A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Blockhead that he is, SpongeBob may not be universally considered to be a positive role model for kids, and a lot of the humor in the videos is pure slapstick. But overall, nothing seriously disturbing related to social behavior.
No "official" swearing. Some verbal sparring, mild name calling and self-deprecating comments that many parents may not want their younger kids repeating.

Parents need to know that at this site kids can watch full-length SpongeBob SquarePants episodes and mini clips, play games, learn about how the show is created, meet other fans, and shop all things Bikini Bottom.
Is It Any Good?
If you're at all familiar with SpongeBob SquarePants, the creative silliness of this site's content won't be a surprise. Yet the games aren't likely to hold kids' attention for many return trips. If your child is a cartoon fanatic who wants to be a cartoonist or humor writer someday, reading the site's SpongeBob Crew Blog and reading the updates on the show's happenings may be educational. Overall, SpongeBob fans will love this site, non-fans likely won't get it.
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.
