Welcome to the Chum Bucket: Mr. Krabs loses SpongeBob's fry cook contract in a bet with Plankton and SpongeBob is forced to go work at the Chum Bucket. While there, SpongeBob is so homesick that he can't even fry up a single patty. At a loss, Plankton tries to comfort SpongeBob by showering him with gifts and attention. So much so, that SpongeBob soon acts like a spoiled teenager. Plankton tries to throw him out but SpongeBob says he doesn't feel like it. Plankton ends up having to pay Mr. Krabs to take SpongeBob off his hands again. Frankendoodle: When SpongeBob and Patrick discover a pencil from the surface they begin to draw with it. Everything the draw, comes to life! Soon, they begin to do small, lame pranks on the neighbors, the last of which is a crude, rough sketch of SpongeBob they call "SpongeDoodle". SpongeDoodle quickly escapes and starts pranking all of SpongeBob's friends and SpongeBob is getting blamed for it. Then, he starts to prank SpongeBob and Patrick, too. ... Written by NAS
