    WOE, would you be able to give a list of which Sesame Street Muppets appeared in the Muppet Movie finale?

    I don't think he's very hard to see. I first noticed that Sesame Street characters were in that scene when I was in the third grade, and I saw Guy Smiley there when I first noticed Sesame Street characters in the finale (Ernie and Bert were the first oens that I ever noticed in that scene... hey, what'ya know... your performance was the first seasame street performance in the finale I noticed.... anyway, when I first noticed that there were Sesame Street characters in that scene, I noticed Ernie, Bert, Guy Smiley, Grover, The Two-Headed Monster, and Big Bird. I noticed other characters, such as Cookie Monster, later on.

    Oh gosh...I just now found this thread, but it was definitely worth the read-through.

    Earl, "WOE", thank you very much for sharing all of your memories, tidbits, and information here with us. It's all a terrific treasure to read.

    As someone whose favorite "Muppet Show" (and Muppet movies) character is Janice, I loved seeing your little passing mention of her when you said in the "Muppet Movie" finale that Richard Hunt said Statler and Janice were his two hardest puppets to get on. That's very interesting.

    Thanks again for being so generous to come here and share these wonderful memories with us. As you've seen over seven pages (and elsewhere on the forum), we all truly appreciate it.

    Lol, howdy Tom!

    I've been around a bit...I've commented a few Fraggle and Classic Muppets threads, and over the last several months I've put up Mokey screencaps on Muppet Central "Mokey Mondays" from the season 1 set. Been workin' 2 jobs since January and workin' on getting my writing career off the ground...keepin' busy! lol Good to see you too man! :)

    Ain't it pretty when we can all get together like this? Our 3 posts in a row like this kinda makes it look like the early Delphi MC Forum days are back, eh?

    David Goelz was not puppeteering Beauregaurd. He was doing both Gonzo and Camilla. Jerry I believe was puppeteering both Robin and Crazy Harry.
    You can tell Dave was puppeteering Gonzo and Camilla by the way they both move there heads, exactly the same time.

    That is sooooo cool

    Do you still keep in touch with any of the other performers from the end?
  16. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    *gasp* He abandoned a huge player like Beauregard for that bit part tiny man Gonzo? Wait...that was back to front...ignore me.

    In that scene, Gonzo, Beauregard, and Zoot were all standing next to each other. Gonzo and Camilla could have been performed by the same person, but how do we know that Dave Goelz didn't perform Beauregard and Zoot?

    He only has two arms so he wasnt doing all of them.
  19. minor muppetz

    minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    I wasn't suggesting that Goelz was performing all three of them. I am saying that maybe Goelz performed Zoot and Beauregard, and someone else performed Gonzo and Camilla.

    I was just playing aroud. Didnt mean to offend any one.
