Ewoks vs. Hobbits
#1 Ewoks are better in a fight. They took out Imperial Stormtroopers with nothing more than rocks and logs and a bunch of slingshots. Then they used their helmets as bongo drums during the big victory celebration. Hobbits? They pretty much cower in fear at any sign of danger and often attract that danger by making too much noise.
#2 Ewoks live in beautiful treehouse cities with giant wooden bridges that run from tree to tree. It's the kind of thing you wish you'd built with your Dad in your backyard and aspire to build as an adult. Hobbits? They live in holes. In the ground.
#3 Ewoks are born leaders. The rebels, including a Jedi, land on Endor and they are guided on their journey by the Ewoks. That's right, they lead a Jedi. Hobbits? They just follow along behind the brave, all powerful Fellowship, trying to sneak a snack and doing lots of nothing.
I know that this isn't a popular opinion, but it's the right one. Feel free to leave a comment and try to prove otherwise. Ewoks FTW!
