SpongeBob SquarePants

Posted on


(Nickelodeon) In this animated TV series, the ever-optimistic and upbeat SpongeBob SquarePants lives in a pineapple under the sea in Bikini Bottom. For a period of time, SpongeBob SquarePants was one of the best-written comedies on television. Not among children?s entertainment, not among cartoons, but comedies, period full stop. SpongeBob, like Pee-Wee Herman before him, proved that ”family friendly” can be delightfully subversive, and the show is shot through with moments of animated creativity equal to that of Chuck Jones or Tex Avery and tied together with a streak of sublime absurdity to match Monty Python.
