61 No Nose Knows

I detest this episode. It's boring, gross, and just stupid.

Patrick actually becomes SANE and NORMAL in this episode

Patrick is such a dumbass in this episode.

To be honest Patrick should have kept the nose. it made him more hygienic.

62 Funny Pants

There's only one word to describe how bad this episode is, and that is ANNOYING! You'd probably agree that after hearing SpongeBob's ear bleeding laugh for more that 15 seconds, it gets really annoying! Also, the jokes he was telling to Squidward weren't even funny. This episode is also what I like to call another one of those godforsaken Squidward Torture because in the ending, Squidward ends up in the hospital for laughing too much, but then SpongeBob gives a bit of his laughter to Squidward, and we get the same irritating laugh from the beginning of the episode. My God this episode just wants me to rip that little yellow bastard apart!

ARGH, OH THIS EPISODE IS SO ANNOYING! Funny Pants? More like Unfunny Pants!

Another day another dollar is a joke, for some reason. And worse stuff I don't need to talk about, Just watch it. Actually don't if you don't like banging your head against a wall.

I laughed the whole time on this episode.

63 Glove World R.I.P.

This one needs to be higher, like seriously what were the writers thinking they take a place with many great episodes and throw it in a garbage can with this episode. Basically the episode sucks because there are bad jokes and the writers make a really popular fun kids place into a fragile box. It's ridicoulous with this episode and even when SpongeBob and Patrick tried to fix the place up after the mascot quit after 3 weeks and guess what happens SpongeBob and Patrick can't get it done because at least SpongeBob tried but Patrick put no effort into the mascot which made the quarter of the place empty to the entire place into empty ghost town and then SpongeBob and Patrick lock themselves up on the entrance but then a plot hole is thrown in when Glove Universe is opening and Patrick threw the keys in to the Glove Lake because SpongeBob told him to keep it in a safe spot. 0/10 terrible episode and god awful. - DrMayonnaise

That's right, nostalgic settings are getting into the act now. I guess they ran out of characters to desecrate. Here, SpongeBob and Patrick find out glove world is closing down permanently. This episode is a sideshow of cheap jokes and an equally cheap plot, and the first sign of its cheapness is how fast they thrust us into this unreal scenario. They establish characters before putting them in conflict! They must be high!

Patrick and SpongeBob have gone to glove world multiple times and never once before have they mentioned it going downhill. Seriously things happen gradually and having it all of a sudden be trashy isn't realistic

Doesn't the ending just REEK of creativity?

64 Squidward's School for Grownups

Well it wasn't that bad. The episode was boring but lets stick to the positive

Worst episode of SpongeBob I've seen since sponge hence(which should be the top next to dear vikings) what the hell were SpongeBob and patrick doing at the start of the episode? Why were they yelling at passing car? The worst and most annoying thing on the show. The rest of the episode was boring and pointless until the opera sence, seriously!

The Sea Urchin was literally the best character ever. I think it's pretty awesome if you can disguise yourself as a beard, take a snooze on someone's face, and then dip out of the theater with a bow tie.

I don't even know what was the point of SpongeBob and Patrick being in this episode. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

65 Gullible Pants

What is this pure gold doing on here? Of course, Squid running around naked was a little disturbing, but this used to be my favorite episode as a kid. It's hilarious in my book.

I Actually Kind of Liked This Episode.

SB should know better since he pretty much has the Krusty Krab employee manual thing memorized.

This one is super funny - Spongebobipod

66 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


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.

67 Stanley S. SquarePants

Most annoying episode of SpongeBob in history. Stanley was just a cheap twin of SpongeBob ripoff of Patrick's episode where he couldn't do anything. :/

Now you see, SEGA could learn a lot from this episode. Don't make crappy look alikes of the main characters. I'm not hating on Shadow, or Silver, or Metal Sonic, because those are pretty cool, I'm talking about stupid stuff like the Tails Doll. Now I know probably everyone who's reading this is going "what the hell" but a lot of others get it. If you make a crappy rip off character (like Stanley or the Tails Doll) you get hate. And creepypasta. Mostly hate. - Pikachulover1

I really want Sonic to be successful, but SEGA isn't really trying to make it successful. I liked Sonic Unleashed, I liked Sonic Colours, I liked Sonic 4, I loved Sonic Generations, and I even liked Sonic Lost World. Sonic Generations took the series back to its roots, and Sonic Lost World had a GREAT idea, and I think SEGA should've built off of that idea. Then we got Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, and my hope was shattered. - DCfnaf

Stanley, is annoying he's the kind of person that you wanna feel bad for him but you can't because you wanna strangle him, now I'm a clutz, I accidentally break things, but I don't "ruin everything I touch" his voice his high pitched and his annoying crying goes to far, it's just one of those cheap look a likes, you know "Stanley gets strangled by the tattle tale strangler" uncreative/lengthy name, but still worth watching with season 10 being pretty good

I actually kind of like this episode.

