    I've seen the segment today with "Joe Hundred" or whatever-his-name is, but then he said that his name was really something else. I don't know if this was his first appearance or if he appeared on the show before. Does anyone have anymore info on this character. He kind of looked like they used the Guy Smiley puppet and gave him a make-over or something.

    Hey guys, here's the list of characters I'd like described from Episode 4063.
    1 Joe Hundred Guy, oh wait you already did that one.
    2 The Announcer from Joe Hundred Guy, oh wait you did that one too.
    Was he dressed like a butler and would it be justified adding him to the listings as "The Butler"?
    3 Elmo's World: The Robin.
    4 Who's this character named Gladys of which you speak Drtooth? In what segment did she appear?
    5 Who is this lizard character you speak of Drtooth? In what segment did it appear?
    6 The animals that appeared at the Mail-It-Shop. I believe it was Gladys the Cow, a French-speaking sheep, and a pig.

    If there are any others I'm missing, then please inform me what their names were, what they looked like, and in what segments they appeared.
    Thanks for your help and have a good day.

    Okay, the woman named Gladys and the Lizard where at the begining in Elmo's dream. He said that a woman named Gladys, a lizard, and a tomato (a muppet tomato) joined him in dancing.

    My discriptions are a little fuzzy, since... to make it dream like, the edges of the screen were fuzzy...

    Anyway, Joe Hundred Guy's real name (I"m sorry I forgot to add this, Count) Is Georgie Bernbaum.

    So in a listing you could put something like Joe Hundred Guy/ Gerogie Bernbaum. I think you can call him the butler, but I guess he has a more spoecific name in the script or desgins of the character.

    I can't help you with the robin, but I'm guessing it's the same Robin from the old Robin williams skit. A small hand puppet bird with a red head and a realistic bird body, with a red breast, and the other feathers are brownish.

    Thanks Drtooth, missed out on the others who joined Elmo in his dream.
    Joe Hundred Guy will be added to the listings as is, Georgie Bernbaum his real name will be filed away in the Sesame Street real names trivia folder along with Sid and Bernie Liderkranse.
    The Butler will be added as is, though he might get a "from Joe Hundred Guy" attached to his designated entry.
    Any other character sto ask about? Like the ones that showed up during the song "Everything's Coming Up Noses"?

    Oh and the robin from the Robin Williams segment was a male character, the one from Elmo's World sounded female. Maybe that would make all the world of differrence, then again maybe not. Just keep an eye out for when they repeat this one tomorrow on your PBS station before airing the new episode.
    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    I'm pretty sure it's the same (or similar) puppet, only a different puppeteer.

    Anyway, the characters who appeared in the "Everything's coming up Noses" skit were all Am's, but human and Monster. There was ONE character that really stuck out. An Opera singer. Not only was it not an AM, but it's unlike any character I've ever seen on SS. More like a Muppet Show character, with all the detail.

    She's gonna be very hard to descibe. She was really fat, and thus had an abnormal Muppet head, Pink and very fat and buldgey, she had *(if I remember correctly) permanantly closed eyes with thick eyebrows. She also had the stereotypical "Opera singer" valkerie (sp?) garb. You know, metal clothing, metal breast plate, and a viking helmet, all metalic with large birdlike Wings coming out of the hat. Very odd character. She only appeared for a couple seconds (the part where Harvey sang about only one nose per person)

    I might add, unless someone else described this, at the end of the song, where Harvey's dissappointed there are no more glasses left, and orange AM (not like Joe Hundred guy, more like the chinless type) with a Groucho Marx nose and glasses on the back of his head comes up, and Harvey takes them and puts them on his face.
  6. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Why would Harvey be upset there were no more Groucho glasses? And what was the importance of this other AM coming in and delivering an extra pair? Guess I just go by the dialogue I hear and tend not to pay attention to the visuals that are going on since I can't see them anyway.
    Well... here's the current crop of new characters to be added.
    The Butler, from Joe Hundred Guy.
    Joe Hundred Guy.
    Gertrude the Sheep.
    World: The Robin.
    Elmo's World: The Big Foot.
    The Pizza.
    Should that last one be changed to "The Pepperoni and Anchovy Pizza", or "The Pepperoni and Anchovy Pizza with Extra Garlic"?
    Hope to hear from you soon, and I'll hopefully have more tomorrow.

