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.

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.

and it's racism masked by "tanning" to make it appropriate for kids. it it wasnt a kids show it would be full on racism

Are the unfortunate implications glorifying tanning or for judging people's skin color?

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.
