March Madness has been in Full Swing, and while we here at the Kabaret know that March is almost gone for another year, our version of March Madness, or rather ‘A Very Merry Un-March Madness’ is still in full swing. Here are the match ups for round two!
This first set of 16 teams in the tournament is the Disney characters from members of the fab 5 to the vilest villains. Lets break down the results of round one and the new match ups for round two!
Number 1 seed Mickey’s Mouseketeers easily wiped the floor with Cruella DeVil’s Spots’ by a massive 94 points to 6. That Means that Mickey Mouse will face off against number 2 seed Rapunzel and her team the ‘Golden Flowers’ . Rapunzel knocked off the number 15 seed of Gaston’s Paragons.
Next up we had Mary Poppin’s Jolly Holiday (14) winning out over Tinkerbell’s Pixie Dust (3) to move on to round two. The Jolly Holiday’s will be up against Cinderella’s Magic Pumpkins (4) who took out the Seven Dwarf’s Diamond Miners (13) in the first round.

The final match up for round two of the Disney bracket will be between Genie’s Cave of Wonders(10) and Maleficent’s Green Flames (8). This means that Jiminy Cricket’s Wishes (7) and the Queen of Heart’s Cards (9) are no longer in the running!

The final bracket set has Buzz Lightyear and the Mrs. Nesbitt’s (10) beating Russel’s Wilderness Explorers (7) and Lotso and His Hugging Bears (8) beating out Mike’s Mob (9)
The Marvel bracket combines the characters we know from the recent film franchise with classics from the comic worlds. And in this bracket it seems the predictions for who is the best of the best were pretty spot on as the only seed from 1-8 not advancing to the next round is Dr. Doom (4). So lets break down round one and who you have to vote for in round two.
Our number 1 seed was Captain America’s Patriots. Cap was matched against, and defeated, the Punisher’s Vengeance (16) Cap will face off against Groot’s Floral Colossi (2) after the giant defeated Magneto’s Magnetism (15).
Up Next the Hulk’s Smashers (3) easily took out Venom’s Villainy (14) and Dr. Strange’s Phenomenon (13) crushed Dr. Doom’s Lightning (4). That has Hulk and Dr. Strange facing off for the next round.
Spidey and the Web Heads (5) took out the Silver Surfur’s Cosmic Rays (12) and will face off against the Black Widow’s Bite (6) after she eliminated Star Lord’s Guardians (11) in round one.
Finally Iron Man’s Expos (7) won out over Logan’s Wolverine’s (10) Stark will face off against fellow Avenger Thor and Thor’s Hammers (8) after the team defeated the Green Goblin’s Pumpkin Bombs (9).
So who are you rooting for in the next round?
The Star Wars side of things had a couple of upsets, and it looks like round two will be even more exciting!
Darth Vader’s number 1 seed Death Stars easily eliminated Jin’s 87s (16) to advance to round two. He will be facing Princess Leia’s Alderaanians (2), who eliminated Jabba’s Hutts (15). It seems like Jabba will never beat Leia for long!
Luke Skywalker’s Kyber Crystals (3) easily eliminated C3P0’s Protocol Droids (14), but in another Jedi/Droid matchup, R2D2’s Astromechs (13) knocked Yoda’s Jedi Masters(4) out of contention! So Luke will go against R2 in round 2.
In a match up of Rebel vs. Empire the Stormtroopers (5) pulled out a win against Jin’s Rebel Alliance (12). They will be matched against Rey’s Resistance (11) who won in a surprising upset against 6th seeded Boba Fett’s Bounty Hunters.
This last set of matches will make round two very interesting. Han Solo’s Falcons (7) easily took out Darth Maul’s Dual Sabers (10) and Chewbacca’s Co-Pilots crushed Kylo Ren’s Knights (8) Which means the dynamic duo will be facing off against each other in the next round!
So those are the results of round on, stay tuned for more match ups on twitter in the next two weeks!
