Well, look at the anime series "Kingdom of Hearts". Who is trying to save Mickey mouse when he leaves? Yeah, Donald Duck!!! (Along with Goofy, but that's not the topic...)

My opponent's picture, unfortunately, does not evidence the claim. If anything, it just serves to reinforce my claim that Donald Duck is a cantankerous old curmudgeon.

Even if my opponent is correct that Donald Duck "saved" Mickey in this video game, it was only because Mickey--being the altruistic mouse he is--was stroking Donald's already bruised ego. It's just like Mickey to let others have the limelight and feel affirmed.

Mickey does not really need saving as evidenced in this thoughtful South Park montage.

I rest my case.

My opponent's video shows that Mickey Mouse is beating up people and causing chaos. Is that what you want little kids to believe? NO!! Kids want a character who is funny, and not destructive. Besides Mickey's voice sounds like a pedophiles. Also, who is the one that makes people laugh? Donald Duck!

Dear readers, I urge you to consider the evidence before you. Mickey is thoughtful, kind, and giving but not without the capacity to mete severe justice. The very fact that Mickey can destroy anything he desires, but usually refrains, shows that above all, Mickey Mouse has an overwhelming sense of self control.

Mickey is strong yet meek.

Donald, on the other hand, has no sense of self restraint. He is concerned primarily with self-image and has an ego the size of Neptune. He's cranky. He's disingenuous. He's a duck with no magic. As evidenced in this video, Donald isn't even creative enough to come up with his own dance; he's the only one closely mimicking Mickey.

No matter how you slice it, Mickey Mouse is objectively and definitively superior to Donald Duck.

"For starters...the AFF. started off wrong. He said "Because his voice is funny and his actions are just as funny." He never said whether he was talking about Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse so he automatically lost."

I meant to say Neg. Sorry about that.

No need for shame there. That'll be me once the price of the series drops...and I get a wife...and she enjoys Friends.

I am not ashamed to admit that my wife and I are big fans of Friends. We have all ten seasons and have watched it through several times.
