Worst Spongebob Squarepants Episodes


The Top Ten

1 A Pal for Gary A Pal for Gary

I just loathe this episode. Spongebob Ignorantpants ignores the lady's warning about Puffy Fluffy. The instant he ignores, you just want to make Spongebob absorb corrosives. He was blaming Gary for everything harmful thing Puffy Fluffy did. He scolded Gary for protecting himself?!? He also doesn't care about Gary when Puffy Fluffy was about to eat him saying " Gary! Put Puffy Fluffy down right now! " instead of "Puffy Fluffy! Put Gary down right now! ". Gosh, did I want to smash the T.V. because of that yellow, porous jerk.

I hate this episode as well, I really hate when SpongeBob blaming Gray instead of Puffy Fluffy. - GenoKenneth

This episode makes me question why Spongebob is still on the air and has a 7.7/10 at IMDb.

First off, Spongebob is astoundingly ignorant and stupid in this episode. I mean, if your own pet was being eaten alive right in front of your eyes, would you blame your pet for that? No? Well, that means you're a decent person, unlike Spongebob, who blames Gary at every single point in this episode where Puffy Fluffy (isn't that a great name? ) tortures Gary. Seriously, how did Spongebob not notice Puffy Fluffy tearing Gary's toy apart right in front of him?!?!

Also, at no point in this episode was I laughing. It's like watching Master of Disguise, so much more painful to watch than it is funny, but for different reasons. I honestly don't even think the writers even attempted comedy more than they did increase our hate for Spongebob nowadays.

Message to new writers, if you wanted to create a good Spongebob episode, try this. 1: Make the characters likeable. 2: Try doing ...more

In reply to the guy that mentioned Super Mario 64 and IMDb, please stop. - KennyRulz244444

Pretty much all the episodes season 6-9 are equally bad. But if I had to pick one episode to be the worst of them all, this is it. I'll try to keep it one paragraph. So before spongebob gets puffy fluffy. The beginning is like recycling a day without tears (another awful episode). Spongebob can't stop worrying about Gary, nothing has happened to him by himself in the past. I'm like COME ON! So he sees these ADORABLE creatures on the street. Not only does he steal the creature, but IGNORES the ladies the warning on how dangerous the creatures are. Spongebob has just done 2 things to make you mad! So Spongebob introduces Gary to Puffy Fluffy and gets mad at Gary Already for stuff that he doesn't have rules for! On every little event that happens he blames Gary. When Puffy Fluffy tears about Gary's toy, he does NOTHING! He is letting Puffy Fluffy torture Gary! At night Puffy Fluffy evolves and becomes DISGUSTING! The entire night, Puffy Fluffy is trying to kill Gary. That's right, KILL ...more

The post-movie episodes (especially seasons 6-9) were never good. While I usually do tend to like relatively unpopular episodes, this episodes is just one of many that is just painful to watch. It is one of many episodes that seasons 6, 7, 8, 9 have. Characters are unbelievably dumbed down from their original character, and they act in a way that doesn't make sense. Other episodes that suffer from this are Stuck in The Wringer (with Patrick), Demolition Doofus (with Mrs. Puff), Little Yellow Book (with Squidward), One Coarse Meal (with Krabs) and Your's, Mine and Mine (again, with Patrick).

Now, onto the actual episode. SpongeBob has to leave Gary to go to work every day, so he eventually buys a strange pet, but, with the season 7 fashion, he is mind-bendingly ignorant and doesn't listen to a warning about a pet. Then the episode begins it's awful decline. He names the animal Puffy Fluffy, and Puffy Fluffy immediately begins to TORTURE poor Gary. He gets mad at Gary for doing ...more

2 One Coarse Meal One Coarse Meal

Ah... SpongeBob SquarePants... when you think of a great family friendly children's show, this is probably one of the things that comes to mind, right? Well, if you've never seen this episode, please watch. It will change your mind COMPLETELY. No joke. What makes this episode so bad? What makes it worse than the episode A Pal For Gary, an episode FILLED with abuse of Gary? Let's get into it. Plankton is trying to (once again) steal the Krabby Patty formula. Pearl shows up, (just to ask for money) and Plankton is terrified because he has heard that whales eat plankton. Mr. Krabs uses this fear to create a master plan to stop Plankton once and for all. Mr. Krabs creates a costume that looks exactly like Pearl, and begins to scare Plankton, even when he's not doing anything that endangers the Krusty Krab. Great message for children, right? Don't worry, it gets worse. Plankton is starting to go insane. Literally insane. He doesn't cut his hair, his toenails, he wears tissue boxes for ...more

Is it weird that I read the first part of your paragraph in the French Narrator's voice?

There is only one word to describe this episode: Awful. Only "The Splinter" surpasses this episode in sheer badness. This episode made me hate Mr. Krabs and loose respect for SpongeBob. The way they treated Plankton was awful in this episode. Newsflash for the writers: Plankton attempting suicide is NOT funny! It doesn't matter that Plankton is the villain of the show. You cannot expect me to root for someone who traumatizes someone and drives that person to almost committing suicide.

The plot for this episode is just so mean-spirited. I mean, why would they expect us to root for someone who tries to drive someone else to suicide for no reason?!

This episode is like the camping episode's evil twin; all the events work together just like in the camping episode, but instead of working together to create great humor, the events make a perfect combination for you to LOATHE what SpongeBob has become compared to true classics like the camping episode, chocolate with nuts, graveyard shift, band geeks and many more.

The episode starts off like your average patty formula episode; a few minutes of battling between Mr Krabs and Plankton, with Mr Krabs reigning victorious in the end. How does he, you ask? His daughter, a whale, comes in the room and scares the living daylights out of Plankton. Mr Krabs is amused by this, and exploits his fear of whales not just to defend the formula, but literally to drive Plankton to his wit's end. For kids, right guys?

Pearl refuses to scare Plankton, so instead Mr Krabs disguises as a whale and tortures Plankton, haunting his nightmares and sometimes causing him to hallucinate. I am NOT ...more

3 The Splinter

What happened to awesome plots like accidentally murdering a health inspector or ripping pants? Selling chocolate or joining Squid's band? (Band Geeks :D) There used to be a whole lot of good plots out there, but now the new writers have resorted to generic, mind-numbing, boring, teeth grinding, grimacing, DISGUSTING plots such as this.

Let me explain. The show starts with Spongebob cooking krabby patties at work when he gets a splinter, pushed into his thumb violently and jerkedly, so much that you'd want to grimace and stuff your head into a pillow and holler and chew it up. Seriously. The way it goes into his thumb is just so... Disturbing...

The whole episode revolves around Spongebob trying to get the splinter out because Squidward threatens to send him home because of it. Now, that's a boring, generic plotline right there. What makes it the rightfully deserving number one is the horrible visuals. IF you're a fan of seeing spongebob's enlarged, gross, bloody, ...more

I love Band Geeks and Chocolate With Nuts! You're right. It's disturbing. - MiraiNikkiYunoGasai

"The Splinter" should be number one. It's gross and unfunny. Basically, the episode involves SpongeBob getting a splinter at work. Instead of telling Mr. Krabs about it. He continues working anyway and gets Patrick to help him (which, of course, only makes it work and caused it to get infected. Mr. Krabs soon finds out about it, and removes the splinter. However, for the sake of "comedy", a giant fountain of puss erupts from SpongeBob's thumb and on to Mr. Krabs. Gross! I don't know who thought this would be a good idea for an episode. I didn't laugh once during the episode.

This episode is really sickening. They show a hand-drawn close up, fully colored and illustrated picture of SpongeBob's sick thumb with puss and slime... After seeing that episode, I got rid of cable and got Netflix. Netflix doesn't have the new ones, just the old ones.

This episode is disgusting! Why would we want an episode about spongebob getting a splinter at work? Sounds disturbing in my opinion! Also the visuals were disgusting since we had to see Spongebob's thumb being greasy, bloody, gross and enlarged and having a splinted on it! It's a really disturbing episode! - UltraLunalaX

4 Stuck in the Wringer Stuck in the Wringer

I hate that episode. Spongebob finally say what he thinks to Patrick and the Bikini Bottom guys say that the culprit is SpongeBob! Seriously, the first time I heard this I felt like killing everyone who was in that park!

