** [=SpongeBob=] gets this sometimes. Although there are numerous post-season 3 episodes portray him as an annoying, obnoxious man-child, he can still be a nice guy, depending on the episode, yet some fans demonize him even when he doesn’t cause trouble.

** The general consensus is that Season 4[[note]]Viewers at the time were still at best 'mixed' about the show's changes and lacking quality, but it was the episode "All That Glitters" [[{{DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck}} that woke the fan-base up]] to the nose-diving decline, having the main character senselessly and ''egregiously'' debase himself for 8-9 minutes. So in other words - that ''was'' the episode.[[/note]] was when the rot kicked in, and Seasons 6 and 7 were the peak of the rot.[[note]]Most notably Season 6, with episodes like "The Splinter", "Choir Boys", "House Fancy" and "Truth or Square," although the season 7 episodes "A Pal for Gary" and "One Coarse Meal" are almost unarguably the two most hated episodes of the entire series.[[/note]] Seasons 5 and 8 are... ''mixed'' among fans. The good episodes in them are generally more well received than ones from Season 6 and 7, but the bad episodes include some of the most reviled episodes of the show.[[note]]"To Love a Patty", "Atlantis Squarepantis", "Demolition Doofus" and "Are You Happy Now?".[[/note]] 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", all of which are considered to be on the quality level of "A Pal for Gary" and "One Coarse Meal".[[/note]] Even moreso improved after Hillenburg's return later that season.

* {{Woolseyism}}: In the German dub of "Born Again Krabs", the fake name Mr. Krabs gives the Flying Dutchman is chanced from "Harold Flower" to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_the_Elephant "Benjamin Blümchen"]]; not only does this still fit the LineOfSightName nature of the English version's name (as "blümchen" means "blossom" in German), but it also doubles as an ActorAllusion, as Jürgen Kluckert, who voiced Mr. Krabs in the German dub, was also the [[TheOtherDarrin second]] voice of Benjamin.

** David Bowie's character, His Royal Highness in "Atlantis Squarepantis" is enraged when Patrick destroys the bubble for real, and leads an angry, armed mob of soldiers against the gang until Plankton tries (and fails) to kill them with a tank that shoots ice cream, and declares the "talking speck" as the new treasure. Considering how he puts up a new sign forbidding flash photography and gets rid of the amulet so [=SpongeBob=] and friends can't return, it could be said that he only picked Plankton as a treasure not because he's a CloudKukooLander, but because he didn't want any violence, and got rid of Plankton by killing two birds with two stone.

* BeamMeUpScotty: An image that spread around the internet features screenshots from the episode, "As Seen on TV" at the scene where [=SpongeBob=] is buried in the ground, leaving only his nose to be popping out. [[http://stuffpoint.com/spongebob-square-pants/image/431387-spongebob-square-pants-please-tell-me-that-is-your-nose.jpg False dialogue was added on]], with Mr. Krabs saying, "please tell me that is your nose".



** Although most fans will agree Season 6 and 7 are the worst, there’s some debate over which of the two is worse- 6 for its excessive gross-out and shock humour, or 7 for its slower, lazier writing and more jerkish character moments?

** Many fans see "Plankton's Pet" as a big ThrowTheDogABone moment for Plankton after "Plankton's Regular" and "One Coarse Meal".
*** Likewise, "Enchanted Tiki Dreams" was one for Squidward.

** After the [[InternetBackdraft immense fan backlash]] to "Summer Job" ignoring [[FanPreferredCouple Mr. Krabs' and Mrs. Puff's]] romantic relationship in "Krusty Love", the post-sequel episode "Whirlybrains" revealed the two have been dating for years, seemingly rendering "Summer Job" non-canon.
