Biggest Complaint: Spongebob Squarepants

Go To

Here's the place to let the world know about something that doesn't work about this show, trope, or author. As the votes roll in, you'll be able to see if it is also a problem for other folks.

At issue:

Pretty much all episodes after the Movie are So Bad Its Good, Bittersweet Ending, or Downer Ending. It's because they change everything like changing Spongebob from a naive, down-to-earth guy to an annoying stalker (towards Squidward as a friend) and made him a bit too stupid and childish. Sometimes, Spongebob inadvertently made people's lives miserable. He also becomes a Jerk Ass later in the series; one episode shows him being completely stupid in "A Pal For Gary" where he didn't listen to the shopkeeper's warnings and yells at Gary even though he saves his sorry butt from a crazy pet. Seriously, how is making him this way funny?! It makes no sense!!!! The Patrick goes from a lovable oaf to a man with a mind of a 5-year-old, needless to say, that's the insult to 5-year-olds. Squidward goes from Jerk With A Heart Of Gold to Jerk With A Heart Of Jerk. Although, to be fair, Spongebob keeps bothering him all the time because he thought he's friends with him and everyone from Bikini Bottom treats him like he's Plankton whenever he tries to show his talents, i.e. dancing and playing his clarinet; it was called a fish flute to the locals. It's no wonder why the guy he keeps saying he's the most miserable person in Bikini Bottom, bad things keeps happening to him whenever he deserves it or not. What made you think he have no happiness memories (besides getting rid of himself from Spongebob)? Before the movie, Plankton is the antagonist because he wanted to steal the Krabby Patty's Formula so he can make more money and put Mr.Krabs out of business. Now, after the movie, you kind of feel bad for the guy because Mr. Krabs becomes more and more an antagonist than Plankton, as that greedy crab cares more about money than anything else, he even sold Spongebob's soul to the Flying Dutchman for money. Mr. Krabs also made Plankton Driven To Suicide after realizing his fears of whales so he sends Pearl to make Plankton stay away from the Krusty Krab's. He didn't even try to snap him out of it, he only cares about taking advantage his fear of whales for the fun of it. He also almost tears off someone's hand off over a penny. Just what happens to that respectable adult we once loved? Oh, don't get me started with Mrs. Puff. A few episodes show how she respects Spongebob as a student, not a train wreck and other episodes show she can't stand him because he's "unteachable" when it's comes to boating. Then, one episode shows Mrs. Puff goes out of her way to MURDER Spongebob after he accidently "popped" her skin. Sandy becomes a support character later in the series despite being one of the main characters. Yep, the world with our favorite sponge turns upside-down with people turning from sane people to crybabies who likes seeing other people gets hurt, even if it's life-threatening. Personally, I still like watching this show but they shouldn't change everything even the movie is the Grand Finale. Your results watching the Post-Movie episodes may vary.

Kamp Koral. Nickelodeon was waiting for Hillenburg to die so they can make spin-offs.
