Worst SpongeBob SquarePants Specials

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

The Top Ten

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

Liked the celebrities, but the Patchy segment wasn't that good.

Lots of dislikes in the SpongeBob segment.

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.

Really you guys truth or square is that bad

What Ever Happened To SpongeBob (WhoBob WhatPants)

Frustrating episodes are worse than boring ones. Truth or Square is boring. This episode is frustrating. So it's worse than Truth or Square. We really should raise this episode to #1, because it's clearly the worst. And Atlantis Squarepantis is easily worse than Truth or Square, so this is my list (worst to best):
1. Whatever Happened to Spongebob
2. Atlantis Squarepantis
3. Truth or Square (only this high because it wasted 1 hour of my life, with the other episodes wasting less time)
4. Ghoul Fools (extremely underhated special)
5. Squirrel Jelly (Sandy at her worst)
6. The Clash of Triton (extremely cringey)
7. Back to the Past (a complete mess, stupid episode)
8. Spongebob Squarepants vs. The Big One (just boring)
9. Spongebob You're Fired (boring and annoying)
10. Have You Seen This Snail (too sad and painfully slow pacing, a couple of good jokes keep it at a solid spot)
11. Shanghaied (I feel I should keep it higher because it's really awful, but ...more

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

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

I think the "face" scene is the worst part of this episode.

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.

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

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

Would've been better without singing. Still kinda like it.

The lord royal highness is more like Lord stupid jerk.

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.

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

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

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

Ghoul Fools

Ending was both weird and bad.

I remember that the original plot was that the Flying Dutchman appeared at the beginning and told SpongeBob about the houseboat with gold, but warns of a ghost, named Lord Poltergeist. The plot is then similar to the actual episode: SpongeBob goes to the Krusty Krab, tells everyone, and Mr. Krabs decides to steal the gold. After Lord P. says "Stop right there!" they walk through him, and SpongeBob is annoyed at their selfishness. When coming back to the Krusty Krab, Lord P. and his crew appear to retake their gold.

I kind of like this plot better.

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

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!

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.

The worst character in this episode was Patrick.

Wait I thought this was face freeze

Screw you I like this episode

Mr. Krabs Takes A Vacation

This isn't a special - NostalgiaMonkey

This episode is the most boring.

The Contenders

The Great Patty Capper

This is episode is REALLY disgusting.

It's also really pointless.

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.

The Curse of The Hex

The hex is disgusting and creepy.

The Monster Who Came To Bikini Bottom

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

The Clash Of Triton

Arguably the biggest false advertising in television history.

Biggest ratings trap in the world!

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.

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?


What I love this episode - Jdb_98

This episode stunk so bad.


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

I can not stand this episode! - PatrickStar

SpongeBob Heropants SpongeBob Heropants Product Image

This is a game not a special

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


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.

Dunces and Dragons

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

The Splinter

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

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
