List Rules Vote up the grossest closeups from 'SpongeBob SquarePants.'

While it's known for having some of the funniest and wackiest characters on television, Spongebob Squarepants is also infamous for its unsettling close-ups meant to drive home a particular point. The inspiration for these shots might have come from previous titles like John Kricfalusi's The Ren & Stimpy Show, which knew how to creep out its viewers with extreme zooms. SpongeBob, however, took it a step further.

Most SpongeBob SquarePants close-ups aren't all that disturbing, which is why the gross close-ups in SpongeBob are particularly memorable. There are countless examples of these zoomed in shots, many of which have become SpongeBob memes, but these are the absolute worst zoomed in SpongeBob moments over the course of the show's long history.
