Animated series on Nickelodeon seem to have a pathological need for TV Single Dads of any kind. I’m still trying to figure out how a crab could have a teenage whale for a daughter, but that’s the beauty of animation, ain’t it?

Alert Viewer DaughterKatie points out that SpongeBob’s show has crossed the decade mark in production, surpassing even Rugrats as the longest-lived TV Single Dad show in Nickelodeon history. It continues into the 2020s!
