Sesame Street Season 35 New Characters

Discussion in 'Classic Sesame Street' started by The Count, Apr 6, 2004.

  1. The Count Moderator

    Greetings from the Count! Thought I'd start up a thread asking about the new characters from the new season of Sesame Street to help further along my Muppet Listings, given that I have blind batty eyes and you guys might be able to help me out better than most others.

    So, let's get started.
    Episode 1: The Street we Live on.
    1 Besides Cookie, Zoe, Grover, and Elmo...
    What were the other monsters that took part in the Monsters Parade?
    2 During the end song, who was the character that sang the line: "This is the place where my roots took root."
    It sounded like a Kevin Clash character.
    If you could, please provide a name and full description of what this character looked like.
    3 Should Ming Peacock from the Global Grover segment be counted?
    Was this a real Muppet character or just an animated character?
    If you could, please provide a description of what this one looked like.
    4 Should the Nursery Rhyme characters that appeared in Journey to Ernie be counted?
    Are these real Muppet characters or just Animated characters?

    Episode 2: The Best Pet in the World.
    5 Who were all the characters that showed up during the song with B.B. King?
    There were some that were kind of back-up for B.B. King when he sang that without the letter B we wouldn't have a beard.
    Please provide names and descriptions of these obscure characters.
    6 Should Trash Gordon be counted as a new character?
    If you could, please post descripts of what he looked like.
    7 Should the Mudongs (if that's correctly spelled) be counted as new characters?
    If you could, please provide descripts of what they looked like.

    Will post more on an episode-by-episode basis. Thanks for all your help and have a great night.

    "1 Besides Cookie, Zoe, Grover, and Elmo...
    What were the other monsters that took part in the Monsters Parade?"

    HERRY!!!!(Or is it Harry? Not postive on spelling) :( Also the 4 monster clubhouse monsters. Names are Mel, Narf, and uh... I forgot the other two.

    "2 During the end song, who was the character that sang the line: "This is the place where my roots took root."
    It sounded like a Kevin Clash character.
    If you could, please provide a name and full description of what this character looked like."

    It was the tree with a cgi face. Tree's don't have names. It wasn't a muppet or anything... It was a skinny little tree but it had a little cgi mouth and eyes.

    "3 Should Ming Peacock from the Global Grover segment be counted?
    Was this a real Muppet character or just an animated character?
    If you could, please provide a description of what this one looked like."

    Yes it was a muppet. Description? It was blue with a yellow beak. And it had kinda a greenish brown peacock tail thingy.

    "4 Should the Nursery Rhyme characters that appeared in Journey to Ernie be counted?
    Are these real Muppet characters or just Animated characters?"

    They were animations, not muppets.

    Havent seen 2 yet (my PBS is a day behind) so can't help there.
    I can help with the made for DVD Whats The Name Of That Song? 35th special if you have questions about characters on that.
  3. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    There were only 3 of the Monster clubhouse monsters, Narf, Mel, and Google.

    The tree, as Cheebo said was a short CGI gag, and I don't think it was ment to be a character.

    I'm not too sure, but the muppet Peacock may have had actual peacock feathers for it's extravagant tail.

    So far, the only other new character I spotted was an anything muppet clown. I couldn't really discribe it to you, becasue it moves by so fast, I got a brief glipse at it.....
  4. The Count Moderator

    Thanks guys. Cheebo, don't feel to bad about not watching the second episode yet, just so long as forum members come in here and help me out during the course of the season and we get all of them answered and sorted out. That, my friend is the main thing.

    1 Monsters Parade.
    So far we have Cookie, Zoe, Herry, Mel, Narf, Phoebe, Grover, and Elmo at the end.
    That's only 8 Monsters! Who were the other two monsters seen in the parade?
    2 As soon as you can, please answer the questions posted from each episode in this thread, so that we can get them all answered and then added to the listings.
    3 Drtooth, even you saw it just briefly, would that clown from the JTBB segment count? What I mean is was it an actual Muppet character or just a rudimentary CGI animated character?

    Oh, and if you guys spot any other characters that you think should be added, please come in here and say their names and give a good description of what they look like so I'll be a bit familiar with them in the future.
    Thanks and hope to get replies from you guys on the remaining questions soon.
  5. floydnjanicefan Active Member

    The other two monsters in the parade were Telly and Rosita.
  6. Cheebo New Member

    The clown was a muppet. Also it was purple and its costume was yellow if I remember right.
    Now I saw #2 I can help!

    "Episode 2: The Best Pet in the World.
    5 Who were all the characters that showed up during the song with B.B. King?
    There were some that were kind of back-up for B.B. King when he sang that without the letter B we wouldn't have a beard.
    Please provide names and descriptions of these obscure characters."

    Bert, Baby Bear, Big Bird, & Two Anything Muppets with removable beards(no names). One was purple with brown hair/beard and the other was fat, blue, and with black hair(bald spot on top) and black hair.

    "6 Should Trash Gordon be counted as a new character?
    If you could, please post descripts of what he looked like."

    I don't think so. It was pretty much just Gordon dressed up and pretending to be a Super Hero. His suit was mostly yellow with some red and blue.

    "7 Should the Mudongs (if that's correctly spelled) be counted as new characters?
    If you could, please provide descripts of what they looked like."

    Yes, since they were muppets. They looked a bit like a grouch. One was gray and one was tan. Both had brown furry snots.
  7. Count, if you need it Google's name used to be Mooba and Pheobe's name used to be Groogle.
  8. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    The clown was a Muppet, and it appeared just before Ernie entered the cartoon world. If I didn't have the early moring class today, I would have seen it again, but it was very brief. it honked a bike horn in it's hand, and it ran away. It had been on screen no longer than 2 seconds.


