SpongeBob is walking down a sidewalk on his way to work when suddenly he hears crying. He looks down an alley and Plankton was sitting there crying. Plankton then says that he was crying because one of his inventions backfired again. SpongeBob then asked what the device was. Plankton said it was a doomsday device. However, it did nothing but spark and fall apart. SpongeBob suggested hiring a friend to fix it so Plankton looked in the phone book and found Man Ray. But it was under "fiends" instead of "friends". But Plankton didn't care, so he met Man Ray, and explained the plan. They then went to the Krusty Krab and demanded the Secret formula.? Man Ray said that he thought it was a formula for world domination, but Plankton explained that if you control the fast food chain, you can control the world. Plankton then has Man Ray try a Krabby Patty to prove it, but Man Ray became addicted to them and demands more and more without letting Plankton eat a single one. Meanwhile, SpongeBob tried to get Mermaid Man, and Barnacle Boy for help, but fails many times. He finally got to them and tells them but they told him they can't, leaving SpongeBob to be his own hero. SpongeBob then came back to work to assist the tired Squidward and to "be his own hero". He made many more Krabby Patties, in which, Man Ray got fat from. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy then came and arrested him thus leaving Plankton to pay the bill for the Krabby Patties.
At the end, In Loving Memory of Ernest Borgnine was credited.
- The episode's name could be a parody from the old Toon Disney television show "Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!"

- Running Gags: SpongeBob failing in getting to Mermaid Man, and Man Ray eating Krabby Patties.
- Plankton having to pay for the Krabby Patties is similar to Mr. Krabs paying for the destroyed bank (which SpongeBob and Patrick destroyed) in The Great Patty Caper.

- This is the first appearance of Mermaid Man after Ernest Borgnine's death, however he was credited and voice him meaning this episode was made before his death.

- This is the 3rd time Canned Bread makes an appearance. The first time was Squidville, the second was Atlantis SquarePantis.
- This is the fourth episode to show Squidward can successfully make Krabby Patties. The first was in Bubble Buddy, second was in Breath of Fresh Squidward, and the third was in The Good Krabby Name.
- This is one of few Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy related episodes where Patrick doesn't appear in.
- The light used to call Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy is a parody of the light used to call Batman and Robin.
