    It always made sense to me that he'd get most of the attention; he's clearly the band member with the most humor potential. He did get a bit overexposed on Muppet Babies perhaps, hehe.

    My main problem is that the rest of the band is overshadowed by him.

    Just going by the movies alone. I think that this had been the most times that they used Animal in one.

    Speaking like a fan. I wish they would make one center him. Or the Electric Mayhem especially.

    The Mayhem, Animal is popular enough as it is. I'd love to see Floyd actually DO something.

    Oh I think they are best when they're a group absolutely. But every group has a break out star, for better or worse, because they have the most mass appeal. It's like being the group's mascot.

    Yeah and if they had principal performers at the time, I am sure Rowlf and the Elecric Mayhem would of helped too.

    I agree that Scooter would of helped his fellow Muppets first...but...Scooter has been known to scream a buck or two whenever the time was good for it. Don't believe me? Than check out the Sylvester Stallone episode of the Muppet Show. He sold backstage passes to those Sly groupies, something Kermit did stated they don't give out (and they weren't given out, it cost them a bundle). Than Scooter did use the girls to get Kermit to agree to let them stay.

    Needless to say, I am NOT trying to put Scooter in a bad light here, I love Scooter. I am just saying indeed, indeed, he has scam a buck here or there, when the time was for it.

    Just because I would like to see Floyd more too. Also Dr.Teeth and Janice. But I can never have enough of Animal.

    That was a great opportunity for Floyd to do something since Jerry was around.

    I love how this just became a ramble about the Electric Mayhem. :)

    Just being safe, I didn't want to get a ban or something.

    Reminder... Scooter was not recast (or even attempted to be recast) until VMX... and even then, he changed performers 2 more times. So really, Scooter didn't have an official recast until a couple years back. A line was more of what we got out of him since Richard died by then. You really can't fault a movie for not having characters that weren't recast, and considered retired by then. That's why Rowlf only got by with "Awwww!" Same deal with the Electric Mayhem, minus Floyd... who SHOULD have said something. I still question why the heck Animal was given that much screen time during the clumsiest, most cumbersome part of the film. he didn't have that big a role in any of the prior films... even the first ones. Maybe the giant Animal that scared Doc Hopper Away. And frankly, that was a more significant sequence where he did something.

    So to basically have the character involved with the story, he'd either need to be recast officially (at least for the movie) or he'd be a mime for all of his onscreen appearances. The cameo was nothing more than a fan nugget in a film that had few of them. You look at the new Muppet movie where everyone is mostly recast and has a multiple word line at least, and you see how things have changed.

    Floyd did get a line during the "Brick House" sequence. Animal cuts past him in the bathroom line, and Floyd shouts "What? Hey man!"

    Dang! I got here 47 minutes late!

    Actually, I meant to say he should have done something... but he did have a couple lines.

    I still like my idea about Animal having to wait with Floyd patiently in the bus.

    That would have been awsome, Drtooth. I seriously think you should help re write and direct this movie, and release it again. :)
