Nickelodeon's Awkward Athletes: Doug Vs. Arnold

Who wins the epic battle of pubescent Caucasian cartoons?

Posted on

Basketball

Forget the fact that Arnold is only allowed to pass to the coach's son — he shows no enthusiasm on the bench. Doug drains an underhand free throw for the win. Plus, check out his fly footwear!

ADVANTAGE: Doug

Diving

Here we have Doug showcasing his trademarked awkwardness with a bland and unmemorable pencil dive, while Arnold explodes off the diving board with an effortless backflip.

ADVANTAGE: Arnold

Fishing

They both catch and release legendary mythical fish. However, Doug imagined his to be a lot bigger than it really was (typical), while Arnold and Gerald caught the real deal.

ADVANTAGE: Arnold

Winner: Arnold

His untucked shirt may look like a skirt, and his weird hair makes it hard to take him seriously, but make no mistake about it: Arnold's a baller. (In the sports sense, not the rapper sense.)
