What are your main six muppets. For the longest time when Jim Henson was around, I always thought the main six muppets were Kermit, Piggy, Rowlf, Fozzie, Scooter, and Gonzo. I still consider them the main six, in my opinion. (Not including the Electric Mayhem, of course.) But in recent years it's been Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Rizzo, and Animal, or Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal, and Pepe. Don't know why Pepe would be part of the main six in recent years, but it seems he managed to move up in ranks since his debute in Muppets Tonight.
