Discussion in 'Classic Muppets' started by Scooterforever, Nov 28, 2011.
Though to be fair, it could be Gonzo after one of his ill-fated stunts, lol.
I've always had a tendency to gravitate toward the more unappreciated member of a fictional group; Donatello (TMNT), Geordi Laforge (ST: TNG), Nightcrawler of the X-men (though basically any X-men member who isn't Wolverine is unappreciated). All these characters are essential members of their respective teams, but always seem to come in last in character polls. It's the same with Scooter; he was just as essential a character as Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, or Piggy in the original show, but remains largely unloved. Hopefully his prominence in The Muppets will change that, and he'll start appearing more frequently in Muppet projects again.
I'm a huge fan of Donatello and Nightcrawler too! Barcley was my favorite on TNG, but Laforge is great too (and they were friends on the show). I remember as a kid watching Levar Burton in the morning on Reading Rainbow and then on Saturday nights watching him as Geordi on Star Trek. Probably my first exposure as a kid to the concept of "This guy is an actor who plays different parts."
>pours love upon the go-fer of my heart<
Yeah, I enjoyed Barclay's intro episode, "Holo Pursuits." There was a bit too much Trek techno-babble near the end, but it was interesting how they explored what it's like to be addicted to the holodeck.
Oh yeah I mean I could definitely identify with that, wanting to lose yourself in fantasies (books, TV and movies in our case, hehe). I was always really shy and could totally identify with Barclay's pain and how everyone else on the ship had no idea what it was like.
I LOVE that it was Barclay who ended up saving Voyager in the end.
I never really noticed Scooter, but from what I've been watching so far, I like him! I just never noticed him as much as a kid like I did with Kermit, Piggy and Gonzo (i guess that's what being a 90's kid is all about?)
Out of all of Richard Hunt's characters, Scooter is my favorite. I'm glad that they have someone talented like David Rudman performing him full-time. It was great seeing Scooter in the movie with other classic characters.
Yeah I mean if you mainly grew up with the '90s Muppet movies, you wouldn't have gotten to know Scooter as much.
Scooter has been one of my favorites since I found out about The Muppets! I think he needs more toys. Like a plush toy or even better..................................................................
Drumroll Please! (Animal drummrolls triange)
............. A PUPPET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
True, he doesn't have anywhere near as much merchandise as Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Piggy, or even some of the Muppets who didn't have as big a role on TMS but became popular later on, like Beaker. Perhaps the new movie will create renewed interest in the character of Scooter.
I disagree. I was a 90s baby and I loved Scooter, but then again, I used to watch GMC and MTM practically every day when I was still a kid, but, I guess I'm the 90s baby exception to the whole 'not knowing Scooter' thing.
Scooter has always been a favorite of mine and he always will be <3
What?? I'm sitting here with a doll of him on my lap. Why do people hate him?
Exactly how I grew up. With Muppet Babies and Muppet movies all the way.
Yes. Simply. Yes.
Wow, this post of mine became somewhat popular!
3 people quoted it and I got my FIRST LIKE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LONG LIVE DA GO-FER!!!!!!!!!!!
I super-like this quote! I just love Scooter! I'm hoping we get more and more of him in 2012! May 2012 be the year of the go-fer! .... ok, maybe not as good as your line haha, but I'm hoping he starts getting the treatment he deserves and makes more appearances in whatever the Muppets are doing next year!
I like that, year of the go-fer, its cute, like Scooter
I joined your Facebook page, I was so happy I found it
Seconded. I think Disney has made a conscious decision to bring Scooter back to the forefront recently, so I think it's likely we'll see more of him in 2012. I really want to get the Palisades Scooter Bust, but I can't get it any cheaper than $80 on eBay, so I have to choose between that or the Dark Crystal Mystic Statue. Tough choice for me.
I love Scooter, and all my Muppet buddies! Bad Muppet is an oxymoron, unless it means Muppet Vilian.
