Sesame Street Season 35 New Characters

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

    OK, here's the latest Season 35 update.
    Based on Drtooth's info, the following characters will be added.
    The Adventures of Trash Gordon: The Giant Cranky Monster Baby.
    Elmo's World: The Tornado.
    Henry Piggins.

    Here's what's still left.
    1 The name of the burro from Global Grover. Waiting for confirmation from MuppetDude or someone else if its name is spelled "E-D-I-B-E-R-T-O" or "E-D-I-B-U-R-T-O".
    2 Elmo's Fairy Godperson. Waiting for confirmation from MuppetDude if it's his "Fairy" or "Furry" Godperson.
    3 Elmo's World: The Yoyo. Waiting for confirmation from MuppetDude if it's spelled "Yoyo" or "Yo-Yo".
    Looking forward to your replies and tomorrow's repeat airing of 4059 for any other characters I've missed.

    And here are some other questions that came to mind recently.
    4 Should the miners from Kermit's trip to the Alphabet Mines be added as "The Alphabet Miners"?
    5 Should the tribe of characters who appeared in the song "African Alphabet" sung by Kermit be added as "The African Alphabet Tribe"?
    6 Should the birds that appeared in the song "Coconut Counting Man" sung by the Count and Harry Belafonte be added as "The Coconut Counting Man's Birds"?
    7 For that matter, should the Count's tropical alterego or persona of "The Coconut Counting Man" be added to the listings too?
    Please post here and thanks for all you guys help.

    I don't have much time today, but here is what I can answer:

    1. The donkey's name is E-R-I-B-E-R-T-O.
    2. It's "Fairy", not "Furry".
    3. I'd go with "yo-yo" with a dash; I've never seen it spelled any other way.
    4. Miles's band member's names:
    "Frizzy-Hair's" real name is John.
    "Black Jack's" name is T-A-L-I-B.
    5. I like the idea of "The Coconut Counting Man" being in the list. You've got The Great Ninetini and Alistair Cookie, so why not?
    6. Why are you adding the Giant Baby from Trash Gordon if Natasha is already on your list? (BTW: Trash Gordon gives her a giant baby bottle.)
    7. The monsters who sang in episode 4082 were Narf (he sang the lead), two anonymous monsters, and Peeno, a Monster bully. (His name is spelled P-E-E-N-O.)

    That's all I can give you today. Whenever I can, I'll send you the descriptions.

    Thanks MuppetDude, as soon as you can post the rest.
    Now then, let's see what we have to work with.

    1, 2, and 3: Miles's Band.
    John, Talib, and Tony will be added, though I'd appreciate it if anyone could also provide the names of the actors who portrayed those roles.
    4 Elmo's Fairy Godperson will be added.
    5 Eriberto Burro will be added.
    6 The Giant Cranky Monster Baby: Though it turned out to be Natasha super-imposed over the blue screen so as to appear as a giant, it is in essence a character from The Adventures of Trash Gordon, is it not? And all characters from The Adventures of Trash Gordon count towards the Season 35 character count, no? Or would you get rid of the giant grumpy guppy and/or giant space chicken and/or others?
    Just explaining the reason behind this addition.

    Still Missing.
    7 Elmo's World: The Yo-Yo, as soon as I get a descript it'll be added.
    8 Elmo's World: The Dinosaur, as soon as I get a descript it'll be added.

    Other Characters.
    From Episode 4059.
    9 The Fairytale Chorus.
    10 The Banana Queen (Merissa Tome)
    11 The Banana King.
    12 The Monkey King, should this one also be counted?
    13 Jose the Puppet.
    14 Baby Cookie Monster, or should it be "Young Cookie Monster"?
    15 Elmo's World: The Apple.
    16 Elmo's World: The Broccoli.
    17 Elmo's World: The Corn.
    18 Elmo's World: The Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich.
    19 Elmo's World: The Pizza.
    20 The Adventures of Trash Gordon: The Wiggly Squiggly Worms.

