Worst SpongeBob SquarePants Season 5 Episodes

This is list of worst spongebob episodes in season 5.

The Top Ten

1 To Love a Patty

I HATE this episode! Not just one of the worst of season 5, it's one of the worst of all seasons (in my opinion). He killed scallops! What if one of them was junior! This episode commits character assassination! What happened to the old spongebob who was kind and caring and didn't murder innocent animals! The scallop killing scene is enough to secure this episode a place on my top 10 worst episodes even without the rest of this awful episode.

Oh and the rest of the episode is just creepy. Sure I don't think it's out of character for Spongebob to befriend inanimate objects, he's done that before in episodes like "I had an accident" but never before has he been sexually attracted to another person never mind a sandwich...it's just so messed up!

Episode is also gross, the closeups of that rotten patty I wish I could unsee

That he has a fetish for the patty is not what bothers me, it's the fact how it was executed, with the worst possible use of disgusting imagery and a horrible killing in the middle. And I am not talking about your typical gross out or toilet humor, this goes further, it celebrates the disgust in such a detail and level that you will wonder if they had some sort of hatred against the character Spongebob. I mean look at this on a more psychological or metaphorical way: he kills clams quite graphically but it is presented as a side gag (clams are birds in the Spongebob universe, he kills birds basically, and we all remember he once cared for one), then later on he is forced to eat not a rotten burger but one with maggots, hair and other truly disgusting stuff. To me this looks like someone intentionally wanted to make Spongebob look as hateworthy as possible just to take revenge to him in the most sadistic of ways. After all, the patty he is eating is supposed to be the rotting body of ...more - Martin_Canine

I don't care about the fact that he loved it, Heres why I hate it:
1. Ill never watch "Rock a Bye Bivalve" the same way again because of this.
2. The gross close ups, and everything that happened with the patty.
3. After all that, he EATS it. I'm gonna wait a few days until I eat another burger...

Patty. fetish.

2 Atlantis SquarePantis

I honestly don't think this special and it's songs aren't as bad as people make it out to be. My main problem with the special is the slow pacing which makes it very boring to sit through. The songs are used to pad out the 44 minute run time. I think the songs are bland and forgettable. The different art styles leave a lot to be desired as well because they're only up on screen for a minute or two. Nick wanted to make what was suppose to be an 11 minute episode into an hour special, which makes no sense! David Bowie was a wasted celebrity guest due to LRH and the rest of the Atlantians being very forgettable characters. The Patchy stuff is worse than the main plot due to annoying me more than the actual episode did due to the obnoxious tone and terrible special effects which weren't funny as they were intended to be. - Paaatttriiickkksttaarrr

Biggest disappointment in SpongeBob history. There are no attempts at jokes, the plot is either ripping offf Willy Wonka, or repeating the same crap over and over, and the songs are cringe-worthy. Not even the Patchy segments are good, which was what I liked best in earlier specials. Seriously though, what dumbass casts David Bowie, a professional singer, and he is quite literallythe only character who doesn't sing


#=part of a bad word

This should have been number 1. - DumbBoy

3 Fungus Among Us

This is the first and last episode in which I felt truly grossed-out throughout the entire episode. After I saw this, I reached my breaking point. I could barely even keep my lunch in my stomach. Warning, DO NOT watch this right before or after eating.

I hate to say this, but there's nothing even close to any sort of jokes being told. Even if you take the disgusting parts out of this episode, it is still nothing but boring and mean spirited.

I really don't see anything bad with this the fungus looks like algae and if anyone thinks this is gross, watch: the splinter, house fancy, pineapple fever and face freeze then tell me what you think is gross about this episode

No words can describe how nasty it is

4 A Flea In Her Dome

After watching Spongehenge, I was 99% sure that will be the worst episode of the season. After watching this episode, I told myself: "Boy was I wrong." This episode is not funny at all (the apple joke was not funny), it had a terrible ending and a terrible beginning, it was so gross I'm glad I haven't vomited. Warning: don't watch this episode right before or right after eating, I watched it right after lunch and almost vomited. (Although this episode is so terrible and gross you can almost vomit even if you don't watch this episode right before or after your meal). And yeah, this episode is A LOT grosser than Fungus Among Us and should be #1. My top 5 worst episodes of the season:
5. What Ever Happened to Spongebob
4. To Love a Patty
3. Fungus Among Us
2. Spongehenge
1. A Flea in her Dome (i hate Atlantis Squarepantis, but those 5 episodes we're worse)

A lot more gross than Fungus Among Us, when the fleas take over Sandy's house I want to smash the computer and pray to God I keep everything that I ate last 5 years in my body. Also, the apple joke is not funny, and the ending is stupid because EVERY BIKINI BOTTOM CITIZEN gets trapped in Sandy's treedome and CAN'T get out. This episode was bad from start to finish and put it at #1.

Come on! This one is A LOT worse than To Love a Patty and Atlantis Squarepantis. Fungus Among us and this one are horrible, I can't tell which is worse, some of them should be #1.

This one is ok in my opinion. I thought that were some funny scenes. Fungus Among Us is terrible though. - NostalgiaMonkey

5 Stanley S. SquarePants

This episode is really irritating.. Stanley is so annoying!

