    Does anyone know where I might be able to buy muppets toys.. like Gonzo or Miss Piggy?
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Believe it or not:
    The Swedish Chef.

    It just wasn't as cool of a nickname. Statler and Waldorf are up there though.

    So many characters to have a favourite.

    it would have to be between lew zealand (the fish juggler) and the chickens. My favourite episode is probably the one starring spike milligan. I remember the union jack boxers.

    Definitely Gonzo!

    Miss Piggy used to scare the crap outta me when I was younger.. she was so mean and violent. I had the bottom bunk and my older sister told me Miss Piggy was going to come and get me since I slept with a Gonzo doll at night-

    Painful memory there, folks-

    My favorite muppet of all time is "Crazy Harry". He doesn't show up often, but he usually makes a big impression when he does (usually involves things exploding).

    My other fave is Lew Zealand (the boomerang fish thrower)...

    The muppets that used to scare the crap out of me were the everyday things that then came alive... like the feather dusters, or the fruits, or tins of marmalade. But then, the clown in Poltergeist and the Snuggles fabric softener bear both freak me out (still)... so uh... maybe it's just me.

    OH MY GOD!!!! That clown in Poltergeist just scared the living sh** out of me when I was a kid. I've hated clowns ever since. It was only reinforced after IT, book and movie.

    I've always been scared of clowns, although I've grown up enough not to run away screaming anymore. It has more to do with the conflicting facial signals than the poltergeist though. After all, how many clowns actually look happy underneath the makeup?

    You may have picked the wrong profession.
