Worst Spongebob Squarepants Episodes


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Ripped Pants

Why is this on the list?!? This episode was hilarious!

This is one of my favorite episodes I love the song

This is not a very good episode for three reasons:
1. SpongeBob was annoying the daylights out of everyone else with one joke!
2. The episode only has ONE JOKE! The ripping of someone's pants is like a vine, It's funny once, but then it gets boring and repetitive.
3. SpongeBob, after realizing that he's turned into the season 6 version of himself, sings a song to try and win his friends back. AND. IT. WORKS. How? Lazy writing of course!

Bonus Reason!
4. This episode has the main character, the role model, the person we are to identify with, tormenting pretty much everyone on the beach for 11 minutes. Yay! - CartreW

What is Ripped Pants doing here? I actually liked that episode. - SamHalls2015

102 Sun Bleached

This episode is awful! Why isn't this higher up the list, like at least top 25. I think this episode has a really bad message. This like many of the newer episodes has a mean spirited feel. Basically SpongeBob and Patrick are not allowed to go to some stupid vanity show party because they aren't tanned enough, after being made fun of for wearing sunscreen they go on a sunbed which results in SpongeBob being sun bleached. At first he is made fun of for this but then the host of the party decides that actually sunbleached is " the ultimate tan" and then he is more or less worshipped for frying himself on a sunbed... What kind of message is that! I wouldn't have minded this episode half as much if the people who had made fun of SpongeBob had been punished in some way or at least been made to feel ashamed for their mean and superficial behaviour BUT NO The moral of the story is basically tan until you get sunbleached... And probably skin cancer too.

Not the worst, but definitely not the greatest. I find it pretty watchable, but it really crossed the line with throwing that kid in a dumpster.

I liked this episode a bit. Not the best but not the worst. My favorite part was the old man saying radical. I didn't get it but that's what's funny about SpongeBob

I hate this episode because it is judgemental against people with fair skin. It's not my fault that I have lots of Irish in my blood and can't tan. Even if I spend a lot of time in the sun, but I burn instead of tan. You cannot control your skin color. - anonygirl

103 Whale of a Birthday

The one episode where I wanted to Eat Mr. Krabs up and Salute spongebob for saving this episode. Why? Well I will tell you. First of all Mr. Krabs once again becomes A complete Cheapsake jerk to Pearl because Her birthday partys are ruined because of Mr. Krabs cheapsake. Int his episode. I FELL SORRY FOR PEARL! Her birthday partys are ruined because her dad is a liar, A jerk, A cheapsake, A criminal, AND A COMPLETE IDIOT! ANd one her 16th birthday HE DID IT AGAIN! Even though that Mr. Krabs PROMISE Pearl for a great and non cheap party. Well at least spongebob Saved Pearls party By Giving her a lot of presents and the Real Boys who cry. That's why I like spongebob on this episode and hate Mr. CHEAPSAKE on here. Oh yea and when Spongebob spent All of Mr. Krabs money. HE WANTED TO PUNCH SPONGEBOB! YOUR CHEAP ENOUGH! PLEASE TAKE A BREAK FROM GOING TO YOUR MONEY AND CHEAP PLACE! And that's why this episode really ticks me off just like One course meal and growth Spurt. BECAUSE OF MR. ...more

Mr. Krabs is a cheapskate jerk who can't even spend at least one cent for her birthday. It's her 16th birthday! That day is very important to girls and you come up with cheap, stupid ideas to celebrate her birthday. You have a lot of money so why can't you buy her a real cake and real decorations? Everyone does that! SpongeBob is better enough to be her father.

I loved this episode as a kid! I remember singing the Boys Who Cry song when I was 4 and recording it. But I always hated the cheap birthday scene, even when I was little! They gave her cardboard cake, dishwater punch, a Krabby Patty statue, stale popcorn, and Squidward doing a lousy cover of Boys Who Cry's "4-Ply". Pearl cried! I was angry! I used to always rewrite this episode when I was 7 so Pearl got everything she wanted the first time around, not when SpongeBob comes in. I thanked SpongeBob, but I just wanted the party to be good in the first place! Why does Squidward like Boys Who Cry? He should like classical music. And he twerked like Miley Cyrus! If I was Pearl I'd detonate everything with a sonic bomb! - Chikinan

This episode shows what a terrible cheapskate Mr. Krabs is! HE DOESN'T EVEN BOTHER TO SPEND ONE LOUSY, STINKING PENNY TO PLAN THE PERFECT BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR HIS OWN DAUGHTER! I can see why many people hate Mr. Krabs because of this. Mr. Krabs sucks at planning parties! Stale popcorn, dishwater punch, a statue made of raw krabby patties, CAKE MADE OUT OF CARDBOARD! COME ON! Pinkie Pie can throw a much better birthday party than that cheapskated idiot because she loves parties and knows how to plan the perfect ones! Birthday parties are Pinkie's thing, not Mr. Krabs!

