|^^Yes, plus I wouldn't have wanted the show to end after its third season. Too many fans would get bored with watching the same reruns, and the show would be forgotten.|
In a way, that's kind of true. I was also one of those people who wanted the show to be brought back for another season once I found out that the show did get canceled. However, once the show actually did get brought back for a 4th season, I was really disappointed. These days, I regret demanding Spongebob to get brought back. Now, I think the show has gotten unwatchable.
Though, to be fair, I still give Spongebob credit for being one of the last good Nicktoons to remain on Nickelodeon, even if it has gotten bad. After all, once Nickelodeon finally does take it off the air, it'd be nothing but iCarly and True Jackson left.
