Hello North house! I hope you all had a decent week. For this weeks blog I decided to venture into the world of the seven deadly sins. I know we all probably have heard enough about this, but because we just read the prologue for The Canterbury Tales I figured watching this video will help you compare the seven deadly sins to characters in The Canterbury Tales.
This video titled Are Spongebob & his friends based on the 7 deadly sins? explores the theory that Spongebob and the other main characters from the show are based on the seven deadly sins. The narrator of the video then goes on to explain how each character is connected to the seven deadly sins. After reading the prologue of The Canterbury Tales we were given the extra credit option to think about what sins were some of the characters committing. After viewing this video hopefully it can help you connect which characters are committing which sins from The Canterbury Tales. I chose this video ultimately to bring a different twist on the way we have been learning about the seven deadly sins. Personally I believe this theory is true. I do not think the creators of Spongebob intentionally made the show about the seven deadly sins, however I think they used the sins as a foundation for creating their characters. On the other hand I believe that maybe this could have been a way for the writers of Spongebob to introduce the seven deadly sins in a subtle way to a younger audience. Those are my thoughts, but feel free to explain yours through the prompt.
After viewing this video please answer the following prompt.
Prompt: Do you agree with this theory that Spongebob and the other main characters are based of of the seven deadly sins? If so why? If you do not agree, then why not. Do you think the creators of Spongebob did this intentionally? How does this information apply to what we have read about the Canterbury Tales?
