    OK guys, now that I have your attention I'd like to finish off the list of characters for which I'm still missing descripts in order to make all the recent additions to my listings.
    Here's the list of characters.

    From Episodes 4067-4071.
    1 Firefighter Richard (Name of human actor also needed.)
    2 Mr. Noodle's Sister, Ms. Noodle (Name of human actress also needed.)
    From Episodes 4072-4076.
    3 King Cookie.
    4 King Cookie's Royal Helper, please confirm if this was Alan in costume.
    5 Gary Gills or Professor Gary gills, please confirm what this character's correct name is along with a descript.
    6 Elmo's World: The Squeaky Shoes.
    7 Elmo's World: The Bunny or Rabbit, who gave Elmo's TV a pair of rabbit ears.
    8 The Adventures of Trash Gordon: The Giant Grumpy Guppy.
    9 The characters that got knocked over by Curly Bear's loud growl on the Street.
    10 The characters who appeared on the set of the Count's production of Transylvania 65000.

    Additional Questions.
    11 The Cute Little Animals, from Global Grover's second trip to Australia.
    Should these be included as one group entry or as three separate entries?
    12 The King's Horses, from Episode 4070.
    Should these be included when it's been said that they were Buster and Fred?
    Especially when Buster and Fred the Wonder Horse have been already added to the listings?
    13 The King's Men, from Episode 4070.
    Should they be added as a separate entry, or together with the King's Horses from this episode?
    14 The King's Men, from the News Flash.
    Should they be added with a "News Flash" adendem to distinguish these from the ones from Episode 4070?
    15 The Sleddog, from Global Grover's Alaskan Winter.
    Should this character be added?
    If so, please provide a descript of what it looks like.
    Thanks for your help, and I hope to hear from you soon on finally getting all these characters added.

    Hey guys, hate to sound like a broken record... But I'd rully like to get the characters listed above added to the listings ASAP before worrying about another week's worth of new characters.
    So please post any and all info on the characters listed above and help answer the remaining questions.
    Thanks, and hope to hear from you guys soon.

    1.Firefighter Richard, played by real-life firefighter Richard Gleason, wore a black coat and helmet. He has black hair and hazel eyes.
    2. Ms. Noodle is played by Kristin Chenoweth, and she has blond pigtails and bluish-green eyes. She wore a grey vest with black marks on it, and a pink bowtie with long ends. She also wore a white shirt, grey knickers, black stockings, and black high-heeled boots.
    3. King Cookie wore a gold crown with encrusted jewels, and a red cape and gold cloak, with brown fur trim. He held a gold scepter in his right hand.
    4. King Cookie's "R.H." was indeed Alan Muraoka, wearing a gold garment with white frilly cuffs and collar. He wore a gold shirt with slightly puffy sleeves, and wore an apron-like gold garment with a cookie on the front (this same type of fabric is also a banner on his long horn). He wore a flat, round, brown hat with two tan diagonal stripes on one side of it, and also wore black tights and shoes.
    5. Professor Gary G-I-L-L was the old Guy Smiley puppet (you could see little pegs on the back of his eyebrows that controlled them to move) with a few changes: he had larger ears, "perky" green eyelids, a sort of fat "triangular" lavendar nose, and wore a loud tan suit with a checker-like pattern, and a vaudevillian's straw hat.
    6. The Squeaky Shoes were a pair of black loafers with white eyes with pink eyelids.
    7. The Rabbit was a brown cartoon-like rabbit, with small eyelids and a pink nose. His ears could move with the use of control rods. His design looks like a distant relative of a naked George Rabbit from "Emmet Otter".
    8. The Grumpy Guppy was a blue fish with angry eyes and fuzzy black eyelashes.
    9. One was a tiny pink bird, and the other was a fat blue A.M. (not the one from Charlie's Restaurant) whose clothes were blown away by the growl! (The clothes were made to rip off by means of pieces of monofilament pulling them off.)
    10. I'll have to get back to you on that later.
    11. I don't think you should count them under any group listing, since they were just random Muppets put in the sketch.
    12. Sesame Street has always used Fred and Buster (and the others) as "anonymous horses". A few years back, they substituted the brown horse puppet with the Buster puppet for Marshall Grover segments.
    13 & 14. I think they should all be in the same grouping. Maybe the Muppet Workshop had a different opinion on the design for the recent Men than the original ones.
    15. Contrasting to #11, the Sleddog could be on the list, since he was built for the sketch and had an important purpose in it. He was a grey Huskie with pink (I think) eyelids.

    I've got to look over the "Global Grover" sketches to consider whether or not you should add all of the other characters that have appeared in those sketches.

    Immensely huge mad props go out to MuppetDude for helping me finialize those new Sesame Street acquisitions for the ML.
    If you're wondering whether to make an argument for including the Global Grover critters, consider this. Stevie Elephant and Sidney Camel, along with Ming the Peacock and Sheila the Kangaroo are already there. Though after listing those four examples just now, I think I'll drop the article "the" from the last two.
    Anyway, I'll just keep the cute little animals and sleddog in mind till I hear from you again. Until tomorrow, have a great day.

    Here's something to add. Gary Gills had 2 back up singers/ assistants.

    One was a green am (sort of like Little Jerry or Farley) with light brown hair (and eyebrows), and he had a small red circle nose.

    The other was a pink AM... his head was... well... he looked like a SS Human AM version of Fozzie Bear. His eyes and nose were exactly the same positioning as Fozzie as well. He had purple eyelids and a small yellow nose.

    In fact, I think the puppeteer did an impersonation of Fozzie when he performed him.

    They both, as Kermit would say, looked like Ice cream men from "Hello Dolly!" Wearing lighter colored beige (compaired to gary's) vaudevillina suits.

    Sorry I couldn't help out sooner... I've been really busy lately.
  6. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Active Member

    You bring up a good argument, Count, but all of those animals you listed have names, whereas the others don't (unless you want to count Grover's referring to the sleddog as "Doggie").
    And thanks for the addition of Gary's back-up singers, Drtooth.
  7. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    All frighty then...
    1 The cute little animals will be dropped and not added, unless someone comes up with a better argument for their inclusion.
    Unless you think they should go in as "The Cute Little Animals", but I digress.
    2 The Sleddog won't be added for the same reasons.
    3 Professor Gary Gill's Backup Singers will be added.
    4 The Horse, as MuppetDude suggested, that Everyone Gets Back On will be added.
    Don't have anything else to ask about since I wasn't able to watch either Episode 4077 nor 4078, but if you guys have the character names and descripts then post them here and we'll chat.
    Thanks and have a good day.
  8. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Ha! Finally have some new characters from this week to ask about.
    Here's the list from Episode 4079.
    1 The names of the members of Miles's band, including descripts of what they looked like and the names of the human actors who portrayed these roles if possible.
    2 The Man in Brown.
    3 The pig who flew up into the air, was its name Hickory Dickory Dare or just Hickory Dickory?
    4 N*Stync.
    5 Flem & M.
    6 Triangle Bob Trianglepants.
    Please post your replies here and hope to hear from you guys soon.

    Episode 4077:
    1. Elmo's World: The Bell
    A gold bell with the open part turned upward. Her face is the bell's cup, and she has lidless eyes with lashes, a mole on her right cheek, and red lips on her mouth, which moves sort of like a ventriloquist's dummy's mouth.

    Episode 4078:
    2. The Fairy Napmother
    Basically a lavendar live-hand version of Glenda the Good Witch from "The Wizard of Oz", both in clothing and facial design. She's got a green nose.

    3-11. Rosita's Familia, including her papa, her mama, her abuelo (grandfather), her abuela (grandmother), her tia (aunt) Mercedes, and her primos (cousins): Paco, Pepe, Luis, and Conchita. I'll try and get these descripts later today.

