Maybe you were under a rock (or under a pineapple?) and didn’t know SpongeBob Squarepants is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of his nautical nonsense.
I’ve tried to love it. Several times. Both kids would sit and watch it. They didn’t laugh, but they swore they loved it. Tom still sits glued to rerun after rerun.
A few years back, I heard SpongeBob compared to the PeeWee Herman Show and gave it another try. I can see that both have their pouty / happy-child ups and downs. And both shows are probably better enjoyed in an altered state. But honestly, could SpongeBob attract the star power of Pee Wee’s Christmas Extravaganza?
