Top 10 Creepiest SpongeBob SquarePants Episodes

SpongeBob is for kids right? WRONG! There are some things in SpongeBob SquarePants that are just creepy. So here it is.
The Top Ten
1 Graveyard Shift

it's the best spongebob episode I can watch, I don't get scared of a unknown character with spatula coming into krusty krab just to kill spongebob and squidward.

Not only is it the creepiest SpongeBob aired episode it's also the best. I can watch this episode 1000,000 times and never get sick of it. The way squidward tells the hash slinging slasher story and all the thing that will happen when he arrives is like of a horror movie I also love the ending with the very creepy Nosferatu smiling at the kiddies.

I remember babysitting one Halloween night, and this episode called "Night Shift" came on, the one where Squidward makes up a story about "The Hash-Slinging Slasher" in true horror movie fashion. It even features an appearance by old-school Nosferatu at the end. I love this episode to this day, but the kid I was babysitting at the time pretty much shat his Underoos.

I remember when I was only 4 years old and I wasint scared at all but I was screaming TURN OFF THE T.V. when that creepy old man was in the closet. I had a nightmare that same night that I woke up and my closet door was open and I was the same old man flickering the lights... I woke up screaming and my parents burst through the door, I refused to sleep in my own bed for almost a week

2 Squidward In Clarinetland

Squidward gets eaten by a eagle head. He then lands inside of it, and is eaten by a huge Patrick. He ends up in a ping ball machine played by a huge Patrick. The patrick says " THE PRESSURE" and blows up. Squidward ends up in a room made of spongebob sponge and sees spongebob with his clarinet. Squidward wants it back, but spongebob laughs creepily. Luckily the phyc-out trip ends and squidward comes out of spongebobs locker of doom. what!

I totally think that this episode is trippy, scary, not so much, but just very very trippy... For that reason I believe that it should be number 1...its plenty creepy!

This episode didn't even make any sense. The beginning is meh, pretty boring, and then towards the end a TON of trippy crap starts happening. Honestly not sure what the writers were thinking with this one

Squidward in the mirror room is totally creepy I agree. But I always laugh when he wakes up in the locker... his face is funny!

3 Squids Visit

This episode deserves to be Number One on this list because of SpongeBob's ' obsession with Squidward. That should have gotten him (the sponge) arrested. Honestly, how would the octopus like it if he did stalked SpongeBob like there's no tomorrow?

As far as I'm concerned, I wish that Squidward killed SpongeBob and get rewarded for it. And so, I side with all those who are totally against this episode.

Just when you thought Scooby Doo, Where Are You and Rocko's Modern Life were disturbing enough for you then check this out this episode of SpongeBob will not only disturb you, it will give you nightmares with Squidward getting tortured, Sexual imagery, and a hellish scene where Squidward goes crazy, its crazy.

That part at the end where he's sitting at the table and he picks up some of the casserole that burnt his house down saying "Anyone for casserole?! " and staring at the screen with that freaky look. It's arguably one of the most disturbing moments in kid's T.V. history.

This one is unbelievably creepy, if you think about it. Hoe does SpongeBob even know all of the tiny little details about squidwards house? Even if he visited his house he wouldn't notice all of those things. :/ When did SpongeBob have the time to look at them?

4 SpongeHenge

When I was young I never thought it was scary. But now that I'm older..The Echoing Laughter at the end..Spongebob miserable since the Krusty Krab's been BURIED...So Creepy.

Oh god. Not this episode. This episode is the scariest episode in a bad way, the fact that spongebob was in the cave for a decade. Or the aliens at the end.

My brother told me this one was weird and I always believed him. The sun and moon with real faces and the aliens always bothered me when I was younger.

This episode was just creepy. I know it's meant to be parodying Army of Darkness, but I didn't know that when I first saw this episode when I was 12.

5 Rock Bottom

Boy was I terrified of this episode. My mum actually had to turn the telly off. Also when I was little I was scared of that episode when the furniture talk to him.

It was a creepy episode I mean... just a dark upside down place...of nothing besides crippling monsters I guess... for some reason we don't see that episode often

The music alone... Also the monsters, as a kid, I almost cried after this episode...

I liked this episode a lot as a kid and it is still one of my favorite episodes.

6 One Course Meal

How horrifying this episode! This goes to show that Mr. Krabs is a huge hypocrite by refusing to let go of his hatred for Plankton in that he tries to drive him (Sheldon) to suicide. The hell with that crab!

If anyone asks me, Plankton should retaliate at Eugene and get rewarded for it instead of punished.

