I'm mixed on the issue. He's not my favorite character, but I think he has his moments when he's funny. I think the reason that a lot of people (myself included at first) disliked Pepe in the late 90s/early 2000s is that he started to be used too much. I remember being worried that he was going to get the "Elmo" treatment and overshadow everybody, but luckily they've toned him down a bit. I think that in TM2011 and MWW Pepe was used perfectly. They brought him in for a joke, but he didn't overshadow Rowlf, Scooter, the EM, etc. I also think that out of all the Muppets introduced in Muppets Tonight, Pepe and Bobo were the best, and they're the only ones currently being used.
