    I was surprised to see Scooter referred to as ""underappreciated". I thought that the majority of us fans liked him (I know of a few who dislike him or at least don't favor him). Weren't we all wanting him to return during that period when he was retired?

    People hate Scooter? :confused: What's there to hate? He's friendly. He's helpful. He lets the guest star know when the show's about to start. (The cold openings with him, in Seasons Two through Four, were some of my favorite moments on the Muppet Show.) Plus, in the Lynn Redgrave episode, when they were putting on Robin Hood, he made a super-cute Alan-A-Dale!

    I honestly don't know if it's on DVD; I'd have to do some more research. I saw the episode at The Paley Center for Media, which is in Los Angeles and New York.

    Ooooo yeah you gotta be careful. If it's Region 2, it can't be played in the US.

    Scooter might have been slightly manipualtive, and taking advantage of his Uncle being owner of the theater, but a certain extermely popular Muppet thinks mainly of herself and gets away with it......:mad:. I like Scotoer! He's a fun character with plenty of personality.

    I just saw The Muppets for the fourth time on Friday, and I have to say I noticed Scooter gets quite a bit of screen time. He's in all the scenes which only feature the "core" Muppets, such as when they infiltrate the Vogue office in Paris, or when Kermit goes to ask Tex Richman to give the studio back. Taking this into account along with Scooter's appearance alongside the other "core" Muppets on their recent SNL appearance, I get the feeling the writers are trying to re-establish Scooter as one of the core Muppets. After all, on the original show he was just as prominent a character as Fozzy, Miss Piggy, or Gonzo. It's strange he was never given a larger role in the first three Muppet movies.

    I hope so! Oh please! And I hope they get his old enthusiastic Muppet Show personality back! ;)

    I always got the impression they just weren't sure how to fit him in. On The Muppet Show he had a clear role to fill backstage, but now there's no backstage, lol.

    I think he was referring to "It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie", amirite? XD

    I've never bothered with "It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie" either. I much prefer "Muppet Family Christmas," a Muppets crossover of EPIC proportions!!! Wish they woulda thrown the Muppets of DC and Labyrinth in there too;).

    He seemed part of the gang the most in MTM... they don't meet up with him in the first one until they find the abandoned Presbyterian Church where Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem are performing, he pops up in the Happiness Hotel in the next one, and his presence only grows, but MTM he seemed to have a larger role... I would have to check, though.

    Really, it's a shame they didn't recast him in MCC... he would have made a wonderful Scrooge's Nephew.
