Sponge Bob Square Pants

Mama's Losin' It

This is a show if the I have never, ever figured out. What is the appeal of a sponge in pants running around with a bunch of sea creatures. I might be able to get it if they imitated a true sea sponge, but using a typical kitchen sponge, no I just don't get it. When it first came out my kids were a little to old to feel the kids appeal for the program although they did find it appealing from a teenager point of view, but our lives were to full for them to develop an attatchment to the program. Then I had my fourth child. I was able to keep her away form the inanity of the show for a while, but then she really got into tv and found the sponge. I was forced to observe the  insanity for a short time, but then I heard and saw things that I didn't approve of as a parent for my child to be watching. She was doing things that I didn't approve of. I banned the show. Whew saved from the silly sponge. If he continues in popularity, I'm sure someday I will have to face him again, but for now as long as I have ultimate control of the remote, he will not influence my daughter in ways that I don't approve of. And hopefully in that time she will come to appreciate my dislike and develop her own dislike or at least a better judgement system.


  1. it took forever before I would let my daughter watch Spongebob too.

    Stopping in from Mama Kat's.

  2. Ugh. I hate the Sponge Bob. My brother-in-law bought the whole first season in video for my daughter, so she watched it for a bit. Then I slowly started to hide them away. I've been saved from screening further presents from my BIL because now he has kids. I always think the best defense is some good revenge.

  3. Sad that cartoons are no longer safe.

  4. I almost chose this show to write about for my prompt today. It's so unreal the appeal and hold it has over the majority of kids these days. I never understood the appeal of it, even from the very beginning of it's being aired.

    Thank goodness my kids prefer "Tom and Jerry" and good ol' Scooby Doo!
