The Things About Spongebob That Didn’t Make Sense
And how that ignorance made it the funniest show ever
Alright, this has to be said.
Most parents have come to know this guy.
Kids my age growing up and kids today know this guy.
In the United States, I’d like to think everybody knows this guy.
Listen, I think the cartoon is hilarious. It might be the most hilarious cartoon I have ever seen.
But how does a sponge wear pants with a tie live in a pineapple house at the bottom of the ocean. Who walks to a restaurant where he grills burgers for customers.
Where does the meat come from?
Why aren’t the buns and burger all soggy?
Where are they getting the bread?
Where did they get the wood for the construction of the Krusty Krab?
Where is the energy for the lights, fryer, etc coming from?
How is there a fryer, electricity, and other things all operating in the water?
There was an episode where Spongebob was blowing bubbles under the sea. How is he doing this?
In another episode, Spongebob and his best friend Patrick are drowning at the beach.
They are drowning at the beach, under the sea.
The lifeguard is a lobster named Larry with sunscreen on his nose.
His boss is a crab who loves money and has a daughter who is a whale. His daughter is a whale.
Apparently boats work (and have motors) under the water. Not sure how or why.
Spongebob’s other good friend is a land squirrel. No, not a squirrel, a land squirrel. Her name is Sandy.
Who heard of an underwater town named Bikini Bottom and immigrated from Texas.
Somebody built her a tree dome with a nice Oak tree in it.
How was this even possible? Who told a squirrel about this town? They’re advertising to Texas animals?
Oh yeah, in the first season when nematodes eat Spongebob’s house, the seed that he cries on ends up growing a brand new pineapple house flush with all the windows, doors, and interior design completely furnished.
I love Spongebob, in my childhood, I just went along with everything.
I look back at it today and realize that nothing about this show makes any sense.
Oh yeah, they also had a campfire one time — UNDER THE SEA.
