Top Ten Best Episodes of Spongebob Squarepants Season 6


The Top Ten

1 Sand Castles In the Sand

This episode is not only the best Season 6 episodes, it's one of my favorite SpongeBob episodes ever. The fact that the same group that made Atlantis SquarePantis made this shows that these new writers can make great episodes if they try. Is there hope for the show? Most say no, but this episode gives me a tiny sliver of hope. The episode really uses animation to its advantage, with epic action and an advanced storyline for a new SpongeBob episode. The fact that this was made in the same season as Toy Store of Doom is odd, as this episode is TSoD done well. Writers, take notes from this episode, I speak for many people when I say this.

Trying to pick the best episode of SpongeBob season six is like trying to pick your favorite 2chainz song. Luckily there was a decently enjoyable episode that came out this season (even though almost every other episode of S6 was terrible) that had real action, a good plotline, and jokes that DIDN'T make me want to puke.

Wow One Question How Did This Come Out Season 6 This Seems Way More Like Something You'd Find In Seasons 1 - 3 The Plot Is Simple Just Like SpongeBob Episode Should But What They Do With It Is Just Amazing First Of Next To SB129 This Is Probably One Of The Most Creative Episodes Of SpongeBob Ever I Love All That The Writers Came Up With It Also Is one Of The Only Episodes That Does Gross Out Right Sheer I Didn't Laugh But It Was Decent And Similar To Enchanted Tiki Dreams It Seems Like At Begging It's Going To Be A Really Annoying Episode But Once We Get To The Third Acted All Of That Annoyance Feels Worth It.

Am I the only person who kinda likes season 6? - reed2009

2 House Fancy House Fancy

I can get through the whole toenail scene just because we see Squidward won one last time.

We can put aside the third-grossest scene in SpongeBob history because Squidward finally beats Squilliam again.

This episode is the reverse The Splinter. The Splinter is full of gross-out, with shoehorned Squidward Torture. This episode is full of Squidward Torture, with shoehorned gross-out. Both have one thing in common: If you don't care about gross-out, both of these episodes are boring.

Only toenail scene that I disliked from this episode but the rest of this episode isn't that bad.

3 Suction Cup Symphony

Best from 6 in my opinion! The music Squidward composes is great and even though SpongeBob and Patrick are annoying as hell they become good at the end! Very funny!

This episode PROVES that the new writers do have potential to revive SpongeBob's going downhill.

This episode is great! Its hilarious, has a good story, and squidward actually wins in the end! - islandersfan91

This is my personal favorite post-movie Spongebob episode. It’s also on #2 of my favorites of all time. I can honestly compare it with Band Geeks because it involves music and a happy ending for Squidward. There’s also really funny and good jokes throughout. 9.5/10

4 Not Normal

5 No Hat for Pat

The starfish gets a krusty krab hat and he can only fall onto the floor when he has the krusty krab hat on his head. Ha, Ha very funny episode. - Dreamformusic

Everyone here doesn't understand this episode. They think that it's supposed to be funny that Patrick is being tortured but it's not supposed to be, it's supposed to make you sympathetic for the character

True, and it works perfectly. I sympathize with Patrick (and Spongebob) throughout the entire episode! - Svampbob164

This episode was horrible. Heh, because mutilating yourself is funny. I honestly don't see why you guys like the episode. The gag in this episode gets old very quickly and is not funny, the hypocrisy of the townspeople was completely unfunny, and to top it all off, they made Krabs completely unlikeable. But compared to episodes like One Coarse Meal, this is one of his least bad schemes in the post-movie era.

This episode was hilarious

6 Krabby Road

This episode was defiantly not bad for a season 6 episode

This Was Pretty Good For Season 6 - ChiefMudkip

Has a crazy bus reference

The best season 6 episode

7 To Squarepants or not to Squarepants

This episode was boring!

This episode was pretty good...

This episode was stupid.

This episode was subpar

8 Single Cell Anniversary

This has decent humor. Like the part when Plankton calls SpongeBob a porous kitchen utensil. And when Karen's mother says:she could have married an ATM or someone with money!

This one is my favorite season 6 episode

Oh my karen oh my karen pretty funny

I like the song but honestly other than that this episode is boring and the fact that Plankton's only doing it for the formula ruins it. I think its an ok episode.

