Top Ten Spongebob Squarepants Season 1 Episodes

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

The Top Ten

1 Pizza Delivery 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!

This episode is the band geeks of season 1!
Wait no even that would be a understatement to such greatness

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!

Am I the only one who thinks this episode is better than Pizza Delivery?

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

This was literally the first SpongeBob episode ever

The first of the best, and my most memorable episode out of the entire SpongeBob SquarePants series. It showed the start of SpongeBob's life as a fry cook, the beginning of Steven Hillenburgh's greatest creation, and the very first, greatest, most memorable line ever, "I'M READY! "
May this episode live on in our hearts till the end of time.

That is most funniest episode in Spongebob Squarepants (I think)

4 F.U.N. F.U.N.

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

F is for friends who do stuff together, you is for you and me, n Is for any where and anytime at all down here in the deep blue sea!

Now, I'm a weaboo. All I do all day, everyday is watch anime, draw fan art or listen to Hatsune Miku. However, when I see anything about this episode, I get HOOKED with Spongebob (no pun intended). I'll leave it in my Blu-Ray player for months and watch it every night. I have up to Season 7 of SpongeBob on DVD, so I normally work my way through them all. You know what, I might put Spongebob in now!

This or the Ripped Pants episode is my favorite. - Anonymousxcxc

5 Rock Bottom Rock 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

Most overrated spongebob episode considering I had a problem as a kid of getting lost and spongebob getting lost make me mad - Linc

6 Valentine's Day Valentine's Day

A lot of memorable lines. My personal favorite line in this episode is "Heart on stick must die. "

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

My personal favourite SpongeBob episode of all time - happyhappyjoyjoy

This is probabaly one of the few episodes that shows that patrick is a jerk in the forst two seasons. Now it seems that he is a jerk every episode.

7 Ripped Pants Ripped Pants

My favorite thing about this episode is the song - Ajkloth

Best season 1 episode it teaches kids that a joke can only be fun so many times and its song is so catchy and also teaches us that jokes can only be funny so many times like Sandy says Spongebob's song is true

This should be higher on the polls!

When Pizza Delivery came to put this episode down...

8 Jellyfishing Jellyfishing

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.

I do not agree. Woodward's cruelty is taken too far. And is at times painful to watch. SpongeBob and Patrick were also retarded. Other than the bad ass jellyfishing song, the rest is good until Squidward got injured.

Squidward abuse... This is overrated and a Squidward Torture episode. - Goatworlds

9 Texas Texas

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.

This has one of mine favorite quotes from spongebob ever.

10 Opposite Day Opposite 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.

"Happy Opposite Day Squidward, We Hate You! "

12 Suds Suds

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

In this episode, when SpongeBob says one of Patrick's treatments doesn't work, PATRICK TRIES SOMETHING ELSE. In The Splinter, he just gives SpongeBob attitude.

Patrick: The doctor is awful! You have to read old magazines in the waiting room

Seriously, quit it with the creepy pictures!

13 Arrgh!

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

The whole ship is underwater, sir

This episode is very funny, should be in top ten

14 The Paper The 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!

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 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!

I Don't Remember This one so Well - ChiefMudkip

15 Naughty Nautical Neighbors Naughty 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!

My favorite part is when SpongeBob and Patrick kept saying more soda.

"If I had a dollar for every brain that you don't have, I'd have one dollar."

They were under his tongue the whole time. - Anonymousxcxc

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

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!

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

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

Funniest episode in nickelodeon

Wild animals can throw VERY wild parties

This episode is a classic! It should be a lot higher than where it is now.

Remember: Don't let wild animals in your home

I hate tis episode! It is annoying
