Sponge Bob Square Pants Has Sexual Innuendo

Updated on January 17, 2012

Sponge Bob Square Pants Panders Homosexuality to Children

Source

Sponge Bob Square Pants is a Naughty Cartoon

I am half English and my son is more English. And as English people we love English humor even though we are 100% American. We are only one generation removed from England so we totally appreciate British humor. Although it is not considered appropriate in America.

I live in a portion of America which has a lot of English people particularly people form London which is were my grandmother was from.


So as much as I love England I am more than certain Sponge Bob Square pants is full of filthy humor and I am not talking filthy dirty I am talking filthy obscene. My son gets it as well. And he insists on watching it because it is so hysterical that the censors haven’t picked up on the dirty jokes on Sponge Bob Square Pants.

Now we love England and we love the Aussies and we even love Canada. But I am not certain a cartoon filled with sexual jokes is good for my son. Not that I could pry him from the show. It is unique in that it got pasted the censors in America. I have to wonder why the American censors don’t get it?

I have since told my son Sponge Bob has been canceled. He is a bit sad about that but life goes on. No more naughty cartoons for my little American English lad. He is just going to have to find a girlfriend.

My son is aware of what homosexuality is as he watches Glee but I would prefer he be spared the specifics. If I wanted him t know the specifics we would study Greek Art. As much as we love the Aussies it would be nice if they loved the USA as well and not pander graphic homosexual content to our children and sneak around the sensors. There are more then enough queens to fill queens land in Australia and unless Australia is going to provide for this demographic of individuals there is not reason they should pander graphic homosexuality to children around the world.

How could the television censors miss the sexual Innuedo on Sponge Bob Sqaure Pants?

Some people have caught on.

      Hi Trish89,

      We as parents have the ultimate ability to monitor and censure our children television habits. It is our responsibility. It did laugh about it when I use to see it. But now I am so busy doing my research and home schooling my son I just cut the cable. Perhaps the telecommunication industry will get the hint this is not kosher in my home for my child. I have to say I also do not miss paying the super expensive cable bill.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. You are a champion raising twins.

      All My Best,

      Jt

      I have to agree 100%. I never noticed it growing up myself, but now that I watch it with my daughter (and sometimes by myself hehe) I catch the little subltle hints they throw around. It is sad that cartoons have come to this.

      Hi Oscortega,

      It is not ony me that sees them it is also an entire facebook campaign that sees them as well.

      I am all for honesty but do you really think in only two episodes you can make that determination?

      Look at what is on facebook and when you see how much is written about SpongeBob Square pants and sexual innuendo I think you will see that perhaps two episodes is not enough to base your decision on.

      Tje link is in this hub. You only needed to click on it to realize everyone else is seeing it. Given the nature of the HubPages I can't go into graphic detail about exactly what the sexual innuendo is but facebook is quite clear.

      I appreciate your honesty but check out the link and then perhaps watch more than two episodes. I think you have rushed to judgement. You can even google SpongeBob Square Pants and Sexual innuendo and see how many refeences there are to it.

      But thanks for getting back to me the same. I do value your opinion.

      Well, I did get to watch two episodes of Sponge Bob. I looked very closely for these innuendos. And it's just as I suspected. I'm sorry but I think some folks are just looking to hard; reaching. And when you look hard enough, and with a little twist you can turn anything into something.

      The first episode was about bad words and not to say them. Nothing sexual in this episode. The second episode was about art. Only one possible reference to sex. If you can call it that. Sponge Bob says "look your on top", and then says "look your on top again". If you want to call that a sexual innuendo, then every show on Television has sexual innuendos. Sorry, but I have to be honest.

      Hi Oscortega,

      Sex does sell unfortunately it isn't appropriate for children. I would think it was funny if it was not so obvious and it hadn't gone on for so long. Where are the television censors? I think for some reason the TV censors have looked the other way on what is obviously inappropriate television content for children. But you see for yourself.

      Let me know.

      Thanks for reding, commenting and providing feedback.

      I will certainly do so this weekend. I'm familiar with the infamous Disney innuendos some years ago. Actually spent a few hours researching them all. But I would have never thought after all the publicity back then with Disney, that a TV show would be able to follow in those foot steps. Therefore, I am very curious and wanting to see for myself. Until next insert...

      Hi Oscortega,

      Look for phallic symbols throughout the show. It is really obvious for the visional learner. Better yet turn off the sound and just watch the images and it is pretty clear.

      I am just shocked the censors haven't fined and cancalled the show.

      Thanks fo reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      Wow, have I missed something?! I tend to watch the show from time to time due to channel surfing. I find it very hard at times to find something worth watching. And now I am to find out that Sponge Bob has inappropriate content? What is this world coming to? This weekend I am going to have to watch and pay very close attention.

      Thanks Ms. Murphy,

      I am a peanuts fan myself. But sex has no business on cartoons and I can't imagine why the USA censors haven't picked up on it.

      Thanks for reading commenting and providing feedback.

      I think you have a very valid concern. I never watched that cartoon on my own volition because as a teen it just looked like a bad cartoon with bad jokes. I did watch it in college when I'd babysit, but it was so bad I'd never pay enough attention to the jokes. But I agree with what you're saying. Regardless of what you think of sexuality being expressed in a public forum, kids should have their innocence as long as possible. I watched Looney Tunes and I know people have had concerns about the violence presented in that, but compared to the things they call kids programming now that's nothing. I hope more parents and concerned viewers speak up because like you said you have to protect children. Awesome hub!

      Hi corrineo,

      Nice to read your comment. I thought I was the only one who noticed. I am surprised the show has made it so long without being censored and fined.

      I had to turn it off as I couldn't risk my son's innocence.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      I agree that Sponge Bob is not a children friendly cartoon. When my god-son was younger I would watch S.B w/ him and would watch in horror as he laughed away at what I thought were inappropriate jokes which were more targeted toward me than his young impressionable mind. After certain jokes I would ask him what about that scene was funny to you? I did this to determine if he took the joke as I believed the show intended as. The only way to gauge where a child is mentally is by asking questions and hope that their innocents are still in tack.
