The Top 10 Muppets (as voted by our followers)
#8 - Scooter
Scooter first appeared on the very first episode of The Muppet Show in 1976, and he’s been the resident go-fer and Kermit’s right hand man ever since. Performed by Richard Hunt (and now David Rudman), Scooter is always eager to please—especially if he’s getting something out of it. Scooter is the nephew of Muppet Theater owner J.P. Grosse, and he’s not afraid to remind you of that. All in all, Scooter can go-fer our hearts any day!
