41 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!

42 Pest of the West

I actually found this episode quite enjoyable. It was funny, had an okay plot. Nothing bad I can say about this episode.

This is one of those episodes where you have nothing against it or for it. It's not totally catchy (Band Geeks, Chocolate With Nuts, Pizza Delivery, etc), but it's not terrible like the last few seasons (Are You Happy Now, The Splinter, Frozen Face Off, etc).

Hey! This was one of the few actually GOOD specials in seasons 6-9!

I remember loving the part of the ad where he went "How do y'do, y'all? " - Chikinan

43 Big Sister Sam

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.

Here are my top 10 reasons why this is the worst episode EVER (i have around 1 billion, but I am limiting to 10)
10.The writers try to make it funny, when it is not, and that makes it worse
9.Makes you think, "can there really be people (or sea creatures) who are that dumb? "
8.badly written
7.weird
6.gross
5.not funny at all
4.hurts your brain when you're trying to understand it
3.dumb
2.boring
1.ANNOYING

Eww Patrick's sister sounds like a man and speaks in short worded sentences. Why just give her a feminine voice?

This episode sucks and Patrick is stupid in this episode and does not care about his sister Sam destroying SpongeBob and Squideward's house and gets mad at SpongeBob for insulting his sister this should be higher on the list - Spongebobfan1

44 Best Day Ever

Are you ' SEERRIOUS! This is by far the worst episode of SpongeBob, no questions asked. Out of all the episodes on this list, this is 176!? Out of 189 episodes!? It has no value to it. SpongeBob is singing like an idiot all over the place, the artstyle of this episode sucks, SpongeBob has a day which shouldn't be that special at all, "everything goes 100% wrong on the 100% best day possible" cliche (it's not much of a cliche, but this episode makes it seem like one), all his friends are acting like jerks, SpongeBob has to be depressed for the whole episode, his friends, in the end say it's about them, when it's clearly SpongeBob's day, "oh no! Not more singing," no one except SpongeBob is participating in the ending to an already flawed episode, the ending didn't feel complete enough, and worst of all, this plot doesn't mean anything at all to the series. When you come down to it, all it is is his normal day routine, but flawed for the sake of the writers' idea of this episode. that's ...more

I don't get how this gets the right to be called a special. It is the same length of a regular episode and a low quality one. It had a top 100 SpongeBob episode marathon that really built me up. I was really excited, until I saw the episode. The song was horrible and this was the only SpongeBob episode to make me fall asleep.

This is by far the worst spongebob episode yet. SpongeBob on a whim plans the best day ever (without telling anyone). Then he is a living doormat and gives in. He lets Patrick use his jellyfishing net (they could've shared! ) and gives up that. Then he slaves away at his job. Everything goes wrong, and instead of confronting his friends about it, he THROWS A TEMPER TANTRUM at the end of squidward's concert like, "NO NO NO! I wanted today to be my best day ever! *sob/screams*" Then, after he went full toddler mode in front of 2000 people, his friends say, " Well, at least you helped us! " Then later he BURSTS into tears and what do his friends do? Give him an expensive stage production all night long! All the characters act like jerks.

I liked this one as a kid - the sun at the start of the song made me crack up every time. I think it's because he set his room on fire. - Chikinan

45 Gone

This episode is sickening to the soul.

The plot involves SpongeBob waking up one day to find out that everyone in bikini bottom is gone, just gone.

Now, if that were me, in that kind of situation, all alone, I would probably be scared. So, you expect SpongeBob would be too right? Well, in a way he does, but he literally starts going insane. He ends up hiding in his closet with a creepy replica of Patrick made of party meat, and even role plays as Squidward and Krabs at the Krusty Krab, creepy.

However, the real killing blow is the damn ending. Near the end, SpongeBob is walking in town, when all of a sudden a bus with everyone in town comes along. When Krabs gets off, he reveals that were all gone to celebrate a holiday dedicated to hating SpongeBob, in which they burn SpongeBob statues to the ground.

Now, if I were SpongeBob, I would be pretty pissed. I mean come on, a holiday celebrated toward the hatred of a specific individual? What the hell. If said ...more - Cobalt

I once thought this episode was funny, but then I realized that there is a day where everyone gets on a bus and burns down SpongeBob statues. It is a holiday dedicated to hating SpongeBob. What?!

All the townspeople are in on it, including Sandy and Patrick. Having every single person in your town reveal they all hate you would be traumatizing to anyone. Funny? Are you sure?

And then they do it to Patrick as soon as they get back. Everyone, including SpongeBob gets on the bus again and leaves.

I'd say this is only beaten out by Pet Sitter Pat (Patrick tortures Gary), Demolition Doofus (Ms. Puff wants to kill SpongeBob), and Atlantis SquarePantis (horrible ripoff and horrible songs and way too long).

