It doesn't matter how old you are, chances are you have seen an episode of Spongebob SquarePants. From its charming and delightful characters, to the hilarious writing and animation, there isn't a 90's kid on earth who at one time or another wouldn't drop whatever they are doing and rush to the TV to catch their favorite episode of Spongebob. Now as one of those people myself, you can imagine that I have a certain attachment to the show, and although I do not watch it as often as i do, I still occasionally catch a new episode or two. And the fact of the matter is it is not the same. I mean, no disrespect to the team who makes the shows but they don't have the same humor that they used to. If you love something, you have to let it go. So since i would rather not see Spongebob Squarepants stretched to its limit until someone has no other choice but to cancel it I have taken the liberty to make my own ending that I think will do the beloved children's television series justice. (no need to thank me.)
The Episode Begins
The episode opens at a party being thrown at Spongebob's House. The music is bumping and the fruity pineapple walls of our hero's humble abode are filled to the brim with characters from the entire series. The Nematodes, magic conch shell, the Hash-slinging-slasher, Bubble Bass, and every other character in the show is there to celebrate one thing. Mrs. Puff's retirement. Upon finding out that his favorite teacher in the whole world was quitting for good, Spongebob pulled out all of the stops to make sure her retirement party was the best shindig in the sea. After he was done crying of course. The first couple of minutes are filled with antics and hilarity as old characters are revisited and the show takes on a more nostalgic feel. Mrs Puff had been mingling with the other party guests when she finally approaches Spongebob who was doing his best to hold back the waterfalls of tears behind his eyes. Mrs Puff keeps it sweet and short when giving her final goodbye to her student. But not before handing him...
Our dear sponge is overwhelmed with joy and performs several celebratory dances that thoroughly disturb the other party-goers and causes them to leave. After giving Mrs Puff a sobbing farewell Spongebob hops in the first car he sees (which does not belong to him) and goes out for a drive. Spongebob, wanting to show off his new hot rod, drives all over town. He's been driving for almost 10 seconds when he sees Sandy Cheeks walking on the side of the road. Leaning almost completely out of his car Spongebob loudly flails and screams trying to show off to his fellow karate enthusiast. Sandy giggles at her (badly) driving friend and is about to wave back, until her eyes flood with panic and she shouts a desperate warning to Spongebob who did not hear her warning over his own screaming. Spongebob drifted into the intersection and was hit from the side by an extremely fast moving boat and both of the vehicles explode on impact, causing the passengers in both vehicles to disintegrate instantly. Looney Tunes style.
The following day, a funeral is held in Spongebob's honor. Anyone who knew Spongebob or even had one of his delicious krabby patties attended the solemn event. In fact the only one who did not show up was his best friend Patrick Star who had not left his house since hearing of the accident. This scene is actually very emotional and ends with Squidward playing his clarinet at his neighbor's grave because he knows how much Spongebob loved hearing him play it. Suddenly overcome by emotion, Squidward throws himself on Spongebob's casket and in-between sobs confesses his love for him. It makes total sense. Squidward could never come to terms with his own sexuality, and the fact that he was in love with his neighbor only frustrated him further. So he would always keep it inside and used anger and developed a hard mean nature to mask his true feeling. I mean why else would he put up with Spongebob for as long as he did?
Squidward Leaves the funeral, retreats his house and does not leave for the rest of the episode. After Spongebob's funeral Mr. Krabs makes his way to Patrick's house to check up on him. He swings open Patrick's unusually heavy rock with a grunt and yelps in horror as he sees the starfish's lifeless body dangling from a rope in rock ceiling tied around his neck. As Mr. Krabs runs to get help, the camera pans down and the audience can see a photo album filled with pictures of Spongebob and Patrick. Completely covered in tears.
Krabs slips into a deep dark depression, and with no one to man the register or make the patties, his business fails and the Krusty Krab becomes less popular than even the Chum Bucket. Mr. Krabs is forced to foreclose his house and is living on the street with his daughter Pearl. Now, Mr Krabs is a cheap crustacean, but when he caught his dear daughter selling her body down the street for money, he knew something must be done. A broken man- or... crab, Mr. Krabs with nothing left to lose sells the Krabby Patty secret formula to the highest bidder. Guess who that is?
Plankton without hesitation buys the Krabby patty secret formula from his nemisis as well as the Krusty Krab. Upon learning the secret to the Krabby patty, plankton begins to manufacture tons of Krusty Krabs all over Bikini Bottom, and eventually the entire ocean. He becomes a billionaire. He spends his money on funding his gangs who go around forcing people to buy his product, and bribing the Bikini Bottom police into staying out of his affairs. Plankton even has his finger wrapped around King Neptune and the rest of the gods and is giving them a portion of his profits, effectively corrupting Bikini Bottom. His evil corporations slowly spread across the sea and Bikini Bottom becomes the hub and epicenter for crime in the ocean. Plankton basically becomes an untouchable evil kingpin, crime boss, billionaire and gang leader and even goes so far as killing off people who cause him problems. But in spite of Plankton's evil grip over the sea, a small underground revolution had been sparked. This uprising is led by...
