"Help Wanted" is the pilot episode of the series. In this episode, SpongeBob attempts to get hired by Mr. Krabs for a job at the Krusty Krab.
The episode starts with SpongeBob waking up and saying "Todays the big day Gary!" He then doubts for a second but Patrick convinces SpongeBob that the Krusty Krab should hire him, so Squidward gets worried as there's a help wanted sign. Mr. Krabs tells him to get a Hydrodinamic Spatula with enahncements and turbo drive. SpongeBob goes the the store to get the spatula, with Krabs and Squidward laughing over fooling him. Then, lots of anchovies storm in to eat, and Mr. Krabs and Squidward are wanting help, as the anchovies are trashing the place.
SpongeBob comes back from the Bargin' Mart and feeds the hungry Anchovies with the Super Spautla. Mr. Krabs then hires SpongeBob. Patrick then comes in and asks for a Krabby Patty. SpongeBob then flies into the kitchen and delivers a blow of patties onto Patrick, while Squidward says, "Mr. Krabs, look at your new employee!"
