Top Ten Spongebob Squarepants Season 1 Episodes

These are the ten greatest episodes from Spongebob's inaugural season.

The Top Ten

1 Pizza Delivery Pizza Delivery

The Krusty Krab Pizza for you and... ME! That was the best part! I also loved the part when SpongeBob was trying to get Squidward to eat the coral instead of the pizza. :) It was also really sweet when you kinda got to see a different side of Squidward when defended/comforted SpongeBob after the angry customer hurt his feelings. Favorite episode!

This is the most epic SpongeBob episode to ever set foot on the planet. It probably has the most memorable moments out of any of the SpongeBob episodes. One of my favorite parts was when Squidward said he didn't care about the costumer and the hurricane stopped and SpongeBob was like "HUGGH SQUIDWARD" best line ever. And it had the Krusty Krab Pizza song, which will be a song that will live as a legend forever.

This has got to be the best Spongebob episode from the first season. I have never met anyone who does not put this as there favorite episode from the first season. It sometimes ends up their favorite of all seasons. Every time I carry a pizza box I sing the krusty krab pizza song. Spongebob and squidward at their best describes this episode!

According to Laura and the rest of my family except for me, they think that this is a TERRIBLE episode. However, I LOVE this episode!

My favorite part is when Squidward reacts to the "FUTURE! FUTURE! " Everyone else in my family hates that part. The "Alone" quote makes Sean sad. I like that part, too.

This episode really has an interesting plot. It kept me drawn in the entire episode and there is a couple parts where I laughed so this episode is probably one of the best along with the top 2 (Help Wanted and Pizza Delivery)

Love this episode so much! FUTURE!

Whoever wrote their family thought this was terrible except for him/her what did they think was wrong with it,besides the caveman stars gums

3 Help Wanted Help Wanted

One episode to start them all...

PLEASE have this one be at least number 2 because not only being a pilot episode but being the episode that started it all and it will be the second best season 1 episode, also all of the main characters appear (except for sandy). And let's not forget about tiny tims song livin in the sunlight, lovin in the moon light

This was literally the first SpongeBob episode ever

Living in the sunlight, loving in the moonlight, having a wonderful time! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Most underrated spongebob episode ever. Also one of the best.

This episode should at least be number 3. This is such an iconic place and episode! It is REALLY FUNNY and REALLY GOOD!

Only 20th place? This was a masterpiece! Should be in the top 10. - Garythesnail

It's Awesome And A Top 3 Episode For Me It's Surreal Humour Is Just Top Noach And I Can't Find A Single Flaw What So Ever.

6 F.U.N. F.U.N.

The F.U. N Song, Do I have to say anymore?

F is for friends who do stuff together, you is for you and me, n Is for any where and anytime at all down here in the deep blue sea!

F is for fire that burns down the whole town U's for Uranium! Bombs! N is for no survival when you-- - Officialpen

Now, I'm a weaboo. All I do all day, everyday is watch anime, draw fan art or listen to Hatsune Miku. However, when I see anything about this episode, I get HOOKED with Spongebob (no pun intended). I'll leave it in my Blu-Ray player for months and watch it every night. I have up to Season 7 of SpongeBob on DVD, so I normally work my way through them all. You know what, I might put Spongebob in now!

F. Is For Friends Who Do Stuff Together U. Is For You And Me N. Is For Anywhere And Any Time At All Down In The Deep Blue Sea.

7 Jellyfishing Jellyfishing

The episode I grew up with loving the most. - mholland1997

I love the beginning of this episode (When they are running) This episode is great.

"Firmly grasp it in your hand"! - Oliversalinas500

Many people consider this "scumbob" and an inferior version of "Skill Crane" or "Just One Bite" because of Squid's torture but I don't.

Why? The same reason people like "I'm With Stupid" it's REALLY FUNNY!

This is one of the most funny episodes of all time!

8 Suds Suds

The part when SpongeBob suds gets worse by Patrick and Patrick gets his painful treatment in the end

In this episode, when SpongeBob says one of Patrick's treatments doesn't work, PATRICK TRIES SOMETHING ELSE. In The Splinter, he just gives SpongeBob attitude.