Whoops. This episode is my guilty pleasure. But I can see why people hate it

Go Spongebob go

This episode is really annoying. I never watch it when it comes on the T.V. Seriously? How can someone be that reckless!?!

6 SpongeHenge

This one is terrible. This is my 2nd least favorite of the season next to To Love a Patty ( GOD I HATE TO LOVE A PATTY ). This one is really eerie. It's a VERY creepy, eerie episode and actually just about as creepy as Squids Visit, To Love a Patty, Squid Baby, and Boating Buddies. In the ending scene with those aliens and those stone SpongeBobs and that closeup on one of their mouths in that laugh I was just like "what the heck did I just watch? " Its also kinda weird that no one really talks about this episode. This one doesn't even try to be funny, I-I

don't even see how. This one is really disturbing and creepy and it doesn't feel like it belongs in SpongeBob. Not to mention this one has SpongeBob as the torture victim and he's tortured in some really unfunny and kinda disturbing ways. That ending with the Krusty Krab in ruins is pretty creepy. By the way besides being a reference of Stonehenge and Planet of the Apes, is this trying to parody something that may ...more

If you've been living under a rock, this is my personal LEAST FAVORITE episode.

To give a quick recap, this episode is not funny AT ALL. It has a HORRIFYING ending, and the entire episode could be summed up from an episode to a movie that doesn't even exist.

I no longer think this is 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, that I'd maybe wake up and realize the show was no longer the same. That song will HAUNT MY NIGHTMARES. I pray to Neptune and Poseidon that I never have to see it again.

This episode takes all continuity in the entire series and just throws it out the window. It breaks every law of logic, physics, and...well, EVERYTHING! The plot is the most nonsensical thing of all time, it's probably the creepiest SpongeBob episode, and it just existing could cause a rift in time in the SpongeBob universe! This is my least favorite episode in the whole show.

The worst part was when the moon and sun had realistic faces - Pieclone

7 Whobob Whatpants?

For some reason, I like pretty much every episode on this list except this and Atlantis. And I didn't even mind those to be honest. What's the matter with me?

That close up is the most disturbing I have ever seen. I can't even imagine how many young viewers got nightmares from that!

I hate this more than atlantis squarepantis it is my least favorite season 5 episode.

Horrible pointless, mean spirited episode!

What? This One Is One Of The Best Season 5 Episodes - Yina

Okay whoever hates this episode must have obviously said Atlantis SquarePantis is in their Top 5 favorite for the season.

I like this one - Goatworlds

9 Boat Smarts

I actually liked it. It was funny. But didn't get the story. - TristGamer

I respect the opinion who love this episode. But you need to check it again. I'm not going to be kidding here. Why SpongeBob getting scott of free while he doing a bad thing. And why Squidward getting mauled and crashed while doing the right thing. Is this a good moral to teach?

Oh no! That shouldn't be the worst episode!

This episode was one of the best in my opinion and the best of all the 3-4 minute shorts - NostalgiaMonkey

10 Breath of Fresh Squidward

This episode puts SpongeBob through everything he does to Squidward, and I'm supposed to feel sorry only for ScumBob? No, that's not how morality works, writers. I was surprised the devils duo (Cervas and Alexander) weren't behind this mess.

The Contenders

11 To Save a Squirrel

I like this one (Please don't hurt me)

I actually really like this episode - NostalgiaMonkey

This one's actually pretty good - mtndewlord

12 Waiting

This SHORT is honestly one of the most infuriating things I have ever seen.

This episode has SpongeBob crying because he missed his birthday party five minutes off screen, and it has a joke about Patrick eating the cake.

But this episode has the fact that it just BARELY EVEN BOTHER WITH THE PLOT OR ANY SORT OF GAG! This episode is awful on so many levels and it's a SHORT! I never thought a SHORT episode could possibly make me so frustrated and angry, but it does!

You don't want to watch it! You never want to see this episode! It is tedious and boring and annoying and frustrating! But the best part of the episode is that Squidward appears in it, and nothing horrible happens to him. That's pretty bad.

The entirety of this episode could be set up as: "SpongeBob refuses to have a plot." He literally just stands there waiting for this toy, and anytime something looks like it's going to happen, like Patrick tries to start a plot, SpongeBob absolutely denies ...more

Ten minutes of BORING! Ugh, I could walk around in circles for ten minutes and feel less bored.

This is the worst season 5 short.

This episode was meh in my opinion - NostalgiaMonkey

13 The Battle of Bikini Bottom

Why is this number 10? , it's one of the best episodes in the season! - JThrill

This one was epic

Run Mr. Krabs, Patrick is digging for gold!

This one was awesome. They handled gross-out humor correctly. - Powerfulgirl10

14 Night Light

I like this one. It's sorta dumb, but pretty neat. It's interesting and has cool visuals. - mtndewlord

One of my favorites of season 5. Don't know why it's this high, - Alien51

Am I the only person that likes this?

