  • I had a friend who didn't want their kids to watch spongebob but I didn't question her on this just figured it was her perogative. She's all into organic food and homeschooling which are both good things but I don't understand the spongebob thing. What's wrong with spongebob? can anyone tell me?

  • See, I don't think any of those are appropriate for toddlers/pre-schoolers, especially as they're at the stage of mimicking everything they see/hear. When they're a little older and can distinguish between pretend on TV and not ok in real life...maybe...if they're interested...and it's not past their bedtime. Until then, I'd rather stick with Super Why and Dinosaur Train. :)

  • My kids don't really LIKE Sponge Bob, but if they liked it, they could watch it. lol. They like PBS kids and Disney cartoons. (Tinkerbell is their favorite)

  • Honestly, I'd rather watch Spongebob than Dora any day. Dora annoys the snot out of me. But really, I don't sensor too much. She obviously doesn't watch anything adult. I don't see the harm in Spongebob.
