“Farm hand! Oh, boy!”

"FarmerBob" is the first segment of the first episode of season 12, and it is paired with "Gary & Spot." In this episode, SpongeBob and Patrick help out on Old Man Jenkins' farm for a day.



Mr. Krabs takes SpongeBob to Old Man Jenkins' farm to make him pay for his grocery bill by being his farm hand, and sends Patrick to help as well. Old Man Jenkins first tasks them with getting eggs from the oyster coop by tickling them. SpongeBob tries, but he fails, so Patrick uses a crowbar to get them out, hurting himself in the process and making the oysters laugh and spit eggs.

Their next task is to feed the worm hogs, and after that, they are tasked to milk Ol' Bessy. Last but not least, they have to harvest Old Man Jenkins' kelp patch with his Old Man Jenkins' tractor, which Patrick can use as he has a tractor license. Things go smoothly until a jellybee appears and distracts Patrick.

SpongeBob uses a rope to catch it, but misses, but thankfully catches it in his nose. Patrick throws SpongeBob out of the tractor and he rides around in the back, until the jellybee gets loose again and stings SpongeBob, making him fly around the tractor and get run over. After Patrick gets out of the tractor, he and SpongeBob get excited for the barn dance, until the barn gets destroyed by the tractor.

SpongeBob and Patrick raise a baby barn to adulthood because of this, and after successfully doing that, hold the barn dance. During the party, some aliens arrive and start dancing with SpongeBob, Patrick, and Old Man Jenkins, and tell them that they got the invitation from the crop circle the tractor made. The aliens leave to destroy the universe, and Mr. Krabs comes by to pick SpongeBob and Patrick, only to get abducted by a UFO as they're driving home.
