Top Ten Things About Spongebob That Are Not True

The Top Ten

1 The Show Should Be Cancelled

The only episode I think was worth watching was when the character SpongeBob proved himself worthy by getting his job as a fry cook and made friends with his neighbors but the rest is just teaching kids how to make irresponsible juvenile diliquents of themselves and making incredibly stupid decisions like the episode "A Life in the Day", where the moral is to live everyday to the fullest but in this case, SpongeBob a slightly-minded gay sea sponge living in a fruit, and his best friend an absent-minded starfish living, and speaking like possibly the dumbest caveman in history accept for the episode that reveals the truth when caveman invented fire, I feel this show should be banned for life and it's a waste of money and time of our public access to television I don't care if kids like it parents who let them watch it or what's more sad parents who actually like it you're letting you and your kids' brains turn to the dark and dull side. Do yourself a favor and vote by banning that ...more

Spongebob has gotten really bad lately. It's not funny anymore it's just stupid and annoying. They don't need to cancel it completely, but at least stop making new episodes.

It deserves to last longer then 20 seasons.

What children's show has been running longer than Spongebob?
Power Rangers first aired 1993.
The Japanese version Super Sentai first aired in 1975!

2 Sandy and Spongebob Are In Love With Each Other

Their kids would look like aliens and that scene in Truth or Square turned out to be pretend.

It is unbelievable to think that some people actually believe that.

I see why people think this, but SpongeBob obviously doesn't want to settle down yet

That's actually true - ConorDooley

3 Spongebob Is Gay

I saw this and thought this was utter rubbish. SpongeBob isn't gay and even if he was, it doesn't matter because SpongeBob isn't about anyones sexuality; it is about a guy and his friends doing their normal lifestyle- which just happenes to be an amazing one. Can people just couvade on being entertained?

Everyone was saying this at school and I'm just sitting down peacefully think "NO HIS NOT SpongeBob IS AWESOME! " - munkee_linc97

This was like, the BIGGEST rumor about Spongebob ever... - Celestius

He's asexual. - PerfectImpulseX

4 The Newer Episodes Are Terrible

This is partly true, they still have creativity like Sand Castles In The Sand, Great Episode. But things like A Pal For Gary and One Coarse Meal Shouldn't have made it past the story board. I mean come on... SUICIDE ISN'T FUNNY! - bdcool3

With the exception of season 8, none of the seasons were bad in my opinion. One of the most underrated ones is choir boys, and it is among the best in the whole series. Some episodes seamed bad at first, but when I watched them again, I realized that they were great.

Some are extremely bad, but the newer seasons always have golden episodes. People just watch one episode and judge the whole season based on that.

Partly true, but not ALL new episodes are horrific. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

5 The 1st Season Was the Only Good One

False. The 1st season was my favorite, but the 2nd & 3rd seasons were good too. The 1st season gave an under the sea feel with some comedy. But 2nd and 3rd season were more comedic than the others. Here is a simple review. 1st: gave me a I was under the sea feel. 2nd:home to my favorite episode (jellyfish hunter) but good. 3rd: quality slipped a tiny tiny bit but not that noticeable. Those are my thoughts on the situation.

Seasons 1-4 were all great! However, Patrick is the best character. Honestly, if he wasn't on the show, how many people do you think would still watch it?

It did have good episodes but so does Seasons 2 and onward

And season 4 and 3 were worse but still good

6 The New Episodes Are Funny

The old episodes were creative and funny. SpongeBob wasn't smart in the old ones but he wasn't as dumb as he is now. The new episodes SpongeBob isn't smart at all and the humor is as creative.

Some episodes can be funny, but in general, there's more gross humor and less clever writing. It's more written for kids now instead of for kids, teens, adults, and everyone in between.

No comedy, but still the best currently airing on Nick, showing just how bad it is right now. - Goatworlds

Opinions can't be true, opinions can't be false. This list is terrible and represents the horribleness of the SpongeBob fanbase. - TeamRocket747

7 Some Other Nick Shows Are Better Then It

NO SHOW IS BETTER THAN SpongeBob! I've heard a lot of Invader Zim fans saying that SpongeBob is stupid! THEY'RE ALL LIARS! - ravenann

It's not always, new sponge bobs are bad. Invader Zim is better than new sponge bobs.

The channel is destroying itself with these new shows with people who can't act to save a life. Remember "Marvin Marvin", "Zoey 101", "Victorious", or "iCarly? " You couldn't even begin to compare those shows to SpongeBob SquarePants, the one good thing that Nickelodeon ever did. - jamin00

No SpongeBob is the best animated show and always will be - PatrickStar

SpongeBob rules the school. - Goatworlds

8 Plankton Is Evil

I don't think that Plankton is evil, just greedy and possibly misunderstood. He is not that evil if he even is evil.

Remember One Coarse Meal? Who was evil in that? - Garythesnail

Is taking over Bikini Bottom and enslaving the population not evil?

