Fozzie was always my favourite muppet as a kid, and when I got a bit older and realised he was brought to life by the great Frank Oz, I loved him even more. Henson creations in general are just magical. The muppets, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, all classics. I sincerely hope that CG effects never completely take the place of these beautiful, practical creations, as they just can't come close to the way the physical character moves with weight and momentum, emotes and has actual presence on screen.
Can't wait to see what the other lads come up with.
P.S.- I must point out that this sketch is obviously a bit of an ode to one of my favourite artists of all time, Bill Watterson. Bet he loves the Muppets too.
