The Count on "The Simpsons"

    On tonight's Simpsons, the Count played a cameo! Here's what happened:

    The cemetery got moved next door to Springfield, and it was scaring Marge, who said:

    "This is too spooky for me. I don't even like watching the Count on Sesame Street." Then they showed Maggie watching SS and the Count was on. They showed a brief scene of him counting: "One coconuts! Two coconuts! Three coconuts! Ah ah ah ah ah!" To which Marge replied: "Go back to your own country!"

    I saw it too. It was good, but not the best muppet "appearance" on The Simpsons.

    I wonder if the producers of the simpsons have ever considered getting the actual performers to perform the voices of any Muppets that have made appearances on the show? I wonder if any of the performers would like to make guest appearances?

    I remember when Lisa asked Homer was a muppet was. he did not know.

    I also remember when Troy McClure stared in some muppet movie and he was talking to Miss Piggy! Funny stuff.

    I missed it... but I taped it! So I'll watch it tonight.

    An interesting thing about Muppet appearances on the Simpsons is that on my huge Simpsons poster that has every character on it, Kermit (from the Troy McClure episode Kimp just mentioned) is one of them. :)

    I know, I've got that poster. And if you notice, Kermit's right square in the middle of the poster. Very nice! :)

    They should rerun it sometime in the near future (the new season's epsiodes get replayed on weeks without new episodes), otherwise you'd have to wait until December 2010 for the Season 17 DVD boxset to come out. :p

    HAHAHAHAHA! That scene was HILARIOUS!!!

    I also liked how on the episode, instead of the Count's trademark "Ah ha ha ha!" he did a scary ghoulish laugh, like, "HOO-HOO-HOO-HA-HA-HA-HA!" They should have added thunder and lightning to it, though.

    I have that clip on CD (dont remember how I got it) but my version is a bit diffrent

    "Dad whats a Muppet?"
    "Well its not quite a mop, and its not quite a puppet, but ma-a-a-n, hehehe... so does that answer your question? I dont know."

    I also on the same cd have a pariody of "Muppets from Space" only its "Muppets from Japan" where they kinda sound like the 3 stooges

    Lisa: Dad, what's a muppet?
    Homer: Well, it's not quite a mop, and it's not quite a puppet, but
    man... [laughs] So to answer your question I don't know.

    Bart: Why'd they make that one muppet out of leather?
    Marge: That's not a leather muppet, that's Troy McClure. Mmm, back in
    the '70s he was quite a teen heartthrob.

    TV: "Movie For A Rained-Out Ballgame" now returns to Dyan Cannon,
    Troy McClure, and the Muppets in the 1977 film: "The Muppets Go
    Troy: Oh Princess Fair, wilst thou grant me thine dainty hoof in
    Piggy: Oh, Sir Lies-A-Lot, I will!
    [they kiss each other]
    Troy: [purrs]
    Kermit: [in armor, wielding a sword] Unhand the swine, you swain! Come,
    Piggy. back to Hamelot.
    Piggy: Heck no, frog. Me and Iron Pants are just getting acquinted.

    My favorite muppet appearance on the Simpsons definitely involves the line:

    "Elmo knows where you live!"

    The Count appareance was basically one of the only 2 funny things in the episode. I also like how they lampooned Maurice Sendak for letting Bell Atlantic use his "Wild things" for advertisements. Other than that, it was pretty forgettable.

    Aww, I must have missed that part of the episode. I saw it, but not all of it. Darn.
