Top 10 Reasons Why SpongeBob SquarePants Sucks These Days


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Little Yellow Book

The only things that I hate about this episode are Squidward's punishment and his refusal to care about being punished. If I'm him, I'd get back at SpongeBob and all those other Bikini Bottomites by killing all of them literally. And if I have more haters, I'd kill them too.

As for you, Anonymousxcxc, I agree with most of what you posted. If you ask me, those fish who retaliated at Squidward were being worse than him. Plus, they didn't care that SpongeBob pestered Squidward all this time nonstop. And those make me wish that the octopus slaughtered all of them without being punished. If I'm a police officer and I see his revenge, I'd reward him big time. Same thing if I'm a court judge.

Squidward reading SpongeBob's diary, that was just cruel. - Minecraftcrazy530

Dude yeah that was mean, but not cruel. Plus Squidward didn't deserve that harsh of a punishment. Bikini Bottom needs to burn in eternal hellfire because after the movie that place became sickening. Just save Squidward, Plankton, Gary, and maybe even Karen. - Anonymousxcxc

This is not a list of the worst episodes!

I hate this episode,first of all didn't the fish see SpongeBob while they were reading the diary with Squidward before they realized it was his?

42 Richard Pursel is Working On the Show

And the stuff he was written on the show, A Pal for Gary and Pet Sitter Pat aren't EVEN THE WORST THINGS THAT HE HAS EVER WRITTEN! The worst thing he ever wrote was... REN SEEKS HELP!

Who Would Hire The Dolores Umbridge Of Cartoons!?

They really let the dude who wrote Ren seeks help work on a kids cartoon. Smart move Nickelodeon smh - FlakyCuddles43

43 Suicide

Which is totally bad, especially for kids' programs.

Plankton tried to do it, and so did Squidward. Worst Move EVER!

44 Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and Plankton Are Overused

Seems like it. But I'd like the series if Squidward and Plankton actually get their revenge on SpongeBob, Patrick, and Mr. Krabs, and be rewarded for it instead of punished.

45 Overly Detailed Animation

I liked the older animation more than the newer one.

46 Unoriginal Ideas

They rip off other episodes they made, Krusty Dogs is a rip-off of Bossy Boots

47 The characters set bad examples

Crying solves your problems even less than singing. - Kieran Stark aka The Ultimate Daredevil, a man who is actually happy to prefer Disney over Nickelodeon

You do realize that not every show need to have MORALS. - LordDovahkiin

48 The Show Won't End

Even though I like SpongeBob, I think it should get cancelled because most parents these days will not let their kids (regardless of age) watch SpongeBob. Fewer people are watching SpongeBob now than in the past. Many teens and adults (especially women) think SpongeBob is childish, and many parents think it is too immoral and adult-oriented for their kids to watch. You might think that ending SpongeBob would make Nickelodeon go out of business, but Nick can always use the Fairly Odd Parents, The Loud House, or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as their dominant cartoon. - anonygirl

I like this show and it was my entire childhood in the late 90's early 2000's but newer episodes are lackluster to me. I have an idea on how the show should end. SpongeBob gets another job. Squid moves to another city. Mr Krabs is arrested. Plankton gets the Krusty Krab. Patrick moves back in with his parents and goes to school. Sandy drops the science crap and moves back to Texas. Pearl goes into foster care. And Ms Puff sues Mr And Mr. SquarePants.

You do realize that spongebob is a legal adult and Mrs. Puff can't sue his parents. - orangemo8

What should happen is that Sandy moves to Texas, Squidward moves to a place far away from Bikini Bottom, Mr. Krabs loses his job, Patrick becomes serious, Plankton controls another place in the Pacific Ocean, and SpongeBob, gets a job at the monkey cages at the Zoo.

I want it to end for good. But sadly the Nicktoons Studios just keeps producing more episodes to the point where it's no longer appealing. I wish that Stephen Hillenburg never made SpongeBob SquarePants. If I'm him, I'd cancel the show forever.

And the "what ever happened to SpongeBob? " face... Oh god not that.

