Worst SpongeBob Season 1 Episodes

These episodes I don't really hate and season 1 was a good season but some of these episodes just were not perfect

The Top Ten

1 I Was A Teenage Gary

I'd say it's bad only because of how scared the transformation scene made me. Other than that it's still far from being the worst episode EVER, still has its funny moments.

The first half is bad and overall the plot is weak and unfunny. - Paaatttriiickkksttaarrr

It's my least favorite episode in season 1. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Why is nature pants higher than this?

2 Nature Pants

This episode is really bad and it should be #1. Pickles was actually really funny. I liked when Bubble Bass started ordering that complicated sandwich and Squidward told him they serve food, I liked when Spongebob wore his underpants on his head, the line "and there's my car keys" was really funny, there were some good jokes about Spongebob being unable to do things in a correct order, the episode was really funny. The boots from Squeaky Boots were kinda annoying, but not VERY much, the sound is not THAT annoying, and it had some good jokes. I would review some other episodes, but none of them are above this one so I feel like I don't have to. Anyway, Nature Pants was really bad and it should be #1.

This episode is not only my least favorite Spongebob season 1 episode, it's my least favorite Spongebob episode of all time. The plot is weak, there are no good jokes, the Patrick going savage part (the majority of the episode) is one of the worst Spongebob moments of all time, the buz buz part made my ears bleed, the ending where Spongebob's friends got itchy is horrible, Spongebob is very ugly as a jellyfish and that part made my eyes bleed, Spongebob is naked almost the whole episode, it's a Spongebob torture episode and it's frustrating, boring and annoying. My favorite part, the fire fighting scene, is not that good either. I hate this episode with a burning passion.

Outside of there not being any funny jokes or memorable quotes, this episode is just disturbing.

The first episode about SpongeBob being naked - PatrickStar

3 Squeaky Boots

Those boots are so annoying! - PatrickStar

4 Pickles

This episode's the first episode to feature my least favorite character of the show --- BUBBLE BASS

It wasn't bad but I didn't laugh to much on this episode - PatrickStar

5 Arrgh!

Krabs ruined this episode - PatrickStar

This episode is okay, but I didn't really enjoy it. - Datguyisweird666

6 Reef Blower

It would be better if they had sound - PatrickStar

"You! " - Datguyisweird666

7 Walking Small

Many people didn't realize what Plankton was doing - PatrickStar

8 Pizza Delivery

How do you hate this episode!? If you don't like it, you have zero taste in animation. - OhioStateBuckeyes

I respect your opinion. But no way this should be one of the worst as it is my favorite episode. - Paaatttriiickkksttaarrr

What the heck?! This was a great episode! - SwagFlicks

This is one of my favorites... - Minecraftcrazy530

9 MuscleBob BuffPants MuscleBob BuffPants is an episode of SpongeBob SquarePants season 1. In the episode, SpongeBob buys a pair of fake muscle arms to impress Sandy.

This is one of the many episodes of season 1 that were either middle of the road, or weak. In this case, it was a bit of both, as this was an episode that tried doing practically the same plot of Ripped Pants again with no changes other than the thing he's using to impress Sandy is muscles, though, there were a few funny jokes, and the similarities to Ripped Pants is the only bad thing about this episode other than the lack of much good comedy. It isn't a bad episode, just on the worse side of meh.

It was a bit boring - PatrickStar

10 Ripped Pants

A whole episode about SpongeBob ripping his pants. At least the song is good - PatrickStar

Bad episode - Gangem

The Contenders

11 Jellyfishing

It was gross when Patrick jabbed the jellyfish net into Squidward's arm - PatrickStar

I like this episode, sure the jabbing the net into the arm is really, well disturbing, it is not as bad as The Splinter (I hate that episode) - Joansb

At first I was good old squid ward karma when he gets the jellyfish mouth but then the torture goes on and on

I love this episode!

12 The Paper

Why is this not the highest, you can at least get laughs out of the other ones while this you just sit and stare at a screen for 15 minuets

Really underhated

13 Neptune's Spatula
14 Fools in April
15 The Chaperone

This one's pretty dull, not quite bad, though

16 Valentine's Day

First, does SpongeBob know that during this holiday you give presents to your loved ones? Like, loved ones, not platonically.
Second, Patrick is just annoying. Actually, this is quite possibly the first Patprick episode.

17 Squidward the Unfriendly Ghost

I find this one is creepy and it scares the crap outta me.

18 Jellyfish Jam
19 Opposite Day

Your Squidward he's Squidward and he's Squidward are they any more Squidward's in here. Gary: Meow. - PatrickStar3

20 Suds

Some of this written below is base on my early viewings in this episode from around December 2004, others actually happened in the episode. This one always freaked me out since I saw it at age 2, enough to the point where I feel worse for SpongeBob than usual because of how sick he is and sounds. Also, I feel like Season 1 hasn't aged well in comparison to Seasons 2 and 3, despite having some of my favorite episodes. Now for the facts: this episode is mean spirited, mostly because of Patrick's treatments, to the point where SpongeBob is on a medieval torture bed, that scene was banned in some international areas. If it weren't for my childhood experiences with this one, maybe it wouldn't be as bad, but still mean spirited.

This episode is great! My favorite part is: "Don't touch me I'm sterile! "

21 Karate Choppers

This episode has one of the funniest insults through out it.

22 Help Wanted

Really this was the birth of SpongeBob. Do you smell it that smell the kind of smelly smell that smells smelly anchovies. - PatrickStar3

23 Home Sweet Pineapple

This episode is pretty boring. - Paaatttriiickkksttaarrr
