8. Statler and Waldorf
These guys are mean, they heckle everyone and everything. Normally these are the kind of guys you hate, but man is it fun to hear them trash talk everything.
The giant scary brute that is easily the most terrifying Muppet couldn’t have a better name, the oddly named Sweetums has been everything from a pirate to a car jack.
6. Swedish Chef
No one knows what he says and he has a fascination with Miss Piggy, he wants to cook her. Between his awesome Swedish accent and amazing mustache there is no reason to not like Swedish Chef.
The loser, the underdog, the Ben Stiller of the Muppets is Gonzo, and much like Stiller people don’t really know what he is. Revealled to be an alien during Muppets from space Gonzo is just trying to fit in, with his Chicken girlfriend.
If you thought Sweetums was strange look at this guy, his name is Animal, yet he is one of the few non animal Muppets. He is harder to understand than Swedish Chef and has some serious anger issues. His Robot Chicken sketch about the fall of his band Electric Mayhem is still one of the best ever.
3. Miss Piggy
If women empowerment ever needed a symbol to stand behind this is it. Miss Piggy is the toughes broad around, she knows karate, is an A list actress, and is in a relationship with the Brad Pitt of Muppets.
Everyone has said a bad joke that doesn’t get any laughs, its the awkward feeling you never want to feel again. Now imagine everyone of your jokes being a dud and you have Fozzie, this is the guy everyone loves and nobody want to be.
The everyman, Kermit is always nice, always good, and never hurts anyone. Every kid wanted to be Kermit, whether it was interviewing aliens on the moon or playing banjo in the swamp, Kermit is an idol. In todays media hungry world where horrible people are idolized it’s good to see a role model like Kermit come back, he is hands down my favorite Muppet and it’s hard to argue that he is the number one Muppet of all time, he even had cross over success being the most popular Muppet on stage and on Sesame Street.
