Fire up the grill for over 2 hours of work-centric tales featuring Bikini Bottom's most dedicated fry cook, SpongeBob SquarePants. But what happens when this loyal worker gets the heave-ho? Find out in the special double-episode, SpongeBob You're Fired! Then enjoy more adventures from the grill when SpongeBob goes to work for Plankton, pulls a spatula from a vat of ancient grease, meets his Krusty Krab predecessor, takes his talents to a snooty French restaurant, challenges Squidward for "Employee of the Month," prepares "sal-ads," cooks up the Krusty Krab's latest culinary offering (which looks like a hot dog but tastes an awful lot like a Krabby Patty!), renews his milkshake-making license and more! You'll even get to relive the moment when SpongeBob came aboard the Krusty Krew, painted Mr. Krabs' living room, starred in the video for all new Krusty Krab employees and delivered the first (and only) Krusty Krab pizza. It's all on the menu for your viewing enjoyment! Written by Anonymous

If this doesn't prove that Spongebob should be canceled, then I don't know what will
16 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

People, this is perhaps a PERFECT example of how lazy the writing is for Spongebob nowadays. Even the concept has been done already. And, just a little nit pick, the title even rips off "Mrs. Puff, You're Fired". Say what you want, it's still ripping off something that has been done already. The first sign of laziness is in the first TWO MINUTES of nothing but padded out filler of Spongebob doing kitchen duties, which adds nothing to the plot. When he's finally done making a krabby patty, Mr. Krabs taps Spongebob on the shoulder telling him that he's fired so Mr. Krabs can save a whole nickel (kind of like in BUMMER VACATION!) Then there are weak visual gags like "You're canned" (Krabs hands Spongebob a can), "Here's your pink slip" (puts a pink dress on Spongebob), and "I'm giving you the ax" (gives him an ax that slices Spongebob in half). Spongebob annoyingly cries until Squidward kicks him out of the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs then says from now on he'll cook the patties and that he was 5 time golden spatula in the Navy (again, wrong. He was a Navy Brawler and the head chef on the S.S. Diarrhea). Spongebob then goes home, feeds Gary, and cries about losing his job. Patrick pops up and is also crying because Spongebob is also crying. Patrick then enters the Pineapple through a window (unfunny) and Spongebob tries to tell him about getting fired for a minute with lame jokes with Patrick guessing what Spongebob got, "f-f-f- f---- free ice cream?!" (lame). Patrick then tells Spongebob that it's great that he got fired (great thing to tell the kids guys) and the next day he'll show Spongebob the wonders of unemployment. The next day, Patrick goes to the Pineapple and sees Spongebob in a mess holding a "Best Day Ever" mug. They then get breakfast by having Squidward throwing his fresh veggies at them. Then they try to take a nap on Patrick's rock and it is such a slow process. Spongebob puts Gary's slime on himself and fails to cling to the rock. Then he's just heavily breathing (to pad the episode more, seriously, these idiots couldn't properly fill 22 minutes to save their lives). Nothing of importance happens. The two then go to get some lunch at Sandy's, who just so happens to be giving away free, um, glop. A fish eats the glop and his head inflates (done before and unfunny), Patrick grows a second head, and Sandy prevents Spongebob from eating the glop, which is now suddenly revealed as some radioactive glop. Shouldn't Plankton be doing that instead of Sandy? Oh well, Sandy tells Spongebob he's falling apart and his brain falls out with his eyes still attached (eeeewwww!!!!) and tells Spongebob he needs a new job. Spongebob then sucks in his beard, and shouts, "I'm ready!" He sings that along (which hasn't happened since the movie) until he reaches a place called "Weenie Hut" (must be the father of Weenie Hut Jr.'s). The boss is Mr. Weenie, who is dressed in a hot dog costume, hires Spongebob who then rips off "Le Big Switch" but instead of everything he makes becomes Krabby Patties, he turns the hot dogs into sliders. Mr. Weenie doesn't like them, throws them on the floor, and fires Spongebob. Spongebob then goes to a pizza joint, taco joint, and noodle joint with the same results, HE'S JUST PUTTING BUNS ON THEM! When Spongebob was trying to make, for instance, stew and somehow gets a krabby patty, that's funny. Just throwing buns on other foods is very lazy and very uncreative. Oh yeah, and also unfunny. So Spongebob goes home and makes Gary some amazing snail food (though this doesn't explain why he couldn't do the other foods) and somehow Patrick also has some snail food, which he also approves of. The doorbell suddenly rings, Spongebob walks outside and is kidnapped by, oh God, weenie people (I'm really losing brain cells here people). Mr. Weenie tells Spongebob his costumers loved the sliders. You know, the ones that were thrown on the filthy ground! Then the pizza guy breaks Spongebob out, then the noodle guy nabs him, then the taco guy, you know how this ends up. Then out of nowhere comes The Killer Patty, that the four bosses know about somehow. The Killer Patty beats three of them up, Mr. Weenie gets hit by a bus (ripping off "Final Destination" now) and the Killer Patty takes Spongebob back to the Krusty Krab which is, big shock, in a mess. Also, hasn't Krabs learned that 99% of when they don't have Spongebob everything's a mess? The only time was when Patrick was the fry cook in "Bummer Vacation". The Killer Patty is revealed to be Squidward (somehow) and Squidward and Krabs tell Spongebob they need him back, which Spongebob says yes to. Quite frankly, Spongebob should have said no and make a career of making delicious snail food. There are no words to describe how awful this "special" was, I do not recommend it to anyone, with or without a functioning brain.
