The Best Nickelodeon Shows of All Time
« see full list
This show WAS pretty much one of the best shows around and every episode before the Spongebob Movie was more than good. After that and before Atlantis Squarepantis, the episodes were still good, but not as good as before. Between this and Truth or Square, I'm sure the producers ran out of ideas because from there, the episodes were falling downhill and turning mediocre. After 2010, all episodes are just horrible. Let me tell you why: The point was for Patrick to be DUMBER than Spongebob at most times (like the one when he changed heads) but that changed a lot, I mean it. Not only that but the jokes are so cheesy their not funny anymore. They are starting to lack in creativity a lot, but that usually happens to longer-lasting shows. There should be more episodes like where they go to the future or past. I love Spongebob, it made my day every time there was a new episode. Very humorous back then, like "The hash-slinging! The bash-ringing! " Then, "THE HASH SLINGING SLASHER! " Jokes like these from Spongebob still make me laugh today. If you're going to show your kids how much Spongebob changed, show them "Band Geeks", then "A Pal For Gary". Ahh... The golden days...
It has too be a pretty dang good show if it has run for 13 years already with more than 175 episodes with another 50 episodes already ordered through 2015. Generation after generation has grown up on this show. It can almost be called the Simpsons of children's television shows. It has content for kids, teens and adults. Avatar only ran for 3 seasons. Spongebob has already gotten seasons 10 and 11 purchased by Nickeloden. With a movie that grossed $150 million worldwide and a crew that has shown that it won't run out of ideas anytime soon, SpongeBob should without a doubt be number one on this list.
Don't get me wrong, I love Spongebob, but Nickelodeon has done an unforgivable thing to this show. It had its glory days (1999-2005) and it should have ended there. Spongebob is dead, whether you admit it or not. They used to have the best plots and witty humor, but now this is just for little kids 10 and under. Their artwork has gotten pretty gross. For example, when Spongebob drops the couch on Squidwards toenail and it gets ripped off with disgusting detail. It just has flat potty humor now, and it's getting ridiculous. I think Spongebob is on its last legs, and it should have gone out on a high note right after The Spongebob Movie was made. The show would have been much better remembered for me.
Not to seem too out there but it's been and still is nick's "Flagship" show even with the recent down turn. And has that dumb funny appeal that will stick around for any kid, throughout his life even as other more "creative" shows such as Avatar, fade away in our memories. You just can't escape it it's everywhere and its here to stay. It just has the "sticking" lasting memory that makes it deserve to be the number one show. It is of course the crown for "Best nick show of all time" which should refer to that long lasting impression it will have on all our lives. In short the memories created by this show make it number 1.
People keep on saying how spongebob USED to b the best show in the early 2000s but. I have hope for the future... They can probably make spongebob really funny again right? I agree that a few episodes were a bit.. Well not funny.. But that doesn't mean that all of them will stink from now on.. I was one of the kids that was lucky enough to grow up with spongebob from beginning to end ( I was born in the late 90s) I hope spongebob can live on for many generations to come.
Spongebob is the best show that has ever been on nickelodeon by far. A far second would be Drake and Josh, and third Avatar. I mean really, you don't hear kids saying, "Hey, lets watch some Invader Zim!. You hear them say, " Hey lets watch Spongebob. Spongebob is going to be the most favorite character ever on Nickelodeon, with the second as maybe Ang from Avatar.
Avatar is better than Spongebob? Seriously? I'm not descriminating against Avatar, but I think, (and I insure you many people will agree with me), the ultamate nickelodeon show. Why? He's a talking sponge who has dofus sea star for a best friend, a grumpy squid for a neighbor, a money loving crab for a boss, who nemisis is a plankton, there's even a squeril that lives underwater in a dome with a tree in the middle. The characters make the show as funny as possible. Even if Avatar is popular it's not classic the way Spongebob is.
In my opinion all (or at least most) of the classics were made in the 90s, Examples: Hey Arnold, Invader Zim, Rugrats. I know some people like iCarly, Big Time Rush, and Victorius, but the only non animated show I liked was Drake and Josh. That was also one of my favorites. They don't make good shows like that anymore. Just because they stop making new episodes of a show doesn't mean the have to stop showing it. Even the new Spongebob episodes aren't as good.
I love SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, Sandy and Plankton. I love SpongeBob because of his pineapple house. I love Patrick because of his rock house. I love Squidward because he has a blue house. I love Mr. Krabs because he owns a restraunt. I love Sandy because she's a squirrel. Finnaly, I love Plankton because he's evil. My brother told me this so I decided to writw this.
I think spongebob is the best show ever. The people that hate spongebob suck. I love spongebob.
While the quality of SpongeBob has gone down. It remains a classic among Nick shows, deserving of the #1 spot. Episode's like "Clams", "Bubble Buddy" and the "Alaskan Bullworm" are filled with hilarity and are easily quotable. Characters like Patrick, Squidward, Ms. Puff and all the rest are fun and memorable. No show has had the cultural impact that SpongeBob has (except maybe the Simpsons).
