Muppet Morals by RobbVision Muppet Morals by RobbVision
I have always been a huge Jim Henson Fan and grew up with the Muppets. I FEAR puppets....but I LOVE the Muppets...weird.

Anyways, Sam the Eagle was always hilarious. He is surrounded by all the "questionable" Muppets like Crazy Harry and Lew Zealand.

I kind of wanted to do more with Sam on this one, like have him look a little more exaggerated and tweaked.

Funny you mention puppet fear XD I feel the same way. I do love the Muppets, but even some of them are just downright creepy 0__0

This definitely deserved a daily deviation.
I love the use of colors, atmosphere, and a cast of obscure and overlooked characters, especially Sam the Eagle, Rizzo, Sweetums, and Crazy Harry.

This is *fantastic*!! So perfectly captures the Muppet environment.

And oh my god...I can't stand puppets, ventriloquist dummies in particular...but Muppets? LOVE them. The magic of Jim Henson, I suppose.

I love Sam because he claims to be cultured and whatnot, but when it comes to naming it, he falls a little short (He thinks Beethoven was a playwright.)

This is a very good characterization of the muppets, and of Sam, in particular.

To quote Sam from the Muppet Show: "Dear Sir, this show is sick and weird. There are rats here. There is a THING whistling here. I would suggest to have someone come and fumigate."
