The Characters:  

  • Wobert - Okay, so his name is really Robert, he can't say it right either. An idealistic hedgehog who just joined the Feebles.
  • Lucille - One of the few other "nice" people and Wobert's true love. She's some sort of pooch.
  • Heidi - The hippo, talented star of the Feebles Variety Hour show. Goes off the deep end and slaughters a horde of other puppets with a machinegun.
  • Bletch - Walrus manager of the Feebles, he uses and abuses others - including Heidi. Massacred in a big way by his ex.
  • Trevor - The dirty rat, literally. Sinister assistant to Bletch he's been dealing drugs to the other puppets and making pornos in the basement. Loses a quickdraw contest to Heidi and becomes ratloaf.
  • Wynyard - Frog who came back from Vietnam hooked on pretty much everything, he even has flashbacks at times. Manages to impale himself during a knife throwing performance.
  • Harry - Rabbit, a famous actor who believes he is dying of a STD for most of the film. (He likes bunny menage a trois'.) Finds out it's only "bunny pox" at last, walks out into the hall, and Heidi blows his head off.
  • Sebastion - Gay director of the Feebles Chorus, a homosexual and extremely hyper fox. (As in the animal.)
  • Barry - Bulldog enforcer for Bletch, a huge spider bites his head off.
  • Arthur - The worm, one of the other "nice" guys.
  • FW - The fly, a reporter for the local tabloid out to find dirt on the Feebles. Bletch flushes him down the toilet.
  • Sidney, Sandy, and Baby - Sidney is the elephant, he trains these little furball things. Sandy (a chicken) is taking him to court for child support, he denies it's his. She has her head blown off during Heidi's rampage. (Of course the dead body runs around.)
  • Samantha - Slut cat who has been having an affair with Bletch, loses all nine lives to the machinegun.
  • Dennis - Panty sniffing anteater, he snorts Borax by accident and melts down.
  • Cedrick and Louie - Warthog and mangy dog, both are drug suppliers who Bletch kills for trying to rip him off.
  • Abi - Indian contortionist whose head gets stuck in his rectum, finally pops it free in time for a bed of nails to fall on his head.

The Plot: 

The Muppets never acted like this group of miscreants, not that we know of. Possibly the most disturbed puppet show ever filmed and definitely not for kids, of course the machinegun toting hippo on the cover should convey that idea.

"The Feebles Variety Hour" is going to air a special live performance, tensions are high, things could get ugly.

Into the harsh world of real life show biz stumbles Wobert, ready for his chance at live theater. Boy is this theater alive, Bletch has managed to hide his affair from Heidi until the cat starts taunting her with it. Heidi really gets upset, retreating to her dressing room and binge eating. Good old Bletch just goes on with his business, planning to replace his main hippo with the slutty Siamese after the television special.

Fortunately for the doe eyed hedgehog, not everyone is corrupt and jaded. (darn near, but not all). He soon falls in love with Lucy and wins her heart with a serenade. There's a bump in the romantic road when Trevor drugs her drink and takes advantage of her (Wobert walks in), but in the end they make up. The same can not be said for Bletch and Heidi, he dumps her in a most humiliating fashion, she then proceeds to go high and to the right. Grabbing an M60 machinegun and massacring everyone in sight high and to the right. Possibly one of the most amazing scenes in history where you have a hippo walking around and gunning other puppets into hamburger, oh she gets Bletch too.

First and foremost I'd like to say I never need to see ANY puppets having sex again. I thought anatomically correct Cabbage Patch Dolls were too much - that's nothing compared to seeing a cow engaging in S&M with a bug. In a similar fashion Sebastion's "Sodomy Song" and dance routine was totally warped, it's something else, you try watching a gay fox thrust it's pelvis at the camera. All of this accompanied by soft music and stage props which really frightened me. Did I mention the fly sitting in the toilet, on a um, floater? Oh yes, digging in with a spoon and chowing down while asking Harry if it's one of his (evidently had a carrot aftertaste).

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • You don't want to see a walrus having sex with a cat.
  • Fish should never conduct casting calls with a walrus, especially if they suck. Shellfish should avoid them even if they don't suck.
  • Female hippos are well endowed.
  • Having someone vomit on you can wreck a golf swing.
  • Cows are into S&M.
  • Never let a heroine addicted frog throw knives at you.
  • Last thing I needed to see was a fly eating shit with a spoon.
  • Frogs fought in Vietnam.
  • Your head can fit inside your rectum.
  • Hippos and porch swings don't mix.
  • Never snort bleach.

