Top 10 Worst Moments in SpongeBob SquarePants Episodes

There are some moments in SpongeBob that makes me wanna say HECK WITH YOU SPONGEBOB YOU SUCK! So here's a top 10 list about it.
The Top Ten
1 Plankton attempts suicide (One Coarse Meal)

This the (obviously) the worst piece of trash episode of SpongeBob and probably any kids show in general! When I first saw it I didn't thought it would came from THIS! I mean it's just disgusting to show something like this it in a kids show. Mr. Krabs dressed as a whale like her daughter to stalk and scare Plankton to attempt Suicide... is that supposed to be funny or something?! It's completely obvious that Plankton and Pearl meet each other in "The Algae's Always Greener" but I think that it's clear that the show doesn't keep their continuity very well. Then shows Plankton lying on the road waiting to get run over by a bus clearly shows him trying commit suicide, the disturbing part is when SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs what Plankton was doing but his response is laughing at plankton suicide attempt.

Honestly what ever went the through the writers head to think how the suicide topic is funny to put it in a kids show is just DISGUSTING! If I have kids I wouldn't let them see this ...more

If I was given the choice to have Mr. Krabs steamed, boiled, and buttered up for me to eat, I would cut him open, chew his insides,and leave my leftovers for the sharks.

Okay that was a little dark, but after seeing this, could you blame me? Mr. Krabs drove Plankton to the brink of death with his cruel joke, and prided himself for it. It's episodes like these that raise my blood pressure and turns me into a wild animal. I hope this episode gets banned from television.

Plankton literally tries to get himself run over because Mr. Krabs keeps torturing him and when Mr. Krabs finds out that Plankton wants to kill himself he laughs because he probably wants Plankton to die. Mr. Krabs is such a monster. If Nickelodeon banned "Mid-life Crustacean" because of the Panty Raid scene that most kids don't even understand then they should ban this garbage episode that no one likes.

How did this episode not make either of the mobrostudios top 20 worst SpongeBob episode countdowns? I mean, the episode wasn't funny, it was mean spirited and kinda creepy. I'm sure a 6 yr old kid has nightmares from watching this. I don't think SpongeBob's slideshow at the end wasn't as much to torment plankton as it was to save mr krabs (most people disagree with me though), but mr krabs went too far this episode. I don't like cheering for plankton because he's the supposed bad guy, but mr krabs isn't much better, especially in this episode. it was heartless that he actually laughed when he found out that plankton was trying to kill himself. I wish mr krabs was more like how he was in the earlier seasons. he was obsessed with money, but still had a heart when it mattered. now, he's just an ass who would kill someone (I'm not exaggerating). I kinda wish mr krabs had what was coming to him, instead of getting off scott free

2 Spongebob is a stupid jerk to Gary (A Pal for Gary)

This episode always crawled under my skin. In this episode, SpongeBob becomes worried thinking about how lonely Gary must feel when he's at work (when in reality Gary is just fine). So as a result, SpongeBob comes up with the idea that he should get Gary a friend so that he isn't alone when he's at work. As much as he had good intensions, which any pet owner could feel the same way about their pet, SpongeBob is told about this specific pet he wants to get (which he names Fluffy)that it's very dangerous, especially around OTHER PETS. Even after hearing this he STILL buys it and takes it home. Not only does he make this stupid mistake, but he also leaves the two pets together BY THEMSELVES. Like what the heck, any responsible owner would know not leave new pets alone with the old pets. And SpongeBob is completely oblivious to what is happening to Gary, every time Fluffy tried to eat him, Gary would run away in fear but yet SpongeBob kept forcing him to stay with Fluffy. SpongeBob kept ...more

Hillenburg has only been off the show for about 7 years back then, and everyone else has already forgotten what's Spongebob's personality is! I can't believe it didn't already get CANCELLED by season 5 due to positive reviews not happening for 6 AND A HALF SEASONS! This is obviously the worst Spongebob has ever been at. After first watching this episode I thought that when Spongebob blamed Gary for everything he only was looking at it from the weirdest perspective ever conceived (I still thought it was very bad), but after looking at the fan reception, I now realize that this is just absolute JUNK that the producers thought would be funny! How did it take Hillenburg 10 YEARS to realize the show was falling apart without him?!?!?!?

SpongeBob, what is WRONG with you? Gary is about to be eaten by "puffy fluffy", and you don't even care. Gary was trying to save you, protect you, and...uhh...SAVE you from a horrible monster, but you don't even NOTICE IT!? What the writers were thinking, I'll never know. I will hate this scene till the end of time. No other scene will bring me such hatred.

