"CopyBob DittoPants" is the second segment of the 199th episode of SpongeBob SquarePants.


When Plankton, Karen and SpongeBob throw a party, SpongeBob gets shown a copy machine. Plankton puts the copier on "Scan" and it scans SpongeBob. He clicks print and makes a SpongeBob clone the next day and then he colors the tie blue with a marker. Then the next day, at the krusty krab, the copy walks over to the real SpongeBob and they work for Mr. Krabs. Squidward goes crazy because he thinks he's dreaming. So he beats up the customers and Krabs. Plankton makes 305 more clones to ask for the formula but then after they find out what it is twice, one of them turn into a light gray hue. Next, it rolled up into the shape of a burrito and then vanished in mid-air. The same happens with all the other clones. Squidward comes back and then squishes Plankton and he says "Right on my keys." and the episode ends.


Vincent Waller confirmed this episode on Twitter on April 18, 2016.[1]


  • When the episode originally aired, it was paired with "SpongeBob LongPants," which was also written by Kaz. The next day, it was paired with "Larry's Gym."
  • This episode marks Karen's first speaking role since The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, although her first new appearance was a cameo in "Mall Girl Pearl."
  • This is the first episode to have a title card with the title being repeated more than twice.
  • The SpongeBob copy that disappears when SpongeBob hugs him and yells, "No! Don't disappear!" is most likely Me Three, as he faded after Me Two, but before all the other copies.
  • This is the first time Patrick appears in an episode, without him communicating with Spongebob, even though he was playing with SpongeCopies.
  • This episode also confirms, as of this episode, Plankton has no children.
  • This episode must take place before "Married to Money" because in that episode, Mr. Krabs claimed he never told anyone the secret formula, and in this episode he had no problem telling the SpongeCopy's the secret formula. Or this could simply be a continuity error, or Mr. Krabs lied to Cashina.

Cultural References

  • In the scene where a bunch of clones march out of the Chum Bucket to the Krusty Krab, it is a reference to The Wizard of Oz.
