    I know this is two years old and I will never be talked about. But I remembered an episode when we see Crabs and Plankton becoming friends in their younger years explaining the rival between them. They try to own a restaurant but the food was terrible. After Plankton gets mad and slams the door. We see the shelf break and collective of ingredients fall into the patch of the food. Crabs tastes the food and it instantly tasted good.

    Actually, i do remember a certain episode when i was a kid. it was about the foundations of the Krusty Krab, so yea ima sum it up real quick. so plankton and Mr Krabs where friends back then trying to make a business together and yea i think Mr krabs made the formula (idk if plankton helped him or not, my memory isn't that good) so basically, plankton and Eugene somewhere in the mid of the episode have a fight and plankton leaves him (there was a scene where they both played tug of war with the formula to see who gets it), and plankton gets the final ingredient whilst Eugene gets the almost full version. so yea all it said about that formula is, and i quote ".... and a pinch of chum". and then plankton goes forth to experiment different formulas and adding chum to them, but none of them worked. and that's why plankton named his restaurant The Chum Bucket.

    The secret ingredient is a crab patty because the creator of sponge bob was a marine biologist and wanted to give a hint of their past. Don’t say that it is barbaric because crabs are cannibals. Hence the name, “Crabby Patty.”

    Sorry to burst the bubble Matt but in the episode where the talk about plankton and Mr krabs past and when 0they were kids mr krabs drops a whole bunch of different no named ingredients in patty batter showing that to be the ingredients inless they lied about the story about mr krabs and plankton which is the only way this is a marketing scam

    Why you need "skillshare", when you can learn anything you want to learn, for free on MNmore? I've learned a lot of how to fold origami-figures and play many solos on my electric guitar, without spending even one dollar! I ask myself the same question everytime, I see an ad from this service: "Why you'll need 'skillshare', when you can get your education completely free on MNmore?'" I know, I repeated myself here, but I just don't get it, honestly. By the way: I really improved my english, learned how to fold origami-figures and to play some solos on my electric-guitar, by watching MNmore-videos. This is my honest thoughts about this subject.

    Spongebob not only lost Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of this iconic cartoon-series, but also Eberhard Prüter, the german voice of Squidward Tentacles as well. Eberhard Prüter fitted Squidward just perfectly. It is a huge loss for the german voice acting-department. If you watch the older episodes of Spongebob Squarepants in german, you will agree with me.

    You should redo this Theory because I got you one better that the patty is made out of chum . Look in the past if you look at the patty meat It looks like chum even how the kids react makes it feel like it's chum just add a little bit of spices and BOOM a patty mr.krabs even says in a episode that he has a likeing for chum and mr.krabs either stole chum to make into patty's or he made chum and made the patty's he was a chef he could do this and it could tie into your cannibalism week since chum has eyeballs in it and more human or fish parts.

    I thought the secret ingredient was sponge. Because a spoiled krabby patty looks like a sponge, and the fact that we don't see any other sponges besides SpongeBob and his family is because Mr krabs spared them thus the reason why spongebob is working there for little to no paycheck

    Thought it was crab because 1 There is no crabs 2 ‘ugine’ is the only crab 3 he doesn’t want plankton to have it so crabs won’t die 3its in the patty so not even spongebob knows because he just gets the patty So yea it’s most likely a crab :D (I’m late to reply I know-)

    there was a tiktok that i saw ( on a youtube video) that said the formula is CRABS. The Krusty Krab is shaped like a crab trap and there are no other crabs in bikini bottom. In real life this is probably real delicious P: but in spongebob, it is HORRIFYING CANIBALISM.

    Ahem... Let me work my magic of plagiarism (Jk paraphrasing) The secret ingredient (if there is one) is most likely... Crabs. Most of the items on the menu have what they have in them in the name. And Mr. Krabs is the only crab in town, too. He doesn't want any competition, and he can get some moneyz out of it too. This is someone else's theory, not sure who

    I think the patty formula is crab meat because the Krusty Krab is a crab trap and Mr.Krabs and his mom are the only crabs ever shown on Spongebob so therefore Mr.krabs is a cannibal

    Dude frequency analysis isn't useful for advanced ciphers. Advanced encryptions could have an "e" become a different letter each time it is used. So any letter at any time could be representing any other character, including itself. The frequency analysis won't help you out there. Shift ciphers (Caesar Cipher), aren't used anymore for anything. Let alone for a top secret krabby formula.
