    Whilst it can never be argued I LOVE the Muppets, this appearance has only confirmed further just how much I HATE the more recent Fozzie puppet. It has lost so much of the character - lets just hope he get's fixed in-time for the new movie :o

    I think the reason the puppet looks that way is because the fur they used to make the older models is no longer produced.

    I wasn't really paying much attention to Fozzie. I was too excited with the fact they were on. :o

    From experience, I know for a fact that the fur used on previous Fozzie's can be found or atleast replicated to be indistinguishable from the original fur, an avenue Disney or Puppet heap clearly haven't explored.

    However in addition to the bad choice of fur, his eyes look smaller and/or are placed differently, his pupil placement is just plain off - making him look spaced out, the sculpture on the top lip seems to have gone as has his trademark overbite and the whole shape of the head looks sloppy and lacking character when compared the the Fozzie of yesteryear - other than that, he's perfect :sympathy:

    Why has this turned into "bash the Fozzie puppet" thread? :p

    Sorry :o, I'm just a huge fan of our favourite furry, fuzzy, funnyman!

    Pepé was awesome as usual!!

    Well since were on the subject I don't really like the overbite they gave him but I think I'm getting used to it. *shrugs*

    Missed it this morning....:( Which Muppets, in specific, were on this morning? I hear Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy, Swedish Chef, Pepe and Rizzo, but is that all? On the brighter note, can't wait to watch them on The Voice tonight.

    There's clips already online where you can watch their performance. But yes those are all the ones who made an apperance. I was surprised to see Rizzo and the Chef though so that was nice!

    Also Gonzo, Snowths, the chickens, and Statler & Waldorf. :D Plus the Cee-Lo Muppet (forgot his name) singing in place of Cee-Lo.

    They weren't only there to perform, they also sat at the table during some news segments, as well as helping out in the control room, "backstage" clips, and outside commentary. ;)

    All in all, a fantastic appearance! Can't wait to check my DVR for their Voice performance, then onto the Rockefeller show tomorrow night! :excited: Love me some primetime Muppets!

    I hope Gonzo and Fozzie get rebuilt for the new movie, the actual puppets are really off. I think the best Fozzie puppet was used in the Milton Berle Muppet Shor episode. And the better Gonzo was the one used in the eighties.

    What is it with the posts about the Fozzie and Gonzo puppets looking off?? Sheesh.

    You do know the purpose of a forum, right? ;)

    Not sure what your trying to get at with that.

    I meant that a forum is "an internet message board where users can express ideas and views on a particular issue" in other words it's a place for people discuss their opinions...which is what was happening.

    No offence intended.

    Yes I understand that...but it was just kinda weird how two posts were made complaining about the Fozzie puppet being off.​
    But anyways...moving right along I just watched the part again where Pepe keeps flirting with Lara and I still bust out laughing. I think it's more that he got everyone else cracking up.​

    If you love Pepé you really oughta check out Kermit and Pepés interview on the Empire podcast - probably the funniest improv they've ever done!
