Watching Spongebob episodes when I was younger at my Grandma's house was probably one of the most memorable experiences of my life so far. I remember eating breakfast at her house and sitting in front of the TV while eating cereal (My favorites include Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cocoa Puffs) and eating chocolate chip or cinnamon pop tarts. To this day I love Spongebob and I can reference almost any episode and have a great laugh about it.

Here is why Spongebob Squarepants is still relatable while in my 20's:

1. Squidward Tentacles

He's literally the only adult in the show who takes responsibility, even when he doesn't want to be an adult.

2. Spongebob Squarepants

He's over-optimistic about everything.

3. Eugene Krabs

Mr. Krabs is super cheap and is super relatable to college students. Let's be honest we all know what Ramen noodle meal nights are like.

4. Patrick Star

We all look for that one person who is dumber than we are for a self-confidence boost.

5. Sandy Cheeks

Sandy knows too much of her science and because of this, she knows that she's a squirrel who lives underwater and goes outside her comfort zones to achieve her goals.

6. Plankton

A "friend" who discourages you and tries to steal your thunder about your accomplishments.

7. Gary the snail

We love our pets.

8. Larry the Lobster

The one friend you have some time in your life that flexes on your to try to make you jealous of something.

9. The Flying Dutchman

Another friend we have who is basically dead inside and still shows up to an event.


So I didn't do EVERY character from the show, but I did the main ones that I love. Spongebob will always be so relatable. #SpongebobForever.
