Most Underrated SpongeBob SquarePants Seasons

The Top Ten

1 Season 4

This was great. It was just as good as Seasons 2 and 3. Season 1 isn't even as good as this season, and neither is season 5. Seasons 1 and 5 are good. Out of the golden era, Season 5 may be worst, but still good. Season 4 deserves more respect, and it's part of the better three seasons (Seasons 2-4) - Goatworlds

I find it okay, but overrated (SquidBob TentaclePants made me nauseous when I was younger, and I avoid watching the episode because I find it to be really uncomfortable).

I liked this season, is not that bad.

I think that seasons 1-3 are all rated very accurately, but this one is just hated way too much! I'll admit that episodes like All that Glitters weren't too good, but it had some of the best in the whole series as well-Best Day Ever, Have You Seen This Snail, Fear of a Krabby Patte, do I even need to continue?

2 Season 9

Most people stopped watching and didn't see this season.

Best post movie season so far. - DatIrishman

Wait the one I was joking about I meant down!

This season is as good as Season 4 - Worksponge

3 Season 5

Seasons 1-4 are superior, but this was also generally a solid season.

I honestly prefer this one over season 4, which I find to be bad. I only liked 3 episodes of the latter.

Certainly better than the nightmare that followed. (Seasons 6-8)

This season is completely underrated. While Season 4 may have been better by most people but the pros in Season 5 definitely outweigh the cons.

4 Season 1

Usually when people talk about "Seasons 1-3" of SpongeBob, it really just means "Seasons 2 & 3 of SpongeBob". Really good season, the best in the whole show. Great characters, great episode plots, great cel animation (especially in the second half), great humor, great season. Needs more love!

It's good but I find it overrated.

Bad episodes in my opinion:
Sandy's Rocket Ripped Pants
Help Wanted - IcetailofWishClan

This season is the one nobody ever talks about usually people talk about seasons 2-10

EXTREMELY UNDERRATED! Season 3 is good but not as good as this season Season 2 is the best but this is number 2, 1 and 2 always stayed strong, but from Ugh to the end Season 3 was kinda meh

5 Season 3

Who can forget "Chocolate with Nuts" - Goatworlds

I love this season

How is that underrated? Those season is overrated! - LapisBob

This is not underrated - garlicboy

6 Season 10

What the heck?! There's no Season 10 yet!

This one wasn't released yet... - Goatworlds

Probably starting in 2016...

Season 10 hasnt started yet!

7 Season 8

This season was underrated. People say it's just as bad as 6 and 7, but it's a major step up. It has way less "awful" episodes. And they started putting more effort. Almost every special was great. And there were many more enjoyable episodes and more jokes. Also, less gross out jokes! It's definitely no season 1-3 but this season is underrated and shouldn't be called similar to seasons 6 and 7

I will give this season credit for finally killing off the writers' "we need to have gross-out every other episode! " mindset.

Sucked a little. - Goatworlds

This was my least favourite season... - ForestFeline

8 Season 2

I love it. Same quality as seasons 3 and 4. - Goatworlds

9 Season 7

One Coarse Meal, need I say more?

Don't forget A Pal for Gary, Stuck in the Wringer, Yours Mine and Mine, or Pets or Pests - Goatworlds

Really guys?! This is the worst season ever! The only episodes I like are SpongeBob's Last Stand (even though the Jellyfishing song is annoying), I Love Dancing, Growth Spout, and Perfect Chemistry. The worst episodes are A Pal For Gary, and the evil One Coarse Meal.

I find this season mediocre.

HEY GUYS! This isn't underrrated, this season just sucks! - Goatworlds

10 Season 6

I actually find this one decent.

Unpopular opinions I have on this one:
Plankton's Regular
Shell Shocked
Squid's Visit (Just said it)
And I'm still trying to figure out on the rest. - IcetailofWishClan

This Season Was Bad But Not Worse Then Season 7... - Ardan

Yes, and god, Season 7 was responsible for pulling an episode out of its butt, called One Coarse Meal - Goatworlds

This season is really bad, but it had some episodes I like, such as Penny Foolish, Nautical Novice, the Slumber Party, and Sand Castles in the Sand. House Fancy is pretty bad, but it would've been better without the brutal toenail scene. Don't get me started on Choir Boys and Shuffleboarding.

Hate it almost as bad as Season 7 - Goatworlds

The Contenders

11 Season 11

Just watched the entire season and I say that it's my 2nd favorite season behind S2. - IcetailofWishClan

Michael Jackson voice* I love this season.. - Worksponge

This should be in the Top 3 in my opinion - greenshyguy

12 Season 12

Yes, there are some episodes out.
