* For me, it's the episode "Demolition Doofus." This is an episode which very much destroys a sympathetic character for me: Mrs. Puff. In the episode, thanks to [=SpongeBob=]'s wreckless driving, Mrs. Puff gets her inflating sac punctured. And her reaction? She enters [=SpongeBob=] into a demolition derby in hope that he would literally die in it. Unfortunately for her, he survives thanks to his driving. She then crosses the MoralEventHorizon by attempting to run [=SpongeBob=] down with one of the monster trucks. I used to feel sorry for Mrs. Puff whenever she had to put up with [=SpongeBob=], but this episode is pretty much an OutOfCharacterMoment for her, and she wants [=SpongeBob=] out of her life so much, that she is perfectly willing to''' kill''' him in order for that to happen. What made me firmly hate her was this exchange--

* Tropers/KoopaKid17: "All That Glitters" ruined [=SpongeBob=] forever for me. I could go on forever about why I hated this episode from [=SpongeBob's=] {{Wangst}} to him spending half the episode naked (because NakedPeopleAreFunny? [[SarcasmMode Right]]). Since I can only choose one moment that still makes my blood boil to this day, it would be the part where the replacement spatula [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech tells off SpongeBob]] for [[DisproportionateRetribution making it flip Krabby Patties]], hands down. The thing suddenly [[TookALevelInJerkass talks down to SpongeBob]] [[RichBitch because it feels the job is too menial for its status]]. It then [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere runs away when SpongeBob tries to get it back]], [[KickTheDog though not before continuing to give jab after jab at him]]. Easily a candidate for the most mean-spirited scene in the show's history considering the sacrifice poor [=SpongeBob=] was willing to make for it.

* Yellow-Spider-Kitty: While I do think "Something Smells" is a funny episode, One part I can not stand is how it ends. Scarth that there is no ending. I'll explain after they find out it was the sundea that gave them the bad breath, they run around saying "We Stink" and hug Squidward. Even if it's suppose to be a joke it just makes no sense and it's a pretty corny ending in otherwise a soild episode.

* ''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 Pearl shows up despite the fact that her dream was the only one that Spongebob didn't ruin! That is just the lowest of the low and one of the weaker bunch of the first three seasons!

That is just the lowest of the low and one of the weaker bunch of the first three seasons!

* Tropers/{{VulgarProboscidean}}: The episode "A Day Without Tears" is an insult to Spongebob during the pre-movie era, the takes Spongebob's [[{{Flanderization}} Up To Eleven in which he cries about practically everything, he cries about ripping his pants, he cries about having to throw away a Krabby Patty, and he cries about Squidward yelling at him, despite those things happening to Spongebob in previous episodes (Ripped Pants, Born Again Krabs, and every episode where Spongebob and/or Patrick annoy Squidward). I don't know who that crybaby was in this episode because it's not Spongebob Squarepants.

* travisbob: My dethroning moment for Spongebob as a series is definitely the film "Sponge out of Water." The film was hyped up as being the first Spongebob thing (aside from the comics) that directly involved Stephen Hillenburg's creative input. It was hyped as being a return to the show's "golden age" roots. The trailers made it look fantastic, with fantastic animation, great drawings/designs, and gorgeous drawings And... the actual movie was just plain awful. Only one joke in the film made me laugh (the joke about the man on life support.) The only other funny jokes were spoiled by the previews. Everything else was soulless, unfunny, and cringeworthy. The talking CGI seagulls were obnoxious, there were fart/poop jokes left and right (seriously, was classic Spongebob even known for that at all?!) and all of the plot points were less funny versions of previous episodes. Time travel, superhero spoofs, Plankton and Spongebob's friendship, and the apocalypse were all done so much better in previous episodes and the first movie. Aside from the admittedly [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome fantastic artwork]] and [[AnimationBump animation]] (the animators and layout artists really gave this film their all,) this film was a complete mess; totally devoid of humor, charm, and soul. When I saw the film for the first time, I wondered why it was as cringeworthy as those CGI chipmunk movies. Unsurprisingly, the film heavily involved the creative input of those same chipmunk guys. I really hope that it was just a fluke, and that the rest of the Hillenburg-involved Spongebob content after this will be enjoyable.
