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.

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".

The was one funny joke. I think we all know which one I'm referring to.

Hey kids, if you burn yourself to a crisp, tanned celebrities will respect you for it!

0 for rancid morals?

Did you just take MrEnter's word for it?

I never got racist undertones, but I sure as hell felt uncomfortable with how the episode glorified destroying your skin up until the last two seconds. I can't tan - I burn, and I've had some pretty damn painful burns.

Also, I'm not usually one to claim that kids must be shielded from anything and everything they might imitate, but I can definitely imagine that some kids might refuse to wear sunscreen or something because this episode taught them that tanning is "cool" and protecting their skin is "lame."

I only liked one part of this episode, and that's the soda commercial cut-away.

This episode really made me hate the people of Bikini Bottom more so than before.