    About the Mudlongs... from what I saw, they have snouts like little trumpets, furry. I think one was a muddy dull brown, and the other was a muddy gray!
  9. The Count Moderator

    OK, thanks guys, this is great. So far we have from Season 35...
    Ming Peacock, to be added to ML 11.
    Trash Gordon, to be added to ML 11.
    (Reason being that it's a superhero-like character and that counts for a second identity character distinct from Gordon himself.)
    The Mudlongs, is this the correct spelling or is it "Mudongs"?
    These will be added to ML 11 as well.
    The Clown, is this the one that kept swinging by past Ernie? And do you think it would be best to add it under this heading?
    B.B. King's Backup Singers, do you think this to be the best way to add these two as an entry in my ML?
    Well, hope to hear from you guys soon.

    PS: Philo and Gunge, where did you get the names "Mooba" and "Groogle" from? In what sketch did these characters appear named as such? Was it on Sesame Street or some other Henson production? If they were named so on another JHC production, then which? And did their appearance differ from their Monster Clubhouse appearances? If so, please enlighten me to these differences.
    Hope to hear from you soon.
  10. They were called these names during their debut in season 32 in the Monster Clubhouse segmetns, the names changed for some odd reason.
  11. The Count Moderator

    Thanks Philo and Gunge. What were these segments like? And did the two characters differ at all between those Season 32 segments and the Season 33 segments?
    BTW: Cheebo, if there are any characters on the What's the Name of that Song DVD not included in my Muppet Listings 10.0, then yes I'd be interested in any and all info you can provide regarding those characters.
    Thanks and I'll post again tomorrow.
  12. No, their names were just re-dubbed.
  13. The Count Moderator

    Well, thanks for the info. If I had just passively seen the Season 32 episodes, I would've thought that these were two different characters. So should I keep them listed as "Google" and "Phoebe" respectively? Or should these be changed to their original names?
    Also, wanted to ask if you thought the Bathtub character from Elmo's World in Season 35 Episode 2 should be listed. Was this a Muppet character or an animated character? And should it be included in the listings?
    All help's welcome and I look forward to tomorrow's episode if it's a new one.
  14. wwfpooh New Member

    Count the clown was a muppet but there also was the two-headed monster dressed like a clown who only confused ernie and there was one flying out of a cannon to give enie clues each time, but she was animated, and as for the bathtub it looked muppetry with a few cgi attachments (ie the face).
  15. Cheebo New Member

    Can I have a link to ML 10?
  16. The Count Moderator

    Well, I'd like some more info regarding a descript of this Muppety clown from JTBB.
    1 Do you guys think it would be fair in adding it as an entry under the heading "The Clown"?
    2 Do you guys think it would be just adding an entry for the two Anything Muppets from the B.B. King song under the heading "B.B. King's Backup Singers"?
    3 Cheebo, don't have a link to the thread, but you can easily find it in the Classic Muppets section of this forum.
    Hope to hear from you guys soon.
  17. The Count Moderator

    OK, I'm streamlining this in order to get some definitive answers and know whether or not to add the following to the listings.

    1 Ming Peacock, Muppet character right?
    If so, she'll be added.
    2 Trash Gordon, Gordon as a superhero character right?
    If so, then he'll be added.
    3 If you could, please describe what this Muppet clown character from Journey to Big Bird looked like.
    Do you guys agree that it should be added as an entry as "The Clown"?
    4 Were there no names for the two Anything Muppets who sang backup for BB King?
    Do you guys agree that these two should be added as an entry as "BB King's Backup Singers"?
    5 The Tree from The Street We Live On, and the Bathtub from Elmo's World.
    Are these Muppet characters or not?
    When you say that they had CGI attachments, what were these?
    Should they be added to my Muppet Listings or not?
    Should all characters from Elmo's World be stricken from the Muppet Listings?

    New Characters.
    6 What's the name of the actress who portrayed Natalie in episode 4060?
    If you could, please provide a descript of what she looked like.
    7 The Butcher, The Baker, and The Candlestick Maker.
    Should these be added under one single entry as "The Three Men in a Tub"?
    Or should they be added individually under their names or the group heading?
    If you could, please provide descripts of what these characters looked like.
    8 Jimmy's Family, from the song/segment with Hoots the Owl.
    If you could, please provide descripts of what the following characters looked like:
    Jimmy, Jimmy's Dad, and Jimmy's Mom.
    9 The Stinky Cheese Guys.
    If you could, please provide descripts of what these characters looked like.
    Please post your replies here. Thanks for your help and I hope to hear from you guys soon.

    Whenever anyone asks me if I've "seen" anything, it's always a half-hearted half-joking answer I give them.
    Cheebo, I'm visually handicapped and though I still have some sight left, it's not enough to discern images on either a TV or computer screen. That's why whenever it's something I want to know about, I always ask for help from someone by having it described to me. Yes I did watch the movie Star Wars Episode 1, but as I said above, I wasn't able to notice what the characters onscreen looked like. Just went with what my mind supplied me by the voices alone. That's why I thought Natalie in today's episode had a familiar voice, but couldn't place the actress herself.
    Again, go to my previous post and try to answer as many questions from the Season 35 character inquiries as you can to the best of your knowledge. Thanks and have a good day.
  20. Cheebo New Member

    Ooooh that is why you cant tell the differnce between animations and muppets. Sorry, I didn't know. I can't really help you yet on that episode since I am still a day behind I just got the one on Baby Bear & Curly Bear.
