Muppets are Radioactive?

Quirky maybe, but radioactive?

Do you like the Muppets?

I hated them growing up. I guess it was due to my 4 older brothers and having to prove I wasn't a childish weakling. They made me hate dolls too, but that's a story for another day. Regardless, it wasn't until I married my off-kilter husband that I really gained an appreciation for the sense of humor behind Jim Henson's creations. I mean, seriously, does it get any better than Pepe the King Prawn or Rizzo the Rat?

Okay, maybe it does, but they've earned a warm place in my heart for the snarky asides and unique personality traits. I tend to think Muppets Treasure Island and Muppets Christmas Carol are awesome sauce. (And lest you should ask, yes, I have been challenged to use awesome sauce every single blog post.)

So, now for the show.

I'm constantly on the watch for funnies that smart in the average man's face. This one got me:



Death by stuffed animal, how cool is that?

Are you a Muppets fan? Why or why not?

  2. I used to watch the Muppet show and enjoyed it although I could never figure out the appeal of Kermit. Fozzie was far more entertaining.

  4. My daughter is a huge fan of Imagine Dragons, but I had never seen/heard any of their stuff. That was a little disturbing! :P Muppets were after my time, but I thought they were cute.

  8. I liked The Muppet Show well enough, but I wouldn't watch Farscape because the idea of humans and muppets interacting in a serious show turned me off. I thought of it as "Muppets in Space."

    1. Except they did make a "Muppets in Space", and it's my hubby's favorite one! (Because it's all about Gonzo, crazy man.) To each their own, eh? ;)

    1. Hee hee! I remember that show--especially the Star Wars episode. It was pretty awesome, but it doesn't have anything on Muppets Treasure Island. Tim Curry singing, I mean, awesome, right?

  10. Honestly, I had no idea where the video was going at first...yes, that was very funny...in a disturbing way! Or maybe the other way around. I love the ending! Hilarious.

    As for the question, I grew up on Muppets and I did love them. But as far as Jim Henson's entire cast of characters, my favorite is and always will be the fluffy blue cookie connoisseur himself... Cookie Monster. :)

    1. COOKIE MONSTER!! Yeah, he's pretty awesome. Him, and Oscar the Grouch. Wow. It's amazing how many of those characters have become cultural basics 101.
