Too many parameters

  SpongeBob: Infection is a spin-off of the series SpongeBob SquarePants by JellyfishJam38. The show follows SpongeBob and the gang attempting to live in a zombie-infested town. Each episode is 42-46 minutes long. It is also a lot more bloody and violent than most SpongeBob spin-offs, and has had several complaints about its TV-14 rating. Each season contains 13 episodes.

The pilot episode, Virus, was planned to be released, fully made, on the Exhilaration Animation YouTube channel, but it was never released.

Season 1

Virus - Written by JellyfishJam38


Bikini Atoll is struck by an epidemic and people start to act strangely, while an organization tries to prove that the disease is nothing but a flu. With the help of Sandy's investigation, the gang disprove the skeptics, and realize that their city will never be the same again. The next day, the gang goes into town and find out that everybody has turned into zombies. The gang accepts their fate, but Patrick tells them that if they die, they must die heroes. And so begins the Infection saga! (TV-14-DLSV)

Survivors - Written by JellyfishJam38


While searching frantically for a zombie-free area, the gang find an underground shelter where many surviving Bikini Bottomites are hiding from the zombies. While in there, they learn how to kill a zombie. But a tornado hits Bikini Bottom and the shelter swoops overground. The zombies see it and gradually smash through the metal. When they get in, SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, Krabs and Squidward use their newfound knowledge of zombie-killing to destroy them, but there are too many, so the survivors begin to get picked off one by one. Will the gang be next? (TV-14-DLV)

Missing - Written by JellyfishJam38


Sandy mysteriously disappears one night, so SpongeBob uses Patrick to extract information from the zombies. All fails, until Patrick finds a wet, terribly-written ransom note inside a dead zombie's mouth. Further investigation of the note states that Sandy has been kidnapped by the zombies, who are willing to make a sacrifice to the "Zombie King". Can the rest of the gang crash the zombies' sick, twisted party, or will it be too late? (TV-14-DLSV)

Savior - Written by Team Seedrian Games 2.0


After rescuing Sandy from the zombie sacrifice, a lobster named Larry offers to take them to a safe-haven. They trust him, especially after being so heroic against the zombies. However, Mr. Krabs doesn't quite trust him, and believes that they are being led into a trap. (TV-PG-DLSV)

Note: This episode was formerly rated TV-PG, but after complaints relating to the moderate violence and sexual themes in the episode, it was re-rated TV-14.

Unsafe - Written by JellyfishJam38


Upon further exploration of the non-infected zone, the gang find that the surviving citizens from episode 2 live there. But when one of the residents dies in a bloody freak accident, the zombies smell the blood and begin to flock across the so-called safe haven. Larry is bitten and Squidward stays behind to keep him happy before his death, while the rest of the town are stranded in a remote area of the town. Mr. Krabs was right! (TV-14-DLV)

Stranded - Written by Team Seedrian Games 2.0


The mishap with Larry has left the gang stranded in the middle of a kelp jungle. They have to forage with what little supplies that they've got in order to make it through. However, Squidward suddenly gets paranoid of everyone, and fears that they will all perish. The insanity is starting to corrupt the team, as they may lead to their own demise. (TV-14-LSV)

Searching - Written by William Leonard


Squidward has left the camp in the middle of the night, believing that he will find his way out faster alone. SpongeBob tries to get the gang to agree with him that Squidward needs to be found, but everybody else disagrees. SpongeBob then leaves the camp himself to search for Squidward, leaving the rest alone. Suddenly an ambush by a group of zombies breaks the gang up, and they have to find a way to re-unite each other, while also searching for a way to get out of the kelp jungle. (TV-14-DLV)

Hypochondria - Written by William Leonard


The gang have come back together again, but there is a problem. Patrick has been lying on the floor for hours while clutching his arm, claiming that he was infected by a zombie when the gang split up. Sandy examines the arm and says that he is okay, but Patrick says otherwise and refuses to move. Nobody can leave without leaving Patrick behind, so they have to find a way to get him walking again. Can they do that and keep themselves alive at the same time? And is there really some truth to what Patrick says? (TV-14-DLV)