104 Party Pooper Pants

Now who could have put this episode on the list?

I think this episode was hilarious, especially the scene where Patrick was dancing like an imbecile - Mcgillacuddy

By far the worst pre-movie episode.

I'm With Stupid and The Chaperone were worse. But yes it's not good at all. - Goatworlds

Mediocre - Goatworlds

105 Rule of Dumb

For me, this is just one of those episodes where Patrick is just a dumbass and gets away with it. Nothing funny, unlike its teamed-episode. The one with the kelp drinks and Mr. Krabs and Plankton have to work together. But this, Yours Mine and Mine, and Main Drain, Patrick is just down right a douche.

I never liked this episode, even as a child. The episode made me want to take Patrick's head, and bang a million nails into it. Anyone know why Patrick is my least favorite character yet? - DCfnaf

I like when Squidward goes Trotsky

I absolutely HATED Patrick in this, I'm With Stupid, and Driven to Tears - Tyler730

106 SpongeBob SquarePants vs. The Big One

When I was little I LOVED spongebob. It used to be the greatest show on earth, but then it went from clever to dumb. I chose this one because the only ones I've seen on here are this, Truth or Square, and Karate Island. This is the worst.

I don't understand why everyone kept saying huh and acting dingy!

I like this, but can see why people hate it. This episode implies that Squidward never met Sandy and this episode wasted Johnny Depp.

A good concept. I don't get why this episode is atrocity on the scorecard.

Trash plain and simple everyone

108 Imitation Krabs

I love this! I enjoyed when Plankton had to do everything to get the Krabby Patty formula, and in the end failed because his imitation was destructed with a coin (was that really necessary, Plankton? ) Mr. Krabs almost getting eaten made me laugh the first few couple of times. And of course, typical Mr. Krabs to go after money. I liked the beginning too! When a customer got his fake head removed by SpongeBob who thought was Plankton, after getting tricked about winning a million dollars ahaha. And that funny part: "Plankton! " "Krabs! " "Plankton! " "Krabs! "..."SpongeBob." I sooo enjoyed this episode. That 'answer correctly or get hit by tartar sauce' scene made me anxious as heck.

WHAT?! This episode is hilarious!

What? This is one of my favorite episode!

I actually liked this episode. The only problem with this episode was that SpongeBob tortured Mr. Krabs. - anonygirl

109 Nature Pants

This drives me crazy. How the heck this isn't #1? The plot is weak and pathetic, there is no good jokes here, Patrick is a bigger bastard than in The Card, Stuck In The Wringer etc. Not to mention the whole thing is boring and mean spirited, unwatchable, and worse than I expected. When I watched this one, I literally wanted to smash the computer with a hammer and throw the pieces through the window waiting for them to get picked up by junk removal. That's how bad it is. I respect everyone's opinions, but I just CAN'T UNDERSTAND how someone can like this episode. I hope I'll never have to see this piece of damn crap again.

How can the worst Spongebob episode be on 114? Someone explain. This episode is way worse than any abomination that the new writers gave to us, and feels like a season 6 or 7 episode. If I didn't knew this is season 1, I would have mistaken it for a season 6 episode and call it the worst season 6 episode. This episode shows that even the best cartoons aren't perfect every time.

Why is This episode on the List?!? This episode doesn't belong on the List.

Should be #1!

110 Welcome to the Bikini Bottom Triangle

One of the worst episodes. No sense
In my opinion since Season 7 the episodes aren't good as before.

One of the only new episodes that is actually good. "TNOP GRANDPA"

Who the hell put this episode in the ever loving holy in this list this is one of my best episodes almost 95 percent of all season 6 to 9 episodes are bad but this episode along with trench billies slide whistle stooges back to the past curse of the hex krusty dogs wreck of mauna loa love that squid enchanted tiki dreams mooncation a squrepants family vacation oral report squidward school for grownups frozen face off truth or square and face freeze are the only new good episodes of the series if you want to see a bad one wath choir boys patrick man and a pal for gary believe me I woul stick my lungs and smash it over a flaming road that does it if I see any bad episodes

111 The Main Drain

I hate this episode! The plot is boring, the jokes are lame, and when Mr Krabs and Plankton tell Spongebob and Patrick that they pulled the plug, that just makes the plot way more confusing. But what makes this episode worst is the ending, when it was just a story that spongebob was telling Patrick

Second worst ending in all of SpongeBob, second only to "Stuck in the Wringer".

Are you people idiots? This episode was epic!

Oh, the plot holes!

