Animal From The Muppets On Drums
Animal is the primitive man and crazed drummer of Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem, the fictional band from The Muppet Show. He is one of the Muppets originally created by Michael K. Frith.
Cute and quirky with songs to match, Jim Henson’s Muppets have been responsible for over three decades of children’s entertainment that isn’t just for kids. Alongside Sesame Street, which was aimed at younger children and also created many iconic kids’ TV characters, the Muppets who appeared on The Muppet Show and in the Muppets’ films had a more sophisticated, wittier look and sense of humor. Artist/puppeteer Henson created a rough version of the most famous Muppet, Kermit the Frog, in 1955 for Sam and Friends, a Washington, D.C.-area children’s show for which he was a puppet designer; by the time The Muppet Show began in 1976, the Muppets were a full cast of characters — including Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Rowlf the Dog, and the Muppet band, Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem — and their mix of sophisticated puppetry and music was already in place. Along with Henson, the Muppets’ main original puppeteers and voices included Frank Oz, Richard Hunt, and Dave Goelz.
