    OK, The Swedish Chef is a good characture; as a child watching him, I was inspired to learn a foreign language. Though I ended-up studying French - Not Swedish .

    Not that anything uttered by the Swedish Chef was actually Swedish!

    None that I am aware of, just a bunch of syllables that sort-of sounded Swedish...maybe we can call it "Pig Swedish" (think Pig Latin). We also get the same deal in The Golden Girls when Rose (Betty White) would utter phrases that sounded Norwegian.

    Still, even with the Pig Swedish, my favorite episode was with Jonathan Winters when the entire cast was cursed to being Swedish.

    Here's a sample of the song I wrote, "Muppet Mambo No. 5"!:

    A little bit of Piggy in my life

    A little bit of Kermit by her side

    A little bit of Gonzo's all I need

    A little bit of Robin's what I see

    A little bit of Rizzo in the sun

    Statler and Waldorf can't go wrong

    A little bit of Fozzie everyone

    A little bit of him makes life so fun!

    Well, whaddya think?

    By the way, I do kinda enjoy those gags that Fozzie played on Kermit in the past. I also enjoy when Kermit sometimes got his revenge on Fozzie, which is just playful poetic justice.

    Tough choice. If you keep it to the original crew, not the other Henson franchises, I'm gonna go with Gonzo. I'm most like Fozzie, and I love Kermit, but Gonzo's my guy.

    I can't pick just one. I like them all. If I really had to I would say Fozzie.

    Easily the Swedish Chef. Not only best Muppet, but among best characters of all time television.

    Kermit - When one of the guest stars said " I thought you were the one who wasn't crazy", he said "Me? I hired the others!"

    Honourable mentions to Rizzo, Swedish Chef, Janice and Rowlf