    Additional Characters to Consider.
    21 Elmo's World: The Monkey.
    22 Elmo's World: The Top Banana.
    23 The Alphabet Miners.
    24 The African Alphabet Tribe.
    25 The Coconut Counting Man.
    26 The Coconut Counting Man's Birds.
    Please provide descripts of all these listed above and whether the last four should be added or not. Awaiting replies in this thread, thanks for your help and have a good day.

    Hi guys, hate to be a bother, but I rully need your help on sorting through the characters posted in the list above. MuppetDude? Drtooth? Anyone else?
    Remember, the sooner we get these sorted with descripts and human actor names where applicable, the sooner the Season 35 character count gets completed and ML 10.5 gets posted.
    Hope to hear from you soon with replies to the missing characters, and have a good night.

    Elmo's World: The Yo-Yo
    The "face" of the yo-yo is in the middle of one of the round parts. It's yellow with small eyebrows, black eyelashes, and a black smiling with a pink tongue. The face itself is a separate piece from the outer yellow and orange stripe border around her, enabling that striped piece to rotate as it moves up and down, while the face stays in place.

    Elmo's World: The Dinosaur
    Basically just the head and neck of a dark orange brontasaurus. He's got roundish eyes like Gobo Fraggle, a bottom jaw that slightly sticks out, and the lower part of his head and neck is a lighter orange color.

    A yellow live-hand anything monster with a squarish head. He's got yellow horns, angry eyes with pink lids and brown furry lashes (but they're not "sleepy" eyes), and a round dark pink nose.

    The Fairy Tale Chorus
    This group is composed of the Big Bad (Lavendar) Wolf, the Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood (a green AM with black hair and a red hood), and Little Bo Peep (a live-hand lavendar AM with a blue dress and bonnet).

    The Monkey/Banana King
    When he's a monkey, it's just Joey Monkey in a black suit and tie. After he's kissed, he becomes a fat blue AM with short black hair, orange eyelids, and a round orange nose. He's wearing the same suit he is when he's a monkey.

    Baby Cookie Monster
    (This may be a good entry to include his original name "Sid".) He looks a lot like a toy Cookie Monster puppet with googly eyes, live hands, an orange (?) frilly bonnet, a bib, and a diaper.

    Elmo's World: Food
    All of the food looks just like the real thing but with Muppet eyes and mouths. The apple had black lashes, as did the broccoli. The ear of corn had plain white eyes, the PB & J sandwich had sleepy eyelids, and the pizza had pinkish eyelids. (Note: The pizza is used again in a Trash Gordon episode, but turned upside down and with different eyes.)

    The Banana Queen (her name is spelled M-A-R-I-S-S-A T-O-M-E-I)
    In the story she wore a blue, red, and yellow waitress uniform and hat, and she wore a large black beehive wig.

    I also like the addition of the Alphabet Miners and the African Alphabet Tribe.
  6. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Thanks MuppetDude, been waiting for these. The following will be added.
    7 Elmo's World: The Yo-Yo.
    8 Elmo's World: The Dinosaur.
    15-19, all from Elmo's World as well.
    9 The Fairytale Chorus, though why would Bo Peep be there since she's from a nursery rhyme and not a fairy tale?
    10 The Banana Queen (SS, Marissa Tome)
    11 The Monkey/Banana King.
    14 Baby Cookie Monster, I think it would be weird to list him as "Sid" or "Baby Sid Cookie Monster", don't you?

    Still Missing.
    13 Jose the Puppet, from Global Grover: Mexico: Puppet Maker.
    20 The Adventures of Trash Gordon: The Wiggly Squiggly Worms.

