    Well I don't think there really is an explanation for these.

    You mean now the rest of us have to be as afraid of Pizza Delivery Monster :super: as Mr. Johnson?

    Do NOT throw ideas like that around when fanfic-writing artists are nearby.

    Heh, join the club, my mind's been churning with a Trash to the Future spoof all weekend long. And it's not my fault, :super:'s the one who kept bringing Mr. Johnson saws on his pizza when he kept trying to say "sausages".

    Oh my god those are horrifying. Why anyone would have paid 350.00 for them is beyond me.

    The seller has ended the auction due to "an error in the listing." We'll see if he re-lists them a little more accurately.

    They're not the actual puppets. They aren't even close to the actual puppets. They're crudely-made, ridiculously priced, and its description is misleading. I would not want to buy these.

    Right?? I'm quite unsettled with how the seller noted that these were used on the show!! A real Don Sahlin imposter/wannabe I should say...

    I'm going to buy these. They would go great with my Bart and Arnie puppets.

    Then you better message the seller and ask him to relist them. Also, I hope you have enough money...

    People, people, people - please show some respect for the work of the great Jim Hanson!!

    Now, let me go check ebay and see if I can find one of the original puppets used in Steven Spailbarg's E.B!

    Was Don Sahlin in a hurry and in a bad mood that day?

    Was everybody who replied to LaRanaRene's post not versed in the art of sarcasm? :rolleyes:

    Steven Springvile?
    Steven Splashbottom?
    Steven Spearmint?
    Eh, Mr. Kate Kapshaw.

    I'm still waiting for that 5 Nights of Sesame fic from Slackbot. ;)
    *:concern: in a creepy voice, holding his balloons: I'm going to go back there somedaaaaay...

    Mmm, good ol' fashioned Muppety nightmare fuel.

    What was it... ten years ago that we were looking at an eBay listing for an officially licensed Kermit the Frog plush, but the items in the pictures didn't even look like Kermit, not did it even remotely resemble any fully licensed character, it looked more like Fenwick's long-lost narcoleptic half-brother.