I just loathe this episode. Patrick is such a dick in this one and the worst part, when the fish told SpongeBob after yelling at Patrick for not helping him, "Ya know, kid, your body isn't the problem. It's your heart. You deserve what you've gotten." If I am there, I will murder those people. Yeah, what happened to the SpongeBob series after awesome plots like murdering a health inspector, forming a band, removing paint from a dollar, delivering a pizza, selling chocolate, camping, entering one's dream, constructing a silly theme park, etc. ? God. I WANT TO MURDER THOSE FISH SAYING SpongeBob DIDN'T HAVE A HEART BUT CAN'T THEY SEE THE HARDSHIPS HE'S BEEN THROUGH? Asss.

The writers forgot that the entire episode started on an ACCIDENT. Not KARMA. The only way that scene would've worked if Spongebob was acting like a selfish little brat for a stupid reason throughout the whole episode up to that point, not CRIPPLING him and giving him legitimate, PHYSICAL reason for Spongebob to act out.

I can only imagine what the writers would say to a paraplegic kid finally standing up to his neglectful parents. - alphadan12

I don't really like this episode. Patrick keeps on ruining SpongeBob's plans. Finally SpongeBob told Patrick. The most part I hate is when they turn on SpongeBob and the guy saying he doesn't have a heart. He does and they should not even butt in to SpongeBob and Patrick's business. They don't even understand what SpongeBob has been through with Patrick they just say that SpongeBob is the culprit just because they see it with their own eyes of SpongeBob yelling at Patrick. Seriously I just what to beat them up.

I think Pet Sitter Pat, One Coarse Meal and A Pal for Gary are the worst episodes of all time, but I am voting for Stuck in the Wringer because it should be higher, because in this episode SpongeBob gets stuck in a wringer and Patrick makes him stuck even more, when he could have pulled him out. Seriously that is mental retardation here. As much as I love Patrick, this is one episode where he is a terrible friend to SpongeBob because of Patrick. SpongeBob can't work at the Krusty Krab, he injures Squidward on accident, he can't eat a sundae, he can't move his hands, he gets a ball thrown in his face and even gets thrown out of a ride because of Patrick causing several injuries and he doesn't even apologize to SpongeBob. The only decent moment in this episode is when SpongeBob finally expresses his emotions to Patrick of how he is on the verge of breaking point because of Patrick telling him "How he is ruining his life! " But did SpongeBob have the right to shout at ...more - EJ0602

5 Pet Sitter Pat Pet Sitter Pat

This episode is Patrick at his worst. He keeps on torturing Gary while SpongeBob is away. The episode also makes SpongeBob worry about Gary unlike in A Pal For Gary, but the episode uses this as an excuse to torture Gary. The worst part is when Patrick tries to give Gary a bath. He uses a flamethrower and thinks "It looks like fun" and also thinks about using salt to dry him. Salt kills snails, is he crazy! Patrick is so stupid and terrible that he should die because he is the worst character on the show. Yes, even worse than Mr. Krabs. This episode is like a sequel to A Pal For Gary or a terrible rip off that needs to be killed now!

From 'The Card': "SpongeBob, you can't expect my normal brand of stupidity every time! I like to mix it up. Keep ya on your toes! "

I would have declared 'The Card' the worst only because of that (and the following events), but at least in that episode the only thing he was destroying was SpongeBob's trust for Patrick and the most valuable Mermaid Man Trading Card. Not a living creature!

After one of Patrick's lines in'"The Card', it is revealed all the undeserved, cruel torture Patrick gives Gary is intentional. He chases Gary down with a flamethrower, eats all his food (and SpongeBob's), looks for salt to "dry" Gary, and many more horrible actions.

I think with the card it is admitting that Patrick is doing anything stupid on purpose. - Fazbear97

Patrick, what happened to you? Your dumbness was charming and funny, but now you are a complete jerk! This episode is an example of making Patrick overly dumb, yet not knowing that that's not enough! Patrick tortured Gary, and didn't get a punishment, or was genuinely dumb, he was just a killer! Ow anthills burg to fix this show back to its glory! - wolfythefree

Pet Torture Pat is a better name. - Userguy44

6 Demolition Doofus Demolition Doofus

Mrs. Puff gets deflated, and is so sick of Spongebob that she wants him DEAD! She even tries to MURDER him when the other demolition derby guys fail to crush him.

She even says "Why are you still ALIVE? "

Way out of character, regardless of what Spongebob put her through. This is one seriously messed up episode.

I hate this episode, it's so evil. Mrs. Puff actually tries to kill SpongeBob, After this episode I just wanted Mrs. Puff to die. I can't believe she actually said 'Why are you still alive' And at the end, SpongeBob doesn't even get mad at Mrs. Puff for trying to kill him. One of the worst episodes of SpongeBob yet.

Both Spongebob and Mrs Puff were hateable in this episode. Puff tries to kill Spongebob and somehow she never got arrested for that. She gets arrested only for doing nothing. I too wanted to slap Spongebob in this episode because he made fun of Mrs Puff's injury showing no remorse to his actions but trying to kill the character is way too far. This looks like a Family Guy episode. - Hellohi

Just this episode makes Mrs. Puff one of my least favorite characters. Mrs. Puff was extremely bloodthirsty and evil in this episode, I know that SpongeBob ruined her life and almost killed her a couple of times but this was way too far. She tries to kill SpongeBob by putting him in a demolition derby, she even says "WHY ARE YOU STILL ALIVE? ". She was a total psychopath in this episode. One of my least favorite episodes ever.

7 Atlantis Squarepantis Atlantis Squarepantis

Just like its counterpart, Truth of Square, it had way too much build up. First there was just a lot of stupid ads saying "Spongebob is going to the legendary city of Atlantis! " And what makes it even more sad is the fact that Burger King HAD to advertise it with toys. What we expected was that he'd go there, explore Atlantis and meet King Neptune, but what we got was Spongebob and his friends go to Atlantis on a bus powered by singing. At the beginning, Spongebob and Patrick just pop bubbles with a camera. They then find the missing half of the Atlantis amulet. They then go to the museum where it just so happens that Mr. Krabs, Squidward and Sandy are there, and the put the amulet together. A bis then crashes through the ceiling and they get in. What makes this terrible is that it's just cheap CGI where it looks like they're just pasted onto it. And then they have to sing instead of using gas. So they sing. And all of the song is terrible and they went until they ran out ...more

And this is where SpongeBob died for me. Note that the writers of this episode also wrote "Sand Castles in the Sand", my 2nd favorite episode of SpongeBob ever only behind Band Geeks. There is no excuse for this garbage. The first big problem... WHY IN THE WORLD would you cast David Bowie for a spot, and then give quite literally every other character but him a singing part? That leads to the fact that the trailer never gave any signs of this being a musical. The songs themselves are ear-grating, and they somehow find a way to shoehorn characters in (Plankton, I'm looking at you). And while Plankton getting a tank that only shoots ice cream isn't a good twist anyway, they make it worse by showing it in the promo. That's right, in the promo there is a tank that shoots... Ice cream. On top of this, they give Sandy all of the fight. SpongeBob knows karate, Squidward would know karate in Season 9, and Mr. Krabs is a navy seal. Why is Sandy the only one truly fighting? The killer ...more

This episode was a T.V. movie episode. There were too many misleading ads, especially because of the fact that none of the promo ads stated the episode was actually a musical, with abysmal song nonetheless. The bus to Atlantis was powered by a godawful song, Atlantis was a futuristic alien city, Atlanteans look like they threw Squidward and Mark Chang in a blender, their leader is called Lord Royal Highness (how creative... ), more terrible songs, and Sandy is glorified too much in the fight scene. What more can I say? Oh wait... SPONGEBOB AND PATRICK GO TO ATLANTIS TO SEE THE OLDEST LIVING BUBBLE! A BUBBLE! The episode is that bad.

