    In "The Muppet Movie" was I the only one that thought it was funny when the Swedish Chef was tangled in the film?
    (Kermit:Hey..what happened?"
    Swedish Chef*film wrapped around him": Derversh de flim go flipflipflipflip!!)
    When I saw TMM for the first time,I was about 9 & went with my older brother.When I saw the Swedish Chef's predicament,I laughed like crazy! My older brother was embarrassed because he thought I was the only one in the theater laughing at it!
    Anyone else think it was funny?
    Chef: Der flim is okeedokee! :D

    This was the funniest line he gave in TMM, but I always laugh out loud in TMTM when he holds the cups up to his eyes mocking 3D and goes "Doodly doo doo doo!"

    Indeed yes. He's very funny. I like it when he throws Popcorn. "The popcorn ees popping in yer face and it's, three-dee."

    Also, whenever I am holding two cups, I feel a moral reponsibility to put them to my eyes, and go. "Dooby doo doo bee do." I don't know why.

    No, you were not the only one to find that funny! The Swedish Chef has terrific cameos in all of the major Muppet films, and he's always good for a laugh.

    Is he, I assume he is, but where, is he in Muppet Christmas Carol? I can't recall.

    He's in the Fozziewig scene, with singing grapes. He was played by David Rudman for that scene.

    I liked how they used him in MTI. He was on the island with the pigs, wearing a pig nose. Some one on screen commented to the audience "How else were we going to work him into this movie" or words to that effect. Thought that was pretty funny.

    I adore the Swedish Chef, he is one of my favourite muppets [he has to be beaten by Astoria, Tutter and Beaker]

  14. Yeah they do have a hard time working him in a lot of the movies but I love his cameos. As far as MCC, that was one of my biggest complaints about the movie is that the main muppets have such small roles. Thats OK though its still a good movie especially for being the first major project in the post Jim Henson era.

    The Sweedish Chef is in the Muppet Party Cruise game. They have him wandering around the ship carrying a blunder buster gun. Where he tries to shoot chickens in the air.

    Chef also runs the projector at Muppet*Vision 3D.

    Kermit: Everything okay up there Chef?
    Chef: Hoppin hoppin da machine is goin da floomy floom!
    Kermit: Thats great!

    LOL, gotta love the Chef. :)

    I think with that film, you have to look at it as the Muppets being cameos in a regular film, where they are actors who auditioned roles and only managed to get small roles for once. That way, it's good.

    Also, I've noticed that everyone you speak to who knows very little about the Muppets says, "Oh, I loved Muppet Christmas Carol." Wonder why that is? And why that's the one they remeber?

    How old are the people you're talk to? Because for a lot of younger Muppet fans MCC was the first Muppet film they saw in theaters. And since its the best Muppet film since Jim's passing (IMO), I suppose it sticks with them.

    There is no accounting for passive fans my friend. Thats why I don't like 'em. :)

    These are all teenagers, mainly. I guess maybe it was the first film they saw and therefore it stuck with them. Hmmm. Strange though.
