In the episode “I was a teenage Gary”, Squidward has to watch Gary while Spongebob is gone for the weekend. Squidward is so happy about not having to deal with Spongebob for the weekend, that he neglects Gary and completely forgets all about feeding and taking care of him.

In "Have You Seen This Snail?", a character is implied to have been eating snails -- analogous to cats.

One scene from "Your Shoe's Untied" has SpongeBob be constricted by his shoelaces, which have morphed into snakes. His surroundings slowly begin to melt as this happens.

There is an episode about a whole town getting addicted to grease, and another about being addicted to kelp juice, which could be perceived as analogous to alcohol

Two episodes, "The Splinter" and "House Fancy", are reviled by the fandom specifically for this reason, including the level of detail gone into finger and toenail injuries.

Squidward gets tortured a lot and sometimes it can actually be disturbing to watch (i.e Ink Lemonade)

Many episodes, but usually very cartoony. In "Spongebob Meets the Stranger," Spongebob steps on the Strangler's eyes with cleats causing the Strangler to scream in pain for an extended scene. Mr. Krabs sometimes detaches his eye stalks, in one episode they explode.

Nothing serious, but in the Halloween episode, Spongebob is shaved, and at the end of the episode, it is revealed Patrick shaved off all his sponginess and has his brain exposing.

"To Save a Squirrel"'s plot revolves around SpongeBob and Patrick being trapped in a cave and trying to eat the other, and I believe SpongeBob says something like "it's eat or be eaten here..."

At the end of "Slimy Dancing," a young boy is shown convulsing and drooling on the ground, and his mother panics and dials for help; however, the boy gets up and tells her that he is only practicing a new dance move called "The Cramp".

Spongebob cracks his knuckles in an episode which shows a closeup of his fingers broken off. This is done for comedic effect and isnt gruesome.

In one episode Patrick and Spongebob are fighting and wind up in their underwear. They stop fighting when they notice Spongebob has pink underwear and Patrick has yellow. Patrick states the underwear were white when he bought them, implying he peed himself. In another episode Patrick eats too much snow and needs to pee. Squidward refuses to let him in to use the bathroom so Patrick pees himself.

A villain is inducted in "tickle-therapy" to turn him good. The tickles are administered via a belt and work similarly to electro-therapy.

The hospital is a common setting in the series. The episode "The Lost Mattress" has Mr. Krabs comatose in the hospital (from losing all the money in his mattress) as a plot point. This is played for laughs.

In "Doing Time," Mrs. Puff is thrown into a padded room - solitary confinement - in a strait-jacket. She begins to hallucinate that the walls and floor are made of laughing SpongeBob faces.

"I Was a Teenage Gary" has characters get stabbed with a medicinal needle, however it doesn't look like a typical needle, instead resembling a conch shell.

As mentioned above, a bunch of bodybuilders believe they were told they have a "bubble b**t in "Bubble Buddy" and later complain about feeling fat while chewing on celery.

No, but there are some minor suicide jokes and attempts (most notably in "One Coarse Meal" and "Are You Happy Now")

The Season 7 episode One Coarse Meal uses Mr. Krabs manipulating Plankton's fear of whales as a plot point.This is played unusually seriously and Plankton is driven to madness because of this. Krabs has the tables turned on him near the end, as he is forced to face his own deathly fear -- a mime.

Spongebob has some behaviors and habits accociated with autism, and sometimes he is harmed, but only in a slapstick way

In "Wishing You Well," the characters are trapped at the bottom of a well (Squidward actually mentions his own claustrophobia, to which SpongeBob and Patrick humorously believe is a fear of Santa Claus). In "Buried in Time," the characters are briefly trapped in a cluttered time capsule. In "Truth or Square," the characters spend a good amount of time crawling through air ducts and trying to escape.

In "Pet or Pests", a stray worm goes into loud, painful labor. The actual birth is never shown, but the next time we see the worm, their babies are squirming in what seems to be afterbirth. There is no blood involved in the scene -- the afterbirth is snail slime.

There are a few dirty jokes in earlier seasons that mostly go over childrens heads, such as Spongebob wearing underwear on his head with his nose sticking out, making it look like an erection. There's also an episode where Spongebob is trying to get Gary to take a bath and he says "don't drop them" and winks while he hands Gary soap- a reference to prison rape. In addition to this the town they live in is called "Bikini Bottom" and there is a character named "Sandy Cheeks" but neither of those things are overtly sexual. Unless your child knows something they shouldn't, the show is completely safe for them to watch.

An early episode has SpongeBob refer to his bubble buddy as having a "bubble b**t" which the nearby bodybuilders take as an insult and relate the incident to other affected individuals later.

An episode revolves around whether Santa is real or not. He turns out to be real at the end, and appears occasionally throughout the series afterward.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004) serves as the ending of the series. All the episodes canonically take place before the movie, even the episodes from later seasons. The movie has a happy ending.

In the band geeks episode, the flag twirlers are seen crashing into a airplane. However, this is purely a comedic effect and the characters reappear later in the episode. A plane also crashes into a fireworks factory in one episode, and in Club spongebob a plane full of food and supplies crashes into the forest, however this just a gag and no one is seen injured.

In-universe, boats used as cars are crashed many times -- most of the crashes caused by the titular character and his terrible driving skills.

Characters occasionally bury themselves alive for various reasons -- to promote their restaurant, to prevent themselves from laughing, etc.

Some characters are unable to swim and are shown flailing in the water (or rather, goo), needing to be rescued. One episode has SpongeBob fake drowning as the set up for a ripped-pants gag. No one dies by drowning.

Squidward chokes on his clarinet in a couple episodes. A health inspector chokes on a fly and passes out in "Nasty Patty."