9 OverBooked

This is the best season 6 episode! It's so funny, and the concept is really cool, how SpongeBob has to be in three places at once. The ending is amazing, how sands invention could make SpongeBob at three places at once, This episode is really funny and should definitely be higher

In this season, it's hard to decide. All the good episodes here are GREAT, but in my opinion this is the best. It's great when Patrick asks Spongebob why is his clothes invisible. This episode is hilarious and should be #1.

I Find It Actually Kinda Relatable, It's Interesting - ChiefMudkip

I don't understand how House Fancy, Suction Cup Symphony, To Squarepants or not to Squarepants and Single Cell Anniversary are above this one. Although I think this is the best S6 episode, I can understand why are the rest of the episodes above this one actually above this one. Also, I think Krusty Krushers, Slumber Party, Chum Bucket Supreme, Grandpappy the Pirate and Komputer Overload should be higher.

10 The Krusty Krushers

This episode should be #1!

The Contenders

11 The Slumber Party

It's really funny one of my Top 20 SpongeBob episodes probably 17th or something. I should make a List.

This episode is my second favorite

I loved this episode. - Powerfulgirl10

I agree with PieGuy, it is a great episode.

12 Chum Bucket Supreme

Patrick is really funny in this episode he is acting like in most pre movie spongebob

Patrick: Them words make my head sad Patrick's head: I do not get it Patrick : I don't get it either

Krabby patties are fum

CHUM IS FUM - nonamegame

13 Chum Caverns

This episode is amazing in my opinion. The caverns are beautiful (even though it's a cartoon) and I think planktons new restaurant and gift shop are really cool, I would want to go there if they didn't serve chum!

I like this episode. Great plot! This is another episode when Plankton doesn't just focus on the secret formula.

Why the (dolphin noise) is choir boys higher than this

I guess three writers did proved themselves to be as good writers but other episodes are worse but Chum Caverns is a beautiful episode with no black comedy in it (besides One Course Meal, Pal For Gary, etc. also have dark humor).

This prove that these writers like Zeus,Casey, and Richard are innocent than guilty to make more good plots than bad plots guys.

14 A Life In a Day

The underrated episodes get paired with underhated sister episodes, don't you agree?

Good action.


15 SpongeBob SquarePants vs. The Big One

I thought season 6 is the best in my opinion and this episode should've been at the top of this list because Johnny Depp is awesome as JKL!

Talk about that reference to the hoaxed doomsday prophecy.

16 Toy Store Of Doom

Actually, I found this episode stupid. The first half of the episode was pretty much filler showing Spongebob and Patrick's immatureness, and when the store closed (aka the second half), the humor isn't that good. I will respect that people like it, but it doesn't have any of the memorable humor like what was in Prehibernation Week and The Krusty Krab Training Video.

Some of these episodes I can handle. I mean, new SpongeBob isn't so bad. But One Coarse Meal is bad. But it's told a story. A Pal for Gary would not be on my top ten though because Gary is not my favorite character. But season 7 is the worst but has my favorite episode, SpongeBob's Last Stand.

One of the best, especially hilarious when the dad tackles his son to the ground and walks off peeved. - Mushroom99

Should be higher - Gangem

17 Spongicus

I liked the title card soundtrack. This episode is not bad.

Second best episode of season 6 next to Sandcastles in the sand

This episode is alright, but nothing really happens, it's just SB and Patrick running away from a sea lion at one point. Also, I don't like the end, and it feels like they needed to fill up the run time.

Pretty Good

18 Sun Bleached


I liked this episode, very underrated

This episode is kinda controversial

It promotes people to get skin cancer.
Not a good message for kids - YoshiApple

I was a kid when I watched it and I never went to a tanning machine. I'm still not interested.

19 Grandpappy the Pirate

I love this episode. It's one of my favorites from season 6.

Very Funny, an Good Ending

I love the pirate boat

This episode is ok

20 Komputer Overload

Well, Not Bad, Just Kinda Filler - ChiefMudkip

Very nice plot, very funny, & the ending was cute. Just wish it didn't make plankton look so dependent & stupid.

