Best Post-movie Spongebob Episodes

Though Spongebob has been going down the drain ever since season 4, there have been some great post-movie Spongebob episodes!
The Top Ten
1 Krusty Towers

I see on like 6 episodes "this is so good because it was planned for season 3 but released on season 4"

uh no, stop trying to sound like you know a lot about this. The writers of the show created 3 seasons of episodes. Every one was released and then they made a movie and quit. creator of the show didn't want it to die so he hired new writers, and every episode after the third season and the movie was written by them.

so there you have it. Stop saying random things to make yourself sound credible. writers can't make EVERY episode badly can they?

In my opinion, I think Season 4 is still part of classic Spongebob, giving us episodes like Fear of a Krabby Patty, Skill Crane, Wishing You Well, Dumces and Dragons, The Lost Mattress, Shell of a Man, and this. The humor in this episode is great, the transitions are smooth, the characters are all likable/get compensation, and the story is entertaining and believable. Definitely one of, if not the, best Spongebob episode of all time.

Krusty Towers and Patrick Smartpants are such brilliant episodes with perfect jokes that keep you laughing the whole episode which is something we haven't seen in a SpongeBob episode in a good 9 years (there are a few laughs here and there but not funny jokes throughout the whole duration of the show).

This should be #1. There is not a moment in this episode where I didn't laugh. After the episode Night Light premiered (season 5) Spongebob started going down the drain.

2 Sand Castles In the Sand

This felt like a Season 3 episode. The animation steals the show, and the music fits the action perfectly. However, I would vote for Krusty Towers if the writers of Atlantis SquarePantis didn't make this. This proves that, if Nickelodeon and the writers (specifically Zues and Casey) try, they can make an episode that rivals classics like Chocolate With Nuts or FrankenDoodle. This episode, like FrankenDoodle, uses animation to its advantage. Every joke works. It feels like a Season 3 episode.

I just watched this episode and it is amazing! It should be in the top 3. The whole episode feels like it actually has reason unlike most post-movie episodes. The fight was absolutely epic and I like the shin dig joke toward the beginning. It really does feel like it could be a pre-movie episode.

You don't need to watch Mr. Enter's review of this episode to know that this is already a good Post-Movie era episode. I always loved it the first time I saw it as a kid and I still love it to this day.

Amazingly good. Casey and Zues made this, and they made a bunch of bad episodes. But they have no excuse to write crap after writing this episode.

3 Roller Cowards

This is my favorite post-movie SpongeBob episode for many reasons. One, being that this is very relatable, and it teaches a good lesson. Never be afraid to tell the truth, never hesitate. Two, there is so much comedy and humor into this, like the talking ice-cream, or the conversation with Patrick with the other Patrick in the mirror. Three, SpongeBob's and Patrick's behaviors are really understandable, and relatable too.

Love this episode! Shows that the new writers can make a good episode when they really try. There are very few of the new episodes that make me laugh out loud but this is one of them. It feels like one of the old episodes from season 2 or 3. By far my favourite post movie episode!

The fact that neither SpongeBob nor patrick knows the other doesn't want to ride the rollercoaster makes the comedy halarious.

Pretty much right after this episode is when the show started to go downhill.

4 Have You Seen This Snail?

This episode is my favorite episode of all time. This episode literally made me cry when I first watched it, but in a good way. This is a soap-opera themed episode done right (which we wouldn't see until Plankton Gets The Boot). It is sad, heartwarming, funny at times, and the sub-plot is just classic. My grandma likes this episode due to that sub-plot. It's literally an evil grandma that hoards snail shells. Like, that made me ask "what?! ",but it was because it was so fun to watch. Also, the song is the best song in Spongebob, that's right, better than "Never Give Up" from "Hello Bikini Bottom", and the song from "Two Thumbs Down"!

Very emotional episode. It shows how SpongeBob can't always be funny. Sometimes emotion is added to an episode. Writers always like to add drops of tears to the ingredients.

