1. I have absolutely no idea why anybody watches Spongebob at all. 2. I don't think it's for the younger people. Lots of people may say differently, but I say it'll turn your brain to mush if your too young, and I've never said that about any other shows. But that's just my quick opinion. It's not BAD for kids, but I think it's brain-mushifier, if that's a word.
