Did anyone know that SpongeBob is President Obama's favourite cartoon character. I'm sure most of you read that somewhere. But anyway, I have a feeling that up until the next election SpongeBob will still be on tv if Obama likes him so much. Just a guess really.

Man what happened to this show? I agree with the majority in that it just feel apart after the first 4 seasons.
The first 4 seasons are what made me love the show so much, and made it one of my favorites.
season 4 was the last decent one imo. Not as good as the first 3 seasons, but still much better than the mess that it turned into after that.
Oh well, at least we still have the old spongebob to remember.

If the writers want to convince others that this show is not out of ideas, have an episode where Plankton builds Karen a robot body because he gets tired of her wheels squeaking while he works. She breaks up with Plankton after getting tired of his sh*t and gets a gig at the Krusty Krab doing singing.

THAT would boast ratings.

@TheLemsterPjuWhat would boast rating would be if they made an episode that
a)stays away from their pathetic repeditive 4 plots that they constantly reuse
b)has an actual story,insteed of 11 minutes of filler,and without mean spirited humor and gross out visuals
c)made Squidward and Plankton win at the end,and have Spoghebob,Patrick and Mr.Krabs sufer a painfull and humiliating defeat

But that wll never happen

For anyone who even remoatly likes new Spongebob,can you possibly sum up a total of 10 post season 4 episodes,witch are by any standars good,not just mediocer.I dont think you can.
said at 9:01 AM on Sat Jan 25 2014

I could name at least 20 or more that I really liked, but you'd say they're probably mediocre anyway.
said at 7:26 AM on Sun Jan 26 2014
@DVJ Sand Castles in the Sand, Fear of a Krabby Patty, Selling Out, Sing a Song of Patrick, Mermaid Man: The Motion Picture, Plankton vs. Krabs, Best Frenemies, Ghost Host, Chimps Ahoy, and Two Faces of Squidward.

@SpongeBat1 I meant from season 5 and onward,i do agree that the first half od season 4 has its share of decent episodes,but theres literaly no good episodes in my opinion after season 4,other than maybe Frozen face off

I'm convinced that the grotesqueness in the newer episodes of Spongebob are making the Triplets of Belleville AND Pink Floyd's The Wall look like Dora the Explorer and Blue's Clues. But maybe I'm overexaggerating this statement a little bit.

@DreamMaster08X I don't think I've watched a current episode of this in years, but the way you just put that what kinda scares me. 0_0

@PsychicVoiceSpy I've seen many clips of the new episodes, along with a few full episodes themselves, and trust me when I say that I've had more thean my fair share of it.

@DreamMaster08X I genuanlly wonder how the hell some of the aformentioned gross out scenes got pass the censors particulary the tow nail scene from House Fancy and Spongebobs swollen ,puss dripping,bloody vain thumb in the Splinter
said at 9:05 AM on Sat Jan 25 2014

Triplets of Belleville wasn't really gross. The artstyle was rather unsettling to look at.

Later in the movie there's a frontward shot with the biker guy's HUGE nose, with his heavily detailed eyes starring at you while sounded by what appear to be ghouls.

I haven't seen the movie in a long time to be honest. I could be wrong on the details.

@TheLemsterPju I'm not comparing by grossness: I'm comparing by grotesqueness (and surreality). Quite frankly, the grossness of the newer Spongebob episodes make it fall into the grotesque category for me.
said at 9:23 AM on Sat Jan 25 2014
@DreamMaster08X Ah I see.

If that's the case I'd throw in Le Roi et l'oiseau and Xavier Renegade Angel as comparisons. Though I wouldn't say current-Spongebob is not anywhere NEAR as grotesque as XRA's most normal episodes.

If Bill Fagerbakke ever decides not to voice Patrick anymore (which will never happen) then they should get Oliver Wyman using his Big voice.
said at 9:18 AM on Sat Jan 4 2014
@Ross123 Wymans Big voce wouldnt suit Patrick at all,and most of the cast would never leave considering that a majority of them practically make a living from vocing this characters,aside from Tom Kenny and Clancy Brown who are of course high profile voice actors,but the rest are complet unknowns.

I always was curious about who would they get as replacemeants,if the original cast lefts.
said at 10:19 AM on Sat Jan 4 2014
@DVJ I did say that the cast leaving would never happen, it was in bracts. I was thinking up something & Big's voice got in my head at the time so I then thought that they sound quite similar (in my opinion).

Why do you think Wyman wouldn't be good at voicing Patrick? If you don't mind me asking.
said at 3:14 PM on Thu Nov 21 2013
As of Spongebob You're Fired I agree it's gone downhill. Getting fired so Mr. Krabs can save money? Really? I like the Planton episodes still since he's my favorite and did enjoy the Mermaid Man episodes RIP.

I disagree that SpongeBob is boring nowadays. Well let's be honest SpongeBob did torture Squidward from time to time in the older episodes & unlike most of you, I think torturing Squidward is quite entertaining (even if SpongeBob is acting gay towards him).

