Why Spongebob Isn't Funny Anymore

Assalamualaikum=)
You may know about Nickelodeon's Spongebob Squarepants, but do you know who's the creator? Or should i say EX-creator? It was Stephen Hillenburg, a marine biologist and ex-marine biology teacher. Yes, it's clearly the answer why he wrote a cartoon who the character lives in the pineapple under the sea.

Stephen Hillenburg was born on August 21st '61. He currently owns his production company, United Plankton Pictures, which the logo is plankton itself holding hands with his family members, which is somewhat based on one of the episodes. Stephen Hillenburg graduated from Humboldt State University with a degree in natural-resource planning and interpretation, with an emphasis in marine resources. He earned a Master of Fine Arts in experimental animation from California Institute of Arts. 
Before Stephen Hillenburg created Spongebob, he wrote a comic book titled 'The Intertidal Zone" and showed it to Martin Olson, one of writers of Rocko's Modern Life. He then suggested him to write a cartoon series about undersea creatures.
Stephen Hillenburg was rumored to have left the series. However, he did not actually leave the show but resigned from his position as the show's executive producer.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Hillenburg) The question is, who's in charge now? Some people state it's Paul Tibbitt. But whoever he is, he's not Stephen Hillenburg, so that's why...
