What’s it about?

Burger-Beard the Pirate finds a magic book that makes his dreams come true. With the book, Burger-Beard steals Krusty Krab’s secret recipe for its famous Krabby Patties. SpongeBob and Plankton make a time machine to go back in time and stop the recipe from being stolen. But to save their town of Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob and Plankton must also travel to the real world to find and defeat Burger-Beard.

What to look out for

  • There is lots of fighting between members of Bikini Bottom. The fighting includes cannons, guns, bombs and other dangerous weapons
  • There are some scary characters: Burger-Beard is a mean looking pirate with a loud voice and the evil Robot Plankton looks quite scary
  • There are lots of girls in skimpy bikinis
  • The part where SpongeBob and Plankton are sacrificed to the gods may be scary

Moral of the Story

The main message of this story is that you can get more done when you work as a team
