    Pink soap dish does NOT equal alternative life style.

    Pink Flamingos don't...DO THEY?

    What I enjoy about Henson’s work is it's abstract quality. We relate to the characters and read our own perceptions into them. That is how they were intended.

    They are not gay, they are not straight. They are puppets that we can think of in how we best relate to them. You know, I]to me [/I] (wait for it, this is good) Ernie and Bert are gay. To someone else they are not. No one is right or wrong no matter what the brass at Henson says (they are the ones that gave us skinny Piggy and blue-nosed Gonzo). The one thing that is certain is that they are lighthearted happy characters that should make us smile! Well, except for Bert. LOL! Poor Bert.

    muppets are not gay

    i take offense that you, as a moderator, would say, and I quote, the muppets "are gay".

    if you are a muppet hater then don't be on the site

    Dear Spidey,

    What he said was;

    "to me Ernie and Bert are gay."

    Not that they ARE indeed. I personally go based on what JHC says, or CTW says.

    Like, Schulz said he only kept the comic strips of Peanuts history as their history, not anything animated, so that's what I also go by. The cartoons are entertaining to me, sure; but, to me per Schulz, the only chronology I pay attention to is the strips. Thus, the little red haired girl was NEVER SEEN!

    But this is MY perception. You may have a different one, as would someone else, and folks are welcome to it.

    But, I won't have pink flamingos in MY front yard!! :D

    Um, I hate to assume that you are ignorant, but he meant the term "gay" in a different manner. Not as in "lame".

    What exactly were your SAT scores that allowed you into college?

    Don't even bother, Fozzie! Spiderjuevenile is harrassing me lately, and I reported to the moderator. I hope he has the wisdom enough to cut it the heck out!!!!!!!

    Out of curiosity, is this "merchandise" licensed? I'm sure one wouldn't be silly enough to go posting on a site that they manufacture merchandise without a license from the company who owns the rights. Especially when there are many people of a board with multiple ties to that company

    Why would calling someone gay be hateful? We have many types of members here. Young, old, American, British, gay, straight and more. Henson’s work was about everyone getting along together, not your mean-spirited words. I think I see where the true hatefulness is here and obviously you did not completely read my post.

    You have been rude, argumentative and rather schizophrenic since you got here. If this is a prediction of how you act I don't think this board is for you. You claim to have started this thread to "ask questions" but turn around and yell at people for the answers they give. That is not acceptable behavior here. And any type of name-calling will not be tolerated.

    Since my other hero, Schulz, kicked the bucket on me :mad: :( I have been in contact with his offices. Our cartoonists' association did a cartoon art show dedicated to him and I wanted their approval on our invites and show and was in contact with their product people from Creative Associates, namely Paige Braddock, Erin, and Edna (his secretary). All SUPER nice people. Including Sparky's wife, Jeannie!

    I have GOT to go to the new Schulz museum!! But MONEY, the evil creature, keeps me from going!!!

    so YOU actually think they're gay???

    well, the truth is, it's NOT just Ernie and Bert. if there's a duo of two guys, people usually joke about them being gay. people joke about Batman and Robin, Spongebob and Patrick, Beavis and Butthead (even though they laugh at the word 'gay'), etc

    I said that such things of an abstract nature are however the particular viewer relates to them. They remind me of gay couples I know. Someone else might see something different (or the opposite) in them and that's valid too. I was not making an absolute.

    i always think of Ernie and Bert as the TWO STOOGES. But they're like the Three Stooges if you count Rubber Duckie! Bert's like Moe, Ernie's like Curly, and Rubber Duckie's like Larry.

    LOL! That certainly works too.

    Fraggle Rock was created to promote world peace, so obviously the Muppets can get away with it. Everyone loves Fraggle Rock, right?
