    That would awesome if it's true about Bean Bunny!! I don't think I've seen him since VMX in 2002. Or he may have also made a brief or background appearance in MWoZ? I can't remember, I haven't seen that film in years.

    I think Bean showed up as a silent extra in MWoZ . . . which is pretty much what he was relegated to since MCC or so: as Steve put it, "always the victim."

    That's kind of surprising to me that they did that to Bean Bunny so soon after MCC, since according to Brian Henson on the MCC commentary a lot of people said Bean was their favourite character after seeing the film.

    I thought them turning Bean into the victim was something of a jab at saccharine, cutesy characters.

    Oh, I didn't mean the victim part. I meant I was surprised they relegated him to silent extra soon after MCC.

    They say they started using Bean less because Steve Whitmire started developing other characters,taking over Kermit and expanding Rizzo. But to me this explaination seems a bit odd because now Steve plays even more characters then he did in the 90s. He's taken over the Newsman,Link Hogthrob and Statler.

    Funnily enough, Bean still shows up in merchandise every now and then. Guess they just struggled finding a place for him other than as the 'victim.'

    I think they can find a nice balance between the cute innocent one and the victim,kind of like his role on MCC.

    Not to sound disrespectful to your opinion, but I think that's a little unfair. That argument would make more sense for a movie, when you only have a few hours of screen time to spread around. The great thing about having a TV series is that you can have a large number of characters, because there are new episodes continually coming out each week. Look at The Muppet Show, and how many great characters they were able to explore. They were able to do that, because not every character is in every episode, allowing more time to explore more characters.

    I don't think including Walter would necessarily take away from other characters.

    I just think they're giving time other establish characters like Deadly or Chip.

    The fact that as of last month, Walter started putting things on Facebook again, gives me confidence that we'll see him soon.

    I don't usually like to say this but since they hired Bean to be the cute one, but that video was actually really cute. I'd like to see these two together more often :).
    Also, the part at the end with Scooter was pretty funny too.
