Most Underrated SpongeBob Episodestoy
The Top Ten
I'm sorry, but this special has WAY too many problems to be considered "underrated" in my opinion. The biggest problem with this episode is it's pacing. The episode is only a half an hour long, but it REALLY should've only been 11 minutes. As such, each individual scene is dragged on FAR longer than it should. Another big problem with the episode is the fact that it steals concepts and plot elements from SEVERAL other episodes. SpongeBob has been fired on numerous occasions, yet this special treats it like it's a fresh idea (it isn't). The latter half of this episode blatantly rips off the plot of Season 4's "Le Big Switch" in that SpongeBob can only make Krabby Patties as opposed to other types of food. Now, if the episode had new joke ideas and interesting ideas to offer with these reused concepts, that would be great. Instead, what we get is a severely watered down version of several earlier episodes. Also, there are several plot holes and missing story elements ...more
I hate this episode
This one's bad - Linc
No. This deserves the hate it gets. It’s plot falters a lot and doesn’t make sense. Not to mention how pointless this episode was to begin with. Spongebob gets fired and rehired numerous times throughout the series. Why is this any different? - childrenV 1 Comment
I think this episode is more overhated than underrated. I believe that people overreact WAY too much to the suicide aspect of the plot. However, I don't believe the intention of the episode was to mock depressed/suicidal people. I believe this was meant to be a silly "Krabs gets back at Plankton" episode, that unfortunately made a few missteps in the story department. Overall? It's not a particularly good episode, especially from a comedic and writing standpoint. However, it does get too much hate.
One Coarse Meal deserves every bit of microscopic hatred it gets. Who would even give this a positive review? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
YAY! I'm not a sadist! - Murvine_Taylor
This episode, along with quite a few others is way too overhated and underrated. That's why I voted this. - the2thomasklu8V 3 Comments
This episode is alright, but far from great
Yes, I do think this episode is underrated, based on the criticisms of this episode. See, there are 2 sides to the criticism of this episode, the side that hates Squidward, and the side that likes Squidward. I'm going to focus on the side of liking Squidward. See, this side likes Squidward and finds this episode cathartic for seasons 6 and 7. My problem is that both sides hate this episode. THIS side hates the episode just for the hypocritical townspeople and Patrick. There's a weakness to this side of the criticism that hates this episode: Squidward ends up on top and Spongebob loses. You totally have the right of hating the townspeople, but that's just a few minutes long, and just know that Squidward ended up on top of the end. So yeah, people should like this episode more because Squidward wins. Yes, the Bikini Bottomies didn't get punished, but does that matter if Squidward wins? The criticism of this episode could've been like the episode Krabby Land, where Spongebob tortures ...more
Probably not the strongest season 4 episode, but still pretty good. I thought it felt kind of like a season 1 episode (that's good, season 1 is my favorite season).
I love the ending
By the way here I am now I’m the one that said I love the ending, well I meant for pranks a lot I love the ending I hate the ending for things episode
I think it’s hilarious. Definitely not the strongest Season 4 episode but I don’t see why people dislike it. - children
I love this episode
It's pretty boring, but not awful other than the toenail scene.
This is one of my favorite episodes of the show. Squilliam's house is so cool!
I give this 8/10 because the whole episode is awesome except for the toenail scene - Datguyisweird666
This episode is great
How many do you think there are pat uh ten
This episode is NOT underrated! It’s amazing and iconic and one of the best S4 episodes too - childrenV 1 Comment
I actually thought this episode was funny. Although Plankton being in Patrick's underwear was funny BUT GROSS at the same time. Other than that, the episode was still a little funny. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Very underrated. I forgot this episode because I hadn't saw it in a while. - JaysTop10List
Why does nobody talk about this episode?
I hate the concept of turning adults into babies, but the implementation in this episode is very well done. The scene with Spongebob and Mr. Krabs beeing seniors is really funny too.
I don't really understand why people hate this episode. Everything is so ridiculous and exaggerated that I can't really take it seriously (unlike A Pal for Gary or Summer Job). There's lots of funny gags ("SpongeBob and Squidward Best Boating Buddies forever! ", and that part where that tough guy beats up Squidward, for example) that I just can't help but enjoy this episode. I still liked its sister episode, The Krabby Kronicle, better, though.
