Worst Spongebob Squarepants Episodes


The Contenders: Page 5

81 House Sittin' for Sandy

This episode has the Biggest screw up in spongebob history, throughout the episode up until Patrick shows up, the writers FORGOT TO GIVE SPONGEBOB A WATER HELMET! It was never addressed, it had no effect on SpongeBob, then when Patrick came in and the writers realize "oh crap! We forgot to animate a water helmet on spongebob", They just lazily try to cover it up by suddenly having Spongebob start suffocating out of nowhere

Meh, it's pretty boring. It's basically a clone of Wormy. The episode just moves WAY to slowly. It's as if the writers just slowed everything down so they could fit 11 minutes into the episodes. Overall, it's just not enjoyable.

Filler, SpongeBob crying, patricks a prick, kick in the face ending = this episode

I low key wanted to kick Patrick in the head because he deliberately did what Spongebob told him not to.

82 Naughty Nautical Neighbors

What the hell? This is one of my favorites!

This episode is one of the best. The person who put this here probably likes episodes like A Pal for Gary and One Coarse Meal. - Spongebob-129

Man this is one of the best ever in my opinion! Squidward throwing his voice always made me laugh!

84 Overbooked

Am I the only one who disliked this episode? I am sorry, but I do not like the way SpongeBob was treated in this episode. SpongeBob had to go to 3 places at once, and Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and Patrick did not understand SpongeBob when he had to go to another place. I am okay with you liking this episode, but if you think that the people who didn't like it should commit suicide, then you should commit suicide yourself. - anonygirl

This episode is great

I liked overbooked. I think it teaches a good lesson to kids, and it's kind of funny.

85 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

86 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

87 License to Milkshake

Okay, at first back when it aired I seemed to almost like the episode. But then I dissected it and I hate it. At the beginning of the episode, SpongeBob makes an ordinary milkshake just like usual.. all of a sudden it's frozen solid.

First there's a jellyfishing license, NOW there's a milkshake license.

Then just because he messed up one milkshake he has to go to this 'academy'. In the beginning of the episode we saw him dealing with the shakes in a blender. All of a sudden we get this crazy, illogically made up machine that SpongeBob would probably never put his hands on anywhere else because Mr. Krabs is so cheap. The only thing I found actually funny was when this 'Captain Frostymug' (fabulous name right? ) told SpongeBob there was no licenses left and he asked why, SpongeBob said 'Um.. the printer ran out of ink? '

Soon enough after four hours (looks like four years) of 'training', SpongeBob got no license. Wa. But fabulous Captain Frostymug shoved his hand in ...more

A true testament to how desperate the writers are now that they've run out of ideas. The old episodes are so much better. - Shake_n_Bake13

This is the worst 2013 episode along with little yellow book SpongeBob forgets how to make a milkshake and how can you make a burger with ice cream and why do you need a license to make a milkshake that's just insane.

The advertisement! They used Kelis's Milkshake song! Ewww! Do you even know what it really means? - Chikinan

88 Boat Smarts

Makes SpongeBob look like a jerk

Here's the thing: SpongeBob is supposed to be funny and childish, but this episode kinda ruined it for him. You have to watch it to understand.

They ruined SpongeBob in this episode and made him look SO STUPID!

It may have ruined SpongeBob, but other than that, it was kind of a good episode.

89 Ditchin'

It's basically a crappier version of Hooky if you think about it.

Uh... Both are great episodes! Season 6 usually has MUCH MUCH worse! - Goatworlds

This One Was Pretty Good Especially For Season 6. It Doesn't Should Be Higher Then Summer Job, Slide Whistle Stooges, Greasy Buffoons, Smoothe Jazz At Bikini Bottom, Squid Wood And Many Others... - Ardan

I really like this episode, and will never get the hate.

