age 6+

Starfish spin-off has goofy fun, lots of slapstick violence.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (11 ):

Lots of spin-offs tend to be diminished versions of their parent programs -- this one, on the other hand, kicks the undersea world of SpongeBob and Patrick into hyperdrive. The furiously kinetic series is just a relentless series of jokes and sight gags, with little regard for things like plot or continuity. In other words, it's a lot of fun, especially for folks who are already fans of the original series.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
