Waka Waka Fozzie Bear Doll - The Muppet Show


I loved my Fozzie Bear stuffed bear in 1978.

Although I remember watching The Muppet Show every week, I don't remember being that crazy about it. Weird, I know. To be honest, I was more of a Sesame Street kid.

I will say this, the best part about The Muppet Show was Fozzie Bear. I loved him. Something about him reminded me of one of my uncles - I think it was his voice and tone. One of my relatives gifted me a brand new Fozzie Bear stuffed bear one Christmas. I have a feeling it was my grandma. 

My Fisher Price Fozzie Bear stuffed bear was so soft and sweet. I loved his little hat and pink and white polka dot tie. Today the Fozzie Bear doll goes for about $20 on eBay.

The kids watched The Muppet Show, but I don't think we ever had any of the characters. However, I still have a number of characters from Sesame Street.

As a kid I don't remember being attached to any one particular Muppet, though as I grew older and became fond of pigs I re-discovered Miss Piggy, of course.

When I was younger, probably in the late '80s or early '90s, I had 3 small(ish) stuffed Muppet Baby toys of Kermit, Fozzie, and Miss Piggy. Each was dressed in a Christmas outfit; I loved Piggy's red-and-white dress. I think I still have Miss Piggy...

I had a Fozzie Bear, too! He was definitely one of my favorite Muppets.

To know him is to love him.

Ally, aw. That is so cute.

I am a huge Muppet Show fan. I have the first three seasons on DVD and really wish Disney would get on the stick and release more of them. Maybe with the new movie coming in November they'll kick in the marketing machine and give us a couple more. Great stuff.

Fozzie was fantastic, but Miss Piggy was my favorite. It was something about her attitude, I think. I remember watching The Muppet Show on occasion, but The Muppet Babies were a staple on my TV growing up.

Most of my experience with the Muppets were Muppet Babies as well now that I think about it.

No doubt about it; Fozzie was the coolest muppet.
