Top Ten Worst Moments In Spongebob Episodes

There are some moments in spongebob that makes me wanna say HECK WITH YOU SPONGEBOB YOU SUCK! So heres a top 10 list about it.

The Top Ten

1 Plankton Attempting Suicide (One Coarse Meal)

1. Mr. Krabs Laughing at the Fact that Plankton is Attempting Suicide (One Course Meal)
2. "SpongeBob, you can't always expect my brand of stupity, I like to mix it up" -Patrick Star (The Card)
3. SpongeBob being a stupid jerk to Gary (A Pal for Gary)
4. Patrick Being Stupidly Oblivious Toward SpongeBob (Stuck in the Wringer)
5. Suicide Jokes (Are You Happy Now? )
6. Plankton Attempting Suicide (One Course Meal)
7. Mrs. Puff tries to kill SpongeBob (Demolition Doofus)
8. "I Guess Crying Does Solve All Your Problems After All" -SpongeBob (Stuck in the Wringer)
9. Dr. Patrick (The Splinter)
10. Pus Squirting at Mr. Krabs (The Splinter)

Dude, did they really have to make Plankton attempt suicide? It's not cool to make jokes and humor out of such a serious topic about people killing themselves! WHY WOULD YOU PLAY AROUND WITH SUCH A TOPIC AS SUICIDE?! PEOPLE KILLING THEMSELVES AND NO LONGER BELIEVING THAT THEY ARE WORTH LIVING IN THIS WORLD AND THAT THEY ARE BETTER OFF DEAD THAN SURVIVING AND SUCCEEDING IN LIFE IS A JOKE TO YOU GUYS?! IT JUST FRUSTRATES ME THAT THESE PEOPLE ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT SUICIDE IS SOMETHING THAT CAN BE JOKED AROUND WITH AND DISPLAYED IN FRONT OF CHILDREN! NO WONDER WE HAVE MORE PEOPLE COMMITTING SUICIDE, THEY ARE SEEING IT IN CARTOONS AND EPISODES LIKE THESE!

I mean dark humor is a thing but, yeah, they kinda went overboard with this one

My friend has had an experience with suicide before, and he absolutely hates any suicide jokes in media. This episode is mean-spirited and I can't believe they got this past the censors. Hell, even Stephen Hillenburg hates this episode!

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 ...more

2 Spongebob being 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

Not everything is going to go the right way in a show like this, it's just a kids cartoon and there's no reason to rant this much about something mean happening to a fictional character.

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.

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 didn't root for Mrs. Puff OR SpongeBob in this episode. This episode should've never existed. Making fun of the disabled? Wanting to KILL your favorite student? Yeah, I'll see myself out...

The big problem is there is no one to root for here as both spongebob and mrs puff are bad in this episode spongebob cripples mrs puff then jokes about it but then she tries to get him killed like the writers aren't even trying to hide that she literally says why are you still alive who's the good guy here can someone tell me

4 Spongebob Rips Off Squidward's Toenail (House Fancy)

This literally causes my toe to hurt. Seeing people's experiences of stuff like this happening to them in the comments does NOT help. Thanks, boys.

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.

WHAT CRAZY SADIST WROTE THIS MOMENT!?... Shudder... I just got a horrible image of the voice of squidward having to do thirty takes of squidward screaming while his toenail is ripped out

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 That 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!

They did do an episode about being racist. It's called "Kenny the Cat."

Hey Mr Krabs! Do u seriously think that it is funny when your old pal Plankton is committing suicide?! This greedy crab sucked in this episode! You know, I'm starting to think that Mr Krabs is the REAL bad guy!

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.

I'm in the mood for some Krab rangoons right now at the China Buffet after what Mr. Krabs said. And I would like them COOKED OVER 9000 degrees.

6 Squidward Attempting 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 Blind SpongeBob (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.

@Ededdneddyfan55 says the guy who enjoys Sanjay and Craig.

SponngeBob was blind several times. For example: "Immitation Krabs" from season 2.

8 Pus Squirting at Mr. Krabs (The Splinter)

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.

This was sooo disgusting, but if I had to choose between this scene and the toenail scene from House Fancy, this might be my choice. Just saying.

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

9 Gary, put Puffy Fluffy down right now! (A Pal For Gary)

Spongebob should have died in the most horrible and painful way after he said that.

This line makes me angry as hell.

