Worst SpongeBob SquarePants Specials

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

The Top Ten

1 A SquarePants Family Vacation

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

Road, road, road, OK PATRICK WE HAD ENOUGH YOU ARE THE WORST. - TopTenJackson

2 Mr. Krabs Takes A Vacation

This episode is the most boring. - TopTenJackson

This isn't a special - NostalgiaMonkey

3 The Great Patty Capper

This is episode is REALLY disgusting. - TopTenJackson

It's also really pointless.

4 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. - TopTenJackson

Screw you I like this episode

Come on! This is a coool episode!

5 Atlantis SquarePantis

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. - TopTenJackson

Such a boring episode

HOW IS THIS NUMBER 7? - onellhawil

6 Truth or Square

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.

It's so bad I oughta wear a sweater to hold on to that angry feeling.

This a complete waste of time

7 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. - TopTenJackson

8 SpongeBob, You're Fired!

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

This episode is Terrible. If you never seen it, don't

This should be called spongebob your filler.

Get this number 1 now - Hellohi

9 The Curse of The Hex

The hex is disgusting and creepy. - TopTenJackson

10 The Monster Who Came To Bikini Bottom

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

The Contenders

11 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

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.

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

12 Party Pooper Pants

I hate this episode

13 Mooncation

What I love this episode - Jdb_98

This episode stunk so bad. - TopTenJackson

14 The Clash Of Triton

Arguably the biggest false advertising in television history.

Biggest ratings trap in the world!

15 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?

16 The Sponge Who Could Fly

Two words: WALK CYCLES!

17 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.

18 Ugh

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

I can not stand this episode! - PatrickStar

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


20 Ghoul Fools
21 Dunces and Dragons Dunces and Dragons

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

22 SpongeBob's Last Stand

This was the last great special

23 Goo Lagoon
24 SpongeBob Heropants
25 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

26 Have You Seen This Snail? Have You Seen This Snail?
27 The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom

The animation in this episode is beyond lazy and UGLY.
