    Here you go Count... With the press release on-line, I figured I'd help you out by giving you an early start...

    RSI: Rhyme Scene Investigation...

    June Moon- Small Purple AM (round head, not angular) purple triangular nose that matches the rest of the head color, realistic long blonde hair (as opposed to something completely Yellow and fabric), female eyes with blue lids, small blonde eye brows light brown suit red shirt underneath, also wearing white gloves...rod arms

    Joe Doe: I'm guessing he's based off David Caruso... orange round AM, orange triangular nose that's a lighter shade than his face, sunglasses, orange hair that's darker than his head, black suit, white tie with black criss crosses on it... rod arms.

    Panicky guy: Fat Blue AM, small round pink nose, round eeyes with green lids, greying black eye brows, balding white hair (think Doc from back to the Future), medium brown suit, ugly blue/ green/ orange plaid shirt and ugly brown plaid tie. Rod arms...

    Howie Eats Well: Howie Mandell send up... (the picture's kinda small, so I'll redescribe him later) Orange thumb shaped round AM, bald, red/orange tear drop shaped nose, heavy eyes with green lids, black eye brows, black goatee (?) black suit, white shirt, black tie.

    Dancing with the Triangles host- Yelloy Guy Smiley AM. He looks similar, especially the hair, but it's a lighter color (brown I think) he has a red tear drop nose, heavy eyes with red lids. Black Tuxedo, white shirt, black bow tie. Glove arms.

    Dawg: American I host- that little Brown beagle with the white face. The one Baby Bear turned into, I think

    Amazing Alphabet Race Host (Amazing l)- large light Purple round AM. messy light brown hair cut, thin triangular orange nose, heavy eyes with blue lids, light brown small thin eye brows. Wearing light blue button shirt with collar. Glove hands.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks buddy. Usually, I wait till the season starts before starting these threads, cause that's when I have the names/characters begin piling up.

    Few questions.
    The "Dancing with Triangles" Host, wouldn't that be a Tom Berjeron Muppet instead?
    From Grouch News Network, is the character's name Dan "Rather-Not"? Because I've seen it for months as "Rathernot" at Muppet Wiki, and it's only now in the press kits from SW that he's refered to as "Rather-Not", and you know I'd like to have it correct.

    Shame Law & Order: SLU got replaced with RSI, we'll have to wait and see.
    Have some preliminary thoughts based on the episode synopses, but I'll reserve judgment until I've watched the episodes.

    If anybody else has info to help this season's cast get completed, please post here.
    Again, thanks Drtooth.

    I guess you could call it a Tom Bergeron Muppet.... They didn't go into great detail about what the host's name is.

    The Press release also hyphenates "Rather-not" as well.

    There are some other characters I could describe, but all I see are pictures and there aren't any names yet... so they may just be random unnamed AMs...

    No worries. We can take care of those as the season starts and progresses. Just have to fix up the Muppet-Kid Moment tags, get the Vile Bunch questions sorted out, and renumbering for V17 to be posted. We're nearing the 5K mark, and almost finishing off a total of 99 pyramid-styled rows full of characters from the entire Muppet Universe. Course, with Season 38 we'll definitely surpass the 5K post.

    Hey Drtooth buddy... If you could help in sorting out the miners at the J-Mine in the Alphabet Mines News Flash segment, that'd be a big help.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    ... And so it begins! Welcome to another season of Sesame Street and questions about its characters. So let's get started.

    Episode 4135: Elmo and The Bookaneers.
    The Bookaneers.
    Ms. Giant Squid, or should it be "Miss" Giant Squid?
    Rhyme Scene Investigation:
    Joe Doe
    June Moon
    Pat the Dog
    Pat the Dog's Owner
    Nat, who works at the America's Most Wanted Rhymes computer center
    The Hat
    The Cat
    Slugger the Bat, or is it "Slugga" instead?
    Elmo's World: Beach.
    The character who wiped out after counting surfers.
    During the TV Beach Channel parody, were the characters animated or actual Muppets? If Muppets, then I'd appreciate your help with descripts and names.
    The guy who showed up as the episode's guest towards the end.
    The sea gull?
    Rotten Eggs and Jam:
    Scram I Am
    The Big Guy

    Hope to hear from you guys soon.

    I need to see some of it again to give you a more accurate reading, but here goes...

    starting backwards (as my mind usually does)

    The Big Guy was Gordon in a weird (I think) red Body suit, sort of like feetie pajamas, and he wore a cat in the hat white and red stripped hat with large black holes in it. He had weird wiskers coming out of his face. i dunno if it was a Seuss style mustache or something.

    The Scram I Am was a brown grouch with a red hat similar to Sam I Am's.

    I already gave the descriptions of the RSI guys up to the point the clip ended on the site, but I will add Joe Doe has (behind his glasses) circle heavy muppet eyes with orange lids.