10 SpongeBob Punishes Gary for Saving Their Lives (A Pal for Gary)

In another article about fixing that episode, SpongeBob said "Bad Monster! You ate Puffy Fluffy and now you're not gonna eat my-" before he was captured. Is this better?

This moment has been on the list four times so far.

The Contenders

11 Ending (SquidBob TentaclePants)

To be honest, I like this episode but the final scene is creepy, disturbing and too violent for an animated show for kids.

It all started when I was born... And when that idiot sandy blasted everyone with her combining ray

This scarred me more than the toenail scene, all of The Splinter, and all of Face Freeze.

Excuse me but this should be way lower! This is way too freaky to ever be aired.

12 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.

Please excuse my old self's practically insane and unacceptable behavior. I don't like this episode anymore and I agree with all the rest of you that there is a limit to gross-out humor which this episode passed.

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.

The good thing about it is that it is over quick. Patrick is only there for 30 seconds

13 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.

I wanna pinch him in the eye

14 ''I Guess Crying Does Solve Your Problems After All'' (Stuck In The Wringer)

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).

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?

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.

15 Subliminal Message Girl (Gary Takes a Bath)

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.

I wonder why? It's a little creepy, but not that creepy. It's just a red neck farm girl with a derp face.

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?

Spongebob admitted that he went too far with that image. "Sorry you had to see that."

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

16 Pearl's Birthday Party (Whale of a Birthday)

Pearl's birthday party would never have been ruined if Pinkie Pie was the one planning it. Pinkie is the one pony who makes it her mission to give someone the best, and I mean the BEST, party ever! All Mr. Krabs did was ruin the party with things like stale popcorn, dishwater punch, a raw krabby statue of Pearl, AND BIRTHDAY CAKE MADE OUT OF CARDBOARD AND FROSTING! Pinkie Pie could make much better birthday party with excellent birthday treats and games, a statue made out of cupcakes, and an awesome birthday cake for Pearl than that disgrace for a father of hers. While Pearl and everybody else is having a fantastic time at the party made by Pinkie, Mr. Krabs is blasted away out of Pinkie's party cannon and not invited!

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 would have been a great moment and an great episode if only MR. KRABS DOESIN'T RUIN IT! I mean mr. Krabs promise pearl a good party but instead he ruined it by being cheap. He has an old banner, dis water, stale popcorn, cardboard with forsting, and squidward. COME ON MR. KRABS YOU CHEAPSAKE SPEND YOUR MONEY STUPID! But thank fully SpongeBob got pearl every present and even the real boys who cry. Thank you SpongeBob.

I have two statements,1:someone with the username monty Python is commenting?!?!? And 2:this moment wasn't as bad as some of the others (one course meal,the splinter,stuck in the wringer and pal for Gary.)

17 The Flashback of Patrick Not Washing His Hands (The Battle of Bikini Bottom)

This part is funny.

18 SpongeBob Threatens To Send Gary To A Restaurant To Get Cooked (Gary Takes A Bath)

I didn't noticed that moment, but when I seen it on the list, I HAD to vote for it. However, the moment when Puffy Fluffy almost EATS GARY ALIVE and the blind sponge says: GARY! YOU PUT PUFFLY FLUFFY DOWN! In both moments, I wanted to kick him like a soccer ball.

I literally cried when I saw this because I though it was gonna happen GARY TAKES A BATH Is my worst spongebob episode

I admit this part went a little to far but have to seen a pal for Gary or one course meal?

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.

19 Spongebobs Best Day Ever (Best Day Ever)

This episode is suppose to be the best episode ever but however its not. I MEAN COME ON WE WANT A ONE HOUR SPECIAL OF HIM AND HIS FUNNY MOMENTS! But instaed its about spongebob helping his friends out because they have problems on his best day ever. MORE LIKE THE WORST DAY EVER!

Best Day Ever? More like most boring day ever.

It is just werid how they sing the song ANNOYING!

20 Spongebob Saying No to People (The Abrasive Side)

Spongebob has a hard time saying no to people so he decides to get an abraasive side to say no. But instead of saying no the abraasive side says nasty things to people. I mean COME ON SPONGEBOB YOUR ABRASSIVE SIDE IS NOT SAYING NO ITS BEING MEAN TO YOUR FRIENDS! God how hard is it to say no. You say no in other episodes why not this one?

