My son is almost 6 and at his dad's house, he's not allowed to watch Spongebob. He can't have anything on his shoes, clothes, or toys thats Spongebob, or his dad will "get mad and he'll be in trouble". His dad's reason was because it's "stupid..." he doesn't like that the kids imitate the sounds the characters make. He says it doesn' teach kids anything. I beg to differ. The show is actually pretty funny most of the time. And Devin learns all kinds of things from words like "pizazz" to money management to concepts of right and wrong. And as far as the sound effects: they're no more annoying than any other cartoon right now!
