My kids watch SpongeBob all the time, and they are very well behaved and have no problems with their school work. I actually like the cartoon and laugh when watching it. I also get a good laugh at liberals and so called experts on issues.
Don't let articles like the one above scare you parents into not letting your kids watch cartoons. SpongeBob is a great cartoon for kids. I would steer kids away from cartoons like Simpsons and Family guy. Those are bad for kids, and for people in general.
