This is a really tough one, but I'll have to represent not-as-good-as-the-intro 80s live action with Knight Team.

Building a bracket for this is going to be more difficult than anticipated. If I've counted right, there were 128 entries! One online bracket maker rejected my entry outright, claiming there was too much to process. At least I had the good sense to save what I typed...

This is what I could put together with the tools on hand. The themes eliminated on the first round aren't represented... it would have been much too large otherwise. If there are any major errors, let me know, but I think this is correct.

By the way, the blank template came from the Print Your Brackets web site, although that should probably be evident from the title on the bottom.

Oh, man, thanks. I was going to do it but I dreaded putting in the work, let me tell you. I'll have to try Print Your Bracket next time. That's really cool, Arugula!

No biggie, I didn't have anything better to do. Plus you've invested a lot of time in this already.

I'll tighten this up for better readability when the winner is announced... although I have a feeling I already know where this is going.

And the winner is.... The Muppet Show Theme!




Frankly, I'm a pretty big muppet fan. I sometimes sing my niece to sleep with "The Rainbow Connection" and "I'm Going to Go Back There Some Day."

I forget, with regular Thunderdomes, is it the top four or two we save to say "these can't be nominated again?" Whatever, I'll figure it out.

Anyway, I want to thank everyone who nominated, voted and all around participated and helped make this a lot of fun to do. Lots of great nominations all over and everyone should be happy with their noms and choices. Hopefully, I'll host again some day, as I have ideas for other Thunderdomes in all sorts of mediums (granted, some might be harder sells than others...) I hope you guys had a lot of fun, too.

Next, Juno is hosting a "Towns" Thunderdome which is, as I understand it, music in video game towns. Looking forward to it.

STATLER: Well, I can't believe this poll is over
WALDORF: Well, I can't believe this show won
STATLER: Yeah, people think there are at least 63 worse shows than this one
WALDORF: I'm still not convinced there's even 1!
BOTH: DOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO
