SpongeBob Squarepants is a children's cartoon airing on Nickolodeon that focuses on SpongeBob, who lives in a pineapple under the sea. That's how the theme goes, at least. SpongeBob lives next door to Squidward Tentacles and Patrick Star, and he works with Mr. Krabs at the Krusty Krab. Not only that, his friend Sandy the Squirrel lives in a "tree dome" and walks around the ocean floor with the help of an underwater suit.

The comedy centers around SpongeBob's naivete, but that naivete makes way for a great deal of adult humor. This is the sort of show that allows adults and kids alike to laugh heartily. Kids will laugh at the typical sort of slapstick comedy that comes with cartoons, but adults will find that there is a great deal of adult humor hidden in the dialogue that would only be noticed by grown-ups. At times, grown-ups would have to walk a particular episode more than once to catch all the inuendo and adult jokes.

SpongeBob does deal with issues that kids are faced with everyday like school, because SpongeBob is still in boating school, work ethic, because Squidward is lazy at work, and friendship, because Patrick and Spongebob are inseparable.

This is perfect type of cartoon for families because everyone can enjoy. Parents will find it much easier to sit through these cartoons because they will have something to watch. No more nodding for the parents, and there's much more fun in store for the kids with every new episode.