    OHHH>>> the skit! the skit. I should have explained it more clearly. he was standing at a podium handing out various muppet noses to various AM's, putting them on their previously nose-less faces. At the end of the skit, he's looking for an extra nose for himself (dispite having one on having one on his face already), he gets a little dissappointed and looks around for an extra. he then takes the glasses of the AM, using them as a nose....
  8. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Ah, now it makes sense that the song was called "Everything's Coming up Noses". Still agree, there's no business like nose business... like nose business I nose.
    And besides, my leige and I prefer hands anyway, that's a reference to an SS song.

    So, should the pizza from Trash Gordon be added as "The Pizza", "The Pepperoni Pizza", "The Pepperoni and Anchovy Pizza", or "The Pepporini and Anchovy Pizza with Extra Garlic"?
    Have a good day, and talk to you guys later.
  9. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    The Pizza actually appeared before in an Elmo's world segment, but I'm guessing it was a little different.
  10. Drtooth

    A couple corrections and addendums

    Firstly, I forgot to mention that both the Butler and Joe Hundred Guy had 2 bushy eyebrows each. The butler's seemed attached to his eyes, and Joe Hundredguy's eyebrows were slightly raised.

    The butler's nose was orange, not red as previously indicated (the color was screwing up on my TV, the channel SS comes on doesn't come in that well) also, the Butler's suit was more of a blackish brown. He was wearing a tan vest, beige tie, and white shirt undernieth.

    And Joe's tie isn't the flat red plaid I thought it was, it was more multicoloered, yellows, oranges and reds. Very ugly tie.
  11. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Thanks Drtooth. It's not that plaid is necessarily ugly, it's just subtle in its coloration and appreciation. Take the Newsman figure's jacket for instance.
    Well, I'll add the pizza from Trash Gordon as "The Pepperoni and Anchovy Pizza" for now to distinguish it in my mind from this pizza that appeared in Elmo's World and until I see that segment again to ask about it then. 1 hour and counting till Episode 4064, I'll post then with requests for any new characters I find and/or any others that you forum members might have spotted which I missed due to my blind batty eyes.
  12. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Sorry to say this, but as for today's episode, I cannot help you out, until tommorrow, provided they air the right episode. My early morning class ends just as the new episode SS is over. Unless someone else can take the reigns.....
  13. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Don't worry about it Drtooth, today's episode was more of a filler episode. Tell you about it in the thoughts thread.
    The only instance of a new character I can think of in Episode 4064 is the guest that shows up during the talk segment of Elmo's World: Dances.
    Talk to you later.
  14. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    OK, here's the requests for descripts of new characters from Episode 4065.
    1 Mr. Square.
    2 The Mouse, the one that tried to climb up the pole or whatever it was he was climbing to ring the bell.
    3 The Mouse's Coach, or whoever the character was that said the Mouse could ring the bell.
    4 The Square, from Baby Natasha's talk show segment.
    5 The All-Baby Band, was this the same group of Muppet characters as Bobby Benson's Band?
    6 Ding the Merciless.
    Please post here and thanks for your help with all of these.

    I wasn't totally paying attention to much, so I can't help you on the Baby Band too much... they're AM's (3 of them, one one the keyboard, one one drums, and one I think with a electric guitar...) 2 of which (keyboard, guitar) were like Prairie Dawn like puppets, the guitar one was I think orange, the keyboarder was I think pink and... The Drummer was a bit bigger, and probably orane as well, didn't get too good a look at him. They had only a mouth and sunglasses, but the drummer also had a small yellow or green nose, and he wore a baby bonnet. I didn't catch the clothes on the others.... I'll have to try again tommorow.

