Tournament of Muppets Reader’s Choice Poll: Who is your pick for Greatest Muppet of All Time?

When we first launched the Tournament of Muppets last week, we had no idea the amount of passion it would spark in all the Jim Henson-ites out there. Were we wrong to eliminate Animal so quickly? Did Beaker deserve a separate post from Dr. Bunsen Honeydew? Did anyone — ever — care about Pepe the King Prawn? Well, now that the Tournament is coming to a close, we’re letting you, dear reader, finally have your say over the entire Muppet enchilada. That’s right, we’ve created a “Reader’s Choice” poll.

Below, you’ll find a poll listing the original 16 bracketed Muppets. While the main poll will tell us who comes out on top in the Post‘s “official” tournament, here’s your chance to pick, among these great Muppet options, your vote for the GREATEST Muppet of all. Choose wisely, and thanks again for following along these past few days.
