I used to love Spongebob Squarepants. It used to be one of my favorite TV shows. But, much like Dan Schnider, it has overstayed its welcome. The earlier seasons, though they weren' the best in the animation department, were a goldmine of comedy that appealed to people of all ages and races. It was clever, well-thought out, and the plots made sense. The characters were also lovable and quirky. Spongebob and Patrick were endearingly annoying, and I would always root for them. Then there was the movie, which was a love letter to the series and was a great way to say goodbye to Spongebob and the citizens of Bikini Bottom. Then came Season 4 and above. Whoo boy. While S4 wasn't so bad, the later seasons were just annoying, mean-spirited, and worst of all, unfunny. Spongebob and Patrick have cease to be endearingly annoying, and are now just legitimately obnoxious and have the intelligence of rocks, Mr.Krabs is a Jerk Ass
who goes out of his way to make Plankton's life miserable, the show has almost completely forgotten about Sandy, Larry The Lobster, and Mrs. Puff, and Plankton, poor, poor Plankton. The show through's so much unfair bullshit at him that I actually WANT him to get the Krabby Patty Secret Formula. He and Squidward are actually the most likable characters in the show now. It really is a shame. Spongebob and Fairly Oddparents used to be two of the greatest shows on television. But, just like Family Guy and the Simpsons, Nick refused to let the gravy train end and both shoes are now just Flanderized shells of their former selves. I beg you Nickelodeon, please, please, kill Spongebob and Timmy. They're just not as funny as they used to be.
