Underappreciated character flaw: Muppets’ Hubris
A special form hubris, when the thing you are most passionate about is the thing you’re worst at doing. This drives the character to hilarious extremes as they try swim uphill against their own limitations.
Fozzie wants to be a great comedian. Mrs. Piggy sees herself as a glamorous leading lady. Kermit wants to put on a smooth and successful show. Sam wants everyone to be “respectable” and “normal”. Gonzo wants appreciation for his art. Even Rolf, who his a great pianist, is stuck in a third rate vaudeville act. Etc.