Unpopular opinion: Truth or Square is much better than this trite. - KalloFox34

8 SpongeBob, You're Fired! SpongeBob, You're Fired!

You guys can say what you want about A Pal for Gary and One Coarse Meal. Those episodes at least told a story. What story does this tell? SpongeBob gets fired, 15 minutes of crappy filler, he is hired again because of mopey dopey sad talk. This was a terrible episode just for the sheer fact that it will bore you so much, you'll need to be on life support just to NOT die of boredom. And speaking of life support, SpongeBob's life support is dead. Not to mention this episode not only screws the continuity of the old awesome episodes, but even the newer bad ones. Why the hell would SpongeBob get fired over a nickel!? It's already been shown in Stanley SquarePants that SpongeBob is fully capable of keeping the Krusty Krab alive on his own. Squidward at least does nothing of value for Mr. Krabs. He doesn't even have seniority anymore. It makes no sense and feels purely like a contrivance just to serve a half-crapped plot. Sure A Pal for Gary was just evil and One Coarse Meal REALLY screwed ...more

This episode ruins the whole plot of SpongeBob. SpongeBob has always been loyal to Mr. Krabs, and made the Krusty Krab millions of dollars, and in season 1-5, mr krabs never wants to fire SpongeBob. They were friends and everything, and then somehow mr krabs has to save a nickel and fires his most important employee. So then the plot of this episode changes millions of times, like, SpongeBob is fired, then SpongeBob gets digusting, then SpongeBob goes to sandy for a taste test for some reason, then Patrick gets poisoned and grows a mini head on his body (family guy ripoff), then SpongeBob gets fired out of ridiculous restaurants which doesn't make sense because Krusty Krab, weenie hut, and chum bucket are the only restaurants in the Bikini Bottom. But not anymore! And since when did the bosses of the restaurants have to dress like food? Then the bosses hate SpongeBob fire him, then fight to get him back, and then SpongeBob comes back to the Krusty Krab. This episode is too stupid. It ...more

This episode frustrates me beyond belief because the idea of SpongeBob being fired had potential to be a good episode had the plot taken a different route. SpongeBob getting fired may have been an interesting idea for an episode had he not been fired in order that Krabs could save a nickel. It would have been far more entertaining if SpongeBob had been fired for a good reason perhaps for getting up to some sort of mischief with Patrick. It would have been far better to see SpongeBob get fired for some sort of mischief, realise he had done wrong, learn a lesson and fight to win Mr Krabs trust back!... But no the new writers would rather he got fired for no reason, spiralled into depression, failed at every other job he tried to get before eventually ending up back at the krusty Krab and everything is just fine and dandy, no bad feelings towards Mr Krabs for his heartless decision to fire him in the first place... This episode frustrates me so much I could scream.

I feel like this episode deserves the top spot because, above all else, it's a complete waste of time. It's an episode with a vaguely interesting, if a bit tepid, premise with weak execution in complete totality. Chalked full of filler, this episode is a large amount of nothing. Somehow, I think that's almost more insulting than any of the other bad episodes, because at least with something like A Pal for Gary, there's something to talk about, and you're not angry with how bored you are. - regularshowman

9 Yours Mine and Mine Yours Mine and Mine

I hate Patrick so much in this episode. He acts like a total douche throughout the damn episode. Patrick's stupidity sometimes just goes way too far. GET THE OLD WRITERS BACK AND FIRE THE NEW ONES FOR GOD SAKE!

This episode made me want to throw my television out the window. I mean, there are times when we're watching Spongebob and we ask ourselves 'Why Patrick is so painfully naive? '... but this episode right here just CROSSES THE LINE. First of all, Patrick basically steals Spongebobs money, falsely states that he's and I quote "familiar with the concept of sharing", and then gorges on the meal they're supposed to be "sharing". That alone makes me sick. Then after Patrick complains about not having a toy with his meal like a 3 year old, Spongebob gets the toy for like 2 minutes and when he gives Patrick a turn Patrick says "aren't you supposed to be working? " To try and get Spongebob in trouble. I mean, he doesn't even let Spongebob touch the Patty Pal, that's down right selfish. But then he plays with the toy all night and STILL doesn't let Spongebob have it, this is just becoming wrong on so many levels. Then after Sandy tries to help them with their problem, they fight over it again. ...more

This was the episode I hated the most as a little kid. I still hate this episode the most. Patrick is such a bad influence. I hate that towards the end they paint Spongebob as the bad guy. I honestly don't blame Spongebob for acting the way he did towards the end. What was he supposed too do? No parents to talk to, the cops won't care, there isn't anyone to talk this out with. You know that kid who never shares anything with anyone, and there only friends are young kids. That's Patrick! Even when I was like 6 or 7 I despised this episode. The only good thing in this episode is the washing your hair joke! It made me hate Patrick's character.

Patrick act like a child here. - Userguy44

10 Little Yellow Book Little Yellow Book

I would agree squidward is unlikeable here if it wasn't for SpongeBob breaking into his house multiple times, stealing his belongings under the guise of it being borrowing, psychologically tormenting him, ruining his chances of getting into the cephalopod lodge, making him have to go back to school because of squidward running away from practically a stalker, ripping off his toenail and turning him into a baby in the episode right before this one I feel that SpongeBob honestly deserved worse than squidward reading his diary and the ending I honestly feel was satisfying it said to me that squidward could finally get revenge on SpongeBob for everything he's done to him now I will agree the episode isn't amazing I mean the townspeople can go and die in a fire but to everyone who thinks squidward is now unlikeable oh trust me the writers will make a few more torture episodes for him. Now I no a lot of people probably hate my opinion but I don't care. - Gamer4life

Remember Fools in April? The good episode from Season 1? Think of this as it's evil twin. Or better yet, it took this episode, made it worse, and SHAT on it.

In this episode, after finding out about SpongeBob's diary, Squidward reads it in front of the entire Krusty Krab. After finding out about it, SpongeBob runs out crying.

Now, in a good episode like Fools in April, Squidward would feel guilty about it. But he doesn't, even after the customers tell him off.

Then, the Bikini Bottomites start to make Squidward feel as guilty as possible; he loses his house just because he read someone else's diary!

Finally, Squidward feels guilty, and he apologizes to SpongeBob. And what happens next? He reads SpongeBob's OTHER diary and he ends the episode, while having tomatoes thrown at him, saying "I don't care! This is so worth it! "

Well, you've done it Nickelodeon. You've made Squidward unlikable. Excuse me while I shove my head into an oven over it. (Haha, ...more

When Mr. Krabs is the most likable character in the episode, you know you've screwed up bad.

11 Dear Vikings

The main reason that this episode was the final nail for me.
Spongebob: "What's a Viking? "
Obviously, the new writers didn't see the Bubble Buddy Episode!

Sorry to bust your bubble (haha, very funny, not) but bubble buddy took place in Season 1, and this episode took place in Season 6. - Gamecubesarecool193

The lack of jokes in this is sad and you can see that the writers are trying SO HARD to get a laugh with the jokes RIGHT UP IN YOUR FACE but they're all dull. I will admit that the "all the vikings on the ship are named Olaf" joke got me the first time, but after that it was just stupid. Not to mention the HORRIBLE ENDING! The main conflict was thrown in so late that no one could have expected it. When it DID come however, it was so late in the episode that it ended after about 30 seconds. PATHETIC!

This was the first SpongeBob episode I actually hated. The show was already pretty weak for me for a while before this episode came out, but I was mostly in denial and just thought that I was "outgrowing" it. But then this episode happened and it just hit me that this show really was going downhill.

This episode was just unbelievable. Every character is so horribly oversimplified, the jokes were bad, the plot was uninteresting. In fact the whole thing felt like a bad preschool show. SpongeBob SquarePants is supposed to be a smart kids show, that anyone of any age could enjoy. This episode is so bad it could insult a 4 year old's intelligence. Then you have the poor excuse of an ending, "now that's what I call, a viking sized adventure".

On a personal level it rubs off me bad because before this I would try to make the case that SpongeBob isn't just for little kids, then they pull this episode as a stab to the back.

They had to put Vikings in spongebob. Who is responsible for that idea?

12 Truth or Square Truth or Square

Hello, my opinion on this episode is that I call it unique. It has a retarded plot but it is different not only because it is the 10th anniversary, but it intends to keep an intriguing background throughout. So it is stupidly unique. So don't get me wrong, it is a very stupid episode, but is an outcast than the others.

It's not nearly as bad as people make it out to be. The only reason people hate it is because the commercials lied about its content. - KalloFox34

I used to love this episode way more than it deserved. Honestly, it still has a strange sort of place in my heart, despite how not good it is, but it's still very not good.

Although that one song near the beginning is still super good. - regularshowman

This episode would be just mediocre if it was a normal episode, as then it's biggest crime would be being boring, and I don't really judge episodes by their marketing. Come on, if I did, I would be hating on To Squarepants or Not to Squarepants because it was a ratings trap. Overall, shouldn't be on here in my opinion.

