Little, Yellow, Square...

IN THE NEWS: NH man charged 23 quadrillion dollars for smokes. Read more HERE.

Well, believe it or not but SpongeBob marks its 10th anniversary this week!

I admit it. I AM a SpongeBob fan.

In fact, there have been countless occasions when the kiddo has left the room and me and the hubby have found ourselves still watching (and enjoying) the cartoon. :)

My personal favorites?

1) The Camping Episode

2) The Selling Chocolate Door to Door Episode

3) SpongeBob Meets the Strangler

4) Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V a.k.a. Superfriends

5) and The Episode where Squidward gets fired and SpongeBob takes him in

I probably could go on. The show makes me laugh that much. The hubby and I actually quote lines to one another and crack ourselves up.

Is it educational? No.
Did I have my prechooler watching it? No. (Sesame Street and Dora were the favs then)
But now that my child is older it's pretty harmless entertainment for me--er, I mean her. :)

This weekend NICK will host Ultimate SpongeBob SpongeBash Weekend. The event airs July 17-19 and includes 50 hours of programming, including 11 SpongeBob premieres, all hosted by Patchy the Pirate. It also will include a top-10 countdown of celebrities’ favorite SpongeBob episodes, and the top-10 episodes chosen by fans at

We won't be around to catch it, but it sounds like fun.

Are you a closeted SpongeBob fan, too?

Not A SB fan, but I do LOVE Phineas and Ferb. Have you ever seen them?

Have a great weekend!

Not really familiar with SB, but I believe last time we were at Disney world we were introduced quickly to him.

Have a great weekend!

I am afraid I am not aquainted with SB :)

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy was hilarious! :)

Jessica said...

Not at all. LOL! My MIL let my four year old watch it and I wasn't happy. I just think it's for older kids.
Maybe I'm wrong? I haven't actually watched a whole episode. Do you think it's appropriate for young kids? Curious here, because my son now wants to watch it all the time.

Never actually been a fan, but the few episodes I've watched left me gasping for breath I was laughing so hard! Especially the "cussing" episode where every time someone said a cuss word, some other noise is made in the background, like a dolphin cackling or a truck horn. I laughed myself to tears!

Cindy said...

Lol, the "cussing" episode cracked me up. I love all of them, especially the ones with Plankton. Jessica, I let my daughters watch them and don't see a problem. Both my daughters are pretty young. It's better than a lot of what's out there and it's something I can watch with them as well.

I love Sponge Bob, too. The Strangler episode is also one of my favorites.

MsSnarkyPants said...

I REALLY hate to admit it...but Finn is barely one and can already say spongebob... *is very ashamed* LMAO

Trisha Pearson said...

I love Spongebob! I'm with Cindy, I really love the cussing episode and all the ones with Plankton.

It may not be educational but they created some great characters on there!

I get sick of it because my little one LOVES it! But yeah...we've caught each other singing along or laughing. I like Mermaid Man and the one where Patrick is super smart. (Can't remember why now;) I've never cringed or worried about what it's teaching...both of my kiddos have watched it. And yeah...we've been watching this weekend.

Are you feeling better?!