    Agreed, these would make nice additions, but I'd appreciate it if I could get descripts for the following.
    21 The Alphabet Miners.
    22 The African Alphabet Tribe.
    23 The Coconut Counting Man.
    24 The Coconut Counting Man's Birds.
    25 Elmo's World: The Monkey.
    26 Elmo's World: The Top Banana.
    Hope to hear from you again soon to finalize this list and hope you have a good day.
  7. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    OK, looks like I'm going to have to rescue my own thread again. Here's what's still missing from being added to the list. Please provide descripts of the following entries.
    1 Jose the Puppet, from Global Grover in Episode 4059.
    2 The Adventures of Trash Gordon: The Wiggly Squiggly Worms, from Episode 4059.
    3 The Alphabet Miners, from a News Flash segment.
    4 The African Alphabet Tribe, from the song "African Alphabet" sung by Kermit.
    5 The Coconut Counting Man, from the song of the same name.
    6 The Coconut Counting Man's Birds, from the same song as the Coconut Counting Man.
    Hope to hear from you guys soon, and have a good day.
  8. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Come on guys, I rully need your help to finish off the Season 35 additions to the list! Can't post it for all to see if you don't help out with the descripts to get each one of these missing characters approved/acknowledged for the listings.
    Here's what's still missing as of 5/24/2004:
    1 The Adventures of Trash Gordon: The Wiggly Squiggly Worms, from Episode 4059.
    2 Jose the Puppet, from Global Grover from Episode 4059.
    3 Elmo's World: The Fly.
    4 Elmo's World: The Monkey.
    5 Elmo's World: The Spider.
    6 Elmo's World: The Top Banana.
    Hope to hear from you guys soon on getting this batch of characters moved into their homes on the list. Will post again after getting Episode 4069's characters or sooner.
    Thanks for the help and have a good day.

    Here are the ones I can do for now:

    The Wiggly Squiggly Worms--a group of worms that look like Slimey, but are different colors (one is blue, another is green, another is red, etc.)

    Jose the Puppet--I think that his head, hands, and feet are wooden, and his limbs were string. I think that he also wore a green t-shirt.

    The Fly--a realistic Muppet fly with cartoony yellow eyes.

    The Monkey--a rebuilt Quongo (the gorilla from "The Muppet Show")

    The Top Banana--a half-opened banana with black-rimmed glasses, a red necktie, a red mouth, eyelids, and thin eyebrows.

    Sorry for the lateness.

    Thank you very much MuppetDude. Sorry to have been a bit bossy in getting these characters descripts from you guys. And so long as I get them, the lateness can be excused. After all, I know that I can count on you to come through when it counts.
    The only one left from the group above still missing is Elmo's World: The Spider, from the same episode as The Fly.
    Now then, just four more episodes and we'll have finished off the season. Hope to hear from you soon, and have a good day.

    Count, will you add the "Fat Valkyrie" from the "Everything's Coming Up Noses" clip?
  12. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Well, now that you ask... that brings up a few things I've been wanting to discuss with you.
    1 Wasn't planning to add the "Fat Valkyrie" from the song "Everything's Coming Up Noses!" But if you think the character should be added, then please provide a descript. Also, should it be listed as "Fat Valkyrie" or "Big Headed Muppet"?
    2 You said that there was a second grouch character following PhlegmInEm in Episode 4079, but it still hasn't been added cause we haven't settled on a good "title" for this guy.
    To that end... does EmInEm travel with some sort of enterouge wherever he goes? If so, is there someone in that group of people who accompany him that most closely resembles the function of this SS character, someone who has all the guy's records and some sort of record or disc player to play them? If so, then what is this person's "title" within the group? My thoughts are that this real person's title would be the best way to add the SS character to the listing; i.e.: PhlegmInEm's Disc Jockey or Roadie or Producer, etc.
    3 There was a monster character in the spoof song "Bully Bully" from Episode 4082 you said was named "Peeno". Is this the same light blueish monster who appears with Grover in Charlie's Restaurant, who I've got listed as "Piño"? If you need refreshing on the clip, Mr. Johnson walks into the restaurant and Grover and "Piño" are both trying to outdo the other in serving the customer before pausing to listen to what the customer actually wants.
    Hope to hear back from you soon in hopes of sorting these out, and have a good day.
  13. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    And here's what I got from Episode 4069.
    1 Elmo's World: The Sun.
    2 Elmo's World: The Moon.
    Please post descripts of these two, and they'll be added promptly. And as soon as they've been described, that'll be one episode less and one episode closer to ending the season and getting the listing posted.
    Thanks for your help, and hope to hear from you soon.

