Top Ten Spongebob Squarepants Season 1 Episodes

These are the ten greatest episodes from Spongebob's inaugural season.
The Top Ten
Pizza Delivery

Squidward doesn't completely hate SpongeBob. He's got some love for him and cares for his bro deep down inside.

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!

SB-129

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!

I really don't know what to choose for my actual vote. Pretty much all of these episodes have creative ideas and interesting plots - Phillip873

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

The first of the best, and my most memorable episode out of the entire SpongeBob SquarePants series. It showed the start of SpongeBob's life as a fry cook, the beginning of Steven Hillenburgh's greatest creation, and the very first, greatest, most memorable line ever, "I'M READY! "
May this episode live on in our hearts till the end of time.

F.U.N.

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!

Well duh it shows SpongeBob being sweet to villains and good guys and THE SONG ( F is for friends who do stuff together U is for U and me N is for nyewhere and nyetime at all down here in the deep blue sea) then plankton idea of fun cracks me up (f is for fire that burns down the whole town U is for uranium... Bombs n is for no survival WHEN YOU...) I just love it

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 is for uranium bombs N is for no survivors down here in the deep blue sea

Rock Bottom

This is not just your everyday darkness, this is advanced darkness. One of the best Spongebob lines of all time. This episode should be #2, only below Pizza Delivery.

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

Along with a very original premise, this episode is SO entertaining and enjoyable. There is some nice slapstick and gags here, most noticeable the vending machine gag and the tounge gag. Pretty underrated

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

Hall Monitor

This is an iconic episode it had me laughing throughout the entire episode

To later be ripped off by Patrick-Man. This episode is amazing. It might not be my favorite, but I chose this one so I could make the joke at the beginning of this comment. My favorite part was when Patrick accidentally dropped his ice cream cone and cried over it when Spongebob pointed it out. As somebody who's favorite thing is food, that is extremely relate-able, adding on to it already being funny.

My favorite sponge bob episode when I was about 5 or 6

I'm on patrol! I'm on patrol! I love that song.

Texas

This should be higher. Very funny and very creative storyline. One of my favorites in season 1

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.

Opposite Day

I Would go as far to say this is underrated. It is hilarious and entertaining, and is my second favorite season 1 episode, Rock Bottom in front.
"I'm squidward."

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.

Suds

I had a terrible sneezing fit all day which made my face hurt and I felt terrible all day and night! I was planning on watching this episode so that I could share the same pain with SpongeBob, but I forgot. (6/4/2020)

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

Ripped Pants

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

Whoever said that this episode sucks and that to love a patty, one coarse meal and a pal for gary rules needs to get flushed down the toilet.

I think this should be #1 by far this may be an oldy but it's still an unbelievable song
Make this #1 I need all your support please help me get this song #1!

Most people like this one. To be honest, I don't. It's boring. It's unfunny. And it does the same thing over and over again!

The Contenders
Jellyfishing

hello I'm a Chinese in my opinion SpongBob is a great cartoon and congratulations for its twenty birthday

"Firmly grasp it in your hand. Firmly grasp it. FIRMLY GRASP IT! "
Best moment in this episode. - SweetPenny

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.

Valentine's Day

A lot of memorable lines. My personal favorite line in this episode is "Heart on stick must die. "

This episode is a Great One - Dreamformusic

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

My personal favourite SpongeBob episode of all time - happyhappyjoyjoy

Culture Shock

Why is this not higher up! The end scene was hilarious!

Completely underrated from season 1. Gary's poetry, Plankton's magic, the infamous dance scene. Great stuff. My favorite from season 1

Number 1 culture shock - bolbi9

Second best from season one - Linc

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.

I really love this one, sad that no one talks about it

Sleepy Time

Hilarity at its best.

So Funny! Especially Pearl's dream

This one isn't Talked About All That much, But it's still pretty good - ChiefMudkip

I like this one. It's an underrated episode. - Anonymousxcxc

Karate Choppers

Amazing episode

What should be number at least number 10!

The best from season 1 - Linc

Love this episode - Linc

Jellyfish Jam

My favorite part of that whole episode was that entire SCENE! Season 1 is awesome!

Wild animals can throw VERY wild parties

My favorite part was when they broke Squidward's clarinet and burned it on fire third dancing around it that cracked me up so much I almost died

Remember: Don't let wild animals in your home

The Paper

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!

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!

Its too bad that the only reason this is only shown once a year is because its sister episode is Valentine's Day.

Pickles

"He's been hiding the pickles under his tongue this whole time! "
"There's the pickles from last time too! "
That line never fails to make me laugh.

Their are my car keys.

They were under his tongue the whole time.

And There's My Ride

Naughty Nautical Neighbors

Best episode of season one. Hugely underrated. We get the most focused exploration of the Spongebob-Squidward-Patrick dynamic of the entire series, Squidward fully deserves everything that happens to him (for once), and most importantly its hilarious all the way through

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.

Arrgh!

This is a really memorable episode and really funny. This episode should be number 2.

Possibly the most underrated episode in the season! This is top 15 material

The whole ship is underwater, sir

This episode is very funny, should be in top ten

Tea at the Treedome

It was so funny - AlexL

WATER! Pinky up, no pinky down! - lizard302

It was my favourite of the season until I started liking Hall Monitor more - Gangem

Patrick: Pinkey Out

Plankton!

Great episode, plus first appearance of Plankton. One of my favourites and favourite from season 1!

I'll settle for some fries!

Why is this one so low?

I went to collage!

Squidward the Unfriendly Ghost

I actually wasn't thrilled with this one, guys. I found the plot to be interesting, but not interesting enough, and there weren't too many good jokes in the episode. Don't get me wrong, it had a few funny gags, but not as hilarious as the other episodes. It's not a terrible episode, but there is definitely something lacking from this episode. And I think it's the pacing. A lot of this episode moves very slowly.

Come on guys! This one's amazing! "One watermelon fresh from the manure field your spookiness" Maybe not a memorable one it terms of moments but all thrown together easily makes it the best of the season!

Very underrated. - Datguyisweird666

I love it when patrick lands on clay squidwards face. lol!

The Chaperone

Do the Sponge!

NEWS:

"Many teens have died tonight doing a dance called the sponge..."

WHAT! Number 41! This is classic and is very funny - Gangem

This one is DEAD LAST. I hate this one. SO BORING! - Goatworlds

This should be no. 1! 43 is insulting :(
