Top 5 Favorite Muppets

Beaker#4. Beaker

Another wonderful supporting character, the ever-faithful yet permanently terrified lab assistant with a head of shocking red hair places on my list not only because of his appearances in Dr. Bunsen’s laboratory, but also due to his impact in the classic Charles Dickens adaptation The Muppet Christmas Carol. Highlighting just how effectively Muppets can be cast in new roles, it was Beaker who provided the final touches to Scrooge’s transformation with his big innocent eyes perfectly capturing the value of bestowing gifts upon one another. All this while never uttering a word other than a high-pitched squeal. Irresistibly lovable.
