[edit] Plot

The episode's opening moments consist of a cheerful, Disney-esque 1930's-style cartoon seemingly titled Hamdonia Hooray, featuring a location called "Hamdonia." Its joyful citizens are having an all-smiles parade until a rampaging mouth-like figure comes upon the town and starts eating them. The king decides to make a sacrifice in order to satisfy the hungry beast, choosing an innocent frankfurter as their subject. As the hot dog is locked up and prepared to die, it is shown that the cartoon is really just being a puppetry performance by Patrick held for a couple of prisoners.

Suddenly, the house begins shaking. The family evacuates in time, except for GrandPat. Suddenly, the house sprouts chicken legs and runs off, clucking. Squidina encourages the family to track it down by using Patrick's studio (the TV attached to the house) as a vehicle. As the house runs downtown, GrandPat tries to continue his normal morning routine. Squidina starts catching up to the house, but after driving through an electronics store, they lose track of it. Tinkle smells it up ahead and guides them into the forest. Suddenly, they are interrupted by Perch Perkins and a group of cyclists biking by. The cyclists get eaten by the house and drive through it, startling GrandPat.

Patrick gets atop the studio vehicle, and Bunny uses him as a boomerang to wrap around the house with a rope. She tells Squidina to hit the brakes and stop the house. It does, and he ties the house to the vehicle. However, the house takes off and sends the studio spinning away. They see the house run to the top of a building. Patrick takes the lead and drives through it, riding the elevator up to the top floor.

At the top of the building, they see the house resting in a nest as a toaster oven mates with it. Bunny realizes that the house does it every year. The house lays a metal egg, revealing a mini house that resembles a fusion of its parents. GrandPat reveals himself inside the oven, resting in a cup of coffee. He's happy to have his own place and the baby house flies off into the sun, keeping GrandPat in it.

To get the house back home, Squidina gets the idea to lay coffee beans along the road and lead it back. The house burrows back into its original spot, and the family revert their studio back. Patrick hugs the house in relief. Suddenly, a black car drives up, and the residents of Hamdonia get out. They identify Patrick as the mouth that destroyed their land, and chase Patrick around the house. GrandPat flies into the screen, cheering and riding in the baby house, and a "The End" card styled like the Hamdonia cartoon ends the episode.

[edit] Trivia/Goofs

  • The opening segment is animated in a 4:3 aspect ratio. This is the first time this ratio has been used in The Patrick Star Show.
    • This episode is also the first episode in the franchise since "Hello Bikini Bottom!" (in packaging order), "The Good Krabby Name" (in production order), and "Move It or Lose It" / "Chum Fricassee" (in airing order) which were all from the parent series, SpongeBob SquarePants. This is also the first 4:3 title card used in the franchise since season 8 of the parent series.
    • The entire "Hamdonia Hooray" cartoon was boarded and animated in widescreen, but the scene was kept to a 4:3 ratio in order to keep the action towards the middle for a clean cut.
  • This marks the first appearance of Billy Bob Star in The Patrick Star Show, as well as his return following "Rule of Dumb."
