Is Watching 'SpongeBob' Bad for Young Kids?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 12th 2011 6:45AM
SpongeBob SquarePantsMost parents who allow their young children to watch TV spend a lot of time fretting over issues such as which shows are age-appropriate, which ones are educational or improving, and which ones could be harmful.

The latest kids' show to be called into question is Nickelodeon's long-running cartoon series, 'SpongeBob SquarePants.' According to The Wrap, a study due to be published online Monday by the journal 'Pediatrics' found that watching just nine minutes of 'SpongeBob' had a negative effect on four-year-olds' attention spans.

Nickelodeon questioned the validity of the findings, criticizing the small size of the control group and pointing to the fact that 'SpongeBob' is targeted at children aged six to eleven, not four.

According to Deadline Hollywood, 'SpongeBob' has been renewed for a 26-episode season 9 that will begin in 2012. The series has been Nickelodeon's top series among children ages 2-11 for 10 years.

"We never imagined we would be on for that long but we're going to keep going," executive producer Paul Tibbitt said. "The trick is to try to keep the episodes funny and simple and press from there."

New TV DVDs for Jan. 26: 'SpongeBob SquarePants,' 'Southland' & More

by Scott Harris, posted Jan 26th 2010 11:00AM
This coming Sunday, the NFL celebrates a successful season by putting on their annual Pro Bowl exhibition. But while it's touted as a showcase for the league's best and brightest talents, in truth most real football stars sit out the game, meaning the teams on the field are usually a bunch of unknowns, future talents and once weres. In other words, a lot like this week's DVD releases.

Oh, that's not to say that there aren't some charming little finds among today's crop, but if you're looking for the heavyweights like 'Lost,' 'Grey's Anatomy' or 'House,' well, you're out of luck, and unlike fans attending the pro bowl, chances are you aren't in Hawaii either. But that's okay. Just like the NFL drags the second stringers into the spotlight (we're looking at you, David Garrard), the show must go on here as well, so here's our list of the best of the rest for this week in TV DVDs.

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 25th 2010 6:00PM
You're A Good Man, Charlie BrownHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I guess this is a good week to find out what type of TV fan you are. Are you going to be Callan or are you going to buy Bridget's Sexiest Beaches?

The only thing I might buy is the remastered edition of You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown. I can't remember the last time I saw it, but I've been on a Peanuts kick lately. Though it's a lot of singing and dancing (it's based on the classic Broadway musical) and I'm not sure if I can handle that.

  • Bridget's Sexiest Beaches - Season 1
  • Callan - Set 2
  • Dirty Jobs - Collection 5
  • Inspector Lewis - Complete Collection, Series 1 & 2

Sesame Street DVDHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I'm always amazed at how many seasons JAG lasted. It started on NBC in 1995 then went to CBS, and I really thought it was the type of show that wouldn't last beyond three seasons, but it lasted ten! I thought the same thing about NCIS, and look at what happened there too. Obviously I don't do well predicting how shows with all caps in their titles will do.

  • Batman: The Brave and the Bold - Vol. 2
  • Dawson's Creek - Complete Series
  • Discovery Collection - Complete Collection
  • G.I. Joe - A Real American Hero Collector's Set
  • Heartland - Season 1, Part 2

Spongebog Squarepants is celebrating his 10th birthday with celebrities.The popularity of SpongeBob SquarePants amongst kids (and many adults) is almost beyond explanation.

Don't get me wrong. It's a fun show that skillfully blends little kid appeal with occasional bursts of adult-worthy humor. It also boasts an impressive voice cast, including Tom Kenny and Clancy Brown. But there are kids who can't live without this little tie-clad yellow blob.

To celebrate the little champ's tenth birthday, Nickelodeon has announced SpongeBob's 10th Anniversary Celebration (Nov. 6 at 8 p.m.) with a list of A-list celebrities, including Rosario Dawson, Craig Ferguson, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, LeBron James, Pink, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Robin Williams.

That impressive collection will appear in an hour-long special featuring SpongeBob flashbacks.

The special is hosted by Patchy the Pirate, "President of the SpongeBob Fan Club (Encino Chapter)." He sets off for Burbank -- home of Nickelodeon. (It's on Olive, near Victory -- in case you were wondering.)

SpongeBob SquarePantsHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I don't care how much controversy there is, why would anyone want to buy the Jon & Kate Plus 8 DVDs? Would you really want to sit around a year or two or five from now and watch the episodes again? Why?

There's a new Route 66 DVD set out, Season 3, Volume 1, but if you got the Season 3 collector's set from Best Buy or Critic's Choice, they've issued a recall.

  • Charlie's Angels - Season 4