13 To Love a Patty

SpongeBob falls in love with a Krabby Patty and names it "Patty" then it gets spoiled and is too disgusting to look at. 'enough said

I thought he has a crush on Sandy, he kill the shell for a kraby patty. - ambre.messiimes

Out of all the SpongeBob episodes out there, this is the only episode that gives me the nagging urge to call the police on it. - regularshowman

The whole episode is offensive I mean seriously SpongeBob falls in love with a Krabby Patty and when his friends try to help him and prevent him from falling in love with a patty What does SpongeBob do? Ignore them and have a "date with the patty" Holly God you have to be serious a DATE with a non-living object. When close to the end, there's a close up where we see a rotten patty. If a grown adult sees it they would be perfectly fine but SpongeBob SquarePants is a show for EVERYBODY so that means kids also watch the show and if they see that rotten patty some of them will puke but it doesn't end there because SpongeBob that finally realized how weird he was acting finally decides to eat the patty. Yep, SpongeBob in front of many viewers decides to eat, chew, and swallow that Krabby patty. I don't want to talk about this episode any more.

14 Face Freeze!

How can tou like this episode?
Characters' frozen faces are just looks horrible and disgusting!
Can you watch this without your eye patch?

And spongebob and patrick's making faces are just disgusting and horrible.
Do you want to making faces like them in this episode?
I'll say that I never do this.

That's the reason why I think it was the worst Spongebob episode ever!

This episode is awful. Spongebob and Patrick's faces are just plain disturbing! It's not even remotely funny.

Oh god, I remember the time I watched this episode of garbage. Here is my top 10 worst:

10. House Fancy
9. Truth or Square (Very Disappointing)
8. Dear Vikings
7. Trenchbillies
6. Atlantis Squarepantis (God Awful)
5. The Splinter (Gross)
4. All the 2013 episodes
3. Planet of the Jellyfish (I'm sorry. Terrible)
2. Fear of a Krabby Patty (Very Annoying)
1. Face Freeze
This should be #1

Bottom line. This is the biggest disgrace to spongebob.

I'm sorry, but Planet of the Jellyfish was easily the best modern episode

I don't like this episode! Its just spongebob and patrick making up disturbing, horrible and ugly faces! Its not even funny! Just gross! - UltraLunalaX

15 Squid Baby Squid Baby

Ha ha, it's funny because the doctor told Spongebob and Patrick not to harm Sqidward's head, but that's exactly what they do anyway! Head trauma is hilarious, isn't it?!

No. No, it's not. It's actually quite disturbing. Can you imagine if they used an actual baby instead of Squidward? The whole scenario would be even more horrifying. On top of that, the so-called "jokes" warrant groans at best, and are cringe-worthy at worst. This episode ruined the "MY LEG" gag, for god's sake. What has this show become?!

Squidward gets a head injury and starts acting like an infant. Even the ending is disgusting.

That episode is what gave birth to the fetish drawings of fictional characters being depicted as infants acting like that and crapping on their diapers.

UGH! This should be #1, When Squidwards head was under the pavement, I wanted to stick my hand through the T.V. , grab Spongebob, tie him up, blindfold him, get a huge kitchen knife and stab him. I hate this one with a passion just like I do the whole series!

Two: The writers scapegoat Sandy for a number of coldhearted scenes. - devonshippam

I got a splitting headache when I watched this. - Gods-Judgement

It's easily the worst of the worst in my opinion. I feel really sorry for Squidward - Peppapigsucks

This episode gets really start to hate it. The story is about Squidward wants to join the town man choirs (as a dream), but Spongebob (as the worse) keep to bothering Squidward to join the town man choirs, keep following Squidward even more worse. The jellyfish field scene is a bunch of jellyfishes surround Squidward as for Spongebob starts singing extremely more worse. For Squidward, he didn't even starts singing because the jellyfishes shock him for like 1 second. So Squidward tie Spongebob and leave him. But makes extremely even more and more worse that Spongebob call the voice of the god and show at the audition. I really hate this episode because it keep bother Squidward over and over and over and over and over again!

This is such a lazy episode. It IS insulting. The humor is something a group of middle school guys could come up with. Boating Buddies, The Splinter, Cephalopod Lodge, Spongehenge were probably more tolerable than this.

18 Squid's Visit

I have to add this episode? This episode is incredibly creepy. SpongeBob makes an exact replica of squidwards inside house and takes his vacuum cleaner just to visit him. And when I say exact replica, I am not kidding. He has every little detail, even a chip in the paint. If that isn't creepy, tell me what is

I didn't realize it when I was a kid, but this episode has always been incredibly freaky. Other episodes like One Coarse Meal may have been disheartening, but it never could make your skin crawl like this one does. Other than being the classic Squidward Torture, it gets topped off by downright mental obsessiveness. Its episodes like these that make you wonder why SpongeBob is even liked as a character anymore. I always skipped this episode when I was younger and continue to do so. But unlike other creepy episodes like Graveyard Shift and Rock Bottom which finally got resolved after the episode, this episode is ended with Squidward dating his vacuum cleaner and the casserole scene. It leaves a bitter after taste which is why this episode is so hated. - Gods-Judgement

Squid's visit is very debatably worthy of falling into the bottom 10 episodes. The main problem with the episode isn't the uncanny replica of squidward's house. It's the fact that this episode alone acknowledges that SpongeBob is a creepy person. There was no reason for SpongeBob to invite squidward over; it's almost like his invitation was nothing short of a contrived kidnapping. This kind of stuff is stated in earnest, meaning that the writers here wanted to showcase the character of season 6 SpongeBob. Season 6 SpongeBob is not naïve or charming. He is demented and creepy. Also, the episodic structure is very flimsy. The idea here is SpongeBob getting squidward to come to his house. Nothing here is funny. Boating buddies may be very annoying. But this episode is excessively creepy. The plot was very aware of the problem that it refused to fix. It also showcases the worst problems with SpongeBob's new character. This episode belongs in the top 10 worst because of its intent to go ...more

Not only is this episode INCREDIBLY creepy, its borderline psychotic! Spongebob has snuck inside squidward's house enough times to memorize every little detail, to even a scratch in the paint! Spongebob has probably snuck inside Squidward's house THOUSANDS and I mean THOUSANDS of times! That's 2 to 3 times a day for the past 5 to 7 years or so! It is AMAZING that this was aloud to be aired! This should never be televised again.

19 Boating Buddies

Out of the few post-movie episodes I've watched, this is easily the worst one I've come across. The jokes try so hard to make you laugh, but I just find them all dull. Not to mention it's one of many Squidward Torture Porns.

The episode starts with Spongebob grooming Gary until he hears what he thinks is 'a strange noise'. While investigating what it is, he decides to get Squidward into trouble once again. While trying to escape in a boat, Squidward destroys a stop sign and gets assigned to Boating School.

When asked by Mrs. Puff, Squidward tries to explain what happened while Spongebob stares him down. When Squidward sits down again, Spongebob starts breathing heavily at him in such a creepy way! You see where I'm going with this?

Also, throughout this episode, Squidward gets beaten up by some muscular fish twice. Squidward torture taken too far, am I wrong? Anyway, after being beaten up for the second time, Squidward ends up in a full body cast right before the ...more

This episode is annoying. There are so many reasons people hate this episode. It's actually debatably worse than the splinter because it is very hard to sit through with SpongeBob's horribly annoying behavior! but the worst part is squidward's undeserved misery. Say what you want about him in little yellow book. But this episode is punishing him by shoehorning him into boating school and keeping the frown on his face from beginning to end. In little yellow book, squidward got punished for stealing SpongeBob's diary. But the townspeople didn't. However, stealing the diary was squidward's fault to begin with, so there was at least some logic. This episode has no excuse, Mrs. Puff is letting SpongeBob ruin squidward's day. Giving this episode the benefit of the doubt, SpongeBob was indirectly causing squidward's misery. This means it was not the intent to make squidward upset. In choir boys, there was a cause for squidward's torment. Granted, it was horribly unfunny, but made more sense ...more

Squidward gets all his bones broken

What's there to hate in this episode? Here's a shorter list: What is there to LIKE? Boating Buddies is the epitome of creepiness (for SpongeBob at least). He's literally stalking Squidward the entire episode, and no one (NOT EVEN MRS. PUFF) seems to care about Squidward. Do I even need to mention that it's a Squidward Torture Porn? I really don't have to say much about this episode, because we all know its problems.

