We all know people SpongeBob is for kids. Well here is some news for some of you all about it SpongeBob. SpongeBob has been aired in many places. SpongeBob has killed childhood minds by watching it. Parents who let there kids watch SpongeBob for maybe an hour or so might not be able to skip most of there grades. I have also proof if you don't believe me. When I was in another class the teacher in the class was talking about how SpongeBob was not a good TV series for children to watch. Also my social studies teacher said her two children would not have been able to skip kindergarten if they were watching SpongeBob. SpongeBob is all about your money not your educational. They want you to think Patrick is very dumb but both SpongeBob and Patrick are both idiots in there own ways. Kids also are obsessed with the show once you start buying them actual toys of it and if they watch it more. The only time I watch it is when I have nothing else on the air to watch. So kids stop your parents from buying you SpongeBob collectibles.

Sponge Bob Square Pants is many things, first and foremost a money maker for the network. Thus even if the show were "horrible," why should Nickelodeon remove it from their line-up? Further the series has won almost 40 awards [1], it is the icon of rebellion against oppressive regimes in Egypt [2], and has spawned ways to introduce young viewers to such socially complex issues as cannibalism [3].

Rebuttals:
"We all know people SpongeBob is for kids."
Not true. "Fans come from all walks of life. They're postal workers, high school principals, television and radio announcers, lawyers and law students, ministers, teachers and airport baggage handlers." -L.A. Johnson, Post-Gazette Staff Writer [4].

"Parents who let there kids watch SpongeBob for maybe an hour or so might not be able to skip most of there grades."
This is true but irrelevant, as kids tend to not skip most grades anyway.

"I have also proof if you don't believe me."
Appeal To False Authority. Who are these teachers, and why should we consider their word gospel?

Thank you for coming back, however the final round is a bit late to cancel a debate.

Conclusion
:
Sponge Bob is not a horrible show, as clearly demonstrated by it's roll in inspiring source 3 (the YouTube video).
Sponge Bob should not be removed, as it still makes the network a lot of money, and wins awards as shown in source 1.

As my case and evidence stand unchallenged, Vote Con!

We may have very different definitions of good. I don't believe I ever called it good, I merely argued both against it being outright horrible, and that the network for reasons of greed should not remove it.
