    it's pretty much what's going on at my college now. alot of people my age or those older than me watched the show until the 2005 episodes came along and they were MAD. i too, was once a fan. the show was so original for its time, but when the movie came along, i guess the writers just ran out of ideas. now i barely even chuckle when i watch the new episodes. it's like the show has gone to the level of mediocrity with those new shows like camp lazlo, or foster's home for imaginary friends

          I watched a few episodes and found it midly amusing but I gave up on it fast.

          The guy who does the voice of Spongebob used to be on the HBO sketch show Mr. Show.

          And at least the show has been turning kids on to good music, Pantera, The Flaming Lips, Ween and Motorhead have done music for the show and movie.

            The only reason everyone hates SpongeBob is becuase he is endlessly PIMPED by Nickelodeon's head honchos. It's all thanks to the fact that SpongeBob comes on "50 times a day", as someone said in a "Nick sucks" thread.

              No I hate Spongebob because the jokes are lame, the plotlines suck, and the animation isnt that great.

                  I like it. It's the random-ness really that I like about it. The current episodes now have sort or lost it's edge ever since the guy who created it( Who was a writer for Rocko's Modern Life) stopped writing regularly. Spongebob has had a few good episodes though. Like the superbowl rock episode( My favorite) It even get's pretty dark and twisted at times( Like the episode where they think the Helth Inspector in the Krusty Krab is a fake so they trick him into eating a bad hambuger. Then when they think they killed him( Becouse a fly flew into his mouth before he took a bite) they try and go bury the body in the cemetary. No wonder why this is ICP's favorite show. But to put it simplily yes it has lost it's charm. I wouldn't call it luster becouse I do not Lust for Spongebob. And I hope none of you do either...LOL.

                    Duh. It's been on for nearly ten years already (counting the May 1999 sneak peek).

                            There are quite a few episodes of Spongebob that are actually really funny, my favorite being Sailor Mouth, in which Spongebob and Patrick discover "bad words". Hilarity ensues.

                            However, I've seen quite a few shitty episodes as well. It's just like any long-running show: usually there's some merit to be found in it at some point, but it should have been put to rest a long time ago. It also doesn't help that the network keeps promoting it like it's the end-all be-all of cartoons.

                                Yeah, I was nevver a big fan of Spongebob either, but I will have to admit that he was quite popular for a stretch in my high school.

                                  i dont watch it alot so i can honestly say it doesnt bother me, when i do see it i like it, it's not my first choice or anything but i do think it's cute that hes got a job and hes an inanimate(spelling?) object and how he deals with adult things such as driving and working etc. It doesnt take alot for me to hate a cartoon but i guess it's sorta like certain radio stations that play crappy songs over and over again it gets old after a while? I dont listen to the radio alot either so like spongebob neither of those things bother me. I do however dislike the cartoon Fairly Odd Parents for all the same reasons you guys hate spongebob. Overall though i never watch anything really except vh1 or nick at night sitcoms or the news, iam a computer person over the T.V. any day and actually i prefer dvds to t.v. blah blah blah ya i know i to long mabey? heh

                                        There was only one thing on Spongebob that ever made me laugh. In one of the first episodes, they're blowing bubbles and spongebob blows what is obviously an elephant-shaped bubble. Patrick goes "hahaha, its a giraffee!!!"
                                        That cracked me up.

                                        I know a fully grown man who had his bathroom completely spongebob'ed. Spongebob shower curtain, wallpaper, toothbrush holders...everything. Its really pitiful.
