My Thoughts:

I ended up saving the review copy to give to Bella as a Christmas gift, along with a handful of other SpongeBob toys and clothes.  Thanks to my 8 year old nephew who is a huge SpongeBob Squarepants fan, he has turned our youngest onto this hit animated series.  At first, Bella would watch for the catchy theme song, which she would sing along as she stomped around the living room floor.  But, then, after she sat for a bit to watch the show, she was hooked.  I, however, can't seem to get into the show.  Not sure what the fuss is over the show.  But, I guess I am one of the few, as there are so many SpongeBob things out there -- from apps to clothing to toys and a growing collection of DVDs.  Come February, a new SpongeBob movie will even be hitting theaters.  Bella and my nephew have already started to count down and can't wait to go and see SpongeBob on the big screen.  But, in the meantime, they have been enjoying this upcoming release, which includes the original pilot episode that started this whole SpongeBob craze, as well as a mini-movie and over 40 shorts.  

If you have a SpongeBob fan in your house (young or old -- I say this as my husband is now a fan after sitting with the kids and watching the shorts), then you will want to pick up this upcoming DVD release, so that it can be added to their growing collection, and to keep them entertained as they wait for the highly anticipated SpongeBob movie, set to arrive in theaters in Feb.