How is Mrs. Puff trying to kill SpongeBob worse than SpongeBob being oblivious to the fact that poor Gary is about to be eaten by Puffy Fluffy? At least Mrs. Puff had the right to kill SpongeBob for popping her. Gary did not deserve all that neglect from SpongeBob.

3 Mrs. Puff tries to kill SpongeBob (Demolition Doofus)

"...It's SpongeBob who deserves it because of all the trouble he gave her. And you Mrs. Puff haters deserve to be in prison for siding with that damn sponge! "

-Woah! I get that SpongeBob can be completely reckless at times (see Hall Monitor and Boat Smarts) and did deserve to be arrested for his actions, but does not deserve to be arrested solely on the fact that he gave Mrs. Puff some trouble. Also, Mrs. Puff should've instead set up a difficult obstacle for SpongeBob to drive through where he would likely get injured (but not killed) to teach him a lesson after popping her. Murdering one of her students is not only illegal and immoral, but way out of character for Mrs. Puff. Also, how do SpongeBob fans deserve to be in prison for siding with the sponge? Please don't bring the fans into this.

The hell with all of you who crapped on Mrs. Puff! Are you really that black 'n' white in thinkin about it?! You don't know what the hell she's been through!

The one who claimed that both SpongeBob and Mrs. Puff are both bad is a big fat liar! If I'm him or her, I'd only pick one side. And that's Mrs. Puff. I know what she's been through because I've been through all the similar that she has.

Honestly, how would you feel if that damn sponge gave you crap 24/7? Wouldn't you want him dead?

Like it or not, sometimes death is necessary when dealin' with constant troublemakers. Claimin' that it's always bad no matter what is a hypocritical, or self-righteous, way to look at it.

As for all of you who sided with Mrs/ Puff against SpongeBob, praise to all of you. You deserve rewards and not punishments. If I'm a court judge and I saw Mrs. Puff kill SpongeBob, I'd reward her instead of punish her.

I side with Mrs. Puff. SpongeBob has gotten her arrested, and nearly killed. He even made a joke about her being popped: "For now on I guess we'll have to call you Mrs. Pop." You cripple her so much times, then you joke about it. So she really had a good reason.

She gets arrested for the damage to the town that SpongeBob caused, but doesn't get arrested for trying to MURDER him?!?! I hate SpongeBob in the episode too, but she tried to murder someone. Why Nickelodeon?! WHY?!

4 SpongeBob rips off Squidward's toenail (House Fancy)

Am I the only one who just doesn't feel the pain? I mean, I understand the pain of getting your toenail ripped off/stubbed, but I somehow don't get it at all. Hate me whenever you want, because I think the scene is funny because of how Squidward screams when he gets his toe scrubbed off. And no, that doesn't mean I hate Squidward, okay? It was just a funny scene to me, so don't just judge me by my actions.

Hello writers of this episode! This is SPONGEBOB. Not Happy Tree Friends. People who can easily stomach g0re and graphic t0rture aren't the main audience of Spongebob.

THANK YOU! Thank whoever put this list together for putting this in the worst MOMENTS and not in the worst EPISODES! Anyways, yes. This part was unneeded and probably scarred a lot of children (but not me). However, this is probably the most underrated episode for this reason.

I'm surprised this got past the censors in my country. I didn't even know Squidward had a toenail, but apparently he did, and it got ripped off, kind of brutally.

5 Mr. Krabs laughs when he finds out Plankton is trying to commit suicide (One Coarse Meal)

In my opinion, I think this is one of the 2 WORST moments in SpongeBob history, right next to SpongeBob being a jerk to Gary in "A Pal for Gary." After this episode was made, I was surprised that the writers didn't make an episode about something like being racist. Laughing at suicide is something that only an INSANELY evil person would do. And this episode has one of the WORST endings that I've ever seen in a SpongeBob episode. The writers can't expect me to believe that Mr. Krabs was actually the good guy in that episode after he drives Plankton towards suicide and makes fun of him for it. If you've never seen or heard of this episode, let me just tell you one thing: NEVER WATCH THIS EPISODE!

Wow! Mr. Krabs doesn't even care or acknowledge that Plankton was his childhood friend. He's just a soulless, greedy businessman who sells addictive cartoon burgers.

This should be number two or one. This is almost as worse as the show "Mr. Meaty". Self explanitory at this point if you know what the show's "protagonists" look like.

They intended this to be funny? They wanted you to root for Mr. Krabs? Thank god these writers were fired.

