For me, The Muppet Show was the perfect in-between show for those in-between years. It wasn’t quite a cartoon, and it wasn’t quite as boring as those serious shows the grownups watched. It came on in the evening, so you felt just a little bit grownup watching it without going into Murder, She Wrote territory. A LEGO builder who goes by the name j-p-30 his us right in the between childhood and adulthood feels with these three clever busts of some of our favorite Muppet friends. We have poor Beaker, whose scientific experiments tend to end in fiery calamity. Gonzo was the weird bendy-nosed Muppet Show pianist, and the less said about Animal’s outrageous antics, the better. All together, you’ve got the makings of a trio that could make us giggle even if Trapper John M.D. was totally your jam. Well done, Mr. j-p-30!
Of all the beloved Muppet Show characters, Statler and Waldorf are certainly near the top of my list. I would venture to guess that these cantankerous hecklers are a huge favorite for many people. That must definitely be the case for one superb builder, Alex de Jong, who recreated this iconic duo in spectacular LEGO fashion. 5 months of work over 2.5 years went into this build!
