Worst SpongeBob SquarePants Season 7 Episodes

Season 7 is my least favourite season of Spongebob.

The Top Ten

1 A Pal for Gary

This is my least favorite S7 episode and one of my least favorite SB episodes of all time (nothing can beat Nature Pants however). This episode is split in two parts. The first part of the episode is Spongebob being worried and sad because Gary is alone at home all the time he is at work, and that part is kinda boring. However, it's nowhere near as bad as the second part. In the second part, Spongebob STEALS a new PAL FOR GARY so Gary doesn't have to be alone at home when Spongebob is at work. But the worst part is, when Spongebob gets to the store, the salesman warns him that the pet he bought is nice only when it isn't around other animals, and when it's around other animals, it tries to kill them. However, Spongebob doesn't listen, and STEALS the pet. That's right, he doesn't pay, he STEALS the pet. The very moment Spongebob comes home with the pet he names Puffy Fluffy, that monster attacks Gary, and Spongebob constantly blames Gary for everything Puffy Fluffy done. And when Gary ...more

Worst episode in the series, and it always will be. Yep, I said it; and I said it with confidence. SpongeBob is so stupidly ignorant and his ungrateful rant after Gary SAVES HIS LIFE made me want to see Gary leave Spongebob, and this time for good. Why is this worse than OCM, you ask? Well, it's because at least OCM had a heartwarming moment where SpongeBob angrily confronted Mr. Krabs, went to talk Plankton out of suicide, and allowed him to get his revenge, as short-lived as it was. I'm not saying it was good by any means (far from it, in fact), but at least SpongeBob was himself; a nice guy who loves everyone equally. But in A Pal for Gary, SpongeBob isn't even remotely like himself, being even more of a jerk than Squidward, and without a reasonable justification!

I think I don't have to say anything about this episode, it speaks for itself in a horrible way.

At one part of the episode, SpongeBob worried about Gary being alone, but as the episode goes on, he only cares for his new pet Puffy Fluffy which tore down SpongeBob's house and blames Gary for it. That's correct, he blamed the one thing that he worried about the most in the beginning of the episode. This episode is worse than any T.V. episode I have ever seen (unless you count all of that horrendous Here Comes Honey Boo Boo). - ReakMayhem

2 One Coarse Meal

I never want to watch this episode again. It makes Pearl seem evil. And it make plankton seem like a sad, poor and frightened guy. PLANKTON TRIES TO COMMIT SUICIDE. Why must this happen? At the end he lays down in the middle of the road and waits for a car to come a CRUSH him. Pearl is the other bad thing about this episode. In season 2, 3, 5 and 6 she seemed fine with plankton. But in this episode she just wants to kill him and not do anything else. She even tries to get a plan to kill plankton. Plankton is so scared he has a nightmare about pearl chasing him and trying to kill him. So when he wakes up, he can't take it and he tries to commit suicide. WORST EPISODE OF SPONGEBOB EVER. POSSIBLY EVEN WORST EPISODE OF ANY CARTOON EVER.

Unpopular opinion: This is worse than A Pal for Gary. At least that episode could have been saved if the ending was better, this was doomed from the beginning.

I could rip into almost every episode on this list, but this is hands down the worst of them all. The plot is mean-spirited. Basically, Krabs drives Plankton to suicide. Because when you think of a kids show, you think of this, right? On top of that, Krabs gets almost no comeuppance for his actions, and Plankton is framed as a villain. SpongeBob helps Krabs in his plot to kill off Plankton. Krabs also knows that Plankton is so depressed he is committing suicide, and he laughs about it. This episode makes Friend Or Foe hard to watch. This episode basically implies that it's Ok to make someone suicidal if you dislike them.


I want to murder both Plankton and Krabs.

3 Stuck in the Wringer Stuck in the Wringer

Oh dear...where do I begin. It was absolutely horrible to watch a bright, cheerful optimistic character like spongebob spiral into depression, it just felt so wrong! This episode is a classic example of the change in tone the show has undergone. Spongebob used to make me laugh and feel happy but newer episodes like this just depress me! This episode is just so mean spirited, what the hell is wrong with those townspeople! Spongebob was finally calling Patrick out on his idiotic behaviour and they turn him into the bad guy! It's a close call between this one, a pal for Gary and one coarse meal but this one narrowly wins for this season because it combines so many things I hate about new episodes, excessive torture of a character, Patrick's UTTER stupidity, the town fish being JERKS for no reason and absolutely no funny jokes whatsoever and that ending... I have no words. "I guess crying does solve your problems"... Ugh! Rant over!

"I guess crying solves your problems after all." whoever written this episode and teaches kids to cry to solve problems should be fired.

I just hate Patrick in this episode. - 201002579

I want to kill those townspeople.

4 Yours, Mine and Mine

I wanted to punch Patrick in this one lol

I can't watch this episode without clenching my teeth at the way Patrick treats SpongeBob. I had to turn it off because it was so utterly annoying. Why are the plots of SpongeBob going down? I know that SpongeBob and Patrick are childish but they never got to the point of not being able to share!

