The Great Muppet Tournament – Round 4

It gets uglier and uglier every round. Another 16 beloved characters have fallen. There are now no characters from Fraggle Rock, Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, or any other Jim Henson movie or series. All players left now are from the Muppet Show, and/or Sesame Street, with one notable exception. We have also run out of female players, as Miss Piggy and Janice are now out. And the last characters of unspecified gender didn’t even pass the second round, so all remaining characters are male.

The worst beating in Round 3 was once again because of Kermit, who took down Mahna Mahna / Bip Bippadotta, 62-4. Doot dooo doot doot doo, little buddy.

The closest fight–between Sweetums and Yoda–went back and forth all night and into the day. In the end, Yoda, down by one vote this morning, gained three votes and defeated Sweetums, 36-34. Good night, Sweetums, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest. Please do not eat the angels.

Eliminated in Round 3:
Mahna Mahna / Bip Bippadotta
Lew Zealand
Muppet Newsman
Guy Smiley
Uncle Deadly
Rizzo the Rat
Mr. Aloysius Snuffleupagus
Miss Piggy
Dr. Bunsen Honeydew

Now, let’s whittle this top 16 down to 8.