Why is this one so low? Not to mention that House Fancy (Scumbob), Suction Cup Symphony (Meh), To Squarepants or not to Squarepants (Scumbob), Single Cell Anniversary (Meh), Chum Caverns (Meh), A Life in a Day (Meh), Spongebob Squarepants vs. the Big One (Scumbob), Toy Store of Doom (Scumbob), Spongicus (Meh) and Sun Bleached (i can't decide is it Meh or Scumbob, it would be meh because I don't find it either very boring or very frustrating, but Scumbob because it promotes tanning beds, which cause cancer) are higher than this one. I absolutely LOVE this episode. It is very funny, and Plankton actually apologizes to Karen at the end. P.S. Sand Castles in the Sand is VERY overrated. VERY overrated. This episode is the best in the season in my opinion.

21 The Krabby Kronicle

I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I really loved this episode (minus the ending). I'm not sure why, though. Everything just works in that episode. It's just so...good. It's also one of the last episodes before the dark ages began (in my humble opinion, the dark ages began after the "SpongeBob vs The Big One" special).

Actually no. This proves Mr. Krabs cares about money more than life and would ruin others lives just to be rich. It flanderized him further. - Puga

This episode was torture. - Powerfulgirl10

Mr. Krabs Ruins Lives! Yeaahh - ChiefMudkip

22 Nautical Novice

Just for the writers to screw our expectations over Spongebob finally getting his license, but he doesn't, same as Bumper to Bumper.

Should be in the top ten. Hilarious episode. Just had a bad ending. - Alien51

Favorite episode on season 6

23 Giant Squidward

Great episode! I love it when SpongeBob and patrick are kind enough to make squidward a clarinet for him! It made him happy.

This was a Squidward Torture Porn, and there were kids SLEEPING UNDER SQUIDWARD'S TOENAILS! - Goatworlds

Even though this was a Squidward Torture Porn, it was just okay. Still wasn't good though. - Powerfulgirl10

That is one of the worsest SpongeBob Square Pants episode I've ever watched. Discusting!

Are you kidding me this epiosiode and the thing are awful they practaicly ruin squidwards life also cephlopod lodge is also like this

24 Gone

It was well made and funny, and had a reason why SpongeBob was talking to inanimate objects (i'm talking to you, to love a patty). This was a solid episode, aside from the ending. I would've made SpongeBob wake up from a dream instead, because even if that would be cliche, it would be less cruel to SpongeBob. - wolfythefree

It was a good episode besides the ending. The ending was mean spirited. I mean everyone left because of no spongebob day. Even patrick went. What is wrong with the writers - YoshiApple

Am I one of the few that liked Gone besides the ending? - Turkeyasylum

I actually like this episode. I especially like the build-up as Spongebob realises no-one is in Bikini Bottom. - Rocko

This Episode Is Really Underrated And Creative Should Be In Top 10... - Ardan

26 No Nose Knows

I actually thought the funeral for Patrick's nose was really disturbing. It was a very awkward episode, with a stupid plot. I would have this switch with Gone. Don't judge me because I liked Gone, please! - Turkeyasylum

I thought this one was kind of gross and overdone.

I thought this one was hilarious

Its an okay episode, its watchable but the funeral was creeoy - poopmckenzie

27 Truth or Square

This episode would be so much better without the patchy scenes. The patchy scenes were boring and long. They just ruined the episode with patchy. The patchy scenes were longer than the cartoon. The cartoon part was pretty good but the patchy parts are horrible.

Oh sweet sponge believe it or not this shares my favourite episode with atlantis squarepantis! I don't really remember the patchy scenes though... I don't remember any of them so I'm sure all I remember are the good scenes.Still I can't say this episode is bad...Why do some people say how this episode is their least favourite of season 6 anyways? I don't really see why they say it EXCEPT for the patchy scenes.I know they must be bad because of all the negative reviews done on them.

WORST EPISODE come on people this? - awesome4567

I actually really like truth or square

28 Choir Boys

Why is Choir Boys doing on here?

This episode is garbage. The only reason it's this high on the list is because the people expressing their hate for it are being forced to vote when doing so, including me.

This was Squidward's worst torture episode.

This is easily my least favorite episode in the whole series.

29 Plankton's Regular

Worst episode of SpongeBob

This episode is very meh for me.

All this episode do is show that mr.krabs is the real antagonist of the show. One costumer he could not let plankin have. Mr.krabs is a major dick.

30 Gullible Pants

Boring and Uninspired - ChiefMudkip

I liked this episode a little

31 Penny Foolish

I completely agree with sketchysteve!

