Some of terrible Spongebob's episodes during Season 4, 5, 6, *aka the infamous seasons) would've made for a pretty great horror parody of Spongebob. Episodes I had in mind: "To Love a Patty" Spongebob horrifically rips clams apart over a rotting Krabby Patty. "Skill Crane": Mr. Krabs exploits gambling addicts and the episode overall paints a weirdly mature and uncomfortably too-close-to-home picture of addiction. "Gone" has Spongebob going into psychological breakdown for finding no one around for extended amounts of time. "One Coarse Meal" is just thoroughly messed up as Plankton contemplates suicide. "Squid's Visit" dials up Spongebob's creepiness to 11 and there's real psychological horror elements that that does feel genuinely horrifying at points. IMO they could've made for good, memorable episodes if they weren't part of, y'know, Spongebob.
