Best Spongebob Squarepants Seasons

The Top Ten

1 Season 2

Band Geeks, Dying for Pie, Frankendoodle, Graveyard Shift, Survival of the Idiots, Bubble Buddy, The Fry Cook Games, Christmas Who? , Something Smells, Wormy, Squid's Day Off, Your Shoe's Untied, Bossy Boots, Big Pink Loser, Imitation Krabs, Patty Hype, Grandma's Kisses, Squidville, PreHibernation Week, Life of Crime, Dumped, No Free Rides, I'm your Biggest Fanatic, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III, Squirrel Jokes, Pressure, The Smoking Peanut, Shanghaied, Gary Takes a Bath, Welcome to the Chum Bucket, The Secret Box, Krusty Love, Procrastination, I'm with Stupid, Artist Unknown, Jellyfish Hunter, Squid on Strike, and Sandy, SpongeBob, and the Worm. Wonderful.

This is by far my FAVORITE season! All of the episodes are well written and hilarious. Highlights include Dying for Pie, Gary Takes a Bath, Bubble Buddy, Survival of the Idiots, Grandma's Kisses, Band Geeks, and just about every episode aired. The only seasons I feel that comes very close to comparing to this are Seasons 3 and 1. If you haven't watched a single episode, then you must be crazy, cause this is Nickelodeon at the height of their "golden age," along with one of the closing chapters of the cartoon renaissance of the 90's and early 00's.

This should be number one because of great episodes like Big Pink Loser, Imitation Krabs, Shanghaied, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III and of course, Band Geeks. This season is the only season without any bad episodes in my opinion.

This season will always be the best!

2 Season 3

Season 1, season 2, and season 3, were awesome (My opinion) but my favourite of all SpongeBob seasons is season 3 it was very well thought, very funny, characters were the same from the old episodes but the characters changed a little bit, and finally the thing I about season 3 was that it was not boring, no stupid repetitive jokes and SpongeBob was a little bit more smarter and he would cry because of actual reasons and the person who was watching it would actually feel bad for SpongeBob. But in the later seasons SpongeBob would cry because of Nothing he was very annoying (he was annoying in the old seasons but SpongeBob would not do it as much) and it would repeat the same joke over and over and over and the creators of the show would get ideas from other episode and copy the same thing that happens in that episode it is like they are running out of ideas.

Season 1 was pretty funny and unique for its time, but some episodes were bland and unfunny. I used to record and watch those episodes again and again as a kid, but as an adult, it doesn't hold up well. When a series starts, you notice that characters develop as the series goes along (most series start off with very stereotypical, broad characters. ) Season 2 was drastically better with better writing and jokes. At this point, every character has evolved from season 1. But, season 3 was the epitome of SpongeBob: great writing, great humor, well-established characters, NO BLAND EPISODES. This season has the most memorable moments in it, and it spanned 3 years during my childhood. 4 was very hit or miss, not even as good as season 1. Everything else pretty much sucks.

This had my favorite episodes, season 1 and 2 were also great, also season 4 and 5 were good. Season 6 and 7 were pretty bad. Season 8 was a pretty good come back on the old jokes and season 9 so far is going pretty good and I hope that the future season 10 is going to be exactly like the first 3.

3 Season 1

Season 1 was amazing! It was really close to my number 1 favorite season, but it just didn't quite make it. It had a lot of my favorites like Help Wanted, I Was a Teenage Gary, Pickles, Arrgh, Ripped Pants and other amazing episodes, but season 2 was a little better in quality in my opinion, but overall, it is still an amazing season. - itsshehahnbro

This season had some of my favorite episodes of the entire show. Also, there wasn't a single episode I disliked from this season. Season two had I'm with Stupid, the episode that ruined the character of Patrick and season three had Party Pooper Pants, an episode in which I was on nobody's side. Perfect season with hilarious episodes.

This season was my favorite. Back when Stephen Hillenburg was still on the show and back when the comedy was hilarious. I'm still laughing at some of the jokes many years later. Plus, the episodes were more creative and well thought out. I also like the old school animation and voice acting feel of season 1. Season 2 is practically the same and season 3 is when they started improving the animation more. But this season will always remain in my heart as my favorite season from any cartoon. I miss my childhood. Half of it was watching this show lmao.

This is the only season that I did not find one episode I couldn't sit through on a rewatch. it also has gems like hall monitor, the paper, bubble stand, scaredy pants, ripped pants, argh and rock bottom as well as the best mermaid man and barnacle boy episode ever (mermaid man and barnacle boy two) - Brochach

4 Season 4

Season 4 is great. It contains both good and bad episode. But there are mostly good episodes, including Have you seen this snail? Krusty Towers, Best Day Ever, Fear of a Krabby Patty, and lots more. The bad episodes are All That Glitters, and Squidwood. SpongeBob is really funny in this season but I keep hearing he is the most funny in the third season. But SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, and Sandy are the four best characters including Plankton. The reason I like Best Day Ever is because of the song and transcript, it's awesome. Krusty Towers is better because of both SpongeBob and Squidward, they were both so darn funny. I recommend this episode to everyone who like SpongeBob. Season 1 was not good at all, and that's because of the graphics. In Season 2, the graphics kicked up a bit, and in the third season, it showed SpongeBob in his best quality. Season 4 is a mix between late second season and late third season which has good graphics. Seasons 5 and 9 are both great seasons too. ...more - TopTenJackson

I liked the slightly duller colors in season 1. It gave it a nice atmosphere - mtndewlord

In my opinion I think the show got better and better until season 5, and went down in seasons 6 and 7 but, made a comeback in seasons 8 and 9. Hope the future episodes are awesome. :-)

To be honest, I love Season 4 almost as much as I love Seasons 1-3. There is a few debatable episodes in this season more than usual like Karate Island and Rule of Dumb but there's still a lot of charm here. This season feels a lot like SpongeBob. While I will say that Season 5 has better good episodes, this is definitely the best post movie season even though Seasons 5 and 9 come pretty close too.

