Random thought: what if you had to choose between Spongebob and Avatar?

Both are very successful American cartoons (cough* or anime, if you're one of those people) with amazing characters, voice actors, and creativity.

So, what's it gonna be?

There's nothing especially distinctive about Spongebob. He's just goofy. We might just as easily have gone nuts for Invader Zim, Fairly Oddparents, or the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. All four of these are excellent shows with brilliant writing and distinctive styles, but in a world where they all exist, losing one is not that big a deal.

Avatar, on the other hand, dealt sensitively with all kinds of issues around race and gender and nationality and even disabilities. Plus it was very technically astute about the portrayal of its martial arts. There's really nothing else that compares with it.

IMO, there's no contest. Avatar is way better. In fairness, though, they aren't really comparable in the first place. One is an episodic comedy, the other is one drawn-out story.

I'm not sure whether to be mad about you saying that losing Invader Zim wouldn't be a big deal or agree with you for saying that it has brilliant writing and a distinctive style...

SpongeBob movie starred David Hasselhoff. Last Avatar movie made people regret being born. I think it speaks for itself.

Avatar as long as I never have to see Legend of Korra again and can erase it from my memory.

Avatar is legendary, it's in it's own standalone legacy. Nothing I can imagine would be able to knock it down from it.

Spongebob is just comedy and it hasn't been as funny since maybe like 2003? Maybe? I still watch it cause they still play the old episodes and I get bored easily and I like the old comedy here and there.

If they still played Avatar, I'd be watching that there is no tomorrow.
