    I was just thinking, Jerry Nelson's character's sure are hard to do. I can do an alright Floyd and sometimes Lew Zealand, but anyone else is just so hard to reach. He just has so much sharpness in his voice that is hard to duplicate.

    The first thing I try to practice with Lew's voice is his laugh.
    With Floyd, I try to make it raspy, but I end up damaging my wind pipes.

    That's the problem. You're using wind pipes when you should be using a guitar.

    Scooter's another voice that I used to have trouble with, but am gradually getting the hang of.

    Now Wemlbey is a voice I can't do to save my life. I always have struggled with the voices of characters originated by Steve.

    I can do impressions of a few characters, Swedish Chef being one of the easiest. Not bad with Bunsen either.

    My problem with Bunsen is that I can kinda do him, but I always end up slipping into some sort of weird accent with him.

    For me, it's not hard to do Lew Zealand, Dr. Strangepork, Uncle Deadly, or Pops because I have a loud voice. It's tougher for me to do Robin's high-pitched voice and Louis Kazagger, too. And I especially have trouble with Floyd's voice and laugh. I end up coughing after I do it.
    And to throw my hat into the "Miss Piggy" voice, I can do a good job with Miss Piggy's normal speaking voice, but I have to work on her "angry" voice and her singing.

    When I get so excited, sometimes I do sound like Red Fraggle. Heh, I guess I am not the only who comes out with a Muppet or Fraggle voice. Ha! :excited:

    There are a lot of Muppets who I can't do a voice impression of, but I can imitate the way they say and pronounce things. I'm not sure what that is called... vocal inflections, maybe?

    Also I've recently discovered that I can do a close impression of TMS Season 2 Gonzo, but only for a few seconds because I can't keep the raspiness going.

    Bumping this:
    Recently, found out I can do a nice Oswald the Ostritch and Dicky Knee from Australia's HEY HEY IT'S SATURDAY, and Agro from the Cartoon Connection.

    I also recently found out I can master Andre the Giant's voice... But he's hardly a muppet...
