A Quick Tip by BaronSamedi3

  • Dec 23, 2011
I really, really don't understand the appeal of this show. I've seen it several times but it comes off as more juvenile and obnoxious than anything. I've tried asking, but people can't seem to explain why they like it so much. It seems designed for people with short attention spans and tends to rely on humor which is more madcap than anything.

Right on, man!! Even at the age of twelve (the first and last time I saw this show), I found virtually nothing appealing in this show. Makes me glad there's Ren & Stimpy and Rocko's Modern Life to watch instead of this.

It takes more than a few episodes to actually get the hang of this one - my daughter started watching it years ago when she was little; I watched it with her and after watching it frequently I saw that there's lots to be learned from a child's point of view and once you get used to the characters it becomes appealing. We still watch it after all this time LOL. My daughter has actually learned some good lessons from Spongebob's always positive attitude. I think it's a cartoon that needs to grow on you; if you don't have a kid around to enjoy it with, I can see where some adults wouldn't like it much!

Why people think this cartoon is hilarious is beyond me. Even when watching it at the age of 12 right after its debut in 1999, I still found the humor bland and ADD-ridden. This show only makes me lunge for my Rocko DVDs much quicker.

The series' popularity has prompted the release of a media franchise, contributing to its position as Nickelodeon's highest rated show, the most distributed property of MTV Networks, and among Nicktoons' most-watched shows.

The basis for SpongeBob SquarePants was formed by Hillenburg in 1984 while teaching and studying marine biology at the Ocean Institute in Dana Point, California, where he wrote the comic strip The Intertidal Zone, which starred variousanthropomorphic forms of sea life, many of which would evolve into SpongeBob SquarePants characters. He left the institute to become an animator in 1987, and later attended the California Institute of Arts in 1992. In the institute, he made histhesis film Wormholes (1992), which led to his hiring as a director, writer, producer, storyboard artist, and executive producer of the series Rocko's Modern Life by creatorJoe Murray.
