Saddest SpongeBob SquarePants Episodes

One of my better recent ideas. SpongeBob episodes that are really sad.

The Top Ten

1 Have You Seen This Snail?

This has a DOMINANT lead of 25% of the votes (highest I've ever seen) so sad, it shows how long they have been together and how Gary means way more to Spongebob than just his pet.

This episode brought me to tears. - GalacticBunny

Garry I now I know, I was wrong I messed up and now your gone. - Ilikegames

Too cool to forget, come back 'cause we are family GARY COME HOME :(:(:(:(

The Episode Is Terrible But Just Listen To The Daytime Drama Music Heigh Pitch I Couldn't Hold It In I Cried Like A Baby It Took Me Ages To Get Better I Hate The Episode But Spongebob Preached A Marvellous Piece.

Patrick is a jerk in this episode

Hands down the worst pre movie episode. I found out my friend left me for college. I saw this episode and it just hit me out of nowhere. There is a difference between emotional and depressing. Yes, Have you seen this snail is the saddest spongebob episode, but it's more emotional than depressing. Yes it's pretty depressing because of Spongebobs constant mourning over Gary. But there are very charming moments as well. Dumped on the other hand is 1000000% DEPRESSING! SpongeBob crying while holding the soap was so sad I teared up until the ending. This is the most depressing episode of the show. Is one of the worst episodes on television history!

3 Welcome to the Chum Bucket

It was sad that plankton separated Mr Krabs and spongebob and the song its just a grill is a really emotional song

It's pretty disturbing to see Patrick have a mental breakdown and try to hurt Spongebob. It's made even more disturbing with the music box theme in the background. It's a side of Patrick we rarely see.

This episode shows how much spongebob's friendship means to Patrick. Without it, Patrick is lost and his sadness causes him to go insane. This shows Spongebob means the world to him.

5 Dying for Pie

The sadder undertones were more evident in this episode when you grow older, and as someone who has loved SpongeBob since a toddler, I now realize how depressing this episode truly can be. SpongeBob cries Squidward a sweater made of tears and does all these friendly things for his squid neighbor. Unfortunately, Squidward requested a pie made from a bomb factory in the meantime. Squidward built a wall in between the two when they watched the sunset, and Squidward begins to regret making the wall, thinking SpongeBob was dead.

This episode... where do I begin on this one? Okay, this one starts off lighthearted when SpongeBob makes mundane yet quite funny pranks. Squidward gets tired of it pretty quickly and makes a prank of his own that would inflict SpongeBob much harm. After that prank, SpongeBob falls into a depression where he refuses anyone’s contact. The people of Bikini Bottom were irrefutably upset at Squidward, and left the Krusty Krab. Squidward does end up regretting it after seeing how much pandemonium he set up, and all the painful traces. He then tries to apologize to SpongeBob, only to find out in the end that he (SpongeBob) had been staging his depression this whole time, when he had finally apologized.