6 Squidward attempts suicide (Are You Happy Now?)

Squidward never remember having a happy memory and almost KILLS HIMSELF OVER IT?! Do they really leave out THAT much continuity?!?!?!? Every time the producers have ideas not from seasons 1-3, they almost always just turn it into just plane awfulness that they think is funny for 10 years! If I was alive watching nick during 2008-2012 there would only be original episodes that actually have a plot without just mentioning continuity (the current episodes would just break it) to support me with no season 9b, season 10, season 11 and early season 12 to "help me through my journey". I've never actually seen the episode, but knowing the plot and details of the ending from comments, It's already confirmed as season 7.

I sometimes wonder if the creators of SpongeBob read the creepypasta "Squidward's Suicide" before making this episode? I already ranted about Plankton's suicide, and I feel the same way about Squidwards. Suicide, bah! Such a horrible topic to put on a children's show.

They made two types of suicide: hanging and carbon monoxide poisoning in oven (Sylvia Plath's death, for example). I can't believe the people behind the show just let this happen! They act like they don't care! This episode should be banned.

I actually like this joke, because I actually thought he was going to commit suicide, but hey fool me with the brownies, and birdcage joke, it actually worked for me.

7 Spongebob doesn't see Puffy Fluffy being about to eat Gary (A Pal For Gary)

SpongeBob walks in a room and is shocked to see Puffy Fluffy eating Gary's bloody corpse.

Scolds what's left of Gary for not letting Puffy Fluffy play with him.

SpongeBob is definitely stupid in this episode. But then again, he always is that way, which makes me want to see Squidward wipe him out.

This made me want to destroy my television. Enough said.

Is SpongeBob really this stupid?!

8 Pus squirts at Mr. Krabs (The Splinter)

Season 6 is the grossest season of Spongebob ever. I bought the full season 6 DVD and started watching episodes while eating my lunch and I literally had to stop eating just because of all the gross imagery in a lot of the episodes. Toenail and skin ripping and gross close ups is in most of the episodes in this season. The Splinter is the grossest episode of all time. You see gross imagery throughout the entire episode not just one scene like in House Fancy. If you have never seen this episode please don't watch it!

I mean nick, really? Nobody wants to see a pus squirting, swelling, purplish reddish splinter. If you haven't seen this episode, you have blessed by god.

The splinter looks like a red, swelling, mutated wart spraying pus in mr Krabs face. Absolutely disgusting episode; who would like this episode.

Why isn't this number 2! Number 1 should be Plankton's suicide attempt, but this is a close second.

9 The Wonders of Unemployment (SpongeBob You're Fired)

"The Wonders Of Unemployment" is just a fancy way of saying filler.

Okay. This is one of the episodes I don't like, it's extremely boring

10 Sandy being too competitive (Squirrel Jelly)
The Contenders
11 Doorbell (Pet or Pests)
12 SpongeBob taking advantage of Squidward (Choir Boys)
13 City people (Stuck In the Wringer)

To be fair they didn't know why Spongebob was mad at Patrick, and all they saw was Spongebob being very mean to him, but why can't they have Spongebob tell his side of the story? Is it really that hard? Ugh.

Remember in "Fry Cook Games" where SpongeBob throws frying grease on the people? He should do it to those city people. SpongeBob is so misunderstood.

Hell, yeah, those city fish in this episode are hypocrites! As much as I hate SpongeBob, he's right about tellin' Patrick off. That starfish is worse than the sponge.

Those hypocrites. Those lousy, mean spirited, hypocrites. May you all ROT in Rock Bottom!

14 Dr. Patrick (The Splinter)

He just made it worse! But it was stupid when he tried different things to try to make it better, that what makes it funny! My opinion.

I'm fine with this one now because I'm messed up and the fact that this episode is kinda PHALLIC to me. Yeah, I'm insane.

And why was he so obsessed with sucking on SpongeBob's foot? I mean at first it's done funny but then it gets akward as it goes on.

I'd rather let Shou Tucker treat my splinter than Patrick.

15 SpongeBob kills scallops (To Love a Patty)

The not-as-morally-questionable thing about this episode is Spongebob basically falling in love with a KRABBY PATTY and pretty much treating it like a romantic partner (not the most surprising thing in the world for someone like SpongeBob), which is already kinda weird and unusual at best (not to shame anyone).

The more morally questionable thing about this episode is Spongebob literally killing off BABY ANIMALS just because they wanted to eat a patty he really likes. This alone already raises moral concerns and I'd be surprised if no one at the nickelodeon hq or whoever made this questioned if they should keep this scene.

Those poor scallops were just looking for food and Spongebob murders them and it literally shows Spongebob ripping the scallops in half. The worst part about this is he kills them to save something that isn't even alive. One of those scallops could have been Junior from Rock-a-bi-bivalve. Whoever put this scene in should be fired because they clearly know nothing about Spongebob's character.

This should be higher. It was just mean spirited of SpongeBob to do such deed.

