    What's the one elusive Muppet item that you so desperately seek, that you know will take your collection to that special new level?

    That is a very good question.

    I guess for me it would be a prop from The Muppet Show, or from one of the movies. Maybe one of Miss Piggy's dresses!

    I don't collect Muppet stuff per say but there is one Muppet item I really want and have wanted since I was five years old. The Fisher Price Rowlf puppet. That was the first toy I remember desperately wanting. My mom searched all over creation for it as did my grandfather several states over. They never could find one. I'd love to find one now but I doubt I could afford it.

    Wow I think one of my brothers (or my parents) still has that somehwere. For me I'd lik to have either the photo puppet kermit or the Muppet backstage playset with Rowlf.

    I still have the Fisher-Price Rowlf puppet that the Easter Bunny brought me (along with the usual array of chocolate eggs) in 1981, when I was eight...He accompanied me and my wife, and the Christian youth group we run, to a December showing of The Muppets and has brought me much joy over the years.

    I have absolutely no intention of parting with him. He's still awesome.

    Fisher-Price also marketed a great Animal puppet (with INCREDIBLE eyes and teeth) at the same time and that's one of the few things I'd really love to add to my Muppet collection. Well, that and some Walter stuff.

    Another addition to my photo puppets (hinting and looking towards EFX to announce 'We are glad to inform you that.........') but dont think this one will happen :boo:

    I'd love to have a good Rowlf plushie, or a nice Scooter plushie, or a nice Dr. Teeth plushie, or a... you get the point.

    I wish it was financially feasible to have a comphrensive Muppet plush line.

    Anything Floyd related because of course I pick a minor character with little merchandise to be my favorite -_-

    Oh, come on, Floyd is cool. He delivered one of my all-time favourite Muppet Show lines in the Kaye Ballard episode about the band going on strike: "If I didn't know I was such a genius, I wouldn't listen to the trash I write."

    Floyd epitomizes the old comedic maxim that sometimes it's all in the delivery, like the Muppet Show episode where he tells Miss Piggy "Your Feet's Too Big!" because that's the title of the next production number and she's been struggling with her shoes for the previous minute or so.

    It's a silly line, but for some reason it works coming out of Floyd's mouth. Kind of like the recent interview clip for The Muppets with him and Janice, where he answers the question "What's the movie about?" with the predictable line "About an hour and a half" and it's still funny because it's Floyd saying it. Even the follow-up, "You see what I did there?" wouldn't work quite as well with another character.

    I'm personally thrilled that Matt Vogel seems to have Jerry Nelson's vibe with Floyd these days (in The Muppets, on A Red and Green Christmas - LOVE "The Man With The Bag"! - and in some of the virals and other projects).

    Anyway, this is a roundabout way of agreeing that we need more Floyd merchandise. I'd be happy to see the whole Electric Mayhem in plushes, actually.

    Hey, man, I'm the resident Floyd fangirl here :p I was being sarcastic. I'm also the resident snark ;)

    A Palisades anything, really. You'd think that be easy, but living in Europe really hikes up the shipping costs...

    Nice to meet you! Also cool to see Floyd has a "resident fangirl" on these boards - he deserves one! (I knew you were being sarcastic BTW...just felt like throwing Floyd some props, that's all.)

    I'd say The Muppet Show: Season Four, because it's still not out yet. Ask me again after it comes out, and I'll say The Muppet Show: Season 5. Or a box set of every Jim Henson Hour episode (even if it's only the MuppeTelevision portions).

    But when it comes to existing collectibles, I'd say Of Muppets and Men. Or the entire Playhouse Video collection. Or the book Jim Henson's Muppet Show Bill. Or Rowlf: Ol' Brown Ears is Back.

    One of the discarded Newsman puppets from the old days, if such a thing even exists. Even if he was "toast," I could use him as a basis to build my own spiffy new one, and he'd go everywhere with me. :news:

    The other thing I would love to have is Jim Henson's autograph.