So I guess taking over Bikini Bottom and enslaving everyone isn't evil?
I guess Hitler taking over Germany and enslaving the Jews is not evil then. - TeamRocket747

9 The Spongebob Squarepants Movie Isn't Any Good

I hate the second one! I was forced to go because everyone in my family likes it except me, and my parents don't care whether I want to go or not. It was the most boring thing ever, with a plot that has been overused to death. So, yeah, someone steals the secret formula, Mr. Krabs gets mad and the apocalypse starts (seriously? Because a recipe for burgers was stolen? ), SpongeBob gets Patrick, Mr. Krabs, Squidward, and Sandy to help him get it back, they go through a lot of trouble to get it back, they get it back and Bikini Bottom turns to normal, the end. Ever heard that before? Oh, yes! Plenty of times, especially while watching SpongeBob!

Are you kidding me the SpongeBob movie was so funny and it was the best thing having to do with SpongeBob ever

Honestly, I only watch it for "the drunk on ice cream" scene, and "i'm A GOOFY GOOBER ROCK! " - Discord

I think the first movie was greater than the second one. - creed99

10 The Show Is the Worst Show On the Planet

Of course its not, that spot goes to Fanboy and Chum Chum

The worst show is actually Uncle Grandpa

The new show is one of the worst on the planet- but the old show?...I. THINK. NOT.

The real one is caillou and almost naked animals. - Jay12

The Contenders

11 Season 4 was Terrible

Season 4 was good

Season 4 is like second best only to Season 2. Season 3 has the same quality as 4.

Yeah, will people stop saying that? It's just like season 3. - Goatworlds

I think it's ok

12 He's Annoying

Not Even Close to being true!

If he IS annoying, it's in a good way. - Garythesnail

Yeah that's true, but in the modern episodes he's no longer annoying and nice and funny now he's just annoying and not in a good way. No offense, but of you do any comparisons between an episode from season 2 and an episode from season 9 then you can notice a major difference in SpongeBob's character. - Anonymousxcxc

Only if by annoying you mean AWESOME!

Sponge bob Is arude kid

13 Patrick Is the Best Character On the Show

If he was then he would be the main character.

He's probably one of the worst. Every post movie episode shows him as either incomprehensibly stupid or acting like a total prick to everyone around him, including his so called "best friend".

Then it would be called patrick star -

Gerald Gary SquarePants the Snail is. - PatrickStar3

14 Pearl Is Stupid

Are you serious? Pearl is an absolute BRAT. She is disrespectful to her dad (even though he's the reason why she's such a brat) she still is one of my least favorite characters in the show.

She's an idiot actually. She's also annoying. The Chaperone was a bad episode. How about summon PIkachu and USE THUNDERBOLT AND VOLT TACKLE! - Goatworlds

She is. She really is.

I actually like Pearl's character, although she can be annoying at times (especially in post-movie seasons).

15 Classic era Sandy was a scientist

A lot of people use this to describe classic Sandy, but she only liked science in like one episode. She used to be the Texas tomboy.

She literally only mentioned science once before the movie, in the episode where she built a rocket. - Garythesnail

16 Plankton Should Get the Krabby Patty Formula

I kinda agree with that. Maybe they should have an episode to show what would happen if he ever DID get it. Other than that, the show would be TOTALLY ruined. Plankton wouldn't be there, Krusty Krab would close down and SpongeBob has no job

If he did then he would never need to be in another episode.

Well it needs him in it so never will happen

This would be a great way to end the series.

17 Mr. Krabs Watches Porn

Actually, he does, in some undersea form. In one episode, not sure which, there was a porn reference, and someone, I believe it to be Mr. Krabs, was watching it. However, my memory's pretty hazy. It may have been SpongeBob, but that doesn't make it any less unsettling considering that in the SpongeBob world, he is considered a teenager.

That could only happen in a YouTube poop.

This is disgusting. - Goatworlds

Wait, what? Where did this even come from? - Garythesnail

20 Squidward's Nose Is a Penis

I highly doubt little kids have stopped and thought about squidwards nose as being a penis, it is just a big nose people are so dirty minded, it's a cartoon for petes sake

It does not look like a penis... would his nose have an arrow-like shape on 1 part? - MeaganSaysHI

But peppa pigs dress is a penis - TheKirbyCreeper999

Oh, great. Now I can never unsee that. Thanks. - Garythesnail

25 Sandy Grew Up in Bikini Bottom

She grew up in Texas!

Come on guys, I don't even like SpongeBob and I know Sandy is from Texas! (Actually she's my favorite character.) - RiverClanRocks

Texas! - Goatworlds

26 The Show Is Done After Season 10

This seems to be pretty true, Nickelodeon can't think of any more ideas after Season 10. - nelsonerica

Season 10... Probably will be just decent. No other seasons are like that. Season 5 was good, Season 4 was great.

The show was renewed for a season 11 and 12 and the show might end on it's 20th season if I'm correct


27 Spongebob Is Evil

What you hate the fact that spongebob is evil will he is not so shut up

He's not evil, he's just very annoying. - Anonymousxcxc

No but his boss is sevil

I mean evil not sevil

28 Everyone likes Squidward the most

Squidward is the best though. - Goatworlds

29 Spongebob Likes Sandy

Who the heck posted he likes Patrick and Squidward? That's way dumber than this! Gosh, some people are stupid :l

Some of the earlier episodes like Ripped Pants and arguably Squirrel Jokes did sort of imply this.

