Popcorn Recipes With The Swedish Chef

In Popcorn, Recipes with the Swedish Chef from The Muppets teaches how to make microwave popcorn in classic Muppets style. First he requires shrimp, which do not agree with his assessment, then throws a bunch of bags of microwave popcorn into the microwave for an indeterminable amount of time, though by the amount of buttons he hit, quite a long time. Which naturally has the expected result of the microwave door exploding and popcorn flying everywhere, covering the Swedish Chef and his entire kitchen. The video is available on YouTube.

The video itself is hilarious, as is often the case with the Swedish Chef. It is done in classic Muppets style, guaranteed to make you laugh. Especially when he chases down one of the escaped shrimps’. The song that the Swedish Chef dances to is actually named Popcorn by a band called Hot Butter. Makes one hungry just to think about it. Of course the Swedish Chef doesn’t call it popcorn, instead it is poppycorn’. It just wouldn’t be right if the Swedish Chef called it anything else. The escaped shrimp ends up laughing at the Swedish Chef as popcorn bathes and covers the kitchen and him. At this point the Swedish Chef waves the white flag in surrender as he is nothing but a tower of popcorn.

The Swedish Chef cooking shows are always a fun way to spend a few minutes, and Popcorn does not disappoint. Statler and Waldorf, the critics from The Muppet Show, do not like the show, giving it a rather bad review if the word knucklehead’ is any indication. And judging by the speed of the typing involved in writing that review, they really didn’t like it. Though the Swedish Chef is rather a knucklehead, that’s the beauty of him. The Swedish Chef is often the banner child of what not to do, rather than what to do.

The Swedish Chef was originally performed by Frank Oz and Jim Henson simultaneously. Oz did the hand motions and Hanson did the voice. Now it is performed by Bill Barretta. The Swedish Chef is also one of the few Muppets that used puppeteer hands. This is necessary so that the Swedish Chef can pick up food, utensils and other items. The gibberish he spouts is supposed to sound like Swedish, but is actually mostly gibberish and sounds more like Norwegian than Swedish.
