Frogger: Random Facts

I can't believe I am actually participating in this challenge. I hope I can make it all the way through. I'm going to need lots of Red Bull. My theme for this challenge is fictional characters including but not limited to cartoons, tv shows, video games, movies, books, etc. Now let's have some fun.

I, PTM, have commandeered the show Inside the Actor's Studio hosted by James Lipton for the A to Z challenge. James is safely being held prisoner until May. He will get plenty of food and water, no need to call the cops. For the month of April, I am renaming his show to Inside the Fictional Character's Studio.

If you are old enough, you probably have played the Frogger arcade game. Hopping across roads and logs and eating flies is all that little frog knows how to do. Other than that I bet you didn't know much about him. I am going to change that. Here are some random not-so-known facts about Frogger.

He had a short stint as the drummer for Styx in the spring of 1976.

He tried out to be the mascot for Corn Flakes.

He was married to Miss Piggy for about a week before it was annulled.

His mother refers to him as Da' Frawg and he hates it.

He prefers turkey bacon to real bacon.

There was a script written for a Frogger movie in the 90's but it was never made.

He owns the 3rd largest collection of Pokemon cards.

Was born with a full functional third kidney.

Has a reoccurring nightmare about being hit by a semi-truck.

Has a phobia of chickens.

Had a twin sister that died at birth.

I used to like Frogger a lot and given the movies they make these days I think there's a chance for his movie yet.

your brain is amazingly creative.

Adam said...

He also had a falling out with George Costanza

I too still have my pokemon cards from when I was a kid. Married Miss Piggy? Ha! She'd always go back to Kermit. Cool fact list though.

So don't ever ask him why the chicken crossed the road?

Chuck said...

Hey, I might know him!! I like turkey bacon, too!!!!

Morgan Katz said...

I have heard of this game... I love it!

Andrea said...

Stopping by from a-z and so very glad I did as I am cracking up over everything I have read! My friend was so much cooler than me...she had an atari 5200 while I only had the 2600, AND she had frogger!

Kathy said...

LOL, you have a delightful imagination! Love it!


Birgit said...

I heard he tried to play Pong but it was too complicated for him...oh and sorry, had a meal last night-he was delicious, tasted just like chicken

As Adam alluded to, Frogger starred in a Seinfeld episode. While I very much liked the arcade game, I loved that episode.

I bet Miss Piggy couldn't handle his dangerous lifestyle.

You left out his stint as a lumberjack.
