Muppet Madness 2012 Tournament!

    There are a lot of things I wish went the other way. For example (s)
    I'd rather Jack Black win over Neil Patrick Harris but that's not getting anywhere, it seems that people are voting for the character, not on the character in the movie. I guess more people like N.P.H. but he was seen in the movie for what two seconds?
    Also: Alan Arkin: He was great in the movie, but Mickey Rooney is more loved by people.
    Kermit vs. The Chef. Come on people, the frog can't always win! I think it's the more casual fans voting for Kermit. (Or people don't like the chef, we'll find out next round).
    Mary vs. Miss Poogy: I voted for Miss Poogy but people like Mary better. I guess it's just me.
    And last but not least why does everyone always forget about Hobo Joe? :) I think if they would have put Hobo Joe vs. someone like Tex Richman or 80's Robot he would have got a round farther. Against Walter is a joke. Walter will take everyone in that category.

    Turned in my bracket today. My final 4 is Walter, Jim Parsons, Kermit, and Uncle Deadly. I'm going to win this contest!

    Yaay! Another vote for Thog!
    That's the thing: Everyone loves Neil Patrick Harris. Really, wouldn't surprise me all that much if he'd win the whole thing. (Doubt that's going to happen, but you never know...)
    I don't know, I kind of think it's the obssessed fans that are voting for Kermit. From experience, I've found that way more casual fans who don't know that much about the Muppets know who the Swedish Chef is because of how memorable his appearances are. I wouldn't be surprised of people are voting for Kermit because they think that's how it should be, that Kermit, the most popular Muppet wins.
    I've been torn on that one. I feel like I should be voting for Mary since she's on the Muppets' side, but then I almost want to vote for as many Muppets as I can to ensure a human doesn't win.

    Turned in mine awhile back... I think it is Kermit and Walter with Walter for the win

    No one's said this yet, so I'll say it: Round two voting has begun!

    (sighs) Thog lost. I'm happy for Jerry Nelson's voice, though. I hope he continues. Doubt I'm going to launch another campaign unless Thog would be brought back in a resurrection round. The only other character I'd have really campaigned for would be Link.

    Which speaking of, I really hope there is a resurrection round! Please consider it!

    To be honest I was really stumped as far as voting between Gonzo and Miss Piggy in this film so I just avoided that one, lol.

    Gary is losing to 80s robot? Come on its Jason Segel....he's like our hero now..... how can he lose to 80s robot

    Sorry to come in two days slow... Blame it on the rabbit's watch. It was an unbirthday present you know.

    If 80s Robot does win, it makes it that much easier for people to vote in Round 3 for Walter, since we're all Walters.
    *Insert new Walter smilie that was made the other day, I'm still waiting for it to be added properly to MC's cash.

    Don't care about the Celebrities regional.

    The Classics region, Kermit vs. Animal; Gonzo vs. Bunsen and Beaker. That's gonna be a trainwreck.

    As for the Returning Favorites regional...
    Go Scooter! Or Jerry's Voice!

    And of corpse, my own personal campaign...
    Uncle Deadly: You will vote for me.
    I will beat :sympathy:, even if I don't have a smilie of mine own.
    The streak will live!
    :batty: :scary: Vote for Deadly! ! !

    If Deadly wins this round, and the results still stay the same as they are right now, I will still have a perfect bracket!

    GAH! This is getting rather predictable as far as the winning result...me thinks...although Gonzo may still stump Kermit, or Kermit may still stump Walter (or 80's Robot may get a sudden rush of votes in round three).

    Anyway, I am honestly voting Kermit this year purely based on his performance in the movie meaning that he deserves it. Previous years I voted against him because he always wins those kinds of things.

    I'm extremely disappointed that Piggy didn't pull it out over Gonzo. Gonzo is my favorite character, but... Piggy was just so great in that movie. I feel as though people really are voting on a general basis of of preference of the character, rather than their performance in the movie. Ah, well.

    Didn't do a bracket, but yeah, this is - deservedly - Walter's.

    Round 3 is up, and we can now vote every six hours. The matchups:
    Walter vs. '80s Robot
    Kermit vs. Gonzo
    Neil Patrick Harris vs. Jim Parsons
    Rowlf vs. Scooter

    Not that I'd be so low as to try to influence anyone, but if Scooter makes it past this round I will make available the clip of Scooter & Kermit hosting the Academy Awards that was taken down from Youtube. I snagged it out of my cache because it amused me, and I just found the disc I saved it on.

    Only bad people vote against Scooter.

    Yeah... Rooting for Scooter. Not that I hate Rowlf, he's a great character... But in competitions like these, you as a fan of a particular team/character want to see whoever knocked out your representative be eliminated in due turn.

    So let's go Scooter... Nerds unite!
    BTW: Kim, I'm surprised noone's gone to the RHLC thread and gotten those bums (;)) to pool everything they've got for their main gofer.

    I'm amazed by the Parsons/NPH race. It's one of the closest matches ever in these tourneys. Pulling for Parsons, but we'll see what happens.
  17. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    No! The Musicmeister must win!
    :D :halo: :cool: :sing: :flirt:

    Also in his favor is... He's got shoes for you! So vote for Dr. Howser, MD!
  18. Bannanasketch

    Bannanasketch Well-Known Member

    Vote for Jim Parsons! Seriously, I will quite possibly lose this competition if he loses! Seriously, GO VOTE FOR HUMAN WALTER!

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Why? It's not like you've got a Sheet of Muppetigrity bracket wager going, is it?

    NPH for the win!
  20. Bannanasketch

    Bannanasketch Well-Known Member

    Parsons had such a better role, though. I mean seriously, NPH had like 8 seconds of screentime.