That is exactly literally how I felt! I liked the episode, but reality catches up with you eventually. - matty925

Remember, even Gary went, so realizing that your own pet hates you, is just wrong. Yes there was A Pal for Gary. But anyways, SpongeBob didn't even cry. And do you remember what Patrick said in defense of No SpongeBob Day. "Everybody needs to get away from this" (Patrick imitates SpongeBob). And quoting from a comment "SpongeBob and Patrick are still friends". The reason he didn't cry was because SpongeBob was dumb and he was happy to have a day dedicated to him.

But I don't actually hate any SpongeBob episodes

-OK2016SpongeBob

The end is just mean even if you do like it the episode is boring until they try to make it creepy its not like we can creep kids out more then squids visit or sponge henge the townfalk are terrible even pre movie squidward wouldn't before I saw this episode I liked post movie spongebob not as good as pre movie but still good this episode gets less hate then it should it is my least favriot episode after yours mine and mine.

46 Hide and Then What Happens?

Patrick is so out of character in this episode. Do you guys remember the old episodes like tea at the treedome? Back in those episodes Patrick was actually really smart and wise, you can totally tell when he says, "do you mean she puts on airs? Or "hold your pinky up like this, the higher you hold it the fancier you are"? I miss that Patrick, now for the sake of trying to entertain little kids they turned Patrick into a total idiot. And this episode never made me laugh one and it was actually really boring. I wish SpongeBob would just stop now. It was gonna end this year but of course they delayed it. Nick is just too afraid to let SpongeBob go, because without SpongeBob Nick will crash and burn in a week. But at the same time, making more of these episodes is hurting the show really bad. We can only hope Nick will end SpongeBob and get a sudden stroke of genius and develop a show as fenominal as SpongeBob used to be before it's too late.

WARNING: This episode contains no humor whatsoever and complete stupidity. Viewer discretion is advised.

Come on! Patrick isn't THAT stupid!

The moral is the only good part.

47 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

Uh, Why did Mrs. Puff go to Jail Again after Doing Nothing Wrong? - ChiefMudkip

48 The Gift of Gum

Even though this episode can be gross, it's a relatively decent episode considering the low quality episodes after the movie.

I'm with Stupid, in my opinion, is actually a cool episode. I believe so.

Again, the worst episode in seasons 1-5 that isn't in season 5 would be I'm with Stupid. - Goatworlds

This is SO FRICKINH gross DAWG. - AlphaQ

49 The Cent of Money

Should be higher on the list. Mr. Krabs is being a heartless bastard on this one.

"second bad example" Pfft. Sailor Mouth is the most epic episode ever, better than Band Geeks (That's surprising) - Goatworlds

Mr Krabs is my most hated character on the show and this episode started my hatred for him he's a cheap one who scams everyone out their money, he should have gone to jail at the end of the episode

I f-ing hate this episode! Mr. Krabs tortures Gary and uses him to find (and steal) change. - DoroExploro13

50 Blackened Sponge

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

Not bad, I've seen worse - islandersfan91

I think this is a good episode

Why is Blackened Sponge on here? It's one of the best of Season 5. - SamHalls2015

51 Bubble Buddy

This Should Be Bubble Buddy Returns NOT BUBBLE BUDDY!. Bubble Buddy Returns is Just Stupid Bubble Buddy Isn't even shown until the end and the ending as a Rip-Off of Bubble Buddy whilst Bubble Buddy is Just Perfect. Stop Putting Old Episodes Into This Lists.

This episode should not on higher. This episode is good. Bubble Buddy Returns is the rip-off of this

This is one of the best SpongeBob's Ever! Should NOT be on this list!

Bubble Buddy was a good episode! Why is this episode on the list

Little Yellow Book came way after this episode and this episode is nothing like the horrible Little Yellow Book

WHAT? THIS IS MUCH HIGHER THAN IT'S RIPOFF? I'M DONE... - BlueSheepYT

52 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.

The concept is ok, but it was executed rather poorly.

53 Barnacle Face

This was just stupid. The jokes were dumb and not funny.
SpongeBob: At least you can still play the piano!
Pearl: How does that help?
SpongeBob: I have no idea. - Garythesnail

This show just lets you see how cheap Mr. Krabs is. He uses KrabBY PATTIES for a soap machine! Poor Pearl...

Mr. Krabs really needs to stop inventing and helping. He ruins people.

Why did Pearl have to go through this? This is basically Rise of Zitboy if it weren't funny. - Chikinan

54 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.

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

How does fertilizer make other not plant things grow? - hurjelert

Are you really trying to bring Science into SpongeBob? Damn, you people are just fishing for different ways to justify hating things. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Squidward should've used that kelp grow to make a giant broom and sweep the town away.

55 That Sinking Feeling

This is surprisingly very underrated (along with Penny Foolish).

What? This One Is a Masterpiece.

I actually like this one.

