    Sometimes Bunsen calls Beaker "Beakie", and yes, believe it or not, there is a different Muppet by the name of Beakie (in TMS ep. 307 featuring Alice Cooper).......

    I get annoyed when people refer to 2011's "The Muppets" as "The Muppet Movie". Yes, it's a Muppet movie, but there's already a Muppet movie with that title and there are several Muppet movies.

    I hate when people refer to any puppet they see as "a Muppet".

    Burt is Bert's evil, Canadian/Mid Western cousin who can't control himself and has enlarged eyes.

    In the UK they tend to call you a muppet if your being silly or stupid.
    Am I the only one around here who remembers the deadpan muppets!?

    *Bumps into thread!*

    The top misnaming name of Muppet/Fraggles people do is "Gobo" can be misprounced easily and can slur it also. Plus, "Golez" the puppeteer of Gonzo/Bunsen/Boober/Philo can get misprounced too. Now that can be pretty annoying.

    Why do some people today insist that Muppet Babies is anime?

    Cuz it totally was until they switched to that ghastly Korean (or was it Taiwanese) firm. Not only was it animated in Japan, but it was animated by one of the top firms, Toei, mainly out of some deal Marvel productions had with them. They also animated G.I. Joe and Transformers in that era. Plus, there is that scene in Gonzo's Video Show where Miss Piggy totally gives the "Peace-su Peace-su" finger pose for the cameras.

    I heard someone misidentify Floyd as Animal yesterday. Now I can add that to the list of Muppets that have been misidentified as Animal:

    Floyd, Dr. Teeth, Sweetums, Mahna Mahna, Zoot, Sam The Eagle, Crazy Harry, Thog, and Lew Zealand.

    Yes, those are ALL real occurrences of Muppets being called Animal. And yes, I had sit there and PRETEND it was funny while correcting them at the same time.

    What makes so annoyed is when I find the comments from "Youtube" that say "he must be on weed. WHAT? No way! They don't do any substances. They just got probleams and their own minds. Grrrrrrrr!

    Those people have never even try to watch Muppet-related productions (that includes Fraggle Rock). :sigh:
