Season 36 Character Questions

Discussion in 'Sesame Street' started by The Count, Apr 4, 2005.

    OK. Guess the easiest thing would be to add him as "The Packaging Tape Delivery Man" or Delivery Guy or Delivery Person, however it was you posted it above. I'll check it after making this post.
    That is unless there's any objections or suggestions to have him under a different entry heading like "Super Chicken's Delivery Person"?
    Hope to hear from you soon and have a good day.

    Anybody know who provides the voices for The Count's singing Number of the Day organ? I recognize one of them as Martin Robinson and I think another is Fran Brill, but who are the others? Just a random curiosity. Thanks.

    Here are my best guesses:

    1--Frank Oz
    2, 6, 10, 14, 18--Fran Brill
    3, 9, 13, 15--John Tartaglia
    4, 12, 20--Stephanie D'Abruzzo
    5, 11, 17--Marty Robinson
    7, 19--David Rudman
    8, 16--Joey Mazzarino

    Matt Vogel could've been a voice, but I can't tell (it's hard to tell which is John and which is Matt; it's the same thing with Fran and Stephanie).

    Hmmm, thought 5 and 7 were Marty, cause it sounded like Telly's voice to me. Oh well.
    Should the Counting Organ be added?

    And is it Samara or Samera? Lost track of her name's pronunciation from yesterday's episode in my mind's memory box.
    Hope to hear from you guys soon and have a good day.

    I forgot to check Samera's/Samara's name.

    And yes, the Organ has a personality (20 of 'em!) and is a Muppet (or 20 of 'em), so yes, they can be added. Could they be labeled like so?:

    The Count's Counting Organ: Pipe #1 (SS)
    The Count's Counting Organ: Pipe #2 (SS)
    The Count's Counting Organ: Pipe #3 (SS)
    The Count's Counting Organ: Pipe #4 (SS)

    ...and so on?

    Count: Since they're all indiwidually-voiced pipes... I don't see vhy not!!

    That'd make it 3771 entries, just waiting for a few name corrections like Samara/Samera's, the Candy Cane Lane Citizens, and the Hawaii Vacation kids when you get the chance MD. Have a vonderful day.

    By the way, for the next four days I'll be on my fall break, so I probably won't be able to talk with you until next week.

    Ooh, a Fall Break? As opposed to a Spring Break? Man, you US college students are lucky. We just get the standard federal and state holidays like Veteran's Day and T-Day along with the Friday after, until Christmas vacations.
    Hope you enjoy yourself MD. Oh, and when you get a chance to reply/answer the questions above just post away my friend.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    I didn't even think that Frank Oz was even one of them. I guessed Marty RObinson was 1. I can pretty much tell which is Fran Brill. Her voice is easy to pick out because it is so distinctive. The one's who guessed as being Stephanie are more operatic sounding, which is not the way Brill's voice is, so that makes sense. I thought Rudman was there. Tartaglia is tough because I don't really know his voice. Thanks for the help.

    It was "Samara". I just checked. Also, yes, the Organ should be added as a character. It would be just like adding one of the random inanimate object Muppets from Elmo's World on there. It is a Muppet and has a voice, of course you should add it!

    Question, when you make your listings, Ed, is it only Muppet characters or do you also include all human characters as well? Do you include non-human/non-Muppets as well, like Bernice the pigeon, Dorothy the goldfish, Chuckie Sue the hamster, etc..? Just curious.
  11. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Thanks Bear, will add her now. And yes, everything's covered. If you haven't seen it yet, I recommend you go to the Muppet Listings 15.0 thread in the Classic Muppets section and go to the first page where the last posted version can be found, and you'll see that your questions will be answered quite almost instantly.

