Top 10 Reasons Why SpongeBob SquarePants Sucks These Days


The Contenders: Page 5

81 The Old Episodes Are Way Better Than the New Ones


82 Gross and Disturbing Humor

Examples - To Love a Patty, Fungus Among Us, House Fancy, Keep Bikini Bottom Beautiful, and Face Freeze.

Also that one face from "what ever happened to sponge bob? "

This probably should be Number One on the list. And it's one of the reasons why most humor no longer interests me these days. Therefore, I wish that Nickelodeon and maybe every other channel has more serious stuff on them.

83 Realistic Violence

Examples are the toenail scene from House Fancy, the eyebrow scene from Pineapple Fever, and the whole episode of One Coarse Meal.

84 Confused Morals

Not every show, or every episode in a show needs MORALS. - LordDovahkiin

85 Flanderization

SpongeBob: Now an annoying idiot that acts like a 7 year old.
Patrick: Admits he isn't dumb, and acts even less mature.
Mr. Krabs: Now an evil greedy craphole.
Squidward, Gary, and Plankton: Nothing happened, except Squidward is more of a jerk now.
Sandy: Annoying and stupid.
Bikini Bottomites: Idiots who overreact to every single thing that happens. - Goatworlds

86 Filler In a Eleven Minutes Episode

Ugh. I miss the days when it had plot.

87 He Ruined Patrick Forever
88 Bad Endings
89 Face Freeze Episode

Too much ugly faces - jbella9000

Yes, Hooky is good but this one sucks..

The episode of gross up close ups. My sister had night mares.

This episode made me sick.

90 Disturbing Implications

What if none of them were Jr? I like to think that.

91 Plot Holes
92 The New Character Design

The characters' new designs aren't as cartoonish as they used to be. SpongeBob is rectangular and he always has those chubby cheeks. Patrick always has that dumb baby tooth. The characters don't make funny faces anymore, their expressions are weird. (especially SpongeBob's)

Why doesn't Spongebob stretch anymore?

93 Patchy the Pirate Is Gone

Patchy the Pirate is the worst excuse for a pirate that I and (no doubt )a lot of other people have ever had the misfortune to see...I'm really glad the bum is out of the show now. He was a disgrace! If he somehow wound up on the Black Pearl, Captain Jack Sparrow would kick him overboard...LITERALLY! Even Davy Jones wouldn't want him! For that matter, nor would ANY other pirate! Patchy doesn't know the first thing about being a pirate! Good riddance to him!

In my opinion, that's a good thing. He was only funny in Christmas Who? And Shanghaied. After that, all his jokes were about how lame the special effects are and how creepy his obsession is, instead of how he isn't like a real pirate and the parodies of fans. I'm glad he's gone.

Oh, look. A positive about modern SpongeBob

Annoying or not, he was somewhat iconic.

94 Spongebob's Laugh Is Really Annoying

It used to be lovable, but now Nickelodeon has made SpongeBob's laugh so ANNOYING!

Only one other laugh can rival his: the Joker laugh.

I've grown to hate his stupid laff with a burning passion! He really gets on my nerves and I feel like punching his lights out!

This is on the list twice

95 The Only Thing That Spongebob Does Anymore Is Hang Out With Patrick

He doesn't even talk to anyone else that often anymore I mean GEEZ

96 Gary is a Selfish Snail That Does Not Care About SpongeBob

It's the opposite actually...

You switched SpongeBob and garys names around, and you said snail instead of sponge

A Pal For Gary proves that Gary does not really care about Spongebob :/ - TopTenHaters

97 The Characters Aren't Funny Anymore and Their Personalities Have Changed

"Sandy's hasn't changed much"

Yes it has. Used to, she mostly did karate and other tomboyish action. Now, she spends like 90% of the time working on lame science experiments.

Sandy's hasn't changed much

Sandy has not changed but she is not like even a main charactet

SpongeBob: An annoying crybaby that acts like a 2-year-old.
Patrick: Not only is he stupid and jobless, but he also destroys an entire building or city in one 11-minute episode.
Mr. Krabs: He now only cares about himself and money.
Sandy: A nerd who cares more about science than about karate or Texas.
Squidward & Plankton: Characters that are now victims of evil and torture and not perpetrators. In post movie SpongeBob, no matter how grumpy Squidward was or how evil Plankton was, you can express sympathy for them.
Mrs. Puff: Not much has changed, but she is harsher towards SpongeBob now than in the past.
Bikini Bottom Townspeople: Stupid airheads that make a big deal out of a small one.
Bikini Bottom Police: Idiots that think it's okay if a person kills an innocent person, but they arrest people for not inviting someone to a party. - anonygirl

98 The Bad Jokes

Now the show just has lame potty humor and its not funny at all! I hated the morbid suicide joke in "Are you Happy Now? "

99 The Music

Remember the good music, like Sweet Victory and Goofy Goober Rock? The music sucks so bad now, Like colonel Copper's song in "Hello Bikini Bottom."

What? I loved HBB!.

100 All SpongeBob Does Is Cry

Yeah! Especially when he tries to act tuff and when he gets hurt he starts crying! SpongeBob is such a pathetic wuss its not even funny!

ALL the SpongeBob characters in post-movie episodes cry and scream like toddlers actually. - anonygirl

A day without tears is an example of an episode.
