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

1 One Coarse Meal

Pearl and the whales ( DEFINITELY included ) could've happened toward the end of the series?! 20 years of Spongebob, almost, Plankton tried to steal the Krabby Patty formula! That's even worse than Squidward being the mean one in the whole series!

Die die die die die die die mr Krabs

Guys it's just a cartoon. It's not like an actual whale is eating them. It's silly.

I like this one, and probably like all the other episodes on this list. I like dark humor. Ok. not all. But the reasons I don't like some is because of other reasons, not because it's disturbing. - LordDovahkiin

2 Are You Happy Now?

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.

This pokes fun at the mental illness. This is bannably bad.

How is this disturbing? - LordDovahkiin

3 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.

4 The Splinter

The ending is the nastiest part

This one's disturbing too, it was so bad that I had to use SpongeBob's saying of Conch-shelled manatees, this is painful! To use for his reaction to The Cartoon Network 3 show episode A Day For Eliza Thornberry.

P.S. Its On Audio

5 Boating Buddies

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

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.

6 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.

7 A Pal for Gary

This episode is traumatizing. - RockFashionista

This is definitely the most disturbing episode. - funnyuser

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

8 House Fancy

Just the toenail scene just gross

9 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.

10 Face Freeze!

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.

I don't have a big problem with the other entries on this list. But this one is the only one I HATE.

How can you like this episode!

I couldn't stop laughing at this

The Contenders

11 Squidbob TenticlePants

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

Just disgusting!

12 Squid Baby

Hurt a mental patient is not funny, IT'S A CRIME! - Ozzy123

13 Wormy

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 - DaLizts

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 - Durpy

14 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.

How is dis your least fave?


15 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? - sandycheeks

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

16 Gone

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

17 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. - LordDovahkiin

18 Band Geeks

This episode rocks. Who put it here? - Spicygarlic

Band Geeks is the best episode of Spongebob EVER! Episodes like Face Freeze, Wormy, etc. this one, how the hell?


Nice joke entry. - LordDovahkiin

19 Stuck in the Wringer

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

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

20 Gullible Pants
21 SpongeHenge

AGAIN, NO COMMENTS FOR THIS EPISODE(check out thetoptens creepiest spongebob)

22 Nature Pants

Believe or not, this is the most disturbing episode, because I just saw an scene where SpongeBob gets attacked by jellyfish & when he decides to sleep, he got visited by poison sea urnichs

The part where patrick tells SpongeBob what to do was creepy because of the music. The music made me uncomforable

23 Idiot Box

Idiot box isn't as innocent as it seems. It's squidward falling deeper into his delusions until he cannot separate fantasy from reality...

I love this episode, it's not disturbing in my opinion

This isn't disturbing. - LordDovahkiin

24 The Gift of Gum

What a gross episode this is.

25 I Was A Teenage Gary

This was surprisingly the first episode to ever scare children because of SpongeBob's snail transformation. It's also a Season 1 episode... so yeah...

That episode is pretty creepy because of the transilation of SpongeBob. This is why they deleted squidward turning into a snail

26 Wet Painters

It was creepy because of Spongebob's eyes cracking and his irises falling out

I'm glad I wasn't the only one traumatized by that scene...

What? This is one of the best episodes ever

27 Frankendoodle
28 Mooncation

Like sands rocket but evil

I so agree I'm just saying

So disturbing and scary - Spongebobipod

This isn't disturbing. - LordDovahkiin

29 Jellyfish Hunter

The whole reason this is disturbing is because they squeeze the jellyfish and then the die

The scene where Krabs is abusing the jellyfish to extract their jelly... Kids' entertainment? Uhm, no I don't think so.

30 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

31 Mimic Madness

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.

32 Planet of the Jellyfish

Who knew that a double reference Planet of the Apes and Invasion of the Body Snatchers could be so charmingly creepy?

"Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite."
"That's some good advice, Squidward."
"There will be plenty of biting this night. RAAH! " - InvaderRailfanPokeNerd578

33 The Inside Job

Plankton went into SpongeBob's brain this episode was pretty strange - PatrickStar

34 Squidtastic Voyage

This is the most disgusting trip ever!

35 No Nose Knows

I thought the funeral for Pat's nose was disturbing. - Turkeyasylum

36 To Love a Patty
37 The Sewers of Bikini Bottom
38 Penny Foolish

I put this episode on this list because of Mr. Krabs' obsession with stealing the penny that SpongeBob had found. Now that makes him just as much of a stalker as his fry cook is to Squidward. That's not to say I feel sorry for SpongeBob, who deserves no pity because of the inconsiderate trouble that he causes.

Anyway, back to Mr. Krabs: It just sickens how low he sank to try and snag that coin from SpongeBob when it's really one cent. He should be arrested for that.

Who should also be arrested are the d**kheads who blindly support Krabs for his greed. I mean, would they continue to like him if he antagonized them for money?

39 The Great Snail Race
40 Patty Hype
41 Big Sister Sam
42 Help Wanted

This is the first epsoide but it was a little creppy with the dramatic music

43 The Bully

This epsoide funny I like the scream with Patrick saying is this pizza castle but at the end who wants to see flats kick his but