This one came out on my 4th bday - Tyler730

15 Whatever Happened to Spongebob

This episode is boring, annoying, and has as many flaws and plot holes, (maybe even more), than SpongeBob You're Fired! Although To Love a Patty is a close 2nd, this episode is seriously bad.

Delete this episode off the list! Whatever Happened to SpongeBob is Whobob Whatpants and that is on here.

This episode is on twice. anyways it's meh in my opinion though - NostalgiaMonkey

16 Picture Day

This is the worst spongebob episode ever

This episode makes me question why Patrick is even in the series. Not to mention most of the episode is just SpongeBob repeatedly getting ready for picture day and than getting his clothes dirty. Here's how the episode starts. SpongeBob wakes up in the morning and tells Gary that it's picture day. That's a nice way to start the beginning, but than the episode goes downhill. SpongeBob gets ready for picture day. Now that's Not I bad but here's when the episode gets bad. (by the way Since when did SpongeBob have hair? ) than he goes outside and he gets some green slime on his clothes (gross) than he goes back in his house and than cleans his clothes again than he tells Gary that he is ready again than Gary says meow and SpongeBob tells Gary that he will be careful not to get dirty. Than SpongeBob goes outside and tells squidward good morning and tells squidward that it's picture day than some claw for no reason grabs SpongeBob and puts SpongeBob in the garbage truck than puts SpongeBob ...more

17 Banned In Bikini Bottom

I actually liked this one. The characters were mostly likeable. - Turkeyasylum

A stupid modern SpongeBob episode: idiotic plot, unlikeable characters (Ms. Grisslepuss and her police chief husband), the regular SpongeBob characters more flanderized and dumb than usual, and an unbelievably horrible song. Plus, the ending couldn't be much more insulting if they tried.

19 Blackjack

No this is probably one of the best - NostalgiaMonkey

20 The Inmates of Summer

What this is great, very great

21 Donut of Shame

This episode is good, really!

This episode has Patrick in-character for once. - Garythesnail

Good episode actually. - Powerfulgirl10

22 The Original Fry Cook

This episode... Is actually pretty good. Screw the person who put this on the list.

This one came out on my 4th bday - Tyler730

Jim sucks. Also, Mr. Krabs was a jerk. - RalphBob

23 Blackened Sponge

It sucks

24 Pest of the West

This episode was good. Just because it has the same sort of premise as 'Dunces and Dragons', that doesn't make it a ripoff. That's like saying that 'Dunces and Dragons' is a ripoff of 'UGH', which happens to be my least favorite in the Time Period Trio. Yeah, I gave it a name. None of these three episodes are ripoffs of each other. It's a sort of miniseries, like Family Guy's 'Road To...' Series or The Simpsons 'Treehouse of Horror' Series. And people give 'Pest of the West' crap (Mainly PieGuyRulz, not calling him out, slagging him off or insulting him by the way, I think he is a good Youtuber and Reviewer) just because it isn't as good, or doesn't reach the quality of 'Dunces and Dragons'. It doesn't have to. There is nothing really wrong with the episode and I think it doesn't deserve all the crap it gets.

Not bad, well thought and is funny where he gets ice cream at a funeral parlor.

I love this episode, I think I might like it even better than Friend or Foe - NostalgiaMonkey

Only bad thing is that Dead Eye isn’t intimidating at all. He only had a whip and was 2 inches tall. Maybe give him a gang, have his eye be HUGE (like 6 feet tall,) or this (which I consider the best option,) In the beginning, Spongebob/Spongebuck gives Western Mr. Krabs at the Krusty Kantina some of his chile to try which is spicy. Chile is the Western Krabby Patty in Spongebob. Maybe make PLANKTON serve his OWN kind of Chile called “Chum Chillie.” That would’ve been funny. And instead of that dumb old whip as a weapon, have the Chum Chile as his weapon. Also, that standoff could’ve been a LOT better if instead of Spongebuck beating Dead Eye by accidentally stepping on him, Spongebuck and Dead Eye have a war of the Chile by flinging it it. Since in old Western Movies there are guns, the Chile could’ve been a SUBSTITUTE for the guns. Other than that, a classic episode in my opinion. Highly reccomend watching it. Thanks for reading!

25 Good Ol' Whatshisname

My god. This is a terrible episode with a bad plot and two underwhelming plots. - TomKellyCartooning

26 Slimy Dancing

What?!? This is one of my FAVOURITES!

27 Rise and Shine

I like this episode because it has a nice sound of alarm clocks ( sarcasm )

28 A pal for Gary

This was season 7. Please take it off the list

This was from season 7 but it is the 4th worst episode. First 3 are Smoothe Jazz At Bikini Bottom One Coarse Meal and Shuffleboarding.

29 Money Talks

But I love this episode

30 The Two Faces of Squidward

Squidward was not handsome, he was really ugly, plus the episode just fails in anything. Most season 5 episodes are good, but this one was bad. - Goatworlds

31 Band Geeks

People really need to look up these reasons these episodes were from. - Powerfulgirl10

Wait, ok really, who made this list? THIS IS FROM SEASON 2 PEOPLE AND ONE OF THE BEST SpongeBob EPISODES.

32 Krabs a la Mode

I hate you I love this episode

I love this episode
