Worst SpongeBob SquarePants Specials

Never watch these. Paul Tibbitt is the worst T.V. show creator in history.

The Top Ten

1 Truth or Square SpongeBob's Truth or Square is a 2009 made-for-television comedy special and an hour-long episode of the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants

Really you guys truth or square is that bad

This a complete waste of time

I love frozen face off it's a sponge bob Xmas Christmas who and this special friend or foe dunces and dragons

Very boring episode. It has a decent story, but the Patchy scenes drag on way too long.

2 What Ever Happened To SpongeBob (WhoBob WhatPants)

This is the worst episode on the list. Episodes from the miniseries The Legends of Bikini Bottom and Spongebob's Runaway Roadtrip are on this list, although they aren't specials, and they're way too high on this list. The Battle of Bikini Bottom and Spongebob vs the Patty Gadget are on here, although they aren't specials, and they are great episodes. A VIDEOGAME is on this list, although Spongebob Squarepants vs the Big One is awful. Also, some GREAT specials are on this list, like A Squarepants Family Vacation, Frozen Face - Off, The Great Patty Caper, Party Pooper Pants, Ugh, Dunces and Dragons, Spongebob's Last Stand, It Came From Goo Lagoon (which is NOT titled Goo Lagoon) and Pest of the West are on this list. I'm not mentioning the good episodes from the two miniseries, Spongebob vs the Patty Gadget and The Battle of Bikini Bottom because they aren't specials. But What Ever Happened to Spongebob is my personal least favorite special and one of the worst Spongebob episodes of all ...more

The worst special in my opinion. Lazy writing, unlikable characters, check!

What the Heck is with this list LOL

Why does Patrick call SpongeBob idiot boy when He knows he is stupid and remember not until 4 from I had a accident

3 SpongeBob, You're Fired!

Number 1 now

Get this number 1 now - Hellohi

I actually enjoyed a squarepants family vacation, but this episode is terrible! Why is this #10 and a squarepants family vacation #1?

This should be called spongebob your filler.

4 Party Pooper Pants

What is this special doing on this list? I love Party Pooper Pants. It's nowhere near the "worst special" if you ask me.

I hate this episode

5 A SquarePants Family Vacation

This is possibly the worst I have seen in Spongebob’s show. But I think seasons 5-10 are worse but there are some exceptions. I still respect others opinions so no hating.

This special is so boring that it feels like its an hour long

No this is a good special and I like the great patty caper, frozen face off, truth or square and Atlantis squarepantis

Its bad but you should've picked sponge Bob your fored

6 Atlantis SquarePantis

I actually quite like this... It's kind of good if it didn't have the Patchy segments... - MasterHand

This episode could've been amazing. SpongeBob and his friends going to Atlantis? How does that sound like a bad episode? What makes this idea so bad? Well... filler. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

The lord royal highness is more like Lord stupid jerk.

Am I the only one who loves this episode?

7 The Sponge Who Could Fly

This episode is so underrated. Weren’t the songs just beautiful and relaxing?! And patchy scenes were hilarious! That plot twist at the end! OLD MAN JENKINS! I thought the fact that the bikini bottomites thought he owed them favours was apart of the comedy in the episode. This episode never gets old, seriously guys watch it again and you will see how wonderful it is

Two words: WALK CYCLES!

8 Ghoul Fools

Awful episode.

An underhated episode. It is terrible and it should be higher. It's not funny, it's creepy and I hate the ending. Review of other specials on the list:

Truth or Square - horrible. Not the worst, but it's probably #1 because it's a bigger waste of time

Whobob Whatpants - terrible. Probably the worst special on this list

Party Pooper Pants - a great episode with great jokes, great pacing, a great song, great Patchy segments, great SpongeBob segments, everything about this episode is great! Why is it on here?

SpongeBob You're Fired - just like Truth or Square and Atlantis Squarepantis, BORING! Terrible episode

A SquarePants Family Vacation - meh. Has a lot of good in it and a lot of bad in it. Should be a bit lower.

Atlantis Squarepantis - if Truth or Square is #1, this should be at least #2, although I prefer Truth or Square over this horrible episode. Both are terrible, the only advantage of Truth or Square is that it has only one or two ...more

9 Frozen Face Off

I personally have no problems with this episode, except for one thing: the whole cast is using Gary, the equivalent of a house cat, as a sled dog. - Garythesnail

The worst character in this episode was Patrick.

