  • Fozzie the Bear - He's a cuddly, fuzzy bear who tells the funniest jokes around. Fozzie is always there to make his friends laugh and cheer them up when they're down.
  • The Great Gonzo - Gonzo is quite the daredevil and is usually attempting some sort of high-flying stunt.
  • Animal - Animal is one mean, lean drumming machine. He may seem a little wild, but deep down, Animal is a loveable muppet.
  • Statler and Waldorf - These two hecklers sit up in the balcony and shout insults at everyone who goes on stage. They were named after two famous hotels in New York.

Theme Song

It's time to play the music
It's time to light the lights
It's time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight.

It's time to put on makeup
It's time to dress up right
It's time to raise the curtain on the Muppet Show tonight.

Why do we always come here
I guess we'll never know
It's like a kind of torture
To have to watch the show

And now let's get things started
(Why don't you get things started)
It's time to get things started
On the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational....
This is what we call the Muppet Show!

The fact that you're cussing me out proves that you're the sensitive one. not me :) I was just stating my opinion  . Now since you want to be a baby and curse when you get upset. Maybe you get off the forums and go back to listening your 'music'. Have a nice day. :)

-bangs head- I'm sorry, but your grammar and spelling is getting on my last. I'm talking about kids who parents DON'T want them seeing this song. KW could get in trouble if parents see this. And if you're going to post those lyrics. Post them in the LYRICS section with a warning that it may have cussing and or worst. Dude. (And I'm on my phone. And still had better spelling and grammar.)
