The Top Ten

Band Geeks
Band Geeks, Secret Box, Idiot Box, Best Day ever, and the camping episode should be at the top.
This deserves to be number one. I'm watching "Pizza Delivery" right as I'm typing this. Haha I love Spongebob and Squidward together!
it was funny when there were singing
[Newest]I love this episode! It's one of the best SpongeBob episodes in my opinion. I like that this, chocolate with nuts, and pizza delivery are the top three. All three of those episodes are great!

2Chocolate with Nuts
Best episode ever even better than number1! Ps who the heck put the "best" day ever on here I hate the music
My favorite part of this episode is when the chocolate fish exclaims CHOCOLATE! And in the end he asks if he could buy all of their chocolate and Patrick is so surprised he dumps all the chocolate bars out of his pants and even poops out a kisses chocolate. This is the part where I crack up. There is one other episode not on the list that I think is hilarious, and it is Krusty Love, which should replace Best Day Ever. In the end of this episode, Spongebob is so mad he curses at his own boss Mr. Krabs in front of Mrs. Puff when she looks at a dictionary and her cheeks turn red and Mr. Krabs's mouth grows wide open.
Funniest episode of spongebob I have ever seen! Though band geeks is great too especially that song at the end... it's amazing and thats probably why its number one because of the song
[Newest]It is the best

3Pizza Delivery
Squid at the end, showing genuine concern for Spongebob "Sponge?... Sponge? "
"who cares about the costumer? "I do". "well I don't" (hurricane stops) 'gasp' Sqiudward. Best line ever next to My Names Not. RICK. How is this not number one? It has more memorable moments than any of the other old episodes. This episode has a classic plot just like camping episode or band geeks. The part where Spongebob runs over Squidward with the boulder was hilarious, and the song is simply priceless. This song is loved by all Spongebob fans, and so is this episode. If your a Spongebob fan that instantly means you've seen and love this episode. My favorite episode of Spongebob will always be this. It should be number 1
This episode is SO funny! I love the part when Spongebob is explaining to Squidward about a movie that he saw about pioneers and when he tries to convince Squidward to eat the coral instead of the the tasty pizza!
[Newest]This episode is simply pure genius "The Krusty Krab Pizza is the pizza for you and me" "Where's my DRINK? " Haha too many quotes to even record.

4The Camping Episode
Best Episode Ever. "WRITE THAT DOWN, WRITE THAT DOWN! " (Patrick draws Tic-Tac-Toe Symbols). Perhaps my favorite line ever.
This should be number one. The Marshmallow shot through Squidwards clarinet and protruded at the back of his head gets me every time. Chew. Chew. Chew. Awesome song to boot.
Most hilarious episode. I'm 25 years old, and every time I see this episode, I totally bust out laughing every time Squidward gets repeatedly mauled by the sea bear! lol

Squidward (after being mauled for the 100th time): What did I do that time?
Spongebob: I don't know... I guess he just doesn't like you!

[Newest]This episode is good but overrated should switch places with pressure

5Graveyard Shift
AND THE WALLS WILL OOZE GREEN SLIME! Oh wait, they always do that.
Number 14 the night shift, is the graveyard shift in a different way. So you may have mixed it up. Wicth makes this list have 60 episodes. Even though its mixed up, it is a great episode and you can check out the top 100 episodes. My top ten are

10, suds

9, Graveyard shift

8, rock Bottem

7, naughty nautical neighbors

6, clams

5, procrastination

4, survival of the idiots

3, pressure

2, jellyfishing

1, RIPPED PANTS( including the song that makes me feel better
This is my favorite episode. This episode is so funny, and the plot is so amazing. SpongeBob SquarePants use to be such a good show, but there was an obvious decrease in the shows quality after the SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. I can't believe how bad the most current episodes are. The episodes clearly don't have the same great storylines that made the show so popular more than a decade ago.
[Newest]My favourite episode is graveyard shift!

2 best lines:

"Where's the leak, ma'am? " and
I like the part where patrick says finland and also the part where squidword gets the pencil drewing hair.
This episode is REALLY funny. We'r watching it right now
[Newest]This episode is also funny

7Krusty Krab Training Video
This episode flat-out lacks a fourth wall, which is something I really love. Also, People Order Our Patties is one of the funniest moments on the show.
The first episode I ever watched, and the real best in my opinion (Sorry Pizza Delivery, Band Geeks, and Wishing You Well)


[Newest]I really don't get why this is on the list. We don't even get to hear the formula!

8Idiot Box
It filled my life with imaginaatioon. (Rainbow)
Even to this day, I have a giant box I play in almost every day. I'm 18 now, and it's mostly used for privacy with my girlfriend, but I do exercise my imagination with it when I can.
I'm watching thins episode as I'm typing "isn't there anything other than boxing".
[Newest]I have more imagination in one tentacle than you two have put together!

