    Okay... Ming was indeed a Muppet Peacock. i think he had real peacock tail feathers (much like Big bird has turkey feathers) By all means, add him... (he talked like Jimmy Durrante)

    Trash Gordon is Gordon as a superhero in a book. He could be added too.

    The "Back up singers" had no names, nor were they really back up singers. more like there to demonstrait beards and lack of them with no letter B. I'd say they were more like "Two Bearded AM's" if you want a really specific name.

    The Tree was CGI, the bathtub was a muppet.

    Stinky Cheese guys... so glad you asked! I was about to tell them to you..

    3 cheese guys from the planet gorgonzola... from screen left to right, I'll tell you about them.

    Left cheese: A large wheel of cheese with a red wax outside. he was horizontal (as in he was flat on top and bottom, and the round part was in the middle, with the roundness going horizontally) He had eyes and a nose (really hard to tell what kinds of eyes, but to my recallection oval and sleepy looking, his nose was a small circle same color as his wax skin) He had long arms which were probably made of wire with hands at the end, but no legs, and he hovered around.

    Middle cheese: Almost exactly like the first one, but orange/yellow wax for skin.

    Right cheese: The iconographic "Swiss cheese wedge"/// triangular. had eyes (no nose I think) and same arms as the other two, also hovered without legs.

    They were seen mostly from the back, but they did breiefly face the camera as they flew off the screen.

    Thanks Drtooth.
    Ming Peacock will be added.
    Trash Gordon will be added.
    The Stinky Cheese Guys will be added.

    The Tree will be booted.
    Should the Bathtub be added then?

    And if you could help answer the other questions from today's episode with Natalie Portman I'd thank you even more.

    I'd have to see the episode again tomorrow to give you the most accurate details, but I can tell you about the baker...

    He's a fat blue AM muppet with black/grey/white hair (meaning his hair is black with swirls of grey and white hairs... to give it a more authentic look) he also has a handlebar mustache with the same black grey white hair streaks. He has a small circular orange nose, and he wear the traditional baker smock and chef's hat. he also speaks with a bad, stereotypical French accent...

    O, zo vouz noticed zat too? Well, I'll wait till tomorrow for these descripts and ask again about the new ones from Episode 5.
    That's just what I'm calling them to know where I'm at during the season, since I don't know what the episode's real numbers are.

    While waiting for Drtooth or some other forum members to answer my previous questions from Episodes 4058 and 4060, here's a fresh batch of questions from Episode 4061 to keep us entertained throughout the weekend.

    1 If you could, please describe what Cinderella looked like, and if she was any different from the previous two characters of the same name who've appeared on Sesame Street.
    BTW: Didn't her voice sound kind of like Elizabeth's?
    2 If you could, please describe what Cinderella's Fairy Godmother looked like.
    Was this a human character?
    If so, please provide the name of the actress who played this role.
    BTW: Didn't her voice sound kinda like Andrea Martin's?
    3 What was the animal named Gertrude that Gina was tending to when she appeared during the story segment at the beginning of the episode?
    4 Was Old King Cole's Servant from the JTE segment an animated character or a real Muppet character?
    If it was a Muppet character, then please provide a descript of what he looked like.
    5 Were the Bicycle and Helmet from Elmo's World animated characters or real Muppet characters?
    If they were real Muppet characters, then please provide a descript of what they looked like.
    6 If you could, please provide descripts of what the Rotten Bananas and Space Monkey from Trash Gordon looked like.

    Bonus Question: Should the following be counted/added to my Muppet Listings.
    Cinderella #3.
    Cinderella #3's Fairy Godmother.
    Old King Cole's Servant.
    The Bicycle.
    The Helmet.

    Okay... something odd happened. instead of showing the episode with the Baker Butcher and Candlestick maker, they showed the one about Curly disliking porridge instead. So, I'll have to wait some more for that episode. Sorry.

