    I didn't spot Droop anywhere but Muppet Wiki said that he appeared in this special, "A Muppet Family Christmas". It may be some mistake here.
    Can anyone tell me where he is if Droop is in that special, please? [​IMG]

    Oh. Just wondering. Is it the same with "Muppet Treasure Island", then?

    No, according to the article, he is in MTI. I'm just not sure where though..I'll do some research.

    Isn't he Piggy/Benjamina's little feather-boa anteater? Or maybe just another pirate on the ship, I dunno. ;) (there should really be a Droop smiley, ha)

    Actually, the anteater in Muppet Treasure Island is Flaubert, not Droop. Flaubert may resemble Droop, but Flaubert has dark gray fur while Droop is has dark green fur. Flaubert also appeared in one episode of The Animal Show and in the second opening of Mopatop's Shop, along with Droop.

    According to the article, an earlier Frackle version (then known as Snivelly) appeared in The Great Santa Claus Switch, later to be redesigned as Droop, with a brief cameo at the beginning of The Muppet Christmas Carol, where an older woman closes a window on his nose...

    It would be nice to see a smiley to represent all those Frackles out there; and possibly future Muppet emoticons for Bobo the Bear, Link Hogthrob, and even Uncle Deadly....

    Droop's in one of the windows in the background during the Hispanola boarding scene in MTI.

    Neat, I never really noticed him there. I'll have to look out for that next time I watch MTI.

    I never noticed him either. Maybe the picture quality isn't good on Droop being far away in that scene.
