SpongeBob Meets the Strangler: SpongeBob catches someone littering and turns him in to the police - but it's the Tattletale Strangler! The Strangler escapes custody and disguises himself as SpongeBob's bodyguard, all the while looking for a moment to strangle him. But SpongeBob leads a busy life, and the strangler grows weary. After finally revealing his true identity to SpongeBob, a random chain of events lands him in jail, and SpongeBob is safe. Pranks a Lot: SpongeBob and Patrick invest in some magic "invisible spray" at the local prank shop. They strip down and spray themselves - the stuff really works! They go on a major pranking spree, hitting just about everyone in town and getting away with it. It's finally Mr. Krabs that figures them out and he puts a floodlight on them for the whole town to see. Suddenly the joke is on Patrick and SpongeBob-they have no clothes on! Written by NAS
