    I just saw the cast of France's new 5, Rue Sésame. A lot of them are "rejects" from the American version, it seems.

    Roxie Marie (1990s) = Griotte
    Narf (the orange one in Monster's Clubhouse) = Yoyo
    Carina the Ballerina (season 35) = Olive
    The penguins = Georges

    And of course...
    Elmo = Elmo

    Interesting stuff, more info on Wikipedia... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5,_Rue_Sésame

    There is something both funny and sense making about this. Clearly, waste not want not. It's always nice to see Muppets fleeing the country for reasons unknown and finding new life in a foreign country. :concern:

    SO does that mean WE in America have seen the last of Roxie Marie, Narf, and Carina?

    Actually, the Penguin looks like a different puppet than the penguins we have on SS. It's like a blending of SS style and TMS penguins.

    And, we have seen the last of Roxie Marie and Carina quite some time ago. Don't know about Narf.

    Elmo = Elmo?????!!!!!!!!!!

    Elmo is going to France!!!!!!!! Yeaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!(don't let the door hit you on the way out!)

    Oh, I know, I know, they have undoubtedly made enough clones of him to fight the Clone War from "Star Wars", but a person can still dream, can't they?

    It would be interesting to find out who will be doing his voice there, though. For some strange reason I just can't picture screachy little Elmo talking like "Pe-pe le pew".

    I think Narf will always be an Anything Muppet monster, as he has for the past few seasons. While Roxie Marie disappeared mid-1990s from SS, she was in a lot of SSL shows, up until recently, and has/had a whole page bio on the Sesamstrasse Live web site.

    Considering Carina was only tested on the American version, I was wondering about the character shown in the A&E Biography. Did anything ever happen to her, or was she proposed, and then shoved in a filing cabinet somewhere?