Let's not forget about the suicide jokes and Gary abuse.

Don't forget the toenail scene

Ah, let's see, a character who wants to die, an animal that gets abused sometimes, "the Splinter", the toenail scene, and... -continues reading long list-

50 Zeus Cervas Is One of the Worst Writers

But he's a good animator. He was around since season 2.

51 Subliminal Messages Girl

Uhhh that was in season 2, troll

That's from a premovie episode

52 He Won't Go Away

I don't believe that Nickelodeon will go bankrupt just as I don't believe that it's returning to its good days. In fact, it's getting worse, especially with its excessive dependency on SpongeBob SquarePants. If I run that channel, Id kick every show that I don't ever want it to have off of it forever. And one of those programs is SBSP (SpongeBob SquarePants).

Well, if he goes away, then Nickelodeon would be bankrupt, at least it's returning to it's good days.

53 New Writers Suck
54 Kids Just Like New SpongeBob for No Real Reason Except He's SpongeBob

So maybe some kids like seeing Plankton trying to commit suicide because Mr. Krabs was terrorizing him, SpongeBob punishing Gary instead of Puffy Fluffy, and brutal scenes where a toenail gets ripped off (which gets slipped on, too.)

They watch too much of the show. KIDS NEED TO GROW UP FOR ONCE

If I'm a kid, I'd NEVER like SpongeBob no matter what.

And get this at school for the weekly attendance award we get, SpongeBob 'hosts' it. And the new kids at school screamed when he came on the screen:
Plus they've NEVER seen ANY of the episodes!

55 They Don't Put Their Hearts into it Anymore

Watch an old episode, and you can imagine the writers going, "Ooh, here's a good idea! Let's put it in an episode! "

Watch a new episode, and you can imagine the writers going, "We need an episode. Let's use this idea."

Well Spongebob is the cash cow for Nick, so it's understandable that the episodes are formulaic. Though in some episodes like Sandcastles in the Sand they seemed to put their heart into it.

56 No More Adult Jokes

I.E. "SpongeBob doesn't have any hair... or does he? "/The 13 naughty words/"Patrick, your genius is showing! " (Covers crotch) "Where? "/"Doubloons! Don't drop them! "/"Let's get naked! " "No, let's save that for when we're selling real estate!"

Nowadays the only ones I can think of are the d**k joke in SB vs. the Big One, the gay joke in 20,000 Patties, and the suicide jokes in OCM and AYHN, all of which are too stupid to qualify as either "adult" or "jokes."

You forgot the condom from The Play's The Thing, All the weiner jokes from "Krusty Dogs", and 20,000 Patties doesn't qualify as modern (season 5) - Goatworlds

Oh yes, there are still adult jokes. But that doesn't mean they're good because adult jokes are bad for children's entertainment.

Most little children won't know what it means. Older kids would be able to tell, if they listen closely. - LordDovahkiin

Why do you want adult humour in a children's show, aww is it nostalgia? Remember The Three Friends and Jerry, you know those boys with huge heads, they cancelled it because they thought it was inappropriate for kids to watch.

The thirteen naughty words… brings back good memories.

57 Only Good Character Is Tom Smith

Tom (the chocolate guy) isn't the only good character. Gary and Plankton are, too. Most of the time Squidward is.

Is Tom Smith the chocolate guy?

Who's Tom Smith?

58 Squidward Almost Hangs Himself

He did? See, this is how much I don't watch it anymore.

It's all because of SpongeBob even though I'm against suicide.

59 Krabs and the Krusty Krab Are In Every New Episode

All they care about now are the screaming and the sound effects

I hope they make an episode where spongebob loses his scream box

60 SpongeBob is Annoying

Oh please! He's beyond annoying. He's downright irksome. I just don't understand why he won't progress mentally. Instead, he regressed mentally like there's no tomorrow, which is worse than what happened to Ben Tennyson in the programs of Ben 10: Omniverse.

In the old seasons SpongeBob had child like qualities but he was still mature and the writers made him too much like a child.Spongbob also does his laugh way too much and it gets very irritating after many seasons of T.V. and 2 films.