Who other than the two ACTUAL superheros would be a better symbol of the rebellion? Besides Katniss Everdeen of course. The revolution founded by the two heroes start to recruit more and more members including, Larry the lobster, Mr. Krabs, Pearl, some of the bar-goers from the Salty Spittoon, Gary the snail, and the Flying Dutchman. Plankton and his men outnumbered them by far but as long as they had the element of surprise on their side the two heroes were confident that they could win. Just when some of the members were starting to express doubt that they would have a chance against Plankton and his people, Squilliam Fancyson joined the fight in a surprising display of good nature and provided enough money for the rebellion to acquire everything they would need. The next day the rebellion began brainstorming on how they would overthrow Plankton. And as the plan began to come together, a last minute member decided to join the fight against the corrupt kingpin who could turn the tide of the revolution...
Plankton's computer wife joins Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy in the fight against her husband in a surprising turn of events. After buying the Krabby Patty secret formula, Plankton became a different person, and Karen did not like who he became. He was not the organism that she fell in love with anymore. Karen provided the rebellion with precious and valuable information on Plankton, and with her help, the heroes were able to work out a perfect plan to fight Plankton and win back Bikini Bottom and the rest of the Ocean. It was time for action.
The heroes were up early the next morning deciding the sooner they made their move the better. In the cover of the lingering night, the group made their way through the darkness moving as quietly as their fins would allow. Weapons at the ready, the rebellion bypassed security and infiltrated the Chum bucket. But when they reached the inner walls of Plankton's dwelling, they encountered nothing but silence. Just as the confusion set in the small group of heroes were ambushed. Karen had lied to them and sold them out. Plankton knew about the rebellion as soon as Karen got in and sent him information of what they were planning. They began taking fire from above. From all sides, The group fought back valiantly taking out an impressive amount of Plankton's men, but in the end, Plankton's forces prevailed. The rebellion was short lived. Every member of the rebellion was brutally slaughtered in battle except for Mermaid Men and Barnacle Boy. As a display of power, and to act as deterrent against any future rebellions, the two heroes were publicly executed, and the footage was broadcast across the entire sea. Plankton had won.
And so Plankton sat on his evil throne. Virtually untouchable. He had finally achieved all of the power that he had always wanted. There was no one in the entire ocean who could stop him now. Suddenly all of the lights in Bikini Bottom shut off. Plankton in a state of panic rushed outside with some of his men, thinking that this was some type of attack. But when they arrived outside, everything in the entire town, was pitch black, except for one blinding white light. Plankton roared in anger and commanded his troops to go and destroy the source of the light. He knew he should have been watching her more closely. As he watched his troops sprint off to the source of the light with their weapons raised, he couldn't help but fear the only other person in Bikini Bottom who could call herself his intellectual equal...
Sandy Cheeks couldn't help but feel responsible for her friend's death. Maybe if Spongebob hadn't been waving at her he would have been able to avoid that boat. Sandy knew that it was his death that caused this chain of events leading up to know. But she was going to change all of that. Sandy never spent time to mourn, or to check to see what was going on in Bikini Bottom. Since Spongebob's death Sandy had been hard at work in her tree dome working on her most ambitious project ever made. Sandy had just finished the machine and was giving it a test run when it caused a black out in Bikini Bottom. By the time she was ready to use it for its intended purpose, Plankton's men had already reached her dome. In seconds the glass walls of her tree dome were compromised and water began to rush in from all sides, she had only seconds to react. In one fluid motion Sandy turned on her time machine, set it to exactly a minute before Spongebob's accident and hopped inside. The world around her warped and she felt the rush of icy air as she was transported thought time, In an heroic attempt to save Bikini Bottom.
Sandy opened her eyes in Bikini Bottom. It was much quieter and calmer that it was in the future. Without the chaos of Plankton's gangs and the violence in the streets the place seemed almost normal. But Sandy had a mission to do. She performed a quick search and took the first boat that she could find which looked slightly broken down. And as fast as she possibly could, Sandy made her way to where Spongebob would die. The boat was fast but the steering was almost non existent. It would only make left turns properly. Right turns took twice as long to make and she had to slow down if she didnt want to flip the boat. She was down to 20 seconds and she was nearing the intersection where Spongebob died. Sandy attempted to apply the brakes to no avail. She could not slow down. As she speeded closer and closer to the intersection she could see the past version of herself walking along the side of the road. Suddenly Spongebob's boat came into view. At the rate this was going she was going to run into Spong-
It all made sense now. She was the one who hit Spongebob in the first place. It was the future version of herself that she watched run into her friend and kill him. Sandy knew what she had to do. Sandy took a deep breath and prepared for what she was about to do. A second before she ran into Spongebob's car she gathered all of her strength and jerked the wheel to the left. The speeding boat narrowly avoided Spongebob's boat and careened into the squirrel walking on the side of the road. Sandy plowed through the past version of herself and the two squirrels along with the boat crashed into a building on the side of the road exploding on impact. Sandy was dead.
Because of Sandy's sacrifice, Spongebob continued living, thus creating a new timeline where the events leading up to Plankton's evil rule never happened. So Spongebob, Partick, Squidward And the other inhabitants of the town live the rest of their lives in Bikini bottom, without never knowing the brave sacrifice that Sandy made to save them all. The end. . . ?
