    Because no one posted it yet, THIS was the episode with Biff and Sully in the background. There was also a Honker... I hope that doesn't mean they're getting phased out.

    Plus, there was a little blue monster with a little pink nose and horns... that wasn't an old character, was it?

    No that's a new AM monster.

    Doubt that the Honkers are being phased out. They've appeared much more recently and frequently than Biff/Sully - plus it simply makes good sense to keep around characters that can be played by any available Muppeteer.

    I haven't seen one all season, and they didn't even bother to add honking noises in post production with the rest of the SFX. That's what kinda worried me.

    If i was a puppeteer on the SST set and got the task of performing the cow in today's episode, i would have been WAY too tempted to get into the "gem spirit" and perform her with a Southern accent and imploring the others to "call me Natalie"

    Well, today's episode was the long awaited cameo of Biff and Sully (I think 'Jack be Nimble' first aired today, unless I missed it when it aired before), that was neat. It's too bad Biff hadn't been given a line though. After all, Jerry could have at least looped in his voice. Still, it was good to see them.

    If you listen very close you can hear Biff every now and then say something. It's kinda hard but still cool to hear Biff still sound like he does.

    Okay, I FINALLY found out what the hidden Gem of the dull Camping episode was... apparently, Elmo and Chris hum a bit of the "Willie Wimple" song at the very beginning. That's from Muppet Wiki... now, if anyone has made these into clips yet, I would like to see someone post them.

    I'm actually working on a video compilation of these things, so if you want, I could upload just that part somewhere.

    EDIT: In today's "Inspector Four" episode, Chris sings Joe Raposo's "Peanut Butter" song as he makes some sandwiches.

    Actually, I was going to ask you on Youtube if you were planning on it.

    is ther a gem compilation on yutube?

    I'm working on one, but it won't be up until all the episodes air so it can be complete. There are images of them at Muppet Wiki.

    Yeah. I've noticed that too. It seems like Chris used to watch 'Sesame Street' in the golden age before he was on the show. :)

    For Drtooh (anyone one else who didn't catch it), here's a video clip of the hidden gem from #4202.

    Heh... no wonder I missed it. I wouldn't even have known it was SUPPOSED to be that song until someone said that it was.

    *Earpiercing shriek shatters the computer screens.

    What episode was this? Jerry Nelson Covant members rejoice!
    Still have to wait till April/May for Season 40 episodes... But still... *Dies happy now.

    This was in the episode where Big Bird sprains his wing. Episode 4206.

    Not only are their cameos by Jerry and Sherlock, but also by Herry Monster... and part of the episode revolves around the Count running Hooper's Store (very poorly, at that). Funny stuff!

    Does Big Bird taking Rollerskating back up, since he hasn't done that since the 80's, count?
  19. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter New Member

    He actually rollerskated back in 2000, so I don't know if it would count.

    He was also rollerskating last season.
