* ''Tropers/{{Anonymous}}'': To prove that not everything pre-season 4 was an outstanding classic, "Sleepy Time" shows that all the characters' {{Jerkass}} tendencies went as far as the first season, where after [=SpongeBob=] visits the character's dreams and ruins them, and Sandy, showing that she's a SmallNameBigEgo, even in the first season said to him: "Do us all a favor and stay out of our dreams", accompanied by Squidward's "Don't we get enough of you during the day, [=SpongeBob=]?!" and everyone, including his so-called "friends" yells at him for getting into their dreams. Alright, how did they know that [=SpongeBob=] snuck into their dreams where he could've just happened to be in them?! I can understand Squidward and all, but the rest of the characters, including Mr Krabs (who back then, cared about [=SpongeBob=], despite his obsession with money) and Sandy?! Even Gary and Pearl show up despite the fact that their dreams were the only two that [=SpongeBob=] didn't ruin! That is just the lowest of the low and one of the weaker bunch of the first three seasons!

** PsiBasilisk: It gets even worse. At the very end of the episode, when Squidward is in jail, he realizes that at least he will have some peace and quiet for those ten years. Considering the sheer amount of pain and annoyance he endured, it's nice to think that Squidward would get a break from all that. Instead, it turns out that Patrick "annoying, stupid, neighbor" Star is in the jail cell with him. It disgusted me to see Squidward's only HopeSpot of peace and quiet taken away from him like that. Especially since the cell was empty when Squidward was put in there and we never see Patrick get put in. It's like the writers hate Squidward so much, they ignored all rules of logic just to make his life even more miserable than it is now.

* Loekman3: Despite all of the cruelties in "One Coarse Meal", it is not Krabs' MoralEventHorizon or Plankton's suicide that make me hate this episode; It is when [[TheWoobie Plankton's]] attempt of payback is seen as an [[DesignatedEvil evil act]] that cements it. Firstly, when Plankton uses his fear of mimes to scare Krabs, he cries to the point that we're supposed to [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic root for him]]. Secondly, even though it does not compensate Plankton's BreakTheCutie by Krabs, it would have been an okay episode if weren't for the fact that Spongebob, who previously helped Plankton of his suicide and decides to make him feel better, [[WhatTheHellHero scares him away with a hologram of whales]]; essentially, the oblivious yellow sponge single-handedly made Krabs overthrow PB as the god of all [[KarmaHoudini Karma Houdinis]] as he completely got away with scaring Plankton for weeks because he enjoyed it. Third and lastly, it makes any episodes that depict Krabs and Plankton being good pals such as "Friend Or Foe" painful to watch considering the monstrosity Krabs had become.

* ''{{Tropers/PoopyLoud4}}'': Since most of my disliked episodes have already been taken, I'll be giving my DMOS to "That Sinking Feeling". The premise of the episode is that....Spongebob and Patrick annoy the shit out of Squidward by giggling and digging. That's it, Literally, The entire 11 minutes is just Spongebob and Patrick annoying Butt-Monkey Squidward. We've seen them do this plenty of times before, and we already saw digging in the episode "Chum Caverns" in the last season, so there's nothing original to be found here. It's easily one of the most dull and boring episodes of the entire show.

* ''Tropers/BlahaIsAFraud'': Krusty Krushers. The flanderization of Spongebob and Patrick being childish is off the scale, not to mention a lot of homoerotic innuendo (the holding hands / skipping around in circles, Spongebob leering at Patrick's iron butt, etc)

* [=BobSaget9=]: I really do not like the shift into a more "cartoony" presentation Spongebob took, and there are several episodes from this season alone I could mention. But since I can only pick one, "Snooze You Lose". The plot starts out simple: Squidward is trying to sleep for his Bikini Bottom Philharmonic audition the next day, but Spongebob and Patrick keep him up with a loud burping contest ([[UncannyValley complete with "Face Freeze"-level facial animations]]) and just general loud, screaming annoyance for so long that (after going for a walk to try and tire himself out), he passes out at Spongebob's house. [[ThisIsGoingToSuck This is the last semi-tolerable part of the episode.]] From there, Spongebob and Patrick try to wake him up with various methods (including loudly playing some electrical guitars that Spongebob now has for some reason), but Squidward's still asleep. Then they decide "Fuck it", and make a clone of Squidward in Spongebob's lab that spontaneously becomes giant and escapes to rampage across Bikini Bottom. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer By the way, Spongebob now has a laboratory in his house. Because.]] [[MindScrew And it's forgotten about just as quickly. Because.]] [[FromBadToWorse And then we get to the "highlight" of the episode:]] Patrick and Spongebob proceed to '''''[[{{Squick}} climb inside Squidward]]''''' and control him like a puppet. If you ever wondered how one would go about making [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime the Jake Suit]] fucked up, there you go. What follows is a parade of asinine annoyances as Patrick and Spongebob try to find the Bikini Bottom Philharmonic, with such highlights as a "No dancing" zone, Spongebob [[{{Squick}} mangling and chomping on Squidward's brain]], Squidward's clarinet winding up in his ''[[{{Squick}} ass]]'', and Squidward waking up mid-audition and regaining enough control of his body to ''[[{{Squick}} puke Spongebob and Patrick up]]''. Overall, the overtly exaggerated facial expressions are overdone, the lack of any rational thinking is annoying, the clear lack of any sense of a fuck in the story structure is grating, and it's painfully clear that at this point, the writers of Spongebob flat out '''gave up'''.
