Spongebob Squarepants... where should I begin? First I want to say, I actually enjoyed this cartoon in the past. I wasn't a great cartoon, but it had charm and it was funny. But now a days, it's just one of those show you wish to go away for ever and be buried in the graveyard of the forgotten shows. Here I will show you my Top 10 reasons, why Spongebob sucks now.

5. The overhyped concept
Spongebob Squarepants is one of the most overhyped shows ever. Even the god old seasons from Steven Hillenburg are a little bit overhyped in my opinion. Their where great, but not that great. Nothing on the show was really new. The humor, the scenario, the characters, the setting. It was just a good old formula who worked again. Only this time with a talking kitchen sponge. So I ask you, why was this show such a big hit, and other shows like Roccos modern Life, Danny Phantom or Angry Beavers not?

4. Fanboys
Well... you know it all ready. The same thing ever.

3. Cheap writing
Spongebob is now at that point in his life time, that the producers take every idea and turn it to a episode. Like Waiting for a toy, or Patrick get's up or Spongebob has a splitter in his finger. Those aren't episode ideas, their just desperate ideas to make a quick episode. And the worst part is, people actually think those are good ideas. But only because it's Spongebob...  

2. the "new" Characters
The new producers actually changed every single character in the newer episodes and have no idea why people liked them in the older episodes so much:
- Spongebob for example is just annoying. The only thing that he is doing now, is just annoying people (mostly Squidward), cries and falls in love with his work at the Krusty Krab. Like that's his whole Life.
- Patrick was one of the funniest characters at the show. Now is is either a big chump or big troublemaker.
- Squidward is actually the only good thing left on the show. And you can understand why he hates Spongebob and Patrick so much because they actually ruin his whole life.
- Mr. Krabs is probably the most unlikable character now of this show. He isn't greedy anymore, his is now at a point to be a more the villain.
- Plankton on the underhand is now more liable and I tolerant him more than Krabs. But the new producers use him more as a cheap running gag to steal the krabby patty formula.
- Sandy is okay, but we rarely see her in the new show.      

1. the changed humor
This is my biggest problem I have with the newer episodes. The humor is week or just mean-spirited. Most of the jokes are not even real jokes. Or do you guys laugh ate Spongebob who is crying almost for a minute or when Squidward gets his toenail scratched off? This isn't funny, that just cruel.

IKR! I hate how they no longer view Sandy (my favorite character) as Spongebob's friend like they did in the old episodes, instead she's more like a town scientist. When did they even mention science in the old episodes? Never! Sure, she was smart, but she wasn't a scientist. Patrick I just hate him now, because he tries to be funny but he's not anymore. Why couldn't he be just like the older Patrick we all loved? He wasn't brainless, he just got confused and silly at some points, but they made sure not to overdo it. C'mon. Who will forgot "Like a weenie? Ok! MAY I TAKE UR HAT SIR? MAY I TAKE UR HAAAAAT SIR?"

Squidward, not sure what u people are talking about because he's worse than he was before. Back then, he could be pleased and sometimes nice to Spongebob. Like the Bubblestand episode when Spongebob and Patrick are cheering for him and Squidward even addresses them as friends later on. Now he's just an angry neighbor who hates Spongebob and can never be happy in his whole life.

Mr Krabs, where do I begin? Mr Krabs is now a greedy guy we all hate. Back then he was so funny and actually had a heart when it came to friends and family. For example "What have I done? I don't want this foul money! I want Spongebob back!" And if that episode was made nowadays, Mr Krabs would keep the money and let the Flying Dutchman keep his fry cook. Horrible.

So what if he were a brony? We're not here to kill people, we're here to look at art, like everyone else. Guess what? Bronies are people who like a show. Get over it please.

hahaha. wow, you got some issues you need to talk out man? don't worry, you're in a safe place here.

I never said shit about bronies, I said that these criticisms coming from a brony are ironic. you know hy they are ironic? because the show you guys like does all teh exact same thinsg this guy is complaining about in spongebob.

Personaly i don;t really care either way. I recognize these flaws in both shows, i personally don't really like either, but i can understand how other peoepl might like each show regardless of the flaws.

So how about you 'get over' your fuckin persecution syndrome and don't jump down someoen's throat next time they just call something ironic?

and since i have to spell it out, nearly every criticism that you (rightfully) gave to sponge bob can be applied to MLP.

You know..

I think they probably planned to end Spongebob after the movie, but then they got so much publicity from the movie that they couldn't stop Spongebob from ending after much more kids and families had gotten into it from the movie, excluding the fact of how popular it was before the movie.

