Lately, I've been revisiting the fictitious undersea world of Bikini Bottom. For all you animation/cartoon peeps out there, I am, of course, referring to the world of SpongeBob SquarePants. Since its debut in 1999, it has become one of the most popular cartoons on television. It has spawned several DVDs as well as a feature-length movie, numerous toys and products, and an iconic place in popular culture. I consider myself one of those fans. I've always enjoyed the sheer silliness and ridiculousness, as well as the equally silly animation and exaggerations and such in many, many episodes. This is not to say that every episode is worthwhile, but overall it's just a series with those types of characters you can't help but grin at and enjoy yourself along with. Never before (and probably never again) will we ever see such a brilliantly unique blend of silliness, optimism, weirdness, and craziness/zaniness in an animated series.
