Re: Why is The Krusty Krab spelt with a K?? Add answer
This is possibly due to comic references, and the creators wanted to add a comedic spin of the original word "crusty". However, the word "crusty" would have also sounded disgusting in the eyes of the viewers, which is possibly another reason why the "Krusty Krab" has K's in it. In addition, "Krab" is also a possible comedic reference, and is the name of Mr. Krabs, the owner.
