The Great Muppet Tournament – Quarterfinals

For two rounds, I was watching and anticipating the great showdown between Yoda and Kermit the Frog. Then Round 4 happened, and the unstoppable froggernaut completely demolished the Jedi Master, 68-9. IPR Yoda.

The real gut-wrenching battle, the one I didn’t expect, was between Caroll Spinney’s two great legacies. At the time I closed polling, Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch were tied at 38 votes each. I cast my tie-breaking vote for the Bird, and so Oscar is out.

Eight contestants remain, four battles. Choose wisely.

Eliminated in Round 4:
Ernie
Grover
Sam the Eagle
Oscar the Grouch
Yoda
Animal
Count von Count
The Swedish Chef
