[AtoZChallenge] M is for... Muppets

There are quite a few ‘M’s when it comes to Disney characters, not least Mickey! But as I have covered Star Wars, I should also like to mention the Muppets! I have a favourite Muppet, can you guess? We have passed the letter already…He is blue…has a nose like a tap…yep, Gonzo….he had always been my favourite, my sisters back in the day was Fozzie Bear.
I guess I probably saw characteristics in Gonzo that I related to myself and…well…my nose isn’t that bad! Lol and I’m not that blue! Eek!
There are a lot of things to love about the Muppets, the variety of characters, the fact that you know they are puppets and yet still the story isn’t lessened by this, none of this modern day animation (at least not in the movies).
Have you got a favourite muppet? There are a lot that I also like, Miss Piggy for one, then ‘the old guys’, animal I always liked and Ralph the dog and….ok…yep…pretty great characters!
So what crafts are there that we can do that are Muppet related? Hmmm…lets see three that appealed to me…


Muppet Rocks!

    1. Hehe! I've always wanted to be able to do impressions but alas I'm very bad at them.

  2. Grover is my favorite. And if you know anything about Grover, than you will know a lot about me. I do think there is a special hook between the Muppet Character we love the most and us.

    1. Ooh! Yes! I literally cannot think of a bad muppet! Anyone any ideas?

    2. I have never been a fan of Miss Piggy, but that's a side effect of a puppet show that our 4-H club put on in primary school and the heifer that had the Miss Piggy puppet.

  4. I liked the old guys in the balcony and Gonzo.

  5. I have a soft spot for the grouch. Not that I am one (at least I don't think so), but sometimes I wish I could be!