20 Are You Happy Now?

This episode is weak on it's own. It begins with Squidward not being able to remember his "happiest memory" (what about episodes such as Band Geeks and House Fancy, where he actually gets to win? ). He becomes depressed, and it gets worse when the episode references suicide TWICE. Once when Squidward sticks his head in his oven (to pull out some brownies) and when seemingly pulling a rope to hang himself (he's actually hanging a bird cage). This kind of stuff shouldn't be in a kids' show. No one thinks that suicide is funny; it's a very serious topic. If I had my say, I'd pull that episode off air and fire whoever thought it would actually make people laugh.

Worst episode, basically, what everyone else is saying and also the fact that at the end of the episode, Squidward implies that he literally wants to kill spongebob, and spongebob doesn't care. This is what I think was what was going on in spongebob's brain when this happened:
Oh no, squidward destroyed all the paper things of me, and is implying that he wants to kill me! This is a great time to act gay!

I thought One Coarse Meal was the worst episode until this aired. Both episodes share the same type of moment that makes each one completely irredeemable. Suicide jokes are not funny and do not belong in a kid's show.

But how does this episode handle the subject even worse than OCM? What makes it even more unnecessarily disturbing?

In OCM, Plankton's attempted suicide is caused by the actions of the antagonist (Mr Krabs), so we at least have a character that we have the right to hate. I'm not defending the episode by any means, but in Are You Happy Now? There is no antagonist. The only person consistently getting in the way of Squidward's success is Spongebob (surprise), but he is also the person trying to help Squidward through the whole episode so we can't really hate him.

The writers projected the dark and disturbing tone purely for the sake of sick "humour". There was no reason for it other than that it was supposed to be funny.

It wasn't. It REALLY ...more

21 Good Neighbors

My favorite part of this episode is "the opening parallel shots" of SpongeBob, Squidward, and Patrick sleeping. It's very nicely edited and is a nice way to start off the episode. Unfortunately, everything else about this episode is downhill from there. This is a Squidward torture episode done wrong. What does Squidward want to do in this episode? Just have a relaxing Sunday, and SpongeBob and Patrick ruin it beyond belief in ways that just aren't even funny. They're just so ignorant of the world around them and Squidward's emotions! There's not even an excuse of this episode. I mean, yes, there's Naughty Nautical Neighbors where Squidward acts like a jerk to SpongeBob and Patrick, then there's Jellyfishing where Squidward can be bandaged up so SpongeBob and Patrick don't know that he hates what they're doing. In this episode, they just have no excuse! They're just idiots, and none of it is funny, and there's also a random giant robot that Squidward's house turns into. It's ...more

This episode is such a strange misfire that it's uncanny. It's weird to think what the writers were thinking when they decided to make this. It's only mildly funny, not very good, and a strange exercise in torment for Squidward. One of the first of its kind, actually. - regularshowman

Illumnati conformed on hats. - Tgamez

The first I saw this episode, and as a 12 year old, It just pissed me off. SpongeBob and Patrick are just obnoxious buffoons all the way through, which is really annoying considering the fact I felt really bad for Squidward. It was the first time that I sympathized for him and started realize why he hates SpongeBob and Patrick so much. After seeing this episode, I wanted to actually kill SpongeBob, and that's saying something.

God, this episode is a nightmare. I can't believe the first time I watched this episode with my cousins. I was so uncomfortable that I thought this episode was worse than A Pal For Gary or One Coarse Meal. But what I can say, this is one of my new least favorite episodes. - DumbFriesNub

I find it overhated. I was terrified of watching it at first, but I actually like it nowadays.

23 Trench Billies

I seriously dread watching this episode the characters are creepy as hell the only of this episode I like is the part Patrick calls a musical challenge and also the part where they tried to go home they got out successfully but trying to making them trenchbillies making them take care of there mom for the rest of there lives if that were me I would turned down the offer for sure and got the heck out of there cause there no way I want to take care of there mother Spongebob and Patrick sure didn't want to either and if that were me I would come back with a Minigun and Kill everysingle of them trenchbillies I wish they would have made that part of the episode that would have been funny to watch but yeah Spongebob and Patrick did the right thing getting the heck out of there and the fact that they followed them to the Krusty Krab and lastly the last part of the episode I liked would have to been when they force Krabs to marry there the Leader of their Clan that was awesome with how much ...more

The episode was very BORING. - KalloFox34

Totally agreed! Horrible episode. It was just so stupid and pointless. I miss the old SpongeBob :(

Bo! Hiss! This episode is stupid and pointless? The Trenchbillies are disturbing and evil to Bikini Bottom citizens. He made Krabs marry the leader of their clan. I also hate how it draws away from the main point of the show. And the Trenchbillies want poor SpongeBob and Patrick to stay in their isolated society forever.

24 Shuffleboarding

The plot in this episode just gets scrapped halfway through.

This is a really bad episode, hardly any shuffle boarding. Most of it spent arresting people for stupid reasons, and at the end, SpongeBob and Patrick receive no punishment.
This episode has got to be at #1.

SpongeBob and Patrick pretend to be their favorite superheroes and end up arresting all those people for nothing! They even arrested an lady just because she was old! When they did this, I was so mad! Not only that, but there was no shuffleboarding at all! In the first scene, SpongeBob and Patrick are going to the tournament. In the next, they already have the trophies! Definitely the worst episode ever! How is this not number one?

Horrible episode where Spongebob and Patrick dress up as Mermaid man and Barnacle boy to pick up their shuffleboarding trophies as Mermaid man and Barnacle boy aren't capable of doing so due to them being injured, but we don't get to see any shuffleboarding in the entire episode. On their way back they suddenly come up with the idea that they should stop crime in bikini bottom as their heroes aren't capable of doing so but instead of helping people they end up throwing innocent citizens in jail for stupid reasons like throwing an unfinished krabby patty in the bin or chewing gum too loudly. They even arrest Manray and an old lady with him even though they didn't do anything remotely bad at all. The jail gets so full that it explodes causing all the citizens injury and then they start chasing after the real Mermaid man and Barnacle boy. I just wanted to throw Spongebob and Patrick in jail after watching this episode.

25 Fungus Among Us

I actually like this episode, and I don't think it's that gross.

I know, I am evil. - IcetailofWishClan

This would be my top eleven:

1. Fungus Among Us - It is not funny. The accent joke is kind of funny, though.
2. Demolition Doofus - Everything but SpongeBob winning the tournament is not funny or pleasant.
3. Trench Billies - The beginning of the episode was just enough to make me ignore the television completely. Overall, it is very boring.
4. What Ever Happened to SpongeBob? - It is just not funny.
5. Pet or Pests - I found it boring.
6. Someone's In The Kitchen with Sandy - Some of the jokes are funny, but it is most of the time boring.
7. The Splinter - It was not horrible and is very over-hated. It was just boring most of the time.
8. One Coarse Meal - It is quite boring. I think it is over-hated, though.
9. The Thing - It is boring.
10. Party Pooper Pants - Some of the jokes are hilarious, but this is truly where Patchy is at his worst.
11. Squidward's School for Grown-Ups - The opera scene and the Plankton scene are the only moments that are ...more

I find this episode to be pretty meh. At least I it's not as gross as SquidBob TentaclePants in my opinion.

This episode was SO GROSS! I nearly vomited after seeing it. Do not watch it if you just ate or are planning to eat.

26 WhoBob WhatPants?

Another terrible SpongeBob special with a wasted celebrity cameo. This special is nothing, but mean-spirited from the jokes to the characters. SpongeBob's friends are unnecessarily cruel to him when SpongeBob ruined everything by accident. There is even a joke offending the homeless when they can't even watch the episode. Squidward is the most unlikeable character here because he is excited that SpongeBob is gone, and doesn't feel guilty about what he said. The amnesia plot is cliche and pointless to the story. In the end, nothing changed and this whole special was pointless and a waste of time. Also, who could forget the most infamous part of the episode with the worst facial expression in the entire show.

The face never really grossed me out... - IcetailofWishClan

Horrible episode, I dislike it. True his friends had the right to be guilty for running Spongebob out of town, especially Squidward. Although he doesn't feel guilty because he is happy but only went for the reward. He should understand the friendship with Spongebob.

