animal, the drummer

Media_httpuploadwikim_bufgg

I have an obsession with The Muppets lately. Jim Henson was a genius. The Muppets and Sesame Street were the best thing on TV when I was a kid. Hands down.

My kids watched The Muppet Movie recently and have taken to comparing me to Animal, since we both play drums (although he can grow much better facial hair than I). They asked if I was a better drummer than Animal, so we went online looking for drum off's with Animal, as I recalled watching them on TV when I was a kid. So, here you go Animal up against Buddy Rich:

And Harry Belafonte:

I didn't remember the Belafonte drum off, which doesn't have as dramatic an ending. But I did remember the Rich drum off. Anyone remember others?
