So, which one's your favorite? Mine is Lew Zealand, the lunatic with the boomerang fish. Don't ask why.

I always loved Gonzo. Little blue guy with that huge nose...he was the funniest of all to me.

Ooh, I forgot about the Swedish Chef.  Rizzo amuses me too.  Gonzo was one of my heroes as a child.

I started off liking Gonzo, But I think I prefer Waldorf anbd Stattler nowadays, I loved them as Marley and Marley in a Muppets Chrismas Carol -

"Its good to be heckling again"

"It's good to be doing anything again"

But the great Gonzo's still cool  smile

"We're Marley and Marley, whoooooooooooooooooo"

Kermit was the best. Gotta respect a frog who can stand up to what he took from Miss Piggy. Waldorf and Stattler come a close second, and Miss Piggy is oinking at their heels.

But why'd they make that one muppet out of leather?

Animal was ok in the movies, but I hated him in Muppet Babies. Actually I hated everyone on Muppet Babies.

Swedish Chef rocks, I have him as my wallpaper. Kermit also rocks. I also like that new Bear guy(I forget his name...not Fozzie).

I know the one you mean.
As an avid fan of the muppets, I've gotta say miss piggy was my childhood favourite, But I love that sweedish chef too. Actually, to pick one, thats really hard. Waldorf and Stattler are hilarious, too. I remember one quote from muppets tonight frown remember that talk show that they used to have?) it was a wig race, or something, and the guy who owned the winning wig was interviewed.
'so, do you use shampoo?'
'Shampoo? ha!  I use real poo! I only have the finest treatment for my wigs!'
for some reason, i found that hilarious. Oh, that stern looking eagle guy was funny too. God, i'm gonna go out and rent all the muppet videos out...

I like the singing fruit the best.  yes i'm weird

also kermit is pretty awesome. 

If you are renting muppet videos i suggest trying to find the storyteller series... although they aren't really like the muppet show or anything.

Storyteller, eh? I was actually thinking about getting some of those for my birthday but ended up getting other crap instead. I will check those bastards out.

Muppets Tonight rocked. And I don't mean in a "for the kids but not too annoying for adults" way, either. I thought the show was genuinely funny. I used to have the Sandra Bulloch episode on tape(where they had to keep their ratings at a certain level or else a bomb would go off). It had some "Seinfeld Babies" sketch...goddamn hilarious.

Cooooooool, a muppet thread.
I loved them all. Well thats a blatant lie but the muppets are great.
Gonzo was my childhood favourite, I love all the strange acts he goes on stage with. Animal was fun, the Swedish chef was hilarious. Two grumpy old men (I know two people like that). Oh, the good old days.
Miss Piggy's nephews (Randy and somethingorother) from Muppets Tonight got on my nerves a little.

What's with digging up this fossil, Torq? Anyway, while it's up I'll put my vote in for Kermit.

With the possible exceptions of Muppet Treasure Island and Muppets From Space I have enjoyed every Muppet film ever made.  I'd have to say Gonzo has been the most consistently hilarious.  Close seconds would be Rizzo (as of late), Rowlf, the Swedish Chef, Beauregard, Sam the Eagle (whom I get compared to a lot, strangely enough), and Statler and Waldorf.

In the bus on our band trip to Florida, my friends and I laughed like Statler and Waldorf at the most remotely funny instances.  By the time 3 AM rolled around, we were getting pretty annoying.

Explanation why The muppet movie, muppets in manhattan and the great muppet caper are better than the other 3 (christmas carol, treasure island and in space) is because the first ones were with one of the greatest legends alive, Jim henson. The others were by his son, watchamacallit. Although i don't mind the christams carol one, the other two are complete crap in comparison with the great days of 'the man' I think it's because the later three have too much focus on the human actors, and not enough muppets.

The latest films are different because the way the characters themselves are used.  In the old films, it was always Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo on some ludicrous adventure.  The latter three films have all been (for the most part) Gonzo telling a story with the others in the background.

How could anyone not like Muppet Treasure Island? That film was great.

I haven't seen Christmas Carol or the space one... so far, I'd say "The Great Muppet Caper" was the best of the movies.

I never liked Muppet Caper. The original movie and Muppets Take Manhatten are the best. Christmas Carol was pretty good even though that story is so overused. Treasure Island was just ok. Muppets In Space started out funny, but towards the end it just went gay.

Does "Follow that Bird" count as a Muppet movie?
