hile there is something a little familiar about the use of a journey narrative, and the hint of an uplifting message at the end of the film, the breezy insouciance, gleeful absurdity and wacky innocence of the series remains.

The story is so good-naturedly silly that while not exactly challenging, it should keep even the grown-ups at least smiling.

Normally, when I'm watching it in my Scooby-Doo underwear eating my Cap'n Crunch cereal I don't even think of it being a kid's show but here I noticed it.

SpongeBob isn't just a hit, he's an institution. From a gang of pirates singing the theme song to countless variation of the Goofy Goober anthem, the audience of young and old sang along as if they were doing late-night karaoke.