CREEPY AND SICKENING! I HATE SQUIDWARD TORTURE PORNS! - Goatworlds
I accidentallyvoted this when I tried to vote "The lost matress"
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME
It’s not a bad episode I just felt like it was unnecessary and the plot didn’t even end up focusing on the pants enough for it to make sense to be a special. - children
The faces scared me and gave me nightmares! - Catacorn
Nah. This was an actual crap episode. - children
EWW This episode was just disgusting! - Goatworlds
Mrs. Puff was an evil sadistic attempted murderer in this episode. - Goatworlds
Honestly I Don't Think This Episode Is Underrated While It May Not Aper On Best Lists As much As Band Geeks, Chocolate With Nuts Or Sailor Mouth It Still Gets Just Ad moat Of Praise To Keep It From Being Underrated
Why is this on the list? This is one of my favorite episodes of all time! - Catacorn
An absolute classic! Should be in the top 20 of all time!
This is a really iconic episode what is it here for? - childrenV 1 Comment
Best Season 7 Episode - ChiefMudkip
Love this episode so underrated
This episode is actually underrated! A lot of people say that the stupidity of Spongebob and Patrick is unbelievable but it’s honestly one of the only times their blatant stupidity in seasons 6-8 is ACTUALLY funny. - children
Never liked it as a kid still don’t like it now - children
This isn't underrated, a lot of people love it
This isn't a bad episode! Its really funny! - Catacorn
I love this episode because it doesn’t make sense. Some episodes don’t make sense and collapse in on themselves because of this, but this uses its out-of-ordinary circumstances to its advantage and pokes fun at it. I love this episode. - children
This episode was stupid, no plot and it doesn't make any sense. - JaysTop10List
What moron would enjoy this? - Goatworlds
And you'll never be born again after that. - JaysTop10List
Of all the episodes made before the movie, this is the one that I find people talk about the least, which really is a shame since this is a very funny and charming episode. To be fair, the key reason as to why this episode is so underrated is because of the fact that it is paired with the Valentine's Day episode.
Am I the only person who kind of thinks this was a good episode albeit a weak starting point for Spongebob? - children
This is the first episode! Its an absolute classic! - Catacorn
What you talking about this is SO ICONIC. The magic conch is an internet icon you kidding? - children
Second greatest episode of season 1, behind Pizza Delivery.
This episode is great
I liked it. - Goatworlds
This episode makes me cringe, and it's surprising that a cartoon episode can be one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen.
This is the grossest SpongeBob episode ever! - Catacorn
Yes, this episode deserves more attention than it hardly gets.
There are reasons why it was on PhantomStrider's list of "Top 10 Best Episodes of Bad Cartoons".
I hate this episode. When I saw it for the first time, I decided it was my least favorite episode. The next day, I told my two friends who love spongebob also how bad it was, and they agreed. Now my least favorite is one coarse meal, but I still hate this one, and it's probably in my bottom 10.
The newest episode. No wonder why it's underrated - JaysTop10List
I like this episode just because I love cats. - Murvine_Taylor
I love this episode so much! It’s too bad it came out between two questionable episodes near the end of Season 4. Which Season 4 is underrappreciated. It gave us gems like this. - children
Most underrated episode ever. - Goatworlds
I loved this episode! It's still one of my favorite modern SS episodes! But I can see why someone would call this episode "underrated:" it's one of the most least-talked modern episodes. Well, at least in my Spongebob experience. But still, I would disagree with that person because, literately, all of the top best modern SS episodes lists I've seen has Planet of the Jellyfish somewhere high on the list, usually 5th or higher. But then, I've only seen 3 lists of that kind, so... - QueenJazzy21064
A great episode and should get more attention like Pizza Delivery. - JaysTop10List
Not underrated, SpongeBob was a jerk to Gary, and this episode was heartless! - Goatworlds
I love this episode! Far better than The Great Snail Race!
This episode is awful
The ending ruins an otherwise okay episode.
Mmmm no if anything I think this episode is overrated, and that’s with the amount of hate it gets. - children
I LOVE THIS EPISODE! I never understood the hate! - children
One of the best episodes of Spongebob ever. Period. - children
This episode is very underrated! I think it's the second best season 5 episode!
Creepy. Once I was watching a review of this at night, and I got scared and had to turn it off.
I like this one
My dad's favorite eoisode
This one is just depressing. It is rightfully rated it sucks but even then it’s just... it’s hard to explain but it’s so bad - children
The show that made something as disgusting as the splinter can make something as beautiful as these caverns.
I actually love this episode. Definitely one of the best episodes from Season 6. I think it’s forgotten BECAUSE it’s from S6 - children
I like it, but it turns out SpongeBob is gay. - Goatworlds
