Pets Rule is a great show to go and see if you've got some spare time, Nemo on the other hand is a must see every time you're at AK - making that my vote.

I wasn't that impressed by Nemo, but it still trumps Pets Rule. PR, while pretty good, is just another animal trick show at a park filled with those. I didn't find it particularly remarkable versus other pet shows in other parks. Nemo, on the other hand, pales in comparison to Aladdin but is still solid for a theme park show in general.

Its a big blue world out there for Nemo to win!

Its really a great show with singing, effects, and puppets! Very good and probably one of the few musicals the kiddies will sit completly through!

While I voted for the underdog, Pets Rule, I'd have to say I enjoyed what I saw online of Finding Nemo. I'm a huge fan of the Pixar film too. But I have a special place in my heart for Pets Rule as all of the animals are rescued. It proves that the so-called-forgotten and unruly animals can be re-habbed into more civilized, socialized, and healthy animals. And as much as I love fish and sea life (I spend hours every week in the ocean), Pets Rule has real live animals as opposed to puppets (phenomenal actors btw).

No contest here. Although the original music in Finding Nemo is underwhelming, Pets Rule feels like a live action America's Funniest Home Videos skit.

Nemo FTW.

If I wanted to watch Stupid Pet Tricks, I'd just tune in to Letterman.
