My kids all know that SpongeBob is my nemesis. I hate that piece of yellow cellulose. For the most part, the entire show is second-grade boy humor, and I get more than enough of that with the television off. As for the characters being “mean” to each other, that wasn’t really something I noticed. Yes, SpongeBob and Patrick annoy Squidward a lot, but it isn’t ever malicious. They are just . . . dorks.
