Worst Squidward Torture Episodes


The Top Ten

1 Choir Boys

This is without a doubt the worst Squidward torture episode, because not only is his torment undeserving, but SpongeBob does all this on purpose. In other Squidward torture episodes, an argument could be made (a weak one at that) that SpongeBob is too stupid to realise the pain he's causing Squidward. this episode is inexcusable and behind A Pal for Gary, this is SpongeBob at his worst.

To this day, this still remains my most hated SpongeBob episode. Not only is its portrayal of SpongeBob extremely atrocious (since he does this on purpose,) or even its torment towards Squidward (who doesn't deserve a single thing here,) but it's also filled with annoying throat clearing gags, other anti-humor gags (Squidward getting stung by the jellyfish as an example.) There's even an overly gross shot of Squidward's arm after he's stung (typical season 6.)

This Episode is the worst as SpongeBob was outright evil here, torturing Squidward and on purpose and SpongeBob won in the end despite the harm he caused to Squidward.

I used to like the episode when I was little but I don't like it anymore but I hate classic spongebob

This abomination is the quintessence of squidward's torture. SpongeBob in choir boys may have been bad, but in this episode, every single character, including mrs. Puff, hates squidward, much like in the episode squid wood. For being harassed by SpongeBob, squidward tries to escape, and is punished for that. And for having the right to be mad, squidward is crippled for life. Even when I was a little kid, I knew this episode had problems. This episode is also very disturbing and actually implies that squidward deserves it. So, this is worse than choir boys because everyone was against squidward, and squidward got the most beating for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON. In choir boys, SpongeBob had SOME excuse, because squidward kinda mocked him. In this episode, SpongeBob didn't have an excuse but he got off scot free anyway. Also, in choir boys, SpongeBob wanted to go to choir, but here, he didn't really want to do anything except make squidward miserable. This episode is worse by just THAT much.

One of the worst squidward torture episodes ever with SpongeBob being really creepy and making him get beat up multiple times for no reason. I really hated the ending when squidward was in a body cast and failed the test because of SpongeBob torturing him. The writers really need to stop making squidward get tortured by SpongeBob for no reason and rewarding SpongeBob. It just makes me feel bad for squidward

This episode is the most infamous squid ward torture where SpongeBob has a creepy attraction to him and squid gets beaten up for no reason - Pastakirby7

Uncomfortable to watch

I have nothing to say about this blatant excuse for an episode. SpongeBob and Patrick ruin squidward's perfect day and get away with it, and squidward gets punished for trying to have a good day. And this is the first episode of SpongeBob that actually began to damage the show's overall quality. This kinda stuff happened much more often later in the series.

This is the episode that started it all, in the season that started it all. Squidward getting tortured by Spongebob and Patrick's stupidity. They weren't their worst in this episode. It's just the circumstances that make it bad. Like when Squidward got paint on his face a folks thought he was sick. And the ending.

This episode is one of the worst Squidward torture episodes. SpongeBob and Patrick do everything on purpose - bobbythebrony

4 Cephalopod Lodge

Once every month squidward is surprisingly happy. So SpongeBob and patrick stalk him (squidward is unaware) and they sneak inside his club. The club members blame squidward for the outsiders in the club. So they kick him out of the club, and patrick falls on him. Then, the club person takes off squiwards uniform, hat and even underwear. Squidward is very sad. So SpongeBob and patrick try talk the club member to let squidward back in the club. They claim its not their fault (when it clearly is), so the club member says squidward is never allowed in the club. Squidward is depressed and even says he wants to slam his head repeatedly since they took away the last good thing in his life. Then SpongeBob and patrick come up with their own club and annoy squidward. After that, they kidnapp squidward and take him to jellyfish fields and torture him (they sting his tongue with jellyfish). They then give squidward a chicken suit. After all that, they finally realize squidward doesn't want to ...more

This episodes practically implies that Squidward can never be happy with SpongeBob or Patrick around. In my top ten worst SpongeBob episodes, this is number ten.

Those idiots ruined the last good thing In Squidward's life - bobbythebrony

This episode is illuminati confirmed

5 Squid Baby

SpongeBob and Patrick take care of an adult in a diaper. With head trauma. On a kid show. - Garythesnail

This episode is very disturbing, because head trauma is the #1 worst thing for a baby. And the episode knowingly tolerates this. By the way, taking care of an adult in a diaper while giving them head trauma is overly horrendous and doesn't belong in this show.

Squidward is an Adult in a diaper and there is lots of spit and drool. - Pastakirby7

This episode was just disturbing.

6 Squid's Visit

This episode is not as terrible as God forbid One Coarse Meal, Little Yellow Book, Pet Sitter Pat, A Pal For Gary, SpongeBob You're Fired, but it's worse than Demolition Doofus. The reason I hate this episode is how serious they take being disturbing. And that close up at the end is creepy. 1.5/10

I sometimes wonder how weird it would be if my house looked EXACTLY like my neighbor's house - Ajkloth

SpongeBob steals squidwards vacuum cleaner and lures him into his replica of squidwards house. Squidward is driven to insanity, and gets his house burned down. This is the most disturbing episode of SpongeBob, because SpongeBob harasses squidward and kidnaps him, and the episode takes detail way too far and shoehorns squidward to stay at SpongeBob's "House" at the end of the episode. Its abysmal!

