If you're unfamiliar with SpongeBob SquarePants, it's about this cute little guy who lives under the sea, works as a burger flipper and has friends that are such creatures as a starfish, a squid and a squirrel. He chases jellyfish for fun, has a pet snail that meows and has a laugh the will drive you crazy.
SpongeBob is one of the rare cartoons that I actually don't mind watching with my kids. In fact, I occasionally watched it BEFORE I had kids. I think the writing is extremely witty at times. Although, don't even get me started on how it irks me when parents demonize the show and think it destroys their children's fragile minds... I could write a book on my rebuttals to this.
