    After watching "An Evening w/ Frank Oz and Jim Henson", I was surprised to find out that Frank was with Jim 4 years before performing a voice. He said it scared him to death, and he didn't want to do it, and Jim mentored and encouraged him along the way. BTW, his first voice was the two-headed monster on the Street. He went with the old addage, if you can't be good, be loud.

    Animal's my favourite Muppet, so I had to choose him, but I also love Miss Piggy, Fozzie and Cookie Monster. :halo:

    Man, it's so hard to choose! I'll go with "other" to refer to "all of the above".

    Was pretty tough to choose, so many of his characters are great, but I went with Sam. His uptightness is really entertaining when mixed with the looney land of the Muppets.

    I'd say Cookie Monster's a close second.

    I like Miss Piggy and Grover, but I would have to say Cookie Monster!! :insatiable:
    I love the way he eats cookies and other objects!! ("Om nom nom nom nom nom!!!")

    Fozzie hands down; my favorite Muppet of all time. I think in a few weeks I'll post a retrospective of what Fozzie means to me.

    Since I voted Miss Piggy, she and Fozzie Bear both have 5 votes. When I eat, my parents heard me smacking my mouth or something and they thought I was more like rully acting like Cookie Monster. :insatiable: Rats!! However, Miss Piggy has always been my favorite character of Frank's.

    I had to go with Fozzie, though I do have a fondness for Bert.

    For sure, Sam the Eagle! Why? I love his role as a sort of "censor" in TMS, trying to keep the show "cultural", and hating most of the guest stars, and even trying to stop Madeline Kahn from doing TMS until he realizes "she's one of them", and his roles in MTI and especially MMW cracked me up. :attitude:

    Sam the Eagle by far. I was actually just thinking about how absolutely BRILLIANT Frank is at performing Sam. I just finished watching Muppets Most Wanted and Eric is... pretty good with Sam, but Frank is just, again, brilliant. I'm watching Muppet Treasure Island now, this is definitely my favorite role of Sam's, such a great performance.

    FOZZIE, BY SO MUCH!!! Fozzie is such a wonderful character. He brings so much personality to the wonderful bunch of The Muppets. Like, there's different characteristics to him. Sometimes, he can be funny. Sometimes, he can try so hard, and fail. Sometimes, he can stand up to the hecklers. He adds so much to The Muppets. On top of all that, he's a sweet, lovable, guy that wouldn't hurt no one!
