I pointed out that your post minimized his contributions and appearances when the truth is that Bobo has been around quite a lot since 1996. In fact, the character turns 18 next March. While hasn't achieved the stature of Kermit or Fozzie, I'd say he is right underneath them these days. At least with those who have been following the Muppets over the past two decades. Personally, I'm familiar with all the characters. I was raised on the Muppet Show and the first film I saw in the theaters was 1979's Muppet Movie.JV, I know that he had major roles in MT, MFS, and TM 2011. That's exactly what I said in my post. I'm not saying that nobody has ever heard of Bobo. My point is that if we classified Muppets as A-listers (Kermit, Piggy) through D-listers (Angus, Brewster), Bobo would be somewhere in between: again, not as famous as Sam, Scooter and Rowlf, but certainly not like Droop or Angus. I guess I'm too familiar with the Jim Henson-era Muppets, because I never considered Bobo a major character. Anyhow, I enjoyed Bobo's appearance in the Gaga special and I hope that they continue to use him in future Muppet projects.
