Best Post-Sequel SpongeBob Episodes


The Top Ten

1 Mimic Madness Mimic Madness

The sad irony is that there's one person who still thinks SpongeBob hasn't improved, and it isn't the person with Modern SpongeBob sucks as his username. Of course, I do agree SpongeBob and other long-runners can't last forever, but for the mean time, while some episodes don't meet the golden Pre-Movie seasons, they're at least a significant improvement over the Post-Movie seasons and some episodes are even good in their own merit. Sure, there's a few stinkers here and there, but thankfully NOT as much as the Post-Movie seasons. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Feels like an old episode of SpongeBob. I really had fun with this one. - truespongebobfan

ALL of these episodes suck! They all share the same overexaggerated faces and the animation is awful! Nobody should like these!

Dude, stop controlling what other people think. I can see why you wouldn't like the newer seasons, but that doesn't give you the right to be intolerant. - IcetailofWishClan

Post Sequel (with few bad episodes) is better than Post movie (with a lot of bad episodes)

2 Burst Your Bubble Burst Your Bubble

This time around, it's not SpongeBob getting behind the wheel, but Mrs. Puff getting behind the bubble. Love it! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Great episode. It was so entertaining.

This episode is actually pretty gokd - Worksponge

S3+S2+S1+Best of S4 - JosiahDBoss

3 Bulletin Board Bulletin Board

An amazing episode. There is a bunch of comedy thrown into this episode, and the idea of combining the whole community of Bikini Bottom onto a board, like the internet, is a cool concept. Great idea, and awesome episode!

I could see this episode rivaling "Skill Crane." This could easily fit in S2-4. - Worksponge

My favorite post-sequel episode. There’s so much pre-movie like humor here. - Tyler730

4 Patrick! The Game Patrick! The Game

Besides "What's Eating, Patrick? ", this is my favorite 2015 episode. Patrick struggling to create an enjoyable game is a nice idea, and Spongebob and Sandy being supportive and having fun is nice to watch.
Squidward, on the other hand, is just obnoxious the entire time. From doubting Patrick to ridiculing him and making sarcastic comments all the time. Fortunately, both Pat and Sandy get fed up with him.

The episode isn't perfect, but it's mostly very enjoyable. Also, Spongebob (who doesn't get mad at Squid at all and just have fun) technically gets a drivers license in the game. - Svampbob164

My favorite season episode 9 is this one. It told a great story and Had a great premise!

I'm sorry, but this episode legally never should've exist. This is the have-to-hate, just because, post-sequel SpongeBob episode. Another Patrick's a prick/Squidward Torture Porn. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I feel HORRIBLE for Squidward. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

It was very funny and had a lot of good jokes, especially from Squidward.

5 Lame and Fortune Lame and Fortune

Similar to a lot of other Nick shows but great - Worksponge

6 Mermaid Pants Mermaid Pants

Never thought I'd see the day where Squidward could actually pull off playing a villain role so well and getting so attached it too! Got to thank Mr. Krabs for making this episode's plot possible with his love for comic books. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

They actually did an entire episode about cosplaying... and it was glorious!

Best superhero episode since VI: the Motion Picture.

7 Tutor Sauce Tutor Sauce

Mr krabs is actually being nice in this episode all he wants is to teach spongebob to drive and he does despite all the damage and money he knows its gonna cost him

I love this episode... One of my favorites of the series - Worksponge

8 Feral Friends Feral Friends

An awesome Sandy episode! And not to mention the french narrator having a major role! Who expected that? Exactly, nobody! - Svampbob164

Absolutely amazing episode. Felt VERY Season 2 to me. - Tyler730

One of my favorite SpongeBob episodes. - Badpun

9 Factory Fresh Factory Fresh

It's now called Goodbye Krabby Patty? Still good though - Tyler730

Overall good episode.

10 Unreal Estate Unreal Estate

Who lives in a hot pepper under a chicken Parmesan hero under a banana under a hot pepper in a chicken Parmesan hero in a banana? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Worst lyrics to a SpongeBob theme song EVER. Sorry, but SpongeBob is NOT ever improving. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I myself and others could easily see this in Seasons 1-3... - Worksponge

Probably my favorite post sequel - NostalgiaMonkey

Wow we get so many fourth wall breaks in this episode.
It just doesn't exist anymore.]!

The Newcomers

? The Krusty Slammer
? Girls' Night Out

Easily one of my, if not the most, favorite episodes of the show. - IcetailofWishClan

The Contenders

11 Squid Noir Squid Noir

This episode feels very Pre-Movie in a way...I love the jokes, visual gags, and story. It is completely a good episode. That Bubble Bass vs. SpongeBob scene is ICONIC though! - Worksponge

It was cool with the you bring the color thing - Pieclone

The voice actor for Squidward said in an interview that this episode, along with Band Geeks and Dying For Pie, was one of his favourites.

12 The Sewers of Bikini Bottom The Sewers of Bikini Bottom

S2+S3 and get this masterpiece. Everything is perfect in this episode. - Worksponge

13 Snail Mail Snail Mail

Reminds me a bit of season 1 (my favorite season).

Good episode. Nice action...that's it - Worksponge

Abysmal action. Reminds me of season 6 - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

14 Sold! Sold!

My one problem with this episode is the ending. I just found it pointless.

