Almost SpongeBob SquarePants in Taiwan

SpongeBob Squarepants is becoming very popular in Taiwan. The Chinese name for him is 海綿寶寶, or Hai Mian Bao Bao (Sponge Baby). If you haven’t seen him before, it is a funny cartoon about a mischievous sponge and his starfish friend Patrick. It is based underwater and is a good way to learn Chinese. I watch it occasionally to challenge my listening skills. Anyway, here is a product that was for sale at a night market in Taiwan. A SpongBob (yes, no ‘E’ in it) yellow bag.
