Tournament of Muppets: And the winner is… The Tournament of Muppets has come to a close, and after six days of debate and more than 25,000 votes cast, the winner (by a slim margin) is Gonzo the Great. Agree? Disagree? Think it should have been a different Top 2 altogether? Reblog with your opinion or take it to Twitter using the hashtag #muppetbattle. Thanks for following along!

Tournament of Muppets, Day 4 We’ve nearly made it to the final four contenders in our Tournament of Muppets, but to get there, we have to see how the showdowns between Fozzie and Beaker & Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Rizzo and Kermit play out. Who will win? Will a dark horse be a contender for the final 2?

The Tournament of Muppets, Day 2 Pepe the King Prawn was shut out! Dr. Julius Strangepork was shot down! And Animal was defeated by Gonzo, prompting a flurry of reader contempt, disgust and disbelief (and a call for the wild percussionist to be brought back into the ring as a wildcard entry down the road). But what’s most important is that, after yesterday’s Tournament of Muppets debut, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Scooter and the Swedish Chef live to die another day – as does our Tournament of Muppets.
