    The Moppet Family...

    It's a role-play based on a tv series that has been acclaimed as, "The greatest non-existent tv series to talk the planet...except it doesn't exist...and cannot walk...sort of crawls...anyway...it's great."

    The series was invented for Moppet Central...sorry, we mean Muppet Central of course...*hiding away world domination plans*...a few years back, and has lived in various ways and threads ever since. More info about the history and family can of course be found at the MopFamWiki!

    It works as a basic sit-com, based around a family living in a world where anything can happen and frequently does -- from a cow in the herbaceous border to a pirate past coming back to haunt, from a pet Yak and a talking Bigfoot to a haunting past coming back to pirate.

    How it works is that you play your own characters, generally by:
    A. Speech (normal text)​
    B. *actions* (within asterisks)​
    C. Narration (At the beginning of a post)​

    If you want to join the game, you'd be WELCOME! It's always best to send me a PM to work out a character, and I can give you the rest of the rules before posting.

    For now, what you should know is that The Moppet Family live in a perfect little house with a white fence and a green lawn (Where brown cows eat green grass and make white milk...wait...I'm getting distracted), and that anything can happen. (Although in all seriousness, we're hoping to keep this series more character based comedy with less giant complex story lines...)

    Most of all, it's a comedy! So whether you join, read, or just try to ignore us...please smile and laugh! Life's a game...literally...

    This next post should wrap up the previous MopFam storyline carried over from the last thread, which involved Time Travel and Train Robbers...Thankfully, the train crashed...the gold was saved...and I think time crashed too, because it's taken till now for Father Moppet to---

    Father Moppet: *stumbles through a warp-like hole into the Moppet Family kitchen, wearing high-heeled cowboy boots with spurs* Howdy, howdy, wait a minute! *stumbles in boots and hangs onto a chair for support* Hang on...Wait a second, whooah...Hold onto your hats and boots and high-riding horse-riding chappers, chaps...We appear to have returned...*chair back breaks as Father collapses to the floor* Oh honey, I'm home!


    A few days later, Father walks downstairs in a woolen bathrobe to answer the doorbell.

    Father: Hmm...perhaps I shouldn't be wearing this woolen bathrobe at 2.30 in the afternoon...Besides, a woolen bath would just be ridiculous...it would never keep the water in...Shall we just say I walk downstairs in a house-coat instead? *removes bath-robe and puts on a trench-coat from the hat-rack before answering the door..."

    (OOC: I'll let her know if and when I see her! Who knows, maybe even Father will get to see her again one day :p)

    Father: *still in process of opening front door...* Who added all these locks and bolts...Mother? *wondering if maybe, even Father will get to see her again one day...*

    A tall beautiful woman with red curls and green eyes is standing outside the door, carrying a little girl about 18 months old on her right arm. In her left hand she's holding a big bag with a yellow flower pattern.

    Miss Mingostone: *humming a happy little song while waiting for the door to be opened*

    Father: *still opening the door to cheesy door-unlocking sound effects* I don't suppose you'll fit through the cat-flap by any chance? *notices the catflap is also bolted up* Nevermind...*calling* Look, if it's the milkman just leave it on the doormat! And...if you need paying...just take the doormat! It's an original! It was used in that movie with Matt Damen!

    Mingostone: It's me, the nanny you called for! *looks at baby girl on her arm* And my daughter. *calls through door* Do you still have that back door?

    Father: *unlocking a final chain* Ahh! Right! Ahh! There you are!...*distracted by the 'Ball and Chain' mace standing in the umbrella stand* I knew I'd left that somewhere... *still hasn't got the door open* Be there in a minute!

    Mingostone: *hears the chain-unlocking-noises stopping* That's it? *puts down her bag and slowly opens door* You there Mr Moppet?

    Father: *other side of the door* Yes? *puts ear to door...rather than just opening it* Miss Mangletone, is that your dulcid tones I hear beyond the woodwork? And the sound of woodworms? And the traffic?

    Mingostone: *has opened the door so much that she can just squeeze in* Mr Moppet!
  11. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Father: Good heavens girl!...Oh, I really must get some security fixed for these doors if people can just squeeze in all the time...Maybe some locks?...Anyway, Mingo! It's fantastic to see you. I was just thinking to myself a wonder whether Christy would return any-time soon to put a woman's touch around the place again...It's not been the same since Vic left...But, delightful! You're here instead! Did you bring any flowers, pot pourri, some pink ribbons...Anything womananly...Besides a baby, of course.