    12. Elmo's World: The Bed
    It has a horizontally striped white mattress with a black mouth and round hemispherical eyes with eyelids. On top of the matress is a white pillow, whose face is visible from inside its pillowslip. She has a black mouth with female eyes with lashes. I believe that the bed also has a white blanket on top.

    13. Elmo's World: The Nest
    A nest with a mouth and brown eyelids with lashes. Inside the nest is a small lavendar bird with an orange beak (a baby Flooter-Tooter).

    Episode 4079:
    14-16. Miles's Band
    I'm not too good at describing people, so there's probably someone out there who could help me.

    17. The Man in Brown
    A tall orange A.M. with dark brown hair and eyebrows, a brown suit, a light brown shirt, a brown spotted necktie, a light brown nose, brown eyelids, and brown-rimmed glasses.

    18. Hickory Dickory is a peach-colored four-legged pig puppet.

    That's all I can help you with for now, but I will try to describe the rest of the characters missing on your list later.
  10. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Can always "count" on 2, 2 people! Yes, that's today's Number of the Day, 2!
    And from Episode 4080.
    1 Elmo's Fairy Godperson.
    2 Elmo's World: The Yoyo, or should it be Yo-Yo? Episode 4079, forgot about this one.
    3 Elmo's World: The accordion.

    BTW: Thanks MuppetDude, based on your descripts the pillow from the bed could probably be counted as a separate character, just wondering if the blanket was Muppetized as well. The baby bird could be added too.
    And based on your descripts, I like that Bell. Hello miss Bell nurse!
    Hope to hear from you soon and have a great day.
  11. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Active Member

    No prob, Count. Here's the descripts for Rosita's family. (NOTE: All of them sport the same kind of "Rosita eyes", nose, and feathery kind of hair.):

    Rosita's Papa--a blue monster. He's made from the old Parker Monster puppet, and he's got green eyelids, a tuft of white hair on the top of his head, a round lavendar nose, and a dark necktie with polka dots.

    Rosita's Mama--a "Rosita Extra" puppet with pink hair and pearls.

    Rosita's Abuelo--a small grey monster with grey hair, nose, eyelids, and wire-rimmed glasses.

    Rosita's Abuela--a "Rosita Extra" puppet with gray hair, a grey nose, and an orange shawl.

    Rosita's Tia Mercedes--from the looks of it, they use the green Phoebe monster from "Monster Clubhouse" since she's got the same green lips, but other than that, she's got pink hair, a round pink nose, lavendar eyelids, red-rimmed glasses, and a purple neckerchief with flower decoration.

    Rosita's Primo Paco--a blue flat-headed monster with an orange nose, a yellow, flipped-around baseball cap, yellow hair, and pink eyelids.

    Rosita's Primo Pepe--looks the same as Paco, but with a green nose and an orange baseball cap.

    Rosita's Primo Luis--looks like Paco and Pepe without the cap, and has pink hair and a pink nose.

    Rosita's Prima Conchita--a small off-green monster with an orange nose and light green "Red Fraggle" pigtails tied with shiny orange ribbon.

    And here's some more descriptions, but I'm not as helpful with these today. I did get a good look at them, but I'm not good with the wardrobe descriptions:

    N*Stync--Three grouches dressed in scuzzy, torn hip-hop outfits.

    One was tangerine-colored and fuzzy, and had grey eyebrows, wore a blue bandana on his head (to which a fishbone is attached), and a gold earring. Not sure about his other clothes, but if you want to know tell me.

    A second grouch wore a grey shirt and knit cap. and yellow sunglasses. He was light grey.

    A third wore a tan outfit and hat, and his fur was both yellow and green, with brown eyebrows.

    Flem & M (which may be spelled P-H-L-E-G-M-I-N-E-M so it resembles Eminem's name)--he was a brown grouch with "perky" black eyebrows, and wore a torn red hooded jacket with white stripes, a torn yellow sleeveless shirt, and he held a microphone. Following him was a brown grouch with brown eyebrows wearing brown cap, jacket, and a headset. He carried a dual record player.

