I as the nagative in this case believe that tellitubbies should not be banned for th following reasons.

1. children enjoy watching these small colourful beings dance around on screen and have fun and playing with each other.

2. Children aren't really affected by the playing that happens on screen and children quickly grow out of this fun show as they start to grow and change.

I thank my opponent for the debate and shall offer my rebuttal.

There are two parts to th resolution:

1. Teletubbies should be banned
2. Short arguments only

I believe that Teletubbies should be banned for other groups except children. For example: Religious cults that find Teletubbies to be blasphemous to their religion.

Furthermore, I believe that only sort arguments are acceptable in this debate as there is a 500 character limit.

Thus, I have filled my burden. Thank you, vote

thank you vey much for your argument but now i shall rebutt

well these cults who find teletubbies blasphemous don't have to let their children watch it or watch it themselves.

My next argument is that teletubbies are fun bundles of joy that children love and admire and to take that away from children that would be just wrong

Thankyou
Kleptin

Pro

I thank my opponent for his response.

Teletubbies should be banned by Anti-Teletubby cults not for the children, but for the adult members.

Furthermore, Teletubbies themselves are noisy, nosy, and hard to take care of. They also frolic too much. They should be banned from government institutions, offices, hospitals, and other places, so that they do not disturb serious work.

My opponent has not addressed the "short arguments only" part of the resolution.

Vote PRO.

I swear, 500 character debates are really odd. I proof-read my argument and it seems that letters got extracted and the end got cut off.
