    I couldn't remember the name at first, but I looked it up just now and it was Snoopy! The Musical, from 1988. :)

    Here's the Snoopy writer's clip from it that someone posted on youtube. Bad quality but you can basically see it and the sound is perfect (beautiful number!)


    Recognize the voice? It's Leonardo from the Ninja Turtles cartoon. Totally tubular!

    I'd definitely recommend this special! Oh and here's them singing "Just One Person!"

    I think we're about to serve up a muffin, but:

    Gobo - Han Solo
    Mokey - Leia
    Sprocket - Chewbacca
    Wembley - Luke
    Junior/Marvin(?) - Jabba
    Boober - C3PO

    Okay, I'm spent! LOL!

    Actually, it's in reference to The Incredible Shrinking Man, a sci fi movie from the 50's that The Incredible Shrinking Woman was parodying in 1981 (I actually prefer the Woman. Sydney the gorilla was the best!).

    My mistake. I meant to imply that Peanuts used it before Fraggle Rock, rather than Schulz having created the phrase. Charles Schulz was pretty well read, so it makes sense that he'd reference older literature in his comics.

    I never thought about it before but yeah, a lot of the Fraggle episode titles are some kind of spin on a common saying. Like as someone said earlier "Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk", which is used quite literally in that episode! (Love that episode btw! It's so pointless, but it's great! lol).

    Or "Bored Stiff." What happens in that episode anyway? I've read the summary but...

    Sorry, I read the summary too, but you probably know more than I do at this point.

    RKUNKLER Well-Known Member

    MAYBE THE WRITERS WRITE THE SCRIPT AND THEN come up with a title that fits, it would make sence but right now we dont know.

    I forgot to mention this Haralde, and it's another big muffin, but I think it's funny! You keep doing it to me! You always seem to make refference to something I said earlier, except you always seem to forget who said it, calling me, "someone"! I was the one who mentioned Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk, lol!
    Cute, cute trick.

    Really? Lol, that is funny. Sorry about that, I can get kinda lazy and forget to look back at things I've noticed. But very good point you made! ;)

    A link here would be fitting, no two men in the business have made more people smile that Jim Henson and Charles Schultz. They are surely 1a and 1b.