FUNNY - Alien51

32 Cephalopod Lodge

I actually like this episode. Even though this episode has a lot of Squidward torture, I think there are things that can redeem it. I thought the Cephalopod Lodge was cool, so we're the Feather Friends and I thought the sock thing was funny. Plus, when I was little, before I knew Squidward was tortured for no reason, I loved this episode. I love it, it's cool and the sock is funny, and it reminds of when I was little

I hate how squidward got kicked out of the lodge, but I guess the humor makes it up. - poopmckenzie

This is in my opinion is the worst episode of all time spongebob because spongebob and Patrick are the worst in this. First they get him kicked out of the lodge, then they KIDNAP him, sting his tongue with a jellyfish, then they’re so dumb to realize that you don’t use a sock as a hiding spot

33 Shell Shocked
34 Pet or Pests

This episode was gross, The worms were creepy and disgusting.

How is this so high? This should be 1 worst

35 The Card

Whoever put this on here has no idea how stupid Patrick is today.

The reason it was on here was because it was a season 6 episode. - errrr

Please don''t murder me, but I love this episode. I think it had good jokes. I do understand why this episode gets so much criticism.

What the hell? Patrick was a TOTAL PRICK in this episode! Who would walk into a pot of fire, set a rare card on fire, and ruin the card when he actually knew his BEST FRIEND* was watching!?

*Not really. He pretty much hates him.

36 Pineapple Fever

This episode was actually pretty good. SpongeBob and Patrick mangle ordinary games to the point that Squidward creates his own, and THAT game causes them to turn into animals! Weird but crazy and cool!

I like this episode! When there's a storm out I like to do those kinds of things, like play board games, watch T.V. and drink hot cocoa. I think it's a great episode! One of the best of season 6, in my opinion, aside from the really long gag about sponge bob telling Squidward what they could do during the storm.

This is probably the most underrated episode ever.

Straight-forward, Pineapple Fever is hilarious. Timeless Squidward reactions/faces. Classic Spongebob type jokes. A whole lot of everything in a couple of minutes, but it still feels like it all fits perfectly. Definitely one of my favorites, and it’s definitely underrated.

37 Slide Whistle Stooges

It was a bad episode because Squidward tortured himself.

So far it's my tenth best episode so stop calling it a bad episode for good sake

You spelled this wrong.

38 Patty Caper

This episode needs to be higher up on the list. Patty Caper is one of my favorite season 6 episodes, even if it does have its flaws. Besides, Krabs does get his comeuppance in the end.

39 Grooming Gary

Spongebob Doesn't Realize His Pet Doesn't Want Costumes, Really? - ChiefMudkip

40 Porous Pockets

This episode shouldn't paired with that awful sister episode which is called Choir Boys. I find Porous Pockets is kinda interesting.

This is funny and underrated - RockStarr

For some reason I like this epsoide

41 Shuffleboarding
42 Squid's Visit

This episode is very creepy. it deserves to be the worst season 6 - Antwon

This episode was creepy and I hate it. But it's not the worst episode in season 6. I'm looking at you The splinter!

Nope, creepy and makes SpongeBob look like a stalker. - Catacorn

My god this episode just straight out creepy the noises when he walks and the part when he talks to his vacum

43 Professor Squidward

He actually served the torture, so I think it was done correctly. Plus, SB and Pat were funny and annoying at the same time

I think this episode was pretty funny & all characters where in character from the older episodes. And squidward did 'deserve' to be torchered as he gladly took a job that was for squillm, impersonated him, & knew that he shouldn't have.

Tick,tick,tick BLEH! THIS EPISODE STUNK. - puglover2008

44 The Splinter

One of the worst episodes in cartoon history

One of the most overdone episodes ever done by spongebob. Plus the plot was just idiotic.

Guys! The Person Who Made the List Probably Wanted to Include EVERY S6 Episode, so That Means Including "The Splinter" - ChiefMudkip

No - Gangem

45 Dear Vikings

Get this off the list. NOW. - evil7

Boring as crap. Shouldn't be here.

Dear Vikings is above Squids Visit and Porous Pockets? - RockStarr

It SUCKED other then the Gordon, Gordon, Gordon, Gordon, Gordon, etc, This guy. - errrr

46 Boating Buddies

Third worst Squidward torture episode, behind Squid Baby and Choir Boys.

Are you kidding! This is the worst Squidward torture episode

Ah, My first Spongebob episode

This episode deserves to go higher!
