Patchy plot

Patchy, after ten years of wanting to meet SpongeBob, goes to Nickelodeon Studios to meet his favorite idol. He waits at the gate, hoping for SpongeBob. A security guard shows up and takes him to the casting room, where Patchy orders a shrimp cocktail. He sees something with celebrity phone numbers on it. His bad side (which is just Potty with horns and a cape) tells him to call, and his good side (Potty with an angel skirt) tells him not to. Patchy calls Rosario Dawson, and she hangs up because of his bad breath. He then decides to call Lebron James, but he hangs up because he has a game to attend to. He finally calls who he thinks is Tina Turner, but is actually Tina Fey. He decides to call Will Ferrell. He hangs up because he is supposedly going to host the 20th anniversary show. The last person he calls is Craig Ferguson, his old friend from pirate school, who tells him that Robin Williams is in the studio. Then Robin Williams shows up, and Patchy takes him to the green room. Patchy starts the show, and the guests are: The 3 Point Fowl, The Guy on the Penny, The Queen, Pink, Sir Quentin and Mr. Tinder. SpongeBob is supposed to be there, so Patchy goes looking for him. Later, P!nk decides to rehearse, and we hear some of their songs. Patchy finally gets to Bikini Atoll. He gets swallowed by a whale, and he decides to go ahead and show the outtakes and the rejected scenes. A film starts, and Patchy tells us that SpongeBob started as a thought, and that he was made into a primitive rendering. He then shows us Patrick, Mr. Krabs and Squidward versions of the theme song. Then we see a 1920's Mickey Mouse cartoon-style segment of SpongeBob going to work. Patchy gets spit out of the whale. He lands in the studio and he is knocked out. He dreams that he meets SpongeBob. He faints and the dream ends. The Guy on the Penny asks him if he is okay. Patchy says he will never meet SpongeBob, and The Guy on the Penny lifts up his hat, which has a plush SpongeBob underneath it. Patchy faints once again, and the Patchy segments end.

SpongeBob Plot

The Krusty Krab celebrates its "eleventy-seventh" anniversary, and Mr. Krabs plans to sell lots of Krabby Patties, and has also hired Patrick as a security guard, leaving SpongeBob and Squidward in charge of a hologram of the Krusty Krab, showing the air ducts below. Mr. Krabs leaves SpongeBob in charge of decorating. SpongeBob has all the decorations ready, but when he takes the whole group into the freezer to show them the big Krabby Patty he made out of ice, it proves too heavy for them to pull, and SpongeBob flies out, only to bounce back in, with the door closing and locking behind him. So SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs accidentally get locked in the freezer before they have a chance to celebrate. While finding their way through air shafts, they look back at some memorable moments in their lives and tell each other shocking reveals, thinking that they will never get out. SpongeBob even almost reveals the secret formula in a flashback! Meanwhile, Plankton finally finds the perfect opportunity to steal the Krabby Patty formula! But, like any other episode, the formula fails to come out to the public. We will have to keep waiting.
