* In "Pressure", Sandy gets into an argument with the other main characters about which is better: Land animals or sea animals. They taunt her until she tries to prove her superiority by ripping her suit off and taking off her helmet and ''smashing it, leaving her wearing a bikini.'' The scene is frightening because her smashed helmet releases an air bubble which quickly floats away, and you can't help but think, "That was her only air!" The worst part is that her friends laugh at her as she begins drowning, until her lungs shrivel up and break off of her airways ''in an x-ray''. Once she realizes she's about to die, she quickly finds a pickle jar which inexplicably has air in it and sticks her head into it.

* Believe it or not, the "cheap walk cycles" from FakeOutOpening in "Sponge Who Could Fly" actually creeped out some younger audiences. This is mostly because Spongebob acted really ''really'' strange where he goes from being happy, to being goofy, to acting paranoid about being followed, to explosive shock, over and over again without any explanation whatsoever. Sure, the scene is just for laugh, but even for this series and for that time (it was released in 2003, before the movie), the comedy in this scene is so bizarre and young audiences can't help but feel creeped out on it.

** What got to some was [=SpongeBob=]'s sobs of fear when Sandy was pouring the hot sauce on his tongue. And then you saw the face...
* [=SpongeBob=]'s [[EyeScream eye falling out]] in "[[SickEpisode Suds]]".



* "Your Shoe's Untied" has a scene where [=SpongeBob=], who doesn't know how to tie his shoes, tries to give Squidward a Krabby Patty. He hallucinates his shoelaces as hideous-looking [[SnakesAreSinister snakes]] who choke him!

It's not so bad at first, but once everything seems to be resolved, Squidward wanted to be fused again, just so he could be a star... It ends with all the characters becoming trapped in an ''Film/{{Akira}}''-esque ''[[GrotesqueGallery hideous flesh-colored blob with random moaning heads sticking out of it]].''
