Thank you, fellow 'Cloids for a stellar two week run at this completely irrelevant yet necessary exercise.
We are sort of where we thought we would be. I did have more than several predictions of a Looney Tunes vs. Simpsons final, and that's still a very good possibility. What we didn't see coming was a 13-seed crashing the party. I would have accepted Futurama in the Final Four two weeks ago, but when it was nominated over and run down to the 13 line, I didn't see it getting the better of Transformers and most definitely not Animaniacs. What we learned was that the show has a strong enough following that even though it didn't get voted up into single-digit seed lines...it could outlast some of the giants.
The Simpsons could have very well been a number one seed, so it's almost chalk in the Final Four save for Futurama.
Looney Tunes continued their run, gaining the most votes in the Animated Eight of any show.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles proved to us that cool toys, video games, and comic books aren't the only important nostalgia factors. Transformers, Thundercats, and Dragonball all had the toys, video games, comic books (or Manga), bed sheets, you name it to accompany or even precede the shows and they gone. TMNT and its two subsequent return series were all great shows. That theme song though...top three for sure.
Here's the Final Four Bracket. use this thread to trash talk or make predictions in advance of the match ups tomorrow.
