Frankendoodle is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season two

. In this episode, SpongeBob creates DoodleBob.



An artist in a boat is drawing then drops his pencil in the sea and cries. The rule of the artist at sea number one: Always bring a spare pencil. SpongeBob and Patrick are playing "Rock, Paper, Scissors" using bubbles, when the pencil lands in between them. SpongeBob and Patrick then realize that whatever they draw with the pencil comes to life, thus naming it the "Magic Pencil". SpongeBob then draws "DoodleBob", a sketch version of himself intended to fool Squidward. However, DoodleBob begins beating Squidward up, steals the magic pencil, and wreaks havoc (such as trapping SpongeBob and Patrick in a hole, hitting Patrick with a wrench drawn from sand, a bowling ball made of a rock, and a regular rock.) until SpongeBob erases him (the eraser end of the pencil is capable of erasing anything, not just drawings). However, an arm remains, and in the night it steals the pencil from SpongeBob and draws itself back. DoodleBob wakes up SpongeBob and attempts to erase him, and during the struggle the pencil is snapped in half (DoodleBob has the eraser and SpongeBob has the point). DoodleBob sharpens his half, so he has an eraser and a point, and the two begin dueling until SpongeBob accidentally throws his pencil out the window hitting Squidward in the process. DoodleBob corners him in front of a bookshelf, but steps on an open book, sealing his leg onto the paper. SpongeBob kills DoodleBob on a piece of paper, and the page is framed on a wall. The pencil is propelled back to the artist who grabs it and continues drawing, but when he touches his canvas, the lead snaps. The rule of the artist at sea number two: Always bring a pencil sharpener.

  • The artist at sea is Mr. Lawrence, who voices Plankton.
  • The pencil shown in the live-action version is longer but the animated version is shorter. This is to make SpongeBob and Patrick easier to handle the pencil.
  • Originally in this episode Patrick said SpongeBob's drawing was "lower middle class" but it was changed to "lacks basic construction".
  • The title card is similar to "Oral Report", as both are on paper.
  • First time Patrick said "Finland". Second was Accidents Will Happen.
  • Spongebob telling Doodlebob that he brought him into this world and can take him out is a reference to a line from The Cosby Show: "You know, I brought you in this world, and I can take you out."
  • A youtuber has made a 10 minute loop of the finland quote. You can find it here
  • A similar mustache appeared in "The Slumber Party".
  • The quotes from Patrick whenever DoodleBob hits him with another doodle, 'Where's the leak, ma'am?" (hit in the head with a wrench), and "FINLAND!" (knocked down twice by a bowling ball) are popular on the internet.


  • The DoodleBob has three fingers at first, but when his hand enter SpongeBob's bedroom and takes the pencil, he has four fingers instead. After he redraws himself, he has three fingers again.
  • When SpongeBob tapes the pencil together, the two halves fit perfectly even though one half is sharpened.
  • SpongeBob is wearing his regular clothes in bed, while in other episodes, he wears his underwear to bed.
  • Pencils, in reality, do not sink. They float.
  • At the start of the episode, the artist is seen making many strokes on the canvas. But when he gets his pencil back at the end of the episode, the canvas is blank.
  • When DoodleBob erases SpongeBob's pants, his hindquarters is seen. But in "Nature Pants", "Hooky" and "Ripped Pants" it's not seen when SpongeBob is naked.
  • When SpongeBob breaks the pencil, it is snapped in half, but after DoodleBob points SpongeBob with it after SpongeBob accidentally throws his half, the pencil was its regular length.
  • When Squidward says "Ouch! SpongeBob your gonna pay for that!" the captions say "Ouch! Your gonna pay for that!"
  • This is the first and only episode that Spongebob say's " Eh, everybody's a critic." Squidward says that kind of stuff.
