More on this petition:
Recently it was discovered that the fan-favorite episode of the animated program "Mid-Life Crustacean" had been REMOVED from the Paramount+ streaming service, while its sister episode, "The Great Snail Race" still remains. This has upset a lot of fans. The episode sees Mr. Krabs undergoing a mid-life crisis, so he joins SpongeBob and Patrick on their night on the town in an attempt to feel young again. The scene in question which may have prompted the removal was when Patrick talks Mr. Krabs into a panty raid. They sneak into a house and score a pair of bloomers, only to be caught, and worse yet - it’s the home of Krabs' mother, who gives him an earful. Now it is very plausible that Nickelodeon simply thought this moment of the episode was simply inappropriate for kids, and that’s why it may be gone. But Nickelodeon already knows that a large portion of the fanbase is composed of nostalgic adults, and they CAPITALIZE on that, too. The least they could do is bump up the rating on this episode or include a warning or something else, because if media is to be removed from streaming due to its content, it should be for reasons such as racial insensitivity or anything else of the like that actually proves harmful to society. Not to mention, what they've done is pretty hypocritical. They still have the episode "Are You Happy Now?" which features a handful of grim SUICIDE JOKES. Also of course they still retain the episode "One Coarse Meal" which has a after seeing Plankton attempting suicide by trying to get himself run over, after his fear of whales is exploited by Mr. Krabs to the point of developing paranoia. A panty raid is nothing compared to suicide jokes, so why does this one get to stay? Hypocrites. If this petition fails, we may never be able to legally view or stream these episodes again except on home video, which is barely used anymore. If we succeed, a fan-favorite episode will be restored, and the fanbase shall rejoice.