I know right this was boring and stupid. The only funny thing is were squidward smashes that sponge tracking device and says oops I dropped it

Funny this episode is about amnesia, since its VERY FORGETTABLE - Pieclone

27 House Fancy House Fancy

I can't believe that I had to add this episode to this list. Does the infamous toenail scene mean anything to you?

I do not like this episode. And no, it doesn't have to just do with the toenail scene. I did think a few of the jokes were funny, and the ending was pretty entertaining to watch, especially when Squilliam got his karma for being such an arrogant snob. Overall, though, the episode is rather dull and boring, it just seemed to drag on for a while. Overall, it's a bad episode in my opinion, but nothing lower. - IcetailofWishClan

Oh dear lord this episode

Its not just the toe scene. This episode was bad enough with its six minutes of NOTHING HAPPENING. Its boring and dull. And the ending is complete crap too

Lets talk about the toe scene
In all honesty this is the most greusome scene in spongebob history. Its graphic and actually has blood. And how it happens is very scary. I always have to gag when this part happens and in all honesty this is way worse than facefreeze (which wasnt even that gross in the first place)

This episode is very poor in my opinion. We have the infamous toenail scene, and we have a decent amount of filler here and there. The ending is passable, but not very justified. And the worst thing is, there are several episodes from this season that are even worse. - SamHalls2015

28 Slide Whistle Stooges

This is the first ever duo worst episode (This and its sister episode both were good/bad). The reason it's bad is that 1: SpongeBob and Patrick use their stupid face (The mouth is covered by the whistle, but looking at the eyes, you know it's a bad one) and the slide whistle to annoy Squidward. 2: Squidward freaks and finds a Slide Whistle and start playing it, making the entire city mad (Why aren't they also chasing SpongeBob and Patrick? They started it! ) and 3: After he gets injured, SpongeBob and Patrick play the Slider Whistle to make him happy and Bikini Bottom loves it (But why do they like them and not Squidward)? The story is based off of Idiot Box. SpongeBob and Patrick annoy Squidward with an item, causing him to use it, and then getting himself hurt or in trouble.

If you pause at the moments where SpongeBob and Patrick are about to enter Squidward's house, they will have evil faces. but you have to pause at an exact moment.

Spongebob and patrick really had to annoy squidward in this episode with a whistle, causing him to use it and end up in hospital. And what really makes me mad is the fact that in the end, all the bikini bottommies cheer when squidward falls down a cliff in the gasoline truck and had a whistle stuck to his throat in hospital.

THIS IS MY LEAST FAVORITE EPISODE OF ANY T.V. sHOW EVER. No, I'm serious. Episode starts off with Squidward trying to relax, and SpongeBob and Patrick annoy him with slide whistles. Squidward gets annoyed, and goes to get away, but SpongeBob and Patrick follow him making the annoying slide whistle sound. Oh, and the slide whistle sound can give you headaches, as it did me. Worse, it plays FULL EPISODE. Let's continue. Squidward starts slide whistling with SpongeBob and Patrick because he is panicked (what? ) and annoys the residents of Bikini Bottom( the residents are not annoyed by SpongeBob and Patrick, of course). However Squidward is to happy and excited (wait... What is going on! ) to stop, so he jumps in a gasoline truck to escape the crowd. He kicks out the previous driver(Umm..) And starts driving with his feet while slide whistling (Good message to teach children, writers! ). He is so happy, that he doesn't notice a cliff until it is too late. The gasoline truck explodes, ...more

29 Clash of Triton

Remember the commercial about an epic battle between SpongeBob and triton? There was not a fight at all just triton firing a laser at the city and crashing a car into the krusty Krab. A terrible episode.

This episode got me and many others excited for NOTHING. The commercials and games say it's "an epic battle between SpongeBob and triton" and let me tell you first hand that NO, it's not. Here's the REAL plot: Mr. Krabs hears that it's Neptune's Birthday, so he throws him a party to make money by charging citizens to watch him eat. Once Neptune arrives, SpongeBob remarks that the seat reserved "Triton" is empty, which makes Neptune upset to think of his son. He then explains why with a boring flashback, which shows that Neptune was cruel enough to lock up his son because he wanted to be a normal citizen and not a cruel all-powerful god with his mind set on world domination. So SpongeBob releases him, and bad things happen. Triton wrecks the town, and you thought from the advertising and game, that, "Oh! SpongeBob is going to get all muscular and slay Triton, and once he's defeated, Triton appoligizes to his father, and happily ever after! " Oh no, they do make up, but it has nothing ...more

This is a Dumb Episodes, Holy Crap! They are stupid when making this one.
And This whole clash thing made it worse, Why?
Because SpongeBob was responsibly for this whole mess, and all that Triton does is crash a Car into the Krusty Krab and fires a laser at the city, and that was all.
So yeah, there was no clash in there, but I heard that the original title for this episode was: Neptune's Party, and I swear this was better suiting title for this episode.
Oh, and there was a Digimon episode called: The Clash of WarGreymon, and I swear there's only one reason why that Digimon episode is better than the dumb SpongeBob episode with Triton: because The Clash of WarGreymon did actually had a Clash in there compared to Clash of Triton, anyway!

30 Smoothe Jazz at Bikini Bottom

This is one of my least favorite episodes of SpongeBob because, like everyone else is saying, Patrick's role was absolutely horrendous! First off, he eats Squidward's concert ticket, so SpongeBob and Squidward must call the radio station for a chance to win two free backstage passes. SpongeBob wins the contest, and everything goes okay from there, though SpongeBob was being annoying to Squidward. They enter the concert, the performance is normal, until Patrick returns! You thought he wasn't going to be back, but, boy, were you wrong! This time, he is even worse than he was at the beginning of the episode! He shows up out of nowhere in the middle of the performance for one reason: nachos. Excuse me, I have a question... how did he get into the concert in the first place? Did he buy a ticket? I don't know. Maybe he sneaked into the concert without getting caught, or bought one just for the sake of nachos. Anyway, he sees Squidward's backstage pass and eats it. Then, SpongeBob tries to ...more - Target

Sure, One Coarse Meal is technically worse, and A Pal For Gary is definitely worse, but I vote for this because, I speak for almost EVERY Spongebob fan out there when I say that Smoothe Jazz at Bikini Bottom made us INFURIATED because of how bad the writing is and how frustrating Squidward's treatment is.

"cough" "cough" Squidward torture porn. Also Patrick was the worst character in this episode! - UltraLunalaX

This episode made me want to MURDER Patrick because he ate squidward's ticket, Again he came out of NOWHERE and ate Squidward's and SpongeBob's backstage passes, and not only THAT he came up on stage and completely INTERUPPTED Kelpy G's concert! God, I just wanted to come in to the T.V. and beat up that stupid and lousy pink jerk.

This episode just showcases Patrick's new-found levels of stupidity, completely ignoring the misdeeds of his obnoxious sister. And did she really need to be so horribly stupid, obnoxious, and destructive? It seemed to be a re-do of the Monster Who Came to Bikini Bottom, where Patrick also befriends a huge, destructive beast.

33 SpongeHenge

If you've been living under a rock, this is my personal least favorite episode. I've already made an entire rant on it a few years ago, and while there a few things in that video that are a little bit odd, the critique mostly stands. To give a quick recap, this episode is not funny at all, has a horrifying ending, and the entire thing feels like a parody to a movie that doesn't even exist. Yes, it's a reference to "Planet of the Apes", yes, it's a reference to "Stonehenge," but the entire thing feels like it's trying to parody something, and if I can tell it's trying to parody something, but I can't tell what it's trying to parody, that's a complete failure, and if it's not trying to parody anything, then the story of itself is just incredibly odd and mean spirited. I no longer think this is officially the worst episode of the show, but it's still my personal least favorite episode because this was the episode that was so bad, so frustrating, so un-SpongeBob like, ...more

Worst episode I've seen. The plot was boring, unfunny and similar to Nature Pants. The '3000 years later' was creepy and unnecessary and the bit where SpongeBob finds the Krusty Krab buried was just as bad!

34 Pet or Pests

My problems:

-SpongeBob is more out of character than usual. He acts like a complete weirdo.

-There's a continuity error. Larry doesn't even know who SpongeBob is.

-The art is extremely weird. SpongeBob's huge cheeks reach their peak here, being there when they aren't supposed to be (when he's frowning, for example) and being gigantic.

