    Could that have been Tom Bergeron? I believe I remember him hosting the telethon with the Muppets previously, either a year or so ago.

    It was pretty obvious they didn't know I'd make a safe bet they thought he was a generic version of that sloth from the big big world show lol
    I mean unless those kids where dumb or something but I'm not one to believe children are dumb. ;)

    Well i saw most of Pepe and Rizzo on all of it last night and a little this morning. I recorded it. I did miss Bear's appearance. My record stopped due to me not programing the rest of the show. I have a DVR so that's why i missed Bear's but maybe get to see it on Youtube. But i really enjoyed it and was glad to see two other characters other then Johnny and Sal not to say i don't like them just glad it wasn't them again.

    Around 6:00am I left a tape in the VCR to record the MDA Telethon while I went to sleep. Pepe & Rizzo were singing there version of "Wake Up Little Susie" (only it was called "Wake Up Little Pledgers") :) :rolleyes:

    It was AWESOME!

    Oh my gosh that would be so insanely cool... :p

    But anyway, I had set my TiVo to record the whole telethon... or so I thought, but I soon found out that it can only record in eight hour incraments, so I just got the first eight hours of the telethon. Bear was nice to see... but I wanted to see Rizzo and Pepe! :p

    Here's the song they did.


    They appeared first with Jerry for four and a half minutes, and did about 22 minutes of hosting with Tom Bergeron. This song was their final appearance on the telethon.

    Ooo. Nice. The amount of Muppets on Youtube is staggering. I'm glad this got posted. Will you be going through what you have a posting the rest of their appearances?

    You've got to admire their work ethic. They were there for hours and did a rather nice finish. They were really on their game here.

    The guitar Rizzo used looked like the one that came with the Janice figure.

    It's very close, yes, but I don't think it's the same.

    Pepe & Rizzo introduction on 2007 Telethon

    I performed on the Jerry Lewis Telethon this year, and although I've done several tv appearances, I gotta tell you...I was STOKED that along with Tom Bergeron, Pepe & Rizzo were also on hand to introduce my spot. They were hysterical! After Tom mentioned my stage show in Lake Tahoe, Pepe adlibbed a nice confused statement about "Lake Taco?" And proceeded to make comments about how wonderful a whole "lake full of tacos" would be, etc...

    I'm still a kid at heart because that was my favorite thing about doing the telethon this year. And my son thinks I'm a God of course because Pepe & Rizzo introduced my act. Yes! : )
