Baby Fozzie is the Muppet Babies version of Fozzie Bear. He wants to be a famous stand-up comedian when he grows up. Fozzie often seems naive, and his jokes aren't always funny, but his friends like him anyway. He is also somewhat of a coward, for he is afraid of ghosts, monsters, thunder and lightning, and swimming, among other things. He usually carries a teddy bear with him that is simply known as Teddy. A running gag in the show often involves Fozzie telling a bad joke (often involving chickens crossing the road), only to get booed at and have one or more tomatoes thrown in his face.
