How many of you remember the Muppet Show?

My brothers and I used to love watching that show when we were kids. But the airtime of the series seemed to be quite erratic... because I don't remember being able to watch it every week consistently.

Something I was watching on TV the other day made me suddenly start thinking about The Muppet Show... I started rambling on to hubby about all my favourite characters from the show...

Thee characters that stood out in my memory were:

Miss Piggy and her insane obsession and stalking of Kermit the Frog

Gonzo the Great and his death defying stunts that always fell apart

And the character that always cracked us up the most was...

Animal, the neurotic drummer.

Here's my favourite clip of 'Animal' - the one where he does 'Fever' with Rita Moreno.

I remember my bros and I doubling over with laughter each time Animal bashes the drums whenever Rita sings "...FEVER!!!"

(Sam/Paul, are you smiling yet?)

And for those of you who don't know who this 'Animal' is... this next clip should be a good little introduction to his character
