The Unstoppable Spongebob Revolution


It's an obvious understatement to say that cartoons have changed dramatically since we were kids. Far be it from us to take sides and claim that one generation's animation holds sway over another's. However, we will go on record as stating that there never has been anything that can compare to Nickelodeon's current hit series, "SpongeBob SquarePants" (Fans of the 1980s' "Ren & Stimpy Show" will have to make their case some other time.)

Moreover, this unit also plays audio CDs (including MP3 discs) and features a parental control function with user-selectable password. …
