SpongeBob SquarePants has been one of the most successful kids’ shows for almost two decades, and the absorbent yellow sea sponge has left its mark in media beyond television, including comic books, movies, video games, and more.

Fans of the pineapple-dwelling SpongeBob, on the other hand, have lately been left in shock after discovering a viral document that recounts Mr. Krabs’s killing and seemingly implicates SpongeBob and Plankton.

The document, titled The Trial of SpongeBob SquarePants, detailed the gruesome manner in which Mr. Krabs met his end and the evidence that implicated several parties.

Twitter users have re-ignited interest in the case by recommending that their followers research Mr. Krabs’ death online.


It might make sense to assign The Trial of SpongeBob SquarePants as a homework assignment for a school project.

A two-page PDF detailing Mr. Krabs’ death and a list of evidence and witness statements has been the primary document found by fans.

The document, taken by itself, is strange and perhaps a little unsettling.

An alternative, 11-page PDF version of the same material exists, including worksheets and instructions that explicitly address assigning students to teams to serve as either the defense or prosecution.

The game appears to be designed to get students to look at the facts presented, rather than rely on their prior knowledge of the SpongeBob series, in order to figure out who killed Mr. Krabs.


Mr. Krabs is found with his neck slashed in the Krusty Krab restaurant in the Trial of SpongeBob SquarePants document.

The coroner determined that a metal spatula was responsible for Mr. Krabs’ wound because a similar spatula was discovered next to his body, also covered in his blood.

Mr. Krabs showed symptoms of blunt-force injuries to the back of his skull as well. The Krusty Krab floor was also covered in oil, making it dangerous to walk on.

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 obvious trace of a break-in.

The little cut on Mr. Krabs’ claw had started to heal, and it was discovered that the injury had occurred a few weeks prior.


Participants in the challenge are given no clues as to who the murderer of Mr. Krabs might be.

Whether SpongeBob is found guilty or not is a matter for the prosecution and defense teams to argue.

But if we examine the data for ourselves, we realize that there are several potential scenarios for Mr. Krabs’s demise.

It’s possible that he slipped on the floor and accidentally slashed his throat, but that still doesn’t account for the missing money from the safe and register.

Now the finger of blame may be pointed at Plankton, Mr. Krabs’ long-time rival, because not long after Mr. Krabs’ death, Plankton started selling burgers with a remarkably similar recipe to the famed Krabby Patty.

Plankton went to the bank two days after he started selling the burgers and paid off SpongeBob’s house loan in full, further complicating matters.

According to the report, SpongeBob’s dissatisfaction with his salary at the Krusty Krab stems from the fact that he has never received a raise in his ten years there.

This raises 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 recipe.
