Y'know, the Muppet Show was one of the most wonderfully weird shows on TV!

Doubly so when they had the Mummenschanz on. Here's how notepad people flirt:

(bit of video glitch at the beginning of this clip, but it clears up after a few seconds)



Kermit tries to talk to the Mummenschanz. This clip is HILARIOUS.


A clayface fight between artist and lazy copycat.

Ah, man, these guys were great. Wonder if they're still around in some way or another.
Also, interesting icon you got there. Take it that they are some of your favorite characters perhaps?

Yeah, it's my "pop culture" icon. Female characters from four of my favorite TV shows (well, except that one is a comic strip, and one's a show I actually stopped watching years ago, though I still like Lisa.)

Very excellent choices, if I do say so.

Ah, Miss Piggy.. She's had more face lifts than your average diva.

When I was a kid, I was so excited when I heard Mummenschanz was going to be on the Muppet Show.

When I heard they were going to be on the Muppet Show, I thought, "Moment-shines? What's that?" Then I found out!

Later, my mom went to New York and, remembering them from the Muppet Show, went to see a Mummenschanz performance, and brought back a presentation book that explained who they are and what they do, with lots of photos and drawings, and I loved it.

Later still, they came to Houston and I got to see them perform live!

I remember that episode of The Muppet Show vividly.
I saw it on French TV way back when.
I even remember that "Mummenschanz" translates to "game of luck" and that they're Swiss.
