I spent the next two months watching online videos and reading articles to find out why some people view the show as evil.

As a theologian, I also consulted another theologian professor who is a fan of the show to find out his view on this topic. So, you can imagine my excitement last week when, during an online forum, the topic of Spongebob came up.

One of the members said that they heard that the show is evil and wondered whether this is true. Another member asked whether Spongebob is demonic.

Since I had spent months researching this topic, I was glad to share my findings. The discussion was productive, and it inspired me to write this article to share my knowledge on the topic.

Is Spongebob demonic?

While some people view Spongebob as any other entertaining cartoon, some speculate that it is demonic. Those who believe that this cartoon is demonic argue that some of its episodes incorporate themes that are quite disturbing.

For instance, they believe that some episodes contain subtle demonic content, like in the episode where Sandy needs to calm down. Instead of resting, she developed a third eye and started meditating and levitating.

Some viewers suggest that in this episode, Sandy became demon-possessed.

Spongebob is also believed to be demonic due to its disregard for modesty. Some people argue that when Squidward has a loose thread on his shirt, the demonic Spongebob pulls the string.

This made Spongebob pull out Squidward’s shirt and the clothes of the customers who were having their meals at Krusty Krab.

According to some viewers, the expressions on SpongeBob’s face as he talked about pulling the string suggested that he was demon-possessed.

Why do some people believe that Spongebob Squarepants is evil?

Some people believe that this fast-paced carton is evil since it brainwashes children’s minds. They argue that there are a lot of things that happen in the show that cannot happen in real life.

For instance, people believe that magical things happen in the show, such as the bed catapulting one out and landing them in a lake.

Such magical things are believed to disrupt the thinking process of young kids and make it hard for them to grab educational messages from the show.

According to some, Spongebob Squarepants is evil because it has negative messages such as stealing and greed.

Those with this school of thought argue that a character like Mr. Krabs is very greedy and cannot help anyone in need. Some viewers imply that this show is evil since it teaches kids such negative traits.

Spongebob is also believed to overstimulate the brains of very young kids, like 4-year-olds, and makes it hard to trigger executive functional skills.

People argue that young kids model what they see, and therefore, the characters they watch on TV can contribute to their development.

Should you let your children watch Spongebob as a Christian?

Some Christians have nothing against the show, while others believe it is not the best for children. Those who feel Christians should not allow their children to watch Spongebob suggest that it does not promote high moral values.

They argue Spongebob promotes poor positive choices. For instance, Mr. Krabs is believed to have an unhealthy obsession with money.

This is believed to pass the wrong message to kids.

Others imply that as a Christian, one should not encourage their kids to watch this show since it has glimpses of naked butts, cartoony injuries, lots of adult jokes, name-calling, and taunting.

Others suggest that Christians should not let their children watch this show since it pushes children to be more active with their sexuality and is full of violence.
