    I love Rocko, but I like Spongebob more.

    Rocko was great, good memories and its just overall a great cartoon. Spongebob was good but ever since the new look (Season 2 I beleive) it just drowned, the new expressions are so darn annoying and the humor became a bit lame. So Rocko all the way.

    Rocko defiantley. Spongebob has had some excellent episodes in the first three seasons, but season 4 is terrible. Rocko never went downhill and it ended before it even could begin to have bad episodes. The show had classic after classic after classic.

    While SpongeBob is an awesome show, Rocko's Modern Life could beat it anyday.

    Rocko's Modern Life, easily. SpongeBob is an underwater copy of Rocko, but what did you expect. Made by the same people.

    Definately Rocko's Modern Life.  Spongebob is good, but can get very annoying.  Rocko's Modern Life is the best!

    Here's what I said when this question was asked in the SpongeBob SquarePants forum:

    "SpongeBob SquarePants is funny but can not stand up to the almighty power of Rocko's Modern Life. Rocko's Modern Life had more adult jokes and it had Filburt, Dr. Hutchison and Heffer. They are REALLY what make me like Rocko's Modern Life more. And another thing was how Rocko's Modern Life stayed at the same quality for all four seasons even when Joe Murray left while SpongeBob SquarePants sort of lacked off  after Steve Hillenburg left. 

    But they only differ by a couple points. I give Rocko's Modern Life a 10.0 and I give SpongeBob SquarePants a 9.5.

    I will probably be outnumbered but I don't care. Rocko's Modern Life went with quality over quantity and SpongeBob is probably going to kill itself with the next season. See there was going to be a fifth season of Rocko's Modern Life but Joe Murray stopped it from happining because he knew the show would drop in quality since he wasn't there. THAT'S JUST MY OPINION."

    Except now that I think about it I'd give SpongeBob a 8.5.......

    They're both brilliant but Rocko's better.

    Of course Rocko's Modern Life will be more popular, considering this is a Rocko's Modern Life page.

    I like SpongeBob better, though out of Nicks shows, Rocko's Modern Life is definetly in the top five for me.

    i had good memories as a 5 year old watching this show. i can only imagine it to be better as a 14 year old who understands the hidden adult humor in the show. heres hoping for some dvds.

    Rocko all the way. Spongebob is pretty good but lacks consistency. Rocko was jsut too short similar to Doug being short.

    I used to be obsessed with SpongeBob... I still kind of like it, but after the 4th season started airing, the episodes haven't been as good. SpongeBob sounds like he's always on helium!  The whole Plankton vs. Mr. Krabs rivalry used to be funny, but now it's annoying... you can always predict on what's going to happen next, and be right. I think that the show should've ended after the 4th season, maybe even earlier (like after the movie).  But we'll see. I could be wrong. Maybe Season 5 will be really good.. I can't say for sure.

    But for RML, on the other hand, I've never had anything bad to say about it. It's just... a really good show! But really though, I'm not kidding. To be honest, I haven't seen all the episodes (well, at least not for a good 5 years!), but from the ones I did see, they were all awesome. It's the kind of show that I'll watch anytime and feel great.

    Overall, I think RML is the better show in my opinion. Sure, it doesn't have as many episodes as SB, but like tomkfan said, it had quality over quantity, which I think is way better than having 100+ episodes, but they're really dumb.

    Rocko for sure! As I got older and rewatched episodes with my siblings, it was even funnier than when I first saw it... Love the adult humour!
