Wet Painters: SpongeBob and Patrick are wreaking havoc on the Krusty Krab, so Mr. Krabs decides to give them a little busy work. He tells them to paint his living room, and gives them permanent paint. Very permanent. So permanent that he threatens to hang their butts over his mantle if they get it on anything. They manage to paint the entire room, covered in knick-knacks, without a drop anywhere...until they see a tiny, microscopic speck on Mr. Krabs' framed and prized first dollar! Their efforts to remove the paint only wreck precious dollar all the more. When Mr. Krabs comes home and finds it, he laughs; telling them the paint comes off with saliva. He licks the dollar and it's good as new. He laughs so hard at their fear of his wrath that he spits all over the room, and the paint drips off of all the walls.

Did You Know?


On the seemingly positive graph of the Krusty Krab's financial performance, the profit axis is inverted, meaning the restaurant is actually losing money. See more »


Mr. Krabs keeps his first dollar on a wall in his house in "Wet Painters" (which is vitally important to the plot). However, in the episode "My Pretty Seahorse" (produced earlier but aired later), Krabs claims he spent his first dollar on a soda. See more »

Best Episodes Ever!!!
6 April 2006 | by (Aurora, CO) – See all my reviews

This is my personal favorite episode of Spongebob Squarepants ever! Both mini-episodes are wonderful and ones that I watch whenever they are on TV no matter what I'm doing.

The "Wet Pinters" episode is wonderful. Spongebob and Patrick are asked by Mr. Krabs to paint his home. Spongebob and Patrick do a seemingly perfect job until they discover they have put a splotch of paint on Mr. Krabs' first dollar (one of many first pieces of currency Mr Krabs has). The hilarity ensues when these two Mensa members try to remove the paint only to make it worse.

The next mini-episode is the Krusty Krab Training Video. After working a lot of retail I enjoyed this one the most and it my favorite of all time. Basically the video is the narrator talking about everything needed to work at the Krusty Krab except for one important thing: how to make the Krabby Patty. Scene after scene and image after image the hilarity just gets bigger and bigger with Spongebob being over excited, Squidward being under excited, Mr. Krabs being a money-grubbing twit, and Patrick being his perpetual dense self. The best part is the motto of the Krusty Krab employee: P.O.O.P., which stand for "People Order Our Patties." Wonderful stuff!

These two episodes are reason enough to purchase the Season 3 Box Set. Enjoy!