112 InSPONGEiac

I can't stand this episode! It puts Mr. Krabs at his most greedy, selfish state in the entire series. First, he complains about SpongeBob putting too much mustard on a patty, oh and by too much, I mean one more percent. Then, he says he will be bankrupt in 400 years. Two problems with this. One, how the heck does one more percent of mustard on a patty make a person ever bankrupt. Two, probably, and HOPEFULLY, he will die before this ever happens. Next, he claims SpongeBob as an insomniac because he missed two minutes of sleep. To be considered an insomniac, I'm pretty sure you need to miss hours of sleep, not two minutes. So he forces him to go home and get sleep. Mr. Krabs isn't the only problem, though. The writers also decided to make it impossible for SpongeBob to go to sleep. I mean, he has already been harassed by Mr. Krabs. Now this! So he goes to Patrick's house to see if he can help with his issue. Do you think Patrick is gonna help SpongeBob with his problem? No! He thought ...more

Do you REALLY think Patrick would be able to put SpongeBob to sleep?! Me neither! He's a total prick in New SpongeBob!

Okay. This episode is a rip off of seahorse seashell party from family guy. And it has contrived pacing, slow plot, and bizarre visuals. And Patrick in this episode is frustrating. - Antwon

The title card shocked me when I first saw it but I got used to it. The hallucination scene also creeped me out but now I love it because I love surreality. - Chikinan

113 Pickles

This DOES NOT belong here.

This episode is good actually. it does not belong here

This is not a bad episode

Only thing I hate about it is when Bubblebass insults Spongebob and pushes Squidward.

114 The Fishbowl

Patrick was a huge jerk in this episode, but at least unlike in episodes like Yours, Mine, and Mine, he actually REGRETTED AND APOLOGIZED for his mistakes.

Why recycle plots? And of all episodes to recycle, WHY YOURS, MINE, and MINE? This is another PatPrick episode, and he's honestly just as much of a jerk as he was in "Yours, Mine, and Mine" - DCfnaf

This episode is good and funny
I give 7/10

My top 10 worst:
10: Chocolate with Nuts (overrated, in my opinion)
9: Out of the Picture (rip-off of one of the classic episodes)
8: Are you Happy Now?
7: One Coarse Meal
6: Bubble Troubles
5: Yours, Mine and Mine
4: Choir Boys
3: Stuck in the Wringer
2: A Pal for Gary
1: The Fish Bowl

Should be #1.

115 Sanctuary! Sanctuary!

That owner of the "snail sanctuary"(the fish) probably wanted some escargot.

This episode is creepy and disturbing - YoshiApple

It's so disterbing when spongebob became a snail lady

116 Sponge-cano

I do not know why no one talks about this episode this episode is horrible and this is one of those episode where no one in bikini bottom likes squidward and also this episode has that volcano sacrifice cliche that in my opinion I hate and at the beginning of the episode SpongeBob sings a horrible song and everyone in this episode almost killed squidward but thankfully SpongeBob saved him but still I think this episode should be talked about more because this episode is horrible

It's a boring plot, and "Attitude of Gratitude" is idiotic.

"Hey how do you sacrifice to a Volcano? " "You throw Squidward's house into it."

117 Goo Goo Gas

This is one of the best post-movie episodes and therefore does not belong here. It is my favorite season 5 episode.

Now this is stupid

Man Krabs looks adorable but squidward looks like a abomination

Take it off. - Goatworlds

118 It's a SpongeBob Christmas!

Christmas episodes are great. Christmas who is a beautiful masterpiece of humour and great songs. This one is really good too. It's so happy, cleverly animated, and just good

This is the stop-motion one

I actually like this one.

Why is this so low? This episode is terrible. Santa Claus is an ugly pig, [literally]. And the animation is like that Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer movie from 1964. No offense, I like that film a lot, but it's just not spongebob to me. The GOOD christmas episode is "Christmas who? ".

119 Lost In Bikini Bottom

Whose. We should wait for a while before deciding if this episode is extremely bad.

This episode showed SpongeBobs ignorance get him in trouble, and he ends up making up for it. Squidward was kind of being unlikable and that explains the ending. I don't hate this episode. Still, it was KIND of boring. But I don't see any problems here.

This episode is okay. I really like the ending!

This episode was boring, but not really bad. - SuperNut98

120 Drive-Thru

I thought Krabs had a drive-thru in an older episode, which is a GOOD DRIVE-THRU. Honestly, he ain't cheap

This is another one of those newer episodes that have no humor. And if there is, I didn't notice. It's a good episode concept, but they should of made it better than this.

This episode proves Mr. Krabs is a dumbass cheapskate. SpongeBob clearly had the perfect drive thru equipment and probably paid for it with his own money. But nope! Mr. Krabs thinks a soup can and a paper menu is better just because it's "free". Also, I wanted to beat the crap out of Pearl and her bitchy friends when they tortured Squidward over the can. At least Mr. Krabs had a bad ending at the end when his restaurant was destroyed.
