    Description

    "Gonzo" muppet from Muppets in Space. (Jim Henson Pictures, 1999) "The Great Gonzo" stars in this, the 6th major film to feature those zany "Muppets". In this Sci-Fi story, "Gonzo" confides in "Kermit the Frog" that he's tired of being referred to as a "whatever" after an alien race begins sending him messages through bowls of cereal. This is a 30 in. tall (from toe to tallest feather) screen-used "Gonzo" Muppet. Constructed of foam head and beak, soft fabric hollow torso, arms, and legs covered from head to toe with knobby blue fleece fabric. Arms and legs contain bendable wire armature. The familiar head is constructed of carved soft reticulated polyfoam including face and snout. With ping-pong ball eyes, black felt irises and polyfoam eyelids painted yellow. Back of the head is covered in matching knobby fleece fabric and split down the back to allow access to the cavity of the figure, for ease of manipulation, slipping over animatronic machinery, wiring for electronics and other tech. (electronics no longer present, only a few wires remain). Exhibiting production wear and signs of theatrical distressing. Comes standing on a 10 in. round wooden base with dowel. Also includes extra parts and accessories including 2-jointed legs, 2- arms with hands over wire armatures and 1-swatch of extra Gonzo fleece. Retaining production fabric label pinned to the back handwritten, " RCX Cover, Flailer Gonzo, Lead Singer #14". In production used very good condition. This represents one of only four Muppets we have ever handled in decades of auctions.
