Episodes Of SpongeBob SquarePants Are Being Removed From Streaming Services For Being “Inappropriate”

‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ has always been a favorite for our family. It’s one cartoon that we can all watch together and laugh at, and yes… it’s a weird show.

However, apparently, 2 episodes of ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ have been removed from Nickelodeon, Paramount+, and Amazon due to “inappropriate content”.

One episode is titled “Kwarantined Crab,” and is from the 12th season (2019) on ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’. I’ve never seen it, so I can not speak about how I felt about the episode.

I’ve read that it is based on a virus storyline, which is pretty apparent from the title of the episode.

We have decided to not air it due to sensitivities surrounding the global, real-world pandemic.

In this episode, there is a case of the “Clam Flu” that has been found at the Krusty Krab by a health inspector. The health inspector quarantines everyone in the Krusty Krab.

The patrons of the Krusty Krab are obviously anxious and start freaking out about who may have the virus and they toss them in a freezer. Again, I have not watched the episode so I don’t know anything other than what I am writing here.

The other episode that has been removed is called “Mid-Life Crustacean”. It was actually removed from rotation back in 2018. Again, I do not believe this is an episode I have watched before.

We determined some story elements were not kid-appropriate.

the Nickelodeon spokesperson said

In this episode, SpongeBob, Patrick, and Mr. Krabs break into a woman’s home and they steal her underwear. I’m not sure what the context is behind it and I can’t make an opinion, though it sounds a bit weird.
