Top Ten Reasons SpongeBob Is Better Than Family Guy


The Top Ten

1 Spongebob is for all ages

No. Just no

I don't think you can compare them, just read this, trust me, kids watch SpongeBob, so it's kid friendly, but I see some reasons as to why Family Guy is worse is because Family Guy isn't for all ages and it's more disgusting, that's because it's not aimed for little kids, and of course SpongeBob doesn't try to be funny with racism it's a kids show lol - EpicHorrorMaster

Which is why it's worse. I like family guy a lot more... - Therandom

You can't compare a KIDS SHOW with an ADULT SHOW, get your facts straight!

2 Patrick is Funnier Than Stewie

I like Stewie more.

Squiward himself

I agree that SpongeBob is better than Family Guy, but Stewie is funnier than Patrick - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Having a dumb starfish who is the most lovable - McKing1003

3 More Lovable Characters

Because their more famous... - Nateawesomeness

Again,that's what makes family guy funnier

4 Family Guy Is Overrated

Actually it used to be but now it's Overhated just like with SpongeBob

Only people who really thinks its racist or sexist hate it - FerrariDude64

*spits soda out* - Nateawesomeness

So is Spongebob! - Jay12

5 Better Seasons

SpongeBob only had 4 good seasons,family guy has like 10 good seasons - Nateawesomeness

Family guy has 9 hilarious seasons,and people say SpongeBob is dropping,not because of Patrick,but because of SpongeBobs personality and the odds in the krusty Krab

6 Family Guy Doesn't Have A Movie

I think Seth said he was making a movie, but who knows - EpicHorrorMaster

I like sponge is out of water the movie,but one single episode of family guy is funnier than both movies combined

7 More Fans

More fans is always a plus, it can get hot in the summer - DislikeMyComment

Family guy has been out for 15 Years as well u retard not 2 years tf - Dbzcurry

That pretty much depends on age group - EpicHorrorMaster

What do u expect SpongeBob is been out for almost 15 years and family guy was for 2 years you dumbass

8 Squidward Himself
9 No swearing

There are two things you should know. One, it's aimed towards children, so of course there isn't going to be swearing. Two, there was an episode called Sailor Mouth that involved swearing, but with sea-themed censorship. This isn't really a good reason for comparing SpongeBob SquarePants with Family Guy. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Deal with it if they sware

This isn't a reason

It is a kid's show! So do not be suprised if there is no swearing - newenglander1

10 Family Guy Has Worse Episodes

What episode is worse:

House Fancy or Peter Problems(both have one gory scene that ruins the otherwise dull episodes they are in)?

Squid Baby or Brian Griffin's House of Pain (Both have head trauma and uncomfortable situations played for laughs, with the victim unable to speak to the other characters about their pain)?

Friends Without Benefits or Little Yellow Book(Both involve making the sympathetic character that everyone in their show hates unlikable)?

The Splinter or Herpe the Love Sore? (Both are gross out episodes revolving around a character suffering from an infection played for laughs)?

As bad as the SpongeBob episodes mentioned above are, their Family Guy conterparts are MUCH worse.

I'd rather see "Different Way" than "Seahorse Seashell Party". - Turkeyasylum

Well SpongeBob episodes are boring and family guy is hilarious


The Contenders

11 Family Guy Is More Disgusting

Grossout = immature humor that is not even funny.

Modern SpongeBob is more disgusting, with tons of gross close ups of rotten food, creepy, nightmarish, and gross faces, body horror, and all this other gross crap. They also imply gross things, such as when Mr. Krabs said in "Frozen Face Off" that he was eaten by a Yeti, and waited for it to take "nature's course" which obviously means Krabs was crapped out (HE STILL DESERVED IT! ) - Goatworlds

That's what makes it funny. At least lMAO. - IronSabbathPriest

12 Family Guy Was Canceled

It Was Canceled, But Then They Brought It Back. And When They Did The Whole Show Started To Go Downhill, The Same Thing Also Happened To SpongeBob SquarePants, So I Don't Know If It's Wise To Say That SpongeBob Is Better Than Family Guy When They Both Got Cancelled And Brought Back From The Dead.

