    Fozzie Bear. Jerry is still doing the Count, Mumford and Herry, plus as many AMs as he can fit into his schedule.

    Dwayne. Sorry, I wasn't very clear. Jerry has retired from performing the classic Muppets but his characters are alive and well.

    In the Oz movie, Bill Barretta plays Lew Zealand, Steve Whitmire plays Statler, John Kennedy plays Floyd and Alice Dinnean plays Camilla.

    Hello Secret Squirrel, welcome back.

    Can you tell us if John is now the official performer of Floyd, or if Floyd will be passed around between different performers ?

    Thanks for the response, Secret Squirrel!

    A woman playing Camilla? Woooo--that'll be weird! :)
  5. Secret Squirrel New Member

    Muppet DK. Almost nothing's official anymore, but I imagine John will be the first person called when Floyd is next required.

    Thanks for the info Secret

    Lew was in the movie? Was he cut?
  8. Secret Squirrel New Member

    There were quite a few moments cut from the final version. Fingers crossed, they'll show up on the DVD.

    With all due respect to Ms. Dinnean-Vernon, her Camilla sucks.

    It's just a chicken noise. How could it?
  11. That Announcer New Member

    Compared to Jerry Nelson's Camilla, Ms. Dinnean-Vernon's is nothing. They are two totally different voices. And chicken noises CAN sound different.

    You know you are a Muppet fan when you can tell the difference between a "Burg," and a "burk"...

    dear goodness, we're debating chicken noises!!!!
  14. That Announcer New Member

    I can actually do the Camilla voice rather well. It is a "bawk bawk bawk", but to do Camilla, you have to get the tone right. And I can puppeteer pretty well- I have a store bought Ernie that I've rigged with arm rods. It's not hard.

    I like Jerry Nelson's Camilla much better. It's more funnier. Especially when she's allergic to flowers, sneezes and crashes into things. (counters, doors, walls, etc.) :)
  16. Fozzie Bear Moderator

    I thought Camilla sounded fine...but, then again, we haven't seen her in forever!

    I think all the new performers are doing a splendid job--especially considering that they are having to fill some pretty big shoes. Both the pressure of the performance amongst their peers when the original performer isn't there, plus the pressure of the fans and our pickiness, must play some kind of part in all that. But, I think they're all doing a great job.

    Pretty well. I'm surprised that Alice got FooFoo when Steve is still around!

    And I really want Lips back with the EM. He's way underappreciated.
  18. Xerus Active Member

    I noticed that Alice didn't really have any English speaking characters in Muppet Oz. She just did some Camilla clucks and Foo Foo barks.
  19. Fozzie Bear Moderator

    Yessir!! I agree 100%
  20. MWoO Active Member

    I too thought it was odd for Steve to get Foo Foo while Steve is clearly a main performer. Though I think his being a main performer is the reason Foo Foo was recast. Now we can have Foo Foo back with Piggy interacting with Kermit. We can relive that hilarious "oo-dee boo boo boo" moment from the Muppet SHow that has me in stitches whenever I see it.
