250px-SpongeBob S6

During Seasons 6 to Season 8, SpongeBob SquarePants experienced a massive decline in quality from 2008 to 2012.

Bad Qualities

  1. The characters have been flanderized badly, some of them even becoming flat-out unlikable (like Patrick and Mr. Krabs).
  2. A lot of bad episodes, to the point the episodes that had their individual pages on this wiki once cluttered this wiki.
  3. Most of the bad episodes are either mean-spirited, incredibly stupid, gross/disturbing, or just boring.

Examples of Bad Episodes from These Seasons:

Season 6

  • "The Splinter"
