* AcceptabelTargets: In "Shanghaied", SpongeBob wishes for the Flying Dutchman to become a vegetarian so he won't eat Patrick, Squidward, and him. He then transforms into a ultra-hippie.

*** Is SpongeBob naïve in his torment to Squidward or is he pretending to be naïve so that he can get away with tormenting Squidward?
*** When faced with a life-or-death situation, is he really just annoying, or does he act ''deliberately'' annoying so his captors will release him? "The Tattletale Strangler," "Born Again Krabs," and "Welcome to the Chum Bucket" imply that this is one of Spongebob's clever tactics to escape from danger.
** Squidward: a {{jerkass}} who deserves his ButtMonkey status, or the show's biggest [[TheWoobie woobie?]] Does he completely hate Spongebob, or does he care about him deep down?
** Mr. Krabs can be a decent boss who cares slightly about SpongeBob, or otherwise a greedy Jerkass. Does he have a FreudianExcuse for his actions?

---> '''Patrick:''' Spongebob, you can't always expect my usual brand of stupidity. I like to mix it up; keep you on your toes.

** And speaking of "Plankton's Regular" Spongebob fully supported Mr. Krabs and was just as bad as him, but after that episode came "The Krabby Kronicle", where Spongebob was disgusted at Mr. Krabs due to the latter forcing him to write lies about his friends and working him to death on the newspaper under a threat that he will lose his job, leading Spongebob to write an article about Mr. Krabs' torture. In later episodes where Mr. Krabs is the villain, Spongebob is disgusted at his actions and is not as big a doormat as he was in previous episodes, or not being a doormat at all. In "No Hat For Pat" he was furious at Mr. Krabs for exploiting Patrick and making him injure himself for profit, in "Greasy Buffons" he objected to Mr. Krabs selling greasy food and became absolutely furious when Patrick was poisoned, in "The Cent of Money" he was absolutely furious at Mr. Krabs for exploiting Gary just to get money, and in "One Coarse Meal" he even attempts helps Plankton get revenge on Mr. Krabs when Krabs exploits Plankton's fear of whales to torment Plankton to the point of suicide. (Although this is negated at the end when he betrays Plankton anyway.)
** "Treats!" sort of feels like an apology letter for Spongebob's behavior in "A Pal For Gary". The episode shows that [=SpongeBob=] will literally go around the world to make Gary happy.

** In 'Little Yellow Book', none of the characters are even remotely likable from Squidward being a massive Jerkass to Spongebob by reading his diary and bragging it towards everyone, the citizens of Bikini bottom giving Squidward a DisproportionateRetribution for reading it and being massive hypocrites throughout the episode and Spongebob being an idiot for leaving his own diary unguarded.
** "Demolition Doofus" has Ms. Puff trying to ''murder'' Spongebob for rupturing her inflation sac in an accident. While she is portrayed as too AxCrazy to sympathize with, Spongebob makes light of ''crippling'' her by calling her "Ms. Pop", doesn't understand why she flew into a rage from this, and thinks that ''she looks better deflated''.

** Mrs. Puff just wants to be left alone by Spongebob, and even compared to Squidward and Plankton, only a handful of circumstances does she take unscrupulous measures on him. Unlike the previous two, this was not a result of Flanderization either, she was an undeserved victim of Spongebob's idiocy from her first appearance.

** Spongebob himself in the episode ''Stuck in the Wringer'', where he is chewed out by the townspeople for getting rightfully angry that Patrick glued him into a wringer and showed little sympathy towards Spongebob's plight.
** Plankton used to be an ordinary and fairly competent villain, but now that Mr. Krabs has been {{Flanderiz|ation}}ed into a {{Jerkass}} and Plankton has suffered VillainDecay, one can't help but side with Plankton. A good example is in "Chum Fricasse", sure he was a bit quick to rub his competitive edge in Krabs' face, but it's hardly enough to make him a villian. Taking Krabs' employee can be said to be mean, but Squidward '''did''' leave out of his own free will. The only bad thing that can be said is that he maybe should have resisted more or outright refused when Squidward told him to undercook the chum, but it was still, ultimately Squidward's idea in the first place.

*** Alternatively the second "chunk" of Season 1 episodes, starting with SB-129, as that was where the animation improved, the characters got more developed, and more people were brought on to work for the series.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: While Mr. Krabs is often derided as having been [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] into an unlikeable jackass in post-movie seasons, at least two pre-movie episodes ("Krabby Land" and "Jellyfish Jam") feature him in an unambiguously antagonistic role. What probably keeps those two episodes from receiving so much fan hate is that they end with him [[LaserGuidedKarma getting what's coming to him]].

** In "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II", Mermaid Man's speech to Barnacle Boy after the latter berates Spongebob. Some of the words being "Don't squash his enthusiasm. After all, he could be the hero of tomorrow, or the villain. [[TheIncredibles Sound familiar?!]]
** Wouldn't this qualify more as HilariousInHindsight?
