“Then why don't you fix this rust bucket up? Look around. Chipping paint, bad plumbing, dust bunnies, it's no wonder you don't have any customers.”

"Bucket Sweet Bucket" is the second segment of the sixth episode of season 5, and it is paired with "Roller Cowards." In this episode, Plankton gets the help of SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward to redecorate the Chum Bucket, while he attempts to steal the formula.



Plankton complains about his restaurant not getting business, so Karen suggests he cleans the place up. He starts redecorating on his own, until he sees SpongeBob and Patrick playing. He asks them if they could help him paint the Chum Bucket for Karen's sake, and they start doing that.

Later, Squidward is listening to music while walking when he sees SpongeBob and Patrick's terrible artistic skills, and starts painting the restaurant himself. Eventually, SpongeBob gets thirsty, but since his pipes are rusted shut, he can't offer him a drink, so he goes to the Krusty Krab to take some pipes from there, flooding the place. When Plankton enters the Krusty Krab to steal the formula, the water comes pouring out.

Afterward, he sees Squidward's redecoration of his restaurant and dislikes it, so he changes it to a log cabin setting. Later, SpongeBob and Patrick put windows on the Chum Bucket, but they aren't put correctly, making Plankton mad. The two promise him to keep working on the restaurant until it is the most pizazziest restaurant in town.

Plankton goes back into the Krusty Krab to steal the formula, while SpongeBob and Patrick take items from there to the Chum Bucket. He goes into the safe and takes out the formula, only to realize it's a to-do list. When he comes out of the safe, he sees that the Krusty Krab is gone and in the place of where his restaurant should be.

Plankton gets angry at SpongeBob and Patrick for doing this, while Mr. Krabs comes back from his vacation and moves the restaurant back to its original position, and reveals he took the formula with him on vacation. Later, the Krusty Krab has been remodeled by Squidward using parts of the Chum Bucket.
