Ghoul Fools is an episode from Season 8.
- The Ghouls of the Briny Deep
SpongeBob and Patrick are laying on the ground watching the clouds until they see a haunted house boat. Patrick wants to check it out so the buddies do. Patrick thinks the boat is lame, but SpongeBob thinks its real. Then they meet Lord Poltergeist who sings a sea shanty by Patrick's request. SpongeBob asks why Lord Poltergeist is in Bikini Bottom and it is because ther's a broken headgasket. Lord Poltergeist takes their souls but gives SpongeBob a dubloon to buy a new headgasket in 24 hours. SpongeBob and Patrick run to the Krusty Krab and tell the customers about the ghosts. The customers run away and Mr. Krabs wants to know what's with the chaos. SpongeBob tells him about Lord Poltergeist and how he stole their souls but gave them a dubloon. Mr. Krabs takes the dubloon and takes a headgasket from a car. Sandy then appears with ghost equipment and wants to catch some Milkshake Gremlins. The five go back to the boat where Mr. Krabs steal the dubloons and hands bags to Squidward and Patrick. Lord Poltergeist appears and SpongeBob givess him the headgasket. The lord gives SpongeBob and Patrick orange soda instead of their souls and sucks Mr. Krabs, Squidward and Patrick into the void and shows them their greatest fears. Sandy sucks the three back into her equipment. Then Mr. Krabs and Lord Poltergeist fight for the dubloons. SpongeBob catches it and realizes it belongs to the Flying Dutchman. The Flying Dutchman comes by immediately to reclaim his dubloons & begins firing broadsides at them. Lord Poltergeist runs away until the boat breaks down. Finally the Flying Dutchman turns into a torpedo that falls onto the Haunted Houseboat and explodes, cursing them all and sending them to the Void. The episode finishes with the Krusty Krab in the Void with new customers, the Skeletons (who pay with bones, which Squidward comments about), and two new employees: the Eternally Tortured Donut (Who was eaten before charging a skeleton Cyclops $2.00 for eating him) and the Giant Demonic Spongebob from Squidward's "vision of eternal torment", who flips the entire Krusty Krab (now called the Kursed Krab) and morphs with the Flying Dutchman, laughing.
