I think for a lot of years now they've been down playing Fozzie's intelligence as a character and I'm not sure how that came to be. The worst was in MTI with the whole Mr. Bimbo thing. Wasn't funny, just made Fozzie out to be kind of pathetic and sad and didn't have a mind of his own. Fozzie to me was always the gentler, loveable lug of the core Muppet group who always tried hard with his jokes, and his spirit was in that he kept trying no matter how much Statler and Waldorf mocked him, etc.Yes, the Scooter mom thing is being overdone.
Zoot is so funny, but it still feels weird having him be so outgoing all of a sudden.
This show has found its footing; now I'm just wondering what the "soft reboot" will be all about.
I don't know if they quite understand Kermit & Fozzie. I was never under the impression that Kermit was the dad and Fozzie was the baby. Kermit was always in charge, but he respected him more. Like Fozzie isn't Chris Griffin-stupid as depicted in the rubberband scene. Here we go with the stereotypes again...