I'm seriously surprised PETA didn't sue this show for this scene.

16 SpongeBob gets pampered by Gary (Gary's Got Legs)
17 ''I guess crying does solve your problems after all'' (Stuck In the Wringer)

How it should have ended:
Sandy goes into his house and finds out that Spongebob is stuck in the wringer, so she tries to get him out by ka-rah-tay, but it didn't work. She called Mr. Krabs to come, Mr. Krabs tries to snap the wringer but it doesn't work. Mr. Krabs called Squidward, he laughs at Spongebob, Mr. Krabs tells him to stop laughing or he will fire him, so Patrick, Sandy, Mr. Krabs and Squidward try and push it up, but it doesn't work. The only thing to do is call Plankton, he comes over and uses his "Item Disappearer" to remove the wringer, he uses it then Spongebob is finally free, now he wonders what he is gonna use to clean him?

I feel that this is a Yes and No statement.

No being: If one starts crying over a silly reason, people just look at that and say " What a crybaby!"

Yes being: A legitimate reason, as Patrick was upset at his own stupidity had ruined SpongeBob as he knew him, and probably many other things in reality.
But the truth to this statement this all depends on the situation/reason that is causing someone to cry; I don't think that we should start crying just because we have a problem (a very small problem, like forgetting to wash your hands before going to work).

They should change the ending so SpongeBob never gets out of the wringer but says, "I guess crying doesN'T solve your problems after all. Although you would be left feeling sad for SpongeBob, you'd probably hate the episode less.

One of the worst ending lines from an episode. The only two worse are "Haven't you learned about sharing? " from Your's, Mine, and Mine, and "Looks like you guys forgot your boat smarts! " from Boat Smarts.

18 Subliminal Message Girl (Gary Takes a Bath)

Am I the only one who realized that Dee Dee makes a similar face in the Dexter's Lab episode Jeepers Creepers, Where Is Peepers?

This also needs to be higher. It got the episode banned in Britain and Australia. It was almost banned in America, too. And it actually creeped me out when I was younger.

Oh, I thought this episode got banned for a certain little joke SpongeBob made...

I don't get why this is below SpongeBob and Patrick die, which never happened.

19 Patrick admitting he is not stupid (The Card)

He admits that everything was intentional. To achieve what, I don't know. This basically ruins the character of Patrick and that every time he's been a prick or unbelievably stupid it was intentional.

WHY? This means that he intentionally burned Gary, intentionally ridiculed SpongeBob for stupidity, intentionally annoys Squidward, and intentionally didn't help SpongeBob with that splinter.

He just admitted that he was being a prick all along! Just what, Patrick?! I could bet a million dollars right now that his voice actor cried in the bathroom for a whole hour after saying that line?!

It's a single line that wasn't meant to be taken seriously and it makes you write entire paragraphs about a kids show character grow up.

20 Patrick's stupidity (The Card)

That made me hate Patrick more than before. Hell, it made me wish that SpongeBob SquarePants was never created. And so, I wish that Squidward killed Patrick/Pat.

Continually destroying a card SpongeBob cared about was bad enough, revealing that you did it all on purpose makes it worse.

This is one of my favorite episodes of the series, it's relateable and really funny.

21 SpongeBob threatens to send Gary to a restaurant to get cooked (Gary Takes a Bath)

That is just... Horrible! GOSH do I want to punch SpongeBob right now! And after A Pal For Gary...

Yes, the new episodes have affected the old episodes in a negative way.

I thought this was funny about the different language.

What's this doing here? It was a solid joke.

22 SpongeBob kicks Squidward out of his party (Breath of Fresh Squidward)
23 SpongeBob's best day ever (Best Day Ever)
24 Pearl's birthday party (Whale of a Birthday)

All they ways Mr.Krabs ruined her birthday,

Wrong poster: Seriously, were you just predicting a boy because ultrasounds were too expensive?

Stale popcorn and dishwater: Just go to the dollar store cause popcorn and drinks are pretty cheap.

Cardboard cake: --(0_0)--/

Squid ward preforms: You don't have money to get Pearl a present yet you can use money to help Squid ward get his own stage and backround.

This episode is amazing, the ending fixes any problems I might have had with it.

Krabs was cheap but stale popcorn and tap water don't sound bad.

Fudge. You don't give your daughter or son cardboard b-day cake and ruin their birthdays

25 Spongebob says no to people (The Abrasive Side)

This episode reminds me of Spider-Man 3 and you know what I'm talking about.

All SpongeBob wanted was to say NO! But everybody keeps on (commercialing) him, so really everybody excluding SpongeBob are the main antagonist

The Pearl part made me angry! Just say yes and make her happy!

Low point in good episode.