    Quick footsteps are heard on the stairs. A 5-year-old boy with messy hair and a cute little pyjamas appears, running as if for his life - followed by a girl same age with her hair in three very characteristic pigtails and wearing a pink night gown... also seeming to run for her life.

    Vibs: Aaarrrrrghhhhhh!

    Viq: ARRRGHHH!

    *Both see father - and stop*: Hi dad. *Big innocent smiles*

    *Both start running again, out the door past Miss Mingostone*

    Mingostone: *waves at twins as they run by her, then turns to Father* My goodness, they've grown! Anyway, as I was saying, hello Mr Moppet! Yes, this is my baby, she's grown as well actually. Her name is Kenya. Kenya Tallulah Ivy Mingostone to be exact. *puts her down* She can walk by herself now.

    Kenya: *does a little dance as if to demonstrate, then suddenly sits down and looks up at Father* Man?

    Mingostone: Aww... Look after her while I go get my bag, will you? *walks out the door*

    Meanwhile immediately outside the Moppet House...

    *Mr Harvey – Mr Moppet’s work colleague - stands outside of the front door with a cardboard box containing the essentials an employees of Wilson’s would require*

    Mr Moppet, I’m home!

    *Carefully places his load down on top of another matchbox*

    Or I should say “Mr Moppet, I have arrived at my temporary place of employment!”

    I’m afraid that our employers at Wilson’s have hit financial difficulties and as a cost cutting exercise they’ve closed down the building and all employees are to work from their homes for the foreseeable future. But in my case I’ll have to make do with working here.

    *waits expectantly in the middle of the hallway for the further instructions from the Management he instinctively anticipates will be arriving in the near future*

    Walking pass the Moppet house holding two leases is Kyle and his two pets, Yakky and Biggy. He waves as he passes by with both of his pets doing the same.

    Kyle: Where are we going again?

    Biggy: Were going to the store. Remember?

    Kyle: Oh yea. We need groceries. *remembers something else* We also need to get our newest Veggie Plush.....

    Biggy & Kyle: "Turnip Green!"

    They both race off towards the store with Kyle riding Yakky and Biggy running on all fours.

    Somewhere in the Moppet House garden Vibs and Viq are sitting, hiding behind a bush.

    Viq: ... Vibs, do you think maybe we should have warned people about-

    Vibs: *whispering* Ssh! I-i-it will hear us you moron!

    Viq: Oh, wha- Okay I know we're being chased by a big horrible monster that is most capable of destroying our house, our family, our town and let's face it - possibly the entire universe. And I also know that we are the two unfortunate kids who just happened to make it come to life from our deepest nightmares, just because we thought it might be fun to have a pet monster and because we haven't done magic for a long time *breathes* - But there's NO need for calling me a moron!

    Vibs: *knocks Viq out a lil bit*

    Father: *blinks at Kenya Tallulah Ivy Mingostone* Baby? *blinks at rushing of twins* Bigger babies... *blinks at Mr Harvey* Business? *blinks at mirror* Yes, I thought I had something in my eye...*blinks a few more times* VIBS! VIQQQ! Get back inside and empty the dishwasher!

    Big Horrible Monster: FFNNNAAARRRRFF!

    *comes walking down the stairs. Is big, green, fluffy, with one big eye and has huge sharp teeth*

    Big Horrible Monster: ... Me empty dishwasher. *walks over to the dishwasher in the kitchen, grabs dishwasher and ever so gently opens it, takes out plates, neatly put them on top of each other... and swallow the lot of them including the dishwasher - looks at father and points to the spot in which the dishwasher used to be* EEeeeem-pty.

    A young woman stands in her front yard, staring at the ground. As she continues to stare, Nell Nellingston wondered who and where she was. Pondering and pondering, she quietly bends down and places the three snails in front of her in an orderly single-file line.

    As she does so, two tiny creatures stare at her from afar....

    Shanker: What'samatta wi' her?

    Great Uncle Seamus: Amnesia, apparently.... but not to worry! I'm working on something as we speak that will hopefully restore her memory to its full potential!

    Shanker: *nods solemnly*

    (OOC: Welcome back Nell!)

    Father: *stares at giant one-eyed creature* About time someone pulled their own weight in this house and did some chores. Wait...What? *turns to Mr Harvey* Better step into the living room before you see anything you don't want to...Or just shut your eyes, either way is fine.
