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

It's ok. I just didn't like season 7 or season 8 that much. The rest were good. - Therandom

Season 6 was the worst! NO good episodes. All were either boring or just terrible - sryanbruen

I hated season 7 and 8, but after that it was good.

Actually Syran season 6 had Sand Castles In The Sand, a great episode.

Actually, gravity falls used went to okay to DOWN RIGHT AMAZING. So nah..

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

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.

3 The new movie was amazing

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

I prefer the first movie

No it wasn't. Were they on drugs creating that time travel scene? It isn't bad but it isn't good.

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

Squid Baby sucks! - Mariomaster63

Is this list a joke?

5 New Spongebob still gets nominated for Emmys

This 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

His point was that you should not judge something based on the awards they win. He also used the word "if", meaning he is not saying they actually win awards - themets05

Just because its nominated doesn't make it good

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

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

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.

Baloney it did change, for the WORSE! It got a bad case of flanderization around season 5. The good news is some episodes were good or ok, and now they're getting better. Let's face it, Zeus and them were better off in their original departments.

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

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

Actually, I agree. But seasons 7-8 were not good... NOT GOOD AT ALL...

Gonna admit, it IS better than Teen Titans Go... - mattstat716

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

Um... Okay?

9 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!

Funny joke.

10 Good Animation

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

The Contenders

11 It's still just as hilarious

@Disney1994 can't you detect sarcasm at all

Like the doorbell gag from Pets or Pests! - Puga

Don't forget food con castaways funny

Roller Cowards was amazing!

12 There are some good episodes
13 It's the same SpongeBob
14 It's still the same lovable sponge

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

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).

16 Stephen Hillenburg approved of modern SpongeBob episodes

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