Missing Identity: SpongeBob has lost his name tag! He has no idea where it has gone. He retraces all of his steps, with "help" from Patrick, but to no avail. His mind and day rapidly deteriorating, he continues to search desperately until, miraculously, Patrick spots the missing identification. SpongeBob has accidentally gone the entire day...with his shirt on backwards. Plankton's Army: It is the 25th anniversary of Plankton's first attempt to steal the Krabby Patty Secret Formula. The entire Krusty Krab crew is on its guard, and foils Plankton at every turn. Plankton, defeated, decides to enlist the help of all of his plankton relatives - all millions of them. They storm the Krusty Krab and take Mr. Krabs by surprise, and finally manage to get the secret formula. But when Plankton gets to the most secret ingredient, he runs screaming, as does his army. The secret ingredient (in this decoy formula that Mr. Krabs set up) was a pound of fresh ground plankton! Written by NAS
