    This is a thread about the ugliest, most-nightmare-induceing versions of puppets and walk arounds.You know what I'm talking about. Puppets that look like they've been thrown into a blender and put together again. Or the horrible look of live stage show Muppet Show cast... Like, for example. Gonzo for Muppet Show on Tour... Nose and eyes are to small for his...horribly...swollen head.

    The first one is the one that bugs me the most... But I won't go into it...Seeing as it gives me nightmares. :concern:

    TMS on Tour walk-arounds look fantastic compared to the Disney MGM live shows from the early 90s. Mainly the EM.

    The bloated look of costumes works best for the Muppet Babies. Their designs are fairly nice. I've never been a fan of the adult Kermit costumes that range from pudgy to hideous. Some of the early Miss Piggy ones were good, but they've gone down hill.

    Gonzo is just a difficult character to get right. Palisades got him right, Sideshow pegged him nicely too and the poser certainly does him justice. They are all the exception to the rule of ugly Gonzos.

    I thought we were talking about actual Ugly muppets... because Miss Mousey would DEFINITELY be on that list. Sorry, Jim... but that one wasn't you're team's best work. Especially in that puffy turn of the 1800's old lady costume they got her wearing.

    Aww, I don't mind 'em. :) The MB one looks a little weird, but otherwise I think the rest are sorta cute.
