aw they insulted poor scooter, and Janice ? I never found anything wrong with her. I like her , she is so down to earth. as for robin, who does by the way have some spotlight action in my fan fic flirtation waltz a Muppets love . which I'm still working on, I find him adorable . I don't understand why who ever did that article, has so much hate for him. bitter much ?
Simply put, one cannot be a true Muppet fan and not like Scooter. Look at how much the board lights up when Scooter makes an appearance in anything.
This thing was written by someone in their late 20's that picked up a couple DVD's for nostalgia's sake.
Scooter is often funny when he announces things to the guests.
As for my list, I don't have one.
Here's a list of my top 10 worst Muppets.
7. Why am I still going?
3. Why would anybody even make a top 10 worst Muppets list?

I tried I really did, but I cant seem to think of a Muppet who I don't at least really like.... Some I didn't care for at first but I love them a lot now so...
That's exactly what I was thinking as I was typing my comment.
I agree; my least favorites would have to be the Muppet Babies, but all others I just totally love.
I did like the Muppet Babies scene from MTM, but was never a fan of the animated series. There are some episodes that I like, however.
Gladys the Lunch Lady
Mr. Poodle Pants
Granny the Gouger
Oh. I forgot that some Muppets Tonight characters did not lead a very pleasant feeling, in my opinion including
Bill the Bubble Guy
(And, yes, I am aware that most of these characters were in the Jim Henson Hour. And, how do you not like Fleet Scribbler?)
Fleet was so negative. Even Jerry Nelson and the writers didn't like him.
Yeah. Well, in that way, I can see why you dislike him. But, I kind of liked him. But, then again, I still haven't watched those episodes in 2 or 3 years with Fleet Scribbler in them.
IIRC, it wasn't so much that Fleet was a negative character as he was just really abbrasive and aggressive: he was supposed to be poke fun at nosey reporters who are always invading people's personal space to try and dig up a scoop on them, but I believe it was that kind of personality is what turned off the writers, despite being really popular with the British press.
Dude, if we're gonna go that route, what about Penelope Penguin? Gah, I've never been so annoyed by a Muppet before in my life, I wanted to strangle that thing!
Personally, I liked Penelope. Perhaps not one of Sesame Street's more likable one-offs, but adorably immature and nutty. Then again, that episode was the only recent episode of Sesame Street I ever got a chance to see, since it was playing at the hospital once and nobody ever bothers to put new SS episodes online, to my knowledge, so I can't judge proper.
Besides, there is one Sesame one-off that is truly the most unlikable, even though he wasn't actually on the show, but instead a game based on it:
Sure, Cooper is a nice looking Muppet, Ryan Dillon is a good puppeteer, and it's pretty neat that they were able to motion capture a Muppet, but he is truly irritating and high pitched, more so than Elmo or Murray have ever been. Unless you've already played the game, just look up any gameplay video on YouTube, even if it has commentary, and you'll see what I mean...
oh good i'm not the only one who liked Penelope.
Well, it's more then ten: A bunch of characters from Muppets Tonight I could live with out
Ernst Stavros Grouper
Jean-Dodd van Clamme
Moo-Ing the Merciless
Bart, Moo-Ing's cow Henchman
The muppets tonight houseband minus Jowels
Bill the Bubble Guy
I agree on most of these, some I'm slightly indifferent on. I actually like Dorothy and Jean-Dodd's designs though. Especially Jean's.
The stepsisters from HEY CINDERELLA! They have the same problems Drtooth always complained about regarding Season 1 SST AMs: out-of-focus eyes and dead expressions, not to mention they're not really Don's best work, I think. And I'm guessing the special didn't have enough of a budget to get Frank and Jerry microphones, because their voices sound like they're coming from under the floor.
