SpongeBob and his pet snail
SpongeBob SquarePants, the popular children's tv show on Nickelodeon, is showing a special 30 minute episode tonight with a pet-related theme.
SpongeBob's pet snail, Gary, runs away when his owner becomes distracted, only to be reunited when SpongeBob realizes he cannot take his pet for granted. Pretty simple, and looks funny. Read more here.
Being the top show in the 2-11 age range, and with over 12 million adults also watching, I wonder if pet snail sales are booming.
