    Hi all,
    I really enjoyed author James V. Carroll's article "The Evolution of Palisades Series 3" that was posted August 10, 2002.
    He covered all bases and made sense to me.

    Considering that I always try to find the true mirror for figurines to muppets , I'm glad his input went somewhere.
    I also appreciated him taking the time to tell us how the artists have taken to heart all the input from fans / collectors and are creating life with their art. Much appreciated!!
    Thanks James.

    I LOVE THE FIGURES

    These must be the coolest figures I have ever seen. They are built amazingly!!! I just feel bad for the chinese workers that get paid 2 cents an hour to make them. :( But the **** with 'em. Figures are awesome!!!!!!:D
  6. Sunshineboz New Member

    OK

    Well, glad you like the figures... I guess.

    Welcome to the forum SFPepe!!:p

    Re: I LOVE THE FIGURES

    Have you actually done any research into the labor conditions in Asian factories, or are you just going with what you've heard and tossing accusations at Palisades?
  8. SFPepe New Member

    Cool Figures

    I wasn't throwing accusations, it was generalized joke!

    point is I LIKE THE FIGURES.

    Wow, ho wmany northern california members are on here? I thought me, Jamie, and Kprell were the only ones! hehe

    Jamie and his friend informed me of the site. From there, it's on!!!
    I love love love the muppets!!

    Hey Jamie or anyone out there,
    Do any of you know what the names of the two guys in Sesame Street are? The guys I'm talking about are the two alien guys with honking noses, horns for ears and always say, "Nope nope nope nope; yep yep yep yep!"

    I've been trying to find out for a while now!!
  12. frogboy4 Inactive Member

    Love the sig! I already emailed you with the answer but for everyone else out there - they are simpley called "The Martians" performed by Jerry Nelson snd Martin Robinson.
  13. beaker Well-Known Member

    HEy! VERY nice avatar! The Sesame Martians are my faves from Sesame next to Telly and the Honkers. Sadly we still havent seen any merchandise for these guys. While Jamie might be technically right...I can fill in more. Fans refer to them as the 'Yip Yips' for obvious reasons, thought they are commonly referred to as the Sesame Martians. Like the Koozebanians or Frackles on TMS, they dont so much have specific names, just general refereces(like Blue Martian, Pink Martian, and Orange Martian) Anyways, these guys rock, and...

    Jamie: Do you have Elmopalooza dvd? If so I was wondering if you could make a screengrab of when the martians were on Conan O Brien?(its for an article Im doing)
  14. frogboy4 Inactive Member

    I have nothing elmo. Are you surprised? LOL!
  15. beaker Well-Known Member

    >>>I have nothing elmo. Are you surprised? LOL!<<<

    no, not surprised...but if youve seen Elmopalooza, youd know its one of the coolest Muppet dvds out there! ^_^ The Count singing with Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Martians on Conan O'Brien, Kermit interviewing outside Radio City Music Hall, just great stuff.

    We have different tastes. What I saw didn't jazz me.

    Re: Cool Figures

    I took it as a joke. It's cool.

    Fact is, factory conditions are not as bad as one might think anyway. In fact, living conditions in China are so bad that people are lining up for factory work and have to be turned away. Driving through the area where some of the factories are is truly saddening. There are huts made of garbage that people live in. In the factory they get three hots and a cot, live in a dorm, get clothes at little to no cost and free medical attention when needed. Yeah the work blows but factory workers live better than most people in that section of the country.

    Just an FYI from your friendly neighborhood China-bound guy...

    Hey Beaker,
    Thanks for the compliment on the Avatar. I became so excited to see that everyone had one that I had to go out and make one.

    Jamie can attest to the fact that I was hounding him to remember who the "Yip, Yip" guys were. Once he told me that they are known as "The Martians" I did a search and found a "YIP-YIP" fan club. That's where I got the photo.
    I just love these guys and thanks to Jamie for the info. :p .

    Have any of you guys seen the "Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas"? I have the VHS but of course I'd prefer to upgrade to DVD.

    it looks great, I miss the yip yips. Hey, do ya ever go to those puppet guild meetings at the mason building with Jamie? I missed the last big one, despite being just 20 miles deep in sf from it. *sigh*

    Great santa claus switch, emmet otter, musicians of brement...all specials I have yet to see which I doubt will be on dvd anytime soon. I wish people knew how to convert vhs to vcd-r tho!
  20. Sunshineboz New Member

    I have never been to a puppet guild meeting. I know Jamie through a friend. What do they do at the meetings? What's the address and when does that happen?
