  • let me know when you find out! I grew up watching Bugs Bunny.Look how violent that was! I would consider Bugs more damaging than Spongebob

  • I know, it's so stupid it''s funny. Some people don't let their kids do anything. I don't care if my kids watch it, but they really don't like it.

  • Spongebob has said the words jerk, idiot, moron, and stupid....that's why we cut it out. We have a 3 year old and 2 year old...I really don't want them going around calling other kids that. We just don't think teaches anything wholesome so we just don't allow it. But then again....I think ALL Disney movies have those words in them too. Spongebob is just for older kids in my opinion.

  • My 11 month old twins love Spongebob as well but there is alot of controversy concerning Spongebob and Patrick being Gay together i think its crazy and most children i wouldnt think would pick up on it but i have noticed in some episodes it would make you question it.. hiope this helps but my kids watch it still!!

  • I just hate it lol. I don't care if my daughter ends up liking it, so long as she doesn't watch it around me because it drives me batty and makes me want to hurl something at my TV. My personal loathing of the show and all the characters is my only issue.
