    I have some Electric Mayhem songs made on my Pisamba account for ringtones :) When I get my sim card and phone time, I will be downloading them onto my phone.

    I do too. Anything with Zoot in it is awesome! Next month I'll be getting an Electric Mayhem tattoo with Rowlf added onto it. I designed it myself :)

  5. I liked in the muppets go hollywood, zoot was playing how high the moon with the orchestra and when he's not playing he smacks his lips like he just woke up, and at the end he plays a bum note, classic zoot.

    I have the Muppet movie Floyd and Zoot quote as my notification ringtone. I love that quote.

    I like Rowlf and Zoot performing “Love Story,” mainly because of how teary-eyed Rowlf gets.

    That one is one of my favorite ones too :) Anything with Zoot and Rowlf playing together is awesome because they sound so good together.

    Omg the other day me and my mom were discussing the muppets and came across the topic of zoot here's how it went
    Me:Ah I love zoot he's adorable but he's so forgetful
    My mom:I think he's got some special needs or early allsimers*we laugh*
    Me:oh god hahahaha doesn't even remember his own name
    My mom: Well as long he as remembers how to play the saxophone it's fine

    My favourites are Sax and Violence, playing Walk Right Back in Anne Murray's dressing room and all his scenes with Floyd in the episode Dizzy Gillespie was guest. I also love when Liza Minelli was the guest. She asked Zoot what he thought of her rehearsal and he told her she was too good to be a person, she should have been a saxophone. Liza then asked Zoot if that made her his Sax-symbol. In true Zoot style he replied "Whatever"! :cool:

    I love ALL the Zoot moments. Especially, when he says.."oh you're too good to be a person. You shoulda been a saxophone!"

    I love when he accidentally swallows a bee in the Harry belafonte episode and when he points at the creature on juliet prowes neck which isn't her scarf

    The "Sax and Violence" sketch
    Rowlf and Zoot playing "Theme Song from Love Story"
    Zoot & Floyd playing "Honeysuckle Rose"
    A couple of Zoot-Janice moments during At the Dance:

    Zoot: "Do you believe in the hereafter?
    Janice: "Yes I do!"
    Zoot: "Then you know what I'm here after!"

    Janice: "Do you love forever?"
    Zoot: "I don't know, baby. Ask me in a million years."

    Janice: "Do you know what happened in 1776?"
    Zoot: "No. But there's a great party in 1862."

    Zoot's sax solo during "I Heard Through the Grapevine":


    Zoot's sax solo during Chopin's "Polonaise in a Flat Major"
