But what about the episode when Mr Krabbys and Plakton were best friends and had a small business. And when the small business ended they fought over the recipient and Mr. Krabs got half and Plakton got the other half. Plakton got the chum part but Mr. Krabs got the better part.

So its kinda like Mark Beaks in the Ducktales?? So.. Its like Beaks making "Project TahDah" Which is a fake.. to invest Billions???...
The secret ingredient is there old janitor, Carl, he was also a krabby, therefore the secret ingredient is krabs. Think about the name of the franchise, the krusty krab.

Erin Fisher:But in the first spongebob movie, plankton stole the formula and was able to make the exact patty with the formula Me: I just think plankton is part of the act so that he can get paid secretly. How else would he be able to pay for all of those gadgets and technology without customers to pay him. Mr. crabs does not like spending his money but what plankton is doing is giving Mr.Crabs much more money Also I don’t think the creators of the movie really cared about that logic I think they just wanted to create a better entertainment for the show. I don’t honestly think that the creators care much about that.

Have you heard of the enigma in world war 2? There is no way to decipher a message there unless you had a similar setup.
CrazyGirl Day ago
In the second movie, they go into a apocalypse because the formula went missing, and almost sacrificed Mr.Krabs. When that was going on, why didn't he just say it's fake or just make some himself?

CrazyGirl Thank you 😀
CrazyGirl Day ago
Sun Moon 🧐 good thought, I never thought of that. 👍
Sun Moon
Sun Moon Day ago
CrazyGirl But I thought of Mr Krabs used a machine similar to the Enigma used in World War II. The messages made with the Enigma are almost indecipherable because of a complex mechanisms and system of gears. Maybe plankton somehow has a way to decipher the formula by having the exact same setup as Mr Krabs.
Sun Moon
Sun Moon Day ago
CrazyGirl I thought that as well
Possibility #3: The letters in the formula are scrambled and plankton just needs to translate it

It would make sense if it was cocaine cause the town almost burned it self to the grown for those patties and started the apocalypse in less then a day.

Well I have my own theory.... So if you haven't noticed. The restaurant is a crab trap. And you know how we see SpongeBob's grandma, but we never see Mr. Crabs family, not a single one but his "Daughter". So I think the secret formula is his families own flesh. And BOOM! It all comes together!

Option A maybe there is no paper that has the formula. BUT In a episode spongebob and Mr.Krabs Have An Argument if its seasalt of landsalt and in another episode Mr.Krabs Just TELLS Spongebob the formula instead of showing the formula. But if Krabs DID Just mash The keyboard, WHY did Mr.Krabs send the formula Far FAR away And try to get it back by sending spongebob to send it and in the sponge out water movie mr krabs needs the formula to make a patty and when mr krabs was frozen in the movie plankton stole the formula and people started buyinh plankton burgers. SOOO Option B Mr Krabs Places The FAKE Formula In the safe and Switches The Correcy Formula In Or Out the safe and juat never tells spongebob that he switches the formula so he never leaves his guard down anytime anywhere any galaxy any timeline any universe. Edit: That was long.

Only problem I see in this theory is that in the episode "Krabby Road", in which you mentioned, the episode's point was for plankton to hear Spongebob's tune that he was singing about the formula (the one where Mr. Krabs has Spongebob censor the ingredient lyrics). So that is already an indication that Spongebob knows the formula or some type of recipe Mr. Krabs gave him.

But matpat if the secret formula is not real then why did sponge bob, Mr crabs, sandy, patrick,and squidward go to the land to find the formula oh wait it because Mr crabs wants sponge Bob to believe that there is a secret recipe. But still why would mr crabs risk his life? Pls answer this and thank you for taking the time to read it

Yeah but have you seen the episode where Mr.Krabs eats a Krabby Patty and says “Well that’s what I taste like”
gregory pantos
gregory pantos 3 days ago
so...wait, if the krabby patty formulla really is a bungh of gibberish typed on paper and mr krabs doesn't care wether it get's stolen or not then why did he almost kill plankton during the movie sponge out of water? heck, he almost sacrificed spongebob. and to top it all of, neither he nor anyone else could make a single krabby patty, causing chaos all over bikinni bottom. if it is just a marketing scheme then why would he lose all of that money and his sanity? also let's not forget that when the pirate stole the formula, he managed to replicate the krabby patties and sell them to humans. finally, in an episode of the series (i don't really remember number or season) we see the origins of mr krabs and plankton. we see that mr krabs created the secret formula by throwing random ingridients iside a cauldron by mistake. the krabby patty could be a scheme but when you look all of the above...is it really?

i think the secret formula is.... Crab meat since the resturaunt is called The Krusty Krab, it might mean the food...is made of crab meat...so i guess Mr Krab is using other of his kind for food = btw you can comment if you have a diffrent idea of what the Seeeeccreeet fourmula is... and you can just agree with Matpat if ya want da end of my super long theory BAIIIIII

The fact that you can devote so much effort into finding out that Zootopia has cocaine, or that the hunger games catch phrase tells you how to win i'm surprised to see that you could be so blind. it says MULTIPLE TIMES in the series that the secret ingredient is LOVE. YOU WENT THROUGH ALL OF THIS BUT NOT ONCE DID YOU WATCH A EPISODE THAT SAID THE INGREDIENT IS LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS SO OBVIOUS!!!!! HOW BLIND CAN ONE BE!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO SPONGE BOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ruvid.net/video/video-NSQ9s97U_rs.html Wait till the end
