I came across an interesting article the other day in the LA Times about a study that shows SpongBob SquarePants impairs little kids’ thinking. Psychologists have found that a brief exposure to SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward and the rest of the crew appears to dampen preschoolers’ brain power. The study ultimately found that the kids who watched nine minutes of the frenetic high jinks of the “animated sponge” scored significantly worse than the other kids.
As the mother of an intellectually developing 5-year old, I can say my daughter will not be watching SpongeBob anytime soon.
