The main thing I love about Spongebob is the facial expressions of the characters. I think these hilarious expressions are funny for kids and adults, and perhaps funnier for adults, which is partially why so many adults love Spongebob. I like it more now, at 22, than I did at 9, when it first came out.
So here’s my top ten list of Spongebob facial expressions!
10.) The Tiny Eyes- In the episode where Spongebob needs to learn how to tie his shoes, the Flying Dutchman offers his help, but first tells Spongebob not to stare at him with those “big ol’ eyes”. As a result Spongebob’s eyes shrink, creating this hilarious expression.
9.) The Why Aren’t I Cool Look- At the beach, Spongebob wonders why he isn’t a cool lifeguard, and that thought gives birth to this screenshot.
8.) The I Love You Face- When Patrick is trying to sell candy bars to neighbors, he hears that the way to get the sale is to make his customers feel special. He does this by showing up at a guy’s door and just saying “I love you”. His one tooth morphs into many tiny teeth, and it’s hilarious.
7.) The Good For Your Soul Face- In the episode, “Just One Bite”, Spongebob insists to Squidward that Krabby patties are “good for your soul”. And then he turns into an angel and makes this face.
6.) The Shocked Patrick- In the Spongebob Squarepants Movie, Patrick and Spongebob become shocked for some reason. Patrick’s face is just too funny.
5.) The Sneaky Face- Spongebob realizes Squidward likes Krabby Patties in the episode, “Just One Bite”. When he catches Squidward in the act of seeking out Krabby Patties, he responds by making this face.
4.) The Eager Face- In the episode “Band Geeks”, Spongebob becomes quite excited about the band that Squidward has brought together. Squidward’s nemesis, Squilliam, says, “This is exactly how I imagined your band would look”, motioning toward Spongebob’s “eager face”.
3.) Insane Squidward- In the episode, “Squid’s Day Off” Squidward goes nuts when he keeps imagining that Spongebob is trying to destroy the Krusty Krab while he’s away, pretending to be doing errands while actually attempting a day of “relaxation”. Also, one of the best episodes ever.
2.) Spongebob in Disbelief- In the episode where Mr. Krabs and Plankton switch places for a day, Plankton tells Spongebob that he has used too much sauce. Spongebob begins to convulse and his face completely transforms, as this is probably the first time he has received constructive criticism at work.
1.) Squidward’s Unsure Face- The episode, “Just One Bite” has now monopolized this list, but I don’t care. Squidward’s “Unsure Face” has got to be number one. When Spongebob asks him if he is sure he doesn’t want a Krabby patty, Squidward says, “Does this face look unsure to you?” and it cuts to this amazing image.