Not only is this the worst spongebob episode, this is also one of the most sickening cartoon episodes I've ever seen. Jokes about suicide were never funny and never will be funny, especially on a show for kids.

The fact that it's a suicide in a kids' show isn't bad, but how they handled it is awful. They treat it as a joke & expect the audience to be rooting for Krabs, but in reality it caused many to hate him.

The nightmare unsettles me. Pearl is my favorite character! And Plankton committed suicide, and Mr. Krabs laughed. You're supposed to be rooting for Krabs here?

7 I Was a Teenage Gary

The intire episode was disturbing, seeing spongebob turned in to that hideous mutant was terrifying. How did that make it on air? That's worse then dark harvest on invader zim

The Squidward deleted scene is fake! Vincent Waller claimed it was never in the storyboard!

This isn't scary at all! It is actually funny!

This one's not even creepy. Plus it's good.

8 Jellyfish Hunter

It's creepy because mr Krabs is starting a animal cruelty club and during the night I had to literally turn off the T.V. because it was like way too creepy. In my opinion, it would be like number 5.

I loved this I haven't seen it in a while.

9 Squidbob Tenticalepants "SquidBob TentaclePants" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from Season 4. In this episode, SpongeBob and Squidward get morphed together.

The reason why it's the creepiest is because the fusions of squidward and spongebob are just disturbing. But that's not all. The worst one is the ending. UGH ITS NASTY! And that's why this episode is morbidly disturbing.

Typically, you'll see creepy scenes in modern SpongeBob, but this beats The Splinter. I mean, we all got splinters. But we never united into one body.

It 's the 10th creepiest episode of any cartoon... ever! Also, I'd rank it 8 or 9 on my worst Spongebob episode's list. Like, the ending was gross.

To me, it honestly reminds me of CatDog. But that ending is creepy and reminds me of the climax of AKIRA.

10 Gone
The Contenders
11 Planet of the Jellyfish

This makes me think of dark thoughts I will name why. The jellyfish look like aliens that I seen in a dream before that killed me. The pitch black eyes with white sparks is disturbing and makes me think of ink,(Squids/Octopus's) suction cups on my belly also. And the reason how everyone is infected makes me think that the Nazi's are coming back on this planet and trying too kill me.

This episode is about when a creepy alien comes to Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob notice that the Jellies hate Mayo. So Sandy and SpongeBob save the day with mayo to melt the Jellies and free the town of Bikini Bottom. What is REALLY creepy? The eyes!

A little parody of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, gives me the chills every time I watch this episode.

This was such a good, hilarious, and creepy episodes. One of my favorites

12 Not Normal
13 Mermaid Man vs SpongeBob
14 Krabby Patty Creature Feature

Just watched this episode and Teacher's Pests today. I liked the episode overall, though the faces at the beginning of the episode were a bit too unnecessary and appalling for my tastes. However, the real Nightmare Fuel comes with all the Body Horror in this episode. While we already saw a bit of how Mr. Krabs and Sandy transformed into Krabby Patty zombies, the transformations for the other Bikini Bottomites almost make me feel like I won't sleep good tonight. Seriously, A guy who was wise not to eat the lab patty fell victim to a horrific transformation just by being fed flesh from the zombies! And one scene that scared me the most was when two people were merged together into one single patty! Reminds me a lot of all the body horror from Slither and The Thing.

It is a relatively new episode, from season 11, and IT SUCKS. The only reason it is not higher is because it was added recently. It is gross, disguisting, creepy, disturbing, unwatchable, unlistenable, terrible, horrible, terrifying, horrifying, spooky, bad, scary, grotesque, awful, horrific, terrific, gross - out, shocking, unfunny, uninteresting, stupid, horror, dumb, mindless, pointless, walking dead, unbearable, insulting, braindead, worst, UHH, UGH, Resident Evil, boring, frustrating, tiring, breathtaking (in a terrible way), heartstopping (in a horrible way), trashy, zombieish (in a worst possible way), bodyish (in a way I wish didn't even exist), burgerish (I don't have to tell you in what kind of a HORRIFYING way), labish (you know it already), violent, mindbending (in a A Pal For Gary way) and Anti - Spongebobish. And a lot more. This is one of the rare episodes that has all of these elements combined in an unwatchable blob. This episode should be suspended forever. Walking ...more

Sooo creepy! The way the bikini bottom citizens all turned into zombie hamburger mutants and the way patrick popped out of nowhere at the end and took his eye out was so creepy! It was like the Walking Dead

Creepiest episode to date. The way they turned into those patty mutants and went after spongebob, and infect everyone was like the Spongebob version of The Walking Dead

15 Bummer Vacation

, in my opinion this is the scariest episode ever especially when spongebob went crazy, looks like he got iNSaNiTY. Ok I'll stop, I love that vocaloid song but I think it fits this episode. This episode gave me nightmares.

