Top Ten Spongebob Squarepants Season 1 Episodes

These are the ten greatest episodes from Spongebob's inaugural season.

The Top TenXW

1Pizza Delivery

The Krusty Krab Pizza for you and... ME! That was the best part! I also loved the part when Spongebob was trying to get Squidward to eat the coral instead of the pizza. :) It was also really sweet when you kinda got to see a different side of Squidward when defended/comforted Spongebob after the angry customer hurt his feelings. Favorite episode!

This is the most epic SpongeBob episode to ever set foot on the planet. It probably has the most memorable moments out of any of the SpongeBob episodes. One of my favorite parts was when Squidward said he didn't care about the costumer and the hurricane stopped and SpongeBob was like "HUGGH SQUIDWARD" best line ever. And it had the Krusty Krab Pizza song, which will be a song that will live as a legend forever.

This has got to be the best Spongebob episode from the first season. I have never met anyone who does not put this as there favorite episode from the first season. It sometimes ends up their favorite of all seasons. Every time I carry a pizza box I sing the krusty krab pizza song. Spongebob and squidward at their best describes this episode!

My favorite moment was the end, where Squidward smashes the Pizza in the customers face! Truly a fantastic episode! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

According to Laura and the rest of my family except for me, they think that this is a TERRIBLE episode. However, I LOVE this episode!

My favorite part is when Squidward reacts to the "FUTURE! FUTURE! " Everyone else in my family hates that part. The "Alone" quote makes Sean sad. I like that part, too.

This episode really has an interesting plot. It kept me drawn in the entire episode and there is a couple parts where I laughed so this episode is probably one of the best along with the top 2 (Help Wanted and Pizza Delivery)

Love this episode so much! FUTURE!

Even better than Pizza Delivery and Help Wanted! - Goatworlds

3Help Wanted

One episode to start them all...

PLEASE have this one be at least number 2 because not only being a pilot episode but being the episode that started it all and it will be the second best season 1 episode, also all of the main characters appear (except for sandy). And let's not forget about tiny tims song livin in the sunlight, lovin in the moon light

Look Gary, I'm NAKED!

The F.U. N Song, Do I have to say anymore?

Funniest episode ever. Spongebob and Patrick say bad things about Texas to get Sandy to follow them to her suprise party. Epic Episode!

I like Pizza Delivery more but Texas needs to be higher! - Garythesnail

Best of season 1. Memorable scenes, great quotes.

Patrick, your genius is showing!

Towards the end, this episode scared me but I got use to it

I defy you heart man! This needs more attention

The episode I grew up with loving the most. - mholland1997

I love the beginning of this episode (When they are running) This episode is great.

"Firmly grasp it in your hand"! - Oliversalinas500

8Ripped Pants

This should be higher on the polls!

My favorite thing about this episode is the song - Ajkloth

See, I got ripped pants! - funnyuser

Most people like this one. To be honest, I don't. It's boring. It's unfunny. And it does the same thing over and over again! - lizard302

9Rock Bottom

Most underrated spongebob episode ever. Also one of the best.

This episode should at least be number 3. This is such an iconic place and episode! It is REALLY FUNNY and REALLY GOOD!

Only 20th place? This was a masterpiece! Should be in the top 10. - Garythesnail

I like this one - NESSquid

10The Paper

On my top 10 most underrated spongebob episodes, THIS IS NUMBER 1! This also one of my favorite episodes but is only shown once being the most every single year!

The part where SpongeBob plays the paper like a clarinet is my favorite part! I play the clarinet and got criticized for it by my peers. They would often say "You sound like Squidward! " or "Why would you pick such a horrible instrument? " Honestly, this episode showed me that it's not a terrible instrument, it only sucks when Squidward plays it! Thanks SpongeBob and Mr. Paper!

This is my all-time favorite episode. It is hilarious what SpongeBob can do compared to what Squidward can do. Squidward has no imagination! - xMagnoblade

The Contenders

11Opposite Day

This episode should be a lot higher! It's a classic!

I'm Squidward I'm Squidward Squidward Squidward I'm Squidward I'm Squidward Squidward Squidward

I can't explain it its such a good episode and this should be replacing the help wanted episode.

Good episode bad ending

12Naughty Nautical Neighbors

This episode is funny, especially when SpongeBob and Patrick were getting verbal jabs at each other, thinking that they are doing this to each other.

Hey patrick, I heard there was a job opening at the pet shop, as some NEWSPAPER!

Squidward likes Patrick more than Spongebob. - 201002579

13Tea at the Treedome

It was so funny - AlexL

WATER! Pinky up, no pinky down! - lizard302


How come it isn't in the top 10? It's a classic, and it introduces SpongeBob's and Patrick's love of bubble-blowing, which will become a big part of many later episodes. Plus I love the episode, the concept and the 'bring it around town' part.

Nick is not helping the people see the greatness in this episode, the last airing was over a year ago!

How is this one not in the top 3?
It is so funny.

Time to bring it around town, bring it around town. - Connor360

I really love this one, sad that no one talks about it

The part when SpongeBob suds gets worse by Patrick and Patrick gets his painful treatment in the end

Then the doctor pulls out his stephascope there is no tool more sinister. - Connor360

Hilarity at its best.


This is a really memorable episode and really funny. This episode should be number 2.

Possibly the most underrated episode in the season! This is top 15 material

18Employee of the Month

Most underrated SpongeBob episode ever

Took me a long time to realize how great this episode is. Season 1 beats Season 2.


In my opinion this episode should be tied with the worst in the season along with "I Was A Teenage Gary". Everything was dull, and I was surprised that they failed at a simple plot in pre-season. Of course this is just my opinion

Their are my car keys. - TheTopSheep


I'll settle for some fries!

Great episode, plus first appearance of Plankton. One of my favourites and favourite from season 1!
