Plot

SpongeBob and Patrick are going to a prank store, but they can't seem to find a good prank for only a dollar. After the store clerk suggests useless items like a fake one dollar bill, fake vomit, and real vomit, he eventually shows them a can of Invisible Spray, calling it "the perfect prank". The only problem is that it stains clothes. SpongeBob thinks they should spray a park bench, and then sit on it to trick the public into thinking they're sitting on nothing. Patrick agrees, and reminds SpongeBob that the spray stains clothes so they'll have to do the prank naked. They take their clothes off. They then get in a fight about who is going to use the spray and use up all the spray on themselves. They are now totally invisible and the spray can is empty.


They decide instead of the spraying the bench prank, they should scare people (or fish) and make them believe they (SpongeBob and Patrick) are ghosts. They scare Mrs. Puff, Sandy, Squidward and just about everyone else in Bikini Bottom, except Mr. Krabs whom is printed in the newspaper as the only person not to be scared by them. Mr. Krabs even claims not to be scared of ghosts, but they prank him anyway. That night at the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs is ready for the "ghosts" by putting on his ghost protecting gear. They come in and scare Mr. Krabs silly, and when he tries to escape he sees that the doors are glued shut, the windows were replaced with rubber, and toilets are clogged with toilet paper. They then chase him into the bathroom and threaten to burn his dollar. Mr. Krabs stops them with water, and the water also washes off the spray which reveals them to be SpongeBob and Patrick.


Mr. Krabs says not to worry, he says that he's hip and that he pranked as a kid too; and then asks the duo why they are naked. The spray stains clothes, SpongeBob replies (even though we saw their clothes get sprayed in the beginning of the episode). They start to head home, but Mr. Krabs has set up a prank in less than two seconds making them part of the Krusty Krab Show, "Live Nude Pranksters." All of Bikini Bottom is watching, including everyone they scared! Nudity is a common subject both in fine arts and popular culture. ...

  • When Mr. Krabs attempts to escape the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob and Patrick have already blocked the possible exits. But how is that possible? Gluing the doors could make sense if they did it right as they entered (even though the water would actually wash it away), but replacing the windows with rubber and clogging the toilets would've required them to do it before they made themselves known to Mr. Krabs. And how come the Krusty Krab is immediately full even though the exits are blocked? How does Mr. Krabs get into the restaurant portion after talking to Spongebob and Patrick?
  • The escape pod to Texas is also seen in the popular animated series "The Fairly Odd Parents"