Voracious - Written by SpongeKing


After eating some weird food, Patrick turns on Squidward and prepares to kill him. Sandy studies the food, and reveals that it is a drug that will kill Patrick in 24 hours. The team manages to stop Patrick, knocking him out. Just then the drug takes over him, flinging him into a murderous rage. (TV-14-DLSV)

Dutchman - Written by Spongeyfan77/JellyfishJam38


The hunt for shelter is getting steadily more difficult per second, as the gang find that mainly all potential safe-havens have been inhabited by gangs of rabid zombies. In their desperation, they decide to take shelter in an ancient ship, which they soon discover belongs to the Flying Dutchman, who at first seems rather benign for a ghost, and not much worse than his personality in the original SpongeBob series. However, SpongeBob realizes that the Infection's stress has corrupted him and changed his normal scary pranks into acts of true evil. This fact is confirmed when in a spell of insanity, the gang are tied up and covered with zombie bait, which inevitably attracts zombies. During this long fight, SpongeBob is scratched by a zombie's claws. Could this mean that SpongeBob is soon to join the Infected's ranks? (TV-14-DLSV)

Slayers - Written by Chrisvader1234

SpongeBob has seemingly been infected by a large group of zombies whose sole mission is to find and eat the final survivors of their kind. The gang flees, knowing that if they try to save SpongeBob, they could get captured and infected. While fleeing from the zombies, they encounter a group of survivors known as the Slayers, who are trying to gather an army to resist the zombie forces. But are they friends or do they think the gang is food? (TV-14-DLV)


Vivisection - Written by JellyfishJam38

The gang join the Slayers after proving their worth to them, but for some reason, Mr. Krabs outright refuses to join, and disbands from the gang now that they've "sold their souls to pure evil". The team pass this off as the ravings of a man who's gone feral, but Squidward uncovers a dark secret about them: they are cruelly experimenting on fish to try to find a cure for the zombie virus. However, the rest of the gang have poured their hearts and trust into the work of the Slayers, and again do not believe his words. Because of this, it's not long before the gang, bar Krabs and Squidward, are chained up and made into test subjects. It's up to the two to save the crew, before they end up dead or insane. (TV-14-DLSV)


Chaos - Written by JellyfishJam38 (Season Finale)


On the run from the sadistic Slayers and the bloodthirsty zombies, the crew meet up in the Chum Bucket, where they find a traumatized, mentally ill Sheldon Plankton, who has turned to the good side after losing his family and false power. He joins their group, but the gang now have another responsibility: to control Plankton's mental breakdowns and to stop him from committing suicide. Meanwhile, a prophesy is uncovered that states that complete chaos is about to fall on Bikini Atoll, and that only seven people united can bring light to the darkness. As a zombie army grows nearer, and the Slayers' status begins to be respected among the rubble of Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob and Sandy are tasked to find the seventh person. Who are they? Will they all survive in time for the battle? Was the prophesy a fluke? (TV-14-DLV)

Season 2

The Black Plague - Written by RamDarre


The Black Plague has begun to infect the area. Not only are people being infected, but a new hybrid of zombies has formed. They are stronger and more man hungry. Also, there are kill switches on the plague which make them become zombies, so you never know when someone is infected. Can the gang somehow overcome this awful plague? Is there a cure? Will the gang end because of this? Find out in the episode, "The Black Plague". (TV-14-LSV)

Bon Appetit - Written by JellyfishJam38


Plankton begins to notice strange lumps on his skin, the telltale signs of the Black Plague. But, the weird thing about it is that he has not been immediately infected yet, which should have happened. At the same time as this, another breed of zombie infests Bikini Bottom, the muscular, mutated 'Forsaken', which Plankton could soon be among the ranks of. So what will Plankton become, a Plagued, a Forsaken, or something completely different? (TV-14-LV)

