No, it's way too far, you'd have to travel by map
I posted a little story 'bout Scooter. It's titled The Prince. Hope ya fans of the ginger twins like it.
For the record, it's amazing. just sayin'.
i love it
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....... 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.
Good point, good point.
ya know i've known who scooter was since i saw Muppet Christmas carol. and although i didn't see him i knew him
I don't get it; Scooter wasn't in MCC.
I think he was referring to "It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie", amirite? XD
it was probably muppets from space that got me to know him
1. i'm a girl
2. i swore myself to never watch that movie
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.
Oops, my bad!
Who cares how he got the job? Scooter works hella hard and love him much!
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.
Well he's the one who has all the bright ideas at the beginning. First he suggests they take the show to Broadway. Then he suggests they go out on their own, lol.
Yeah that would have been ideal. As it is there's too many humans with major parts in the film.
Frizzlefratz, I knew I wasn't the only one who thought that would be cool. That was part of my problem with MCC though; it felt more like A Christmas Carol with Muppets thrown in than the Muppets doing A Christmas Carol. I mean, Fozzy was barely in it, and I wish they woulda used familiar Muppets for the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, like they used familiar Disney characters in Mickey's Christmas Carol.
Wow, Drtooth. That is like, the greatest idea I've ever heard. Can we say...REMAKE!
