The Top Ten

Pizza 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!
[Newest]I love this episode so much! I put it on my ipod I think the creators of SpongeBob are losing ideas for new episodes. I still like them but they should make them more like they used to but the krusty krab pizza song steals the show in this episode!

More comments about Pizza Delivery

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!
This episode is so awesome "squidward is going to the future, past, and unknown universe". Who would think of this, Derek Drymon thought of it, and it is humorous.
[Newest]Incredible, just one thing. This is too creepy for 6 year olds. I got nightmares from it in kindergarten.

3Help Wanted
One episode to start them all...
Look Gary, I'm NAKED!
It is the very first episode of spongebob and it is awseome

The F.U. N Song, Do I have to say anymore?
F is for Fire that burns down the whole town.
U is for Uranium... Bombs!
N is for No Survivors when you...


F is for friends who do stuff together
U is for you and me
N is for anywhere anytime at all down here in the deep blue sea
More comments about F.U.N.

The episode I grew up with loving the most.


I love the beginning of this episode (When they are running) This episode is great.
"Firmly grasp it in your hand"!


6Naughty Nautical Neighbors
Personally, I think n3 (My nickname since all 3 words all start with N) is extremely underrated compared to the other season 1 episode.
Ripped pants is also an underrated episode.
Squidward likes Patrick more than Spongebob.


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

7The 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!
They don't air this often, I honestly don't know why. It's a good episode with good moments.
This should be in the top 3

8Valentine's Day
A lot of memorable lines. My personal favorite line in this episode is "Heart on stick must die. "
This episode is a Great One


9Ripped Pants
This should be higher on the polls!
My favorite thing about this episode is the song


See, I got ripped pants!


How is this one not in the top 3?
It is so funny.
Time to bring it around town, bring it around town.


The Contenders

11Tea at the Treedome
It was so funny


12Sleepy Time
Hilarity at its best.

13Opposite 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
Happy opposite day Squidward, we hate you.
Let me show you how much I hate you.

The part when SpongeBob suds gets worse by Patrick and Patrick gets his painful treatment in the end
Don't touch me I'm sterl
Then the doctor pulls out his stephascope there is no tool more sinister.


Funniest episode ever. Spongebob and Patrick say bad things about Texas to get Sandy to follow them to her suprise party. Epic Episode!
It reminds me of the Upon a Burning Body song Texas Blood Money


What's so great about dumb old Texas?

16Home Sweet Pineapple

17Neptune's Spatula

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

19Karate Choppers

20Rock Bottom
Most underrated spongebob episode ever. Also one of the best.
Only 20th place? This was a masterpiece! Should be in the top 3.


This is my favorite episode

21Jellyfish Jam

22Squidward the Unfriendly Ghost
Come on guys! This one's amazing! "One watermelon fresh from the manure field your spookiness" Maybe not a memorable one it terms of moments but all thrown together easily makes it the best of the season!

23Employee of the Month

24Sandy's Rocket
Spongebob: "Patrick do you know what this is? "
Patrick: "Stinky? "
Spongebob: "No it's an egg sack! Let's look at the embryo. "
Both: "Twins. "
Excuse me but this is a great episode, should be at least in the top 10. What's wrong with it? It's hilarious and so cool. I'm really mad right now.
This is the first episode I've seen. I was about six. I am now 18 and I remember watching it.

25Hall Monitor
This is an iconic episode it had me laughing throughout the entire episode

Their are my car keys.


27Scaredy Pants

28I Was a Teenage Gary
This episode is awesome and creepy!

29Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy

Mr Krabs: "YOW! Mother of Pearl Fire on the Poop-Deck! " SpongeBob & Patrick: "Ah mother of pearl fire on the poop-deck." That part was so hilarious. This is one of my favorite episodes.
Hooky is hilarious how is it not in the top 10



31The Chaperone

32MuscleBob BuffPants

33Reef Blower
This episode might be short, might not have dialogue but the animation can sure tell a story.
SpongeBob trying to get the shell off, Squidward tossed the shell, the story can be easily told by animation.
But it still would be better with dialogue.
Not my favorite, but I like it.


34Culture Shock
Why is this not higher up! The end scene was hilarious!

35Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II
Awesome episode, but underrated. Best MM&BB episode. Love spongebob's line "I found it and it's the special dance mix" hilarious

36Boating School
I remember this episode from when I was 6 years old
I added this because it is a great episode

37Walking Small

38Squeaky Boots

39Nature Pants
This episode should be ranked higher. Not only that but this aired 2 years before 9/11. I love this one

40Fools in April

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