    Tardy is one of the funniest characters on the show and is one of the few that accually looks almost as good as the Muppets. I also loved those unionised hampsters that were this weeks episode.

    I also love Tardy (as in retard, that's how he got the name). I'm more of a count Blah fan, but he's my second fav. He's like the puppet equivilent of Ralph Wiggum (of the Simpsons). I busted an intestine after he said "Chocolate ice cream goes in the freezer!"

    I'm glad that Tardy is getting an audience. I guess his name can be taken two ways. Definitely intentional. He can turn any line into comic gold. He kind of reminds me of Beauregard, but not too much. And I think he is the best built puppet as far as expressiveness goes.

    I love tardy too, but my favorite is Count Blah. A igit Blah... Did anyone see the Janice look alike on Greg? She was on the previews for next week's show. "Janice" was in the background and she looked sorta fat. I thought that pretty cool but weird.

    I love Tardy!! He's so hilarious! However, I don't like the idea he's supposed to be mentally retarded, because he could have just been a dumb character w/o being mentally challenged, but, hey, that's the writer's decision.

    "The green ones make me h*****!" :p

    Tardy is the funniest thing on the show but I think all the puppets are pretty funny.

    Geez. I guess I'm not the only one who appreciates the turtle. I really think he's the best built as well. And my friends who have seen it are all like, "Yep, that's Jamie!" LOL!

    I went to the sporting goods store today and found some paintballs. The turtle was wrong. It doesn't taste like purple. It tastes like paint. Ew.

    I have a pet turtle, his name is Humphrey. His WHOLE name is Humphrey Shelldon Freeman Williams III. I like giving my pets long, important sounding names. He's very smart, for a turtle. Strong and fast, too!

    You crack me up! I have no pets, but I have wanted a Chihuahua named Pepe for years now.

    ...tastes like purple! Forgot about that one. Drumsticks is also chicken!
