Mr. Enter's Notebook: Sun Bleached by MrEnter Mr. Enter's Notebook: Sun Bleached by MrEnter
Hey, it's not a season 5 episode!

But seriously. I don't think that the writers were intending to convey what they did, unlike in Uh-Oh Canada where I genuinely couldn't decide whether they could or not. But the mistake is there and it gets really uncomfortable. On a personal note it really does bug the living crap out of me that they're glorifying something as bad for your health as tanning. Yes, they have the line at the end, but it... just bugs me.

On the bright side, Patrick had a nice tan.

I didn't like this episode but admittedly the "it's radical! soda commercial" was kinda funny. The rest of the episode was just stupid.

Ik this is something little but my little sister said, "How did a pink girl and purple guy get in?"
This is true. Pink and purple aren't tans. You might want to go to a doctor for that.

Wait, "a whole episode judging people by their skin color"?

Did the writers really take a plot involving a tanning bed, a party our protagonists aren't allowed into, and somehow come out with RACISM?!?

You know i just realized something the guy who was checking all of the people at the entrance pulled down the kid's pants to check if his ass was tan or not, some random kid. Am i the only one who is disturbed by this?! You know now that i really think about it i think they might make a joke about this, and if they do we have to give up on Nickelodeon entirely, or atleast i will.

i wouldn't be bothered if Visual Gags on that and other episodes WERE FUNNY!!!!Plus Thats on Child Abuse Levels. Even Someone Else wouldn't Throw Her Brother in The Trash *Cough**Cough* May *Cough**Cough*Not one Other person i have seen on TV/Anime Wouldn't Do That. but England Did Abandon Sealand and America Rebelled From Him*Hetalia* So England Might Be Abusive But Not That Low.

The statement about too much sun being a problem also seems shoehorned in at the last minute.

There's only one good thing about this episode. Heck it's probably the only good thing I appreciate about post-movie SB episodes overall. I like how they're branching out & using a variety of sea creatures that they haven't used before (instead of just reusing background fish & giving them one episode identities), like dolphins, rays, & like here, sea otters. It may not be much, but at least it's something.

Yeah it's this episode that the secondary characters pissed me off the most, not because they're being dumb and hypocritical like in other episodes, but needlessly mean spirited.

What bothers me about this episode is that it practically teaches it's target audience (I looked it up, it's 6-11.) to start worrying over their appearance. Which is sad because that's too soon to start.

You might think a tan looks good now, but sun spots, wrinkles and skin cancer don't look good on anyone.

I like the title card music. Here's how to make the plot work, in my opinion. Have both of them accidentally suntanned, but just color swapped with each other (SpongeBob is pink and Patrick is yellow), and have the rest of the episode with them trying to cover it up. When they're exposed, the other people think they look cool , and compliment them. Then, the burn goes away when they take a special bath.

Nope! Especially the part when a toddler was literally thrown into a trash can for having an untanned bottom...the mom's reaction didn't help. :/

Once again Patrick Star hates Spongebob I mean like he wants Spongebob dead. I'm glad this is a cartoon show on a kids network because if this was real the writers would be in jail.

What bugged me about this episode is how that seal guy threw a baby in a dumpster and the mother seemingly scolded the baby for not having a tan in one little spot.

This episode has always disgusted me, I can't wait to see you rip it to shreds on Animated Atrocities. I don't know what was worse, not allowing people into the party because they were not tan enough or the fact that it seemed to glorify over tanning which could cause major health issues. I also found the seal character very annoying.

this episode i was wanting to actually suggest, because i have always had the realisation (ever since it came out when i was about..what 10?) was that it was telling people it's GOOD to tan. GOOD.
while tanning in moderation can be relaxing, it often leads to skin cancer. these people are basically saying "hey kids! get skin cancer because people will think you're cool!"
as you can tell i don't go outside much.

To be honest this episode never bothered me that much. The ONLY thing that bothered me in this episode was the way they made SpongeBob look after he was "Sun Bleached".

That wasn't meant to be told, so it falls under unfortunate implications. This episode got ten in that category for judging people's skin color and glorifying sun tanning.
