The Most Annoying Things About Being a Muppet Fan

Kyle Mahoney - Awhile back, I was chatting with the Mindset's own Ryan Dosier about obnoxious things that happen to us as Muppet fans. I decided that it should be put into an article so all Muppet fans could revel in the annoyance. I even asked other Muppet fans for their submissions. If you would like to submit more annoying things for a future article, email us at muppetmindset@gmail.com. Anyway... here it is!
  • Everyone who sees the following pictures will put them on your Facebook wall:
  • Explaining the following things to your friends:
    • What exactly Fraggle Rock is
    • The Muppets and Sesame Street are the kind of the same thing but kind of not
    • The Disney buyout of the Muppets its affects Kermit's presence on Sesame Street
    • Ernie and Bert are just friends
    • Sesame Street is still okay to watch when you're into your 20s
  • Coping with the cruel realities of...
    • Still not being able to own Seasons 4 and 5 of The Muppet Show
    • Admitting Studio DC: Almost Live and The Muppets' Wizard of Oz both happened
    • Not being able to find any Fraggle Rock stuff
    • People not knowing the band members of the Electric Mayhem except Animal
    • Not living near any other huge Muppet fans

  1. I still don't see the hate behind THE MUPPETS' WIZARD OF OZ, yet I still don't see the love behind IT'S A VERY MERRY MUPPET CHRISTMAS MOVIE.

    As for Fraggle stuff, there's an old-fashioned general store downtown where I live that actually has really great Fraggle plushies (all of 'em - Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, Red), but they're so gosh-darn expensive!

  2. I am really tired of seeing those images when browsing for Muppet stuff on Tumblr.