    As for today's episode:

    Cinderella. I Pinkish, lavendarish AM with a big round face, live hands (in other words, the performers wore gloves to similate real hands) sleepy eyes (sort of like Big Bird's, but smaller and flatter), an orangeish yellow nose, long blonde hair and she wore peasant clothing, dirty and dingy. (it was sort of German looking peasant clothing, brown and white, with a handkerchief in her hair) She turned into a chicken, different from the normal SS chicken. Like a smaller white chicken with large eyes, still wearing the peasant clothing. As she turned back, she wore a Pink Dress and tiara.

    Fairy Godmother was a human, portayed by acress Andrea Martin (famous for being Wanda the word fairy and the cartoon voices on Elmo's world). She wore a tiara, a yellow dress shirt, and a black dress. She had large pink Butterfly like wings. Her wand wass sort of like a long staff with a circle at the top, it was "gold" and covered with glitter.

    Gertrude I don't remember (I must have been out of the room at the time)

    The Assistant to Ernie King Cole was a lavandar AM (different from cinderella... he had rod hands, I believe). He had the same sleepy eys most AM's have, and he wore royal clothing (all poofy). he had a page boy hair cut (blondish... golden) and a large red nose... shaped like an ice cream cone (with the ice cream on it) upside down.

    The Bike was a small bike puppet (controoled with rods). It was a girl's bike, and judt under the handle bars she had Muppet eyes and a mouth (controlled by the rods) this "head" was pink"

    The Bike Helmet was a blue bike helmet with eyes on the front, and a mouth coming out of the bottom (where the head goes)... he hovered without legs nor arms.

    The Space monkey was a reused Monkey puppet (Think davey and Joey).

    There were 2 sets of rotten bananas (I saw them briefly, but I can describe as best I can). They weren't single bananas, but rather monster like creatures made up of a bunch of bananas.

    One was verticle (like a bunch ob bananas standing up) with muppet eyes and a little mouth under them.

    The other was horizontal, bananas laying on the floor. He had eyes in the middle of one banana, and his mouth was a banana that lifted up and down, like a mouth opening and cloising. Like if Pac Man was made out of Bananas.

    Both of them were a grimey looking swirl of green, brown and black.

    Thanks Drtooth. Since I haven't seen Episode 4059, Curly Dislikes Porridge, I can't ask about characters from that episode cause I don't have any to ask about. So just keep those under your hat for the time being. As for the characters from Episode 4060, I can wait as well especially since these episodes will get repeated during the summer.

    As for the characters from Episode 4061...
    Andrea Martin is more famous for something that goes further back in TV land chronology. She was one of the stars of Second City TV (SCTV) Toronto. It was this show that gave us the great talents of John Candy, Dave Thomas, Joe Flaherty, Rick Moranis, Martin Short, and Catherine O'Hara, who have been all involved with the Muppets in some way or another.
    OK, crunch time.
    Should I add the following entries to the Muppet Listings?
    The Bicycle.
    The Helmet or the Bicycle Helmet.
    The Rotten Bananas.
    The Space Monkey.
    Old King Cole's Servant.
    Cinderella (SS, from Episode 4061).
    Cinderella's Fairy Godmother (SS, from Episode 4061).
    Please answer Yes or No for each of the characters listed above. Oh, and if you get a chance to see this one again, Gertrude appeared with Gina when she was magically transported onto the Street after Zoe's first attempt to change Cinderella back from a chicken into her old self.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Gertrude... I remeber now... She was a regular Sheep Muppet.

    Anyway, I meant to speak of Andrea Martin in her roles on SS. I know she even appeared during the "Put Down the Duckie" celebrity version in that weird 1950's costume she wears.

    Anyway, It's kind of funny. Her take on the Fairy Godmother was ironically not like her Wanda the Wortd Fairy character on SS, but more like the Fairy she voices (also named Wanda) on Fairly Odd parents. She even had semi-matching clothes. She just needed a pink wig, burt she had black hair in the role.

    The Porridge episode, well... There wasn't really many new characters to metnion...

