“‘Spongebob’ is an excellent example of why it isn’t always a
good thing when something becomes enormously popular.
I can understand why ‘Spongebob’ would become hugely popular
and all, but thanks to its mega popularity, it ended up becoming nothing more
than a cash cow to Nickelodeon, which was okay, I guess, but because of its
mega popularity and it being a cash cow for Nick, it’s probably why Nickelodeon
plays this show so damn often even though the newer episodes suck.
And, thanks to ‘Spongebob’’s megapopularity, it was the
reason why Nickelodeon wanted to continue the show after the 1st movie.”
My favorite Useless Cartoon Fact is that Dan Povenmire, co-creator of Phineas and Ferb, was a writer & storyboard artist for “The Camping Episode” while he was working on SpongeBob SquarePants and was also the writer of the Campfire Song Song.
Squidward from SpongeBob SquarePants. Squidward is one of Mod A’s favourite cartoon designs ever. Everything about him is just perfect. From his sagging nose to his bald head to his dully coloured shirt, this design just screams sour depressive. He’s the perfect antithesis to the titular sponge. Just looking at his face with his famous annoyed/bored expression is enough to give Mod A the giggles.
