Walking by the family television, I noticed that a new episode of Spongebob was on. As I caught a glimpse of what was going on, I was horrified. Squidward was hanging up a rope, tying a noose with a sad look on his face, talking about how "this will make him feel better.", as he continued to raise the rope, a birdcage was attached to it. And that's not all. Another scene involved him putting his head in an oven, only finding out shortly he was pulling out burnt brownies. This episode is called; "Are You Happy Now." Squidward is depressed because he has no happy memories, like Spongebob does. I am extremely offended. This is a show for ages 6-12, and suicide is NOT a laughing matter in ANY circumstance. Even if these scenes were ment for adults, it should NOT be shown on a "safe, family friendly channel" such as Nickelodeon. Just recently, I had a classmate, and a close friend of mine, commit suicide, and it was indeed NO laughing matter. Please sign my petition to get this inappropriate episode off the air. Here's the link to the clip: http://youtu.be/D1Yfi67GC4Y