Everything a special should be, it is funny and heart warming, along with one of the best songs... why can't you do more of this, new writers?

A great and powerful message especially to pet owners easily the best special and one of the most dramatic episodes.

5 Plankton's Pet

This is the episode I've been waiting for literally my whole life. There is some actual character growth here. On top if that it's cute, funny and if episodes keep coming out like this, I'd say SpongeBob's back better than ever! Too bad Spot hasn't made a reappearance yet though...

I like seeing Plankton's compassionate side in this episode and seeing him really care about something that doesn't have to do with stealing the formula (I know he tries to steal the formula in one part but that's not the main thing the episode).

Oh My Gosh, I thought Season 9 was netterbthan 5-8, but this episode just proved that it is! Plankton has never been so happy!

Spot is so cute, but the Spot Returns was terrible. Why did it show fetuses inside spot?

6 It's a Spongebob Christmas!

SpongeBob and Christmas just go together very nicely because this and Christmas Who? Are some amazing episodes

A funny episode about my favorite holiday. 12/10 if that's possible

Funny, Heart-filled, just a perfect post-movie episode!

The way they did stop motion was great!

7 Krabs a la Mode

Think about it now, I only like a few episodes more than this, this is definitely an episode that belongs in the pre-movie seasons, it can definitely win against a lot of golden pre-movie episodes, all characters are in perfect personality in this frozen wonderland. It's just beautiful in every way.

Amazing, could definitely compete with pre movie this used to be my favorite episode of all time

I lol every time I think about that thermometer scene I don't know why, it just always gets me

This is my favorite season 5 episode!

8 Skill Crane

A post movie episode where Squidward gets loads of torment and they do it right. They make Squidward really arrogant about the machine and so he actually deserved his torment in the episode, even there they don't go too far to make it a Squidward Torture Porn.

I'd say season 4, with the exception of a few atrocious duds (Good Neighbours, Gift of Gum, Funny Pants), was a fantastic and really successful season. There's a few episodes here that could even be up there with the best Pre Movie episodes, such as Krusty Towers, Have you seen this snail and Mr. Puff, You're fired!.

One of a few Post-Season 3 episodes where Squidward deserved his torment, unlike Good Neighbors (my least favorite episode. Yes, worse than APFG and OCM, which are bad enough). He was aggorant about the crane and he actually deserved it. Patrick the Game (another overhated Post-Sequel episode) did the same thing, except that he insulted Patrick's games.

Good episode unlike it's sister oh and there should now be list's for the post sequels

Not really Squidward Torture Porn. Squidward was pretty savage to the kid.

9 Dunces and Dragons

In my honest opinion, Dunces and Dragon is a Top 10 all-time SpongeBob episode. I just love it that much. The 12th Century adventure was amazing, SpongeBob and Patrick were as hilarious as ever, and the different takes of their friends (and enemy) were entertaining. It's the most rewatchable episode for me.

I love this episode with a passion. It's so funny and creative, and the characters are all at their lovable personalities. Up there with Band Geeks and Chocolate With Nuts.

Nice pun on Dungeons and Dragons by the writers, though. Plus, I actually loved Dunces and Dragons. It felt like a pre-movie episode.

This episode is awesome like pest of the west it's take place more further to the past for sure

10 Squidward In Clarinetland

The writers probably thought "Hey! Let's write an episode while on LSD! " This leads to a weird, unique episode that feels like it shouldn't be a SpongeBob episode. Recommend it.

This episode is brilliant. I love the scene with the guy going to pick up the loose change, just for Mr Krabs to run up to him acting like an animal.

I don't know why I hated this episode when I was younger. I actually like it now!

Watching this is more freakish then taking a swim in a swamp while on LSD

The Contenders
11 The Lost Mattress

This was originally an unfinished Season 3 episode that got moved to Season 4. The other one's like that are Krusty Towers, Mr.s Puff You're Fired, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy VI and Whale of a Birthday

Its good because Squidward is a gigantic, selfish, kniving jerk in this episode, but he gets punished and tortured for it.

