Always a Critic

Muppet Old Guys - Statler and Waldorf

A group of cartoony folks do something on twitter called #tuesdaysketch whereby someone sends out a topic and people sketch a cartoon under the theme.  

This week the topic was “muppets”.  Sometimes I wish I could be as honest and Waldorf and Statler. Check out all the entries at the Flickr Group.

Come back Friday for something I am postive will “A-Peel” to you.

    Don’t take it personally, Bearman – I bet they’re just jealous that your hair is still green. 🙂

  2. It is times like these that I wish I could draw. If I could only draw a little, I’d be happy… agh!

    The Fozzy bear one was hilarious.

    It’s on Flickr now, is it? I’ve been wondering why I barely see anything about it on Twitter these days.

    • Bearman says:

      They announce it on Twitter but the guy running it didn’t have time to post every submission each week to his site so he started a flickr group and asked people to post there.

    i LOVE the muppets!!! Statler and Waldorf were like my favourite!!! 😀

    I think my humour is too much like theirs from whence I was a little sprout … if I end up marrying a man who is like this when he is an old man I will be very happy hahaha

    • Bearman says:

      One that will complain alot about you. I would think that would be one you don’t want to end up with.

      • susi spice says:

        nooooo he wouldnt complain about me cause im awesome and im an awesome girlfriend and will be an awesome wife one day.
        he might complain about the yoghurt loaf but i can live with that

    I just always thought it was a little creepy that those two guys hung out together all the time in that booth.

  6. Bo Lumpkin says:

    Beleive me when you are that old you are just glad to be able to sit up and take in nourishment. I’m almost there.

  7. WannabeHero says:

    I’m actually glad I’m not as honest as those guys, cuz then I’d have to be honest with myself, and, well, I like lying to myself. 😎 Good stuff!

    • Bearman says:

      haha…so true. I always thought I was in decent shape until I lost 10 lbs and everyone told me how good I look now. Now I wonder why they didn’t tell me how I looked like crap before.

  8. Gruff Guano says:

    Nicely done! Those typical and highly recognizable features of Waldorf and Statler, in a few lines. The mark of a good caricaturist.

  9. DadaHyena says:

    “They weren’t half-bad.”

    “Yeah…they were ALL BAD!”


    I’ve loved the Muppets since I was a wee little baby, so this just made my morning.

  10. Don Mills says:

    Jesus, Bearman, if you’ve been “holding back” so far I’m not sure I’d want you to be more truthful.

    Nice job on the old boys.

    • Bearman says:

      I only give you my B game Don. You might not come back if I pulled out the A game. Then again you don’t seem to have problems with people coming back for more gruff from you.

    Waldorf & Salad

    • Bearman says:

      I use photoshop elements. Under $100.

      Key is understanding layers. I draw the cartoon on one layer and color it on a layer underneath.

  12. Gavin says:

    Ah, they were my favourite Muppets characters too!

  13. George says:

    Man, I would love to get in on Tuesday Sketch, but you guys gotta warn me around the preceding Friday. 🙂

    You did a great job at capturing these two curmudgeons. I’m proud of you and the rest of the cartoonists who participated.

  15. jb says:

    The two of them need there adult diapers loosened up just a little.

  16. My favorite line from those playboys is at the end of the Weezer video Keep Fishin’ from 2003 where, at the end of the song, this exchange goes down:

    You know, those guys aren’t half bad.

    You’re right, they’re ALL bad.


  17. Mel says:

    I know these two characters but I have to ask, did you have to look their names up? I never could remember their names.

  18. jynksie says:

    Keep those two away from my comic! If muppetts are mocking me, there-is-no-hope! o.O

  19. MJ says:

    Ha! Funny stuff!

  20. I meet people like this all the time
