Top 10 Worst Things Squidward Has Done on SpongeBob SquarePants

Squidward may be the show's punching bag and suffer a lot of misfortune, but in a change of pace, I think it's time we look back at some of the worst things Squidward has done on the show.
The Top Ten
1 Openly read SpongeBob's diary to everyone - Little Yellow Book

Yes, we all know SpongeBob is the most annoying character in cartoon history, despite being admired and lovable because of the stupidest things he has done in the series. He does tend to annoy Squidward in a way that he gets interrupted a lot constantly. But this one episode made me pissed off because SpongeBob's personality begins to dry. Squidward reading secrets that are truly deep and personal to him is a breach of privacy. He couldn't respect that, and SpongeBob is willing to do the shameful and embarrassing things in public. Squidward is indifferent in this episode, and he is the real meanie.

2 Neglected Gary while SpongeBob was away - I Was a Teenage Gary

Squidward agrees to watch Gary while SpongeBob and Patrick are away for the weekend at a jellyfishing convention so he can have time for himself. They would be away, but when the weekend ends and SpongeBob and Patrick return, he realizes that he has completely neglected Gary. Gary is shown in a near-dying state from the lack of food, water, and attention.

That was bad. He forgot about Gary for the weekend. SpongeBob was gone.

Squidward should get sued & arrested for animal cruelty!

3 Played a horrible April Fool's prank on SpongeBob and made him cry - Fool's in April

During the episode, SpongeBob plays a series of harmless April Fool's pranks on everyone, annoying Squidward. So, he pulls one himself on SpongeBob, which comes off as way too mean-spirited. SpongeBob is pulled by a rope and flung around the Krusty Krab, hitting everything in sight. Meanwhile, Squidward laughs at his pain, and then he has SpongeBob land in a trashcan and dumps him out. SpongeBob begins to cry, while everyone around is shocked and appalled by what Squidward did.

The thing that I find most stupid is that people think it's okay what Squidward did to SpongeBob because he's a "relatable" character. Honestly, this whole thing, in general, of relatable people just annoys the hell out of me.

4 Operated a crane incorrectly, causing destruction - Skill Crane

Squidward becomes obsessed with the new crane game at the Krusty Krab. After failing to get a single prize, SpongeBob teaches him the secret to winning at the crane game. Finally, Squidward wins a prize, but he goes way overboard. He steals an operating crane from a construction site and foolishly believes it operates just like a crane game. Of course, he loses control of it and ends up destroying a mall and the Krusty Krab in the process.

That was the worst! He completely destroyed those buildings in the skill crane.

5 Intentionally caused a rift between SpongeBob and Patrick's friendship - Naughty Nautical Neighbors

I really didn't like that episode.

6 Teased SpongeBob after seeing him be kissed by his grandma - Grandma's Kisses

Squidward is just making himself feel better by making fun of SpongeBob because his grandma never kissed him.

7 Took advantage of SpongeBob's hospitality - Can You Spare a Dime

After Squidward quits his job when Mr. Krabs accuses him of stealing his first dime, he becomes homeless and is reduced to sleeping on the streets. SpongeBob, feeling bad for him, allows him to stay with him until he can get back on his feet. However, Squidward ends up taking full advantage of SpongeBob's hospitality, treating him like a servant and forcing him to wait on him hand and foot.

8 Faked an injury at work to take advantage of Mr. Krabs - Accidents Will Happen

A Mr. Krabs torture episode. All because Squidward was sleeping on the shelf.

9 Stole Mr. What Zit Tooya's wallet - Good Ol' Whatshisname

In an attempt to win a work contest, to win what he thinks is a vacation, Squidward attempts to learn everyone's name at The Krusty Krab. He then comes across one guy whom he asks for his name, but he replies with what sounds like "What's It To Ya?" Desperate to learn his name and win the contest, Squidward resorts to stealing the guy's wallet and finds out his name is actually "What Zit Tooya." Squidward is arrested, and though he wins the contest, it's just the brochure of the vacation.

10 Gloated when Santa didn't show up as SpongeBob hoped - Christmas Who?

After learning about Christmas from Sandy, SpongeBob gets everyone into the Christmas spirit, except for Squidward, of course. But when Santa doesn't show up, everyone blames SpongeBob for getting their hopes up. As SpongeBob is left heartbroken by the whole ordeal, Squidward happily laughs at SpongeBob's humiliation and even takes a photo of SpongeBob in his sad state.

Squidward is such a douche in this scene, though not the worst things he's done. But purposely trying to make SpongeBob feel even worse about Santa not coming to town is just downright despicable.

The Contenders
11 Insulted SpongeBob and later attempted to exclude him from Bikini Bottom - What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?

I'm surprised this wasn't on the list yet! Most of the time when Squidward is being mean to SpongeBob, he just sits there happily, but this is one of the few times he actually gets him to cry, along with reading his diary, causing a major harmful prank, and making fun of him for being kissed.

12 Annoyed others with a whistle - Slide Whistle Stooges
13 Attempted to sabotage SpongeBob's dance audition - I ♥ Dancing

Squidward Jealous Tentacles is his full name!

14 Separated SpongeBob and Patrick because they were using his yard as a walkway when they were running back and forth to their houses - That Sinking Feeling

Squidward needs to learn how to not let little things people do bother him so much even if it is Spongebob and Patrick doing the most guy needs to get a life.

15 Assisted Mr. Krabs in "teaching SpongeBob a lesson" in an unnecessarily cruel way - Hooky
16 Made false statements to the police about a disturbance - Fiasco!
17 Disposed of SpongeBob's flea circus - All Under the Circus Top
18 Misused SpongeBob's gas mask by sneezing in it - Squiditis