Even though I dislike this episode, I actually find it to be pretty good for a season 6 episode. - anonygirl

90 Spongebob's Last Stand

What! This is one of my best episode. It really shows care for our world and it's a great earth day special. But the part where those fishes boo at SpongeBob and patrick about saving jelly fish fields makes me feel to kill them. Whoever put the "get ready to lose 22 minutes of your life " well I'm not getting mad at him. It is even currently one of the best episodes of season 7. The episode is also awesome it is not just like a pal for gary, stuck in the wringer, and several other bad season 7 episodes, this one is not preety bad, you should watch it. Unlike a pal for gary, boat smarts, and pet sitter pat those 3 episodes are totally bad. Band geeks, this one, and other good episodes should be removed from this list. Here is my worst episode list: 10 patrick man! (Stupid, mean, and nothing funny about false arrest) 9 squid baby 8 something smells (annoying, stupid ending ) 7 hooky (very mean ending) 6 I'm with stupid (extremeley mean ending) 5 the clash of the tritons 4 krusty ...more

I liked the plot and the song, and it was good for an Earth Day special.

Why is this here? The theme is to take care of our planet. It is a really good episode for Earth Day. - IcetailofWishClan

Plankton took it too far in this episode, but it's not a big deal comparing to what Krabs has done in ONE COARSE MEAL. - BlueSheepYT

91 Growth Spout

This one is a mediocre episode with a few funny moments.

Can I call this episode under-hated? There were some good episodes up a lot higher than this! It wasn't clever or funny. I found Pearl's moaning annoying and uncomfortable.
I would call this my least favorite Spongehenge was haunting but I later liked it for that. It was a twist in that it was dark and intentionally not humorous. Growth Spout is a filler episode without anything memorable about it.
I don't get the hate for ones like Gone, and episodes like Bubble Buddy and House Fancy don't even belong here!

Pearl gets fat. Great episode (sarcasm) - Goatworlds

92 Life of Crime

Why the hell is this here?

I love that episode. The line said by Patrick, "You took my only food, now I'm gonna starve! " was funny because it showed his obese stomach.

This episode should be number 20 on greatest SpongeBob episode

I love this one but Patrick was an idiot in this epsoide even more dumb than normal - Spongebobipod

93 Krabby Land

It's worth the wait because The Camping Episode is after this one

The best episode in the top 100. Krabby Land is hilariously. It is top 10 best material. Everything about this episode is perfect. Krabs was cheap and he was punished

I love this episode references to McDonalds, Disneyland, and Chuck E. Cheeses. I rate this episode a 5/5 because this episode rocks

Only bad thing about this episode is Both Mr. Krabs and the kids. Mr. Krabs is being cheap as usual and he's trying to scam the kids out of their money with a cheap amusement park. As for the kids, I hate them in this episode because when Spongebob wanted to entertain them, all they did was boo and be mean and cruel to him.

94 Mall Girl Pearl

I actually liked this episode. Pearl was not a brat in this episode unlike many other episodes. Actually, SpongeBob made a cameo at the end of the episode, so technically he does appear. - anonygirl

Did this even come out yet?

Spongebob doesen't appear, enough said

95 Tea at the Treedome

Come on! At least give the episode credit, it's the third episode. Anyway, the episode was definitely far from the worst.

Stop Putting the old episodes on the list. They were hilarious.

This is a great episode! - Spongebob-129

Who the hell put this on the list?! It's a classic! Take it off NOW! - Tyler730

96 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

98 Ugh

It was different, I didn't know why it was in the top 100 worst episodes of SpongeBob

This episode was really good the caveman gags are actually funny I think ugh is one of the best episodes - Mswalgren

99 You Don't Know Sponge

Patrick is much stupider in this episode

I love this one because Patrick thinks SpongeBob is a girl and triangle.

I hate this Patrick thinks SpongeBob is a girl and a triangle!

This is Patrick at his absolute worst! I think it should be higher on this list

100 A Friendly Game

Patrick is a Jerk - ChiefMudkip
