A study published in the journal Pediatrics found that kids who watched Spongebob Squarepants did worse on tests that required them to remember a series of numbers, follow rules, and delay gratification by having to wait five minutes before eating some goldfish crackers. They say it’s because the show is so fast paced, with scenes changing every 11 seconds. One of the researchers says, “An hour or two of SpongeBob is way worse than two hours of Caillou.” It’s also funnier, more interesting, cleverer, and more creative. A small price to pay to raise a generation of Patricks.
