Top 10 Most Disturbing SpongeBob SquarePants Episodes

You've voted for the best and the worst, now it's time to vote for the most disturbing episodes! Here's what I think are the most disturbing episodes of Spongebob ever made.
The Top Ten
1 One Coarse Meal

Obviously the worst. Mr. Krabs drives Plankton to the brink of suicide and laughs. SpongeBob defending Mr. Krabs at the end really ticked me off.

Pearl and the whales ( DEFINITELY included ) could've happened toward the end of the series?! 20 years of Spongebob, almost, Plankton tried to steal the Krabby Patty formula! That's even worse than Squidward being the mean one in the whole series!

Oh yeah, I agree, it's just a cartoon...suicide and depression jokes...Mr. Krabs laughing after hearing Plankton was gonna kill's silly. That was a very smart comment.

2 Are You Happy Now?

I actually didn't mind this episode, the way Squidward is being depressed is actually a good depict of someone with depression, even when Spongebob tries to get him to come out of his house, Squidward doesn't yell at him or throw him out, he's just lifeless and emotionless. And as some of my favorite youtubers have said, even when spongebob kidnapped Squidward and he became all mad and stuff and destroying all the papir mache's of spongebob, that alone is an accomplishment, Squidward was FEELING something for the first time in weeks! So I actually don't mind this one.

3 The Splinter

The most disturbing episode ever, like even Squid Baby or One Coarse Meal I can even handle. But this? No. First off, I thought SpongeBob was going to kill himself with all of those swords. Secondly, the way SpongeBob's thumb was sliding on the ground was disturbing, not to mention it was in slow motion and even worse, the way it was digging through his thumb, possibly reaching his bones. I'm shivering while typing this because it makes my skin crawl, because IT'S SO GROSS! Gee, thanks writers! Now the image is going to stay in my head!
Then SpongeBob is so desperate to get rid of it because Squidward said that he might miss work. Desperate enough to call, "DOCTOR" Patrick. RIIGHTTT. Then he starts making SpongeBob guilty by saying that he knows more than him, and he makes it worse by-YOU KNOW WHAT? I've said enough. This is disgusting. Bye

4 Squid's Visit

I'm glad this episode's on this list. That's what it gets for portraying SpongeBob as the no-life stalker he is. How dare he invade Squidward's life constantly, especially by copying his own home to look like the octopus' place.

If I didn't know better, I'd say that the episode's writes were trying to influence kids into being like that stupid sponge. because of that yellow character's relentless torture of the cephalopod, I want Squidward to kill SpongeBob and his (the sponge's) fanatics.

Down right the creepiest SpongeBob episode. The episode felt like a creepypasta. Not only was SpongeBob weirdly obsessive with squidward but the episodes tone was disturbing. The writers purposely thrown unfunny dark humor at us such as,

The pillow scene
Squidward talking to his vacuum
SpongeBob literally cloneing squidwards house
Squidward goes insane towards the end
And the hallway in this episode.

5 Boating Buddies

This deserves to be high on the list because of much SpongeBob stalked Squidward. It's bad enough he does that. But when he looked at the octopus with a lusty look on his face and breathed heavily, that's downright sickening.

It seems that the sponge has become gay for Squidward. And I wish that octopus murdered him and all of his (SpongeBob's) fans.

6 A Pal for Gary

This is definitely the most disturbing episode.

This episode is traumatizing.

All moments with puffy fluffy's mouth are the most disturbing scenes in sb history

7 Squidbob TenticlePants

Seriously I bet I can hear barfing noises while watching these other episodes! This episode is definitely the worst and most disturbing

Tied with Whirly Brains as my 2nd least favorite episode with only Dumped being worse.

8 Fungus Among Us

This episode traumatized me. I could not stop itching myself, I never want to watch it again!

I was little the first time I watched this and I was traumatised

9 Demolition Doofus

The only thing that's disturbing about this episode is the fact SpongeBob didn't die like I wish that he did. It's what he deserves for ruining Mrs. Puff's life.

I also hate all the haters of Mrs. Puff for what she tried to do that sponge. How closed-minded they (the haters) are. If I'm any of them, I'd put myself in the puffer fish's shoes and experience all the trouble that SpongeBob gave me. If they do that, maybe they'll think twice about bashing Mrs. Puff.

Mrs. Puff tries to kill SpongeBob and I honestly don't even blame her.

