    My best friend and I have been arguing this on and offsince 6th grade.

    Does Gonzo have fur or feathers?

    I say fur, because on The Muppet Show and in the movies, he looks furry, and he hase strands of hair on top of his head, and it makes more sense to have fur and hair than feathers and hair. Also, there are other Muppet's created by Jim Henson that definitely and noticeably have feathers, such as Big Bird and the blue bird hawk type guy-whatever his name was-on The Muppet Show.

    She says feathers, because on the Muppet Babies, it looks like feathers, and in one episode he thinks maybe is is actually a chicken, and it would explain his strong affinity to chickenson the Muppet Show and in the movies.

    Not that we're in a serious argument about this, but I thought others here might enjoy joining our debate.

    I think he mostly has fur with maybe a couple feathers on top. At least, that's how I made him look when I made a junk model of him for an art class once!

    Maybe has both, since after all he is a weird alien whatever-thing.
