    Here's what his Web site has to say...


    The new Sesame character "Dr. Feel" is one of several new parody characters that will be in season 35. This is from last month's announcement about the new season.

    You're better off not knowing.

    *Whinces in anticipation of being pelted with vegtables by angry Dr. Phil fans.

    Actually, he's a psychologist from Texas who got "bored" with his regular practice, became a jury consultant, helped Oprah win a lawsuit, became a guest on her show and now he's got his own show. He's extremely popular but most doctors are extremely critical of his methods, and rightly so. I don't agree with his approach, but he's definately entertaining.

    `Ya got love anybody who has his own Muppet! :)

    Dr.Phil is a boring talk show.

    I think his hard-hitting "truths" about people when he's 'helping' them is kinda harsh, but sometimes folks thinks it's the best way of dealing with problems. I suppose that it's better than asking over and over again, "So, how does that make you feel? Mm-hmm, and how does THAT make you feel? Mm-hmm. How do you feel about that? Mm-hmm." I hate therapists who do that! Dr. Phil is also egotistical nowadays it seems to me, but I might be wrong.

    Yep. Should be an interesting pairing to say the least.

    Maybe Dr. Phil is the one who told them to sell themselves to Disney. :o

    I checked the TV listings for the show today and they didn't say anything about the Sesame Street Muppets. I'm hoping that's just an oversight on the website. I was really mad when I taped "The Other Half" thinking Kermit would be on it, yet he never showed up. I hope we don't have this situation again.

    i just saw the episode of dr. phil. It was cool. Elmo was giving kisses to all the little kids, dr. feel was acting like dr. phil, and big bird was intimidating everyone with his size.

    Dr. Feel sounded so familiar! Was it indeed Steve doing the voice?
