Most Disturbing SpongeBob Episodes

You've voted for the best and the worst, now it's time to vote for the most disturbing episodes! Here's what I think are the most disturbing episodes of Spongebob ever made.

The Top Ten

One Coarse Meal

Why is the comment which says it's just some silly cartoon the second most liked comment? We're really devolving in terms of intelligence.

It's just a cartoon? There are suicide and depression jokes and it is not silly.

Oh yeah, I agree, it's just a cartoon...suicide and depression jokes...Mr. Krabs laughing after hearing Plankton was gonna kill's silly. That was a very smart comment.

Haha the person who said it's just a silly cartoon made him/herself look like his/her IQ is like Patrick's.

The Splinter

The most disturbing episode ever, like even Squid Baby or One Coarse Meal I can even handle. But this? No. First off, I thought SpongeBob was going to kill himself with all of those swords. Secondly, the way SpongeBob's thumb was sliding on the ground was disturbing, not to mention it was in slow motion and even worse, the way it was digging through his thumb, possibly reaching his bones. I'm shivering while typing this because it makes my skin crawl, because IT'S SO GROSS! Gee, thanks writers! Now the image is going to stay in my head!
Then SpongeBob is so desperate to get rid of it because Squidward said that he might miss work. Desperate enough to call, "DOCTOR" Patrick. RIIGHTTT. Then he starts making SpongeBob guilty by saying that he knows more than him, and he makes it worse by-YOU KNOW WHAT? I've said enough. This is disgusting. Bye

The scene where SpongeBob first gets the splinter is the most disgusting, vile sequence of animation I have ever witnessed. And this is coming from someone who loves Ren & Stimpy.

This is the most violent episode ever made and it feels like an adult cartoon.

The ending is the nastiest part

Are You Happy Now?

It's not a typical life is boring Squidward episode. Remember when Squidward had a rope and it looked like he was about to hang himself but he was just hanging his pet clam's cage. It also treats its problem seriously, and stuff. People who defend the episodes on this list...I've had enough of them already.

A special word to the visitor who was talking about how this was "bad for kids" and "had disturbing and offensive suicide scenes", I just watched the episode now and it's just your typical "my life is so boring" Squidward episode. I didn't see any suicide at all. The guy putting the pole in squidward's foot, the bird cage falling on Squidward, and the violin stick in his eye were accidents. And besides, there's nothing "bad for kids" in it, it's all just pretend.

This episode is not only bad for kids but it's really depressing. The tone, atmosphere, and squidward. The suicide scenes definitely are disturbing and offensive.

I hate the part where Squidward gets depressed

A Pal for Gary

This episode is traumatizing.

This is definitely the most disturbing episode.

I feel so bad for Gary it was more sad than disturbing

All moments with puffy fluffy's mouth are the most disturbing scenes in sb history

Squid's Visit

I'm glad this episode's on this list. That's what it gets for portraying SpongeBob as the no-life stalker he is. How dare he invade Squidward's life constantly, especially by copying his own home to look like the octopus' place.

If I didn't know better, I'd say that the episode's writes were trying to influence kids into being like that stupid sponge. because of that yellow character's relentless torture of the cephalopod, I want Squidward to kill SpongeBob and his (the sponge's) fanatics.

Now some episodes of the old cartoons did scare me such as Hello Dolphin, Scooby Doo & The Mummy Too, pretty much every Rocko episode & Nature Pants, but this literary takes the cake, we have SpongeBob coming to Squidward's house, the pillow scene, the tripping over the rash cream gag that's been done 3 times, the hallway scene, it's crazy, but the reason why I liked this episode is so that I can respect SpongeBob more during its downfall.

I think it is disturbing be cause near the end of the episode when squidward's house burned down and SpongeBob says to squidward he can stay at his place, squidward has a really creepy face and the background makes it even creepier.

I think it is disturbing because it made SpongeBob seem like a stalker.

Squidbob TenticlePants

Seriously I bet I can hear barfing noises while watching these other episodes! This episode is definitely the worst and most disturbing

Tied with Whirly Brains as my 2nd least favorite episode with only Dumped being worse.

That ending is enough to make this episode #1

Just disgusting!

Boating Buddies

Well Patrick. Ill tell you how its disturbing. SpongeBob IS A STALKER OF DEATH

Because of SpongeBob's breath

How was this disturbing?

This deserves to be high on the list because of much SpongeBob stalked Squidward. It's bad enough he does that. But when he looked at the octopus with a lusty look on his face and breathed heavily, that's downright sickening.

It seems that the sponge has become gay for Squidward. And I wish that octopus murdered him and all of his (SpongeBob's) fans.

Ink Lemonade

Basically everything about this episode is disturbing. It's easily one of the worst of the show, and has no redeemable material. The episode is filled to the brim with gross (the bandaid in the armpit scene), cruel (the entirely of what Patrick did to Squidward), and just flat out disturbing (the ending with the eggs...) material. This is like One Coarse Meal, but worse!

