Top 10 Reasons Why Modern SpongeBob Isn't Bad

The Top Ten

1 People just hate it for the sole reason that it's new

Not true actually

It Sucks!

This list talks about Seasons 9B, 10 and 11. Spongebob airs less bad episodes now, thank god Hillenburg is back

The only reason why I hate it is because of the original writer for Spongebob that left. This writer left for a while, which is why the new seasons are horrific and not like old Spongebob at all. The writer came back around the time season 11 was going to start, which is why it’s okay now

2 The new movie was amazing

The new movie was better than the old. The old movie, though a guilty pleasure of mine, is just a lame Finding Nemo/Pixar knockoff the time it came out. When making a T.V. show movie, you gotta go for it. "Sponge out of Water" went for it!



True part 1 is better but part 2 is still good - icefurl

3 They hate all new episodes just because two 2010 episodes were bad

But One Coarse Meal and A Pal For Gary WERE bad and the Splinter was kind of bad too, and people are afraid more bad ones will happen. - MarioMaster101

I don't get why people complain about these episodes and always say that they are the worst. They are both horrible but not the WORST. My worst episode is Pet Sitter Pat.

Chior Boys and SpongeBob You're Fired is worst then One Corse Meal, and A Pal for Gary

4 "Squid Baby" was one of the best episodes ever

It's kind of stupid, but I still found it funny. - RalphBob

Best episodes ever? You have got to be kidding me. This weird squidward torture fetish-like episode pales in comparison to even I'm With Stupid. - SammySpore

Maybe it was so bad it was funny (though I've never watched it, but I don't want to) - PageEmperor

Squid Baby sucks! - Mariomaster63

5 It has barely changed at all, people just like to exaggerate things

It has changed. You can very clearly see that almost everyone in the show except Plankton, Gary and Squidward have changed and not in a good way, especially Patrick. - 3DG20

I agree with this! - Svampbob164

There was almost no suicide in old SpongeBob (The only exception was when SpongeBob strapped a bomb to himself unless Gary took a bath). Now they're treating suicide like it's hilarious, usually in episodes involving Zeus Cervas. And they're also using these: Animal abuse & neglect, paraphilia, dog consumption, disgusting humor, hypocrites, extreme jerks, making fun of people with various disabilities, and now this show is completely corrupted and unfunny as of season 6. This show now seems like a show that would be on Adult Swim or Comedy Central, and not the good kind, either. - Goatworlds

These types of comments are the examples of exaggeration the list gave. - poopmckenzie

Have you seen episodes like boating buddies and the little yellow boom

They completely change the likability of the characters by making them not even act like themselves but what the plot wants them to act like for the sake of the episode.

6 It's still better than any other monstrosity on children's networks these days

This one is true. - 3DG20

No, it isn't.

My username states the obvious, but I agree. Even Modern SpongeBob is one of the only good shows on Nickelodeon left. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I mean, yeah. It sucks now, but it's still the best thing currently airing on Nick, which shows just how bad the network is now. Avoid seasons 6-8 like the flu. But it's still better than Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, Fanboy and Chum Chum, Rabbids Invasion, How to Rock, Victorious, Bella and The Bulldogs, The Haunted Hathaways, The Thundermans, Bucket and Skinner's Epic Adventures, and way more Nickelodeon crap. - Goatworlds

7 The fact that some people hate it so much leads real fans to believe they don't even watch it anymore

Um... Okay?

8 New Spongebob still gets nominated for Emmys

This doesn't make it good

Just because its nominated doesn't make it good

LOL! Modern SpongeBob still gets Emmys?! That's like saying if Justin Beiber or Nicki Minaj get awards, then they aren't bad! And yes, I know JB isn't that bad, but he is still bad! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Uh, what? How does it make it good? - Goatworlds

9 There are some good episodes

That's true. (Ie: Roller Cowards) - IcetailofWishClan

I really liked all the old and new episodes but some episode I just call bad like one course meal or the splinter also most episodes people hate I like. Like spongbob your fired, bubble buddy returns, and garys new pet

10 It still teaches great morals

I loved this show when I was younger, and I never, ever was taught bad examples from it because I knew it wasn't meant to be taken seriously. People on here say it's "like an Adult Swim Show". How? Have you guys ever watched Family Guy? Nothing even like SpongeBob. Way too sensitive.

Oh yeah? One Coarse meal had TWO really bad morals: "If all else fails, just kill yourself" and "Drive your rival to suicide to save your business". Or the one from A Pal for Gary: "If your pet is scared of the other pet, scold the frightened pet". Last, the one from SpongeBob, You're Fired: "Being jobless is the best thing ever" - Goatworlds

Yes kids, when you fall in love with your favorite snack, just murder animals. And when you fail, just suicide. And when your dog/cat/bird or anything gets attacked, you blame it on your pet for no reason at all. Great morals!

The Contenders

11 It's still just as hilarious

I Hate This List.

Like the doorbell gag from Pets or Pests! - Puga

@Disney1994 can't you detect sarcasm at all

Roller Cowards was amazing!

12 Good Animation

Post sequel episodes, right?

I think that spongebob has graet animation. I have never seen an episode with out bad Animation

Nah, the animation got a little stiff, kind of like how Family Guy got stiff and became faster - Goatworlds

Wanna see a good example of T.V. animation? check out "It's a Spongebob Christmas" - poopmckenzie

13 Stephen Hillenburg approved of modern SpongeBob episodes

Hopefully it will still be good after he died

You can trash the modern episodes whatever you like but if Stephen Hillenburg TRULY hated them, they never would've existed.

14 The Splinter is actually pretty funny

It's over hated



15 Many good episodes

Plankton's Pet (a lot of people seem to like that one, and I agree, it didn't end on a Status Quo and it was actually nice to see Plankton only getting punished when he's being evil... and I think it actually made dead baby comedy work in one scene because it was made clear that the baby was Plankton and Mr. Krabs knew), Sand Castles in the Sand (besides a bit of Patrick being a jerk, the episode was pretty entertaining), and Sing a Song of Patrick (Again Patrick does steal SpongeBob's money in the beginning but the rest makes up for it).

Because say modern Spongebob sucks, well they are talking about seasons 4 - 9. Shut up people that say Spongebob season 10 sucks. Season 10 is not THAT bad.

16 It's the same SpongeBob
17 It's still the same lovable sponge

I guess if crying over everything, torturing your neighbours and blaming the pet that’s being tortured counts as loveable, then sure. - 3DG20

I honestly love the new episodes as much as the older ones.
I get sad when people say they aren't as funny and just never watch it anymore..
It's still the same lovable sponge!

I'm actually beginning to think that Spongebob has some evil inner demon in him...

Little Yellow Book has this voice when spongebob goes "Whatever for? " and Demolition Doofus has "Oh dear. I believe I am in that fellows way. Well I guess I should hit the GAS HAHAA! "

He's creepy, when you notice it. - mattstat716

18 It has the old characters
19 It has it's mindless, enjoyable moments
20 One Coarse Meal is a very over hated episode

How is this a reason why it's good? - MarioMaster101

Here me out: Plankton blew up part of Mr. Krabs restaurant, physically hurt Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob, AND held them as hostages until they told him where the formula was! Not to mention, in the first SpongeBob movie, as Mr. Krabs is begging and crying for King Neptune to spare his life, Plankton is sitting comfortably, EATING POPCORN, and yelling "YES! " each time Neptune gets closer to killing him! Now, don't get me wrong, Mr. Krabs drove Plankton too far, but so many people forget the terrible things that Plankton did!
