  • I don't really like it because of the part in the show that really upsetting my kids and i had to carry them out to watch some other show like sponge bob.moreless

    Its a terrible episode, my kids didnt like it either, they demanded spongebob.This is really bad because of the thing that will going to have the man in the thing over spongebob stole a balloon, and then he had to be a criminal, he ran away with patrick, and then they became so called "fugitives" Because when they stole a baloon it was on free balloon day. lol it was funny but then it was a bit silly too. El tigre isnt really good because it appeals to only the hispanics and not everyone. I have nothing against any race im just saying though.moreless
