Baby Animal March Squee Madness!

After 4 days, 382 votes, and at least 15 arguments about how the hedgehog was robbed, I give you the 2012 March Squee Champion: PIGGEH!

The little pink bit of adorableness beat Siku the polah bear by 34 votes (27%) and joins last year’s champion, Butterstick the panda, on my Wall of Squee. Congratulations, little guy!

Thanks to everyone who voted, cheered, ridiculed, and of course SQUEEed through the last week – it was a blast. We’re already compiling competitors for next year!



Posted March 22, Round 3 summary:

Well folks, it’s come down to this:

Representing the Western Conference, weighing in at 60 pounds, we have the hope of the Great White North: The polah bear. He enjoys snow, ice, swimming, and devouring seals. He battles our Eastern Conference champion: Piggeh. Weighing a massive 5 pounds, this tough little guy enjoys making friends with spiders, and occasionally hunting for truffles. Who will be Squee Champion?! You have until 9:00p EDT to decide!

Posted March 21, Round 2 summary:

Round 2 was intense! Two contests narrowly avoided ties by 2 points each; sloth vs. penguin, and pygmy goat vs. red panda. I really thought the pygmy goat was going to advance, but in the last 20 minutes, the red panda had a surge of votes. The pink-tongued white bear handily beat the koala, and the biggest win was by that adorable pink bit of piggeh over our only underwater creature, the hippo. As a side note, I feel the need to point out that all of the animals in the Final 4 start with letter P! Now, decide the final matchup, vote immediately! Or at least before 9:00p EDT!

It’s March Madness time, which, for those of us who care nothing for basketball, means it’s time for the Baby Animal March Squee Madness Bracket!!! This year’s finals will happen over 4 days (a change from last year’s single-day event).

Because I realize it’s hard to fully appreciate the baby animal cuteness in those small photos, here’s a look at the competitors:

    The big question is are we working only off of the photos provided, or everything we know about and all photos we have ever seen, of said animal?

    Thanks boss lady

    I feel like I’ve been robbed.

    Sloth will be in every Squee Tournament for the rest of my days. Maybe next year he’ll get a handicap, like being in sloth jammies, or being matched up in the first round with a ringer.

  5. Katherine says:

    The baby sloth squeeness is really best highlighted in video. In a video bracket, sloth would take it, easy.

    • Jennifer says:

      Very true. Let’s start keeping a list for a video bracket (if I ever figure out how to make one). We’re also considering an Interspecies Friends bracket. Suggestions are welcome!

    Maybe an animated gif bracket? There is a *ton* of animated squee out there already on the intertubes!
