Wet Painters is a episode from the third season of SpongeBob SquarePants.


SpongeBob and Patrick are causing chaos at the Krusty Krab, so Mr. Krabs decides to give them a task. He tells them to paint the living room of his house, but warns them the paint is permanent. After successfully painting the room, they accidentally get paint all over Mr. Krabs' first earned dollar and must hide up the evidence before Mr. Krabs returns home, otherwise he will turn them into effigies for delights in the fireplace.

Why It's Pure White

  1. The plot is simple, yet it still manages to be fun thanks to the humor.
  2. Tons of funny moments, like when SpongeBob begins to scream when they ruined Mr. Krabs' first dollar, or when Patrick blows two giant paint bubbles.
  3. "Can you move it along? I'm all out of time cards."
  4. Memorable quotes, such as "We have technology."
  5. A decent plot twist although the ending is predictable, which is revealed that Mr. Krabs lied about the paint being permanent and that he tricked them just for fun.

Bad Qualities

  1. Mr. Krabs is somewhat unlikable due to how much pressure he put SpongeBob and Patrick through by threatening to "cut their rear ends off and mount them over his fireplace", only for him to tell them the paint came off with saliva.
    • Though he kinda gets a comeuppance when he laughs so hard he spits all over the place, thus causing the paint of his house to slide off the walls.
  2. Predictable ending. It turns out that the paint is not permanent, granted that Mr. Krabs uses his saliva to laugh all over his living room.
    • Also, if the paint is removable by saliva, seeing Mr. Krabs lick off the paint seems very dangerous if the paint was made of lead, which could poison, inflict stomach ache and muscle weakness, and worse, damage the brain. However, the paint could have hopefully been made of latex or tempera, which doesn't poison the body, but can cause stomach problems like vomiting.