I liked this season... until funny pants

5 Season 9

I would vote Seasons 1-3 and early Season 4 any day over this, but I think Nickelodeon has taken the right steps to bringing SpongeBob back. The first episodes were horrible like Squid Baby and Little Yellow Book, but the newer ones from 2015 and 2016 were better with the addition of more Plankton themed episodes and more minor character importance (like the episodes Mall Girl Pearl and Larry's Gym). The new episodes have some originality and are starting to appeal to kids and teens/adult fans again. It's not making suicide jokes (like Are You Happy Now? ) or filling episodes with crap to take up time like episodes in Seasons 6-7. The episodes have plots again, and the quality animation has even increased. So now my favorite Seasons are 1,2,3,part of 4, 9, and 10, since the two episodes that Season 10 had so far (Whirly Brains, MermaidPants) were also pretty good. If Nick keeps these types of episodes coming, it will please everyone.

This should be #5 or #6. Season 9 is great because its when SpongeBob started getting much better than it was.

The only bad seasons of SpongeBob I think are Seasons 6 and 7, Season 8 started getting the old humor again, and Season 9 was great. All seasons are great except for the 6th and 7th seasons. - TopTenJackson

This seasn brought spongebob out of so many years of mediocrity - Brochach

6 Season 5

Seasons 2 through 6 were the best. I still love the other episodes though. If only I could vote for more than one. The new episodes do not suck, in fact more people watch those ones and the old ones are the ones with canlation threats even though I like still like them.

While Season 4 is what I'd consider the last good season before Season 9, Season 5 wasn't exactly a bad season either. In fact, I'd give Season 5 a ranking between ok and decent. Season 5 is more of a hit or miss season. It's either, the writers come up with something really good(like Roller Cowards) or sometimes, it can end up being atrocious (like To Love A Patty). Season 6 is really the moment when Spongebob became bad and Season 7 is the moment when Spongebob was at it's worst. Thankfully, Season 8 was a slight improvement from those atrocities and Season 9 is the moment when the show was saved, with the exception of 3 atrocious episodes ("Squid Baby", "Little Yellow Book", and "Spongebob You're Fired").

This is actually my second or third favorite season. This season is so underrated, and I don't think the quality declined until Season 6 in my opinion. It had many great episodes such as Spy Buddies, Roller Cowards, New Digs, Krabs a la Mode, Goo Goo Gas, and Sing a Song of Patrick! It also had good shorts such as Pat No Pay, Boat Smarts, and SpongeBob Vs. The Patty Gadget.

This season is very underrated it has krabs a la mode roller cowards friend or foe and goo goo gas very good episodes

7 Season 8

Why are so many people hating patricks stay cation yes I agree patrick was a jerk in this episode every now and then but it was a great episode when I was a kid its supposed to be new but for some reason I remember this from when I was 8 and I'm 14!

This is definitely an improvement from the 6-7 slump. There were only two episodes that end up on my worst list for the show, Demolition Doofus (my least favorite episode) and Face Freeze! Everything else here was either mediocre or great.

I liked this season not as good as the first 3 but still had a few good episodes :-)

Hello binki bottom was awesome - Spongebobipod

8 Season 6

I hate this season! Why is this here?

They have to put all seasons stop complaining

I know that Plankton is the worst villains ever. His themed episodes are just average in this season.

Toy Store of Doom is good - Gangem

9 Season 10

This season is excellent! Most of the episodes had me laughing so hard, I had tears coming out of my eyes! It is definitely a huge improvement! If you still hate the "modern" Spongebob, please GIVE THIS SEASON A TRY! You may be surprised! - bigbubba2001

This season is way better than seasons 5-8. Lots of these episodes had me laughing and I felt like I was watching the earlier seasons. Please watch this season, its good! Plus Stephen Hillenburg (the creator of Spongebob) came back to this show if you're wondering why Spongebob is so good now. - Catacorn

It's not as good as 1-3, but it is at least as good as season 4. A definite improvement from many of the prior seasons.

This is when things really got picking up again for spongebob.
That song who am I reminds me of that welcome to the chum bucket song and even though there seems to be a lot more violence now it’s still a MAJOR improvement from the second half of season 5, seasons 6,7,8, and the first half of season 9

10 Season 7

Guys, your clearly a two year old if you say "why is this season here? Why are two year olds making comments. Do you know what season is beneath Season 7. Season 10, Season 11, and Season 12. Have any of those seasons came out yet? No. So since so many don't have a brain, I have to let you know that they are calling this the worst season of SpongeBob. That's like if you were watching The Uncommom SBF's Top 14 Pixar Films Ranked. And you said "why is Cars 2 at 14". It's called ranking. Read a dictionary if you don't know what ranking is!

If you watched the episode "I Dancing", you know what I'm talking about. - booklover1

This season sucks! Why is this here?

This is the only season I cannot legitamatly enjoy - Brochach

The Contenders

11 Season 11

I enjoyed Spot Returns! It's basically Pet or Pests done right! The Check Up was a meh episode for me though. Spin the Bottle was good and at least something unique to the Plankton's steals the Krabby Patty formula episodes. I also can't wait for The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom stop motion episode and Man Ray Returns (the sequel to Mermaid Pants). I think Season 11 will be as good as Seasons 9B-10. If not better. - Tyler730

This season didn't even come out yet. But I can't wait for it to come

Spot Returns and The Check-Up are Season 11 - Tyler730

Number 11 is season 11
