I realize there's been a long hiatus since my last post about the Cartoon Bracket. It was my intention to comment on every round and give my analysis as the tournament progressed. But, as I'm sure many of you know, life doesn't allow for your best laid plans. So now I'm here to offer my final thoughts as the tournament just wrapped up.
In case you didn't see, Mickey Mouse ended up taking the crown. It was a close final match with Bugs Bunny, with Mickey winning by a single vote. I have to say that I'm quite surprised by this outcome. At the beginning of the tournament I would not have guessed that Mickey would have even made it to the final. My pre-tournament prediction was Bugs vs. Scooby Doo. Apparently I underestimated the power of the mouse. Some have accused me of rigging the tournament knowing my affection for all things Disney. Let me refute that right now. While I do have a love for Disney, if I were to rig the tournament it would be Goofy winning, not Mickey. Goofy is my favorite cartoon character and I was secretly pulling for him during the tournament. But I'm glad to see Mickey win. He is a classic and iconic cartoon character.
I've already started thinking about next year's bracket, but if you have any suggestions feel free to let me know. And thanks to all who voted this year!
