I love Pepe. He's my favorite newer (not that the 90's are newer) Muppet. I love all the originals from the 70's-today, but did not fully appreciate Rizzo until he became partners in mischief with Pepe. He had smaller roles in most the movies.
Maybe it's fact that the guy who does Pepe now does Dr Teeth, The Swedish Chef, Rowlf the Dog and does Mahna Mahna (do, do, dododo). Some of Henson's best Characters, and he does great with them. It took a little while for them to perfect Kermit after he passed, and it killed me.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
