There's no denying that "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer is entertaining, popular, and passionate. On many occasions, he's even right. So he's smart, funny, and the closest thing to a stock market rock star -- but is he smarter than you?

Cramming for Cramer
The Fool's free investing community, Motley Fool CAPS, aggregates the opinion of more than 130,000 members to assign ratings for each stock's likelihood of outperforming or underperforming the market.

Below, we look at some top stocks that Cramer picked and panned during last week's "lightning rounds," and compare them to how the CAPS community sees their future.

Cramer says
Even the toy industry couldn't make merry last Christmas, which is one reason why Jim Cramer likes it now. He believes that the markets are giving up on the sector, and that's driving the valuations of toy companies such as Hasbro to new lows. Shares are trading at under $22 a stub these days, and Cramer thinks that's a fine price to play with. If they dip lower, he says, buy more!

I like Hasbro... I like Hasbro, 52 week low... everyone is giving up on the toy business... it is way, way too low... I think that this is a decent level to get some of the stock... get a little bit here, and then it goes under $20... buy a little more.

CAPS says
Some 92% of those rating Hasbro mark it to outperform, despite the difficult Christmas season, one which saw the toymaker engage in some heavy discounting of its products. The Motley Fool Stock Advisor recommendation is now sitting with inventory consisting of its top-name toys, such as Star Wars, Iron Man, and Littlest Pet Shop. Management is confident that the impact of its promotional activities will be only short-term in nature.

Hasbro is also trying to leverage its playpen of toy brands into box-office success. Taking a page from Marvel's playbook, as my colleague Rick Aristotle Munarriz argues, Hasbro looks to generate outsize profit by using toys such as its Transformers and G.I. Joe lines as the basis for summer blockbusters.

Also, while CAPS member FitzColinGerald acknowledges the increased costs that will be associated with imported toys this year -- 80% of all toys sold in the U.S. are made in China -- he still finds it to be a fiscally fit company:

Who can honestly say they never played with a Cabbage Patch Kid or a NERF football? Even though this company will inevitably suffer in times of increased import costs, the upside is still worth considering. Its business model is clear and geared for growth. With a reasonable amount of debt on its balance sheet, it will continue to push forward in spite of market circumstances.

Your say
While CAPS members may stand with Jim Cramer or on opposite sides of the field, the investor intelligence community is more than what some All-Stars think, even if they are TV personalities. But what do you think? Is Cramer right or off his rocker? You can head off right now to CAPS and sound off with your thoughts on whether Hasbro is worth a spot in your toy box.