Not as disturbing as SquidBob TentaclePants, to be honest.

Face Freeze!

Someone said that while they were watching Face Freeze during a storm and their T.V. froze right on Squidward's face freeze and it terrified them. Dead, serious right now! No joke! I laughed so hard when I saw that comment. Because it was this list of Worst Spongebob Episodes and I saw it there. I mean, I know how that person feels. The first time I saw it, the song (and the image) would not get out of my head. It was so damn creepy! I think whoever wrote this episode wants to torture children and give them nightmares. It probably did!

Ha ha! Wasn't this episode hilarious?
No, no, it actually wasn't. Well, kind of, but most of the majority of this episode is a complete NIGHTMARE! Can you imagine the look on kids' faces after seeing this monstrosity? Okay, maybe I'm overreacting a bit. I mean, hey! It could be worse! This episode could've been a LIVE ACTION! Imagine what happened to Squidward happened to a HUMAN! Creepy, huh? If it did happen, it would terrorize me for a long time! And I'm not JUST talking about Squidward! Mr. Krabs, Spongebob and Patrick too! I give this episode a 5/10 because half of this episode was actually amusing

Y'all can say what you want about these episodes. I think Squidward 's face freeze is the creepiest. Second, is Mr Krabs. And then Spongebob and Patrick's are just damn ugly

Ugh, I hate this episode. All they do for the majority of the time is make the most obnoxious faces you've ever seen. Disgusting and disturbing and annoying. I rate this episode 0.

Demolition Doofus

The only thing that's disturbing about this episode is the fact SpongeBob didn't die like I wish that he did. It's what he deserves for ruining Mrs. Puff's life.

I also hate all the haters of Mrs. Puff for what she tried to do that sponge. How closed-minded they (the haters) are. If I'm any of them, I'd put myself in the puffer fish's shoes and experience all the trouble that SpongeBob gave me. If they do that, maybe they'll think twice about bashing Mrs. Puff.

The Contenders

The Battle of Bikini Bottom

Words cannot DESCRIBE how much I despise this episode. IT IS AWFUL! It makes A Pal for Gary look like Band Geeks. It really does. I hated everything about it. WORST EPISODE EVER.

I honestly love this one.


House Fancy House Fancy is the first season 6 episode from the TV series “Spongebob Squarepants”. In this episode, Squidward tries to make his house fancy so he could beat his rival at making a fancy house and Spongebob comes along to help.

This is actually a good episode because Squidward won at the end-minus that disgusting toenail scene. Secondly, he slipped on it, which made it even more disturbing and makes my skin crawl when I see it. Yuck

Just the toenail scene just gross

My toe hurts when I watch that scene... seriously, writers?

The writers of this episode should be sued.

Fungus Among Us

This episode traumatized me. I could not stop itching myself, I never want to watch it again!

I was little the first time I watched this and I was traumatised

I threw up after this episode.

Squid Baby Squid Baby is a Spongebob Squarepants episode from season 9 where Squidward slams his head on a mailbox which causes his head to swell up which makes him look and act like a baby.

Hurt a mental patient is not funny, IT'S A CRIME!

You're Right Ozzy123

True indeed

The Gift of Gum

What a gross episode this is.

To Love a Patty



Why is this not #1? This is literally the only episode that used to, and still, LEGIT GAVE ME NIGHTMARES. I was also scared of the gorilla in I Had An Accident, but I got over it. This one. Never. I'll never get over that close-up scene.

I will never watch this episode ever again, that close up scene traumatises me just by thinking of it.

The close up of the insect or whatever it was just game me nightmares. I'm almost 12 and I'm still not over it

It's called a butterfly. But ignore the buzzing. Because butterflies don't buzz. - LordDovahkiin

Even though I'm old enough, I think this is REALLY terrifying

What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?

That sponge bob face in quote "is there something wrong with me? ". The 2nd creepy episode is suicide squidward

Is there something wrong with me?

Is this the episode with...the face? if yes, this should be on the top ten


The Sewers of Bikini Bottom
Mimic Madness

it looks cool but not really

It's creepy because Spongebob keeps morphing when he loses his mind to imitate everyone he sees.
At least it's better than Face Freeze.

Nasty Patty

The pot disturbing spongebob tries to kill someone and then hide a dead body


How is this not up higher? Definitely much darker than the average spongebob episode.

Was this the episode where Spongebob wakes up and he's the only one in Bikini Bottom?

Intro: scary shot
Scenes:very dark and scary since I was 10-12
Almost/Ending:not scary(thank god! )

Stuck in the Wringer

Worst episode ever. The creators make it seem like Patrick is the good guy and SpongeBob is a jerk, but it's the other way around. #killpatrick

Did anyone else think SpongeBob was going to kill himself at the end of the episode when he was watching T.V. static?

Squidward in Clarinetland

Just strange...all I gotta say

I liked it, but it's a perfect example as to why not to take drugs.

The Graveyard Shift

Oh this epsoide not only is one of the creppyeist epsoide it's creppy because of the music the house of horrior
