    It's that time again, and this one is going to be fun! Today we are talking about Jerry Nelson and his characters on the Muppet Show.Now Jerry did have a lot of one time characters that would mostly sing songs. We are not really talking about them, because latter on we will focusing on that.
    Now I have a feeling how poll is going to go, but I maybe wrong. I know for a fact that one of Jerry's characters has a huge fan following. However I do hope this is not a one sided poll let the voteing/dissociation begin!

    I choose Robin as well. His song Just one Person gets to me every time I hear it.

    He did only include muppets from the muppet show.

    No ernie at the jim henson poll and no bert at the frank oz one!

    I chose Lew Zealand, Jerry Nelson had so many great one-note characters, and Lew Zealand is the most absurd and hilarious of them all. His introduction episode, the Marisa Berenson one, is great, and his GMC running gag, here are the paper towels, is one of the highlights of the movie.

    I had a hard time choosing but I finally went with Floyd. I love his voice, his singing, he's a great bass player and I just love him for being so silly yet simultaneously very chill.

    Wanna know why I never replied to this thread? Because it made my head explode. Dude did all of my favorite characters - :sing:, :crazy:, :fishy:.

    I went with Floyd, just because he wasn't a one-trick pony.

    Was it Robin? I get that; the character kind of transcends Muppets.
