Storyline

The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and often nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurably optimistic and earnest sea sponge, and his underwater friends. Dwelling a few fathoms beneath the tropical isle of Bikini Atoll in the sub-surface city of Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob lives in a two-story pineapple. Instead of taking the logical approach to everyday challenges, SpongeBob approaches life in a wayward and unconventional way. Whether searching for the ultimate spatula to perfect his burger flipping technique at the Krusty Krab or just hanging out with his best friend Patrick (an amiable starfish), SpongeBob's good intentions and overzealous approach to life usually create chaos in his underwater world.

Spongebob Squarepants - Used to be golden but now dirt.
28 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

Spongebob was an wonderful show. Spongebob was a naive, optismic sponge, Patrick was a dumb yet hilarious star, Mr. Krabs was a cheap krab who owned the KK, Plankton was Krabs' enemy, Sandy was the karate and Texan squirrel, and Squidward was a sarcastic squid who hated Spongebob's activities. The show was awesome and hilarious. Example:

Once upon a time, there was a ugly barnacle. He was so ugly that everyone died. The end.

Is this the KK? No, this is Patrick.

Hilarious days.

But then The Spongebob Squarepants Movie was released, and this happened:

Once upon a time, Viacom was happy with the end of Spongebob. One day, they accidentally brought Mr. Krabs to the real world, and forced them to make worser shows and continue Spongebob with worser equipment, or they would get killed.

Yeah, that is not true, but now, the show sucks.

Like if a 1-year old and Spongebob were in a crying competition, Spongebob would easily win at a crying competition.

And if Wario (TM) was to face off in a cheapness competition with Mr. Krabs, guess who would win?

Watch seasons 1-3 and the movie. Spongebob is now the worst show on Nick. Nick sealed its grave.

The show is now as bad is dirt. Find "Help Wanted" to "Spongebob Squarepants Movie". Don't watch an episode after Season 5.