-Everyone's OOC. No one wants to help SpongeBob, not even Patrick, his supposed best friend, and the worms are just too freaky-looking for my tastes. Pets Or Pests is crappy even among the other Season 6 dreck, and that's saying something right there.

-Pets Or Pests is simply the nadir of SpongeBob SquarePants. Nothing here isn't flanderized, and I didn't laugh once. SpongeBob and Patrick act like utterly moronic little brain damaged kids here, Spongey cries too much, and... Just ugh. I could be here all day if I went on. I'll just end with this:
Pets Or Pests isn't just the worst Season 6 episode (and that's crappy ...more

You guys act like this show had any continuity to begin with though - happyhappyjoyjoy

I almost couldn't vote on this list, but when I saw this, I knew that this was the only one on this list I truly hated. SpongeBob is so stupid by the end of this episode! He's like a dummy! I have been a huge fan for years of this show and SpongeBob was not this stupid in seasons 1, 2 3, 4, or even 5. I Was very offended! So this, I think, is the worst SpongeBob episode ever put on the T.V. screen

One thing that surprises me about the modern SpongeBob fanbase is that everyone is hating things like A Pal For Gary or Stuck in the Wringer that there are a few episodes that people forget. This is one of them.

In this episode, SpongeBob adopts a stray worm, which gives BIRTH over night. Then, when Gary scares the worm off, SpongeBob is left to deal with the (disgusting) babies.

The gross-out in this episode is just impressive at some times. And the ending, like always, is stupid!

SpongeBob: "Hi Larry! "
Larry: "Do I know you? "

Obviously, those crappy new writers didn't see Ripped Pants, MuscleBob BuffPants, and SpongeGuard on Duty!

35 Rodeo Daze

This episode should be on the top ten worst episodes. Then again there's a lot of terrible post-2004 SpongeBob episodes to chose from so I can't blame anyone.

But boy is this episode horrific. Its like it was written by a five year old, edited by a two year old and then directed by a cactus. Here's what I hate

Sandy could apparentely just leave for Texas anytime she wants. Kind of goes against that Texas episode, don't you think?

That terrible rodeo song.
SpongeBob out about Sandy's safety because of the rodeo clowns. Because scary clown jokes are so funny and never will get old I guess.

Boring stuff happens in between when SpongeBob's friends and neighbors refuse to help him "save" Sandy.

SpongeBob kidnaps the entire city to save Sandy by taking them all to Texas through giant bubbles. I hope the origin of this brilliant idea was from one of the writer's two year old toddler.

Then we have the exciting climax of Sandy doing rodeo on a ...more

This is the episode that truly convinced me that the new writers simply don't care anymore. It feels like they made this episode just so they could have an episode, no thought or creativity involved. There is a ton of pointless filler, the climax is less than 20 seconds (and very uninteresting), and the song is atrocious. Not one moment made me feel like the writers put any effort into this episode at all, which is why it is in my top 5 worst episodes of all time.

This episode is terrible. Spongebob just freaks out because Sandy talked about rodeo clown in her (awful) song, and he forces everyone to come "save" her. And on top of that he makes her lose.

This episode is terrific. It starts off when Sandy is told to join a rodeo in Texas. SpongeBob and Patrick then asks Sandy what a rodeo is *insert rodeo song here* SpongeBob then told Sandy to not go to the rodeo because there was a part in the song about clowns and apparently SpongeBob is terrified of clowns. When Sandy blasts off to Texas SpongeBob then overreacts and forces everybody to help Sandy but no one wanted to help him now what does SpongeBob do now? Kidnap the hole town inside a giant bubble(including himself and his house) of course everyone denied his plan and tried to destroy the bubble that's right destroy the bubble which can probably cause fatality. Finally they arrived in Texas and the bubble is blown straight to the rodeo causing them to land while in the middle of the event so now Sandy has to save all of them. So that means the rescue mission was completely useless.

36 All That Glitters

I LOATHE THIS EPISODE SO MUCH! Where do I even begin? Excessive screaming and crying that gets so annoying and ear grading, Spongebob being NAKED for nearly HALF of the episode, a very poorly executed moral, French stereotypes that aren't funny, the spatula being sentient for no reason, a joke about the doctor who is in the episode because "Spat" gets broken, and the joke is that he is practicing on his acting skills, which is brought up TWICE by the way, and the jokes are dragged on for WAY too long. I would elaborate on this better, but there are people on Youtube and Deviantart who do it better than I could, but I will say that this is my most hated episode of the entire series!

Wretched. Not my least favorite of all time, but it needs to be way higher. That brief sequence when he was crying at that baby in the stroller and she was crying back was really disturbing. Butt naked trying to beg for a spatula in a wheelchair to come back? Creepy.

Fun fact: It's rip-off(Evil Spatula) is billion times better. - Hellohi

This song should really be in the top ten. The plot is so stupid. SpongeBob makes a big deal about his spatula breaking and takes it to the hospital. A spatula is an inanimate object, if it breaks SpongeBob can just get some tape and fix it or buy a new one. Unfortunately though since Nickelodeon is running out of ideas they decided to make a soap opera about SpongeBob breaking his spatula. Definitely one of the worst SpongeBob episodes, the episode where squid ward turns into a baby is pretty stupid and terrible as well. I miss old SpongeBob! - Imreallyboredrightnow

38 Karate Island

I have a memory of watching "100 best SpongeBob episodes". This was maybe 6 years ago. I remember "Procrastination" being number 100. 2 days later I was watching again and it was number 1. It was "Karate Island". The thing is, this was decided by a poll. I was so mad... This episode was pathetic... It was so... Stupid. Jell donuts? Seriously? Why do people think it is good? It's my least favorite episode (excluding the ones that have been 2010-12, I haven't seen a single one of those. )

First saw this episode on some guy's "10 worst" list, thought he sounded like a jerk and the premise looked great, so I wanted to see it. I should've listened.

The gags in this episode were stunningly lame and unfunny, especially for Spongebob. Most of them were the worst kind of what I like to call "escalation jokes" (*insert person/thing here* is THAT random, THAT stupid, THAT obvious) - the been there, done that kind, which forget any reason this kind of thing was ever funny in the first place:

-Why do Spongebob and Sandy have a hunch they spotted Karate Island? Cut to the Island... and the sign is THAT big! Didn't see that coming, didya? (Yes.)
-What do the bad guys use to fight Sandy? Iron tickle fingers and big kissing lips!...Random!
-How does Sandy beat them? Giving them jelly donuts! (Because nobody can resist them!...random? ) And blow-drying their lips! And then afterwards, the lips crumble and fall off! Funny?
-And what was the bad guy's plan? To ...more

This episode is passable, but it's nowhere near the best of the series as the series potrays it. It's on par with some of the 17 weaker pre-movie episodes, but it's not as bad as Party Pooper Pants, nor I Was a Teenage Gary. - SamHalls2015

The thing I found interesting is that the whole time sandy never does any actual karate. She uses donuts, hair dryers, and convenience!

39 New Fish in Town

No that doesn't! New Fish In Town was great, All That Glitters was HORRIBLE!

It really isn't that bad.

I think it's an okay idea, but it's just done too dull.

It was an interesting idea, but the way they did it was too boring.

This episode was kind of cruel - KalloFox34

More than kind of. It was COMPLETELY cruel to be perfectly honest. This is one of those episodes where SpongeBob and Patrick ruin Squidward's life YET AGAIN, like Good Neighbors. - Disney1994

It funny because Squid get hurt - regularshowman

That moment when squidward was in the illuminati

I am surprised Squidward hasn't hung himself yet.

41 Waiting

I actually like this episode. Not kidding.

This is not my least favorite, but it reaches my top 45 (there is a lot of terrible episodes in my opinion, so that is not a compliment by the way). This episode is just Spongebob staring at a mailbox. This episode's name says it all. This episode is nothing but waiting. Not only are the characters waiting, the viewers are WAITING FOR IT TO END!

This episode is basically as fun as watching your mailxbox for 10 minutes and I'm not kidding all I remember in this episode is spongebob sends in cereal box tops for a toy. Then he waits about 8 minutes of the episode for it and then something about patrick got a fork for spongebob's birthday. Don't worry instead spongebob going to his party and maybe there being some good writing we see spongebob waiting for some mail. Oh and then the toy breaks and spongebob get mad at patrick and they both cry but then squidward fixes the toy and that's the episode

In this episode, SpongeBob sends off 99 box tops for a toy, then waits like crazy at a mailbox, refusing to do anything until the prize comes. When it finally does, he and Patrick cry over it breaking until Squidward realizes that it's the toy's FUNCTION. Pass.

