    I've noticed that some puppets they use are from Bear in the Big Blue House and Statler and Waldorf: From the Balcony. How is that possible?

    My best guess is that the characters you're talking about are just generic animals and creatures, who aren't protected by copyright...

    Ah, I see. I didn't know those were excluded.

    I don't know all by name, but Penelope the Tortoise, the armadillo, Pokey (Today Show takeovers, Muppets Tonight), the beaver, and some others I can't remember now.
