    Double posting again....

    I changed my vote to Rowlf,because of all the compelling arguments. He really is Jim's best character.

    Probably why he isnt used much these days anymore, nobody can replace Jim playing Rowlf

    I see Rowlf as kind of a fringe character; sometimes he's right up front and very important, and then sometimes he's relegated to a background (sometimes nonspeaking) role.

    His appearance in The Muppets (TV) is pretty evident of this; doesn't appear for several episodes, and then appears for a very key emotional role.

    I picked rowlf because he was the first muppet to show on TV (besides kermit) and I love his music and dog jokes

    The first time he spoke after Jim's passing was in an episode of "Muppets Tonight."

    Yes, Rowlf is destroying the competiton. I like how if this were a poll anywhere else it would be 99.9% Kermit, 0.1% everyone else, same with the Frank Oz one, 99% Miss Piggy, 0.1% everyone else, but here everyone's voting for the others, and that's great. As for Rowlf, he's my favorite muppet, he's just so laid back and cool, I love his talks with Kermit, and he has a great sense of humor. Though besides TMS and the first three movies, he really didn't have much to do until TM'15 which gave him the best role ever, a bartender at a tavern, that was genuis, his talk with Kermit in Pig's In a Blackout was great, unfortunately his roles were limited, and the show was cancelled. But, Rowlf is one of those characters that doesn't appear much, even on TMS his appearances were limited, but it makes when he gets an appearance even better like his short but funny scene with Fozzie backstage in the Harry Belafonte episode, he's just a great character, and it's a good thing they didn't retire him completly. I hope he gets bigger roles in the next muppet productions.

    Eh, I'll give some love for Link. He's a funny character that doesn't get much use these days. [​IMG]

    (sorry, Kermit)
