    Anyway, I actually took a listen to the customer's voice in "Body Rythyms", and that definitely sounds like Brian Muhel trying to do a Frank Oz voice.

    It makes a little sense too, considering Richard was David's mentor, and now David is performing just about all of Richard's characters like Scooter and Janice.

    Another something I just recently noticed: in "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," the supposed "diamonds" in the black sky only appear whenever Betty Lou is singing or speaking - it's especially noticable after the song where she informs one of the hippies she wasn't singing about Lucy, but rather, Wanda the Witch.

    I noticed that myself.

    Along with how badly chroma-keyed it was. :shifty:

    Maybe so, but this was the late 60s, so you have to be a little forgiving - the technology was still relatively new at the time. ;)

    Oh, I know. It's one of those things you just notice as a video person. ;)

    Oscar looks dead when the convoy is first pulling out of Sesame Street to go search for Big Bird in FTB.

    Does anyone else hear Jim Henson's voice as the Green Alphabeat in this song?

    To me it looks like Kevin Clash is puppeteering Chrissy.

    Yeah, I can see why you think that.

    Who do you think puppeteered Chrissy in this number? It’s definitely not Jim, I can tell.

    No, I can actually see a hint of Kevin puppeteering him.

    Another FTB one, but you know how there's a decal of a stylized red letter K in the back of Waylon Jennings's truck? As a little kid, I always thought that was supposed to be a Kmart sticker. :p

    It doesn’t seem like Jim Henson is performing the puppetry for Kermit in the segment, it looks more like Jerry Nelson.

    Nah, I don't see much of a hint of Jerry in there. If anything, I think he was puppeteering the Green hippie and lavender woman.

    But the puppetry doesn’t really look like Jim Henson, the lip sync is off.

    To be fair, every puppeteer has had a slip up of lip-synching at some point.

    Am I the only one that's been kind of bothered by Grover's flanderization as of late? He used to be just sort of scatter brained and a bit clueless, and he tried too hard to please people which sometimes resulted in him getting worn out. Nowadays, he still has a lot of jobs and tries to be helpful, but it's gotten to the point that he's almost completely idiotic. It's like he can't do anything right.

    To a certain degree, yes. I mean, I like it when he's not necessarily a major part of the plot, because in that context, he's a genuine show-stealer, which makes him all the more endearing. But at the same time, yes, it's almost as if he's just become an outright lamebrain.

    Unfortunately, this is something that's all too common with the dimwitted characters of kids shows: they just get progressively stupider the longer a show goes on. Ed? Kel? Two very good examples.