15 Teacher's Pest Teacher's Pest

Well, I'm just glad Mrs. Puff didn't go to jail or suffer a horrible fate in this episode... Also, the ending really got me by surprise the first time I watched it. No joke. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This one is considered "Boating Buddies done right", and I gotta say: it is! Very funny and creative! - Svampbob164

16 SpongeBob's Place SpongeBob's Place

This one is funny

17 Lost In Bikini Bottom Lost In Bikini Bottom

I haven't seen any of these. Damn I need to get back to it - bobbythebrony

I think the eras should be ranked like this:
1. Pre-Movie: 10/10
2. Post-Sequel: 9/10
3. Post-Movie: 4/10 - Badpun

This is the first Post-Sequel SpongeBob episode. - Badpun

Great episode! - KalloFox34

18 Pineapple Invasion Pineapple Invasion

This one should be #1 because its got a clever plot and it is a high-larious episode - cadespencer

Like a mix of a S3+S7 episode and you get this.. - Worksponge

19 Food Con Castaways Food Con Castaways

OK...those Squidward and the Flying Snail scenes were funny though. Way different from club spongebob - Worksponge

20 Krusty Katering Krusty Katering
21 Plankton Retires Plankton Retires
22 Sharks vs. Pods Sharks vs. Pods

Different from SpongeBob and funny - Worksponge

23 The Whole Tooth The Whole Tooth

Squidward totally deserved what happened to him at the end this episode feels like a season 4 one - cadespencer

It's called The Whole Tooth - Tyler730

OK Suds and all... - Worksponge

24 Spot Returns Spot Returns

This episode is hilarious

THIS is how you do a sequel episode. Toodles 💕 - Worksponge

25 What's Eating Patrick? What's Eating Patrick?

This is, for a literal fact, the last good SpongeBob episode ever produced. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

It's not a fact, kid. It's an opinion. And my opinion is that you're wearing nostalgia goggles. - KalloFox34

Man how is this not being voted for?

Very nice episode! Who could not like the story! - Worksponge

The 3rd best Spongebob episode OF ALL TIME

26 Spin the Bottle Spin the Bottle

Extremely underrated. Deserves more praise. - Tyler730

This one is Highlarious

27 Plankton Gets the Boot Plankton Gets the Boot

This is one of the funniest episodes of the series!

28 My Leg!

Gosh this is a LEGendary episode, Ik that Mimic Madness is the best post-sequel but I'm gonna give this one I added a vote for being my favorite season 11 episode, if there's a bad part, there's the sister episode it was paired with, the stINKer INK lemonade episode. - BlueBobYT

I don't think I've seen a more comedic deconstruction of a fictional character than our boy, Fred Rechid. Deconstruction anime doesn't have anything on a phenomenal episode like this. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

29 Squid Plus One Squid Plus One

I actually hate this episode. Didn't like Squidward at all in this one. - Svampbob164

It was so nice to see Squidward happy it made me happy.

S6+S1 and you get this - Worksponge

30 Pull Up A Barrel Pull Up A Barrel

Great story, comedy and everything but one thing iss and the Squirrel isn't wearing her helmet..😯 - Worksponge

31 Trident Trouble Trident Trouble

Good episode - Worksponge

32 Company Picnic Company Picnic

Read TET - Worksponge

33 CopyBob DittoPants CopyBob DittoPants

I didn't even like S4

S3-S4 type of episode - Worksponge

34 Krabby Patty Creature Feature Krabby Patty Creature Feature

A little creepy, but fun and good overall episode.

35 Sanctuary! Sanctuary!

Different...good. Weird though - Worksponge

36 The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom

Dude, this NEEDS more votes. Probably the best stop-motion special since It's a SpongeBob Christmas!. Check out my review on why I like this episode. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Best Halloween Episode since Scaredy Pants

37 Bottle Burglars


38 Out of the Picture Out of the Picture

This episode is way to overhated. I like it - Tyler730

I love this episode. Rock Bottom gets a return, but the only thing is, how Mr. Krabs acted. He was the only bad thing that happened in the episode. But, he gets his payback so I'm good! The overall atmosphere is awesome! - Worksponge

Very overhated episode. The episode has a very pleasent atmosphere and Spongebob keeps Squidward out of trouble is nice to see. Not to mention they have a party in Rock Bottom!
It's a very funny episode. - Svampbob164

I still love Rock Bottom too.

39 The Executive Treatment The Executive Treatment

This was a hilarious episode. - KalloFox34

I don't know like... - Worksponge

This is probably in my top 10 favourite episodes, I just find it really funny, and very easily rewatchable

40 Married to Money Married to Money

It is good that sea bears back, but this is one of my least favorite post-sequel episodes.

Sea Bears are back! Great reference to The Camping Episode - Tyler730

41 The Incredible Shrinking Sponge The Incredible Shrinking Sponge
42 Man Ray Returns Man Ray Returns
43 Larry the Floor Manager Larry the Floor Manager
44 Pat the Horse Pat the Horse

Honestly this episode was BAD! There’s no humor. It’s just Patrick pretends to be a horse and nothing else. The race was okay, but it doesn’t save this episode. Season 11 may be good but this is a massive dud. I respect your opinion if you enjoyed it. - Tyler730

45 Ink Lemonade Ink Lemonade

No definitely not this one!

I find it to be an average bad episode. But I will admit that it is on my top 50 least favorite episodes. - IcetailofWishClan

Too much squidward torture and gross out humor

I hear the episode is awful - KalloFox34

46 SpongeBob LongPants SpongeBob LongPants

S5 type episode and it is really good...different - Worksponge

47 Larry's Gym Larry's Gym

Wrong one ^" anyways SB is cool when he's strong... - Worksponge

48 Sandy's Nutmare Sandy's Nutmare

Great humor and comedy but weak premise - Worksponge

49 Life Insurance Life Insurance

I like this episode. It honestly feels like an episode from Season 3 or 4. - Svampbob164