Screw you I like this episode

Come on! This is a coool episode!

10 Mr. Krabs Takes A Vacation

This isn't a special - NostalgiaMonkey

This episode is the most boring.

The Contenders

11 The Great Patty Capper

This is episode is REALLY disgusting.

It's also really pointless.

12 Welcome To The Bikini Bottom Triangle

The name sounds like an underwater Illuminati... plus this episode was boring.

That's it? That's the triangle? Paul Tibbitt we expect better from you.

13 The Curse of The Hex

The hex is disgusting and creepy.

14 The Monster Who Came To Bikini Bottom

The whole Legends of Bikini Bottom special was just a let down.

15 The Clash Of Triton

Arguably the biggest false advertising in television history.

Biggest ratings trap in the world!

16 The Battle for Bikini Bottom

Dude but it was a fan made even though has the original animation but it was still awesome

There was an episode based on this I reccomnd it it's my 2nd or third favorite episode trust me.

17 SpongeBob vs the Patty Gadget

I'm watching the laziest 2-minute special with the cheesiest dialogue of spongebob history.

This was supposed to be a 30-minute special, but the writer was so lazy that he made it 2 minutes.

This was supposed to be a special but geebus... A 2-MINUTE SPECIAL?

18 Mooncation

What I love this episode - Jdb_98

This episode stunk so bad.

19 Ugh

The only thing I don't like about this special was the Patchy segment.

I can not stand this episode! - PatrickStar

20 SpongeBob Heropants

This is a game not a special

21 SpongeBob vs. The Big One: Beach Party Cook-Off


22 Have You Seen This Snail?

I'm confused I first watched this episode than saw all the love it got and I'm just confused.

23 Dunces and Dragons

I liked the story, but boy... I DESPISE THE SONGS IN THIS EPISODE!

24 Squirrel Jelly

A relatively new episode, and my least favorite special of all time. Sandy is HORRIBLE in this one, and after that part ends, the second part of the episode is even more creepy. The whole episode is a mess and I just waited for it to end. In post sequel Spongebob, the characters are even worse, especially Sandy and Spongebob. Sandy is portrayed more as a scientist and gets no more karate episodes, and when the writers try to give Sandy a non science episode, they make her cruel, abusive and worse than Patrick and Mr. Krabs ever were. In Sportz, she was also extremely abusive and cruel, but it worked there because she was getting revenge on Squidward for torturing Spongebob and Patrick. In this episode, Spongebob and Patrick are again tortured, but this time by Sandy, and she has no redeeming quality at all. The fact that I hate this episode more than Ghoul Fools and Whobob Whatpants makes it my 2nd least favorite of all time. Nature Pants is the only episode that is worse and that is ...more

This isn’t a special it’s just over 15 minutes and it was just a waste of time it’s definitely just a mediocre episode - 015804

25 SpongeBob's Last Stand

This was the last great special

26 Goo Lagoon
27 Pest of the West

My only REAL problem with this episode is this: Everyone in town is terrified of Dead Eye (Old-Western Plankton) Because he’s done such horrible things to them. But here’s when the problem kicks in: He’s practically only 2 INCHES tall and had not one weapon to speak of. I mean in Real Spongebob episodes that aren’t flashbacks (AKA episodes that aren’t Dunces and Dragons or this) everyone feared Plankton because he had gadgets and was an evil scientist with lots of power and the joke was he’s so small. This episode was trying to parody an old western the same way Dunces and Dragons was trying to paraody a medieval movie. What they forgot was what made the villains in westerns so scary: Guns and Gangs. I understand there can’t be guns in a kid friendly show like Spongebob, but come on, at least give Dead Eye a gang. Other than that, This special is good. Not amazing but not bad. Good song about Dead Eye and a slightly below average song called Idiot Friends. Tried to be as ...more

28 The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom

The animation in this episode is beyond lazy and UGLY.

29 The Splinter

Not a special, but still bad enough to trump all of these.

30 Back to The Past

Pieguy called it his 2nd least favorite in the season, and I understand why. I have no idea why did I have to put it on here? It's terrible. The painful pacing, the lack of good jokes, and it's a complete mess with all that time travelling and stuff. This shouldn't have been a 14 minute special, this probably should have been an 8 minute short. Vote for this!

This isn’t a special - 015804

31 SpongeBob's Big Birthday Blowout

Its not very bad, but c mon, guys, it could be better
