What can I say that hasn’t already been said about Spongebob? The first three seasons of this show defined my childhood, and I lowkey feel bad for all of the kids whose parents didn’t allow them to watch it. Whenever a fellow third grader looked me in the eyes and told me they did not know the Ripped Pants song, it broke my heart. When I was a kid, I assumed some parents banned the show because the voices were grating. That was the reason my mom hated The Fairly Odd Parents. Now I realize that parents hated the hidden adult references and jokes within Spongebob, which I understand…sort of. SpongeBob is one of those rare shows that parents and their kids can enjoy because the humor appeals to everybody. It doesn’t dumb itself down for kids, which is why I’ll be watching SpongeBob with my future children.
