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! Written by Anonymous

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 »


Squidward: SpongeBob?
SpongeBob: Yes?
Squidward: You know I hate you, right?
SpongeBob: Yes. Yes I do.
Squidward: Well, I hate the smell of burning Krabby Patties more.
[He takes SpongeBob's hand and gets down on one pair of knees]
Squidward: Please come back and be the fry cook again.

Not a really good special
16 March 2019 | by derpicassodpSee all my reviews

It's just an depressing and sad episode, which sometimes tries to be funny, but doesn't really manage it. Also some parts aren't really rational. I also don't like the characeters' behavior. The first part of the episode was very bad, but the 2nd part of it got a bit better. It's just an forgettable episode, which lost much potential to be a good one.