Great, now all you need is a box!

The only way out is through the... PERFUME DEPTARTMENT! Great Episode. not number 1 but still a classic
This ship belongs to the Red Barron!

Looking back there was so much great humor in this haha. Do we get business cards? Haha
[Newest]Gas mask in the perfume department. Genius.

I thought this one was hilarious, really cool with a lot of neat scenery. Squidward's even funnier than SpongeBob here!
Squidward: Future! Future! Future! FUTURE! This was one of the lines ever. This episode reminds me how much I miss the old Spongebob. :'(
Best episode ever and first one I've seen. I grew up with spongebob and this has always been my favorite.


[Newest]This is a great episode

The Contenders

11Sailor Mouth
Proof that even SpongeBob has a dirty mouth. And that scene with Mr. Krabs cursing is hilarioius!


This episode cracks me up. My favorite part of it was when they first started swearing in the first place.
If you noticed here, many of the best episodes have memorable humor. Though I have a different sense of humor [thanks to YouTube Poop], many people love this for the cursing. I will nitpick that the humor takes over the story and makes less supportive, but hey, who doesn't love a good laugh?
[Newest]Krabs is A...

Enough said

12Help Wanted
This episode made this show
Spongebob gets hired duh this is a classic
Everything else happened AFTER this episode :3
[Newest]I love the song and the plot altogether!

13Christmas Who?
Santa is comin tonight tonight Santa is coming to night.
Hard to believe that this episode is ranked so low. It should be in the top ten.
Love the song:

It looks like it's gonna be a wonderful holiday,

Not your normal average everyday.

Looks like someone fell my old coral tree,

SpongeBob, Patrick why'd ya do this to me?!

[Newest]It was the first

14Something Smells
Once there was an ugly barnacle he was so ugly that everyone died the end. That didn't help at all! Laugh out loud
I cracked up when Spongbob was like "I'm Ugly and I'm Proud"
Possibly my favorite episode, because of blue fish and The Ugly Barnacle.
[Newest]This is my favorite episode

15Survival of the Idiots
Who are you callin' Pinhead for voting for this? Nobody, because it's so dang funny! There are a couple of funny episodes in Season 4, but the rest of 4 and up are all terrifyingly horrible. Not funny at all.


"Which one a' you is the real Dirty Dan?! " "Uh... I am." Classic Patrick stupidly walking right into getting maimed by hibernation Sandy.


In my opinion my favorite this is my favorite episode. Like Jammer196 said, Who you calling Pinehead?
[Newest]SpongeBob: alright your time is up pinhead. Patrick: who are you calling pinhead. I LAUGH MY PANTS OFF and the way Patrick tries to open the door classic haha

16Ripped Pants
When big Larry came round just to put him down,
Spongebob turned into a clown,
And no girl ever wants to dance,
With the fool who went and,
Ripped his pants

This is by far the best episode, that inspongeaic episode was the worst episode EVER! In fact, none of it is funny, thomas is twenty times better and ed edd n eddy is millions times better. And one thing good about this episode is the song, I loved it, but the new episodes were not the superworst
Absolute Genius. How is this not #1? The ripped pants song is MY CHILDHOOD.
[Newest]The Song is top notch! (Sorry sweet victory, krusty krab pizza and fun)

17Rock Bottom
I LOVE this episode of SpongeBob it's definitely my favorite Patrick left SpongeBob by himself downtown laugh out loud and his expression when he saw they were leaving Bikini Bottom was priceless!
This isn't your everyday darkness, this is advanced darkness.
I'm a mom of three sponge bob-loving kids and I will watch this episode every time!
[Newest]This episode had everyone making the the tongue sound for years!

18Dying for Pie
What the hell is wrong with you all? This episode's my favorite, and it's sad seeing it so low.
My personal favorite! "The boy cries you a sweater of tears... And you kill'em". Too many one liners, just watch it.
This one is a CLASSIC PEOPLE! It has a message to it and it's so sad when SpongeBob says he will die due to the carelessness of a friend. That is so sad my heart feels so heavy whenever I watch that part. Love this one is my favorite HOW IS IT NOT #1?! Needs to be
[Newest]This showed that Squidward truly cared about SpongeBob.

I love this one because (you guys might not agree with me) it shows plankton wants friends more than success even though he did try to steal the krabby party formula, he really wanted a friend more.
How can you not absolutely love the song? Just saying.
F is for f you whoever didn't vote for this! You is for you r the best episode! N is for no other episode is as good besides Gary takes a bath! (: Man why isn't Gary takes a bath on the list?!
[Newest]This episode is great, especially Plankton's version of the fun song.

20The Fry Cook Games
Plankton-"Square, THE SHAPE OF EVIL! " More like the shape of SpongeBob.


4 words explain why this episode is funny. MY NAME NOT RICK!
This is the best episode
