SpongeBob Rebuttal

I was amused to find a rebuttal to my SpongeBob post in my email this morning.

Oh, btw, saw your blog entry on Spongebob… I agree, the study could have been more well researched, but for the right age group, it could be appropriate. Spongebob even saved two lives! http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/NJ-Boy-8-Saves-5-Year-Old-From-Drowning-Credits-Spongebob-96039054.html

I’ll concede a point to SpongeBob, but I’ll also give a nod to the specification that the target age group is important – perhaps another flaw in the study, and/or the viewing audience in practice. (The kids in the study I quoted were of preschool age.) In any case, I stand by the fact that if the concept is to be raised at all, it should be examined more thoroughly and methodically than it was.
