Hello New York Doll collectors! We want to continue talking about Madame Alexander’s plushy friends from Disney’s Muppets. The two plush friends that we’re going to take a look at, is Fozzie Bear and Animal. These Muppets bring back fond memories of the television show and the fabulous movies, such as the Great Muppet Caper. In fact, these dolls definitely have a great resemblance, of our special friends on the screen. Same coloring, outfit, texture, looks, expressions and impressions. Let’s take a closer look.
Fozzie Bear, is a cuddly, 9 inch doll, with more beside. He is also ready and willing to offer a smile and to encourage the loving owner to have one as well. This wonderful Fozzie, has a huggable, plush so called fur. His fur is of an amber brown tone, with hills and curls of texture. A texture, that one feels they could run their fingers through with no delay. But it’s remarkable, as the texture can easily be seen on the television screen, and that look is still captured on this dear bear in stores. We are paying close attention to the fur because, of course that is his full attire. In addition, he is a wearing a big bow tie, with spots of flowers all around the fabric. The rosy colors of the flowers, match the gorgeous rosy, and fluff nose and his sleepy, moon shaped, eyelids. The rosy colors also bring out the apple red smile and the heart shape of his tongue. And finally he is wearing a wonderful and cheery porkpie hat, in a color of a soft chocolate. Chocolate is the best way to describe Fozzie’s hat, in being part of his ensemble. It just suit’s his sweet demeanor.
Finally we have our wonderful and wild friend, Animal. We have seen our exuberant and energetic friend, to say the least, playing the drums on the Muppet Show and movie. The fire red fur of his mane, along with three spots of yellow flamed colors, accenting the red and black, bushy eyebrows, bring out his fantastic, out of this world, look in his eyes. His wide mouth, gives prudence to his name, as he roars with greatness. Showing his white even fangs, and that beautiful heart shape tongue. Animal is wearing a suede like vest, that can barely be restrained from the ties that can not seem to bind him. His pants have a short hair, velvety, furry texture to them. They’re tied with a white string, that is strung between the subtle looking loops in his trousers. The color of his magnificent pants, are an earthy brown, blending nicely with his fire orange skin tone. His hands and feet are stitched well enough, to show plump, cushiony fingers and toes. On his wrist, he wears a black polka dotted bandana, and a light blue, slightly decorated wrist band. Speaking of band. It is truly a wonderful symbol to have placed on his wrist. A band. For we all have seen Animal, play his earnest, as a head knocking drummer in a jazz, rock and all types of music, band. He played with some of the best, like Muppet guest stars, such as Harry Belafante and Buddy Rich!
It is genius for Madame Alexander to bring back these memorable and lovable characters from the Muppets, and placing them into the doll collecting fold. These dolls are for the price of $24.95. And if there are some thoughts into figuring out, what to get for Mom, for Mother’s Day, this maybe one of them. But if not, definitely a gift to give to oneself.
