    Updated list:
    -Piggy (sometimes)
    -Wanda (a favorite)
    -Sexy Muppet
    -the two purple sopranos from SS; one was named Mme. Alma Gluck, I think she was from the Front & Back "Blue Danube" sketch and played by Louise Gold. The other was played by Richard Hunt and sang F-AN and N-ET; at the fan bit, an assistant (played by Frank Oz) came in and said "bring in the fan", and it blew her hair off; when she sang 'net', he said "bring in the net" and they dropped it on her. Poor soprano. Only way it could've been worse is if she'd sung "MON-STER" and one came up and ate her. What was it Animal said in the Steve Martin episode -- "SOPRANO LOOK DELICIOUS!!!!" Anyone have either or these sketches, btw?
    -one of the readers of the open range (the female one)
    -one of the Androoze Sisters (pigs, the one w/short curly hair) from "Everybody's Song" with Bip Bippadotta

    If I was a muppet, I'd totally be after Wembley!
    We both have VERY similar personalities (indecisive, active and cheery). Plus, he's a cutie! ;)

    Yeah, Wembley's easy to identify with. I'm also terrible at making up my mind. But like I said, my favorite is Scooter. In fact, when I was 7, I probably had a little crush on him without even knowing it.

    Lots of Muppets are the targets of crushes...as for the humans who work them down in the trenches, it seems that Richard Hunt, Steve Whitmire and Bill Barretta are the most popular with the fans who have two X chromosomes.

    Yeah, I def have a crush on Steve circa 1982 with the curly hair haha, aww! My Muppet "crushes" if that's what you want to call them, really I just think that they have a special place in my heart hehe are Kermit, obviously first and foremost, and Gonzo, whom I love very much, and I have a sister's love for Scooter and Robin. And my Fragglish loves are Wembley, like everyone else, and Gobo, most specifically his voice. Such a good little singer.

    My 7 year old sister, btw, has a crush on Boober. It's adorable. ;)

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    She's not a Muppet, but I had a crush on Gina from Sesame Street when I was a kid.

    And I am in love with Stephanie D'Abruzzo's voice (she's not bad lookin' either).

    Yeah, Whitmire's fairly popular with a lot of women here. I'm rather partial to Richard, personally. Guess it's because he plays Scooter. And besides, he wasn't that bad-looking, let's face it.

    It's true, Gobo has a nice voice, and we have Jerry Nelson to thank for that. Wembley and Boober are my favorites of the Fraggle Five, but I like Gobo too; the early version of him reminds me a bit of Scooter. Guess that's why.

    Boober for me, of course! :flirt: He's always been my favorite, and i can actually relate to him alot. like my sig says, "I've got myself, myself has I" But if boober wont have me *tear* then i'll take gonzo any day! ;)

    Interesting thread, y'all! ;)

    Hmmm, Muppet crushes, lemmie think...:
    -Scooter's wicked-awesome, he's great!
    -Wembley's so cute!

    But I just think they're cute. I don't really have a crush on a Muppet. They're just so cuddly looking! :)

    But as for Muppeteers... mmm!
    -Richard Hunt... during the 70's. yeah.
    -Stevie! I love his sence of humour and... oooh...his hair! I hope he doesn't cut it any shorter, I dig guys with long hair- growwwwl! :flirt: (Well I do! Umm- sorry)

    And besides, 'Scooter' is also the name I gave my computer during the setup phase.

    There, I said it and I'm proud!

    When I was little I remember having a crush on Floyd, especially during his singing parts in TMM and TMTM. :sing:

    I don't have a crush on Janice, since she's a woman. But since she's also a Richard character, sometimes there's a bit of minor confusion. Lol :flirt:
  13. Muppet Newsgirl

    Muppet Newsgirl Well-Known Member

    Yeah, you've got to include the guy in the trench in the equation.

    Kiki Well-Known Member

    Hey, that's okay. I love Dr. Teeth, he's so darn groovy. :cool:

    Oh, and you're totally spot on, Keith Moon is so much like Crazy Harry... and definatly Animal too. A mad drummer, y'know? Do you think Animal was based on Keith Moon?
  15. JJandJanice

    JJandJanice Well-Known Member

    I think there has been mention they he is, but I don't think anything has been totally stated as 100%. Dr. Teeth is based on Dr. John though.

    Robin, Wembley, and Robbie, for sweet cuteness...

    Gonzo, for his love of classics mixed with daredevil stuff...

    and (drum roll)

    Spike. I would risk getting eaten to join the Scavengers just so I could be around him every waking moment... ;D

    Kiki Well-Known Member

    Totally! Nah, not the appearence, I definatly the whole crazy thing. Keith seemed as mad as a snake- but I loved 'em! XD

    Being a guy, I don't have a "crush" on any Muppet or any of the performers, per se, but for fans' sake, I would say that--though I think ALL Muppets are adorable in their own unique ways--the ones that stick close to my heart personally are Kermit (obviously, because he and Jim were partners and stuck together [like Walt and Mickey did], not to mention the obvious fact that, without Jim, the Muppets wouldn't exist) and Red (though Gobo is clearly--thanks to Jerry--the lead Fraggle, Red's always been my favorite, due to her spunky nature and "never say die" attitude & that--thanks to Karen--her voice is awesome ["Bring back the wonder we knew long ago"~Red]).

    Remember, as Majorie, the all-knowing Trash Heap, once said, we cannot leave the magic! ^_^

    When I was in high school, some dudes put pictures of super models in bikinis and such in their lockers. Me? I had a picture of Janice playing her guitar looking upwards- very sexy pic for a puppet.