    The Fairy tale chorus- The Current large lavandar Big Bad Wolf, the 3 little pigs hand puppets (not like the more animal looking ones) Little Bo peep (?) who looked just like I described Cinderella, only with the crook a large little bo peep bell dress, and a bonnet, and Little red riding hood, a green AM with a large red cloak and hood. I think she had a pink nose and black hair.

    The Worms from Trash Gordon: Like Slimey, only different colors... like a green one, a yellow one, one that was the same as slimey, and I think a Blue one.

    Plus there was a baby cookie monster, which looked like a smaller chubbier version of cookie. Wearing a baby bonnet!

    Aw, me bet he look adorable. Cookie one of me favorite characters, funny in same way as Animal.
    Anyway, I'll wait till I see the episode before asking about its characters. As or the ones from 4061, should all of them be added?
    Waiting for a Yay or Nay answer to know for sure.

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Axtually, Cookie monster revealed his REAL ORIGINAL NAME during the song...


    Don't know how accurate it is to the SS canon, but it's an interresting bit of trivia...
  11. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    He always be Cookie Monster to me. Well, if there are no objections, I'll add the characters from Episode 4061. Are there any objections to adding these characters? Speak now or forever hold your peace.

    I'd like to help you on this list, too!

    I don't think "The Clown" should be added to the list. She was just a filler, when Big Bird needed a clue to where he was going. Ditto to "B.B. King's Back-Up Singers". They sang as much as Bert, Big Bird, Baby Bear, and Benny Rabbit, and were just two A.M.s needed because a verse mentioned: "we couldn't have a beard".

    The Three Men In a Tub can be in a group, but each member is identified, like your list of "The Count's Classmates". Here's the descripts:

    BUTCHER--Pointy green AM with lavendar eyelids on his vertically oval eyes, light blue nose, and short brown hair. He wore a white butcher's hat and apron, and a vertically striped blue and white shirt. He wore a string of sausages around his neck.

    BAKER--Fat blue AM in a baker's outfit. He has scraggly gray hair, a moustache, a green nose, and orange eyelids.

    CANDLESTICK MAKER--Short lavendar AM with fuzzy brown hair and beard. He has an orange nose and blue eyelids on his vertically oval eyes. Not sure on his outfit, but he looked a bit like a colonial candlestick maker. Can't help you much there.

    Speaking of "group listings", you may want to consider a list of "Elmo's World" Muppets, since there are many "object" Muppets built for it. Example:
    "Elmo's World: The Bicycle"
    "Elmo's World: The Helmet"

    The Muppets in Jimmy's Family are as follows:
    JIMMY--small pink AM with short dark brown hair and pink eyelids. His black pupils are a bit bigger than normal Muppets, and I think he wears white and orange pajamas.
    JIMMY'S FATHER--tall orange AM with short black hair, blue oval nose, pink eyelids, a white shirt, and red sweater.
    JIMMY'S MOTHER--short lavendar AM with a green nose, sleepy eyelids with lashes, and curly light brown hair. Not sure about her clothing, though.

    Ah my friend MuppetDude, don't you know? You're already helping me immensely with my list, with all the work you've given me so far on TOTBP and TCT which I'm still waiting for the background toys/characters to finish off that production. But I know I can count on you because of that work you've provided me already.

    Now that I have descripts, the 3 Men in a Tub will be added individually, along with Jimmy's Family, the new Cinderella characters, Old King Cole's Servant, and the characters from Trash Gordon.

    MuppetDude, you suggested placing the Elmo's World characters under a uniform group heading. Well, I was anticipating this suggestion based on all those object Muppets that have appeared on EW, just bracing about the fact that now I'll have to watch EW. But then again, I want this thing to be as complete as possible... so the Bathtub, Bicycle and Helmet will all go there, along with the Black Leather Jacket.
    And now a few questions/clarifications.
    1 Drtooth said that the clown from JTBB was a Muppet character, so don't you think it should be added? Just looking for an answer here, after all some of the entries in my listing are one-timers like Xavier and the Genie of the Toothpaste.
    2 In the interest of knocking off as many AM's to reduce the overall number remaining, don't you think that the two singers from the BB King song should be added? If not as his backup singers, then would a denomination like "Bearded Singers" or "Beard-Losing Singers" apt for such an entry?
    3 How is the name of Trash Gordon's first foes spelled: "Mudongs", "Muddongs", or "Mudlongs"?
    Please post ASAP and thanks for all your help everybody.

