Quotes

Donkeylips: Hey, Sponge.
Sponge Harris: Yeah?
Donkeylips: Maybe if I did lose weight I wouldn't get picked on as much. I'm a little husky, you know?
Sponge Harris: Yeah I know. But getting picked on isn't so bad. Someday I'll get rich inventing this cool space laser and I'll have this giant company and people like Budnick will be emptying my waste baskets.
Donkeylips: Yeah! With gum on the bottom.
Sponge Harris: And big dripping wads of Kleenex!
Donkeylips: Yeah, and he has to pluck it out with his teeth! That'd be cool!
Sponge Harris: Revenge!

Greatest Show of My Childhood
2 February 2003 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the greatest shows ever aired in the history of television. First off, it starts at camp, which is always interesting. It was about a group of teenage campers facing everyday problems, at camp! The writing for the show was very creative, and it was very well acted. It seems like Nickelodeon is unable to air shows like this today because the crappy cartoons take up the whole schedule. I wish that Nickelodeon would just take one week and air episodes of "Salute Your Shorts," "Hey Dude," "Welcome Freshmen," "You Can't Do That On Television," "Nick Arcade," and "Wild and Crazy Kids." Maybe if these shows would air today, a new generation would be able to enjoy them. Ah, those were the days when you would come home from school and have these shows to look forward to. Too bad they've taken it away.
