    Hey guys, I'm working on a new puppet series called "The Wacky Adventures of Ernie :p and Bert :( " . Not to be confused with "Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures, I probably shouldn't worry about that since that series has ended and they haven't played reruns either. The show is about Bert and Ernie (obviously) going on wild adventures with 2 new characters, the 2 new characters are "Captain Quack" (a duck captain) and "Officer Plucky" (a pigeon policeman). I have already written the pilot and first few episodes but I have a few other writers for this series. It will be good for all of you hardcore Sesame Street fans because each episode will feature an appearance by an old retired muppet or an old school reference (similar to season 40 of Sesame Street). I won't spoil everything but the first episode features appearances by Guy Smiley and Little Bird and the next few episodes will feature appearances by Harvey Kneeslapper, Bip Bipadotta, Harvey Monster, Frazzle, Little Jerry and of course Sherlock Hemlock :search:. If you would like to see the puppet we will be using then check out my muppet replica thread http://muppetcentral.com/forum/threads/my-muppet-replicas.64191/page-6#post-1259396. Also I want to fond a way to make this series a Muppet Central exclusive.

    Make it unlisted but still embed here; that way, people will only be able to view it from this site.

    It would be cool if I could sell the series to this site and there would be a link to all the episodes on the main page

    Yesterday I was building the set for this show, the first part I made is Bert and Ernie's "hideout" (also the hideout that my cats use) which is a small orange house with a photo of these 2 above the door

    I wanted it to look super fun so I painted it in this fun shade of orange and put a nice printed picture of Ernie and Bert above the door and a printed picture of Bert, Grover :super: , Bert, Elmo :laugh: , Cookie Monster :insatiable: and Ernie on the shutters for the back window. I promised old school references so I did some hand drawn graffiti on the walls with references to the songs C is for Cookie, Rubber Duckie, Put Down the Duckie, Count it Higher, Ladybug Picnic, The Alligator King, Calcutta Joe and Roosevelt Franklin's Days of the Week and the characters SAM the Robot, Roosevelt Franklin, The Alligator King, Calcutta Joe and one of the ladybugs. I also added a small Little Chrissy and the Alphabeats poster

    I have 4 episode plots written and I need to decide which one I will use in the pilot

    1. Guy Smiley hosts another game of "Beat the Time" and the contestants have to find things that begin with the letter G. It appears that all of the G things have gone missing so Bert, Ernie, Captain Quack and Officer Plucky help find the G things
    2. The group (with the help of Super Grover :super:) travel to the North Pole to get some ice for Big Bird's :wisdom: lemonade

    3. Everyone on the street has switched places

    4. The Count's :batty: thunder is stolen

    How about you use these 4 episode plots for the first 4 episodes.

    I will but I want to use one of them for the Pilot so I need to chose which one

    I think the first episode plot would be a good plot for the pilot.
