    Yes, Stan the man is the one I was talkin' about. Though should he be listed as just "Stan" or "Stan the Police Officer"?
    Well, still need 11 more entries, hope to hear from you guys soon.

    He'll be listed as "Stan the Police Officer".

    Here are some more entries. From the National Bird Debate from Sesame Street's "The American Revolution":

    THE SPEAKER-- Herry Monster

    BENJAMIN FRANKLIN--Telly Monster


    JOHN ADAMS-- Ernie

    Me knows the sketch you're talking about TSF, the one where they're trying to decide what should be the national bird of the United States. But who was Oscar portraying? And how would you conciliate Thomas Jefferson as played by Bert in that sketch with Thomas Jefferson as played by Don Music in the sketch where Grover's trying to get him a quill to write the Declaration of Independence?

    I guess Oscar played John Dickinson.

    OK, Im intrigued. Just how do you deduce that Oscar was John Dickinson? Interested in learning what led you to say that. Was he holding some sort of crumpled paper pamphlet or something like that? And should both Thomas Jeffersons be added to the list?
    If so, I'll wait for you and my trusty sources to say so. And if so, that'd leave only 5 entries more for the list to get posted in it's big bad fifteenth version.

    I found the clip on the Internet somewhere. I'll check it out later today. ;)

    Which clip would that be MuppetDude? The one we're talking about here with the American Revolution SS cast? Or one of the others I'm looking for? Well, look forward to hearing from you as soon as you can reply.

    The "American Revolution" clips:



    Here's the list of characters (NOTE: All are in period costume):

    BEN FRANKLIN--Telly with a grey balding wig and glasses.


    Unknown--Oscar (I didn't see any papers in front of him; just a sign with a cockatoo on it)

    JOHN ADAMS--Ernie


    THE SPEAKER--Herry

    THOMAS JEFFERSON #2--Don Music

    PHIL THE CHICKEN--Don gets his quill from him.

    MR. GROVER--Grover (that's what Don calls him)

    There's a third clip, of George Washington crossing the Delaware, but Boober_Gorg is the only person I know who has heard of it.

    Thanks MuppetDude, only four more entries and we can finally get this bad boy online.
    Gonna leave Oscar and Elmo out of the picture for the time being, unless anyone can confirm what personages they were playing with some degree of certainty.

    Hope to hear from you guys soon.

    You want four more entries? You got four more entries!

    MURPHY BROWNBAG--I've seen her only once in a sketch with Cookie Monster. She is a brown paper bag designed to look like Candice Bergen (she's sort of built like a homemade puppet, but more "Muppety").

    THE PRINCE AND THE PIG--appear in two episodes in which Elmo writes their story. They're a really funny comedy duo played by David Rudman and Joey Mazzarino. The pig (whose actual name was George) was a generic pig puppet, and the prince is a tall orange AM with black page-boy hair, crown and purple shirt with blue vest. He has a pink nose and orange eyelids. They should be labeled together since both appear together in those two episodes.

    JOHN-BUBBA-JOHN--a Muppet yokel. He's a lavendar live-hand AM that looks like a short-haired balding Forgetful Jones, without a moustache and a red/white plaid shirt.

    LYDIA--John's wife, an orange live-hand AM with big blonde hair, eyelids and lashes, a blue nose, big earrings, and (I think) a blue/yellow dress.

    TIME FOR THE LIST!!!! :) :) :)

    Knew I could count on you, my trusted sources and friends. Recalibrating the numbering sequence, will post when ready.

    BTW: MuppetDude, please LMK if/when you get that little slip in the mail. And if the tapes are on their way.
  12. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Well-Known Member

    Will do. Did you get my message about extra SS clips being at the end of one tape?
  13. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Yep, that's on the second tape right? You'll see the new thread some time this week, at least I hope.