    I forget the Dog at the moment. but Nat was never seen, and just referred to over the phone.

    The Hat was a Cowboy hat with standard cicle eyes (no lids) eyes a green small round nose, and his mouth was where the brim of the hat meets the hat band. It had teeth. Can't remember the color of the hat. I'm thinking light tan. The Cat was the same puppet as Chip (or Dip). The Bat was basically a Baseball bat with muppet eyes and a small round nose (I recall red or pink, but I wasn't paying too much attention). His name was Slugger, as in Louisville Slugger.

    The crabs in the Elmo's world segment were indeed "Beach Channel" cartoons.

    The Squid was a giant CGI cartoon/Muppet hybrid of a squid. she had Muppety Eyes, and a cool green (not quite blue green, but not just plain green) body with pink splotches all over the body.

    Head Bookaneer was Tina Fey. Nothing too special, but she was wearing Piratey clothes (but still wearing glasses. never saw a pirate with glasses).

    The other two. One was an orange thumb shaped AM with a small green nose and Muppet eyes (it escapes me if it had lids and what color they were). he had Black Dreadlocks like Jack Sparrow and a red and black stripped sock hat. I believe he aslo wore the same brown leather vest and white shirt that Jack wore too.

    The other was basically the Beagle puppet they usually use with an eye patch and a black pirate scarf hat. He wore a pirate outfit, but I don't recall much, as it wasn't seen much.

    Thanks for your invaluable help.

    If Nat was never seen on screen, then who was at the RSI's computer center with the Hat, Cat, and Slugger the Bat?
    How would it be best to label the individual Bookaneers?
    The Bookaneers' Captain is Tina Fay, so that's taken care of.
    The other two, would it be best to call them "Jack Sparrow Muppet" and "Beagle Pirate"?
    Still need help with EW, but when you get the chance.

    I was sort of wondering who voiced the Muppet pirate. It sounded to me like a Jerry Nelson voice, but since he's semi-retired, he may not do too much other than perform his already existing characters such as Count von Count. Just a bit curious there.
  10. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    No one. Just the 2 agents and the guy who lost his dog.


    large yellow Guy Smiley AM. Light Brown hair (kinda messy), dark brown horn rimmed glasses, eyes with green lids, big big large red nose, Standard grey suit with white shirt and black tie. Live hands.

    Old lady buying cookies- (I think they used this puppet last season too) Fat blue AM grey/ dark brown curley hair. circle eyes with orange lids with eye lashes. Little Round pink nose Black old lady hat (Don't know if it has a specific name) and a grey old woman suit with a white frilly large bow. White gloves. Rod arms.

    Guy putting mail into the mail box that Abby Turned into a pumpkin
    Round lavendar/purple AM, white and red plaid shirt, kinda messy very light brown hair. Little round green nose, eyes with pink lids. Live hands.

    Taxi Driver (from Elmo's World)- A send up of Robert DiNero's character in Taxi Driver. Green Diamond AM, dark black glasses, Black Mohawk, green triangular nose, black leather jacket, rod arms.

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Thanks... Didn't even know about the Mailman or the Taxi Driver (the latter from EW) until this post pointed them out.

    Episode 4136: Chris Gets a Job.
    Chris Robinson.
    The Salesman.
    The Cookie Sale Customer, unless you have other better suggestions for how she should be called?
    Horatio Elephant.
    Karina, the kid Elmo was talking before getting swept into Abby's magic.
    Should Fred Newman be counted as a guest/character? Not sure about that myself.

    Will go over my show notes again and post if I find something in need of naming.
  12. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    As for listing him as Chris Robinson, I would be hesitant to list his last name. We don't know how he is related to Gordon. He would only have that last name if Chris is Gordon's brother's son. However, if it is Gordon's sister's son, or the son of one of Susan's siblings his last name would be something else.

    But on the other hand, since last names are basically fan trivia, and we may never find out who's son Chris is, Robinson is a pretty accurate guess.

    As for the Customer.... well... if you have an entry for last year concerning the old women at Hoopers in the "Alan's Pretend School" episode, it's basically the same exact muppet.
  13. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Well... The customers seen at Hooper's last year in Episode 4116 were added as "Hooper's Store Customer" with appropriate numbering, as those were the third and fourth to receive such a designation, the first and second coming from episode 2256 Elmo names his Baby Doll David.

    Not sure if that'd be a good idea here, since this was a customer at Cookie's Cookie Emporium/cookie sale. But it'd be a start and I'm thinking "Old Lady" might be another solution.

    Chris is Gordon's Nephew... So I can see that it should be left at just that for the time being.

    Thanks, this is all great help. The listing's seventeeth version is finished, all that's keeping from posting it are the production totals stats which are somewhat messed up. But I'm not fiddling with that until I get some school errands that've been sorely neglected done first. Talk to you guys tomorrow when I've gotten the cast from the next episode.

