Best Spongebob SquarePants Season 5 Episodes

The Top Ten

1 Krabs à la Mode

This is my favorite episode of season 5, a little bit better than Roller Cowards. Roller Cowards should be at #2 not Friend or Foe although Friend or Foe is a great episode too. This season has A LOT of great episodes, but this one is just the best.

I like this episode so much. One of my favorite episodes of the series. Should be #1.
P.S. Roller Cowards should be #2 not Friend or Foe (Friend or Foe was great though)

This Episode Feels Like A Pre - Movie Spongebob Episode It Feels Like The Writers Though Everything Out From The Story To The Characters Comedy And Even Animation. It's A Fantastic Episode That I Wouldn't Even Mind It If It Was The Series Finale It's That Good Defiantly A Classic Episode That's Worth Checking Out

Better than Roller Cowards

2 Friend or Foe

It tells the truth behind Mr. Krabs and Plankton.

This episode was (surprisingly) partially written by Zeus Cervas - Goatworlds

3 Roller Cowards

Better than Krabs A La Mode.

Good for season 5!

This one is a little bit better than Krabs A La Mode and is the best in season 5.

I went on the rock bottom plunge at the mall of america in MN, which is based of of this episode!

4 Sing a Song of Patrick

Funniest modern SpongeBob. Uses Patrick's stupidity right.

This is in my top ten Spongebob episodes! - Gangem

5 New Digs

It has an interesting concept. - IcetailofWishClan

I thought this one was pretty funny! Liked the ending too

This should be higher'

Pretty Decent

6 Spy Buddies

The bad song plankton plays to drag Krabs's customers away is hilarious! The self-destruct and ending is great too! Season 5 is my favorite post-movie season along with the newest ones (10)

This episode is just so funny and original (for Spongebob), also the ending is great!

My favorites from this season are krabs a la mode, new digs, sing a song of patrick, rise and shine (you read correctly), spy buddies and the krusty sponge.

7 Goo Goo Gas

A really funny episode. - toy

8 The Donut of Shame

I like sing a song of Patrick the most,but this needs to be higher.Aside from it being funny,this episode is quite heart warming,because Patrick really wants to eat the donut,but doesn't because he THINKS he stole it from spongebob.

9 The Two Faces of Squidward

One of the better fifth season episodes

10 The Battle of Bikini Bottom

One of the few that gets gross humor correctly. - Goatworlds


The Contenders

11 The Krusty Sponge

Best Of The Bunch!

12 Pest of the West

Pest of the West forever! :3)

I Really Like this Special

13 The Krusty Plate
14 Banned in Bikini Bottom

Did you just call me Squidwart? Other than this line I don't like this episode.

15 Breath of a Fresh Squidward

Why is this episode so high of the list? Mr Enter named it the worst Squidward Torture episode ever. My least favorite Squid Torture episode ever is Squidward in Clarinetland, but this one is TRULY TERRIBLE. Should be at the bottom.

What!? This episode is horrible! (In my opinion of course) - KingFab

Why is this episode on this list

16 20,000 Patties Under The Sea

Probably because it was lazy, poorly paced, and forgettable.

The best part was Plankton insulting a family. Why is this below Breathe of a Fresh Squidward anyways? - Hellohi

This Is Very Underrated, But It Was Good For Season 5 - ChiefMudkip

Great episode - Gangem

17 Rise And Shine
18 Blackened Sponge

underrated - nonamegame

This should be in the top ten. - Goatworlds

Make It Higher - ChiefMudkip

19 The Original Fry Cook

What this episode was the 2nd best in season 5

This is the worst episode I ever watched on T.V.! This episode is the most depressing episode on the show

20 Money Talks

Money:spend us, spend us

21 Bucket Sweet Bucket

This has to be the most underrated episode of all of spongebob mainly because it’s a very good episode it deserves a lot of attention but it get nothing, I find this episode funny and very charming for a post movie episode - 015804

To love a paty waiting money talks night light battle of bikini bottom atlantis squrepantis original fry Cook krusty sponge Good ol whathisname pest of the West two faces and breath of fresh squidward these are better then this Episode? I don't think so... - Yina

35 Waiting

I hate this episode.

36 To Love A Patty

Spongebob falling in love with a Krabby Patty and ignores his friends, kills clams and goes one a date with the Krabby patty? Ya, Spongebob definitely got what he deserved in this one.

37 Picture Day
38 SpongeHenge

I like this one a lot

I find this episode to be alright, I think everyone's a little too hard on it. Squid's Visit is way creepier.
