Spongebob is a hundred times better than Dora because he is very funny and doesnt let people annoy him when they say mean comments. He shows great work authenticity by loving where he works and always being there (good example)

Better in what way? If by "better", you mean better at teaching our kids to be obedient servants to the greedy, power hungry corporate offices. If by "better", you mean better at teaching our children to lay down and take every insult without sticking up for himself, then I would agree.

Spongebob is the epitome of the mindless worker. Educated enough to enjoy his mediocre house in a mediocre neighborhood, but not enough to realize that he is being used by the greedy Mr. Krabs.

Dora teaches our children logic as well as the basics of the Spanish language. This alone is reason enough to see that Dora is better than Spongebob.

No, i mean better as in "he doesn't care what others think he is happy as ever and goes on with his life and learn to ignore ignorant peoples comments." Dora on the other hand teaches kids nothing i mean what kid at the age of like 4 is gonna know whats shes saying? None. They barely know their English.

I can see that is one possible way to view it.

Children are capable of learning multiple languages by the age of 5.

Also, children can start creating sentences as early as 2 years old.

As you can see, children are capable of learning not only their English at four years old, but their Spanish as well.

' Some Children ' Not all. What about children with learning disabilities? They wouldn't even understand. Now Spongebob they would understand clearly all children would. Its an easy good show to comprehend for all ages.
Kc3d

Con

The majority of children are forming sentences by 3 years of age.

A child who could not comprehend Dora could not possibly be expected to comprehend Spongebob.
Dora is targeted at a younger audience than Spongebob.

Dora is tailored to educate our children. Spongebob is tailored to entertain.

Surely, we can agree that education is far superior to entertainment when it comes to our children.

Reasons for voting decision: Spelling and grammar goes to Con, as I barely comprehended what Pro was trying to say. Arguments to Con, because Pro did not meet her BoP, but Con met his. Sources to Con because he actually had them.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's arguments were barely coherent, in this excuse for a debate. Con provided sources, and better reasoning for Dora being a better show than spongebob. Maybe spongebob is more entertaining, but in all aspects, con proved that Dora is more educational, and fun for kids. Anyways, be dilligently to work everyday means nothing for spongebob. He works in a fast food restaurant. That in and of itself is a horrible value for children to learn...
