He's crazy I love him
Brian said a week ago
Agreed, and think we all like the idea of just being a bit crazy at times. As mentioned below, there's another Muppet character called Crazy Harry who likes to blow things up. It was a running gag for a while. These days, not sure he's be taken as quite as funny.

love the sax, so Zoot
Brian said a week ago
I never learned to play an instrument other than guitar, (which I didn't stick with) but if I did, sax would be the way I'd go, I like the sound of them.

Looks like another poll about wrapped up. In honor of the Mayhem and the Muppets themselves, here's their take on Bohemian Rhapsody as mentioned below. Thanks for the replies and comments!

Animal is a beast!!!
Brian said a week ago
A beast, wild man or something. Apparently his mother is named LaVerne, who first appeared in a picture book called The Case of the Missing Mother. Animal did a tribute to her during a solo in a "Bohemian Rhapsody" viral video. The actual drumming music for Animal was performed by Ronnie Verrell.

Gotta love Zoot!
Brian said a week ago
I tend to lean toward him as a favorite as well. Never played sax, but I like the sound of them. He's just a mellow sort of guy I could imagine having a few beers with and hearing his stories.

Janice (an early Joni Mitchell?)
Brian said a week ago
Well yeah, I can certainly see the Joni Mitchell connection and vibe to Janice for sure.

The Muppet show
Brian said a week ago
It ran for 5 seasons in the US from 1976 to 1981. It's a variety show, each episode featuring (human) guest star popular at the time. There were musical numbers, sketches and running gags. Often these were built around the guest star and their particular talents. Kermit the frog was both host and show manager, trying to keep things under control, sometimes with little effect.
