2020 Bracket Battle: Reviver Edition - The Battle of the 32 is Upon Us!

Level 12

2020 Bracket Battle: Reviver Edition is underway, and the Mama play-in face-off is complete!

We started this year with a gut-punch of a match up. @yumdarling, of THWACK community management fame, wanted me to make sure that everyone knows she believes kicking off with a battle of animated mothers deserves a stern “mom look” and a defiant “tsk tsk.”

Parents have never had an easy road when it comes to animated features – but mothers, in particular, seem highly prone to misfortune. ‘Tis a shame as I think we can all agree that both of these baby boys, Bambi and Littlefoot, would have benefitted from just a bit more time with their loving mamas. Alas, only one can survive the match up to face another day.

In this epic battle for supremely sad, emphatically emotional, and dastardly disturbing deaths, the winner of the play-in round is...

Littlefoot's mom!


She barely has a moment to breathe before her next match-up against Mufasa commences. The battle of the 32 is up upon us!

We have pulled together an impressive list of pairings that await your verdicts. From sidekicks and loyal companions, to heart-throbs and leading ladies, there is something for everyone to debate in this next round. Place your votes now!

See y’all in the comments section. Anyone want to predict who the final victor will be?

I'll go with Mufasa

No points for voting this year? Was that feature removed with the new platform for the site?

Otherwise, I still enjoy it and thanks for giving us a little "extra" to get involved with during these difficult times. Could have brought ESPN in on it so they had something to broadcast. 😉 


Also, Ned Stark for the win.

Let me know if you need anything else.

@yumdarling  I didn't notice. My apologies, I should have checked point history. I think before it was instantly after voting. Appreciate the follow up!



About the Author
I am not a native of the Geek Kingdom, but I have been granted permanent legal resident status.  I find your culture intriguing and seek to study it closely so that I might help the rest of the world better understand your needs, motivations, and strange rituals. Somewhere in 1997, I discovered that I possess a pretty decent ability to take complex, technical "mumbo-jumbo" and explain it to anybody's grandmother.  Thus, a career was born.  And now, I run SolarWinds' corporate marketing and PR programs.  (So, if you are ever struck with a sudden and pressing need to declare your undying love of SolarWinds to a Network World reporter, feel free to call me.  I can make that dream happen.) I married a geek and am pretty sure that our two boys are already displaying the tell-tale signs of geek.  And while I have been known to kid about those with a professed love of technology...  it has changed my life for the better.  And no, Spock is not a superhero.
