Every once in awhile, well-known Muppet fans get together and toss around ideas and something really amazing and fun happens. The Muppet Madness Tournament is one of those things. From the minds of Joe Hennes and Ryan Roe over at ToughPigs and Steve Swanson from The MuppetCast (along with the talented pen of everyone’s favorite fan artist, Dave Hulteen, Jr.), comes this fantastic spin on the March Madness college basketball craze.
Starting yesterday, Muppet fans have been able to vote in Round 1 of this madcap contest of Muppet on Muppet action. Pitting Kermit against Gonzo, Sprocket against Junior Gorg, Grover against Cookie Monster, Baby Sinclair against Skeeter, The Muppet Madness Tournament is a chance for Muppet fans to pick the best Muppet (democratically, of course). The contest lasts until April 5 and you can vote once every 12 hours.
So what are you waiting for? Get yourself over to the bracket and start busing it with your votes! (Please don’t literally bust it.) Help bring your favorite Muppet to the Final Four or even the championship round. And you thought college basketball was exciting! Puh-lease!
