Bobsicles Reviews Spongebob Squarepants - The Introductionbobbythebrony Hello barnacleheads! Bobsicles is here with a new review series. This time it's Spongebob Squarepants. Considered one of the greatest cartoons of all time, it has a charm that is hard to match. Yeah it has gone downhill the last few seasons, but you can't deny the awesomeness of the first three seasons. Next post will be a review but, as always, let's start with an introduction to the main characters.
Spongebob Squarepants is a yellow sponge and the primary protagonist of the show. He lives in a giant pineapple with his pet snail Gary and is a fry cook at the Krusty Krab. His main interest are his job, jellyfishing, karate, bubble blowing and his friends. In the first few seasons, he is innocent, naïve and intelligent. In later seasons, however, he has become such an idiot and isn't funny anymore. He, along with Patrick, have started to terrorize Squidward on purpose. This has caused him to be viewed as an antagonist by scores of fans.
Patrick Star is a pink starfish, SpongeBob's best friend, and secondary protagonist in the show. He lives under a giant rock down from Spongebob. He is lazy, which is why he has no job. He is always hungry and almost never wears a shirt. He has the same interests as Spongebob. In the first few seasons, he is a loveable idiot who has moments of intelligence. However, he has become so stupid that it's not funny. He has become selfish, mean and has said that he does it on purpose. Like Spongebob, he terrorizes Squidward on purpose. He has become view as an antagonist due to his behavior.
Squidward Tentacles is a light blue/green octopus, SpongeBob's neighbor and coworker, and tertiary protagonist in the show. He is viewed as an antihero due to his grumpy and slightly mean personality. This is understandable though. In the first few seasons, he is a grouch still has moments of happiness and generally cares for Spongebob. Lately, he never smiles and hates Spongebob and everyone else with a burning passion. Most fans sympathize with Squidward as he is constantly tormented and injured by Spongebob and Patrick. His main interests are music, art and cooking. As of today, he is one of only a few characters that are still likeable.
Sandy Cheeks is a brown squirrel, Spongebob and Patrick's friend, and a protagonist in the show. She lives in a treedome and is a karate master and scientist. In order to survive, she wears an astronaut suit. She spends most of her time hanging out with Spongebob and inventing new gadgets. In the first few seasons, she was one of the best characters. Lately, however, she has appeared less and less. When she does appear, it's all about science. She has also become a flawless Mary Sue. It also seems that she is less intelligent than before. She is still a likeable character though, aside from her slight racism.
Eugene Krabs is a red crab and a main character in the show. He owns the Krusty Krab and is obsessed with money. He lives in a giant anchor with his daughter Pearl, who happens to be a whale. His main interest is money and only money. In the first few seasons, he was nice, caring and loved Spongebob like the son he never had. Now, however, he doesn't care about anyone and his obsession with money is so intense that it pisses everyone off. He is the only protagonist to turn into a full blown antagonist as he has crossed the moral event horizon too many times. He terrorizes everyone and is the most hated character on the show.
Sheldon Plankton is a small green plankton, Mr. Krab's rival, and the former primary antagonist. He lives in the Chum Bucket and is obsessed with stealing the krabby patty formula. He also has a computer wife named Karen. In the first few season, he was slightly evil and a genius. Lately, he is not evil and has been dumbed down a bit. He is also not considered to be the main antagonist, as Mr. Krabs has done more truly evil things. He is more of a protagonist and has made the most positive character development. It is also noted that the first movie was the only time he was purely evil. His main interest is world domination. He is also one of only a few still likeable characters left.
Gary Snail is a snail and SpongeBob's pet. He lives with Spongebob in his pineapple and loves him dearly. Unlike the other characters, Gary hasn't changed a bit and is still the same: Good hearted with a bratty side. He can sometimes be inconsiderate to SpongeBob's feelings but is generally still a likeable character. He is often tormented by Patrick and Mr. Krabs. He also has a dislike for Squidward. He is also smarter than he looks and has a knowledge of poetry. He also knows how to tie shoes. He is basically one of only a few likeable characters left.
Well that's the general rundown of the main characters in the show. Next time will be a review but I just wanted to introduce the show to any readers who may have not seen it. If that's all then I'm out. Hasta la vista baby!