    Ilikemuppets Well-Known Member

    You know, I'm not sure, but I distinctly heard him say the name Robinson, but I'm not sure at what part or if at all. Maybe I'm hearing things?
  15. Daffyfan4ever

    Daffyfan4ever Well-Known Member

    Actually, I think he did call himself Chris Robinson on the show, it's safe to say that it is his last name, meaning he came from Gordon's side of the family unless one of Susan's siblings has the same last name by sheer coincedence. But it's pretty likely he was the spawn of, well, maybe Olivia. Who knows what she's been doing in the length of time that she hasn't been on the show? Lol. Seriously, though, I'm guessing that Gordon has another sibling somewhere that hasn't been introduced, who would have had Chris. Just my guess.

    Now, Count, in answer to your questions, we know that Horatio was played by Joey Mazzarino. I'm not too sure about the lady that wanted to buy cookies, but it was most likely a female puppateer. I really don't know about anybody else though. I'll let you know if I think of who might have played what character.

    I can't say for sure, but that Blue lady buying cookies sound like Leslie Carrara?

    Hi guys... Some new entries to go over from today.

    Episode 4137: Abby's Dog Word Book.
    The word "Dog" itself. Was it written in capitals?
    Should it be known as "Action Dog", since that was the character's full name in the title of the book it came from?
    Should it have "the Word" attached after the name to specify that it's the word "Dog"?

    There was a segment with an opera about washing your hands. Did this involve Muppets or animated characters?
    If it involved Muppets, I'd appreciate help in describing and naming them all.

    A's Anatomy, need help in describing and naming all the characters that appeared here.

    Scram Moon, what characters appeared during this bedtime story?

    Hope to hear from you guys soon.

    Dog was indeed written in caps, in a sort of curved font. It was a CGI representation, that looked like a 3-D version of the word. It kept "chasing it's tail" (maybe the G), and the D kept curving up at it's spine simulating a mouth.

    The "Soap Opera" featured a muppet Singing bar of soap and 2 back up towels.

    Soap: Pink rectangular bar of soap, the tall way with muppet eyes with red lids and lashes. It was singing in a sink.

    The 2 Towels (They were unnamed but I can guess this much)

    Hers towel Orange, Red Lipstick, eyes with lashes and red lids.

    His Towel Light yellow, red eyelids (no lashes)

    They both had the standard red mouth pink tongue black uvula.

    As for A's anatomy.....

    The Ambulance driver ( who arrived shouting emergency) :
    Big Lavender AM. Green eyelids, blue tear shaped nose
    Rod Arms
    Wore a blue Ambulance driver uniform, no hat. Light brown messy hair.

    Male Doctor
    Orange thumb AM with Live hands. Purple eye lids, red tear shape nose, Messy darker brown hair
    White Lab Coat with green plaid shirt and tie, wore a stethoscope. He also had black plastic glasses (they weren't very thick, and they were the standard not quite round, not quite square shape)

    Female Doctor
    Large Pink AM (sort of like the Count but Pink) with live hands. Light purple eyelids, small green circle nose, short blonde hair. White lab coat with purple shirt. She also had glasses, but they looked like wire frames.

    A-skelliton... 3 bones in the configuration of the letter A hanging from a metal frame.

    Hi guys... Back with today's list of characters.

    Episode 4138: Lucy the Lazy Lizard.

    Sadie Schwartzbaum.
    The five covered dish presentors, caught the names of three: Joan, Leslie, and Paula, need the names of the other two as well.

    Since I only saw Howie as a smalle picture, I wasn't able to be as thourough. But he's the Orange Thumb AM that has live hands, wears a black suit with black tie. he has earrings in both ears, bald, black goatee, brown eye brows, red tear shaped nose, green eye lids.

    Sandie is a round pink AM with live hands blue eyelids with lashes, large pink tear nose messy curley light brown hair. Brown glasses and brown eye brows. She wears a pink hoodie sweat shirt and a white T-shirt. Think midwestern house wife.

    The Girls all wore the same red "Jessica Rabbit" glittery clevage dresses and diamond necklaces. They were all small arm rod AM's and they all had teeth.

    I'm going to have to give the girls by number rather than name, since I can only remember the names for 2 and 3.

    1 Green Diamond AM, long brown hair pink small round nose pink eye lids.

    2(Paula) Lavendar oval AM green eye lids small pink nose, long blonde wavy hair.

    3 (Joey) round small pink AM, pink nose, grey glitter eye lids, very weird large frizzy hair she hides behind (and quite littereally mind you. She actually jumped out from behind her hair when she was revealed)

    4)green diamond (a lighter green than number one) purple eye lids, pink nose, long stright blonde hair.

    5 Pink Oval, short black curly hair. Red lids, pink nose.

    Basically they had similar facial features.
