Rated: TV-PG or TV-14 DV
A 19-year old squirrel named Raymond Carlson from Texas is brought down to Bikini Bottom by the request of his best friend, Sandy Cheeks, who agreed to let him move in. Raymond, who likes to smoke, decides to get a job at the broken restaurant. As he joins, he learns about the rivals at the nearby restaurant, The Krusty Krab, with the eviler-than-the-evil-boss, Eugene, the snarky irritating lazy cashier, Squidward, and the worst of them, the irritating, destructive Spongebob. Raymond Carlson suddenly finds himself trying to get the formula, falling in love with the nemesis, and living with the girlfriend in the enemy.
Maxwell's Silver Hammer Makes the Spin-OffEdit
"Welcome to the Chum Bucket" was first announced on August 19, 2012. It was rated around PG-13. The series went through many format changes before settling on a Skodwarde-length format. On September 3, the series premiered, with "Welcome to the Show". The episode did not get much review, and it got cancelled on October 7 after only 1 episode. The Squid (Maxwell's Silver Hammer at the time) cited the cancel being because the episodes had become super hard to make.
JCM Buys (And Returns) the Spin-OffEdit
Less than 24 hours later, JCM bought the rights to the Spin-Off on the xat for 50 doubloons. However, two months later, The Squid bought it for 50 doubloons because JCM couldn't make much out of the show. He had also claimed to have bought it on a whim. Maxwell announces that 13 episodes are being filmed.
