    Whew! Thanks for the clarification. I was afraid we'd be having to notify his next of Kimp! (Insert sarcastic heckling from Statler and Waldorf here).

    Dave Coulier was recently in the third season of The Surreal Life on VH1

    Yeah, he was the best thing on that show. After the sensory overdrive provided by Bridget and Flav, Dave was a much needed dose of mellow goodness, y'know?

    I have never noticed the similarities

    Similarities to what?

    Muppet Babies Voice Connections are

    Frank Welker (Kermit/Beaker/Skeeter) - Fred from Scooby Doo/Nibbler from Futurama
    Dave Coulier (Animal) - Joey from Full House
    Russi Taylor (Gonzo) - Martin from Simpsons/Minnie Mouse

    Wow, I didn't even know that some many noticable actors did the voices on this show. Howie Mandel was on the show? Does anybody remember his show Bobby's world? Great show. ..well at least I thought so when I was a child. I watched it every morning before school.

    I remember it, but I think it was kinda dumb, like Louie Anderson's cartoon. Anyone remember that?

    interesting that in the Muppets Take Manahattan (during the Muppet Babies dream) all the Muppeteers performed their own baby versions of their characters except I believe Steve Whitmire did Kermit's voice. I wonder why Jim Henson didn't do it.
  11. Ernie101 Active Member

    Yeah Gonzo, I remember that show. Both shows aired on Fox.
  12. lowercasegods Member

    Actually, Jim did do baby Kermit's voice in the movie. Just goes to show how talented he was that he could pull off a voice that even the fans wouldn't recognize as his.

    Then maybe it was Richard Hunt that didn't perform Baby Scooter. i know there was one of the Baby counterparts that was voiced by Steve Whitmire.
  14. lowercasegods Member

    Actually, I'm about positive all the original puppeteers performed and voiced their baby counterparts.
  15. MWoO Active Member

    Someone said that Steve performed Baby Kermit in an old post, but it is not true. It is most certainly Jim Henson. They all peroformed their own baby characters.
  16. BEAR Active Member

    I actually realized that baby Kermit did sound just like Jim Henson. Maybe it is just because Scooter's voice sounds so completely different. I mean, all the others still sound like their characters but Scooter's voice is so not what the Adult Scooter sounds like.

    I am seriously amazed at how well the muppeteers pull-off these voices, whitch is one of the first things I liked about the muppets.

    BEAR, good point about baby Scooter. That's cool that you noticed it sounded like Jim Henson.

    BTW, do you think the baby looney toons is a rip-off of this show?
  18. BEAR Active Member

    No, no. I wasn't saying Baby Scooter sounded like Jim Henson. I said Baby Kermit sounded like Jim Henson correcting myself from before when I didn;t think it was Jim's voice. I am thinking it was Scooter that was not done by Richard Hunt.
  19. Gonzo14 Active Member

    I think it was Richard as Baby Scooter in TMTM, he kinda sounded like Janice

    I always felt like Richard's Baby Scooter voice was similar to the "Frank Welker" voice, which is the cute, gurgly voice he created for tons of cartoon characters (such as Glomer from the Punky Brewster cartoon), and which was subsequently adopted by several voice artists like Dave Coulier, Howie Mandel and Chris Sanders, the director of Lilo and Stitch and the title character's performer. It's a pretty common voice, easy to do (just about any kid on a playground can pull it off) and fits a baby character very well, so i can see why Richard would use it for Baby Scooter. It's interesting to note that Frank used the voice on Muppet Babies when he took over as Skeeter after Howie Mandel left the show. I doubt there's a connection between his useage of it on the cartoon and Richard's performance in the movie, which came out a year earlier, but it's still interesting.