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

Not a bad episode though because SpongeBob actually learns his lesson in the end

There are much worse scenes than this
Whoever put this here is dumb
I mean his abrasive side is funny to be honest

21 City People (Stuck In the Wringer)

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.

City people? Spongebob deserves more than that since spongebob destroyed the whole universe in the strings

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

22 Cop Gives SpongeBob and Squidward Tickets (Keep Bikini Bottom Beautiful)

This has to be the #2 Worst SpongeBob episode for me. At the beginning this is "funny", but by the halfway point, especially when the Cop gives Squidward a ticket after the previous ticket fell from Squidward is completely stupid. I'm glad that at the least SpongeBob got a ticket, but that Squidward got almost 10 tickets and never went to jail is dumb.
I hate that the Cop never got punished at the end, example being that he tripped and dropped his pen, and then his superior sentenced him, Squidward, SpongeBob, and Squilliam to community service.

The only reason how the episode led to the plot is because the police blamed Squidward for littering gum despite the fact that it was only right next to him and it was obvious that someone else could’ve done it. Even when Squidward talks to the police officer in an obviously not nervous voice, he still sent him to Community service (this has become a very annoying running gag in the series). Oh. And no one happens to point out that there’s a giant statue made out of Trash compared to a single piece of gum!

Remember when SpongeBob wrote on the Krabby Kronicles that Plankton was making chum out of people? If only that wasn't a lie, I would have been fine with Plankton turning that cop into CHUM.

I usually wouldn't find this funny but for some reason I actually laughed out loud every time

23 Ending (Stuck In the Wringer)

So bad it's on here twice

24 The Flashback of All the Times Patrick Touched SpongeBob with His Hands (The Battle of Bikini Bottom)
25 Ya know, kid, your body isn't the problem. It's your heart. You deserve what you've gotten. (Stuck in the Wringer)

This one reason, and the other amounts of unnecessary cruelty, are why I consider 'Stuck In The Winger' to be the worst of all episodes of Spongebob. While I would blame the fish (in cartoon standards...), keep in mind that the true ones at fault here are the writers... Zeus Cervas, Sean Charmatz, and Derek Iversen...

Also blame these writers for the following... writing these fish in like this, writing the unnecessary amounts of cruelty to Spongebob, and also just for brainstorming the idea for this episode... Two more things to blame are United Plankton Pictures and Nickelodeon for greenlighting and airing this episode... This is what turns people off from watching spongebob and the episode should really be declared not canon to the series...

That part made me go crazy. I also hated the part where Patrick was just saying, " I was just trying to help". He had no common sense whatsoever. I saw one comment that had said, "stupidity is not an excuse". True! Stupidity is not an excuse to gain sympathy. It's like saying if the terrorists that had caused 9/11 and had said, "We are just still human beings trying to learn". What? You expect us to sympathize? No! Anyway, when that fish told Spongebob that it is his heart that's the problem, I wanted to be in Spongebob's body and say, "It's your mind that's the problem. Look what Patrick did to me, he got put this forever glue on me and he thought that it would help me. Really? We also went out for ice cream and he won't help me. He also ate all my ice cream too. Double times that jerk. He is basically inconsiderate of my feelings from home to here. How would you feel if you had a friend like that? Either have a brain, or go to hell! (Storms out)"

Oh my god. This character was basically stuck in a plot hole in his life. He basically couldn't do anything. Eat, Work, Have fun, you name it! And it's all because of Patrick, who's trying to make SpongeBob feel better by rubbing his glory in his poor face. Hell, he even got a black eye and Patrick's like "I GOT FIRST PRIZE! LOOK, LOOK, I'M BETTER THAN YOU! GO TO HELL SINCE YOU WONT EAT ANY COTTON CANDY! I'M PATRICK! " And SpongeBob finally decides to say, "Okay, you know what? Just stop. You've caused my life as I know it to be complete hell. I'll basically starve or choke to death in this thing because of you. And no, you can't help me again. Because I think if you'll try to help me with this again, you'll probably convince me to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. So I don't need any of your help." But in extreme anger instead. So Patrick goes off bawling and thinking that it's not his fault and SpongeBob's only being a dick. Then the townspeople think that too. And they're like, "You ...more

This is what happens when a writer fails to make a character sympathetic. They wind up treating the victim like they're a major jerk.