10 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... read more

This...I cannot even with this scene, it's sickening, creepy, disturbing and it makes my toe feel like I'm suffering the same painful moment-oh crap! My toe hurts now as I'm writing this! Screw whoever decided to make this scene!

This is actually a good episode because Squidward won at the end-minus that disgusting toenail scene. Secondly, he slipped on it, which made it even more disturbing and makes my skin crawl when I see it. Yuck

The toenail scene is a bit brutal, but I find the episode pretty enjoyable.

The Contenders
11 Face Freeze!

Ha ha! Wasn't this episode hilarious?
No, no, it actually wasn't. Well, kind of, but most of the majority of this episode is a complete NIGHTMARE! Can you imagine the look on kids' faces after seeing this monstrosity? Okay, maybe I'm overreacting a bit. I mean, hey! It could be worse! This episode could've been a LIVE ACTION! Imagine what happened to Squidward happened to a HUMAN! Creepy, huh? If it did happen, it would terrorize me for a long time! And I'm not JUST talking about Squidward! Mr. Krabs, Spongebob and Patrick too! I give this episode a 5/10 because half of this episode was actually amusing

12 Squid Baby Squid Baby is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 9 where Squidward slams his head on a mailbox which causes his head to swell up which makes him look and act like a baby.
13 The Battle of Bikini Bottom
14 Ink Lemonade

Basically everything about this episode is disturbing. It's easily one of the worst of the show, and has no redeemable material. The episode is filled to the brim with gross (the bandaid in the armpit scene), cruel (the entirely of what Patrick did to Squidward), and just flat out disturbing (the ending with the eggs...) material. This is like One Coarse Meal, but worse!

Absolutely disgusting episode. I wish this episode wasn't a thing

15 What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?

A more recent episode called "Fun Sized Friends" came out in the UK recently aired, and someone makes a similar face!

That sponge bob face in quote "is there something wrong with me? ". The 2nd creepy episode is suicide squidward

Is there something wrong with me?

16 Wormy

I always thought that frightening insect close up was a bumblebee but I recently found out it was a horsefly. I used to have nightmares of that closeup when I was little

I will never watch this episode ever again, that close up scene traumatises me just by thinking of it.

The close up of the insect or whatever it was just game me nightmares. I'm almost 12 and I'm still not over it

17 Stuck in the Wringer

Did anyone else think SpongeBob was going to kill himself at the end of the episode when he was watching T.V. static?

Worst episode ever. The creators make it seem like Patrick is the good guy and SpongeBob is a jerk, but it's the other way around. #killpatrick

18 To Love a Patty
19 Gone

How is this not up higher? Definitely much darker than the average spongebob episode.

Was this the episode where Spongebob wakes up and he's the only one in Bikini Bottom?

Intro: scary shot
Scenes:very dark and scary since I was 10-12
Almost/Ending:not scary(thank god! )

20 Squidward in Clarinetland

I liked it, but it's a perfect example as to why not to take drugs.

21 Mimic Madness

This episode isn't quite as disturbing as most of the other disturbing episodes such as Graveyard Shift, but this episode is everything that is both enjoyable and heartwarming thanks to Bob Jaques, who is the most powerful animation director of the show alongside Tom Yasumi.

It's creepy because Spongebob keeps morphing when he loses his mind to imitate everyone he sees.
At least it's better than Face Freeze.

22 Nasty Patty

This episode is hard to rank when it comes to disturbing. Basically the episode starts with Spongebob and Mr. Krabs get met by the health inspector. And they give him everything on the menu. Then the news reports states that there is a fake health inspector, trying to get free food. Mr. Krabs, as you might expect is triggered and gets Spongebob to poison him. Then they find out that their health inspector is real and try to bury his body. Overall, this episode was only a little bit disturbing.

The beginning is extremely terrifying, but this episode is mostly for horror fans.

Wait, what? :/

23 Cuddle E. Hugs

When Squidward walks into the Krusty Krab, all he sees is a pile of scared fish, with more fish falling onto the pile in a strange way. Although really they are in a giant, invisible, (to those who didn't eat the weird patty at least) hamster's stomach. That VORE scene really grossed and freaked me out. The part where they were burying themselves in the giant hamster's fur was also disturbing to me...

This episode is actually quite disturbing when you think about it. Imagine eating something bad, then suddenly, there's this massive hamster who's acting really nice to you...

24 The Graveyard Shift
25 The Gift of Gum
