We’ve made it to the Elite Eight and I can’t believe some of you have continued to follow this tournament. All four games were played according to schedule, so I’ll give a brief recap of each.
#1 Mickey Mouse Clubhouse defeated #5 Little Einsteins: LE played well enough to beat any one of the remaining teams except MMCH, but it was a great run by the 5-seed to make it this far. MMCH proved too dominant for the nerds.
#2 Octonauts defeated #3 Sofia the First: This one was a defensive struggle as Hurricane was hesitant to select a winner until ultimately deciding that Octonauts was the superior team.
#5 Thomas and Friends defeated #1 Jake and the Never Land Pirates: A truly stunning upset of epic proportions as the Thomas withstood a late charge from Jake and crew to advance to the Final Four.
#2 Ella the Elephant defeated #3 Sheriff Callie’s Wild West: A showdown for sure, Ella’s size wore down Sheriff Callie’s bunch in the final few minutes.
So we’ve whittled our way from 16 teams to four, with both games scheduled to begin around noon time tomorrow.
Here’s a look at the updated bracket.
Mickey Mouse will take on Octonauts in the first game while up upstart Thomas and Friends will go head-to-head with Ella and Elephant.
Thomas and Friends is a surprising favorite while Mickey Mouse is favored and remains the front-runner to win it all.
