    Dispite me not having seen it yet, I can tell you what Ovejita looks like. She's like the refualr SS lambs, only she's purple, has s tuft of hair at the top of her head with a bow tied around it. She also has blue eyelids.

    Yes it looks like it's going to be a great year for Sesame Street. I just have one question though. Even though that it is possible that it won't happen, do you think that the new clay segments with :p & :( will replace the Muppet versions?
  4. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Mmm... No, I don't think so. Remember, the claymation versions were made for a separate international production/release. The reason they're being inserted now is to give the American public a chance to see these too. Plus, it's the one claymation segment in the last five years I can actually understand and follow... Much better than the other stuff they've had. But this should rully be opened to discussion either in the Thoughts on Season 39 thread or in a thread of its own. Hope this helps.

    Here we go... Characters for the first episode of the new season:

    The Indiana Jones parodies-

    Minnesota Mel
    - The one that bears the most resemblance to Indie... Tall yellow live hands AM, blue green eyelids, orange tear shaped nose, small black eye brows, a black mole on his right cheek, brown hair, Brown Fedora and jacket with white shirt (exactly what Indie ears, and similar to what Telly wears)

    Wyoming Walt- Lavander Live hands AM, green triangle nose, brown eye lids, brown eye brows, brown mustache. Wears an aviator's cap and goggles, brown aviator's coat with light brown fleace shoulder pads.

    Virginia Virginia- Hot pink live hands AM curley brown hair, eye lash lids, small round purple nose, beige redora and jacket.

    The Boulder- a CGI character, brown in color, with big white eyes. His brows seem to be cracked out of the rock, and his mouth is cracked inwards to the rock.

    Snake- the yellow snake with orange diamonds. small visable fands, a forked tounge sticking out... he had big brown eyebrows.

    Prop- The softener bottle (I felt this one was of note)- basically a blue standard bottle with the words "Fluffy Monkey" on it, with a cap that looks like a monkey's head carved out of rock.

    Elmo's World-

    The Drummers... there were 5 of them

    The Lead drummer was a pumpkin AM, brown curley hair, ele lash lids, small orang circular nose.

    then there was a Fat Blue one with a bulbous orang nose

    2 light lavendar ones, a male with brown hair and a green nose and a female one that looked similar, with longer hair, eye lash lids, and a small pink nose

    And the little drummer, a small purple AM whose hat covered his eyes, he had a round red nose and a black mustache.

    They all wore the same navy blue parade drummer outfits, with those tall fuzzy hats and white button stripes on their coats.

    The Bongos, conjoined, a Male on the left, and a female on the right. The male had standard muppet eyes with brown lids, the female had female muppet eyes with the same color lids. They were vertically striped with brown and light brown stripes. The stripes covered half their faces, and they had a reverse order on each other's faces. Ei, the male had a Brown stripe on his right side, and the female had it on her left.

    You really lucked out this year, having the new episode air ahead of me in your area. That way, I can make a list (I have a terrible memory). It'll be on the way at 11....
  8. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Heh... That's not lucking out. That's the way my two PBS affiliates, national and local are set up. When Daylight Savings Time (DST) is in effect, both my national PBS channel (WMTJ Channel 3) and local station (WIPR Channel 6) air Sesame at 8 AM. When DST is gone in late September/late October, then Channel 6 airs at 8 and Channel 3 at 9. That's the way it's been for the last few years. But you know I truly appreciate all your help with this buddy.

    Firstly, Would you consider the Socks from "Exploring in the Closet" as muppet characters? It was the same version from the early 90's, and they look more like something from the prop department than true muppets. The Socks were basically purple socks with blue toes and googly eyes attatched. One had a brown unibrow.

    And secondly, from the main story line-

    AM Store Customer- Pumpkin AM, green lids , purple tear shaped nose, brown eye brows and goatee. Wearing brown slacks, a beige sweater vest and a white shirt.

    Fariy Shoe Person- He was wearing a beige suit with matching pants, and an off white, almost greenish hued dress shirt. he had a bow tie that looked like ribbons (like a bow tie was shredded- I'm sure there's a specific name for it) that was a green grey, he wore black dress shoes (oddly enough, you only saw the shoe fairy's shoes in one shot). he had wings that were feathery, like Angel wings, but shaped more like Butterfly wings. And his horn of choice was a brass bugle.