    TriangleBob TrianglePants--Bob McGrath in one of the most ridiculous outfits I've ever seen in the history of the show. He wore yellow tights so his skin tone would resemble that of SpongeBob. On his head, he wore a flipped-over red baseball cap with a red triangle, so that his painted-on freckled face is seen through the triangle's hole. He wore a white shirt with a triangular green necktie, white gloves, suspenders, black shorts decorated with triangles, white socks with blue stripes, and black shoes with red buckles.

    Miles's Band--hopefully someone can come up with names, but they were all African-American human males.

    Tony (the only name I could remember) is the drummer, with a thin moustache, a green knit-cap, and a brown jacket.

    The other two band members have nicknames I gave to them in order to identify them:

    "Frizzy Hair"--has very frizzy brown hair and fuzzy eyebrows, a thin moustache, and also wore a brown jacket.

    "Black Jack"--nicknamed because he wore a black leather jacket, and has short black hair, an earring, and a thin moustache.

    Forgot about the accordion, but he's got green ends; the top end has gold keys, and the bottom end has piano keys. He's built vertically, so somewhere along the middle of his red and green bellows, his large red and pink mouth opens. He's also got sleepy grey eyelids, and a black handlebar moustache.

    There's one more character from Elmo's World: The Clarinet, who is basically a realistic clarinet with feminine pink eyelids.

    And concerning the bed: no, it shouldn't be counted. The only thing it did was pull back to reveal the other Muppet's faces.

    And concerning the lavendar bird; her name is Cathy Cuckoo, and was built in an episode where she hatches in Big Bird's nest, so she can be counted separately from the "Elmo's World" ensemble. (For some reason, the Flooter-Tooters in this episode were referred to as Cuckoos.)

    Aside from this list, I'd like to know a couple of things about yourself.
    1. Could you please show us your latest Muppet Listing after the Season 35 characters are added? I'm itching to find out how it's progressed. :) :) :)

    2. What year did you lose your sight? It would help me know which Muppets you have seen before and those you have never seen.

    BTW, this may be the last of the season 35 list I can help you on. I may not be back to help you until Monday. :cry:

    But on a lighter note----------- :zany:
  12. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Thank you so very much MuppetDude. OK, let's take these in order.
    Based on your descripts, the following will be added at the end of the week or at the end of the season, whichever happens first or closer to the time you're able to come back and keep helping or someone else comes in and helps with the descripts.
    New Additions
    1 The three members of Miles's Band will wait till Episode 4079 gets repeated and I can get their names, at least their character names.
    2 The Man in Brown.
    3 Hickory Dickory.
    4 N*Stync.
    5 Phlegminem, thought it was M&M.
    6 Triangle Bob Trianglepants.
    7 Elmo's World: The Accordion.
    8 Elmo's World: The Clarinet.
    Thanks for that one, wasn't sure if it nor the drums nor the banjo were additional Muppets or just products of Elmo/Dorothy's imagination.
    9 Elmo's World: The Bell.
    10 The Fairy Napmother.
    11 Elmo's World: The Nest.
    12 Cathy or Kathy Cuckoo, will check it later.
    Thought this one would go as a separate entry as Baby Fluter-Tooter, but thanks for the real name.
    13 Elmo's World: The Bed.
    14 Elmo's World: The Pillow. It's only fair, since I added the Snoretians' Pillow as well.
    15-23 All nine members of Rosita's family.
    Still Missing so far.
    24 Elmo's Fairy Godperson.
    25 Elmo's World: The Yoyo or is it Yo-Yo?