Also SpongeBob was silly & quite serious in older episodes while nowadays he's completely stupid but it's still pretty funny to watch really.

Patrick was always stupid really & Mr. Krabs was always cheap.

Sandy I do agree has lost her action side but her science side is slightly amusing from time to time.

The point being is that new episodes don't feel any different from the older ones (besides the animation) for me that is. I don't see much of a difference other than the fact the characters over react more & SpongeBob is brain dead. It's all pretty much the same so I don't see how it's completely awful.

Look I know you all miss Stephen Hilenburg as creator but he wanted to leave & I respect his choices. Just accept it & move on. Paul Tibbit isn't that bad a writer really.

@Ross123 The difference between the old and new episodes is that not only have they REEEAAALLY overplayed on grotesque and violent imagery (for KIDS, nonetheless!), but they have also overplayed the the traits of the characters that you've just mentioned to an extent to where the characters themselves have become wildly intolerable.

Squidward and Spongebob's feuds in past episodes never resorted to Spongebob physically injuring Squidward in such a disturbing manner.

Patrick has become senseless to the point of irritation, to which you cannot believe that he could become even more senseless.

Mr. Krabs is now such a greedy tool (pardon my French).

I haven't seen any recent episodes with Sandy, so I can't really say anything about her. She might be okay, but what post-movie episodes I've seen of her, she's not that much fun anymore.
said at 9:41 AM on Tue Dec 24 2013
@DreamMaster08X Well, at least I still enjoy it even if others don't. It my be childish & all but it still makes me laugh. Unlike a lot of people, I have learned to accept SpongeBob for what he is nowadays.

@Ross123 I guess I should say more power to you. But you're going to have to realize that you are in a SMALL minority of 'acceptance' that you are not going to understand your view, let alone change their own view of it. I understand (partially), but I might be the only one.

But IF I may plea: just please do not ever show your future child[ren] this (at least the new episodes), as I am afraid that they may be needlessly scarred by it one way or another.

The newer episodes are just a plain and simple cash grab.They only goal is to get stupid little children to watch it by over exposing it

The new episodes completly lack the heart and passion,that Stephen Hilenburg and the original crew put it the old.Just watching one episode you can see that the writers put no effort to entertain anyone one over the age of 8.

The new episodes dont even have a plot,and are just a bunh of mean spirited humor,idiotic humor,gros out visuals and annoying characters trown into a blender and then spiled over a story board.

When it actually has a plot its very predicteble,repedetive and formulatic

1.Spongebob works at the krusty krab
2.Squidward or Mrs.Puff is going trough hell,courtesy of SPONGEBOB
3.Mr.Krabs tries some dickish scam to get an extra buck
4.Plankton tries and fails to steal the krabby patty formula
5.Patrick is being an obnoxious douchebag

And dont get me started on the characters.Al of them sufferd severe flanderazacion since season 4.

Spongebob has become a delusional,creepy
maniac with a stalkerish gay crush on squidward

Patrick is now a braindead,smug and imensly unlikeble *******

Mr.Krabs has become satan with a money fetish

Plankton is now just a whiny,pathetic crybaby

Sandy became bland and boring,and trew away her old action girl trait to became a dull scientist.

Mr.Puff has been driven into insanity by spongebob

Squidward has become the only simpathetic character,whos only purpose is to go trough several kinds of hell onlt to get kicked in the junk in the end,to ad insult to injuri.Poor Squidward.

Overall spongebob has now became just another money grabbing hore of a cartoon,and a true insult to once great show.This just proves you that no one now a days puts any pasion into cartton,and only uses them to profit him self and reduce the inteligence of the children watching it.We live in corrupted world,and that just sicens me.

**** you Paul Tibbit!!!!!

@Xymor I think SpongeBob & Patrick might be in a gay relationship because of the way they act around each other.
said at 8:51 AM on Mon Nov 4 2013
@Xymor He should indeed listen to who we've been rooting for for the past ten years, yes.

I think it's become really nasty over the years, although there are still a few decent ones.

I remember going to my Grandpa's House, when I lived down south before i moved, I to watch SpongeBob, Fairly Oddparents, and other shows that were on Nickaloaden and Nicktoons Network. I loved seasons 1-3, and I thought season 4 was OK, but afterwards SpongeBob became stupid and boring with Gross-Outs, Squidward Torture Fests, or just strange.

I sorta like the more rounded "uncanny valley"ish art designs they gave the characters in the later seasons. I always thought the old style was weird to look at (don't get me started on season one's artstyle).

SpongeBob was such a funny and witty show in its early years. Too bad its lost its edge. It's becoming increasingly for little kids only. I pity the voice actors for be forced to stick with the show all these years. Hopefully they're getting paid well enough for their efforts. In the words of Mrs. Puff, "Oh SpongeBob, Why?!"
said at 4:29 PM on Tue Dec 25 2012
@Darth Bugs And when it's not appealing to little kids, it's being disgusting.