68 Frozen Face-Off

The abominable snowman that was just a puppet was the worst thing to ever be put on television. SpongeBob used to be the greatest show on television, but over the last few years has gone from the top to the rock bottom of entertainment.

Awful! Not like the old spongebob shows at all. All lame jokes and unoriginal storyline. And when they threw in the giant claymation abominable snowman, it just got 5x worse. When it was revealed that all the snowman wanted were Patrick's jelly beans, I shut the T.V. off. I would rather listen to Justin Beiber than watch this episode again.

This was just another Post-Movie Spongebob special. Generic storyline and lame jokes, and a twist too stupid to remember.

(Seriously, why is there a what Boom joke? )

I liked this episode. - SuperNut98

69 Pineapple Fever

I actually liked the plot, even if the jokes weren't funny. I like the part where they mangle common games to the point that he makes his own game and they are asking questions about it. "Will there be any spelling in this game? " "No, no spelling." "Yes! " My favorite line.

Believe me, I think the writers could make a way better episode, but they decide to make it into a squidward torture porn. Also, the jokes they use are bad and they drag on for WAY too long. Additionaly, the writers think if they put squidward as the ass of their jokes, it automatically makes them funny. And to make sure of that, they make SpongeBob and patrick as intolerably dumb as possible. the plot sucked and its boring

If House Fancy gets so much hate for the toenail scene, than Pineapple Fever deserves more hate for the eyebrow scene.

The eyebrow scene made me cringe and oh god the "doing jigsaw puzzles playing tic-tac-toe drinking hot cocoa" line. I HATED THAT EVEN AS A KID. The fact Patrick can't play puzzles and the tornado appears just to torture Squidward. I'VE ALWAYS HATED THIS EPISODE. - Chikinan

70 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.

Another episode I hate Mr. Krabs in. Krabs has like a million customers per day. But when Plankton finally gets a customer, Krabs finds it necessary to take him out of business. Let the poor guy just have one customer! - DoroExploro13

71 Tentacle Vision

I truly hated this episode as a kid. It had horrible comedy, (a.K.A. nONE) was a really annoying episode, and spongebob and Patrick ruined everything. This could've been a good episode, but like most of the episodes on this list it failed horribly. You think squidward deserves something after having the worst neighbors in history of mankind, but no.

Worst episode ever. Squidward didn't deserve anything he got except for getting his own television show. I don't understand how it got to number fifty-one and not number one.

What a horrible episode, oh my god I almost ran out of the room

I liked this one! Zeus's intro was hilarious to me. Patrick making his mouth appear on T.V. though... oh lord I agree with the old lady. That's disgusting! - Chikinan

72 Restraining SpongeBob

The episode is weird and creepy. I mean, Patrick following squidward around. That's creepy and fried squidward? What the hell?

This episode is so... so bad and in my opinion had so much potential. I mean squidward FINALLY got the restraining order on sb and they ruined it with patrick... he should have gotten another restraining order on patprick. in my opinion I would rather give it to patrick. pat and mr krabs are both tied for my least favorite characters in MODERN SpongeBob. in old AMAZING SpongeBob (seasons 1-3, maybe even 4) patrick is my favorite character and at the moment, gary is mine. you guys should improve patrick OVERALL and get him back and get your act together so we can have more amazing modern episodes like sand castles in the sand, suction cup symphony, planktons pet, krabby kronicle, donut of shame, and battle of bikini bottom. writers go back to where you got your inspiration for these episodes and it wont be so bad anymore I beg you. especially you zeus cervas and casey alexander - islandersfan91

This episode is just bland, and is by far Patrick's worst appearance. I know Patrick is the dumb one, but here he pretty much has the brain of an infant. It seems like the writers ran out of ideas pretty quickly, so they just ended up having Patrick laugh uncontrollably at the end for literally no reason.

Even as a kid this one wasn't good. - Chikinan

73 The Krabby Kronicle

Honestly, this episode isn't really bad. Although SpongeBob is being abused and so are the others, Mr. Krabs gets what he deserves. The only part I hated was the ending, where Mr. krabs still wins

I actually enjoyed this episode because of the message it sends to viewers, but I also somewhat didn't enjoy it because Mr. Krabs still didn't learn his lesson in the end, but that also sent a good message to viewers because yes, trying to make an easy buck doesn't pay, but there are many ways people use to get around that, and this episode provided a good example. - Mcgillacuddy

This episode has problems. First of all, the. Plot was too predictable and WAY too mean spirited where Mr Krabs does get away with counterfeit, his greed is blatantly forcing the tension of the plot to drive everyone except for himself into a state of misery. I hated this

I actually liked this episode. The only bad thing it does is Mr.Krabs being a jerk to the entire city. At least he got punished for it.

