SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star are obsessed with their favorite superheroes, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, who have actually retired. They stay at the Shady Shoals retirement home, which is in Bikini Bottom. They actually find this out from Squidward. When SpongeBob and Patrick pretend that Squidward is an enemy of their's (SpongeBob and Patrick are dressed up as Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy), Squidward gets fed up and tells them that they are actually in the retirement home that's close by. SpongeBob and Patrick are determined to convince Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy to come out of retirement and continue to fight crime like they used to. They however find SpongeBob and Patrick to be extremely annoying. They go through a whole bunch of things, like for example, SpongeBob pretends that Patrick (who is also pretending) robbed him, hoping that Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy would come to his rescue. But instead, they are just angry, and they actually attack SpongeBob and Patrick using their superpowers. One of their powers summons everyone in Shady Shoals, who are known as the "creatures of the deep" who used to help Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. Together they all form a very angry mob and they pick SpongeBob and Patrick up. The two think that the mob thinks they are heroes and they don't even mind. In the end, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy come out of retirement, but they still stay at Shady Shoals. So SpongeBob and Patrick actually get what they wanted.
