks

  1. SpongeBob's determination to keep the Krabby Patty recipe safe from Plankton is admirable.
  2. Plankton's voice coming out of his robot disguise of Mr. Krabs is very robot-like.
  3. Tons of hilarious scenes, such as the scene where SpongeBob tries to determine who the real Mr. Krabs is.
    • "Everybody at the head enhancement clinic said nobody would notice!"
    • "Coin operated self-destruct... Not one of my better ideas."
    • "PLANKTON!" "KRABS!" "SpongeBob."k
  4. It spawned the meme "ravioli, ravioli, give me the formuoli"
  5. The episode takes a very funny and creative spin on a rather basic plot.
  6. Its sister episode, "Dying for Pie", was also fantastic.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. The episode was rehashed a total of three times during Season 7: "Shellback Shenanigans", "Gramma's Secret Recipe" and most infamously "Someone's in the Kitchen with Sandy"


This episode is highly-regarded among the fanbase. Along with its sister episode "Dying for Pie", it scored a 9.3/10 on IMDb.
