Whatever Happened To Leroy?

    Hi everyone. Today, during a very boring lecture in math class, I began to think. Catgut, Rover Joe and T.R. (Not to mention the ever-popular Chickens and Rats) all appeared on The Muppet Show after their appearances in The Muppet Musicians of Bremen. Why didn't Leroy appear here also? Was it because of his size and the way that he had to be performed (Though I read on Muppet Wiki that there were 2 puppets used for him)? He could've been used for so many numbers (I thought, "Barnyard Boogie", and as one of Milton Miller's singing animals). Any thoughts?

    Well I think Leroy thought show bussiness and too shallow and left for a nice quite life in the country. From what I understand he's very happy with his wife and two kids.

    Or nobody brother to use him in the Muppet show, I don't know. :sympathy: :confused: ;)
