I totally agree with Scalzi: Grover is indeed the Best Muppet Ever.

    Hmm. I’m not coming up with a favorite Muppet, but I know it wouldn’t be Grover. :)

    With all due respect to Grover, I’m more of a Fawzy fan.

    er, I mean Fozzi bear. Only as an adult do I realize that he was Italian.

    Grover was Mike’s. I’m partial to Big Bird and Cookie Monster, which is not surprising.

    @Chris: What have you got against Grover? :)
    @Frank: Fozzy is okay, but he lacks the sincere earnestness of Grover that I find appealing.
    @Katie: I assume you’re talking about the “old” Cookie Monster–back when he would go nuts for cookies–and not the “new” Cookie Monster, who encourages kids to eat veggies and fruit instead. Healthy eating is great, but the new Cookie Monster is just WRONG.

    As far as Sesame Street’s Muppets go, I’ll have to agree. _The Monster at the End of This Book_ was one of my favorites, and Maggie has loved it, too.

    As far as the Muppet Show cast goes, I’ll have to go with Kermit. It’s really not easy being green.

    Oh My DOG, I love Grover. I think he would actually be my favorite. But Oscar would be right on his heels in 2nd place by the slimmest margin!