    1. I really don't know the actual name of the puppet used. Phil used "Big Head" as the name for the banner in which he appeared in (in the Muppet Meeting Film, he had short black hair and a grey suit). I like the addition of "Fat Valkyrie" since she made two appearances: once during the "Noses" song, and in episode 4081 (she sang "la-la-la-laaaa" during the song about all of the different ways people communicate).
    2. I'm not really into Eminem, so I can't answer that. Hopefully someone else can help you with that. In the meantime, keep him in the "Phlegminem" category.
    3. The bully named Peeno was a completely different monster; I believe I gave a description of him to you (yellow with horns and a dark pink nose).

    BTW, I just wanted you to know that on your list, "Tony and Maria" from "Inside, Outside Story" are listed as monsters. They're not monsters; they're both Anything Muppets.

    And the saxophone player from Bruce Stringbean and the S Street Band is named C-L-A-R-I-C-E, not "Clyde" or "Clarence".

    As for "Elmo's World", The Sun is basically an orange sun with rays sticking out. She had a big smile and round white eyes. The Moon is round with a half-moon shape on its left side. The "moon shape" has a nose, while the other side is a dark, starry sky, and the entire puppet has a black mouth and dark sleepy eyelids.
  15. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Thanks MuppetDude, looks like I caught you just in time. OK, here are the entries that will be added.
    1 Elmo's World: The Sun.
    2 Elmo's World: The Moon.
    3 Fat Valkyrie.
    4 Peeno.
    5 Big Head, might as well since I've already got Leo with a "TMS" designation from those same Muppet Meeting films.
    6 All four members of the family from the song "Let's Go Driving", just gotta check if it fits on one line of text in my word file.

    7 Yes, Clyde will be changed to Clarice. Just watched/heard the song on the VCD I got and you're right on that one.
    8 Talked it over with my brother who listens to EmInEm, and there's not a posse per say that we could draw upon to match up this character from Episode 4079. But I wanted to ask, what do you think of listing it as "PhlegmInEm's Disc Jockey" since you said that this guy came behind the recording artist, holding a double record player?
    Well, hope to hear from you soon and have a good day.
  16. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Well, watched Episode 4074 today and here's what I got.
    1 Elmo's World: The Mailbox.
    2 The Clown, from Journey to Big Bird, should this character be counted? Was it an actual Muppet character or just a digitally animated character?
    3 The Beard-Losing Singers, from the song "B.B. King and the Letter B", should this duo be counted for the listings?
    Please provide descripts of these few entries ASAP and they'll all be added. Just two more episodes next week to finish off Version 11 and get it posted.
    Hope to hear from you guys soon and have a good day.
  17. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Well-Known Member

    The Mailbox was a big, blue, industrial mailbox with round, blue-lidded eyes on the top. His mouth was the opening at the top, and was black with a red tongue.
    As for the Clown, she appears just before Ernie begins his search; she honks a horn at him.
    I also like the addition of the "Beard-Losing Singers".
  18. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Graphic: Smile!
    Thanks MuppetDude, all three will now be added. And I've got a few more questions too.
    1 From Episode 4077...
    Please describe what the human character named "Melissa" looked like and provide the name of the actress who played her if possible. She's seen in the swings with Big Bird just before Gabi, Elmo, Zoe, and Rocco come to take their turns at the swing.
    2 From Episode 4079...
    Was thinking about the character who accompanied PhlegmInEm, which term would better fit this guy: "roadie" or "disc jockey"?
    Please reply ASAP to get these two booked and added. Only tomorrow's episode remains, along with whatever descripts remain before V 11 gets posted!
  19. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Well-Known Member

    Melissa was a little African-American girl with short hair and pigtails.

    As for the Phlegminem character, I'd call him his "disc jockey" for now.
  20. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Check and check. Thanks pal, only tomorrow's episode remains before ML 11 gets posted. And you'll see much more added there than just SS Season 35.
    Talk to you tomorrow.
