They're still Muppets too, just a separate entity.
yeah thats what i was thinking but still lol
I really hate it when people call Kermit "Mr Green head, flipper feet"...it's never actually happened yet but it would REALLY annoy me!
Yeah, it's amusing how some people have the knowledge enough to know that characters like Big Bird, Elmo, Ernie and Bert, Cookie Monster, etc are Muppets as well, just separate from the other Muppets, then there are some people out there who think they are all one and the same, like David Hyde Pierce saying his favorite character is "Animal from Sesame Street" or someone talking about "That Cookie Monster from The Muppet Show", etc. THEN some people say the characters from SST are NOT Muppets at all, which there seems to be more and more of in recent years.
I have just lost all respect for David Hyde Pierece.
Did we respect DHP ? o.o I think I skipped a step. lol
I also know that now, because of legal issues, we're not supposed to refer to characters outside of the Classic Muppets owned by Disney as "Muppets" (with the exception of the SST Muppets for obvious reasons), but I still say if they're associated with Jim or his company, they are always "Muppets" to me, as opposed to "The Jim Henson Company Puppets".
I'm with you. If it is associated with Jim Henson, then I'm calling it a Muppet. It's HIS word and HIS work so there.
Even S.S. and Fraggles!
Lol well, I used to love Niles on Frasier and that ship has now officially sailed
Often times even though I know this, I will tell people that this character is from Sesame Street, not the Muppets, for the reason that from experience I've found that explaining that he is a Muppet, but not the same kind of Muppet just makes people more confused about the Muppets. It's easier on their brain to just make them two separate things.
Friends at school are always talking about how I'm obsessed with Sesame Street, and other kiddy shows. Though i do like SS, I favor the Muppets more. Even though I explain that now SS and the Muppets are technically different, they still make fun of the fact that I like puppets.
I would'nt think that would be so irratating but if he had just said elmo I would be a little ticked!
Yeah at least he asked about Ernie and Bert too, hehe.
Be grateful folks... remember, they WANTED Elmo, at least to do a cameo, but, if you can believe or not, they COULDN'T AFFORD HIM.
I'm sure it's already been said but...
VEGGIE MONSTER. I just hate it when people say that there is no more Cookie Monster anymore. It just bugs the crap out of me.
I've tried doing my part in trying to let people know there IS NO VEGGIE MONSTER...
Err...what exactly is Cookie Monster saying? I got "But It's Wrong!" but the first part to me sounded like "Oion ad tood" or something like that.
Sounded like "Ain't that cute...BUT IT'S WRONG!" to me
You guys need to educate yourselves and watch some 2 Stupid Dogs. -_-
Bleh...2 Stupid Dogs is just...too stupid for me
