Top Ten Creepiest Spongebob Episodes

Spongebobs for kids right? WRONG! There are some things in spongebob that are just creepy. So here it is.

The Top Ten

1 Graveyard Shift

Not only is it the creepiest SpongeBob aired episode it's also the best. I can watch this episode 1000,000 times and never get sick of it. The way squidward tells the hash slinging slasher story and all the thing that will happen when he arrives is like of a horror movie I also love the ending with the very creepy Nosferatu smiling at the kiddies.

This scares me so much I am 13 and I literally still get scared on tuesday night that the hash singing slasher will come. I love spongebob but I try to avoid this episode and also the one where the gorilla takes sandy and Patrick.

I ran away from the T.V. when I was little during this one.

This is scary as $hit

2 Squids Visit

Just when you thought Scooby Doo, Where Are You and Rocko's Modern Life were disturbing enough for you then check this out this episode of SpongeBob will not only disturb you, it will give you nightmares with Squidward getting tortured, Sexual imagery, and a hellish scene where Squidward goes crazy, its crazy.

Please don't even remind me of this creepy episode! I remember seeing it vaguely when I was younger, although I don't remember being scared. The thing is, I was scared of stupid things, but wasn't scared of things like zombies. - RaccoonCartoon

This one is unbelievably creepy, if you think about it. Hoe does SpongeBob even know all of the tiny little details about squidwards house? Even if he visited his house he wouldn't notice all of those things. :/ When did SpongeBob have the time to look at them?

I didn't find this episode as bad as some others but it still is the creepiest squidward at the end with his eye twitching and going crazy dating his vacum was creepy the fact that SB copied the whole house! Every little bit and even at the VERY end whEn SB snd Gary R sleeping outside and his blanket breaks, who knows what happened to them after that sleeping outside!

3 Squidward In Clarinetland

This episode is just creepy like the part where Squidward is in the mirror room

This is the creepiest most disturbing episode in all of spongebob! How is this not #1?!

Squidward in the mirror room is totally creepy I agree. But I always laugh when he wakes up in the locker... his face is funny!

Trippy especially that eagle head - Lunala

This episode is unintentionally disturbing. Since it's not supposed to be creepy, Spongehenge deserves to be Number 1 (Even if it is kinda a guilty pleasure to me)

My brother told me this one was weird and I always believed him. The sun and moon with real faces and the aliens always bothered me when I was younger. - Chikinan

I remember this episode, but I could never remember the episodes name. It was the most frightening experience that I've had, watching it as a child

This episode is super disturbing a lot.From aliens to a talking sun and moon but I am not scared of the sun and moon.Aliens we're super disturbing.They looked as ugly as Dora the Explorer

5 Rock Bottom

The music alone... Also the monsters, as a kid, I almost cried after this episode...

I liked this episode a lot as a kid and it is still one of my favorite episodes.

I remember the red light creeping me out a bit. Just a bit. - Chikinan

Now, this episode was my favorite, but as a kid, it creeped me out more than Nightmare on Elm Street.

The reason why its the creepiest is because the fusions of squidward and spongebob are just disturbing. But that's not all. The worst one is the ending. UGH ITS NASTY! And that's why this episode is morbidly disturbing.

Typically, you'll see creepy scenes in modern SpongeBob, but this beats The Splinter. I mean, we all got splinters. But we never united into one body. - redhawk766

It 's the 10th creepiest episode of any cartoon... ever! Also, I'd rank it 8 or 9 on my worst Spongebob episode's list. Like, the ending was gross.

Two tropes: Body Horror and Nightmare Fuel. Enough said. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

10 Mermaid Man vs SpongeBob

This epsoide freaks me out - Forgetspongeloud

The Newcomers

Really weird... - Alien51

The Contenders

11 One Course Meal

This is whack. The way they handle suicide issues, that Krabs didn't get comeuppance for his vices, and that plankton was tormented too much despite him trying petty schemes for theivery, all make Krabs look unfair, TOO GREEDY TO THE POINT OF MURDER, and this episode could've been a lot better.

Not only is this the worst spongebob episode, this is also one of the most sickening cartoon episodes I've ever seen. Jokes about suicide were never funny and never will be funny, especially on a show for kids.

This is the number one worst, not number nine. Believe me, seeing Plankton tortured for no reason is the last thing I'd expect in SpongeBob. - redhawk766

This was just messed up when I watched as a kid I felt bad for plankton.

13 Face Freeze

SpongeBob characters made weird faces before. (funny ones, not creepy) So Nick decided to dedicate a whole episode about it, thus creeping us out.

This episode was horrible! Those faces were so ugly.

How's this even allowed on a kids show?! Those faces were disgusting! - Powerfulgirl10

This nightmare fuel, episode.

15 Are You Happy Now?

Squidward torture to the max. Small wonder why squidward went psycho.

I didn't like this one it was boring - Spongebobipod

This episode has a suicide joke in it. But it's not creepy. - Powerfulgirl10

16 Wormy

I like the butterfly. I don't know why everyone's scared by it. It's cute.

I got scared and always covered my eyes at the part of the close up butterfly.

I think this was a good episode but the horsefly scene scared me so much as a child. I would always run out of the room when it came on.

Ever seen a horsefly up close? Now you will. - RaccoonCartoon

17 Toy Store of Doom

Why would the sponge bob writers in fact any one in there right mind think was a good idea to picture a toy story, something wonderful and filled with happy and turn it in to a dark disturbing crooked layer. In fact I think that the old sponge bob episodes were indeed better than this weird depressing show.

I've never seen this one, but I have a feeling that I'm lucky. The description creeps me out, so enough said

That explains why a lot of kids don't play with toys that much.

Those scary toys... "They want... to get us..."

18 I Was a Teenage Gary


This isn't scary at all! It is actually funny! - RalphBob

If this scene wasn't cut, I would watch it 3 times

The intire episode was disturbing, seeing spongebob turned in to that hideous mutant was terrifying. How did that make it on air? That's worse then dark harvest on invader zim

19 Fear of a Krabby Patty

The huge Krabby Patties freaked me out as a kid. I never wanted to watch this episode! By far the creepiest in SpongeBob history. - Alien51

People say that Mr. Krabs almost made SpongeBob kill himself, but I don't think that's true. He just goes insane, doesn't reference it at all, and SpongeBob literally says "I want to live! "

This is a great episode.

Really? This one's not even creepy! - Powerfulgirl10

20 House Fancy

ALL BECAUSE OF THE TOE NAIL SCENCE! Well that's it I hope you vote and if I made any spelling errors. Please don't complain. And the reason why the splinter is not on here is because I don't find this episode that scary. So bye.

I didn't even know that Squidward had a toenail.. But he does, and it gets pulled off in this episode. It's painful and gross to watch. - RaccoonCartoon

Toenail scene... couldn't eat for a while after seeing it. - redhawk766

Before toenail scene: Oh, this episode seems good. Squidward always beats Squilliam!
After toenail scene: *faints*
