 Puppet Bears

Fozzie Bear - Muppet bear featured on the puppet comedy variety show THE MUPPETS SHOW/SYN/1976-81.

Fozzie Bear

Fozzie Bear (voice of Frank Oz) had a pink nose and wore a little brown hat. He belonged to a zany troupe of theatrical actors managed by a little green frog called Kermit. Fozzie wanted to be a comedian but his material was so stale (the type that killed Vaudeville) that the audience often booed him off the stage, especially resident critics Statler & Waldorf (two old men who sat in the balcony of the theater).

Fozzie's favorite catchphrase was "Waka, Waka, Waka!" The writer of his comedy material was the legendary "Gags" Beasly, the heir apparent to Henny Youngman.

Fozzie was featured in The Muppet Movie (1979) and the sequels The Great Muppet Caper (1981) and The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984). A much younger version of Fozzie appeared on the animated Saturday morning cartoon MUPPET BABIES/CBS/1984-92.
