    Yeah, I think they're just more used to the newer, politically correct stuff.

    I think it's probably because of all the explosives and physical Comedy gags that happen within the commercials.

    Frankly I see these two as nothing more than one-joke characters, and they sure pull it off well.

    Well, the Muppets have a history of one joke characters somehow becoming popular. I point you to Lew Zealand, Crazy Harry, and The Count.

    And they almost always seem to be Jerry Nelson characters.

    You could also say Beaker, what with all the mishaps he gets in. :D
