Top 10 Modern SpongeBob Episodes That Would Give Kids Nightmares

If you are a parent and you're reading this right now, I highly recommend you watch these episodes to see how truly inappropriate Spongebob Squarepants has gotten these days.

The Top Ten

1 The Splinter

This gave me nightmares

The entire episode is dedicated to trying to gross the viewer out as we get disturbing close-ups of SpongeBob's splinter, complete with swelling, irritation, and green puss oozing out of it. Definitely skip

2 A Pal for Gary

It's just a mess of grotesque animation and makes SpongeBob's into a complete ass towards Gary. And even when Gary is about to be eaten, SpongeBob STILL continues to treat Gary as the bully. Paul Tibbet, less of this please

A Pal for Gary rocked! I loved that episode!

3 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.

While most if the episode is innocent enough, the toenail scene in enough to make ANYONE cringe as we see SpongeBob drop the sofa leg on Squidward's tentacle and continue to push it in further as we see the toenail get squishes in until a chunk of flesh finally gets ripped off.

I like it but not the toenail incident - Officialpen

4 One Coarse Meal

Nightmares about killing yourself. This is the worst episode of SpongeBob in season 7, worst in the entire show. - Goatworlds

The episode is dedicated to Mr. Krabs torturing Plankton after finding about his fear of whales from a family flashback, and uses it to torture him phisically, mentally, make him filled with paranoia, give him nightmares, and even drives him to suicide. That's NOT ok Nick, by far the worst episode in modern cartoon history

Definitely - FerrariDude64

5 What Ever Happened to Spongebob?

Don't believe this? See the face! - Datguyisweird666

Would have been completely fine, but then, they pulled the face.

SpongeBob asks a stranger if He's ugly, amd we see a filthy, crusty, tiny-eyed closeup of SpongeBob with a snot bubble being blown from his nose

6 Squid's Visit

This is one of the creepiest things I've ever seen come out of this show.
Also, is it just me, or do the self-portraits look a bit off in this episode? - Rocko

Top three should be 3. Are you happy now? 2. The splinter 1. THIS
This should not be on a kids show, ever.

7 Face Freeze

The entire episode is dedicated to SpongeBob and patrick having disturbing faces, complete with close-up detail

How is THIS lower than Battle to Bikini Botom?

8 Planet of the Jellyfish

This episode gave me a nightmare once and the episode was reborn in my dream THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE MAKE THAT FOR KIDS LIKE SERIOUSLY? Does the creator want Kids to get scared out of their minds. I watched this well HALF of it and after that I said "Let's pretend I never saw that.".

At the end patrick says hold the mayo and there is scary music with a card saying the end? - RockStarr

This will scare kids! P.S it's the episode AFTER "Are You Happy Now? ".

-episode ends-
Me:... Well, let's pretend that didn't happen. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

9 Wormy

It is not modern, but it should be on here. - Datguyisweird666

This is from 2001 lol - SonicAdam

That's not a Modern episode.

The episode is mainly criticized for the closeups of the horseflies

10 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.

The Contenders

11 Band Geeks
12 Fear of a Krabby Patty

You are not putting even a SINGLE Season 10 episode on here. You are just putting Seasons 4 - 9. They are not modern seasons, but they are are BAD.

13 To Love a Patty
14 InSPONGEiac

Yeah. No sleep for me. - Rocko

15 Toy Store of Doom

Not scary to adults, but I can see how it could affect the younger kids.

How is this creepier than are you happy now?

16 The Battle of Bikini Bottom

What? Why? - Goatworlds

The episode is dedicated to the battle between filthy amd clean with SpongeBob amd patrick rolling around in dumpsters amd patrick using Krabby patties as shows. Not so much disturbing as is filthy

17 Are You Happy Now?

The suicide innuendo is actually really freaky. Not to mention the ending with Squidward ripping up copies of Spongebob with a chainsaw. - Rocko

That episode is literally not happy. While the suicide-like scenes weren't directly attempts (unlike One Coarse Meal), it doesn't take a psycho to see that it's a suicide innuendo. :I But then again, 2 fish killed themselves with a hook in Something Smells, even though I like that episode. - Cesium

Suicide jokes. That's it. - lavashooter

18 The Gift of Gum
19 The Sewers of Bikini Bottom
20 SquidBob TentaclePants

This was an older one - Goatworlds

The episode isn't too bad other than the fact that squidward amd SpongeBob are merged together. However in the last couple of minutes, the seperation machine malnfunctions and causes Squidward, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob, Patrick, and Pearl to become merged into this grotesque blob

21 Nasty Patty
22 The Two Faces of Squidward

I added this because on the wiki, it says it feared a lot of kids! - Datguyisweird666

23 SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis
