I’m just another Muppet

If you were a muppet, what would you look like? Are you a person, monster, animal, something else?

I remember watching The Muppet Show when I was at Nautical College, in the late 1970s. The T.V. room used to be packed solid at least a half hour before the programme started, with an all-male group whose minimum age was around 20, up to those senior students in their mid-thirties. For what was, at least on the face of it, a spin-off from Sesame Street, a children’s programme.

And I remember the re-runs in the 1990s when my own children would scramble to be ready to sit and watch the same episodes that I remembered. I recorded some of the shows on VHS for them and they would watch them so often that they could almost recite the scripts.

At both viewings, we used to laugh so much that it was almost painful.

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that I haven’t answered the question yet, I’m coming to that.

On a personal level, I’d probably identify closest to the Swedish Chef.

He and I are very similar characters. I invariably have several things running at once and chaos often ensues. Through it all I remain blissfully unaware and moderately contented, chattering away as it all falls apart.

Which muppet other people see me as is a matter for them, I’d rather not know.

Until next time.