Like Breath of Fresh Squidward and Cephalopod Lodge, it ripped off Good Neighbours, only this time it's blatant. A Pal for Gary and One Coarse Meal at least came up with an original idea, though they were executed awfully (despite having a good introduction in One Coarse Meal), That Sinking Feeling doesn't even try to become original. I know SpongeBob You're Fired did worse, but That Sinking Feeling is the first episode where the animators just doesn't care if this episode ripped off any. I know some of the episode is creative, but all of the creative things (except for gelatin Squidward) have already appeared in earlier episodes. This episode is just a huge waste of time. It is my least favourite episode from Season 7 and the 5th worst 11 minute episode of the series, only behind Squid Baby, Little Yellow Book, Demolition Doofus and Choir Boys.

If you like this episode, I will respect your opinion. - SamHalls2015

56 Kenny the Cat

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.

First of all when do cats start breathing underwater? And second why do SpongeBob getting nominated for favorite cartoon every year even though the show SUCKS! What wrong with this generation? Do people know a good SpongeBob when you see one. And one thing Nickelodeon need's to cut back SpongeBob time slot because SpongeBob be airing about 9 or 10 times a day it's start get annoying.

First off, Kenny doesn't actually breath underwater. (Did you even see the episode? )

Second, I found the episode to be OK. I almost want to say they were trying.

Third, just because you don't like the new SpongeBob doesn't mean other can't like it.

Fourth, SpongeBob is the only GOOD show on Nick. If you cut out SpongeBob, we have to deal with Sanjay and Craig, and Breadwinners.

This reminds me of all the SpongeBob and Sonic crossovers I wrote when I was 7. MrEnter predicted this one too! - Chikinan

57 Plankton's Regular

This episode is insulting in many different ways. Plankton, in my opinion, is the only character (besides Gary) who is still likable. Probably because they put him at the ass of so many episodes, like THIS one.

In this episode, a man walks into the Chum Bucket and finds Plankton's food delicious. This is actually not a half-bad plot, but, of course, it gets ruined.

With this new regular customer under Plankton's belt, you'd think Mr. Krabs would cut him some slack and let him have ONE customer. But, no. Mr Krabs is too greedy. So, him and SpongeBob try to lure the customer away from Plankton: but it never works!

If I could rewrite this, it would be that plankton would be left with his regular customer. Want to know what the clueless writers did instead?! The guy has to go to the hospital for eating the chum, and Karen reveals she PAID the guy to eat the chum! That is just a slap in the face.

It really bugs me that we are expected to mindlessly side with Spongebob and Krabs for trying to steal Plankton's only ray of hope. Because as we all know, the Krusty Krab is the 'good' restaurant and the Chum Bucket is the 'evil' restaurant. Gimme a break, I'm not that stupid.

I don't think this episode should be worst. This episode was debatable.

Why is this so low? This is WAY worse than Penny Foolish. This should be in the teens, NOT at #70! Mr. Krabs can't let Plankton have ONE customer. How cheap can you get? Also, the twist at the end was just cruel to Plankton. Please upvote this!

58 Toy Store of Doom

I thought SpongeBob was 20 years old, being a grown man. Now that this episode was made, They made SpongeBob and Patrick look like 2 year olds! I mean that at the beginning of the episode, 3 things:
1. They're at Squidward's house (How did they manage to get in while Squidward was taking a shower)
2. They play with baby toys, dolls, chewed up action figures.
3. They're bored (Shouldn't SpongeBob be at work)
I mean for example, they cry over a COMING SOON! Sign thinking it's not real. They also hide in the Toy Store just to play with more toys, THEN they get scared of the dark when clearly the night sky light is coming through the window, THEN they battle a tiny small robot with bubbles.

I bet they hired a 2-year-old to direct this episode. Just STUPID, BORING, and DISTURBING.

I didn't really mind this episode. Sure, it felt silly and stupid at times, but the episode was decent. Not as good as Sand Castles in the Sand, but at least this episode wasn't atrocious. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Why is this on here? I mean, I don't like it in the slightest but it's not THAT bad. - Garythesnail

Exactly. I like this episode too. Just like Pest of The West, Best Day Ever, and Growth Sprout, people really overlook this episode to be a bad episode... When it's actually pretty good! - OhioStateBuckeyes

I actually kind of like this episode.

59 SquidBob TentaclePants

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?
STOP AIRING THIS EPISODE NOW!

Disgusting, really raised the bar of how disgusting the episodes can get. No thought went into the script writing at all.

It definitely is the WORST and most disgusting episode, because of the ending, where there was a gruesome image of all the main characters fused together and wriggling around. It has scarred me for life, and will for the rest of my life.

The ending is one of the most disturbing things I've seen - DoroExploro13

60 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?!

Why is The Original Fry Cook on here? I actually liked this episode. - SamHalls2015
