    The muppets 2011 was really good but Walter should not be a major muppet in place of rowlf, scooter and rizzo in mmw he was less involved but by only a little bit rowlf and scooter had more to do though in mmw than in muppets 2011

    No because both Rowlf and Scooter have been recast,and are doing a lot better then they where in Muppet Christmas Carol or any other movie.

    I love roelf he is my favourite and bill is doing a great job with him but what I am saying is that Walter will probably be more a major muppet than them which is not good

    Well, if we have more muppet movies or tv specials, or a show, he should be a minor character who has a few lines meant for laughs similar to Lew Zealand, and some of those other muppets in general.

    Yes Walter should still be a part of the Muppets but he should not take the place of any other Muppet.

    Walter should be part of the Muppets, but as part of the main characters? I don't think so....

    Right me personally I think he had to much screen time in Most Wanted.

    I think I remember reading an interview with Peter Linz talking about the 2011 movie a while back where at some point he said he doesn't even consider Walter the star of the film and stated that the main Muppets were.:p

    Even though Walter's my favorite (well..one of my favorites..), it definitely wouldn't make sense if he'll become a more major Muppet than Rowlf and Scooter.

    Of course he's a wonderful addition to the Muppets, with him being a Muppet we all can relate to. And, no kidding, I always thought before he'd mesh pretty well with the main Muppets. Sure, he's sweet and humble like Kermit and funny and childlike like Fozzie and daring like Gonzo, but sort of like what Peter said, I never imagined him being more major than any of the main Muppets. Maybe since he also has a geeky personality, maybe it seems he'd be better off as part of the other Muppets instead, I don't know.:p

    Walter linz no way should Walter replace them he is worse than Andy and randy

    Well that may be your opinion, but Andy and Randy really can't be put in the same category as Walter. The reason is that they are intended for a quick and easy laugh, or gag. Walter on the other had is more well rounded, and can be used for both comedy, and drama.

    He would have a supporting role no question. I think his personality is a lot like Scooter's So he may help out a lot backstage or things like that, That is if they do a Muppet Show type show again.

    He shouldn't be like scooter I think that he could maybe work with beaurigard

    Scooter should have a higher position in the Muppets by now. He's been an intern for decades. I see Walter in his role with Scooter getting a much deserved promotion. Maybe having Scooter mentor him.

    But again, this is all purely hypothetical. We don't know what the heck's gonna happen with the characters now.

    Drtooth what would scooter do though anc he is not a gofer anymore

    Walter could whistle.

    Or he could do an act listing off as many Muppet facts as possible.

    Or Kermit could put him in the position of Muppet archivist.

    I'd say that they should take a cue from the comics and promote Scooter to writer. Or at least a bigger backstage producer type deal. Either way, it only matters if it's that kind of show again. But even though they're an ageless troupe of fictitious characters, being the intern for that long? It's time to give Scooter his due. Especially since he's back.

    I don't like the idea of Walter being absent completely from future projects. It's a depressing implication that the character went through all that to be part of the group only to have it pulled away.

    I'm not saying he should be a main main character, but he should at least be recurring. Just as long as Andy and Randy and the parody pigs stay the freaking heck away from any future Muppet anything. They're terrible.
