I have decided to make a list of my top 50 modern Spongebob episodes, however, I will not be including any season 4 episodes as most of the episodes would probably come from there. It's also because I haven't seen many Season 4 episodes in a while. I will also be excluding season 9 episodes, as I have not seen every season 9 episode yet. Lastly, I won't be including sand castles in the sand, otherwise, it will be obvious which episode will be first.
Whilst finding these episodes, I noticed that there are actually a lot of good modern episodes between seasons 5-8. In fact, I managed to find a total of 77 good modern episodes between these seasons.
#50: Shellback Shenanigans
In this episode, Plankton disguises as Gary to help get a Krabby Patty. I though that this episode actually had quite a few laughs, likewhen the nurse said that Gary was still in the room taking tests, and the doctor replies: "That's not what I'm saying" or Plankton as Gary taking the pill. Also, it was nice to see that Spongebob actually cared about "Gary" , which is a step up from the terrible "A Pal for Gary" This episode isn't higher in the list because the plot where Plankton disguises as someone is used once again, and it is now the third time in this season where this basic plot has been used. Also, the beginning of the episode was a bit slow.
Score: 70 Pts
Next episode: Spongebob and Patrick bring the Krusty Krab to the costumers.
