Who’s your Muppet?

 

Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human traits, emotions, or intentions to non-human entities. It is considered to be an innate tendency of human psychology to give human traits to our non-human friends. It’s slightly different than personification.

 

Truly a genius literary device used by Jim Henson to provide perspective and self-observation through the Muppet characters. Kermit the frog is kind and compassionate, loyal and funny. He’s likened to a straight man in a Monty Python sketch. Gonzo is described as weird. Maybe it’s weird, not to be weird. Miss Piggy is a force of nature. A prima-donna pig, convinced she is destined for stardom. There’s Beaker and Scooter and The Swedish Chef. My personal favorites are Statler and Waldorf. The 2 elderly Muppet characters known for their cantankerous opinions and shared penchant for heckling. How about Rowlf the Dog, or Rizzo the Rat, or Sam the Eagle? Each one expressing a unique personality trait, much like our human friends. For fun, I encourage you to play a game with your closest friend. Ask them to describe you in just a few words or, liken you to a Muppet.

    My favorite is Rowlf due to the great story of how Jimmy Dean gave Jim Henson his first big break - Rowlf appeared as Jimmy's sidekick on Jimmy Dean's TV Show from 1963 - 66 (in 85 of 86 episodes) and it was the first regular spot on national television for any Muppet. Jim Henson was so appreciative to Jimmy Dean for the exposure that he offered Jimmy Dean a 40% stake of the Muppets. Dean refused saying he didn't deserve that. This tells us something about both Jimmy Dean and Jim Henson! BTW, that version of the Jimmy Dean Show currently airs on RFD TV.

    Always loved big bird because he was such a cheer leader and so encouraging, honest and tried to be self aware.
    Faves to watch Ernie and Bert. Lol.

    That is a tough one....on one hand gonzo has theatrical gusto I admire and an odd ball nature too.....then there is Kermit who is the leader I always liked that.....Sam the eagle also has that leadership persona at least until he realizes that people are not listening...or Animal who is just so wacky crazy and just does not care what others think...I think that my Muppet persona is most likely Grover...he is a teacher, a learner, a leader and of course SUPER GROVER....and do not forget the iconic Muppet song that goes with my Grover identity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4jbq9SVxAc

    Hmm, perhaps a combination of Kermit and Oscar. My daughter was obsessed with Miss Piggy as a child, probably still is. We have never missed a Muppet's movie. Great perspective.
