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

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.

I Had No Idea This Was A Season 4 Episode Until I Looked It Up It's That Good It Has Fantastic Humour, Awesome Story And Squid ward Acutely Getting Pay Back For Once. I Could Watch This Episode A Million Times And Still Love It More And More It's Not Only My Favourite Post Movie Spongebob Episode But It's One Of My Top 10 Favourite Spongebob Episodes of All Time

Great episode. Best of season 4;

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.

2 Sand Castles In the Sand

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.

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.

This episode deserves to be at #1, it feels like this episode was part of the first 3 seasons

This is simillar to Bugs vs Yosamite sam
But added much epicness instead

3 Roller Cowards

My Favourite Post Movie Spongebob This Episode Is In Top 5 It's So Relatable And Hilarious It Has A Great Plot And Conflict And Unlike Some Other Cartoons The Characters Modulations Are Completely Understandable Spongebob Don't Wasn't Want To Disport His Friend And Nether Does Patrick Everything In This Episode Just Works For Me Brilliantly And that's Why It's My Favourite Post Movie Spongebob Episode

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!

Didn't know it was post movie and that means something's

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"!

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?

Admit it. You cried during the song. This is arguably the best Gary episode since "Dumped".

This episode has the saddest song. - Datguyisweird666

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!

Just an adorable episode! - Datguyisweird666

6 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. - BlueBobYT

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

This is my favorite season 5 episode! - Datguyisweird666

Extremely great

7 It's a Spongebob Christmas!

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

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

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

I honestly didn't like it that much.

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!.

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. - TeamRocket747

Squidwards eye touches remote FEYOWWW! fire alarm sound LOL

9 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 weird but great it's pretty funny in a way

I don't know why I hated this episode when I was younger. I actually like it now! - Datguyisweird666

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. - Rocko

10 Dunces and Dragons

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. - Garythesnail

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

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

This is on much top 10 list of episodes! I’d doesn’t get the attention it deserves either. It’s funny, creative, and memorable. This is th beet special, and the best post movie episode. The character design is amazing, the song are catchy and fit well with the story, and it is a good way to present medieval times to children. It doesn’t really go on about violence, though there was Planktonamor threatening to burn Pearl and Mr. Krabs has a guilatine. The jokes and songs drown this out, and the fanasty aspect is great as well! This may even get kids to play Dungeons and Dragons. I play it, and it’s great! The show does a good job of portraying D&D. This episode is much better than Have you seen this snail? That episode is sappy, bland, and unfunny. There is th song, which was kind of good. It wasn’t just sappy, and Without you/ A Stove is a Stove portrayed sadness in a song much better. Everyone seems to love it for some reason. Dunces and Dragons is definitely the better ...more

The Contenders

11 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 episode actually makes sense, unlike other episodes.

This is about the origin of Plankton and Mr. Krab's rivalry. And how crappy Mr. Craps became. - TeamRocket747

I think this should be higher on the list. I enjoyed it.😊

12 The Lost Mattress

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

Great episode

Honestly this episode is very underrated

Good episode. - TeamRocket747

13 Wishing You Well

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!


Squidward is afraid of santa

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

This is a very funny episode. - TeamRocket747

14 Sing a Song of Patrick

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

I like and hate this episode. - TeamRocket747

Uhhh no? this episode is just patrick being an ass the whole time

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!

15 Mrs. Puff, You're Fired

This episode feels like a pre movie episode.

This episode was planned for Season 3 actually, so it's not a surprise. - Goatworlds

A quality episode. Good guest characters.

Way better than spongebob you're fired - cadespencer

Better than SpongeBob, you're fired. - TeamRocket747

16 Planet of the Jellyfish

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

Season 4 is post movie and that season was epic. You're surprised because the episode we're talking about here is season 8 (a bad season) - Goatworlds

This episode is awesome. Period. - TomKellyCartooning

A creepy episode but still good

I used to think this was S2. - IcetailofWishClan

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.

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

Come on people! #24? This needs to be at number #1 ( in my opinion)!

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

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

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

This episode is very great. Just the meme was horrible and ruined it. - TeamRocket747

19 Patrick-Man!

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

I love this episode.

This episode is so funny

I love this. - TeamRocket747

20 Fear of a Krabby Patty

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.

To be honest, this might be my favorite episode in the entire series.

21 What's Eating Patrick?
22 Squid's Visit

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

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

No this one shouldn't be here

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

23 Perfect Chemistry

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.

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.

My favorite episode of Season 7, not even on here!

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.

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. - PokemonRPGbro

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 - cadespencer

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

25 Ghost Host

Ghost Host should be higher - Gangem

Ghost Host is great! - TeamRocket747

26 Mimic Madness Mimic Madness

Should be higher.

27 Single Cell Anniversary

This was sweet, should be in top 10. - PokemonRPGbro

REALLY needs to be in the top ten.

28 Tentacle-Vision

This one should not be this high because it is so (Dolphin Noise, Horn Honking, ship's bell, seal bark, seagull squawking) bad!

Why is this one here I hate this episode its full of undeserving squid torture

This is a torture episode done right. It's got some brilliant gags, and it's pretty damn funny. One of my favourite Season 7 episodes, along with That Sinking Feeling and Squidward in Clarinetland. - Rocko

I honestly like this one for the most part. - IcetailofWishClan

An iconic season 6 episode

31 Gary In Love
32 The Bad Guy Club for Villains

My favorite Season 7 episode! - ChiefMudkip

This is post-sequel episode, so it doesn't really count. But it's still a great episode.

34 Patrick! The Game
35 The Slumber Party

The funniest Season 6 episode

36 Love That Squid

Definitely not bad for Season 7 - ChiefMudkip

If only This came out after Yours Mine & Mine or Pet Sitter Pat :/ - ChiefMudkip

39 Company Picnic

This is a post-sequel episode, it doesn't count. - Badpun

40 Toy Store of Doom

I thought this was a filler episode. - Goatworlds

This was creepy

41 Chum Bucket Supreme

Very funny.

There's a shocky thingy in your potty - NostalgiaMonkey

42 Mooncation

I think this is the BEST episode from season 8. It's not better than the pre-movie episodes, but it's a really good episode. It's also one of the best post-movie episodes EVER! - Svampbob164

Sincerely... this made all Season 8's worst fiascos become worth it. I'm looking at you, Face Freeze!

This one was just a poor man's Sandy's Rocket.

43 Squid Baby Squid Baby

That's my least favorite episode of all time.

44 Drive Thru
45 Jailbreak

Awesome episode!

I Love every character In this episode - ChiefMudkip

49 Pest Of The West

Pretty cool western SpongeBob episode

How is this 99 and A Pal For Gary is 52?! - Maddox121

50 Chimps Ahoy

This is a really funny episode and should be closer to #1. I'd probably put it at 12 or 13. - NostalgiaMonkey

Bad episode, Sandy's song is poorly sung, the dr. Professor Patrick gag annoyed me, and the monkeys were just stereotypes. Also, the episode is boring and one of the monkeys gets tormented in one part for no reason

I love the whole scene with Patrick inventing a parellel universe, that scene was really creative. - Rocko