Hilarious! This should be #2 (behind "Krusty Towers").

Honestly this episode is very underrated

12 Friend Or Foe

This is one of the most original concepts of a SpongeBob episode (and I mean all of SpongeBob) The premise is how Krabs and Plankton became rivals, but before then, they were best friends. This is easily my favourite special, and is in my top 5 favourite episodes.

This is about the origin of Plankton and Mr. Krab's rivalry. And how crappy Mr. Craps became.

This episode actually makes sense, unlike other episodes.

Great! Good for post movie Spongebob, and that’s saying a lot!

13 Wishing You Well

This is among the best in the series. But what do you expect if this aired in season 4?

"Nice try, Squidward, but there's no Santa Claus in here!"

My second favorite episode of all time only behind the KK Training Video!

This is basically one of the best SpongeBob episodes ever made! I love the claustrophobic quote!

Squidward: I'm claustrophobic.
Patrick: What does that mean?
SpongeBob: It means he's afraid of Santa.
Patrick: Ho Ho Ho!
SpongeBob: Stop it Patrick! You're scaring him!

LOL! LOVE THIS ONE SO MUCH!

14 Sing a Song of Patrick

twinkle twinkle Patrick Star
I made myself a sandwich
My mommy named it Fred
It tastes like beans and bacon
And smells like it’s been dead
Writing stuff is hard so I use a pointy pencil
Pointy pointy pointy
Pointy pointy point
PU what’s that horrible smell
D R U M S O L O

Just so you know,
Twinkle twinkle Patrick Star!
I made myself a sandwich.
My mommy named it Fred.
It tastes like beans and bacon.
And smells like it's been dead!
Writing stuff is so hard, I use a pointy pencil.
P.U, what's that horrible smell?
Drum Solo!
(Drum solo)
I have a head, it ends in a point.
Pointy, pointy, pointy, pointy, pointy, pointy, point.
The song is over, except for this line,
You win this round, broccoli!

This has got to be the funniest modern episode. And it has the funniest spongebob song

I like and hate this episode.

15 Planet of the Jellyfish

An epic episode from the post-movie era? Who would've thought?

This episode was so weird but I love it and twisted

Creepy but in a good way unlike squids visit

Why is this episode so low on the list,

16 Mrs. Puff, You're Fired

This episode feels like a pre movie episode.

This is a good episode had some good moments

A quality episode. Good guest characters.

Way better than spongebob you're fired

17 Enchanted Tiki Dreams

The beginning is pretty weak and filled with a lot of 'Squid Abuse', and the ending is great but it goes by way too fast.

The part worth watching for is the middle. After their foolish antics make Squidward run home crying, SpongeBob and Patrick feel bad for him and want to make it up to him. The scene with Squid curled up under a chair at home is a powerful, heartbreaking scene that's played for genuine pathos.

I thought this would be another sqiudward torture episode from the beginning. Don't turn it off from the beginning. It is good the rest of the way through. They build a tiki land for sqiudward because for once they actually feel bad for what they did. And I love seeing sqiudward finally happy

The beginning was stupid, but it gets good when you know... Spongebob and Patrick care (in seasons 4-8. I know. Dun dun dun)

Why the (dolphin noise) is squids visit higher than this? I'm sorry, opinions are opinions, but I just don't get it

18 The Two Faces of Squidward

I love this episode! Patrick and SpongeBob were annoying at first, but then after the bandages come off, the episode feels different! It felt just like a Season 3 episode

Ugh. SpongeBob turning Squidward ugly. This episode sucked, and is very overrated. Also, Squidward WASN'T handsome, he looked really ugly.

Type in "attack on titan SpongeBob" on Google Images, you're bound to find Handsome Squidward acting like the Colossal Titan.

