* LoveItOrHateIt: Even with not taking the SeasonalRot into account, people are divided on whether the show is an enjoyable romp with hilarious characterization and brilliant comedic timing or an annoying, random mess that needs to take its meds.

* PanderingToTheBase:
** With {{Ascended Meme}}s ranging from Spengbab in "Face Freeze", to borderline tasteless suicide jokes by Ascending the creepypasta, "Squidward's Suicide" in "Are You Happy Now?", it's becoming increasingly obvious in the new seasons that the writers want to appeal more to its adult base and seems to forget most of the time that they're supposed to be writing a children's show.
** In the irony of this, the show became more childish than the pre-movie ones, relies on disgusting, crude jokes instead of ridiculous jokes that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults with some surreal stuff.

* MisBlamed: Many fans pin the blame of [=SpongeBob=]'s Un-Cancellation in 2005 to the financial success of TheMovie, which was originally intended to be the Series Finale. In actuality, Nickelodeon was fighting tooth and nail to revive the series between 2002-2004 due to the high ratings and merchandising the show was getting during that timespan.

In actuality, Nickelodeon was fighting tooth and nail to revive the series between 2002-2004 due to the 2002-2004. Seeing how high the ratings and merchandising sales from the merchanding the show was getting during that timespan.in the first years, Nickelodeon was doing everything they can to revive production on the series from convincing creator Stephen Hillenburg to eventually getting writer Paul Tibbitt as showrunner, and eventually, they revived production the same year as the movie's release, and the first revival episodes started airing in 2005.

** Patrick ''especially'' is prone to this treatment. Particularly because of his infamous quote in "The Card", fans have been outright calling him a complete sociopath when he clearly means no harm (at least for the most part). Granted, he does act insensitive towards SpongeBob in "Driven to Tears", "The Splinter", "Stuck in the Wringer", "Yours, Mine and Mine", "Oral Report", "Pet Sitter Pat", and "Little Yellow Book". But people tend to exaggerate Patrick's traits and TheMysteriousMrEnter even called him ''one of the most evil characters in SpongeBob and cartoon history'' next to ''"One Coarse Meal" Krabs'', even saying he's '''worse''', despite the fact that he still has his nice moments such as "Have You Seen This Snail?" and "The Pink Purloiner".

* AccidentalAesop: ''[=SpongeGuard=] On Duty'': If someone is drowning, save diving into the water as a last resort, otherwise you'll risk drowning yourself.

** Mr. Krabs. While he was already something of a BaseBreakingCharacter in the pre-movie era due to his greed, his Flanderization in the post-movie era caused him to become near-universally despised, to the point where many fans just want to see him suffer [[KarmicDeath a truly horrible fate]], like he almost did in the movie. Recent episodes have seen his rivalry with Plankton devolve into making his life hell just for fun, feeding poison or rotten food to his customers intentionally for the sake of an extra dollar, or extorting and abusing his employees. The fact that he [[KarmaHoudini gets away with these]] at least 80% of the time doesn't help. According to writers and the creator himself, Krabs is ''supposed'' to look as bad (if not worse) than Plankton himself. It's just the matter of [[KarmaHoudini letting him get away with it]] that they and the audience seem split over.
