Babysitting — 15 Comments

  1. Spongebob is on TG4 at 10:55. Dubbed in Irish so you/Puppychild will be spared the Americanisms. Plus it ties in neatly with your previous post too.

  2. Could be worse. It could be Dora the explorer. My friends daughter can count to greater numbers in Spanish than English

  3. Ah yes, you’ve got to love/hate SpongeBob! He’s a plucky character, with too many holes in his brain! Perhaps his name was Blabberwort in an earlier life. 🙂

    Robert, don’t get me started on Dora! She is corrupting the youth worldwide! 🙂

  4. Sponge Bob as Gaeilge? Interesting? Maybe I’ll take a hint from my previous post and disable the Childrens Channels next visit!

    As one who was brought up on “Listen with Mother” all these cartoons do my head in. I might make an exception for “Road Runner” though.

    Beep. Beep.

  5. You are as well off, Grannymar.

    He [she? it?] is a horrid yoke like a lump of cheese on legs.

    He should be very slowly immersed in a bath of neat sulphuric acid….

  6. He is not a lump of cheese. He is a sponge, Bob.
    He lives in a pineapple under the sea. He lives in the town of Bikini Bottem and his neighbors are Squidward Tenacles and Patrick Star. Patrick is a pink starfish and lives under a rock. Squidward lives in an Easter Island head.
    Spongebob has a pet snail named Gary and Spongebob works at the Krusty Krab restaurant making Krabby Patties. His boss, Mr. Krabs is addicted to money.

  7. “Patrick is a pink starfish”

    There are so many innuendos in that program it amazes me that it is fit for children’s viewing!

    Then again if you are an innocent child then the innuendos don’t apply.

  8. I am amazed and amused at your knowledge of Sponge Bob Squarepants. Clearly there isn’t much on TV in Ireland or America for that matter (at least GD was complulsed to watch – what’s you’re excuse Brian?)

  9. I must confess, Robert, that I’m a little concerned at your intimate knowledge of Sponge Bob. Did you have a disturbed childhood or is this just a fetish?

    I suppose it could have been worse if it were Captain Pugwash [Roger the cabin boy, Master Bates and the rest…]?

    And don’t mention Bosco. He died of a heroin overdose years ago.

  10. So what about those of us who went willingly to the movie of said sponge – yes Grandad there is a movie, but it has David Hasselhoff, so there is something for everyone 🙂

  11. What can I say the moment I saw that pink starfish in tights, tiny pants and a corset – I was sold, either that or strangely aroused. My doctor gave me some pills the very next day.
