At the moment, it is easy to say that SpongeBob SquarePants is the best cartoon on Nickelodeon RIGHT NOW.

Con

You OBVIOUISLY have not seen the show, Jimmy Neutron. Neutron's film was nominated for an Academy Award making it equal if not better than Spongebob. Neutron has several complicated charaters. Neutron has had a crush and relationship and breakup with Cindy Vortex. There hass never been a love story on Spongebob. Neutron has 3 good friends with different personalities instead of just one good friend, Patrick. Neutron is obviously the superior show.

- Neutron has had a crush and relationship and breakup with Cindy Vortex, while Spongebob has never endured love.

- Spongebob is a FIEND!!!

policydebategod

Con

- Neutron's film was nominated for an Academy Award. These are trained judges who decided that Jimmy Neutron is a great show.
- Neutron has several complicated charaters, while Spongebob only has a lot of arndom, shallow characters. You never responded to this so you must agree with it.
- Neutron has had a crush and relationship and breakup with Cindy Vortex, while Spongebob has never endured love. Love stories are the best stories.
- Neutron has 4 good friends, Cindy, Libby, Carl, and Sheen, with different personalities instead of just one good friend, Patrick. This proves that there are more, well- developed characters. Instead of just one line characters who appear once and no longer matter.
- Spongebob is aired more than Neutron and will obviously be more vewed. More viewed does not make a better show. There are several factors: audience, time, schedule, number of times aired, etc. Spongebob will logically be more viewed. But let th judges decide whether more views equates to a better show.
- Neutron is obviously the better show.
