Kismet the Toad: On paper or in real life?

Sorry for the title, I just go ToPLW #2 and am loving it. Anyway, we all thought Kismet the Toad was just one time thing. However, not only will he still have an important role in the second series of The Muppet Show comics, he is making an appearance in REAL LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, not really, but here’s the story: For the past 19 years, Steve Whitmire has become the performer for Kermit. However, in recent appearances, starting with a performance of “I gave you my heart” on America’s Got Talent, Kermit has been performed by a back-up (Identified by www.toughpigs.com as Artie Esposito). Many Muppet fans have been wondering what happened to Steve. No official Disney answer has been given yet, but theories range from a secret plan to advertise ToPLW to *gulp* something having happened to Steve.

Project: Go-fer

Today me and my mom have started work on a puppet of one of the lesser known Muppets, Scooter. Scooter works as a “Go-fer” backstage at The Muppet Show. His job is to tell everyone what to do when, and he is one of the reasons the show does not dissolve into total chaos. This is what Scooter looks like on The Muppet Show:

And this is what our replica looks like:

Scooter 003

Scooter is my second Muppet replica after Kermit. Here is his foam skeleton:

Scooter 001

He is our third foam puppet.

Here are the original plans next to the finished head.

Scooter 007

We will finish his body soon.
