Bill Baretta Appreciation Thread

    We talk a whole lot about other Muppet Performers, but there hasn't been much said about their next-to-newest performer, Bill Baretta. Bill is, in my opinion, an asset to the JHC. He is candid, funny, and brings an undeniably wonderful energy to all his characters. Pepe is just a rod puppet but when he's jumpimg aorund with all his arms wiggling, I think very fondly of him.

    Talking of Puppet types, Bill does them all, from standard types like Johnny Fiamma, to immense advanced species like Bobo. Sure he tends to do more original characters than revivals of characters, as we'd like to see. But, we don't want to throw out any of his characters. They all have great personalities and interact with the classic Muppets well. Bill rocks! There's no denying it.

    Anyone have something to add, ok?

    It's funny though, when Bill visited the BBB, we didn't say a whole lot!


    (I still remember being so hyper about that. Ah... memories...)

    Hey, Beau? Salmoto? Have you noticed how we're the only guys who have, and probably will, post here? Hmmm. Maybe that's why Bill plays Pepe so well.:D

    Um, dude? I'm not entirely certain you're placing blame where it's due. It ain't exactly Bill's fault.

    PePe is defiantly a new favorite of mine. This is mostly because he views the world in humorous illogical ways, is a very over confidant character, and has the cutest voice/phrase. Rock on PePe!

    I LOVE Bill!!!! He brings us Pepe, he brings us Johnny, he brings us Bobo.....(I LOVE Bobo!!!!) And.....HE BROUGHT BACK ROWLF!!!!! And for this fact, and this fact ALONE, I'd love him forever, but especially considering he does some of the FUNIIEST new characters, (props has to go to Brian Henson for Dr. Phil, too though), makes him ALL THE MORE awesome in my eyes!!! So....We love you, Bill!!!!!!!!
    By the way, what's "BBB"? :confused:

    i'm not placing any blame on bill. what i'm saying is, try to have a more of a variety with the characters in a movie or on tv...don't just rely on certain characters like pepe that are easy to write for...if i were him, i'd tell the writers to ease up on pepe, and get rowlf back to being a main character..pepe is great and all, but he's getting used so much now a days....don't take the easy road....thats what i'm trying to say scooter...

    Wow, what glowing comments, the other performers must be jealous they don't get the same kind of compliments.
