    How old was he supposed to be? We know the Muppets performed at his tenth birthday party but this implies the man is younger than the actor who played him since Chris Cooper is a bit old to have had them perform at his tenth birthday party. Isn't he?

    Well technically that scene was cut, so there's no problem in the final film. ;)

    Even if he's 50 in 2011, the Muppets can still theoretically have been to his birthday party. He would've been 10 in the 70s, right? Age rarely is an issue in Muppetdom because, as the movie overtly references, Muppets just sorta freeze in time eventually (contrast Gary's age progression with Walter's). He COULD be older, but then that would beg the question of just when the Muppet Show Muppets joined as a group, because TMS wasn't a show in the 50s or 60s. Kermit and Rowlf had clearly met before (as shown by Sesame Street), but Fozzie's in that clip too. That doesn't really mean anything, though.

    I would think 50 would even be a little bit old, since he'd be 10 in 1971, and in 71 the Muppets were basically Sesame Street characters, Kermit, Rowlf, and some other characters from Sam and Friends/commercials. I have a feeling the Muppet Show Muppets actually came to his birthday party, so they wouldn't have been around much in 1971. If he was 40, he'd be ten in 1981, so that would work. If he'd be 45, that would work, putting him being ten in 1976, when TMS started. So probably he could be anywhere 45 or younger.

    That's true I mean nobody cares about the age of the charaters.