He likes patrick and squidward

Spongebob is obviously gay lool

30 Seasons 6-9 Were Good

Of course! Seasons 1 and 5 were good, Seasons 2-4 were great, Season 6 was bad, Season 7 (Around the time One Coarse Meal aired) IS when the show hit rock bottom. Season 8 was the start of its inprovement, but still a bad season, it was still bad in Season 9.

9 is good.. - Garoto_Oceano

31 Pearl Shouldn't Be In the Series

The only reason she's like this is because of her idiot father, the crab, who got her dead batteries for Christmas and made her a raw meat statue for her sweet sixteen.

The only reason that people don't like her is because she's not in many episodes. And if she wasn't a character then some of the episodes never would've exsited.

32 Squidward is Pitiful

It seems no matter how many other episodes there are with different plots somehow spongebob and Patrick always find a way to torture Squidward, I know they did this in earlier episodes like The one where squidward tricks them into thinking it's opiate day but it has gotten worse yo the point where squidward might as well kill himself.

In the newer episodes, yes. But in the old episodes, he was truly a great character. Band Geeks, Pizza Delivery, Shanghaid. The new episodes don't count as SpongeBob, so this is not true.

33 SpongeBob is a Tampon

I think this was a meme. It's stupid people think he is..

34 Squidward Should Commit Suicide

God I hated that episode. And you're wrong he shouldn't commit suicide. - Goatworlds

He should've commit suicide in Are You happy Now.

I'm so sick of the suicide mentions and the negative rep on homosexuality and death comments. Sure I may hate various things, but that doesn't mean I comment the death comments and suicide stuff. - Anonymousxcxc

35 Squidward is Homosexual

This is parodied in a lot of YouTube poops.

Oh come on squidward is a flaming queen

36 SpongeBob Is a Kitchen Sponge

He's a sea sponge.

He just looks like one

37 Face Freeze is a good episode

People who like it are immature 7 year olds. Also the other comment is wrong 10 year olds are awesome.

It's TERRIBLE. Anyone who thinks it's funny has the mind of a 10 year old.

38 Season 7 Was Awesome

It was HORRIBLE! Especially One Coarse Meal and A Pal for Gary

There are a couple of decent episodes still, though. - IcetailofWishClan

It always was bad. - Goatworlds

39 Mr Krabs Is A Good Person

Since when makes no sense at all

He sucks - Goatworlds

40 Patrick is the Smartest Character On the Show

He's easily the dumbest. SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs are also idiots, although Krabs isn't a lovable oaf. He's a selfish, cheap, mean barnacle head. - Goatworlds

No, this is Patrick - Garoto_Oceano

41 One Coarse Meal Wasn't Completely Disturbing

It was. It really was. It's like crap and pee soaked together dipped in vomit and served with a side of boogers. That's how bad it is. - Goatworlds

42 The Characters Are Based On the 7 Deadly Sins

Do you really think they would try to do this on a kids show?

43 Mr. Krabs Hired His Nephews

No his nephews wanted the job but he said no

44 The Speed Of The Show Corrupts Little Kids Minds
45 Everybody likes Patrick the most

Not true. I like Patrick but he isn't my favorite. SpongeBob is my favorite, so there's your proof right there.

I actually like Patrick the most, I love SpongeBob too, but Patrick is just 1/100 better. - funnyuser

Patrick is my third favorite gary and squidward are better - PatrickStar

Not me I hate Patrick because he is a wuss and a coward

49 I Grew Up With SpongeBob

I was actually born the year it came out! And the month before it did! - creed99

Some people did. Just because you didn't doesn't make it untrue.

50 SpongeBob Is Inappropriate for Children to Watch

This is true. Remember episodes like The Splinter, House Fancy, A Pal For Gary, One Coarse Meal, Face Freeze, What Ever Happened To SpongeBob, Demolition Doofus, and Squid's Visit?

Has anyone watched the scene from whelk attack? Where SpongeBob and patrick tore part of their eyes out? Is that appropriate? If you don't remember that scene then watch the episode "Whelk Attack". It's there.

She world is inappropriate for children let alone a cartoon, people are ridiculous just turn the dang channel

People hate House fancy just because of the toenail scene. That is the only reason you said it was bad for kids to watch

There are. "The Sponge Who Can Fly" and "Nature Pants."

There are. Argh! I'm With Stupid. The Great Snail race. Bubble Buddy. Bubblestand.

58 SpongeBob and The Fairly Oddparents Are the Best Shows Ever

SpongeBob is. The Fairly OddParents is not.

59 House Fancy is a Bad Episode

This is anything but true. It just gets a bad rap for having a scene that's less than 10 seconds long. It's one of my favorite episodes. It's the most underrated episode that needs more respect.

To me, it's pretty boring but not bad, other than the brain and toenail scenes.

60 Squidward Takes Drugs

He was high in that episode Squids Day Off and my proof is that he hallucinated SpongeBob into his mirror and he said "I will destroy the Krusty Krab"
