  • Bossy Boots by The Capsules


At the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs is holding a meeting. He says that Pearl has lots of new ideas to help improve profits, and is therefore going to work in the Krusty Krab during her summer vacation. Squidward does not like being told what to do by a teenager, and teams up with SpongeBob to protect their jobs. SpongeBob would rather prefer new spatulas, but tolerates Pearl's strange ideas. She want the employees new pink floral uniforms. She also changes the name to the 'Kuddly Krab', and changes the whole place into a teen hangout (it looks more like a childcare center though). SpongeBob is told to make a salad, but he has never heard of it and pronounces it wrong. He then makes a Krabby Patty and shows it to Pearl. She tells him to take off the buns and the patty, leaving only tomatoes and lettuce. The menu's changed, and there's only two things: salad and tea. Mr. Krabs tells SpongeBob that the new ideas are actually causing a loss, and Pearl has to be fired. He does not want to do it, so he asks SpongeBob to fire her. ("It's OK if she hates you!") When SpongeBob calls Pearl in the kitchen and is on the brink of firing her, Pearl tells him that she actually wanted to be fired, and she gets fired. However, Mr. Krabs does not know how to get the spent money back. SpongeBob finds a solution to this problem by buying everything in the Krusty Krab (it cost him one year's salary.)


  • This episode was originally called "Working Pearl".
  • When SpongeBob had a piece of paper, it had the workers, with mustaches, on one side. When he turned around, there is nothing on either side of the paper.
  • The alternative names Pearl and SpongeBob come up for the Krusty Krab are:
    • The Kooky Krab
    • The Kutie Krab
    • The Khaotic Krab,
    • The Kissy Krab
    • The King Krab
    • The Kandy Krab
    • The Kool Krab
    • The Kowboy Krab
    • The Kurly Krab
    • The Kreepy Krab
    • The Killer Krab
    • The Kuddly Krab.
  • Kuddly Krab Menu: Salad and Tea
  • SpongeBob's sleeves are gone when a shot of the menu is shown.
  • In one of the final shots, SpongeBob's house is shown, but Squidward's house is nowhere to be seen.
  • Pearl rang a bell to SpongeBob saying, "SpongeBob, order up!", but the captions are missing his name: 1. ( ''bell rings'' ), 2. Order up!
  • When Fred says, "Hey, lady, you know where we can get something to eat?" his voice sounds completely different from other episodes.
  • Mr. Krabs' "five easy payments of only $9.95" line is missing a period at the end of the sentence in closed captions.
  • When this episode was shown on DVD, the closed caption mistakes and changes were still there, except that those captions were in lowercase, similar to Something Smells and season 1 SpongeBob SquarePants episodes.
  • The Kuddly Krab Patty is very unappetizing.
  • The fish that passed by in the car when SpongeBob was in the krab suit,when the fish laughed, the laugh sounded similar to Fred's laugh from the episode Squirrel Jokes.
