The winner of this matchup is "Pizza Pilot", which got 2 votes. "Pizza Friday" got 1 vote. The next matchup is between the Looney Tunes short "Invasion Of The Bunny Snatchers" and the Mickey Mouse short "Runaway Brain".
Both episodes are tied with 2 votes each. I'll be tiebreaker, and pick "Francine" to move to the next round. The next matchup is Pizza Time. We have the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles short "Pizza Friday" and the 1st episode of Ollie And Scoops called "Pizza Pilot".
With Big Hero 6 The Series ending on February 15 and the last stretch of DuckTales episodes coming out starting February 22, it means that (unless Amphibia and The Owl House move there), there won't be any original programming for Disney XD. There's probably some 3rd party acquisitions like anime, but that's it.
