No, no, no...Spongebob isn't evil, Plankton is!
We don't have TV at home but lots of DVDs (and TV other places we spend time) and I tend to like a lot of what DS likes. I will probably never love Tom and Jerry but Spongebob (first introduced to us as spongebob schwammkopf) Animaniacs, scooby doo, studio ghibli, it's all good. Oh except for iCarly. Ugh.
Eta: I'm pretty sure Spongebob is supposed to be annoying. It's part of his schtick.
