The first three seasons of SpongeBob SquarePant were the greatest cartoon seasons in history.

In my opinion, the cartoon series started going downhill after that. But let’s reflect on the best of the best. Here are the Top 10 episodes from Seasons 1 through 3:

10. Graveyard Shift

“What’s tonight?” “Tuesday.” “TUESDAY NIGHT!” “But, tonight’s Tuesday night.”

9. Sailor Mouth

“AHH!” (Dolphin noises)

8. Mid-Life Crustacean

“Are you feeling it now Mr. Krabs?”

7. The Camping Episode

“It could attract a SEA-BEAR.” “A SEA-BEAR, you mean, like the ones that don’t exist!”

6. SB-129

Insert theme: The part where SpongeBob and Patrick make loud noises in prehistoric times, when Squidward is trying to play the clarinet.

5. Club Spongebob


4. Pizza Delivery

“I don’t care about the customer!” “Gasp. Squidward.”

3. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV

“Wumbology, the study of wumbo. It’s first grade SpongeBob.”

2. Chocolate with Nuts


1. Band Geeks

No quotes needed. Greatest Episode in Cartoon History.
