Spongebob is a wacky little cartoon character; He's an absolute hoot, and he surely hasn't killed a guy , right? Well, I've got some bad news for you. Being on TV for 23 years has allowed SpongeBob to get into every situation imaginable. This includes vehicular manslaughter and 2nd-degree murder. While most fans take SpongeBob's criminal record no more seriously than they'd take Eric Cartman's, some fans were deeply upset about the sea sponge's portrayal.
