You can certainly make the argument for other shows, but I'm of the opinion that "SpongeBob SquarePants" is Nickelodeon's magnum opus.
There's something about the ridiculous premise, the engaging style of animation and the show's absurd, yet slightly sophisticated sense of humor that all combine to make a fantastic television show that can appeal to every demographic despite.
There are currently 188 episodes of "SpongeBob," as well as one feature film with a sequel on the way. Over the course of the series, SpongeBob has made a lot of faces, and the Internet has done a phenomenal job of documenting as many of his emotions as possible.
I don't want to say there's a SpongeBob face for every situation, but I know for a fact that there's one for at least 40.
In the spirit of the show, I tried to compile as many examples as possible in an attempt to relate to a wide range of demographics. Hopefully, you'll find a face that will make you say, "I totally know how that anthropomorphic sea sponge feels."