Spongebob being away from the Krusty Krab makes him go insane. When he says I've been waiting for you Patrick! and laughs like a psycho. O_O

The part the creeped me out the most was when Spongebob went crazy.

, This is the scariest episode ever!

16 Ink Lemonade

This newer episode of Spongebob completely represents the worst aspects of the more recent seasons. There are no redeeming qualities found within our favorite sponge and seastar. First of all, the duo uses ink as a drink for passerbys, ignoring all of the health issues with it. Second, they repeatedly scare Squidward into unwillingly exerting ink. Lastly, they drive Squidward to the point where he is so paranoid that he is afraid to breath, talk, or walk in his OWN home. We never truly liked Squidward, but even the toughest of souls cannot turn a blind eye on the atrocities that he goes through.

This episode is mostly gross because Squidward spits out lots of ink which is pretty disgusting. The real creepy part is when he eats the cookies Spongebob and Patrick gave him and spiders are crawling out of his nose! That's just nasty and terrifying! Imagine watching this when you have arachnophobia

It was creepy because Patrick was farming Squidward's ink by making him go insane

17 Earworm

When I was 8, I sang the song at school for a presentation they were doing. Now I get creeped out by the part where he goes insane and writes on the walls.

Spongebob goes insane, quite disturbing.

Ear worms supper scary

I didn't like this one

18 Face Freeze

SpongeBob characters made weird faces before. (funny ones, not creepy) So Nick decided to dedicate a whole episode about it, thus creeping us out.

I think we should all agree that Squidward had the creepiest face freeze of all. Need I say more?

This episode is so ugly. I can't even with the faces here. My T.V. froze on squidward during a storm and it creeped me out...

How's this even allowed on a kids show?! Those faces were disgusting!

19 Are You Happy Now?

Squidward was so depressed in this one that it made the episode creepy. The creepiest part was at the end when he was ripping all the paper mache SpongeBobs

I think The creaters of this cartoon had red the creepypasta story of squidward's suicide because there was a scene where squidward commited suicide. So this is why this episode is creepy and disturbing

This is my second favorite after Valentines Day and before I Was A Teenage Gary.

Squidward torture to the max. Small wonder why squidward went psycho.

20 Clams
21 Procrastination

In my opinion, this is the scariest episode ever. His nightmare sequence is scary. And THIS scene. Time's up Spongebob. Jesus Christ.

The whole nightmare sequence is horrifying. Certainly one of the scariest episodes of the original three seasons.

This wasn't creepy at first, but it built up to the point where it was borderline psychotic.

So weird how his furniture came to life!

22 Wormy

I honestly don't know how it was okay to put a live action close-up of a horsefly on a kids show. I remembered watching that horsefly close up when I was little, and always getting freaked out by it. I do remember getting nightmares from it.

I think this was a good episode but the horsefly scene scared me so much as a child. I would always run out of the room when it came on.

Before the close up: Oh this is a nice episode very funny. Oh wormy grew up. Spongebob and Patrick are gonna see him
(Creepy close up)
After the close up: Holy (screaming) run for your lives (more screaming).

How is this scarier than the teenage gary one? And for that matter how did Gary Takes A Bath even crack the top 25?

23 Fear of a Krabby Patty

People say that Mr. Krabs almost made SpongeBob kill himself, but I don't think that's true. He just goes insane, doesn't reference it at all, and SpongeBob literally says "I want to live! "

The huge Krabby Patties freaked me out as a kid. I never wanted to watch this episode! By far the creepiest in SpongeBob history.

Gotta admit. The big talking burgers freaked me out as a little kid.

What sleep deprivation can do to you...

24 A Pal for Gary

It's so frustrating how Spongebob doesn't realize that Gary's new "friend" is actually a monster. I felt so bad for Gary. It's actually not that scary though.

25 House Fancy House Fancy is the first season 6 episode from the TV series “Spongebob Squarepants”. In this episode, Squidward tries to make his house fancy so he could beat his rival at making a fancy house and Spongebob comes along to help. This episode is infamous for "the toenail scene" where Squidward gets his toenail ripped out while SpongeBob is moving his couch.

Before toenail scene: Oh, this episode seems good. Squidward always beats Squilliam!
After toenail scene: *faints*

Not really creepy, more sickening and disturbing.
