Favorite Zoot moment?

    So, while listening to Episode 304 (Gildna Radner) of the Muppet Show at work, I cracked up at the Rowlf and Zoot duet. (They end up glued to their respective instruments.) It is not often we here Zoot speak anyway, but when we do it is usually pretty funny. This one IMHO a bit more so, since he has a "sax hum" quality and you can't make out what he is saying too well.

    What are your favorite Zoot moments?

    Well, I can tell somebody's a Zoot fan. :cool: My favorite moment is all of the "Musician Jokes" he and Floyd (and Animal in one of them) do in the Dizzy Gillespie episode. My favorite being...........
    Man: Excuse me. Cross town buses run all night?
    Floyd and Zoot: Do dah! Do dah!

    That is funny! I am not really a hardcore Zoot fan, just a big Muppet fan. Zoot I feel is under-appreciated, and not very well represented here on the forums though. And you see "Your favorite 'X' moment" threads, and I haven't seen any Zoot ones, so I thought it could be fun to include it and what people say.

    It seems rather strange that Zoot's lines in TGMC seem to outnumber all those from other Muppet films combined.....

    Zoot: Darn! I just had them!
    Dr. Teeth: Did you leave them in your other pants?
    Zoot: I don't got no other pants.
    I love that part.

    I always liked Zoot's sax solo at the end of " You Can't Take No For an Answer " in The Muppets Take Manhattan.

    Remember the one where Zoot plays sax and smoke comes out of it through out the musical number then just clouds up the camera while Rowld and Zoot coughs" lol One of my favorites, that and the one with the fly going into Zoots sax while he's jamming with Floyd and at the end he just slips the fly out of his mouth. lol

    Strangely enough, I don't know if I have a favorite Zoot moment. He's always just such a big part yet one that I don't often recognize specifically. I'll have to think about this.

    Though, of course, we can't forget the end of every TMS episode. :cool:

    Heeellooooo, where did this thread come from?

    Personally, I love just even a second of when he's the centre of attention or a slight action that defies his character more. But if you had to twist my arm and make me choose, I'd go with him lighting a Menorah at the end of Letters to Santa.

    Well, next to;

    :cool:: Come in?! I've been sleeping here for three months!

    I just remembered some classic Muppet movie quotes

    Scooter: They looked at us as if we were from outer space.
    Zoot: Who huh what uh?
    Dr. Teeth: Zoot, go back to sleep. No one has landed.
    Zoot: Oh.
    _The Muppets Take Manhattan

    Fozzie: Wax Lips
    Zoot: Oh man I just had them.
    Dr. Teeth: Did you leave them in your other pants?
    Zoot: I dont got no otha pants! lol
    _The Great Muppet Caper

    And from The Muppet Movie
    Zoot: And I'm a...uh..I'm
    Floyd: Zoot, Sax is your Axe. Uh Oh, Zoot skipped the groove again.
    Janice: Fer Sure.

    Remember the sketch with Floyd and Zoot sitting on the bench outside, I forgot what the set up of the gag was but Zoot replied "B Flat" then plays his sax on a low note. lol Even though I don't get the joke fully, it still cracks me up. lol

    Floyd is sleeping on the bench and theres some sort of crash that wakes him up and a siren goes off.
    Floyd: Hey man, what was that?
    Zoot: B flat. -blows a B flat on his sax-

    That's the trumpett player episode where Dave Golez is the sound inspector right? I love that episode. Season 4 right? That's probably one of my all time favorite episodes. :)
