Who’s your favorite Pixar Character? Vote Now!

Pixar castYesterday, Lauren wrapped up Flashback/Backslide’s Pixar Blogathon with a great review of Monster’s University (check it out! she broke down the factors that make sequels great or forgettable). Now that our second Blogathon is in the books, we wanted to hear from you all and help decide which Pixar character is your favorite.

There were plenty of characters to choose from but Lauren and I trimmed the list to 32 contestants who we arranged in the bracket below. We tried to spread the love around to as best we could. All fifteen films are represented with at least one character (only Brave features one character, all the others put out two). The Toy Story Series series dominates with seven total characters (though five of them are low seeds and four face off in round one). The Incredibles comes in next with four participants. You can thank Lauren for there being only four characters. I was ready to add ten people from that movie. Lauren also appropriately blocked my inclusion of Hal the Cockroach from WALL-E. If I had my way, Hal would be in, both Cars characters would be out, and all four #1 seeds would be Incredibles. In the end, the top seeds go to Sheriff Woody from the Toy Story Series, Sulley from the Monsters Inc. Series, Nemo from Finding Nemo, and Joy from the newest Pixar film Inside Out.

Check out the bracket below and vote for your favorite character in each matchup. Rounds will last one day. Round 2 will start tomorrow evening.

          • Lol. Our current James Bond tourney has some pretty lopsided matches in round 1 but I think it will pick up steam as we go. Some of the choices in your Pixar game were very easy for me. Others were harder. These things tend to lead to harder choices the deeper you go. If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be Dory. I also have a sentimental attachment to Jessie.


            • I don’t have as much attachment to James Bond as our other writer Lauren (she’s spearheading our Spectre coverage and James Bond week coming up). That might be why I think the matchups are tough for me (But I’m pulling for Goldeneye).


            • I expect GoldenEye to make it to the final four at least. I actually moved the Brosnan movies out of the way of the Craig movies to make sure GoldenEye didn’t get steamrolled by Casino Royale.

              I look forward to your Bond coverage. I’m a 007 nut.
