    Lol I remember reading this before, in fact there has been an on going debate on this subject for quite a while: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpongeB...nd_controversy

    I mean in a way I can see their argument for him supposedly "acting gay" but I seriously doubt the way SpongeBob SquarePants acts will have a significant effect on a childs future choices and behaviour, which is what they are trying to argue.

    If you read the Wikipedia article they took a series of quotes out of context and used it as proof of him supposedly promoting a Homosexual lifestyle.
    You have to admit this one is particularly hilarious: "Who wants to lick my cheeks?"

    It is Spongebob and Patrick. If you watch it closely, they do seem as if they are more than friends.

    I used to let my sons watch Spongebob but I did eventually ban them from it. It didn't have to do with any gay overtones, but them repeating some of the stupid dialog from the show.

    Lately I have them playing Minecraft, learning how to build houses and hack zombies to death.

    this is even more funny .... >.<

    A 2011 study conducted at the University of Virginia, published in the journal Pediatrics, suggested that allowing preschool audiences to watch the series caused short term disruptions in mental function and attention span. The study had three groups of four year-olds each engaged in activities; one group watched SpongeBob, another watched Caillou, and the third group drew pictures. After nine minutes, the children were tested on mental functions; the group watching SpongeBob scored significantly lower than the other two groups, whose results were roughly equal to each other.[55] A Nickelodeon executive responded that the show was not intended for an audience of that age and that the study used "questionable methodology and could not possibly provide the basis for any valid findings that parents could trust."[56]

    Why don't they ban the newer cartoon for being extremely retarded and pointless? Cartoon isn't what it used to be.

    I have no idea I have never seen the show. There were much more graphic pictures available though

    Also I agree. Television schedules in Ukraine should be based on your opinion.

    I don't know, to be honest there arguably are homosexual undertones in SpongeBob, but should it matter all that much? I doubt that the average child watching these sort of TV shows identifies them as such.From the very beginning the programme was meant to be silly and unrealistic, I mean he lives in a pineapple. It's more just a case of people looking too deep into stuff.

    Here check this out, anyone remember Cow and Chicken?
    I love the show it was legendary lol

    EDIT: I realisd I used "I mean" way too many times
