Muppet Monday: Bear and Dog Duet

If Fozzie can’t really tell a joke, what are his hidden talents?

In this highly amusing clip from Season 2 of The Muppet Show, Fozzie joins Rowlf at tickling the ivories. It’s so much fun to see this rare twosome hanging out. Fozzie was normally hanging around Kermit, and Jim Henson played both Kermit and Rowlf so maybe this was why they never really shared the screen together? It’s possible.

One part that totally sticks out to me is Fozzie calling Rowlf “sir”. I like how he has respect for the music aficionado, and they just have a total blast together. You don’t see too many of the Muppets sharing a piano best with Rowlf so you know this duet is super special.

Not only that but the comedy here is so perfectly timed and so full of each of these Muppets’ personalities. It is The Muppet Show as its best, for sure, and one of those scenes that has me literally laughing out loud when I see it. (It’s easy to imagine how much fun Henson and Frank Oz must have had when they filmed it too.)

And what’s better than laughing on a Monday? Nothing. Nothing at all.

  1. I like how Fozzie’s hat falls off when things get crazy. I wonder if that was supposed to happen. I feel like it wasn’t, which makes it even funnier 🙂

  2. Any clips with Frank Paz and Jim Henson are always my favorites, especially Rowlf! Love this piece so much just because it gets sillier and sillier “Can you play hatless?” “I dunno who wrote it?!” Lol
