Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll – 9/7

Who is your favorite Muppet?   Elmo has received a lot of hype in the past two decades, for some unknown reason. Bert and Ernie get in the news occasionally for what they do or do not do in their twin beds. Kermit is probably the iconic Muppet. But I’ve always had a soft spot for Big Bird. 

So what about you? Who is your favorite Muppet? It can be from Sesame Street or the Muppet Show. Or both!

First off, I would like to say that Elmo is my least favourite Muppet. Why would anyone create a character for an educational TV show that doesn’t speak properly. He makes me insane and I’ve all but banned him from my children’s lives.

That said, my favourite is probably still Miss Piggy, followed by Fozzy Bear. Piggy may be vain and selfish, but she packs a mean karate kick.

I don’t think it’s possible to pick just one favorite Muppet. They are all the best. I remember when I was little, I loved the Swedish Chef, Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker and the crazy guy who showed up every now and then to blow things up. I think sometimes he had a giant fish?

Rizzo and Gonzo are my favourites. After A Muppet Christmas Carol, how could they not be? So to choose just one would be Rizzo. I really identify with that rat. He’s so skeptical and sarcastic. Followed in a close second (or would that be third and fourth/) by Statler and Waldorf. I also identify with those jerks, and their laughs make me laugh. Who doesn’t like that?

Beaker, all the way. First year of undergrad I dressed up as him for Hallowe’en, which I believe is the only time I used the lab coat that for some reason I bought at the beginning of the semester thinking I would need it. Had red hair glue and everything — it was great.

Man, I was all about Animal and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker. My love of Animal and Beaker knows no bounds. I was never a big fan of Sesame Street, but I loved the Muppet show and Muppet Babies, because nothing says, “Great TV!” like turning adult characters into babies and have a pair of legs watch over them.
