    The Hispanola.

    ....Or since someone already made that joke, here's the only one I support that's not official already, Animal and his red-haired dance partner with the goofy voice from the Muppet Show. I always thought they were hilarious/cute together and I wish she would've showed up more as a character. :halo:

    .....Is it just me or is there a weird amount of guy-on-guy here :shifty:

    Not that I'm totally serious but.....

    Red and Mokey :scary: (bwahahaha! Mixin' it up!....hey, it's cute too)

    Beaker/Skeeter. Just try to picture it, especially if she actually does make a comeback in puppet form.

    I'm not sure if its ever been mentioned but I LOVE Gonzo and Piggy (Its one sided on Gonzo's side)

    Well Jim Henson and Frank Oz were best friends, to the point that when they puppeteered together the chemistry was such they "knew" just what the other was going to do, a seemless pairing.

    However, my favourite pairing is that of Jerry Nelson and Louise Gold - in something like eighteen years they've done quite a variety of characters together ranging from Cowboy Jerry and Lou-The-Jugband-Lady on TMS, to Herry Monster and Louisey on Sesame Street through to the tourist rats on MTI. Both are brillient singers, that number that Herry and Louisey did on Sesame ("I Can Sing Anything When I Sing With You) summed up their partnership perferectly. Even in West End Theatre Louise hardly ever sings duets with anyone who can match her quite as perfectly as Jerry can.

    Now there's a ship that gets my vote. Cowboy-Jerry and Lou-The-Jugband-Lady, or if you prefer to call them Slim Wilson and Lou, then do.

    Is there anyone with a ship they're embarrassed about?

    I don't know if I'd say I'm embarrassed about it, but this is something that might tread on people's toes here: I like the idea of Boober/Wembley. If anyone could watch Pebble Pox Blues and NOT think that they are a perfect pair, then they're crazy.

    (Dude, I totally forgot about this :o)

    My favourite Muppet ships are probably yours. Kermit/Piggy, Floyd/Janice and Gonzo/Camilla, all of them perfectly safe and canon!

    But, er, *ahem* I, erm, ImayshipZoot/Lipsprettyhardcore. *runs away before anyone can react*

    My favourite canon ships:


    And some unofficial ones:

    Scooter/Annie Sue
    Rowlf/Brunette girl from At the Dance
    Swedish Chef/Cleo Laine
    Statler/Emily Bear

    We know that Statler and Emily are old friends, but what if it is/was ever more than just friendship? Oh my god, what if...? *mind boggles*

    Haha! I think that's already canon!

    Ooooh Lord, it's hard to be humble,
    When your perfect in ev-er-y way!

    Ha, that's true! I was debating whether or not to put it in the list of official ships, but I think it belongs there.

    Waldorf and Astoria (a female version of Statler);
    As for Statler, his wife could be a female version of Waldorf (minus the mustache), and her name could be Penny,

    since the current Hotel Pennsylvania in NYC was originally known as the Hotel Pennsylvania, then renamed as the Statler Hilton when purchased by Conrad Hilton, and after several more business transactions, finally reverted to its original name, the Hotel Pennsylvania.

    After all, Waldorf & Astoria is an obvious pun on the famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel in NYC....

    I am a leetle hesitant to admit it, but although I prefer Red/Gobo and Mokey/Boober if I were to pair Fraggles, I have thought that Boober/Red would be kinda cool as well! They have a great understanding of each other, despite their differences.

    "Marooned," of course, is the very best example (and probably the spark) of what I'm talking about. It's really cute to know that they went through something traumatic together and shared deep secrets and contemplations, and although they promise never to talk about them again, they still know ;). That kind of connection is special, even if not romantic (though understanding definitely blossoms into that sometimes). What's more, I think Red and Boober both a greater appreciation for sentiment than they respectively let on, hee.

    Red also jokes around with him in ways that I think are charming, even if he acts glum and annoyed!

    I'm boringly conventional with Muppet (Show) pairings--Kermit/Piggy, Floyd/Janice, blah blah :D Which doesn't make them boring, but gives me nothing new to say there!

    I wonder how Beth Bear (TMTM) and Fozzie would have worked out, since she had a bit of a crush on Fozzie while they were hibernating in the cave......

    Oh god, this thread is so embarrassing to look back on, I was such shipping trash back then. Actually, I still am but--

    OTPs (Updated):
    ~Zoot/Janice (Yes, I know they haven't been a thing for decades but I still love their first season moments so much. <33 And I like to think there's still something there...sometimes...off-stage...maybe...I can dream, can't I??)
    ~Floyd/Janice/Zoot (OT3 because why not?)
    ~Lips/Zoot (Been shipping it forever but I sort of see it as a one-sided thing nowadays. Mostly because Lips tends to disappear and reappear in canon so randomly.)
    ~Lips/Teeth (Hey Cait! Look, it's our crackship! <33)
    ~Wemb--you know what? Polyamorous!Fraggle Five.
    ~Storyteller/Uncle Matt
