    Very good stuff...

    Me likes Darkly Pallor, make him a fiend of Uncle Deadly's. Might be better as a Druid than a Reaper persona though.
    Wondering if the Newsman would be a good base character to turn him into a Muppet version of Blackbeard or if the pirate captain should be a new character.

    Here's one of mine...
    Morg & Glory: She's a two-headed vulture, known species-wise as a Transylvanian vulture. She has black vulture feathers covering her entire body, darkened black-grayish beaks, sharpened blackened-grayish talons on her feet, two vulture-plumed batlike wings with the tips curving around to form her fingers like Sam the Eagle, and two pointy blackened bat ears atop each head.

    Melvin: A nerdish little fella, who is the computer wiz of the muppet theater. He has long brown hair, big nerd glassess, and speaks with the classic lisp most classic nerds have.
    Furg: Melvin's best friend, and pretty annoying... Also causes the computer to randomly explode.
    Coach Steve: Based off my buddy Steve, typical yelling coach who trains the Muppets to do there own stunts. Big western accent.
    Bebo and Tom: Security of the Muppet Theater, one's a muscle head, who speaks in a very whimpy tone, the other is just loud.
    Ninja Colin: A lizard ninja, who, for some reason, wears a cowboy hat...A very confused soul indeed...

    Glitch: A Muppet computer virus. Looks like a green vector version of Waldo. Can get into anything electronic, like the Electric Mayhem's instruments and screw with them. With everything he messes up, he gets stronger. If he gets strong enough, he explodes and makes miniature copies of himself, and they do the same thing as him. He also sounds and talks like Vector Strong Bad.

    Not bad. Although, that character already exists. He was a precursor of Waldo C. Graphic in Innertube, the pilot episode of The Jim Henson Hour. Oddly enough, when the JHH aired on TV, it marked the debut and probably widest use of the computer animated/animatronic puppet now known as Waldo C. Graphic.
    You can find more information on Glitch at Muppet Wikia. Hope this helps.

    Woah. I never knew about that. Of course, I never saw The Jim Henson Hour. So, I got another one.

    Cryptal: A mummified ferret. As adorable as a mound of rotting fur and bandages can be. Or so you would think. She's got a bite as bad as a mosquito. Likes to hide in the shadows and attack when the time is right. Is cared for by the Darkly Pallor.
    I hope that this one isn't already been done!

    Aw... Cute. In a gothic horror lover sort of way.
    Maybe add a patch of gnawed off fur. Ooh, brainstorm! Cryptal could have a jewel or crystal embedded into her forehead or belly or some part of her body, reinforcing the druidic ties of Darkly Pallor... But the real brainstorm is that she could possibly have a crush on whatever rat character we bring in based on Rizzo.

    Great stuff, will contact you shortly.

    What about my characters, Count? Not cool?:smirk:

    Oh hey PhsychoChimp... Sorry, was replying directly to ZootyCutie's posts. Will have to reread yours though, hope that's OK. And don't get discouraged, so long as you think your own characters are cool that's what rully matters.

    John and Lena: A two-headed snake. They think they are super bad, but they are actually wimps. John is the male head and normally wears black shades. He's the laid back one of the two. Lena is the female head. She has brown hair in a ponytail and a golden fang. She's more energetic than John. They drive people off the wall with their singing about how Istanbul was Constantinople. They use their rattle on their tail to make music. They are from Istanbul. They think they are the scariest things alive, but everyone else knows better.
    Fans of They Might Be Giants might know where I got their homeland and obsession of it from. They are also named after John Linnel from They Might Be Giants.

    Yeah... And if John makes a date with Lena in Constantinople, but goes to pick her up in Constantinople... She'll be waiting in Istanbul.

    Yep! And here's another one!
    Maria: A female king prawn (would that be a queen prawn?:D) that Pepe is in love with. She has long black hair and wears a white sundress and white daisy in her hair. Has a Spanish accent and gets upset when she gets called a shrimp, like Pepe. Is actually an immigrant from Spain. She also likes Pepe, though she also finds him to be a little on the strange side. She has a bit of a mean streak and thinks that Rizzo and Dr. Teeth are "soft in the head". She says "buenos" in her sentences like how Pepe says "okay".

    Beebo: The slow, yet gentle, yet strong as an ox personal guard for Miss PIggy, so she doesn't have to deal with the tragity of a broken nail. He is tamed by his 'binkie' which is a small toy plastic fish tank palm tree.

    The Meep: Beaker's cool persona. It's just Beaker, only with yellow hair with black spots, a yellow t-shirt with black spots and yellow shoes with black spots. Unlike normal Beaker, The Meep can stand up for himself. Even though his speech is the same, his personality traits are completely different. He can use a dj system, fill up a video game's high score board and animates horribly made videos that praise him. He's no way a hapless asistant in this form. Man, he can clean your clock if you mess with him. My advice, don't mess with him when he's like this!

    why dont they just bring back the jim henson hour characters I think it would do the modern muppets a heep of justice.

    I more than agree. Bring back Digit, Leon, The Extremes, Waldo, Flash, Beard, and the Solid Foam Drummer. Have Solid Foam compete against The Electric Mayhem. Have Lindberg and Vicki appear in the background (it's been a logn time since Fran Brill last performed in a non-Sesame Street Muppet production, and I don't know if Gordon Robertson still performs for the Mupepts). Have Clifford and Bean Bunny make more new, major appearances again. And also bring back Lips, Thog, Doglion, Bill the Bubble Guy, Gorgon Heap, Uncle Deadley, Seymour, both Nigel's, Droop, and Dr. Phil van Neuter.

    I thought of another one!

    WhyBother Bird: This bird has maroon feathers, grey plumage on her head, a down-turned beak and permanently sad eyes. All she says is "why bother". She likes to be alone. She's to afraid to show that she wants OhBoy Bird to notice her.
  17. TotallySpiesFan

    How about this:

    NowWhat Bird: This bird is similar to Youknow Bird, but is yellow, has orange plumage on his head, and lidless eyes. All he says is "Now what?" He's too annoyed to show that he wants WhaddyaSay Bird and ForCryingOutLoud Bird to notice him.

    I think Rowlf's mom, and Wanda's mom would be perfect friends for Ms. Bear, don't you?

    Albert: A green Muppet with brown spiky hair. He sometime wears a white t-shirt with a checkered red one over it, and sometimes he wears a red hoodie. He was born in Albuquerque, where he had to eat sauerkraut until he was 26 and a half years old. He has a lucky autographed glow in the dark snorkle, and can play the accordian. He has a bandage on his face, due to the fact he put a grease fire out with his face. He takes thing a little to literally.

    Albert was inspired from the "Weird Al" Yancovich song "Albuquerque".

    Here's a character I created for my fanfictions:

    Sabrina: Zoot's younger cousin (about 30-35 years old). Looks very much like him, only female; has blue skin, blue hair, and sunglasses; dresses like a female hippie. She is also a jazz musician, but the similarities to her cousin end there. Sabrina is very outspoken, aggressive, and violent (or at least, so she acts. She has yet to actually hurt anyone.) and seldom addresses the other Muppets by name; instead, she calls them by mildly insulting nicknames (ex. she calls Floyd "pinky"). Is in love with Johnny Fiama, and is much calmer around him. Sal intensely dislikes her, but I haven't yet established whether this dislike is mutual.