    Another week, and more character questions for the forum members to help me with.

    OK, please provide descripts to the best of your knowledge of the following characters from Episode 4062, the Furry Red Monster Parade.
    1 Elmo's World: Big Foot.
    2 The Pizza, from Trash Gordon.
    3 The characters that showed up during the parade after Big Bird joined the marchers.
    4 The characters on the TV the Count was watching, from the spoof show Six Feet Under.
    Please post here and thanks for your help.
    Hope to hear from you guys soon, and have a good day.
  15. Drtooth

    The other characters in the parade.... a bunch of human kids, 3 human adults (one an African American Poliace officer), Alan, Gladys, Mel and Narf from Monster Clubhouse, Chickens, I think a penguin, a sheep, and a Muppet tomato.

    The foot was actually an actual human foot (I think Joey Mazarino's) photographed on a blue screen, and compiled into Elmo's world to be large (slightly bigger than Elmo... Elmo was able to sit on it at the finalie).

    The Pizza was pretty much what you'd expect, a realistic looking Pizza with Muppet eyes, and a mouth (both on the top half of the pizza). he was covered in pepperoni slices, and I couldn't see any anchovies (unlike what Oscar described).

    I think the characters from "Six Feet Under" were only visable from the legs down, under a table. There were 3 pairs of feet. Two orange furry ones, a pair of green furry ones, and a pair of smooth pink ones. Sorry If I didn't have much help with this, Maria was on NBC's Today show explaining her new kids book as the show was on, and I was switching back and forth.

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Rully? Didn't know about that. So what was her book about?
    Don't worry about the descripts, just be on the look out for the characters when/if Episode 4062 should be repeated on your PBS station before Episode 4063 tomorrow.
    OK, should the "Big Foot" be added?
    Should the pizza from Trash Gordon be added? And under what name, "The Pizza" or "The Pepperoni and Anchovy Pizza" or "The Pepperoni and Anchovy Pizza with Extra Garlic"?
    LMK and we'll talk again. Hope to hear from you soon and have a good day.

    Sonia's book is called "No Dog's Allowed" and it's based on her experiances going to the beach with all her relitives as a kid. She's got a second book (she didn't go into much detail about it, though) called "Box of Kittens" (or something like that)

    I have a few questions about Joe Hundred Guy and TriangleBob Trianglepants(since I havent seen them yet)...

    Are they Muppets? If so,describe what they look like,and who performs them.
  19. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    No one's seen them yet. And rest assured, once I do see them, I will describe them in detail for all... :p :(
  20. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Okay, here's today's descriptions:

    A woman named Gladys: A fat blue AM with a small pink nose, and sleepy eyes, has a golden blonde haircut (I can't describe it, but sort of flat) and a Pink dress

    The chickens: 2 larger Brown AM chickens and a smaller white chicken (same one they used for Cinderella) with blonde beehive hair cuts.

    The lizard: A small cartoony, muppet chamelion with bug eyes on either side of his head and a curly tale. A rod puppet, very small.

    Joe Hundered guy: Tall orange AM with live hands, similar to Guy Smiley, actually more like Monty. he has a top row of teeth, and a weird poofy curly hair cut (dark brown in color) he has sleepy eyes with green eyelids, and a small triangular nose, pinkish. He wears a long sleeve dress shirt with a loud red plaid tie.

    The Butler: Fat Blue AM with live hands, has sleepy eyes, pink eyelids, if I'm not mistaken. Has a red nose the shape of an upside down cone with a ball at the end of it. Wears wire frame glasses, and is male pattern balding, light grey hair on the sides, but not on top. He wears a blackish grey butler suit and blue tie.
