Fozzie Bear

Fozzie Bear, one of my favorite Muppet characters, can be found in various films such as 'The Muppets Take Manhattan.' 'The Muppet Movie,' 'Muppet Treasure Island,' 'Muppets from Space,' 'The Great Muppet Caper,' 'The Muppet's Wizard of Oz,' 'The Muppet Christmas Carol,' 'It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie,' and the latest Muppets movie, 'The Muppets.' In TV shows he can be found in 'The Muppet Show,' 'Muppets Tonight,' 'The Jim Henson Hour,' and one of my favorite cartoons growing up, 'The Muppet Babies.' In video games he can be found in games such as Muppets Party Cruise, Disney Universe, Muppet RaceMania, Muppet Monster Adventure, Muppet Adventure: Chaos at the Carnival, and Muppet Pinball Mayhem to name a few. In merchandise he can be found in pins, toys, books and clothing.

He lives at Muppet Studios with the rest of the Muppets. He and the rest of his friends have traveled the world. He loves to tell jokes even if they are terrible most of the time. Some of Fozzie's friends are Kermit the Frog, Gonzo, Rowlf, Miss Piggy, Scooter, Pepe, Walter, and Gary. There have been various groups of people trying to destroy the Muppets and Muppet Studios, with Tex Richman becoming the closest to succeeding.

Fozzie is an overweight bear who wears a brown hat and a necktie that has polka dots on it. He also has a pink nose and scruffy fur. His family consists of three people: his father (Mr. Bear), his mother (Emily Bear), and his brother (Freddie Bear). His closest friend in the world is Kermit the Frog, and Kermit looks after Fozzie. His famous line is 'Wokka Wokka Wokka!' and he is terrified of Statler and Waldorf because they heckle him so much.

He was designed by Michael K. Frith, and he has had two puppeteers over the years with one being the amazingly talented Frank Oz and the other being Eric Jacobson. /p>

Fozzie can be found in Muppet Vision 3-D in Disney's Hollywood Studios and in Disney California Adventure. He can also be found on the Disney Cruise Line in the extremely popular and fun Midship Detective Agency. I really hope Disney decides to do more with the Muppets in the theme parks. I would absolutely love a Muppet themed area at the Disney parks. There would be so many great possibilities for attractions and shows. I brought this up in the forums but it would be really cool to see an attraction where guests get to try their hands in stand up comedy as they are judged by Statler and Waldorf. Guest could get heckled by them and it would be a really great interactive experience, so Disney if you are reading this please make this happen. Thank You!
