    yeah, but other than that, i mean- gonzo has camilla at least, floyd has janice, kermit and piggy of course...it just seems with fozzie being one of the big four and all they should have given him somebody over the years

    Well I mean after you've had a Raquel Welch moment it's hard to move on, lol. ;)

    But seriously that's a good point about Fozzie not having anyone. I guess his character is sort of the insecure best friend who doesn't develop relationship as easily as the others.

    Well, you could maybe give Annie Sue to Fozzie, I mean she's a sweetheart and so is he <3

    I think confidence is a key reason why you never see Fozzy in a relationship. I mean, comparing Fozzy and Gonzo, they both go on stage and make absolute fools of themselves every show, but Gonzo has self-confidence in spades, while Fozzy has almost no self-confidence, making him an easy target for :sleep:&:boo:. Gonzo certainly fancies himself a ladies man, and every once in a while a female guest star will even get the hots for him, and it all comes down to confidence, just like in real life. Maybe if Fozzie had a little more confidence he'd get the girl.

    THANK you! I've thought the same thing about TMS Scooter all along. No wonder I like him so much. That's exactly who I am, too.

    A really romantic moment I liked: the whole conversation between Maria and Big Bird when Maria and Luis discovered that they were in love. It's so funny seeing how they incorporate Maria's side of it, too. You can tell how hard it is for her to explain the romance to a six-year-old muppet, who just doesn't get any of it at all. I'll see if I can find a link.

    Er... We do already have :smirk:, if that helps.

    BTW: A moment I like is when Linder Rönstadt sings I've Got A Crush to Kermit.

    It was common in late 60's folk/rock hippy bands for the girl in the band to have "been with" several of the other male members.

    George Tekei did not create the character of Sulu. Hunt created Scooter, and stated several times Scooter represented how he felt as an awkward teenager in high school. So just saying it's different than the character of Sulu. According to the official Muppet style guide, Scooter is around 14 years old...often the time any teen kid feels awkward. The new film The Sitter deals with a 13 year barely coming to terms with his sexuality. The only real time we get anything in the Muppet Show that could point to something is Scooter fawning over Stallone with all the fangirls backstage. I mean he reallllly likes Stallone, even if it's a mere fanboy thing. Anyways, regarding "alternate universe" in VMX, the Twin Towers still stand in NYC during a scene with Kermit and Piggy, so who knows what is to be gleaned from those scenes.

    All I'm saying, is that I could see an argument for Scooter possibly being gay much more than the "Bert and Ernie are gay" argument regardless of the true nature of the character. Then again, in another interview Hunt said he based Scooter off a school yard friend of his...so who knows.

    AMAZING! Love that song...another reason why M@WDW remains one of my TOP fave Muppet productions ever

    Well it's likely one of the writers created Scooter and that Richard contributed his own experiences to the character's personality.

    We do? I always thought he was a "smirk". Oh well; Link'll have to be "proud".

    Definitely one of the cutest moments I've seen. I also like Gina's song with Big Bird on the day of the wedding. Not romantic, per say, but very cute.

    Doesn't Fozzie have Beth who snuggled with him in the co-ed caves in Maine? Or Dora from the last issue of Family Reunion from the Muppet comics? Oh well, to each their own. :coy:

    Yeah that's what I meant...that's the dynamic used for so many of the beloved characters...that and the ol "um, uh...here, youre going to be this guy"(Kevin Clash's Elmo) I wish there was a documentary that went into Bonnie Erickson, Don Sahlin, etc
