I'm boycotting this for you excluding Archimedes, the owl from Sword in the Stone!

[-] [email protected] 57 points 2 months ago

What do you mean I wasn't included??

[-] [email protected] 10 points 2 months ago

Who who? What what?

[-] [email protected] 7 points 2 months ago

I never saw this until a few years ago, just missed it somehow as a kid so I watched it one day. For a cartoon owl, I feel they nailed the attitude pretty well with this guy.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

It's based off the first section of the book Once and Future King by T. H. White. An amazing book, can't recommend it enough.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

He has the most epic laugh!

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

Junius Matthews FTW!

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

Exactly should be the top owl.

This halftime show accepts ~~walk-ons~~ fly-ons. An upvote is an upvote.

Next year you should do a full out fictional owl bracket. That would be cute and v fun

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

With all these extra owls that people are posting I just might. I didn't realize I'd left so many out.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

What until the Guardians of Ga'hoole people show up!

Owls have been such a great symbolic and mythological creature for just about every civilization for tensnof thousands of years. I thought 250 real owls was way too many! 😉

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

Like Matt Damon?

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

And then the year after that, pair real owls with fictional owls for a 2v2 bracket

Soon the superbowl will be asking you to do an ad spot on the far more popular seasonal event

[-] [email protected] 4 points 2 months ago

Same! Very disappoint!

Owl from Winnie the Pooh vs Hedwig from Harry Potter

Vote here for Owl

Owl is an anthropomorphic owl who first appeared in Disney's animated short Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree. Owl's character is based on the stereotype of the "wise old owl", though his "wisdom" is sometimes questionable.

Bubo the Owl from Clash of the Titans vs Mr. Owl from Tootsie Pops

Vote here for Mr. Owl

In the original television ad, a questioning boy (voiced by Buddy Foster) proposes the question to a cow (voiced by Frank Nelson), a fox (voiced by Paul Frees), a turtle (voiced by Ralph James) and an owl (voiced by Paul Winchell). Each one of the first three animals tells the kid to ask someone else, explaining that they would bite a Tootsie Pop every time they lick one. Eventually, he asks the owl, appearing wise, who offers to investigate. He starts licking the orange Tootsie Pop, but bites into it after only three licks. The child walks away, saying to himself, "If there's anything I can't stand, it's a smart owl." The commercial ends the same way, with various flavored Tootsie Pops unwrapped and being "licked away" until being crunched in the center with Herschel Bernardi asking, "How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie pop? The world may never know."

Wow, nothing about Bubo? My man got the eye from the witches, saved Perseus, and helped him defeat the Kraken. He’s a hero. Mr. Owl just ate some candy.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

Can you believe how little screen time they gave Bubo in the remake?! The single biggest mistake they made, and by the gods, they made a few

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

Bubo’s entry is farther down the comments. He currently only has one upvote so if you would like to support him send some love his way.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

I see, thank you.

Bubo the Owl from Clash of the Titans vs Mr. Owl from Tootsie Pops

Vote here for Bubo

Bubo was forged by Hephaestus and sent by Athena to aid Perseus in his quest to save the princess Andromeda in the original 1981 film.

After losing Athena’s helmet in Calibos’ swamp, Zeus orders Athena to give Perseus her owl, Bubo, as a replacement. She refuses, but agrees to have Hephaestus build a clockwork copy of Bubo to aid Perseus on his quest. Bubo helps him overcome numerous enemies, but not without a little fumbling on his part..

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 months ago

Bubo is my go to, I can't even help it, it's just involuntary at this point. I watched that so much as a kid and plenty times more as an adult.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

Fuck yeah, another Clash of the Titans kid! We had this on repeat so often growing up, haha

[-] [email protected] 22 points 2 months ago

Vote here for Hooty from the Owl House (he also barges in when he wasn’t included)

[-] [email protected] 14 points 2 months ago
[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 months ago

The most superb owl of them all.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 months ago

Hootsifer!!

[-] [email protected] 17 points 2 months ago

Wan Shi Tong, the spirit of knowledge (Avatar TLA), should not only get a spot, he should win the whole contest!

[-] [email protected] 12 points 2 months ago

I'm partial to The Great Owl from The Secret of NIHM.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 2 months ago

Not even the owl from Zelda?

[-] [email protected] 8 points 2 months ago

If we're throwing owls in, then I submit to you David Bowie in Labyrinth. He's an owl and he's the goblin king; what's not to love?

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

Got my vote.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 2 months ago

I like this owl personally:

Cover of the book entitled 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark featuring a baby owl in a tree.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

I had the audiobook for that, and the EEEEYYEEEEK from the narrator was perfect

[-] [email protected] 7 points 2 months ago

Y'all are sleeping on the great horned owl that appears briefly at the end of the last episode of Twin Peaks season one

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 months ago

The owls are not what they seem.

Owl from Winnie the Pooh vs Hedwig from Harry Potter

Vote here for Hedwig

Hedwig (d. 27 July 1997) was Harry Potter's pet female snowy owl. Hedwig was an eleventh birthday gift from Rubeus Hagrid to Harry. Hagrid purchased her at the Eeylops Owl Emporium.

In addition to delivering mail, the typical use owls are put to, Hedwig was also a close companion to Harry. She remained one of his closest friends right up to her death during the Battle of the Seven Potters at the height of the Second Wizarding War.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 months ago

I honestly care more about this than the super bowl.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 2 months ago

Hedwig for sure, she died for Harry’s sins of being the dumbest fucker at Hogwarts

[-] [email protected] 4 points 2 months ago

You have put me in an impossible position! I can't decide between Owl and Hedwig!

Where my Ookpik homies at?

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

OMG, I just realized I'm subbed to Kayaking and Birding communities. I was groomed by a Snowy Owl, must be a rather Superbowl at that.

The owl from Blade Runner:

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

I vote for Owl and Owl.

Owl for his intelligence. Owl for his logic.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

Where are The Guardians?

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

where’s my boy Woodsy? give a hoot, don’t pollute!
