It's that time of year again. The calendar is turning to March, which means (hopefully) nicer weather, leprechauns, and brackets, brackets, brackets! In March we all go mad for pitting our favorite things against each other in bracket form, whether it's basketball teams or television shows.

Last year we ran the Buddy Battles, pitting our favorite duos against each other. Unsurprisingly, the huge Supernatural fandom swept the race, putting Dean and Castiel at the top of the pack. 

This year we're doing things a little bit differently. Instead of duos, we're pitting our favorite Scooby gangs against each other. And not only our favorite current Scooby gangs, because we're also going old school. We'll be dividing the gangs into Classic and Current until only one classic gang and one current gang remain to square off. 

For the preliminary round, 10 classic Scooby gangs and 10 current Scooby gangs enter, but only eight of each will move on to the bracket. So make sure to support your favorite! You only get one vote, so make it count!

UPDATE: The polls have closed!

Congrats to all the winners and better luck next time to all the losers. On Monday, 16 Scooby gangs begin to face off to see who will win it all. Until then, keep an eye on BuddyTV over the weekend, where we'll be posting the finalized bracket and the March schedule of showdowns. May the best Scooby gang win! 



How Do We Determine What a Scooby Gang is? 
Well it's not just any group of friends, or you'd see the Gossip Girl gang or the Golden Girls as an option. Instead, a Scooby gang solves mysteries or fights crime. Therefore the Pretty Little Liars are Scoobies because they look for 'A,' but the Greendale gang from Community is not.

You've got a whole week to campaign for your favorites so get to it! Tweet us with #BuddyBattles and tell us why your favorite gang should win. Tell us who you're voting for in the comments and why everyone else should vote for them also. Tell your friends and make sure your favorite gangs make it into the bracket!