I think Nick should have finished the show when they released the movie. After the movie, the show started to decay a little season after season, and now is just the shadow of the very good show that was.

Well past Spongebob was not one of the most hyped shows in the 90´s, Power Rangers was (despite I like the show).

Well, I still remeber the best moments of Spongebob.

It took me just until this year to realize that the episodes are so HORRIBLE now, It is so cruel, annoying, wild, and unreal now. There is a good episode of the newer ones now and then, but most of them are very sucky. All Spongebob and/or Patrick want to do to Squidward is annoy him, hurt him, or ruin his chances of EVERYTHING he dreams of! Every word you said is true. I'm thinking the creators or whatever making the show just wants to take it down, and Nickelodeon won't let them, so they're making a REASON to take it down; Mr. Krabs is selfish, Patrick is so dumb that its unbearable, Some parts of the show even make me gag! Its so cruel, just for the show's sake! Like in the latest Halloween special, Squidward get thrown out the window dressed as the "Fisherman", Patrick throws a bed, a bath, and a couple other objects on him! My dad keeps saying they've "improved", but i say they've Ex-proved! They've done it & made the show worse. I say they should either just cancel the show or make it how they used to! Good grief!

Finally it's about time someone agrees! I for one grew up with the optimistic sponge when I was younger and I try my best to watch the reruns that come on and enjoy every last hilarious, nostalgic, and clever moments I probably never got until I was older, I even realize some hilarious jokes too ha!... But I still enjoy the classic toons and all the awesome moments I still remember today. However the glory days have gone and the show is just plain horrible now...every time I talk to some idiot at school they think it is still good...WHAT!? It's not the same! Well I for one think that kids now are oblivious to whatever they watch. The writing is lazy, the characters have become one dimensional and have become over exaggerated personalities of themselves, people who do wrong don't get punished for their actions and the innocent are punished instead, and the humor ranges from being crude, mean spirited and just not even funny, and if that's what makes a cartoon good then I don't want to watch it......apparently being oblivious to mistakes is what the writers do best they can't realize when something is bad geez...well i have to admit some newer episodes improved a bit....but...it will probably never be as good as it used to be and I dread seeing the newer little abomination on television nowadays...if the writers can't write...then why write in the first place?

They even gave Squidward toenails for the sole purpose of that gag...!
I loved the older seasons, and heck, there are even 1 or 2 decent episodes from the newer seasons. But I don't really look forward to the show as much now, which is a shame, since SpongeBob was one of my childhood shows...

I think my major problem is that the new writers (And even the old writers who stayed) seem to want to scare the crap out of little kids

Such as Sponge-bob being in agonizing pain from a splinter. (The Splinter

A demonic fish trying to eat Gary (A Pal for Gary)

Vomiting worms (Pets or pests)

Snail eating old lady (Have You Seen This Snail?)

The list goes on and on.

Wow!! :wow: The Ducky so loves your insight both on MLP and Spongebob Squarepants. Yes, I never could see what the hype was with either show. I did try to watch an eppie of Spongebob and a couple of MLP, and I couldn't stand it anymore!! :rofl: I was thinking of Scroogie McDuck when he screamed OH THE TORTURE!! :rofl:

And believe me your English is perfect! English is me only langauge, and I make so many grammatical and spelling mistakes!! :rofl: :rofl: (Sorry, I was reading the other comments on this) :icondragonkekeplz: I can read a wee bit of German, but I make so many mistakes with that too :rofl: I so need the practice :rofl:

I'd like to add a sixth: The Network's annoying need to broadcast so many a day. Here in the UK, the NickToons channels is around 75-85% Spongebob now. We get other shows, but they get very little slots. (either once in the early mornings/late-nights or in the afternoons).

I've not seen any of the new stuff now, since i don't get any Nickelodeon channels and ITV ceased airing it, but i'm already sick of hearing it.

And apparently a sequel to the film is to follow. :facepalm:

A little note in case your doing more countdowns: try and work on your grammar a bit. It's a little jarring to read with there being so many.

Well idk about how to actually show you where the spelling errors and so forth are but aside from a few minor grammar problems with sentence formatting you misspelled some words and also some words are used in other meanings. For example, "there" is only used to mostly show a number of people or things while "their" is usually only used when referring to one singular noun unlike when "they're" or "they are"(referring to more than one noun). But aside from that, word of advice, try and use an artificial spellcheck just in case or review what you've typed before entering it.