13 Family Guy Has More Annoying Characters

Who has a more annoying laugh, Peter or SB? - Puga

14 SpongeBob doesn't try to be funny with racism

I see the points here, but racism isn't funny at all. People suffered from the way others treated them. Making jokes about that AIN'T FUNNY!

That's because the show is for kids, you can't just say SpongeBob is better for this reason, because if SpongeBob used racism openly and clearly throughout the show, Hillenburg would be fired, guys, Family guy tries to be racist because its clearly aimed for adults, do I like SpongeBob? Yes, do I like Family Guy? Yes, which one is better? I have no answer because you can't compare the two, ones for kids and the other is for adults, when you mentioned "SpongeBob is more clean." This however is invalid because Family guy tries to be funny by being dirty, why? Because that's McFarlanes job to do that, he wants to make adults laugh, Hillenburg wants to make kids laugh, if both of them were to look at this list, they'd be like "What? " because you can't compare SpongeBob to family guy, two way different categories of comedy, so you can't say somethings better because you don't like it that way, and family guy is successful in what you think is wrong, and when you said ...more

So what family guy is the best show ever and is way better then SpongeBob

So? SpongeBob tries to be funny with suicide. - Goatworlds

1 Comment
15 Stephen Hillenburg got upset about the bad episodes on later seasons of SpongeBob and chose to return to SpongeBob to return it to its former glory. Seth MacFarlane keeps Family Guy running and doesn't seem to care that the show is producing bad episodes
16 The Meg abuse is worse than the Squidward torture

It is certainly. Also, Meg is far more sympathetic than Squidward. - Svampbob164

17 Spongebob Is The New Rocko's Modern Life

Ok its Ren and Stimpy.

Your metaphors aren't working

18 Not offensive

Family Guy is as offensive as the plot requires it to be - EpicHorrorMaster

19 SpongeBob doesn't get preachy with its beliefs

In Just One Bite, SpongeBob tried to force Squidward to eat a Krabby patty, but then decided to respect Squidward's opinion on the sandwich (before Squidward became obsessed with eating them). - Murvine_Taylor

At least Spongebob is subtle and does not go out of it's way to teach a lesson.

20 No Conway Twitty cutaway gags

So, they were used in like... 3 of their episodes - EpicHorrorMaster

21 SpongeBob Is Timeless

Spongebob has been silly since the first season but its more watchable than Family Guy. The worst episodes of Spongebob will be better than Family Guy.

Prove it

22 SpongeBob isn't as mean-spirited as Family Guy

You can't really expect mean spirit if it's a kid show - EpicHorrorMaster

Animal abuse and suicide? That's not mean spirited? - Goatworlds

Family Guy has those things. Brian keeps a gun in case he wants to kill himself and in 420, Peter killed Quagmire's kitty (that made me both sad and angry because I love cats). Also, in Brian the Closer, Peter broke Brian's teeth and disfigured his face and didn't feel any remorse for doing so and the family didn't care that Brian was hurt. - Murvine_Taylor

Of course its not it's a kids show dumbass

23 SpongeBob and Patrick don't mean to torment Squidward, but Peter does mean to torment Meg.
24 SpongeBob Is More Clean

You can't degrade a show for something it excels at, SpongeBob is a kids show, its supposed to be clean, Family guy isn't for kids, and its not clean, family guy isn't supposed to be clean, therefore this is an invalid point

McKing1003, are you dumb? , of course SpongeBob is clean its an effing kids show!

25 It Has Dirty Jokes (In A Kids Show)
26 Family Guy Is More Twisted
27 SpongeBob doesn't stop the show in the middle of an episode for a cutaway gag

Again, this is what makes family guy funnier!

28 SpongeBob doesn't try to be offensive. Family Guy makes offensive episodes without understanding how to make them funny.

At least with SpongeBob, there are signs that the writers try to make good episodes. Most of the Family Guy episodes come across as lazy.

29 "Nasty Patty" is a better example of dark comedy than most of Family Guy's dark comedy episodes.
30 The Humor Is Is More Adult
31 No stupid flashback jokes
32 SpongeBob doesn't kill off characters

A la The Life of Brian

33 Memes
34 The worst Spongebob episodes are better than Family Guy
35 Spongebob is cute, Family Guy is ugly.
36 SpongeBob for Kids
37 No Lois Griffin on SpongeBob
