I don't like Clifford, do you?

    yeah, a welcome addition to the muppets, considering you're a rowlf fan i'd figure you'd like him he's another musical muppet outside of the mayhem. also, he wears the burden of MT, but that wasn't his fault, he's a great character, just not a great host

    I do like Clifford. I liked him better when he was a little more wild-eyed (with sunglasses on, heh heh)--like in JHH and Muppets From Space than on MT, but he's cool on MT also. Didn't you see him with Paula Abdul?? THAT was a cool sketch!

    Exactly. Clifford just came on too strong in MT, but he's great. I cannot wait to get him as an action figure. I hope he makes a come back in the next project.

    But as Clifford, not MT-emcee-Clifford.

    He grew on me. First like a bad wart, then like a cute little freckle. Was that too graphic? :D

    Actually, since I don't remember JHH too well, I'd have to say that I liked "Muppets Tonight!" Clifford. He was an okay host, but I agree that Kermit would have been much better. I actually prefer him without sunglasses for some reason.

    Are you sure you don't mean Clifford the big red dog?

    Clifford is an awesome character

    I think Clifford is a great character..I remember the very first time I saw him...I think I was around age five..but I remember seeing him in one of the sketches and I have loved the character ever since...even though he looks like a cat fish..jk...You can defin. see Kevin's other side in it. As for Muppets tonight it fit him more than Kermit just because he had that leadership quality. I wish they still aired the show because I miss watching it...I watched it every single time it was on..well that and the dinosaurs.

    Since we are on the topic of Clash characters, what ever happened to Leon? He was awesome.

    Clifford was alright on MT; my best assumption to why he was picked was because Kermit has hosted virtually every other prime time series. MT just gets a bad rep, for some reson. I dunno, I've always liked it...not as much as TMS or JHH, but it wasn't BAD or anything. They developed a working persona for Cliff.... seeing as before this he was pretty much just a bass player without much character development.

    I agree with you and Jedix...

    MT wasn't half as good as TMS, anyway. I mean, Clifford was an okay host, no Kermit, but if it were Pepe, Johnny, Sal, whoever, we'd scold them for taking the frog's spot.

    I liked Clifford as he was in the Walt Disney World Special. I wish he could stay with the band. But he was also good in MFS. To me, the new characters like him and pepe saved the film for me.

    I love me Clifford, and I wish I actually bought the Beach party CD. He's one of my favorite Kevin Clash characters besides Elliot Shag (a Muppet cartoonist... I love him!)

    I like him, the first time I saw him was when I was a wee lad and it was on Muppet Sing-A-Longs: It's not Easy Bein' Green" :)

    I liked the "new" Mayhem band from the WDW special. What did Cliff play in that? I know he was bass in the "Solid Foam" band in JHH (produced by Dr. Teeth:D). Just throw my ol' pal Digit in there and you have one awesome band.

    And he wasn't even in AVMMCM... sigh... he got so big too fast, he fell...
    Elmo nothing. I think he was one of Clash's best characters.

    I didn't notice that Clifford wasn't in VMX at all...odd. I could have handled it if he was. I like him.

    I don't dislike Elmo, either. I like him.

    Have you seen the previews of Elf? It has the guy hiding behind a huge display of Elmos. Cracks me up. :)
