...are old enough to remember the Muppet Show.

Among my favorite bit players were Beaker and the Swedish Chef. To this day, about once a year in some social setting that seems to call for it, I'll say something in Swedish Chef-ese for a laugh.

I wasn't the only Chef lover, apparently. Check this out:

PostSubject: I watched the Muppets.   Mon Oct 06, 2008 9:27 am

I grew up watching the Muppets, and I catch myself doing the Swedish chef on occasion (as well as others as the occasion warrents). Back when school let out this spring we (my kids & I) were checking out youtube. There was Alice Cooper on the Muppets doing 'Schools Out For The Summer", with a bunch of monsters, it was great. We were singing it for weeks.

I don't really have a favorite muppet. It was the whole experience.
Has anyone seen the Muppet Christmas Carol? That is a classic.

My family used to drag the TV upstairs so we could all watch Muppet Show... I didn't understand a great deal of it, but that doesn't mean I still didn't love it. The Dr. Bunsen Honeydew & Beaker sketches always cracked me up.

Now, I wish that there really was a Sam the Eagle character, who came out when the moment was right, and declared:

"You are ALL... weirdos."

It seem like so many things need someone to say that.

I think some of my favorite muppet shows were the ones with Steve Martin in them.

The Muppets are a Classic. I actually remember going to see the "Muppets Movie" at the theater, and yes I also do the Swedish Chef voice every now and then... haha. Whenever I do it my kids just look at me weird. I also really enjoyed all the old Sid and Marty Kroft shows (Land of the lost, Sigmund the sea monster etc..etc).

Hiram,
I too remember Land of the Lost and Sigmund. Land of the Lost was our (me and my two older brothers) favorite for a while. I have a friend who named his little sister Holly after the Holly on L.otL.. Remember the Slestacks (sp)?
