steal away from him. SpongeBob did not like that. When Lord Poltergeist saw Mr. Krabs, Squidward, and Patrick trying to steal his money he said "stop right there." But they ignore him by running away, although he catches them in his "void", where they are forced to suffer eternal torment. Krabs' torment was an outhouse that cost one doubloon to use, Patrick's torment was being unable to eat a donut on his head (which turns out to be worse for the donut), and Squidward's torment, obviously, was SpongeBob. Sandy uses her ghost catching equipment to bring everyone out of the void. Soon, SpongeBob finds out that Lord Poltergeist's gold that Mr. Krabs wanted actually belonged to the Flying Dutchman. When the Dutchman found Poltergeist, he claims that he was searching the seas for the Dutchman to give him his treasure back. But this was a diversion for Poltergeist and the others to escape in the haunted house boat. However, the engine room broke down and the boat crashed. The Dutchman then turns himself into a giant bomb and blows everyone into the void. At the end of the episode, Poltergeist was seen greeting customers in the Krusty Krab, which was somehow brought into the void (either it was possibly caught in the Dutchman's explosion too, or it was a different version that was already in the void).
Lord Poltergeist has a blue glow around him, while sporting a tattered naval hat and matching coat. He has a brown beard and staring green eyes.
- While some say the voice of Lord Poltergeist is Tim Curry, the actual voice of Lord Poltergeist turned out to be Chris Elliot.
