A friend and I had a pretty interesting discussion yesterday and it got me thinking. Baskerville was initially one of the designs considered for Rowlf, when Rowlf was in the concept stage. Baskerville, though he's skinnier and has a longer snout and glasses, has a red mouth and his ears are fluffier. He's dark brown as well, though his fur is the same colour all over his body. Looking more closely at Baby Rowlf, he doesn't really look so much like a baby version of Rowlf, as much as he does a hybrid of both Rowlf and Baskerville. In addition, Muppet Babies occasionally managed to sneak in little bits of Muppet trivia...such as alluding to the adult Rowlf's status as the first Muppet to achieve stardom. Now, Baskerville's design played a part in the Rowlf puppet's 'infancy'. That said, could Baby Rowlf's design be a subtle nod to Baskerville? Discuss!
