I'm not really sure where this thread belongs... I feel it's more Muppet-related than puppet-in-general-released. Anyway, does anybody know how the Jim Henson Company has usually kept hats on it's characters heads? Due to the shapes of the heads, some don't look like they can keep their hats on without help. Are the hats usally sewn on, taped on, velcroed on (is "velcroed" even a real word?), or something else? I think Fozzie might be one of the few characters whose hat is put on in place. The shape of the top of his head and the position of ears seem easy to keep it on, and his hat has unintentionally fallen off at times. And Fozzie is also one of the few hat-wearing characters to regularly be seen taking the hat off and putting it on (thoug most hat-wearing Muppets have rod-controlled hands so that would be hard for many). Given the shape of Kermit's head, I'd be surprised if he could hold a hat on his head. Whenever Kermit wears a hat (most notably his reporters hat) it looks like it's on the back of his head. His pingpong ball eyes on top of his head don't leave much room for a hat to just be at the top without blinding Kermit. There are many others who don't look like they can keep their usualy hats on without help... Characters like Dr. Teeth, The Swedish Chef, Floyd, and Sherlock Hemlock. And I wonder if anything is sued to stick Biff and Sully's heads to their helmets (both characters helmets have fallen off their heads at times when drilling, but both were otherwise rarely seen hatless... though given the head and hat shapes it looks like Sully's can stay on real well). I think Zoot and Janice can wear their hats without having to stick them on.
