Ever wonder about Nanny

    If Palisades ever made the Muppet Babies toy line; wouldn't it be rully funny if they made a Nanny action figure that was just from the waist down?

    I remember a Muppet Babies live show (can't remember if it was on ice or just guys in suits running around), but a giant pair of just legs that extended beyond the top of the curtain beyond the audience's view was how Nanny was portrayed.... I feared those legs... I thought she would come into the audience and kill me and everyone else!

    Rowlf: Hi Nanny! What're you up to?
    NannY: Hi Rowlf! I'm going to kill the audience! Bwa Ha Ha Ha Ha! SQUISH SQUASH SQUOOSH!!!

    I seem to remember seeing nanny's top half and face in one of the muppet baby storybooks. I've passed them on to my kids and I'll look later. If I find what I'm thinking of, I'll scan it in and post it if yous would like.

    Hmm. I was thinking Blonde hair, but having watched one and a half episodes yesterday...I'm thinking brown hair.


    But would be interested to see what you've got Becky.

    I kind of wish that Nanny would kind of be like the Teacher in the charly Brown Cartoons where you really cant understand her. but the kids could. and i think nanny would be a very old lady. maybe even Jane henson typ. of corse i dont know jane very well she just seems the typ of Nanny for the Muppet Babies. I also want to say if she ever does come on here that i dont think of Mrs. Henson as old i just think she would make a good nanny.

    I always figured a teenager, like my baby sitter at the time but as a cartoon

    I think she's clearly elderly, but I always thought I had seen her in a pink bonnet in something, but I could be just imagining things.

    So far, of the books I've located there are more to find, I still have not found Nanny's face. But I know I've seen it somewhere. The search continues.

    My mother bought my youngest a stuffed Piggy for Christmas and it came with a one episode DVD of Muppet Babies. Remember the one when it was raining and the babies had to play inside with the activity book?

    I enjoyed it more than the kids did!

    i think it was to show the story more though a babys eye level like your the same size of the muppet babies when you look at them from that hight all you would be able to see would see up to nanny's socks

    I think it is kind of neat, because it leaves you with that intrigue as to what she really looks like.
