I just realized how many similarities both shows have. (This is not a complete list, these are just the similarities I can think of.) :sbdisappointed:
  • Comedy
  • First episode released in 1999 (FG on Jan 31 and SBSP on May 1)
  • Creators have first names starting with S (Seth MacFarlane and Stephen Hillenburg)
  • Creators have 10 letters in last name
  • Both shows have a loveable idiot with their first name starting with P (Peter and Patrick)
  • Both shows have a punching bag character (Meg and Squidward)
  • Both shows have a small but evil genius (Stewie and Plankton)
  • Both shows' main characters work at a food/drink maker (Peter works at Pawtucket Patriot Brewery and SpongeBob works at Krusty Krab)
  • FG and SB both have spin offs (The Cleveland Show for FG and Kamp Koral and TPSS for SpongeBob)
  • Both shows are generally considered to have declined in quality around the 6-8th season and recovered later in the series
There may be more...

Family Guy and Spongebob had Cel animation in some form (Family Guy had it's first episode in cel animation for it's first couple of minutes while Spongebob had it throughout the 1st Season)

Peter and Patrick also have declined at some point in their respective series, but have recovered along with the show

Both shows have recurring doctors (Dr. Gilgilliam and Dr. Hartman)
