BANNING SpongeBob??? **EDIT to ADD**

I was just talking to a friend and she told me that SpongeBob is not allowed in her house!

My kids watch SpongeBob all the time! 

What's wrong with the show? I never pay attention to it when it's on. I think it just looks like a silly show.

Do you allow SpongeBob in your home - or is it banned?

 

EDIT TO ADD:
I asked my 10 yr old daughter if she thought the show was inappropriate.  She said no and wanted to know why I'd think that.  I told her that a lot of moms ban the show in their homes and that they're worried about their kids acting like the characters. 

She laughed and said, "If their kids act like the characters, they shouldn't watch the show!!" 

So, maybe SpongeBob is one opportunity that moms can use to teach kids not to act like characters on tv!  Then, you don't have to worry about their behavior changing and you won't have to ban so many shows.

No SpongeBob here. I try to stay away from crude humor. With three boys they don't need any help in that department. Boys are such strange creatures! Mine are 6, 5, & 4.

I don't have a problem with it for other people. It just isn't something for our house at their age.

I think it's pretty awful.
Lots of disrespect and name calling.

But, our 6yr old watches it. He just knows better than to call me a jerk or something lol

DS is 14 and loves the show.  I know grown men that even love it, not dH thank goodness.   I have never sat down and watched an episode, no desire.  I don't encourage DS to watch the show and never buy any of the merchandising but if DS is home sick or something I don't mind him watching.  Just a little mind candy I guess to pass the time.

SpongeBob is fine. People are dramatic.

 This. And it doesn't have any educational or moral purposes.

Quoting mcginnisc: Spongebob has never been allowed in my home...I hate his voice.

I've seen it, my husband has seen it, and we both agree that it is not allowed in our home. It's a horrible show.
