Over the course of its twenty-plus year run on television, SpongeBob SquarePants has become one of the most beloved children’s cartoons, inspiring countless media adaptations from comics to feature films to video games and beyond.
But recently, many SpongeBob fans have been left frightened after discovering a viral document that recounts Mr. Krabs’ death and seemingly implicates SpongeBob and Plankton.
The document, titled The Trial of SpongeBob SquarePants, detailed the gruesome manner in which Mr. Krabs died and the evidence connecting his murder to other parties.
Twitter users have re-ignited interest in Mr. Krabs’ strange death by encouraging others to investigate the case online.
The Trial of Spongebob Squarepants
It looks like a school project based on The Trial of SpongeBob SquarePants would be a fun and challenging assignment for students.
The major document that fans have come upon is a two-page PDF that recounts Mr. Krabs’ death and a list of evidence and witness statements surrounding the case.
The text, by itself, is strange and slightly unsettling.
There is, however, an alternative 11-page PDF version of the same paper available, which contains worksheets and instructions that explicitly address the possibility of students working in teams as either the defense or the prosecution.
Students are asked to look at the evidence and decide who killed Mr. Krabs without considering their prior knowledge of the SpongeBob series.
The Case: How Did Mr. Krabs Die?
It is revealed that Mr. Krabs‘ throat was slashed and he was found dead in the Krusty Krab restaurant in the Trial of SpongeBob SquarePants document.
A metal spatula, like the one, found next to Mr. Krabs’ death and stained with his blood, was determined by the coroner to have caused the wound.
Mr. Krabs also had symptoms of blunt-force injuries on the back of his skull. As if that weren’t enough, the grease-splattered floor of the Krusty Krab made it difficult to keep your footing.
SpongeBob’s footprints, along with those of several other people, were discovered in the grease, but not in the pool of Mr. Krabs’ blood.
The safe containing Mr. Krabs’ secret Krabby Patty recipe was opened and the cash register at the Krusty Krab was empty, but there was no evidence of a break-in.
Mr. Krabs’s claw had a minor gash that had started to heal, and it was estimated that the injury had occurred a few weeks prior.
Who Actually Killed Mr. Krabs?
Participants in the game are given the task of determining who killed Mr. Krabs.
The burden of proving SpongeBob’s innocence or guilt rests with the prosecution and defense, respectively.
If we examine the data for ourselves, however, we can see that several scenarios exist for Mr. Krabs’s demise.
It’s possible that he slipped on the wet floor and accidentally slashed his throat, but that still doesn’t explain the missing money from the safe and register.
Here the finger of blame is pointed at Plankton, Mr. Krabs’ long-time rival, who began selling burgers with a remarkably similar recipe to the legendary Krabby Patty not long after Mr. Krabs’ death.
To add further confusion, two days after Plankton started selling the burgers, he went to the bank and paid off the rest of SpongeBob’s house debt.
According to the report, SpongeBob’s dissatisfaction with his salary at the Krusty Krab stems from the fact that he’s never received a raise in his ten years there.
That leaves open the possibility that Mr. Krabs’ death was an accident caused by the wet floor, and that SpongeBob and Plankton conspired to steal the Krabby Patty formula.
