    Well the episode with Felix the Grouch was on 123 Sesame, not Unpaved but someone with a VCR connection could indeed tape the episode when it reruns on Noggin and then submit the picture.
    Also, Mahna Mahna and Bip Bippadotta were two completely different characters differenciated only by the fact that Bip was the Sesame version and he wore a big pair of sungalsses over his eyes. Hope this helps.

    yes we are going to use it, we are very glad with it, but BlueFrackle is on holiday now. He asked me by the way to send us the whole pic of Twohead with that human, cause he wanted to edit the pic himself.

    Actually, I can't.. I made the pic by fusing two frames of the same clip together, because their horns were cropped off durning the scene. plus, I had to digitally remove the annoying PBS Logo from the bottom, or the picture would have to be cropped, and their heads would not look connected.

    I can give the picture I used that is UNedited, if you want, but the PBS logo would have to be cropped out, causing their heads to be disconnected.

    HOWEVER... maybe by the end of the semester, I can try to get you a pic of at least Leonard the Wolf..

    I have taped the episode, but I could not get the Big Bad Wolf or the three pigs, since they move too fast.

    1 OK, send us the pic. We'll see what we can do.

    2 That would be great. The wolfs are one of my favourite puppets at SStreet

    Tommie & BlueFrackle, I think I know some more facts about the old characters: Lefty, Sherlock Hemlock, Harvey Kneeslapper and Sam the Robot:

    -appeared on the skits where he sells things to Ernie
    -is played by Carroll Spinney for the sketch where he sends the letter U to Ernie
    -also appeared with Accomplice that he reads the alphabet message from Accomplice
    -is a green Anything Muppet in a white coat and a black hat

    -first appeared on the sketch where parts of Ernie's chicken-and-salad sandwich are missing
    -appeared on Mysterious Theater skits with host Vincent Twice, Vincent Twice
    Famous Song: X Marks the Spot

    -disappeared from Sesame Street, because some people didn't like him, was a 1-note joker and the laughing was too hard for Frank Oz's voice

    -first appeared on the street segment from 1972 where he meets Gordon and Susan slowly
    -appeared very shortly on episode #536 where he greets Luis slowly

    And the only fact I know about Herry Monster is that he first appeared on Sesame Street with a furry nose, then he changes it into a regular blue nose and soonly turned purple after his blue nose looked the same color of his fur.

    Hope these help.

    To the best of my knowledge, there were four versions. One was Frieda, who sang "We've Got A Brand New Baby" and performed by Fran Brill. The song's on the SS Lyrics Archive.

    Another was Mona, Telly's sister.

    Third was Juliet, Telly's friend who had a vivid imagination.

    Fourth is Ingrid.

    These monsters didn't precisely debut in this order.

    Frieda, Mona, and Juliet all looked exactly like Ingrid, except that they had blue eyelashes and a yellow nose.

    Drtooth, even if the SSE already has the bios of those characters which I highly dobut, you should post the bios of those characters here in the Encyclopedia's thread for their benefit and the further education of all us other forum members. Thanks for the help, hope you go ahead and post the bios of the new characters, and have a good day.

    Re: Guys,

    Mona, Inrid, et. al. are designed on what looks like the Fat Blue Anything Muppet, only it is more sky blue rather than the usual navy blue.

    Thijs Well-Known Member

    hey Dr. Tooth. We haven't any of these pics. Send them if you want. Maybe our inbox is full, then send it to Thijs.vanDomburg@student.uva.nl

    greetings Thijs

    Re: Re: Guys,

    One more thing I should mention if this description doesn't suffice: the monster in question also appears in the background in Cookie Monster's "Me Gotta Be Blue", found on the "I'm Glad I'm Me".

    Tommy, for some reason I think that you asked about Baby Bear's baby brother. Don't know if that point got solved by now or not, but here's the info about that specific character. It wasn't Baby Bear's baby brother, but in fact it was his baby cousin named Oliver. Hope this helps and have a good day.
