This is an easy one. By and far the greatest Muppet ever is Beaker. He was the most true to life puppet out there. He didn’t have Fozzie’s dashing good looks, Kermit’s velvet charm or Scooter’s Mensa-like brain. No sir, Beaker got up every morning, put on the same close and went to the same job for the same ne’er-do-well boss (who clearly violated Federal safety codes on a regular basis) for a pay scale that I can only imagine is the puppet equivalent of “entry level.” Beaker is every man; he is one of us.