Two words I can say about why this episode is great: Handsome Squidward.

19 Patrick-Man!

Hilarious! Patrick isn't as stupid in this episode! He actually tries to help people but fails hilariously!

I hate this one it's my 9th least favriote of all time

This episode is so funny

I don't like this one ne

20 Fear of a Krabby Patty

The first (and best! ) post-movie episode (not counting the ones after the second movie, but even then...). In fact, it's one of the best episodes of the entire show. Makes me wonder what the rest of post-movie would be like if C.H. Greenblatt stayed on the writing team.

This was a very funny episode of Spongebob Squarepants. This was probably the first post-movie episode I have seen and it really felt like an episode from season 3! Definitely my favorite episode of season 4!

This was the first post-movie episode. I thought it was a pre-movie episode when I first saw it!

There is not a single post-movie episode as good as this one. This definitely deserves to be #1.

21 Mimic Madness

Post sequel episode not post movie please remove

Should be higher.

This is post sequel but is still a fresh start for Spongebob’s rise is quality

22 Squid's Visit

19! this episode is scaring spongebob seems insane squid ward goes insane... I usally say you have to watch the bad to appreciate the good but avoid this one at ALL cost

Squid's Visit?! I wanted to punch SpongeBob in the face for causing Squidward's house to burn down!

This episode actually gave me nightmares on one occasion.
But hey, at least it's unique.

Why is this here? This episode is just creepy and weird.

23 Perfect Chemistry

This episode is GREAT! It should be number 1. But also, there are some episodes that are higher on the list but I simply hate them (Have You Seen This Snail, Skill Crane, Echanted Tiki Dreams, Squid's Visit, Planet Of The Jellyfish, and the newcomer (Mimic Madness) I also really hate. But, this one was really funny, and really good. I think it should be #1. In my opinion, #2 is Krusty Towers, #3 is Roller Cowards, #4 is Goodbye Krabby Patty, and #5 is Frozen Face Off. P.S. I really like season 10 episodes: The Getaway, Lost And Found, Krusty Katering and Spongebob's Place.

Should be at least above Squid's Visit, Fear of a Krabby Patty (I like that one, but this one is a lot better), What's Eating Patrick (I like that one, but this one is a lot better), Patrick Man (I like that one, but this one is a lot better), The Two Faces of Squidward (I like that one, but this one is a lot better), Enchanted Tiki Dreams, Squidward in Clarinetland, Have You Seen This Snail. This is my personal #1, but I understand the episodes I didn't mention are above this one.

I agree with mr. Enter, this is easily the funniest modern Spongebob episode. The only modern Spongebob episode that is at least close to this one by terms of comedy is Krusty Towers. This one should be at least #2. How is it #23? My 4th favorite period.

This is the 4th best Spongebob episode of all time, and is #19 here. Unbelievable! Enchanted Tiki Dreams had just one funny joke (word with 9 letters that means boring - Spongebob.) But the rest of it is boring. And it's ending sucks. However, this episode is great.

24 Suction Cup Symphony

I think this episodes pretty underrated. A lot of the gags I think work, and they aren't out of character or cruel like a lot of current spongebob episodes. A lot of the episode is sort of slapstick, though. I like this one cause it seems like one of those episodes that is gonna end in Squidward getting tortured but it ends up pretty good for him. The song in it is actually pretty good too.

It seems like everyone forgets about this episode. One of the best spongebob endings ever, a unique twist, and the jokes were spot-on. I legit can't think of a joke I didn't laugh at in this episode, from the construction workers staring aquwardly at spongebob when he tries to distract them from squidward's clarinet playing, to the hilarious ways spongebob tries to "fix" patrick. In my opinion, should be #1.

This one should be in the top 10's it is far better than tentacle vision, squids visit and other episode's. plus the song squidward wrote is beautiful

Finally higher than tentacle vision yay! but still lower than squids visit boo!

25 Single Cell Anniversary