This gives me sponge on nightmares(probably like the ones squidward has)

7 Breath Of Fresh Squidward

Squid ward gets his personality changed and we are supposed to root for SpongeBob, even though he is a douche bag to squid ward in all other torture episodes and no we will not root for SpongeBob thank you. - Pastakirby7

Why does this episode suck so much? This episode states that Squidward can NOT have happiness. Just why does this even exist?

At the end he tries to ELECTROCUTE HIMSELF due to misery/depression after getting kicked out of his own party. That's dark.

This was more of a spongebob torture episode. at least squidward was happy throughout the episode.

2 problems
It teaches kids that if you do the right things, you get maned, tortured and heated for doing the right things
The ending line is one of the most infuriating lines an episode can end on (not the most but its up there) - Pastakirby7

This WILL be the worst, even if the show beats the record of CBS EVENING NEWS, Squidward torture porn EVER! - imacg4

NO SpongeBob YOU forgot your boat smarts and caused a big crash also I WILL RIP YOU IN HALF!

This is actually a Double Torture Episode
OF Squidward And Mrs Puff! - onellhawil

9 Smoothe Jazz at Bikini Bottom

Squidward wins concert tickets only for them to be eaten by a fat, inconsiderate slob (Patrick), who proceeds to get rewarded for interrupting the concert. Squidward gets kicked out while SpongeBob performs on stage. This is not only the worst Squidward Torture, but also Patrick at his absolute worst. The only episode worse than this is One Coarse Meal.

The fact that there isn't a Patrick Star torture porn after this makes me sick. Squidward was drawn to absolute insanity and when Patrick ate both backstage passes and got in with them IN HIS STOMACH essentially, I wanted to see Squidward gut him apart and enter with SpongeBob.

The episode is about Squidward and SpongeBob going to a concert. Did Patrick really need to be in it? The prick is why this is a bad episode - bobbythebrony

This should be number three

10 Pineapple Fever

Most torture episodes show us a day in life of squidward but this one shoehorns him in just to torture him. - Pastakirby7


The Contenders

11 House Fancy

Squidward gets his toenail ripped off

Squidward won in the end

I actually like this episode. I think Squilliam's house is cool, and the toenail scene is only one part. Otherwise, I like this one.

It is a "meh" episode for me

12 Squid Wood

Where do we start...

I love this one - Gangem

This was when SpongeBob's character flanderisation took its toll. - Garythesnail

Out of all the season 4 sqiudward touture porns this is the worst

13 Restraining Spongebob

Now I am starting to hate the writers because when they couldn't use SpongeBob to drive squidward to insanity they decided to use Patrick instead and when squidward replaced SpongeBob's name with Patrick's... Patrick started laughing hysterically.

Felt bad for Squidward in this one. Patrick can be such a big jerk sometimes.

Why didn't squidward just restrain both spongebob and Patrick?

14 The Thing

Should be in the top 10 for sure, I just feel bad for poor Squidward being trapped in a cement prison and abused the entire time. Yet another episode with Squidward having his life ruined, being treated like absolute garbage and crying for mercy just to suit the writers sadistic Squidward torture fetish. Just Terrible, enough said.

SpongeBob and Patrick's annoyance sends Squidward covered in cement and treated abusively.

This should be in the top 5.

15 Slide Whistle Stooges

Why don't people think of this one as much as other Squidward torture porns?

How do they not have the tech to remove a slide whistle from one's throat?

This episode is just terrible and annoying!

It's episodes like these that I wish the Bikini Bottomites were all dead

HOW IS THIS ON THE LIST! This is Squidward's best moment ever in the show. That ending screenshot is Squidward at his happiest in the show's history.

This episode is terrible, just terrible, it makes Squidward depressed and suicidal only because he was trying to teach everyone in bikini bottom, he was happy at the end but that doesn't forgive how much this episode was bad for squidward; - smwc23105

The thing that ruins this episodes is the citizens fighting and then saying they know it's wrong and they were only joking

18 Don't Look Now

Squidward deserved his torture in this episode, he was trying to attack them, his charade was torture to them.

SpongeBob and Patrick torture squidward thinking he's a scary "fisherman trying to catch them and eat them" with their household stuff.

Squidward was being a jerk for trying to scare them

19 Are You Happy Now?

This is a depressing episode.

Worst episode ever

More people need to vote for thi I added it a while ago its its not nere the top of the list

He trys to commit suicide come on

20 Jellyfishing

This has to be one of the worst out there. It started off as a bit of good old karma, but then, when Squidward was in a cast and could do NOTHING about it is when the torture begins. First, he get hot soup blown on him by Patrick. Then, he's treated to visual torture when SpongeBob keeps licking his lips. Then, in Jellyfish Fields, is when the real torture begins. Patrick, being Patrick, shoves a net through his hand. Then, he's stung on the nose by a jellyfish, which is understandably his breaking point. He chases it and catches it. Then, a giant jellyfish comes out and stings him. He comes home, in ANOTHER full-body cast, and is understandably still mad. After he sics the little jellyfish on SpongeBob and Patrick, the giant one comes back just to sting him AGAIN! Bottom line, this episode has the most Squidward torture out of most of these episodes.

Firmly grasp it

Actually I think it is a good episode.