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 2 mins - What did that rat just say? Get the kids out of the room!
  • 8 mins - Love at first sight, are dogs and hedgehogs compatible?
  • 12 mins - Wobert, you cannot talk worth a darn.
  • 17 mins - That puppet is urinating.
  • 26 mins - Little bunny three way hopping through the bedroom?
  • 33 mins - Uggghhh...
  • 57 mins - No way a cat is doing that to Bletch...
  • 76 mins - Heidi, you are a hippopotamus. A stronger rope than that is in order.
  • 84 mins - Hippo with a machinegun, RUN LIKE A BITCH!


  • Cedrick: "It's a lovely course; I'm tempted to join the club myself."
    Bletch: "No chance of that I'm afraid, Cedrick."
    Cedrick: "You mean they discriminate against Scots?"
    Bletch: "No, we just don't like assholes in the clubhouse."

Heidi goes postal with the machinegun. This surprised me, who would have thought the old puppets would have had so much blood in them?

I first showcased this film at one of my cult film festivals. I don't usually run films that I haven't previewed myself but I thought it would be nice to go through the first-time experience with the rest of my friends. The first 30 minutes I became kind of worried because I had a hard time adjusting the volume between actually hearing the dialogue and being annoyed at all the noises. When the movie failed to draw me in at the beginning I thought the movie was going to bomb with my guests. The thing with MEET THE FEEBLES is that you have to stay with it. If I was to describe this movie to someone I would liken it to a fatal car crash that no matter how bad it was you can't help but keep staring at it. Definately different.

This movie rocks so much that we make our fraternities pledges watch it every semester!! It has been tradition ever since we found it! The best part is it's all puppets! If it was people it wouldn't be nearly as cool.

Definitely one of the most bizarre movies ever made! A true classic in every sense of the word and a must-see! You'll never look at the muppets the same again!!!

I saw this weird, funny, disturbing movie many, many moons ago.  Even though I only watched it once I can still remember certain scenes quite clearly, it's that good (and that disturbing).  A truly warped movie, but one that is quite funny.  It's about time somebody gave The Muppets the satirical thrashing they deserve (and I LOVE the Muppets mind you).

I own this movie and watch it regularly...think I've seen it 20 times in 4 months. Each time my wife says I laugh like I've never watched it before!  When friends come around, we get blind and I make them watch it. We speak it at work, at home, at play, get the picture. I've got it and I'll never be the same again!

This is the Greatest Movie ever (Second only to Who Framed Roger Rabbit for me). Where else are you going to see a hippo with knockers bigger than Anna Nicole's? The Fox has some pretty damn funny (yet dead on) one liners and conversations in him. The aptly cast Rat henchman is also pretty deadpan yet hilarious. Much better than Death to Smoochy

This movie is great! It has a fly eating puppet crap, a frog using drugs to forget his memories of Vietnam, a hippo going insane with a maching gun and a gay fox doing a crazy performance you will have to see to believe. These aren't animals, folks. They're PUPPET animals! There is much more outrageous stuff in Meet The Feebles. Never EVER show this film to a child under 13 years old(I saw when I was 13 and I'm still that age as I type this)because young children will be scared of puppets for the rest of their lives(well, probaly). The same might do to you. If you ever see this movie, you will never look at puppets the same way again. I guarantee it. Ugh. After seeing that puppet fly eat Harry's(the rabbit)crap, I'll never want to eat chopped up meat and carrots mixed together in my whole life(it looked like it. Go see it for yourself).
The sickest scene: FW(the fly that eats feces)eating puppet poop(that's the fourth time I've mentioned that!)
The funniest scene: Sabastion(the gay fox)doing his shocking performance.
Scene you don't want your parents to see you watching: Samantha(a slut cat)having sex with Bletch(the owner of the show).

This really is one of the most amazing of all the totally sick flicks out there. Along with "Bad Taste" and "Braindead", this is proof that Peter Jackson has the right rancid stuff. All three films are bloodier and more tasteless than almost any movie you're likely to come up against, and you've got the right stuff if your Domino's pizza won't come up against you as you watch these classics in s**tty taste. "Meet the Feebles" itself is definitely a film that has to be seen to be believed. It just rules, man!

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
