I was late in coming to the Muppets. And, actually, it was my younger sister who introduced me to them, when we attended a Muppet exhibition at one of the museums in the L.A. area. And sometime after that, I got interested in them and started watching everything they did.

My favorite moment, and few people have seen it, is a show, starring the Muppets, that occurs on Disney Cruise Line. A show, that apparently occurs, only on the longer cruises. In this show, Kermit and Fonzie have taken over the ship's entertainment, despite some heckling from Statler and Waldorf. Miss Piggy has taken over one of the ship's suites, and no one has seen her except the masseurs from the ship's spa and the waiters from room service. The Swedish Chef has taken over the ship's galley. And Animal has taken over the steering of the ship, with some help from the ship's captain.

A wonderful show that features clips from some of the episodes from their television show and some of their movies. And it gives you a look at some of the ship's crew members, who you would not normally see, such as the engine crew, as the come on--on film--at the end of the show and sing "The Rainbow Connection" with the Muppets.

But, the supreme moment of show, has to be when the ship's cruise director comes on--dressed as a chicken--for part of the show.

I love the muppets and have been a lifelong fan.  Watching my son watch Sesame Street now brings back a lot of fond memories. 

For the Muppet Show I love Miss Piggy simply because a pig who thinks shes beautiful is funny on it's own.  Its that wonderful attitude that truly does her justice.  Statler and Waldorf always made me laugh.  Kermit is one of my all time favorites too.

Sesame Street, Oscar is my idol.  I also admire Bert's nerdiness.  For newer characters I think Baby Bear is funny due to his speech impediment.

I haven't seen The Muppet Treasure Island or The Muppet Wizard of Oz

The best scene in The Muppet Wizard of Oz was where the film suddenly jumps from the main story into an office where Quentin Tarantino is pitching a version of the previous scene to Kermit. The movie is pretty good, better than most of the other non-Henson Muppet movies, but not as good as the first two films.

Alot of people, who saw it, didn't like it. I did, though. My favorite moment is, paraphrasing here, when someone asked one of the Muppets, who they were, they said: "We're friends of Dorothy." Which sentence can be taken more then one way.

I was obsessed with the muppets for the longest time (that includes The Sesame Street Muppets). Can't choose a favorite film or moment. Jim Henson was amazing. R.I.P. Jim

I am a huge Muppet fan.  I love the original show and "Muppets Tonight".  My favorite movie has to be the original and I have too many favorite clips.  I love the episode with Elton John just because he is so...himself.  I also like the "Muppets Tonight" episode with Sandra Bullock.  "Phenomenon!"

God I love them, Judd Winnick lets the Protagonist in The Barry Ween Comics say about them:
"Socks with Attitude. God Bless Jim Henson." and  he really is  right about that.

Harry Belafonte first Performed the Banan Boat song on the show on Fozzy asks "What's a Taliman?" Nobody ever would.

And Gonzo is a more versatle actor than the most real ones and I was always eger as a Kid to see the trumpet sketch in the Beginning.

And I like the Beginning best, it had a great song,interesting characters and more promise than any other show intro.

And regarding the movies I always thought Tim Curry to be a Muppet (great Honour) and he was a great Pirate.

I lived for the Muppet show when I was a kid.   There are dozens of good moments there.  My favorite movie moments are from the Muppet Movie.
1) The Ice cream man- Bob HOpe wasn't it?  Fozzie ordered Honey ice cream, and Kermit got Grasshopper ripple. 
2) the Frog Killer- Some guy in a wetsuit and a bandoleer of frog gigs.

Have you looked a the number of cameos in the first two films? Not to mention the guest list on the show

Yes, Bob Hope was the ice cream vendor in "The Muppets Movie." I'll add that "The Muppets Movie" was the first
Muppet movie I saw, and for that reason or not, it is my least favorite of the Muppet movies.

One from the Muppet Movie:
James Coburn comes flying through the doors of a seedy saloon, and lands in a filthy gutter:  "That bar is the lousiest, crummiest, dirtiest garbage pit on the face of the Earth!!!"
Kermit, passing by with Fozzie:  "Uh, then why do you go there?"
Coburn:  "I'm the owner!!"
One from the TV show:
The entire skit with John Cleese playing a very terrible/ineffectual pirate, foiled at every attempt to be wicked by quizzical Muppets.

I used to watch the Muppet's when they had their TV show on CBS. Favorite movie was the Treasure Island one with Tim Currey, of all people, and favorite moment was when I was given Doctor Teeth and the Electric Mayhem poster when I was thirteen. Yes, I'm that old. Besides getting rooked on Ebay, would anyone know where I can get another poster like that?

Welcome aboard, sleepyweas3l.  That is from "Muppets from Space," right?  I couldn't enjoy that one as much as much as some of the others, though it did have a few high points and memorable quotes.
