Muppet Mug Controversy: Grover or Rowlf?

Filed under: Feature,Fun Stuff — Joe Hennes @ 10:11 am

The internet, and therefore the world, was shaken in 2015 when we learned of The Dress.  Is it blue and black?  Is it gold and white?  Nobody knows for sure, and the dress isn’t telling.  This has proven to be the most worrisome news story from the past two years (not counting literally everything else).

It has come to our attention that there is another “dress” situation looming.  And the dress is a mug.

Tell me – Who do you see in the mug above?  Is it Grover or Rowlf?

Take your time.  Let your eyes adjust.  Look away and then back again.  Don’t trust your own brain.  Forget everything you know about Muppets and mugs, and then recall it all at once.

The more savvy Muppet fans among us recognize this as a Sigma Rowlf mug, just repainted in Grover tones.  So this begs the question: Is the character featured on the mug the one it was built to be, or is it the one the final artist intended?

Perhaps this is a blue Rowlf, kidnapped by Follow That Bird‘s Sleaze Brothers and forced to sing in their amusement park.

Or maybe Grover finally decided to do something about his lack of ears, but overdid it a smidge by attaching dog ears to his cranium.

So tell us: Who do you see?  Grover?  Rowlf?  Or is this everyone’s new favorite character Growlf???
