    I've come to the conclusion that it's possible Nanny lived in an apartment complex similar to where the Muppets lived in LTS and the Muppet parents let Nanny watch the kids while they went to work. Even when they stay overnight, Nanny could just be getting paid overtime to watch the kids so the parents could relax.
    And if you had a Muppet kid, I could definitely see why you'd want to have a break every once in awhile, LOL. :)
    You know, we never really get to see the closet much aside from Gonzo's imagination, but I'm willing to bet that there's a Fraggle Hole in there. The magic of Fraggle Rock would explain a LOT. It's definitely a portal to imagination, at least.

    Here's some ideas I had for future MB episodes involving baby versions of Henson/Sesame characters:

    1.) Kermit introduces his Sesame Street friends to everyone in the nursery, and chaos ensues when they can't find something they can all do together that's not annoying (like Ernie wanting to annoy Bert, Oscar slamming down his lid constantly, and Cookie Monster eating everyone's lunch!).

    2.) The babies go to a science museum to visit Bunsen and Beaker, as well as baby versions of Sid the Science Kid and his friends, but all Gonzo does is wreak havoc (with Animal too!), with his fantasies causing him to destroy exhibits, angering the other babies. By show's end, Gonzo and Animal (with the help of friends) fix the exhibit, after learning some scientific stuff from Bunsen, Beaker, Sid, Gabriela, Gerald, and May.

    3.) The babies visit a farm, and all seem bored until they learn four of the animals can talk, and those four turn out to be the Pajanimals! Sam the Eagle baby-sits for Nanny, and explains how farms are a great American habitat... until Cow Bella starts talking (and her being Italian, angers Sam). ;-) The babies have fun with each other, and at the end, sing "La-La-Lullaby".

    4.) While Nanny is away, she asks a younger Sarah (from "Labyrinth") to baby-sit the babies. But they don't listen to her, and of course, chaos ensues. Speaking of "chaos", Canadian Sesame Street's resident kitty cat visits, making friends, oddly, with Rowlf (and dogs usually don't like cats!), but scaring a visiting Tutter (since he's a mouse, and cats love to eat mice ;-)).

    5.) The babies visit Fraggle Rock, and meet baby versions of the Fraggles, singing and dancing all the way.

    You realize of course, that if they DID make a new series, crossovers would be completely out of the question. Maybe a Bear crossover... but you know the state of the Muppets being split up against 3 different owners, right? We're probably not going to get any cameos in The Greatest Muppet Movie, we sure wouldn't if they brought back this show somehow. Heck, the only Sesame Street appearances they had in the original series were film inserts and background photos, and they didn't even talk.

    You know i think you are right about the cross overs i really think that they would really never happen disney is so picky about rights to things and leting people have rights to disney and let really good cross overs happen .

    I have to say, I'd like to see the characters return to some extent (we had Disney Babies going as far as making Pooh and Princesses baby characters) as far as merchandising goes. But would I really want to see another MB TV series? Only if they step up the quality a little. Discuss things a little deeper... maybe more of an age difference between characters? As I said, how about young child Electric Mayhem characters, basically being the older brother figures (5-6 maybe 7), the chef as a teenage pizza delivery boy. Pepe being the youngest of the bunch and barely able to speak, but still managing to act like his older self, getting them constantly in trouble a way that even Animal couldn't.

    Oh I think baby versions of the Mayhem and Chef would work. Look at the links I posted just above you.

    I like the idea of having age differences rather than insisting every new character should be a baby. Sort of reminds me of that Yo, Yogi! series. Chef as a teenage pizza boy is especially clever.

    Also, a daycare makes more sense than Nanny's house (seriously, is it supposed to be an orphanage or something?). Nanny could still be in charge of the daycare, maybe assisted by Uncles Statler & Waldorf.

    I remember once toying with the idea of Pepe being one of those stereotypical "yuck, girls have cooties" youngsters. Then when puberty hit... well, you know.

    Maybe Sweetums could be the big new kid that everyone is initially intimidated by. Once they meet him, they learn not to judge a book by its cover.

    What about Baby Crazy Harry as one of those warped kids that tries to make explosives out of household objects? Or Andy & Randy as the younger obnoxious tag-a-longs?

    How about an episode where some of the kids create their own secret fort and leave Bobo the Bear in charge of keeping out unwanted visitors.

    Whenever the gang wants to build something to help fuel their imagination, they sneak into George (the daycare janitor)'s broom closet and borrow whatever they find.

    And Baby :news: could do his news reports inside of a cardboard box.

    I have a feeling somebody's going to suggest a Baby Constantine. :p

    (Apologies for bumping an old thread. I've been on a strange MB high lately, and this topic was the one that intrigued me most).
