The first 4 seasons were great, but then it messed up, but nowadays, it's getting back on track because the original creator returned, thumbs up for SpongeBob.

My username states the obvious, but I agree. The classic SpongeBob episodes were good to watch. And Sand Castles in the Sand was one of the good Post-Movie episodes of SpongeBob. And now the Stephen Hillenburg is coming back to work on the show, the show will probably start getting better again. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

1999- Yippee! Unicorns and rainbows and jellyfish and bubble-blowing!

Season 5 or 6- Uh-oh! Disturbing things and bad plots and grotesque faces and all stupid things! - MaxAurelius

SpongeBob is my childhood! Except seasons 5-present, which suck. - MarioMikuFan380
