Top 10 Episode Ideas for the SpongeBob Series Finale

I am no trying to make you sad, but SpongeBob is not going to last forever. All good things come to an end at sometime. In fact, there have been rumors that SpongeBob is going to end around 2019 (does not mean it will be in 2019). For this reason, I decided to come up with a list of ideas for the SpongeBob series finale. You'll like some of the ideas listed below, and you won't like some of the other ideas.

If you do not like any of the ideas on this list, then I'm sorry.

The Top Ten

1 The Best of SpongeBob SquarePants

What I would like also is for spongebob and sandy to get married for real and everyone gets a happy ending.

Great idea - Gangem

For the finale I think:

Spongebob finally gets his boating license, Plankton gives up stealing the formula and him and mr krabs become friends again and then they both end up working together at the krusty krabs and create chummy patties which everyone likes. - Lunala

1. sponebob finally gets drive licemze
2. squdward finally gets a famous
3. plankton and mr.krabs become friends again

2 How SpongeBob & Patrick Became Friends

Nice, that would be emotional and awesome! Plus, maybe the end could have everyone walk to the sunset to watch it (because it reminded me of the Season 1 finale of NWR Origins made by Thomas1Edward2Henry3).

Great, but not for a series finale.

Yeah this is a great idea! I'm surprised they haven't made this one yet.

I'd really like to see this - TwilightKitsune

3 The Best of Squidward Tentacles
4 Plankton's Formula Succession

This is nice Mr Iran's should leave plankton alone

It will be so nice

Plankton successfully gets the Krabby Patty formula, and the Chum Bucket sells Krabby Patties for real. Mr. Krabs didn't notice because he was too busy. He then notices that the Chum Bucket has just as many customers as the Krusty Krab. After he realizes that he's been selfish and mean to Plankton, he decides to leave Plankton alone. - anonygirl

This could be a cool end, because everyone wins in the end, especially Plankton.

5 SpongeBob's Permanent Boating License

I love this one

SpongeBob gets his boating license for real and never gets it provoked because SpongeBob's driving skills will have drastically improved. Mrs. puff then becomes proud of SpongeBob. - anonygirl

6 SpongeBob Moves Away

To Texas with sandy

7 It Was All Just a Book

The entire series of SpongeBob was just a book that Mrs. Squarepants (SpongeBob's mom) wrote, and the stories and characters in SpongeBob were not real. The episode starts like a regular SpongeBob episode, then the last 5 minutes of the episode tells us that it was just a fiction book that SpongeBob's mom wrote. - anonygirl

That Sounds Great, But There's One Flaw, Do You Really Think She Would Write One Coarse Meal or A Pal For Gary? - ChiefMudkip

This has got to be the best idea so far

Good Idea, but would Mrs SquarePants really tell the likes of I’m With Stupid, Stuck In The Wringer, The Splinter, Demolition Doofus, Little Yellow Book, and SpongeBob You’re Fired? They’re all SpongeBob torture porns. Maybe instead of Mrs Squarepants, it could be told by a bunch of pirates.

8 SpongeBob's Birthday
9 History & Evolution of The Krusty Krab
10 Mr. Krabs Retires and SpongeBob Becomes Owner of the Krusty Krab

It would be pretty cool if it all came full circle - Spongebob starts with him getting a jog at the Krusty Krab, and ends with Mr. krabs retiring - and actually, maybe not even Spongebob taking over the restaurant, but the Krusty Krab closing and everyone sorta just moving on, now that that chapter of their lives is over.

That does happen in the movie. I was surprised it didn't stick.

The Contenders

11 SpongeBob Dies

Thanos poo on spongebob causing him to die of poo fungus

heck no

I heard this is part of the story. SpongeBob commits suicide because of his identity.

12 SpongeBob and Sandy Get Married

I really think they should get married after all they do really like each other been proven in many episodes

That did happen. But it's only a play and I'll never tell ya.-Peter griffin.