Search and Destroy - Written by JellyfishJam38


After a scientific reading on recovered corpses of Plagued and Forsaken zombies, Sandy discovers that by killing the underground-dwelling, strength-balancing zombie nicknamed the 'Zombie King', they have removed the sense of control in the zombies' mutations, allowing them to mutate at free will without being in the King's proximity. Believing that their hard work and sacrifices during the battle have gone to waste, Patrick and Squidward storm off from the gang together in the heat of the moment, while Sandy and SpongeBob make it their mission to capture more zombies to further investigate their mutations. Meanwhile, Plankton tries to fight off the ever-growing infection inside of him... (TV-14-DLSV)

Degrees of Separation - Written by JellyfishJam38


During an autopsy on a new breed of zombie, another member of the breed ambushes the gang, which causes them to split up and run different ways. Each member of the gang's day is chronicled in a time-bending format; Mr. Krabs, who is looking to redeem himself to Pearl, wards her off from the menace, but is yet again ambushed and has her taken away from him by a zombie, her whereabouts unknown. Depressed and trying to forget his troubles, he takes an alcohol and drug-fueled expedition through the underbelly of New Bikini Bottom, where he inadvertently uncovers dark secrets about Bikini Bottom's populace. Patrick stumbles upon the Nightcallers' hideout and is persuaded into joining, although he finds not before long that the cult is in the name of evil. SpongeBob and Sandy board themselves up in an abandoned hotel, and attempt to make the most of their relationship with each other, as the hours take their toll on the two's nerves. Squidward stays behind and extracts information from the gradually-transforming Plankton, getting a disturbing insight into his diseased psyche, as he starts to pose more and more of a threat. (TV-MA-V)

Note: This is the first episode rated TV-MA due to the drug content in Mr. Krabs' story, and the disturbing images in the general episode. It is also significantly longer than most episodes, and is considered a special by many.

Making it Happen - Written by JellyfishJam38, inspired by SpongeKing


SpongeBob, Sandy, Squidward and Plankton have come back together by chance, and form a search party in order to find the missing members of the gang. While searching the outskirts of Bikini Bottom for possible leads about the lost three's locations, a mysterious and seedy drug-dealer informs them that the Nightcallers have been linked to many recent disappearances in the location, and that they should pursue them for more details. Upon infiltration of the Nightcallers' hideout, they find Krabs, who was kidnapped at the end of the previous episode, Patrick... and Pearl. Despite the reunion of the crew, there are many complications abound - Patrick is shell-shocked and refusing to communicate, Plankton has now fully deteriorated, and the Nightcallers are becoming a threat the likes of which they've never seen before. (TV-14-DLSV)

Beckoning - Written by JellyfishJam38


After Mr. Krabs and Plankton are discovered making a joint suicide attempt by Sandy, she starts a rally group of survivors to make an effort to increase the quality of life in Bikini Bottom, so they can decrease the likelihood of deaths by suicide, starvation, or zombie attack. Squidward shuns her and her group for holding on to false ideals, but she is determined to fight for a better future no matter the cost, even if it means becoming something she's not. (TV-14-DLSV)

One in a Million - Written by JellyfishJam38


Sandy, SpongeBob, Patrick, Pearl and the rest of the rally group are besieged by a horde of zombies while recruiting people to join their cause, and find solitude in the Bikini Bottom government building. Patrick guards the exterior of the building and wards off the zombies, while the others plan their amendments to the state of disorder Bikini Bottom is in. Meanwhile, Squidward and Mr. Krabs are stalked by a mutated zombie that heals its wounds and regrows body parts within seconds, and are stuck on how to kill it without it regenerating. (TV-MA-V)

Note: The first episode rated 18 by the BBFC, for "strong gory horror". This relates to the gore involving the regenerating zombie in the subplot.
