Not That Bad

A Spongebob Christmas, while being shallow in the story department is entertaining and jolly, such as the season itself. The stop-motion animation I personally loved, even though it's foreign to the world of Bikini Bottom. The plot is simple, Plankton has been giving out tainted fruit cake (with the help of unaware Spongebob) that transforms people into jerks and strips them of the joy of Christmas. Of course it's up to Spongebob and the gang to remind Bikini Bottom that during the holidays (or any time) you shouldn't be a "jerk" to others. This special is a great treat for the family to watch as they wind down into the holiday season. What should other families know about this?: Positive Messages: Don't be mean to others. Positive Role Models: Spongebob will do anything to spread holiday cheer. Violence: Plankton's invention, Spongbot tries to destroy Christmas and Santa Claus. Language: Excessive use of the word "jerk". Consumerism: Spongebob is a large franchise, there is plenty of product to buy.

niceness prevails

SpongeBob's kindness more than makes up for his naivety. It's because of his kindness that he's immune to the effects of this fictitious element called jerktonium (Jt). Because he's immune to the effects of jerktonium, SpongeBob is able to stop Plankton from getting what he wants for Christmas- the secret recipe to the Krabby Patty, which doesn't belong to him and which he didn't earn. This teaches kids not to take things that don't belong to them and haven't earned. (As an aside, j is the only letter that's never been used in the periodic table in real life. It is here. (Jerktonium; Jt) That all by itself makes this special memorable for those who'd like to see J get used in the periodic table.)

Targeted for young kids

Watching this didn't really amuse me, except the fact that this was the first ever SpongeBob claymation. The plot felt like it didn't take much time to come up with. The moral is just straight forward. Don't be a jerk, it's Christmas. They even had to make a song about it. This movie is okay.

Excellent Special but some slight language and violence

Overall, I think this was a great special and I'll go over the content. In education, this special was more to entertain than educate, but there is one lesson taught...don't act like a jerk and have the holiday spirit. Next, is positive messages, the special's content did show the silliness of the show itself. Then, positive role models, there were lots of humor and insults in the special, Plankton's evil scheme did add some humor as well. Now about the violence, there were some scenes that had some mild violence which usually frighten children under 7, that is one of the reasons the special is rated TV-Y7. Now about the language, there is some slight language in the special. Just words like "Jerk" and "Idiot". About consumerism, the special is selling lots of products.

The animation isn't good

It's so weird looking. Obviously created with clay like in the low budget TV specials. Why would they do that? It's so not normal for SpongeBob. SpongeBob's a great show, and this special was okay, but if only it were animated THE RIGHT WAY! Overall 3.5/5

Unmemorable Spongebob Adventure Is Enjoyable

This Spongebob story was enjoyable, but nothing memorable. The whole movie revolves around a fruit cake that makes people jerks. The term jerk is used a lot in the movie because of this, also Sandy calls Spongbob an idiot. People fight at random and the city is in chaos, nothing that violent is shown other than some snowball throwing. Spongebot causes lots of destruction and tries to kill Santa, this may upset young children. Spongebob is a good role model because he has a big heart and loves giving to others and being nice.