74 Waiting

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.

This episode may be the most annoying I have seen along with "Yours Mine and Mine". It's just pointing out SpongeBob and Patrick's stupidity.

While it's far from the worst, this one has always been unpleasant to watch. It's basically 10 minutes(or however long the shorts were) of Spongebob being really...mean. Mean to everyone, in fact. It's not funny and it's honestly not fun to watch. - Garythesnail

75 The Googly Artiste

Of course, if Squidward was the one gluing googly eyes to rocks, he would be scorned and the hideous bikini bottom citizens would have probably formed an angry mob because they hate it. No humor in this episode, unless that idiotic starry night gag is their idea of funny.

In this episode they put Squidward at the ass of the joke real badly! So bad that I felt so bad for Squidward and the artist that approved the rock with eyes must be fired and retarded because that idea is as bland as plain bread.
1/10 annoying episode - DrMayonnaise

I want to beat up that dumbass critic for not choosing Squidward's art if I was him I would choose Venus de Squidward over Patrick's dumb rock with goodly eyes and SpongeBobs birdhouse. What I will do to the critic is that I will punch his face kick his nuts and then torture him repeatedly until he chooses Squidward's art.

Next thing you'll know, that critic will start calling Boku no Pico the best anime ever. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

76 The Slumber Party

I wanted to slap Pearl and jump all of her friends because they shoved Spongebob into a pizza box, dropped a piano on him, where going to pour boiling oil on him & let him fall into a root beer cellar. I believe it was fair for that one girl to break out in hives (because of the newsprint), and the rest of them to have zombie shock syndrome. They definitely didn't deserve an expensive party at the end of the episode, the really deserved a punch in the throat.

God this episode is just as bad as bubble buddy. it's so cruel - bolbi9

I think this one is funny

This needs to be higher! What teenager should be left alone for the whole night in their dads house? I don't care how 'mature' pearl & her friends r, she has NO RIGHT to throw her own father out of his own house for her stupid slumber party! HIS HOUSE HIS RULES! Don't like it u shallow b***h go try & make it on your own if 'your so mature' pearl! And then she punishes her father for what she herself got herself into! IF SHE JUST LET HER DAD STAY IN HIS OWN HOUSE, HE'D KNOW THAT THEY WERE DOING NOTHING WRONG AND THEY wouldn't HAVE THEIR PARTY RUINED! Stupid prissy bratty b***h. Mr. Krabs needs to send the bratty bossy priss somewhere we're she'd learn to respect him more. Of course Mr. Krabs is a cheepscape, but like I said it's his house & his money give over it u brat, pearl!

77 Keep Bikini Bottom Beautiful

Seriously I wanted to murder that stupid cop

I feel bad for Squidward because of that stupid dumb idiot cop that just give him tickets for no reason like when the cop put a ticket on Squidward's nose but the ticket fall by itself and the cop gave Squidward another ticket because of what LITTERING! If I were Squidward I would beat the livin crap at that cop!

If you a cop up, no matter how much the cop deserves it, you're probably going to get arrested. Then again, this is the Bikini Bottom law system... - Spongebobwebarebearsfan

I think the cop has issues...or at least the law

This episode is not funny at all ( Maybe in the beginning, but not at the end), Squidward gets all those tickets by that cop for littering, when he's not, and even at the end with Squidward getting 9 tickets the cop hasn't taken him to jail. Also Squilliam gets a ticket for his statue falling down. Basically the cop is giving people tickets for littering, when these people didn't litter, and the cop doesn't get punished.
This is a horrible episode and should be in the TOP 3!

Am I the only one who liked this episode? It wasn't one of the best but I found SpongeBob singing musical doodle all the time amusing for some reason.

This episode is all about one song that SpongeBob is obsessed.

The directors put no thought into the ideas. For example, the song is called MUSICAL DOODLE. You could have put a lot more time in it.
This is what Nickelodeon is now.

Don't like it but the musical doodle in catchy.

The end of this epsoides creppy where spongbob starts acting all creppy but I kind of like this one

Another episode with lots of humor, but terrible humor that you can't even tell is supposed to be funny!

Some of the worst usage of visual/slapstick humor I've ever seen.

Total ripoff of pressure

No this is good