    Mr. Square... a round headed lavendar AM with live hands. he had a red nose (I think) and eyes with blue eyelids, and 2 thin brown eye brows. Uh... remember the flat top haircuts of the early 90's? his hair was like that, but cube shaped....very odd looking. He wore loud clothing with squares all over, neatly in rows, all red, blue, orange, green, yellow squares. He wore (true to his name) 50's horn rimmed glasses, with square shaped lenses. His microphone was square shaped as well.

    The Square was a big red muppet square (not a cube, though... he was flatter on the ends,more like a box) with eyes with green eyelids. He had 2 black eyebrows, near the lower left corner of his mouth there was a black mole, and he had this weird blemish (a pimple?) under his lip (his mouth opened downwards, sort of like Beaker).

    The Mouse. A SS muppet mouse (a blue fuzzy cartoony looking mouse), wearing a hard hat with a hammershaped thingy coming out of it to ring the bell.

    The coach... he wasn't on too long, and I only say him from the back... but he looked a LOT like Rizzo... only a lighter color, and his looks were simplified.

    Ding the Merciless... A regular yellow dinger, wearing a sinister looking black robe. It had a large flat round circle for a hood.

    OK, here's the last ones from this week's worth of episodes.
    Please describe to the best of your knowledge and/or abilities.
    1 Elmo's World: The Book.
    2 The Muddy Mudongs.
    Also, is their name spelled "Mudongs", "Muddongs", or "MudOngs"?
    Please reply ASAP and have a good weekend.

    1. The Picture Book--not much I can remember. I think that the cover had a red border, and a large "Picture Book" on the title. The eyes were on the top cover and had purple eyelids with green cartoony lashes. His pages/ mouth had a big black throat, with six cartoon pictures as the "gums". His pages are also an off-yellow color.

    The Circus Book--green border with a large "CIRCUS" title and circus tent on the front. Its sleepy pink eyelidded eyes are on the "stacked pages" on the top--sort of where a regular Muppet's "lips" should be.

    2. They are the Muddy M-U-D-D-O-N-S. Two grouch puppets from "Elmo in Grouchland" with furry "trumpet noses" covered in mud. The first one was brown with dark-brown eyebrows. The second was an off-grey one with scraggly fur and black/grey eyebrows. They stood in front of Trash Gordan, and during their "Glurg-glurg-glurg" conversation, the brown Muddon's eyes are shifted to the right, and the other's was to the left.
  18. MuppetDude

    I'm thinking that you can include "Old King Cole's Servant" as a whole group of servants. That way, you include the one from JTE and the ones from the sketch where Old King Cole (Ernie) is adding up his fiddlers. And, in order not to get some people confused, you might want to call them "Old King Cole's (Ernie's) Servants".

    1. The Clown could be added, but maybe you can call her :
    The Clown (SS, from Journey to Big Bird)

    2. I like the sound of "Beard-Losing Singers", but you may want to add a side note:
    Beard-Losing Singers (SS, from "B.B. King")

    3. I'm repeating myself, but it's spelled M-U-D-D-O-N-S.

    A little more help:

    The lizard that appears in "Elmo's Chicken Dream" is the same one seen in Kermit's "Swamp Alphabet" song.

    Joe's fake last name is one word instead of two: Hundredguy. Another interesting detail about the "Joe Hundredguy" AMs is that both have big eyes; not exactly the type you'd see on regular AMs; they're roughly the size of Cookie Monster's eyes, but flat.

    From what I read on the Internet, this puppet is the "Big Head" Muppet from Muppet Meeting Films. He was on one of the Muppet Central banners.

    Ah, so there were two books in that Elmo's World segment eh? Well, they'll both go into the listings now.
    The servants of Ernie as Old King Cole are already added to my listings under the entry "Old King Cole's Fiddlers".
    The Muddy Muddons, along with everything from this second week will now be added.
    Thanks and have a good weekend.
