So I've been living with my MIL and she thinks that Spongebob for my 3 year old is perfectly fine. Though I have asked her nicely not to let him watch it.

Study's have shown that Spongebob can cause children to become stupid.

I let my child watch TV, only ones that are edicational.

What do you think about letting your child(ren) watch Spongebob?

Spongebob is a horrible show..my son learned the word idiot from that show..I agree with you and I really don't like my son watching the show, but seriously it is really hard to find decent cartoons for kids these days

My DD, and my nieces and nephews all watch Spongebob, and none of them are anywhere near stupid. In fact I think my daughter has calmed down some since she has gotten into Spongebob. She has ADHD and when she watches Spongebob she actually calms down and watches. I will even watch it with her sometimes because I actually find it humorous.

Don't leave out Cat dog or whatever it is...half cat and a dog on the other end...wth??? My kids don't watch Sponge bob and it's their choice...But I was never allowed to watch Ren and Stimpy nor Bevis and Butthead!

Quoting AleaKat:

You've got to be kidding!
We grew up in a world of Ren and stimpy, rockos modern life and bevis and butthead....

Spongebob is not gonna make your kid dumb. So sick of parents blaming media for their kids shortcomings.
My kids watch spongebob all the time and are both a grade level ahead of their ages.

Studies have shown that 100% of stupid people breathe oxygen. 

SpongeBob in moderation is not going to lower your child's intelligence.

My girls love Spongebob, and they are nowhere near "stupid".  Got any of these studies to show us to back up your information, OP?
