Fire up the grill for over 2 hours of work-centric tales featuring Bikini Bottom's most dedicated fry cook, SpongeBob SquarePants. But what happens when this loyal worker gets the heave-ho? Find out in the special double-episode, SpongeBob You're Fired! Then enjoy more adventures from the grill when SpongeBob goes to work for Plankton, pulls a spatula from a vat of ancient grease, meets his Krusty Krab predecessor, takes his talents to a snooty French restaurant, challenges Squidward for "Employee of the Month," prepares "sal-ads," cooks up the Krusty Krab's latest culinary offering (which looks like a hot dog but tastes an awful lot like a Krabby Patty!), renews his milkshake-making license and more! You'll even get to relive the moment when SpongeBob came aboard the Krusty Krew, painted Mr. Krabs' living room, starred in the video for all new Krusty Krab employees and delivered the first (and only) Krusty Krab pizza. It's all on the menu for your viewing enjoyment!
Did You Know?
"SpongeBob, You're Fired!" was labeled as one of a few of very controversial cartoon episodes that aired on TV, targeting the subject matter of unemployment (although strangely 'Can You Spare A Dime?' tackled the same issue and that wasn't viewed as such). It was later taken off the air and was shown very rarely after that. See more
After Mister Weiner kidnaps SpongeBob and tells him that he's been promoted, he's wearing his Weenie Hut hat. In the next shot, he's wearing his Krusty Krab hat. Then in the shot after that, he's wearing his Weenie Hut hat again. See more
You know I hate you, right?
Yes. Yes I do.
Well, I hate the smell of burning Krabby Patties more.

Please come back and be the fry cook again.
In the German version, when Squiward is woken up by having his hat knocked off, he says, "Oh, that again", implying that it keeps happening. See more
