Operation: Krabby Patty is a SpongeBob video game, released by THQ in 2001.
At the beginning of the game, you have to choose which side of the bed to wake up on. Both sides have different plots.
 Right Side
Plankton hires a bunch of sea ants to use Robo Krabs to get all the Krabby Patties from the Krusty Krab. Then, SpongeBob tries to wake up Squidward (who is sleeping) and tells him about it. Squidward tells SpongeBob that Mr. Krabs is off on a treasure hunt (similar to the episode Arrgh!). SpongeBob says he'll drive to Mr. Krabs even though he doesn't have a license. So he goes to get his license from Mrs. Puff's Boating School. Then he gets his learner's permit. The boat he's in goes haywire and sends him near the "Carnival" (hooks from Hooky) which is where Patrick is at. They have a little fun until the learner's permit flies away and lands in the mouth of a clam. "So much for my learner's permit," SpongeBob says. They go over to the "Carnival." SpongeBob then goes up on a hook and sees Robo Krabs. He jumps down and lands on a Jellyfish. Sandy is near by so he goes to see her. "I've been waiting for my Jellyfishing partner," she says. They start to chase after jellyfish and their nets aren't working to well so they get out the net guns. A jellyfish passes by and lands in SpongeBob's net. SpongeBob holds on and when he lets go he lands in Mr. Krabs' ship. Mr. Krabs tells SpongeBob to fire at the ghosts (who work for the Flying Dutchman). Just then, Robo Krabs (controlled by the sea ants) go by and take a peek. SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs about Robo Krabs and the missing Krabby Patties. Plankton tells the sea ants to press the fire button, but it is actually the self destruct button. It destroys Robo Krabs, saving the Krabby Patties, and killing the sea ants.

 Wrong Side
SpongeBob wakes up and finds that Gary is gone! He finds a tape recorder. It (Plankton) tells SpongeBob that Gary is hidden. SpongeBob has to first get his learner's permit from Mrs. Puff's Boating School. Then SpongeBob comes back and this time he has to get some jellyfish jelly. He goes and tells Patrick to help him catch jellyfish. After they're done, SpongeBob looks for the tape recorder and finds out that Patrick ate it! He presses the play button (actually Patrick's belly) and finds out he has to get some Krabby Patties. Patrick then burps out the tape recorder. Plankton tells the sea ants to tag along and get the Krabby Patties and bring them to the Chum Bucket, but they mishear and take them to SpongeBob's house. SpongeBob gets the Krabby Patties and a new tape recorder. Plankton says for SpongeBob to get some cheese. SpongeBob goes to the "Carnival." He sees Squidward and he helps SpongeBob get the cheese. Squidward plays a trick on SpongeBob disguising his voice as Patrick He takes of a mask and has a Patrick mask on. Patrick sounds like Willie the Anchovy. He takes off the mask and has a Willie the Anchovy mask on. He has his regular voice. He takes off the mask and it's Squidward again. He goes home and finds the tape recorder with no tape. Plankton is listening to a self-hypnosis tape and finds out he forgot to put the tape in the tape recorder. He sends the tape recorder to SpongeBob and tells him to give him $100 in order to find Gary. SpongeBob goes to Mr. Krabs (who is having a treasure hunt) and SpongeBob says that he will give Mr. Krabs $1,000 for working at the Krusty Krab for one year. SpongeBob walks home and Gary jumps out the window of the Chum Bucket and into SpongeBob's arms. SpongeBob and Gary are happy. Plankton counts the Krabby Patties and counts backwards, which causes the Chum Bucket to explode. Plankton lands and gets his record player.

- Mr. Lawrence as Sheldon J. Plankton
- Carolyn Lawrence as Sandy Cheeks
- This is the first SpongeBob SquarePants game for the PC.
- A poster of this game appears in the weather station in the level Rock Bottom in the game Employee of the Month and SpongeBob says "That was my first video game".
- Ironically, the first SpongeBob game was actually Legend of the Lost Spatula.
- This has been the only time where Big Lenny one time lived in Jellyfish Fields.
- The sea ants have cartoon versions when you play invasion of the patty snatchers.
- An unused model of Mr Krabs MRKRAB.PRO is in the game. Mr Krabs was probably intended to be a playable character in the "Save Me Money!" levels, since when you replace MRKRAB.PRO with Z5SPON.PRO, it turns out he has animation for when he mounts the cannons.
- Mr Krabs does appear in the game, but it's a 2D sprite steering the ship in "Save Me Money!".
