I gave you one link with multiple links to NICK's own website see rule 1 about Official Sources.

Preferred Sources
Official Websites* - The official listing for a series in its country of origin. Unless the listing is a god awful mess or conflicts with an existing site rule such as splitting of multipart episodes in animated series or aired ordering actually differs, the official listing will be considered gospel. No matter what the scene thinks.

Last time this happened with Spongebob, we had to wait until 10 episodes were out before someone actually did anything about it.

All of the Spongebob SquarePants episodes are named wrong. The names are on the wrong episodes. For example, TVDB says that Season 7 Episode 1 is "Shell Shocked" but that's actually the name of Season 6 Episode 31. The show is locked at the series level so I can't edit the names. This was mentioned (and responded to) in 2014 and it still hasn't been fixed

Here is a list of the correct names https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... li=1#gid=0

I've got a number of episodes that I don't know what to name because the titles that are identified in the video, are not even in the list.
Someone needs to overhaul this series with correct data.

Someone needs to overhaul the corrections with acceptable sources, then we'll talk.

I've just gotten new episodes; they're not on TheTVDB; http://spongebob.wikia.com/wiki/Two_Thumbs_Down and http://spongebob.wikia.com/wiki/Mall_Girl_Pearl
I don't envy the person who volunteers to reorganise the tv episodes. Then again, once that's done I have to reorganise my own collection!