Even though some of the newer episodes aren't so good, they always have their episodes. The top three are the only nick shows that deserve all the glory they're getting, but spongebob definitely deserves to be above avatar. I really like avatar, but It seems like the only episode they really play is sokkas master. Spongebob, on the other hand, has about 3 or 5 episodes playing daily.
Stephen Hillenburg's Spongebob was amazing, but when he left, it all went to complete crap and I stopped watching it. Whenever I see an episode on that is from before 2006, I will always watch it. It used to be a show where both the children ad parents could sit down and have a laugh because there would always be jokes in there that the parents would get but the children wouldn't. When I watch the older episodes nowadays, I am always finding new jokes that I didn't used to get. The characters are now ruined. Patrick used to be the dumb but wise friend, but now he's full-on retarded. In fact, that's what all of the characters have become. Retarded.
Spongebob is the best show in the world and I have been watching it for as long as I can remember. He is the coolest in the world and you can't forget patrick and squidward because they are also super funny. Every episode I have ever seen made meen lauph ma socks off and it is so knarly.
THE GREATEST NICKELODEON SHOW OF ALL TIME IT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR OVER A DECADE I'VE SEEN EVERY EPISODE EVEN THE BAD ONES THAT NICK KEEPS COMING OUT WITH I WISH THEY WOULD JUST SHOW RERUNS OF THE CLASSIC SPONGEBOB EPISODES TO KEEP THE LEGACY GOING BEFORE THESE DUMB NEW EPISODES OF THIS GENERATION RUIN SPONGEBOB FOREVER!
SpongeBob is the best from when I was just 3 I really liked this until now I'm downloading many episodes every show or episodes are so humorous like in the idiot box spongebob and patrick ordered a giant T.V. but they only needed the box and gave the T.V. to squidward imagine that big kind of T.V. was ordered and just gave it to other persons that does not like you?...
SPONGEBOB IS THE BEST AND MOST AWESOMEST SHOW ON EARTH ITS REALLY FUNNY WITH
THE CHARACTERS LIKE PATRICK, SANDY, SQUIDWARD AND EVEN MR. KRABS HE REALLY REALLY REALLDY REALLY. LIKES A WHOLE BUNCH OF MONEY LIKE $10000000000000000
OH YEAH! This is the best T.V. show ever invented. It has great humor and it is way better then the new shows that try too hard to make you laugh because Spongebob is just naturally funny. Some of the old episodes are just so good like the pizza delivery episode. GOOD JOB NICKELODEON
I agree with every thing you said. Sponge bob square pants is by far the best show on nick. It's also. Grat that its good for parents too most shows on nick are spastic and fast like the fairly odd parents and kinda cause ADHD but yes I love sponge bob it is hilarious.
I can't believe Avatar is number one, Spongebob has been one of the most watched and most loved cartoons in the world for over 10 years, it has brought Nickelodeon 8 billion and revenue, and it has stood the test of time to become a staple in most childhoods. Sure the new stuff may not be as good, but the first few seasons were unparalleled.
IT still should be the most watched, its funny and its funny people just watch the new shows because the commercials look funny, but that marvin marvin show GIVE ME A BREAK, get that show on americas weirdest shows a alien got to be kidding me. And spongebob and drake and josh are the best no matter what anybody says. GO SPONGEBOB!
SPONGEBOB IS THE BEST! If not, why do you think it will last until now?
Its the greatest show EVER.
My family and I still watch spongebob everyday, it makes us laugh without fail. It is so entertaining!
Awesome! GO SPONGEBOB!
This is the best show in the history of Nick. He's been out ever since 1999. Most shows on Nick ended after 2-5 years of their showings, but Spongebob has been out for almost 15 years! Do you know why? Because everyone loves him. He's been the Kids Choice Awards winner for best cartoon for 9-11 times! He is clearly the best. He's the crowned king of Nick cartoons.
I sat waiting for the first episode to air in 1999 and have been a dedicated SpongeBob fan ever since. This is by far the best Nickelodeon show of all time because its lasted this long! Everyone loves the sponge. I do agree that some episodes were not as great.. They started changing to fit the mold of other popular shows, even with competition on Cartoon Network. I never give up hope on this show. I think it will getbetter. I just hope they bring back some old humor while they try new things.
This show isn't being cancelled it was just a rumor which is good it's the only 90s show left on Nickelodeon I wasn't born in the 90s but I think a lot of your fans that were would be really mad if you took away the last piece of their childhood this is a part of my childhood too so if you took it off I would just stop watching Nickelodeon because in my opinion it's the only good show on nick today
This show was legendary up until after the movie. Season 4 was pretty good, and the first half of season 5 was alright for the most part but after "Atlantis Squarepantis" the show started to go down hill and I stopped watching it after that. I've watched some season 9 episodes though and it looks like the show is starting to return to it's glory days.
