#5. Swedish Chef
Everyone has their favourite bit-player when it comes to the Muppets, and I apologise to those who feel their picks have been easily dismissed. But of all the nonsensical supporting characters who helped light up the screen during trademark sketches on the original show, a standout scene-stealer for me has to be the joyously silly Swedish Chef. Although never the kind to feature heavily in the films, the unfathomable chef was always a particular highlight on the original show with his quality cooking tips and even had his own theme song. I’ll be looking forward to his appearance in Most Wanted, however small it may be.