I will never know why the writers thought it was a good idea to show patrick being greedy and selfish. How in any way is this funny charming or clever or anything but cruel, stupid and disgusting? - hurjelert

I don't think this episode is SUPPOSED to be funny. It's probably an educated episode to encourage 4 or 5 year-olds what NOT to do. But that probably didn't work.

This is why Patrick is my least favorite character in the modern seasons - Mswalgren

5 Someone's in the Kitchen with Sandy

In my opinion,Tentacle Vision isn't too bad. It did have some good jokes like "This is Disgusting".
I have a question:How is ruining a T.V. show WORSE than an episode about arresting someone for something they didn't even do? This is worse than Rodeo Daze and should be in Top 5. - Hellohi

Worst part: Sandy getting arrested for nudity, when Plankton was in the nude and in the same room. - CardboardBox

Sandy doesn't deserve to go to jail. One of those times where I want to stab the cops.

This is bad especially the ending and when the citizens are being mean to Sandy it should stay in its spot but big sister Sam for me is worse

6 Rodeo Daze

Sandy wasn't even in trouble. SpongeBob is the problem. He only got scared just because of rodeo clowns. He even kidnapped the whole town just because of his stupidity.

Finally someone agrees with me about this crappy crappy episode! - Animeotaku23

I liked this when I was younger, when I rewatched it, I didn't like it anymore. - Datguyisweird666

What's Point Of This Episode? - Ardan

7 Tentacle-Vision

I honestly thought squidward chat could've been a lot more interesting show than squidward's house party.

This was SOOO funny the first time I watched it. But then, I hated it. Hearing Fab N' Fancy has been cancelled because a teenager's mom gave him a T.V. Show for his birthday.

Zeus the Guitar Lord. ZEUS! Coincidence?

Out of then eleven season premiers from SpongeBob, this one is the worst. - SamHalls2015

8 A Day Without Tears

So so so very anoing

9 Big Sister Sam

Sam destroys everyone's house, even SpongeBob's who didn't do anything that is the plot. Hm

In my opinion.. This is the only bad episode exsept for the fact that spongebob and squidward sorta work together a bit.

10 Greasy Buffoons

Continuity error:Spongebob is seen DRIVING in this episode.Its like the new writers forgot that Spongebob doesn't even know the first thing about a boat. - Hellohi

This episode is just gross

The Contenders

11 That Sinking Feeling

The reason why this needs to be much higher on the list is because from start to finish, I was annoyed. SpongeBob and Patrick are nothing more than giggling break-dead annoyances. I'm not talking about how they treat Squidward. I'm talking about how they treat me, "the audience member." There is so much of that mindless giggling that it drives me up a tree! There is not an ounce of charm in SpongeBob and Patrick's childish actions! They are idiots, who don't even think to go around Squidward's border in the back! SpongeBob's voice has that obnoxious tone to it that he sometimes gets, "when acting really stupid! " Every single scene and joke goes on for way longer than it needs to, like Patrick figuring out which yard to go to, the extending digging sequences, and Squidward looking for SpongeBob and Patrick when we know they're underground! Even the background music annoys me with how frequent it is in this episode, and on top of all of that, the episode has no ...more

This episode is PieGuyRulz's worst Season 7 episode.

Deserves to be higher. Opinions are opinions I know but this episode is not only forgetable but REALLY ANNOYING. Definitely one of the worst of Season 7. They have also already done digging in Chum Caverns. This episode tries as hard as possible to annoy the audience. This episode doesn't even have any creative effort here.

12 Keep Bikini Bottom Beautiful

Why this isn't in the Top 10 List? Poor Squidward, the police gave tickets non stop even though it's ridiculous but in a hostile way, I think Battlefield Earth was funnier than this episode, please, stop torturing Squidward

I just want to walk up to that officer and beat him with an extension cord for giving Squidward all of those tickets.

This is one of my top 5 worst of this season as it is 5 or 4 on this season and the worst part is that this is paired with my most hated episode of all time (a pal for gary)

The next time I see the bikini bottom cops, I will delete the show immediately.

31 Squidward In Clarinetland

I don't understand why people don't like this episode. The idea is a nightmarish world based around Squidward, and it's handled creatively here. The only problem I had is that we don't spend much time in Clarinetland. Other than that, this might be one of my favorites on Season 7! It's creative and pretty funny.


I have a knife for whoever put this on the list

OK I'm just kidding about the knife thing

32 Sponge-Cano!

Squidward already had a confession in April Fools' Day episode from Season 1, it seems they're just repeating it here, only with more torture, and with a somewhat hypocritical moral. The only good thing was the flying doplhin, this thing was too ridiculous to be bad. Other than that, it's a pretty bad one.

Why Why Why? Overly stupid and filled with stupididty

33 That's No Lady

This is a Season 4 episode. Not season 7.

34 The Curse of Bikini Bottom
35 The Krabby Kronicle

This is season 6.

This is season 6

This is one of those episodes that makes you really hate Mr. Krabs! - courier28

37 Patrick Got Served

This was on the season 10 list... - Goatworlds

This is not an episode, if your talking Whats Eating Patrick that season 9