    That is to say yes, human characters and non-human non-Muppet characters are included so long as they're already there. You'll get it after leafing through the list.
    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    OK... From 4098: Goldilocks Takes Over.
    Little Miss Muffet, is this the same one from the Miss Muffet Production Number?
    If not, should she be added to the list?
    Should the Spider, I think voiced by Kevin, also be added to the list?
    Little Jack Horner, is this the same one as seen in The Case of the Missing Pie with Colambo?
    Or is this a different character, and should it be added to the list?
    Was the Goldilocks that appeared in this episode the same one we already have listed? I ask because I noticed she spoke with a different-sounding voice than her normal voice.
    Also, how should the characters from 4093 be added: individually, or together under the "Storybook Community School" subheading?
    In Elmo's World: Bugs, there were the following insects at the beginning.
    Fly, Spider, Bumblebee, Butterfly, Cricket, and Ladybug.
    Should all of these be added? Or were The Fly and The Spider the only Muppet insects that appeared in this segment?

    Hope to hear from you guys soon and have a good day.

    She's a different version; she's a short lavendar AM with black curls, an orange (pink?) nose, and eyelids.

    Should the Spider, I think voiced by Kevin, also be added to the list?

    He's made from the fat blue spider frequently used, but (I couldn't tell; the picture I was watching messed up) he either had three yellow eyes, or two yellow eyes and a yellow nose.

    Little Jack Horner, is this the same one as seen in The Case of the Missing Pie with Colambo?
    Or is this a different character, and should it be added to the list?

    He's a new version, a green AM with dark brown hair and a hot pink nose, and (I think) lavendar eyelids.

    Was the Goldilocks that appeared in this episode the same one we already have listed? I ask because I noticed she spoke with a different-sounding voice than her normal voice.

    It's the basic same character (she was slightly redesigned last year, replacing her hat and bright yellow hair with gold-colored curls and a big blue bow), but performed by someone else (I guess Alice Dinnean wasn't available then).

    Also, how should the characters from 4093 be added: individually, or together under the "Storybook Community School" subheading?

    I guess individually, and indicating which show they came from.

    In Elmo's World: Bugs, there were the following insects at the beginning.
    Fly, Spider, Bumblebee, Butterfly, Cricket, and Ladybug.
    Should all of these be added? Or were The Fly and The Spider the only Muppet insects that appeared in this segment?


    The cricket was Gus Hopper, but I believe all of the others (minus the spider) were built specially for this segment. (Did you catch the "Ladybug Picnic" reference?)
  14. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    So... That's a "Yes" to all of these?
    Know of the reference, just didn't catch it today cause I didn't watch the Elmo's World segment throughout... Watching Mike & Mike where there was an SS reference.
    BTW: The FR questions are done with, muppet_dk helped finish them off... Except for the Spiderflies which were added, all the others will be treated as mythic FR creatures.
    Hope this helps and hope to hear from you soon.

    Why did this Goldilocks sound like Carroll Spinney to me? Oh well...
  16. Daffyfan2003

    Daffyfan2003 Active Member

    Didn't she leave a while ago? I remember hearing that she used to voice Mama Bear but was replaced by Jennifer Bernhardt. Though that was a few years ago. This Goldilocks sounded different then when she appeared last season. She might have had multiple performers.
  17. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Active Member

    Alice used to play Mama Bear.

    Goldilocks was originally played by Camille Bonora, then Alice Dinnean, and (for at least one show) Jen Barnhart.
  18. Daffyfan2003

    O.K., so we're assuming it was one of those three who performed her in yesterday's ep.

    By the way, does Camille Bonora still perform Countess Von Backwards in the "Number of the Day" segments, or has she stopped performing altogether?

    :sympathy: :concern: :) "Or has she stopped performing?"
  19. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Active Member

    Jen played her yesterday (she was right-handed).

    Camille stopped performing with the Muppets since the mid-to-late 90s, and Fran Brill took over the Countess's role. The last thing I seen Camille in was a puppeteer on a Christian children's show.
  20. Daffyfan2003

    I get it. I have read in "Sesame Encyclopedia" that Fran Brill played the original Countess (von Dahling). I guess she recently took over the role of the current Countess von Backwards.
