Why do fans think Mr. Krabs dies in SpongeBob SquarePants?

A PDF file titled The Trial of SpongeBob SquarePants was posted on the internet, describing the crime scene of the death of Krusty Krab owner Mr. Krab.

“Mr. Krabs was found dead inside the Krusty Krab restaurant. His throat had been slit. The coroner concluded that Mr. Krabs’ throat injury was caused by a metal spatula,” the document begins. .

“The coroner concluded that Mr. Krabs had bled to death, but the victim was also showing signs of blunt trauma to the back of his head.”

SpongeBob SquarePants, Plankton, and Squidward are all named as potential suspects in the Krabs murder.

In the “trial” of the proceedings, characters like Patrick and Sandy Cheeks provide their testimony.

Sandy testified that SpongeBob was in desperate need of the money because the bank was going to repossess his pineapple house, while Patrick testified that SpongeBob told him, “Mr. Krabs is a greedy pig. He’s going to wish he gave me a raise!

Although Plankton started selling crab burgers after Krabs died, he claimed in fiction that he did not steal Mr. Krabs’ Krabby Patty recipe and that he did not kill Mr. . Krabs.

Squidward allegedly saw SpongeBob SquarePants enter the Krusty Krab restaurant two hours before Mr. Krabs was found dead.

There was no conclusion to the document.

The PDF is from, which is the website for Springfield, Illinois public school District 186. You would think The Trial of SpongeBob SquarePants was a school project that accidentally went viral.

Why did SpongeBob SquarePants remove two episodes from airing?

The creators of SpongeBob SquarePants have been forced to take down episodes, one because of its “virus storyline” and another which features Mr. Krab’s “panty raid”, after failing a review of standards.

The hit children’s television show has withdrawn the 12th season episode of “Kwarantined Krab” from the public, given its plot about a global pandemic.

He also released “Mid-Life Crustacean” because it was inappropriate for children.

“The ‘Kwarantined Crab’ centers around a virus scenario, so we have decided not to release it due to the sensitivities surrounding the global and actual pandemic,” Nickelodeon said Tuesday in a statement to Deadline.

The 2019 episode features a health inspector who finds a case of “clam flu” at the Krusty Krab restaurant where SpongeBob SquarePants works, and quarantines all customers inside.

The season was only released on DVD last January, with the exception of the deleted episode “Kwarantined Krab”.

The other episode of the beloved children’s series took off-rotation includes “Mid-Life Crustacean,” a 2003 episode in which SpongeBob and Patrick take out Mr. Krabs to have a good time while he goes through his midlife crisis.

“Mid-Life Crustacean” has not been in rotation since 2018, following a review of standards in which we determined that certain elements of the story were not suitable for children, ”said a representative from Nickelodeon.

The rep also didn’t comment on what scenes he considered inappropriate or if he considered flashing a content warning in front of the episode before deleting it altogether.

While he has yet to confirm which scene marked the episode ready for removal, there is one scene in which Patrick suggests a “panty raid” to his cohort.

This was followed by Spongebob, Patrick and Mr. Krabs breaking into a woman’s house to steal her underwear, which inevitably turned out to be Mr. Krabs’ own mother they were stealing.