13 Pearl Goes to College
14 Plankton's Last Stand

Spongebob will end in a crossover

This would be a 44 minute long special where Plankton attacks the Bikini Bottom ala Battle For Bikini Bottom. Spongebob would then unite all of the popular nickelodeon shows together (Invader Zim, CatDog, Fairly Odd Parents, Penguins Of Madagascar, etc.) to stop Plankton. After a long fight, Spongebob won and Plankton is arrested. To prevent Plankton From attacking again, the Judge sentences Plankton to Death Row. At the day of his execution, Plankton is then crushed to death by Krab's safe. After Plankton's death, Karen is then forced into a factory reset so she forgets about what happened during her time with Plankton. I know it sounds morbid, but a series usually ends with the main antagonist dead. After Plankton's death, a montage is shown with all of the main characters are living happier lives when plankton is no longer terrorizing them. Spongebob marries Sandy and finally gets his driving license, Squidward becomes famous for his music, Mr. Krabs finally becomes the richest man ...more


15 So Long, Bikini Bottom
16 Pearl's Mom

I heard a couple of theories about Pearl's mom but they would be inappropriate for an episode. So, I think Pearl's mom lost her daughter in a tragic accident but the mother thinks Pearl didn't make it. Pearl is was found and sent to the Bikini Bottom Nursery Home. Mr. Krabs wanted someone to take over his business when he retires. So he goes to the nursery home and finds a cute little baby whale. He chooses her and names her Pearl. Present day, Pearl's mom finds out she's alive and starts looking for her. She finds her and introduces herself to Krabs and Pearl. The mom wants to adopt Pearl for herself but it's Pearl decision to leave Krabs or stay. She picks to leave because she knows she's next in line for running the Krusty Krab. She thinks Krabs loves money more than her. Both Krabs and Pearl have flashbacks of the times they had fun together. Like when Krabs taught her how to ride a bike. Stuff like that. Pearl changes her mind and wants to go back but the mom wouldn't allow that. ...more

17 The Formula Revealed
18 SpongeBob Visits Equestria

Is that like a sponge Bob Square pants and MLP crossover

I respect your opinion if you don't like this episode

I didn't add this. - anonygirl

I personally do not think that SpongeBob should have a crossover with My Little Pony because SpongeBob is Nickelodeon, and My Little Pony is Hasbro. - anonygirl

Yes you are just a hater


20 Shrunken Karen

Karen gets tired of plankton’s fails to steal the formula, so she decides to steal it, but before she does that plankton would have to shrink her.

22 It Was All Just A Dream

This would be so realistic

23 Everyone Dies and the Show Ends

NO! We are not having another series finale that kills off the characters similar to the series finale of Dinosaurs!

24 Demolition Doofus (Alternate Ending)
25 Patrick Being Tortured

NO. No character torture. - Jasmine21064

At least Mr Krabs was tortured once, so we should see Patrick get tortured.

He should get tortured.

26 A Patrick Torture Porn Episode


No. Terrible idea for a series finale. Especially for people who absolutely love Patrick. - Jasmine21064

I''ve been wating for this moment my whole life.

27 Goodbye Krusty Krab
28 SpongeBob Gets Fired, Permanently!

31 Boss Plankton

M.R krabs finds out that he can work at a mint when he sees a help wanted sign. He is overjoyed and signs up right away! When sponge bob finds out he goes into rage mode! When krabs goes away sponge bob grabs the secret formula from the safe and asks plankton if he can run the krusty krab. Plankton accepts it right away! Meanwhile M.R krabs steals all the money he makes and gets sent to jail! One year later he gets out and returns to the krusty krab, and faints when he sees plankton in his office

32 SpongeBob Notices Global Warming is Real
33 Squid's Dream

In a way, Squidward was the real main character. It was all about his torment in a dead end job, and his broken dreams of becoming a successful artist. Having his dreams fulfilled would make a perfect end... oh yeah, there should also be a side plot where plankton steals the formula (successfully).

Squidward's career fianlly kick in, so Squidward quit working the Krusty Krab and move somewhere FAR away from Spongebob and Patrick, but Spongebob became sad and begged Squidward to stay, so it's up to him to make him stay and be a good neighbor