Patrick: The doctor is awful! You have to read old magazines in the waiting room

9 Ripped Pants Ripped Pants

My favorite thing about this episode is the song - Ajkloth

This should be higher on the polls!

Best season 1 episode it teaches kids that a joke can only be fun so many times and its song is so catchy and also teaches us that jokes can only be funny so many times like Sandy says Spongebob's song is true

This one is bad, one of the weaker of the season. The season had bad episodes and Meh episodes, those are:
Ripped Pants
Squeaky Boots (Wasn't really the boots, just the episode)
I Was A Teenage Gary
MEH (These are good, but just Meh):
Boating School
Mermaidman and Barnacleboy
MuscleBob BuffPants
Suds (Not as good as people say it is, but still good)
Texas (Same as Suds, not as good as people say it is, but good)
Neptune's Spatula
All the other episodes of the season are good episodes - Gangem

10 Texas Texas

Funniest episode ever. Spongebob and Patrick say bad things about Texas to get Sandy to follow them to her suprise party. Epic Episode!

I like Pizza Delivery more but Texas needs to be higher! - Garythesnail

Best of season 1. Memorable scenes, great quotes.

Sandy bitch

The Contenders

11 Naughty Nautical Neighbors Naughty Nautical Neighbors

This episode is funny, especially when SpongeBob and Patrick were getting verbal jabs at each other, thinking that they are doing this to each other.

Hey patrick, I heard there was a job opening at the pet shop, as some NEWSPAPER!

My favorite part is when SpongeBob and Patrick kept saying more soda.

One of the few times were squidward brought the torture to himself. Funny. Not the best but preaty good.

This episode is a Great One - Dreamformusic

Towards the end, this episode scared me but I got use to it

14 Bubblestand Bubblestand

How come it isn't in the top 10? It's a classic, and it introduces SpongeBob's and Patrick's love of bubble-blowing, which will become a big part of many later episodes. Plus I love the episode, the concept and the 'bring it around town' part.

Nick is not helping the people see the greatness in this episode, the last airing was over a year ago!

Time to bring it around town, bring it around town. - Connor360

How is this one not in the top 3?
It is so funny.

Bring it around town. - TristGamer

15 Opposite Day Opposite Day

This episode should be a lot higher! It's a classic!

I'm Squidward I'm Squidward Squidward Squidward I'm Squidward I'm Squidward Squidward Squidward

I can't explain it its such a good episode and this should be replacing the help wanted episode.

Lady: Your Squidward, Your Squidward, Your Squidward, I'm SQUIDWARD! Is There any other Squidwards I should know about?!
( Gary comes in with a Squidward nose)
Gary: Meow

16 The Paper The Paper

On my top 10 most underrated spongebob episodes, THIS IS NUMBER 1! This also one of my favorite episodes but is only shown once being the most every single year!

This is my all-time favorite episode. It is hilarious what SpongeBob can do compared to what Squidward can do. Squidward has no imagination! - xMagnoblade

The part where SpongeBob plays the paper like a clarinet is my favorite part! I play the clarinet and got criticized for it by my peers. They would often say "You sound like Squidward! " or "Why would you pick such a horrible instrument? " Honestly, this episode showed me that it's not a terrible instrument, it only sucks when Squidward plays it! Thanks SpongeBob and Mr. Paper!

Saw this episode when I was sick. It's funny and cool especially the Origami bit - Lunala

They were under his tongue the whole time. - Anonymousxcxc

Their are my car keys. - TheTopSheep

In my opinion this episode should be tied with the worst in the season along with "I Was A Teenage Gary". Everything was dull, and I was surprised that they failed at a simple plot in pre-season. Of course this is just my opinion

Witch one of you has my car keys under your tounge

18 Karate Choppers Karate Choppers

Amazing episode

What should be number at least number 10!

The best from season 1 - Linc

Wild animals can throw VERY wild parties

Remember: Don't let wild animals in your home