    As for me...
    26 I still have some residual sight left, but it's not enough to discern images on a TV or computer screen. The last truely definitive Muppet sightings I was able to watch on my TV was back in 1996, with the episode featuring Renata Scottie Dog (if that's her correct full name, one I've sought for the sentimental attachment to that episode since it was also the last continuous episode of SS I saw before studying at my university; and reconnecting with you guys here on this forum two years ago with the advent of the Palisades figures.)
    I was also able to see some of Muppets Tonight, but not as clearly nor definitive as I would've liked. Or maybe I was able to see them well, but don't remember that well in light of my asking for descripts from you guys for these things and given that my condition was in a bit of flux at that time.
    27 A current version of the ML, 10.0, is posted here on the forums; but I was thinking of coming here and checking with you guys after the season was over with everything gathered to see if everything was there and there's nothing missing. But I guess a V10.5 could be arranged.
    Thanks for all your help and hope to talk to you soon.
  13. The Count

    27 Elmo's World: The Yoyo, or should it be writen "Yo-Yo"?

  14. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    I am not sure, but I think it was Elmo's FURRy Godperson... but not so sure.

    Did anyone ever describe the Fairy Dog father (or whatever he was called) from the episode where Baby Bear wanted to be a dog? They used the exact same puppet, only with out the ears and the dog nose.

    If not...

    He's an orange AM that looks like Guy Smiley (more accurately, Monty) with bushy eyebrows, and bushy, yet balding hair (both black) he has lidless eyes (I recall) and a large Tear drop shaped nose (best word I can think of) that was red. He wore a black suit, and had white fairy wings coming out of his back. He had live hands, and his "cellular wand" was a magic wand (the kind with a star at the end) attatched to a small fold up cell phone.

    And the letter X (might as well) was a green X with a really small mouth denoted by thin blue lips and worse sunglasses. he had eyes with orange eye lids, but the galsses blocked them.

    Henry Piggins (the correct name) was a pig puppet (the more realistic looking pig that's on all 4 feet) with a monacle on his left eye and he was wearing a top hat and tuxedo.
  15. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Thanks Drtooth, will add Henry Piggins now. No, noone described the Dog Fairy to me cause I didn't ask for one, though maybe I shoulda.
    I'll wait till MuppetDude gets back to confirm the spelling of some of these names.
    And was this letter X a scaled-down version of the one in the episode seen on Noggin? Just to know, that's all. In general, I don't list letter nor number Muppets, cause there are far too many and would just clog up the system. However, they would be mentioned and described when I'm able to go to the studios (hopefully) and do some rull heavy-duty hands-on research.
    But any info you guys can provide is greatly appreciated, and thanks and have a good weekend.
  16. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    OH yeah, before I forget again...
    If you guys could, please post descripts of Rosalita and the other kid AM's that appeared in the sketch/song "Hace Calor" seen in Episode 4081. Thanks and good weekend to all.
  17. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    I was just explaining how the X looked.... I know you do not list letters.
  18. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    O, OK. Sorry bout that 1 pal.
    Well, will have the last of the season after Monday, and then it's on the watch for missed episodes.
    Hope this helps and have a good weekend.
  19. Drtooth

    The burro was a semi-realistic Muppet Burro, with cartoony Muppet eyes with blue eye lids. He wore a red reign. In case you want to know, he sculpted Grover in a "The Thinker" pose out of clay at the end.

    The tornado: A dark grey funnel cloud shaped Muppet, with floating angry eyes with bushy black eye brows.... and I think, redish bags under his eyes. the bottom part, which was the actual tornado was seperated, so it could Spin, like a real tornedo. This was used before in a commercial before a kid's movie at a Loews Cineplex.

    The big cranky Monster baby? Natasha. Just her blue screened in so she could look giant.
  20. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Thanks Drtooth. Still searching for the proper spelling of the burro's name, which will be hopefully provided by MuppetDude.
    Kyle already told me that the burro sculpted a statue of Grover as the Thinker.
    But the question I still have is how did Trash Gordon take care of the Giant Cranky Monster Baby?

    Oh, and here's the last of the season.
    Episode 4082.
    1 Elmo's World: The Dinosaur.
    2 The monsters that appeared in the song before Elmo's World, if any of them had names please provide them along with the descripts.
    After all of these are sorted out, I'll be watching missed episodes for remaining characters if any.
    Thanks and keep posting those character descripts here.
