My friends had this conversation at work. The Big Four of the Muppets are Kermit, Piggy, Gonzo and Fozzie. But we couldn't agree who's the fifth most important character. We figured it had to be Animal, Rowlf or Scooter.

For me it will always be Rowlf because without him none of the others would have ever come to be. He was the first to get any traction and become marketable in any way and supposedly Henson had a soft spot for him.

I gotta go with Rowlf, because he was Henson's favorite and he was that original muppet that started it all.
Had Scooter not disappeared for the better part of 20 years after his performer (Richard Hunt) died, he'd probably be #5. Now, he probably ranked below Animal, Statker/Waldorf and maybe even Rizzo and Pepe (both of whom became big deals in his absence, though I think their day has passed moreorless).
