Polaroid: Misc



Up to date as of February 02, 2010

From Muppet Wiki

Polaroid was a company that pioneered the instant camera and was one of the leading makers of cameras and film. Due to changes in technology, the company filed for bankruptcy in 2001, and has ceased making its namesake models.

In 1981, the Muppets appeared in a number of commercials for Polaroid cameras, making good use of their slogan "Polaroid means fun". The spots debuted in England.

The Muppets also appeared in magazine print ads for Polaroid.

Commercial Spots

  • Fozzie's Christmas Present - Kermit gives Fozzie a Polaroid camera for Christmas. Even though it's a little over his head, the bear goes on to take a photo of Kermit, Piggy, Gonzo, Camilla, Scooter, Statler and Waldorf. In the jingle-outro, Floyd and Rizzo also appear.
  • Stage Presentation - Mariette Hartley presents the Amigo to the audience of the Muppet Theatre. Pops can be seen briefly as Miss Piggy pulls Kermit backstage.
  • Gonzo's Song - Gonzo sings a sad song sitting on the porch of a house in which the Muppets are sharing pictures of themselves. He's sad that no one wants to take a picture of him until everyone comes out to convince him otherwise.
