Fungus Among Us is an episode from Season 5.





Gary is hungry and his food bowl is empty. He wakes up SpongeBob for his breakfast, and SpongeBob gives him "Organic Healthy Snail Food", but Gary blows a raspberry and complains to SpongeBob about it. Soon, he finds a thing called The Ick and takes a bite. SpongeBob is angry with Gary when he realizes Gary is a picky eater and shoos Gary away from the ick. Soon, Patrick comes to SpongeBob and tries to help him get the ick off. Soon, SpongeBob cannot wash off the ick. SpongeBob goes to the Krusty Krab and tries to hide the Ick in his cap. Soon, it goes on his nose, then his arms, then his entire body. Squidward is terrified of SpongeBob's ick, and he calls the S.W.A.T. Team, where they arrive immediately and take him home. SpongeBob wipes off his head which drops a spark of green ick on Squidward.

When Squidward touches Old Man Jenkins' hand at the register for the change, Old Man Jenkins gets the green ick on his nose. Soon, Squidward is panicked about the green ick on his nose. Back at home, SpongeBob wakes up where the SWAT team has placed him in a bubble to help get the green ick off and Gary is trapped in a bubble too. Patrick comes over and SpongeBob tells him to be careful but Patrick asks to play a game of "Pirate Wrestling",SpongeBob agrees but it destroys his bubble. Back at the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs is worried that SpongeBob is not flipping the Krabby Patties, and Squidward is driven to the kitchen. Squidward spreads the green ick to the Krabby Patties and French fries. After Squidward gives the customers the ick-contaminated food, the fish get a green ick on their skin.

Back at the pineapple, Patrick pops SpongeBob's bubble but blows him back a new bubble, which makes SpongeBob think that he can go back to work at the Krusty Krab. All the fish are angry when the green ick infects them and blames Krabs. Mr. Krabs blames Squidward, then Squidward blames SpongeBob, and everybody tries to destroy SpongeBob's bubble. Gary manages to get to the Krusty Krab by the garbage but not before the entire bubble explodes and everybody is now covered in green ick infecting their skin. Soon, Gary eats all the green ick away! Mr. Krabs makes a $5.00 plus Krabby Patties charge to get the green ick eaten away. SpongeBob's green ick is now gone and everybody has their green ick away making the Krusty Krab back to normal.


  • The green form is similar to the KelpShake reaction in Best Frenemies (later season).
  • The scientist from this episode has the same voice actor as Dr. Gill Gilliam.
  • This episode was labeled as Drake & Josh on TV guides when it aired. Nickelodeon did not announce this episode's premiere either.
  • When Mr.Krabs took the money from people when they still had the ick. Mr. Krabs should have gotten the ick via the money, but didn't.
  • The title card music is a higher pitched version of the Hocus Pocus title card music, and a double high pitched version of the The Pink Purloiner title card music.