    Well... As for the socks, I don't have them previously listed, unless they're part of the Sock Quartet from Elmo in Grouchland, or will be part of the sock quintet from tomorrow's episode, 4163: Sock Chaos at the Laundromat. Remember, the reason I ask is because I rully don't know about some of these at times and depend on the help forum friends like you provide. As for props, you did bring up the Fluffy Monkey Fabric Softener Bottle from yesterday's episode for consideration, and there are certain toys/dolls that are considered as part of the Muppet Universe, not to mention the countless inanimate objects that have either been Muppetized or associated as characters like the Hatrack from TMS.

    Just a bit of explanation. Again, thanks for all your help.

    The Purple Polka-Dotted Sock
    The Argyled Sock

    Okay... here are the cahracters...

    There was an orange Monster live hand muppet with yellow horns a circular head, a small round green nose and bushy black eyebrows. (He sang the Laundromat song with Chris)

    The uppity Customer- Round Lavendar live hand AM, blue eyelids, small round red nose, she had light brown hair in a hairstyle I can't really discribe (sort of like a pony tale) with a yellow hair band on her head. she wore a yello shirt under a tan sweater

    Now the socks- They all resemble sock puppets, but with jaws stiffened undernieth by foam. Sort of like a cross bread between a muppet and a sock puppet, actually.

    Polkadot- He had purple spots on a pink base with purple eyelids... he had a floppy overhang of the toe portion past his face, which served as a large nose. He sort of reminded me of Gonzo, as for the shape of his head and the shape of his eye lids.

    Argyle- Light Green Argyle Print sock (with darker green, black, and white diamond prints)- He had a part of the toe portion shaped like a large round snub nose in the middle of his face. He had orange eye lids, and wore golden wire frame glasses (with no glas).

    Gym Sock- A White sock with three blue rings around where his "neck" would be. He had green eye lids, wore a red and white sweat band on his head, and he had a large cartoonish nose made out of the toe portion. He had a mustache, and a slight chin jutting out of his bottom jaw.

    Red Sock- A red sock with a white toe and a white heal (which served as a Baseball cap of sorts), he had blue eye lids. He looked more like a sock than the others, no nose... looked more like a fraggle.

    Baby Sock- A white sock with a large pink pom pom on its head. It had purple eye lids, and a ruffle on its "neck" It had a single tooth on its bottom jaw. Its design reminds me of Pepe's head. Same shape of his face and jaw. The tooth was even on the same side.

    Was it just me or did the Socks almost look like real socks, because I was almost fool by how the socks looked ?

    Jack be Nimble - Pumpkin AM, Tossled blond hair, red eye lids, larger round nose. He wore an off white nightgown and cap with a tassel on the cap. It was striped vertically with a slightly darker off white shade.

    The Boot- A Brown Hiking boot with eyes with brown lids on the top of the tongue, and his mouth was an open flap made out of the top of the toe part.

    First off, The Preschool Musical thing was too frantic... I'll give you ALL the character descriptions, including the unnamed one a little later (when I can see them on Youtube and pause). I can tell you though, they are all the smallest AM's.

    But here are 3 of them..

    Mariella- small lavendar AM with a pink nose and green eyelash lids. She had long brown hair, and wore a light blue dress.

    Trey- small dark green AM with matching green triangular nose and eye lids. He had dirty blonde hair that was sort of messed up (I don't know exact hair style names). he wore a Brown Varsity jacket with some Logo that was red with white letters on his right side (I didn't get a good look at the letters, though) and he wore a horizontal orange and red striped shirt.

    The Gunea Pig- A light brown gunea pig puppet with orange lids and a small pink nose... though, in the opening shot it was either a live hamster or a toy of one that looked more realistic.

    The bugs- The Fire Fly was a CGI that was done in muppet style. You only saw a glowing light until he was in the jar, where he was brown, had large black eyes, and a yellow or tan underbelly.

    The Bee- A new puppet, it looks like. It had a black fuzzy head with eyes with black lids (it was almost hard to tell), and a small upsidedown triangular yello nose. He had a yellow body, and a yellow/black striped hind quarter.

    There was also a chicken that was excersizing with Big Bird and Gina... but it was the SuperChicken puppet without the costume on it.

    Hi... From today's episode.
    Episode 4166: Max the Magician.
    Max the Magician, who portrayed him?
    Also, should the spotlight from the end sponsor presentation be counted?

    And further help with the cast from Preschool Musical would be welcome, thanks.
