Any other Muppet Show fans here? We've had A-team, Dukes of Hazzard threads, how about one for the best show of twenty years past?

Favourite Muppet:Seen here facing down the Lobster Banditos with his cleaver.

The eternal unfortunate.

Rowlf the Dog (seen here doing a Pulp Fiction scene) comes in a close second, for his philosophical outlooks on life.

What i learned from the Muppets. Someone isn't speaking real Swedish unless they say "bork bork bork" at least once in each sentance.

I used to watch The Muppet Show religiously as a kid. My favorite Muppet was Animal. I still have an Animal puppet that my Grandmother bought for me on my birthday 28 years ago. I also have the Mega-Sized Animal action figure standing on my bookcase. Season 1 of The Muppet Show came out on DVD recently, I need to pick up a copy.

The DVD of season one is great.

They have a bunch of little known Muppet facts that can play along with each episode.

+1 for Rowlf - a canine tom Waites.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 3:28:18 PM EDT
I like the one where they butchered Miss Piggy and made Choizo and pork chops out of her.

I remember the episode that Alice Cooper hosted and thought it was kinda strange to have him on a kid's show dressed up like Satan. It was great.

I own the movies, the pilot episode, and season one on DVD

That pic needs to be photoshopped with the words:

Love the Muppet Show. If ya ever get the chance, go to the muppet show deal at California Adventure at Disneyland. I think I liked it more than my kids.

Tomorrow I search for season one.

I have muppets from space on vhs I think.

I have to admit this show will be one of my most watched dvds once I get it.

The swedish chef was my favorite. I liked the one where he was trying to open a coconut. Muppets were the best.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 5:55:22 PM EDT
My favorite Muppet skit was on the TV series "The State", where two guys dressed as frontiersmen were paddling around the cubicles in a business office in a canoe. Every now and then they would pull in a trap with a Muppet stuck in it. In one of the traps the Muppet had chewed it's own leg off to escape.

Later they were seen enjoying their Muppet dinners. I guess they tasted like chicken.

Even as a kid (watching reruns on Nick at Nite), I wanted to skin Miss Piggy and roast her at luau.

I met Statler and Waldorf at the Thunder Ranch Tactical Carbine Class. The class was awsome with the exception of these guys making jokes about my qualification scores.

Alice Cooper was on the Muppet Show twice if I remember correctly. On one episode he sang "School's Out", on the other he sang "No More Mister Nice Guy". Very bizzare.

The Dudley Moore episode is one of my favorites. He was an amazing piano player.

lets see they had 'Pigs in Space 'and ' Bear on Patrol' , Muppet Labs' [with doctor Bunsen Honeydew], Veterenarians Hospital' [ doctor Bob and Nurse Janice]. The flying Zucchini Bros. were some funny sumbitches!!! Hey!!! how cumma no bigga booma booma??

That was some pretty decent drumming. He did better in his drum duel with Harry Belafonte.

I wonder why only Season 1 is available?

I have a 'best of' collection. DVD version has some extras like "Muppets auditioning for other roles" including Yoda and the Godfather.

The Swedish Chef is the best! Of course, being a chef myself, I'm a little biased.

How about John Cleese, the Space Pirate, and his jilted Parrot?
