Pepe, I think needs a good scene partner to be funny. Back in those Toyota commercials wasn't he paired with Kermit in one? And then it was Rizzo and Rowlf in the other? Pepe can be effective with Rizzo. I think the Sean Penn/champagne exchange was hysterical. I wonder if they get paired so often because it is much easier to frame the shots with the two smaller characters together? But too much of them together gets monotonous. Both characters are to some extent "players" and it can escalate too quickly. They should try pairing Pepe in a scene with an opposite character like Sam. Sam could be giving network notes to Pepe for example. Also Pepe gives Bill a chance to do some improvising. "I am Barrack Obama. I can have whatever I want for dinner." is also a very funny line.But pepe gets too much screen time. he ALWAYS seems to have a big part in an episode even though there are plenty of muppets that need love. As for bobo; bobo is likeable and adorable. I love him.
I just NEVER really lied pep from the very start. I always thought of him as this annoying little jerk. sure he does have a FEW times where he's actually thinking about others but... bleh. they just need to tone him down or make him a background character for once. Every time I see pep I wanna crush him under something or punch him in the face.
Why not have a plotline about Big Mean Carl?
I'd give Carl one and a half notes. But I do think he is best served by the writers revealing only little tidbits about him. "I'm the youngest of nine!" And his aborted talking head in the first episode where he started talking about his father and the cameraman chases after Kermit and Piggy.Eh,Carl's a bit of a one note character.
I wasn't saying that. I was just saying it was the end of Denise's relationship with Kermit. I'm on your side in wanting to see Denise on the show again.What would have been the point of creating the character and building a puppet for it if they were going to get rid of it anyway?