42 Giant Squidward

Dear lord, this episode deserves more hate than it gets. The dialogue was very juvenile, and it felt like it was thrown together in less than an hour. Those idiotic background fish form an angry mob because Squidward DIDN'T SAY BLESS YOU WHEN HE SNEEZED. Yes kids, not saying excuse me is worthy of being stabbed and burnt.

Not saying "bless you" may not be polite, but that doesn't mean you have to be MURDERED!

The writers always try to screw with Squidward in some ridiculous way. In this episode, they make the citizens a bunch of douchebags and make Squidward illogically shrink back to normal size just as he was playing his awesome clarinet that SpongeBob and Patrick willingly made for him. Screw you writers. You guys just hate your audience. - Mcgillacuddy

43 The Battle of Bikini Bottom

Why do people NOT hate this DISGUSTING SpongeBob episode? Why? This episode sucks! Even The Splinter was less disgusting than this! How do people think this episode of SpongeBob is good, it is not good at all! It never will be and never has been! This episode deserves WAY more hate! It's doesn't get NEARLY the level of hate it deserves! Even worse, people actually LIKE this episode, which is not supposed to happen! The people who made this episode made a TERRIBLE SpongeBob episode! This episode is not supposed to be liked at all, ever! It is is not good in the least! Just because people like this disgusting SpongeBob episode does not mean it is good or great! No one should like this disgusting SpongeBob episode!

This is one of my favorite episodes... EVER what the hell is it doing on a hate list!? I can't even see why people would hate this episode its classic - islandersfan91

I think you guys got the moral wrong. I don't think that they meant to say that it was okay to be dirty, but I think they were trying to teach kids tolerance. Not to mention, you shouldn't judge shows based upon morals. - RalphBob

Really, you guys think this episode was funny? One Coarse Meal is lame, but not as bad as this abomination of a SpongeBob episode.

And NO, this episode isn't funny, it is DISGUSTING, and I didn't learn one single thing about friendship in this episode.

The moral of this episode, as SpongeBob puts it, is that "it matters not weather one is clean or dirty", and should get banned because it will kids nightmares beyond nightmares (it even gave me nightmares! ), and this episode isn't even 1% funny. It's true. I hate this episode so much, I'd rather watch The Splinter or House Fancy than watch this ever again.

And this Battle of Bikini Bottom truly is the hellspawn of SpongeBob episodes. If I had to chose between loving this episode and going to hell, I'd choose the latter.

44 The Original Fry Cook

I like this because it shows a new side to the Krusty Krab. Plus, the flashbacks were hilarious.

This isn't one of the worst, but it's pretty boring and Jim is a bad character.

This seems like a pile of crap when I notice: Didn't SpongeBob beat King Neptune? So, why the hell did they write this when they could've watched Neptune's Spatula?!

This is a really good episode

45 Breath of Fresh Squidward

The problem with this episode is that it's telling me it's OK when Spongebob does it, but it's not when Squidward does it. Every time Squidward tries to do something Spongebob would normally do, he gets treated like a creep. So the writers are hypocrites! GOOD TO KNOW! When Squidward steals Spongebob's life from him, you find it justified due to what happened at the beginning of the episode. But with the breakdown at the end, the episode is telling me I should not find it justified, I should find it wrong and abhorrent. Why do they do this? Well, keep in mind that the ending of A pal for Gary was intended to be funny. instead it came of as frustrating. In these sorts of episodes, the person you're supposed to hate ends up being the most sympathetic character.

Seriously? Not the worst but this one needs to be on this list. Basically, Squidward gets electrocuted by an electric fence he put up around his house to keep Spongebob and Patrick out of his house. Because of this electrocution, he becomes nice for some reason and then begins to become a better fry cook than Spongebob. In the end, Spongebob snaps (sending Squidward off in tears) in an extremely cold hearted moment. The episode ends with all three getting electrocuted and acting like Squidward (the funniest moment in the episode). I just can't stand how easily Spongebob snaps at Squidward for acting kind and then no one even says anything in Squidward's defense. Prime example of how mean spirited the episodes have gotten lately.

Spongebob got angry at Squidward for stealing his best friend. That's a reason for Spongebob to snap at him, but he's very hypocritical about it as well. - DCfnaf

I find this to be yet another great and underrated episode. - IcetailofWishClan

Still better than its sister episode.

46 Oral Report

Eh, not really bad. I've seen worse.

Ugh, the talking underwear was NOT funny, it was beyond disturbing. And the ending ripped off hall monitor

If SpongeBob doesn't do his oral report he will fail. if he does his oral report he will fail the driving test. - hurjelert

EVERY main problem with Modern SpongeBob can be summed up here.

Squidward torture
Stupid plot
Bully Patrick
Immoral Sandy
Stupid townspeople... Err...towns fish
Creepy imagery (underwear)
Arrested Mrs. Puff
Crying SpongeBob

Need I say more?

47 Kenny the Cat

This episode is boring beyond belief - KalloFox34

Isn't a Squirrel living under water enough? - ElSherlock

Why is this only #46

How can you make a SpongeBob episode as uncomfortable as possible? Spend half the episode smothering us with the fact that SpongeBob is obsessed with this guy, and then shove an awkward SpongeBob breaking down scene in the middle, with Kenny desperately grabbing for oxygen. Ugh... This episode was not torturous in the same way as Boating Buddies, The Thing, etc. , but the emotional soap opera tones of this episode make it painful to watch.

48 Blackened Sponge

The highest ranked decent episode on this list. Oh god... The next one isn't until I'm with Stupid at #56. - SamHalls2015

This episode I do not think deserves to be called the worst, but in my opinion this is the most generic SpongeBob episode. Usually being generic is a small problem, but here it is to such an extent it is jarring, and also SpongeBob here is unlikeable in general. Definitely in my top 20 least favorites.

I kinda like this episode, Its easily not an awesome episode, but its still good.

Not bad, I've seen worse - islandersfan91

49 Penny Foolish

Penny Foolish is a VERY underhated episode that needs more hate than it gets. Basically, the plot is that Mr. Krabs sees SpongeBob pick up a penny, and he will do ANYTHING to get it. But it's understandable, because it's a magic penny, right? No. There is nothing special about this penny. Krabs just wants it because he can't stand someone other than him having money. He builds a huge theater, harasses SpongeBob for it, and can't stop thinking about it. But the worst of all was the charity night. He acted like this penny was like a huge outbreak of a disease. You writers know this is a real thing, right? Then he goes to SpongeBob's house and looks for it. Nothing so bad happens here except for him digging in Gary's shell. Then SpongeBob says it wasn't a penny after all! Wow, what a great ending. - Garythesnail

Mr. Krabs is so out of character in this episode. Overreacting over a penny! Come on! At least in Born Again Krabs, he gets comeuppance. This episode is also really boring.

Don't forget that SpongeBob threw out 500 dollars.

If I found out a penny I found was actually a 500 dollar bill, I'd run around like a chicken with it's head cut off. 'Dumb old 500 dollar bill' my right!

I used to dislike this episode strongly, but my opinion has since changed. I thought it was decently funny, there were some pretty good jokes such as the "I got to lay off the hot sauce" line. And I thought the story was decent, especially considering what happened at the beginning. However, there are TWO disturbing scenes that make me want to legitimately vomit, especially that abysmal ending. It would have been better if they didn't include it in the first place, because it caused me nightmares when I was younger. - IcetailofWishClan

Geez, this episode is nasty. All this episode is about is SpongeBob and squidward being fused together. Writers, are you TRYING to make us puke? When I first saw this episode, I NEARLY had nightmares. I almost stopped watching SpongeBob. Aw man, the ENDING was worse! In some European countries, the ending was BANNED. (Dang it, I wish I lived in Europe. ) Anyway, squidward said he didn't want to be stuck to SpongeBob, but SpongeBob LOVED being fused with squidward.
How did this get #58? This needs to be lower than that.
Writers, what are you trying to do? Make an "CatDog" reenactment or are you trying to make us puke?

The image for this says it all...

Nasty ending - Tgamez
