** "Squirrel Jokes" shows how hurtful politically incorrect humor (i.e. racist/sexist/homophobic etc. jokes) can be, as well as the fact that it's just plain lazy. Considering SpongeBob's main demographic, it's a very good moral.

* ToughActToFollow: Described by WebOriginal/RebelTaxi as "the Spongebob Syndrome," the show has become such [[CashCowFranchise a financial and pop-culture behemoth]] that any Nicktoon that succeeds it and isn't ''immediately'' as successful as ''Spongebob'' currently is [[ScrewedByTheNetwork will be canceled before it's widespread appeal even has a chance to grow]].

* SeasonalRot: The show never was the same from Season 4 onwards.[[note]]When the show was UnCanceled in 2004, due to [[MoneyDearBoy the box-office gross]] the feature [[WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie film adaptation]] (which was the intended GrandFinale to the show - season 3 ended production back in 2002, until Nickelodeon decided to revive the show) made in addition to the high ratings the show maintained, creator Stephen Hillenburg notably changed his position in the show's production and co creator Derek Drymon left.[[/note]] Once it started back up, the show became much more grotesque compared to the earlier seasons - post-movie seasons have VulgarHumor, massive {{flanderization}} of various cast members (with some being flanderized into [[TheDitz ditzes]] at best and [[DesignatedHero designated heroes]] at worst), occasional [[BlackComedy dark humor]], [[NightmareFuel creepy]] NauseaFuel, and overall less charm.

* ScapegoatCreator: Post-movie episode haters have multiple scapegoats: [[GrossoutShow Casey Alexander]], [[SadistShow Zeus Cervas]], [[ComedicSociopathy Derek Iversen]], Sean Charmatz and Paul Tibbit. However, some of these people have worked on the show from the beginning, and are considered better as artists than writers.

*** In turn, many fans agree that Season 9 is a major improvement on Seasons 5-8, with most of the episodes being praised.[[note]]The exceptions being "Spongebob You're Fired", "Squid Baby" and "Little Yellow Book".[[/note]] Including the ones after Hillenburg's return.
** As many people have pointed out, there's no single reason for the show's DorkAge. It was a combination of the change in staff after the show's revival, its popularity giving it immunity from the censors, and Nickelodeon ordering larger amounts of episodes due to the network's [[AdoredByTheNetwork overreliance]] on the show.
