“Behold PlanKrab!”

"The Krusty Bucket" is the first segment of the seventh episode of season 12, and it is paired with "Squid's on a Bus." In this episode, when Plankton creates a hybrid clone of him and Krabs, the new being takes over both of their restaurants.



Plankton obtains hair from Mr. Krabs and combines it with one of his antenna in a cloning machine to make a creature called PlanKrab, and sends him out to steal the formula. Later, Plankton is wondering what's taking PlanKrab so long, and it turns out he took over the restaurant and kicked out Mr. Krabs, and after doing one of his magnificent handshakes with him, tricks Plankton and kicks him out as well.

After seeing all the changes to the Krusty Krab, now known as The Krusty Bucket, they work together to defeat PlanKrab. They first try to beat him up while he's throwing out the garbage, but this backfires and they are the ones who get beaten up. They then sell food at a small stand to lure customers to them, until PlanKrab makes a truck drive through the stand by holding a drive thru sign.

The two have a job interview with PlanKrab, and he makes them bathroom managers. As they are plumbing a toilet, they get into a fight as they are angry about the situation they are in, and cause a mess in the bathrooms. PlanKrab gets notified about this by a customer and gets angry at Mr. Krabs and Plankton for defiling his toilets.

He gets so angry his head splits into two, and the two heads start arguing about who's right and split each other apart in the process. Mr. Krabs and Plankton stop them and tells them to have a clean fight, but have them handshake. After handshaking, their bodies melt due to how good their handshakes are.
