BLOWN-UP BEAKER – The Muppets Mini-Muppets Collectible MSIP & RARE!
Beaker is a Muppet character from The Muppet Show. He is the shy, long-suffering assistant of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, and is likewise named after a piece of laboratory equipment.
During the first season of The Muppet Show, Dr. Honeydew presented the Muppet Labs segments by himself; Beaker was added as his lab assistant from the second season on. Beaker has bulging eyes, a shock of orange hair, and a drawbridge mouth. He was originally puppeteered and voiced by Richard Hunt until Hunt’s death in 1992, when the role was taken over primarily by Steve Whitmire. After Whitmire was fired in 2016, David Rudman took over the character.
Beaker is a magnet for disaster; he routinely experiences mishaps such as being blown up, electrocuted, eaten by large monsters, or afflicted with awkward side effects caused by Dr. Bunsen Honeydew’s experiments. Beaker communicates in a nervous, high-pitched squeak that sounds like “Mee-mee-mee mee”. In books and merchandise, the sound is spelled “Meep”. In The Muppet Movie he appeared to say something other than “mee” or “meep” (he “meeps” Honeydew’s previous line “sadly temporary”). Although he can say normal words at times, such as ” Bye-bye.” His tone or expression helps to communicate his meaning. “Meep” and “mee” are pronounced to rhyme with “beep” and “bee”, respectively. ~ Source: Wikipedia
