    XP I was surprised too. But almost everyone my age (13, 14, 15) says "Pepe! And Animal C:"

    Today, I was talking about Sesame Street with someone. I mentioned that Grover is one of my favorites, and all I got was "...Who's Grover? The green one?" DXX UGH I wanted to facepalm!

    My dad and I were playing some quizzes last night, and we ended up coming across a few Muppet ones, including a quiz just about the Electric Mayhem. I can't believe that they actually said (not as an answer, but as a fun fact in between questions) that Janice was performed by Frank Oz. :p

    This one isn't so much "Muppets" as "Classic Rock", but at a program some other teens and I were watching and voting on some Youtube viral videos, and my submission to the contest was the BoRhap video. Over half of them there admitted that they watched the Muppet movies as a kid, but only one boy and I knew the song. :p

    That's kind of funny cause just eariler today I was thinking about something like that too. I was thinking about how when I was young I honestly thought Muppet Christmas Carol and Treasure Island were original Muppet movies, :). Course now I know better,

    Aren't they? They were movies originated by the Muppets, making them Muppet originals. ;)
  7. There is something that annoys me, but I'm afraid I'm on the losing side of the debate. I don't understand why the Sesame Street Martians are called the Yip-Yips. Well, I understand it, but I think it's wrong. My argument is that I think the martians are saying "yep" and not "yip". Whenever they are affirming something they say "yep" and "uh-huh", and when they find that they are wrong they say "nope" and "uh-uh". Unfortunately, the name Yip-Yips has already been well established. That's even what they are called on the Sesame Street website. However, when they are actually being quoted, as in the recent 40th anniversary book, I want to see it written as "yep"!

    Any thoughts? Am I the only one who cares?

    A comment on The Muppet Studio YouTube page has a person, with a picture of Animal as their avatar no less, saying that thier favorite Muppet was 'Ganzo'. :concern:

    Yeah, I hate when people misspell Gobo Fraggle's name too, or...Gogo.

    That happened to me too. Some little kid thought I was wearing an Elmo shirt once. Wanna hear the worst part? Not only wasn't it Elmo, it wasn't even a Muppet completely. It was Mr. Potatohead from Toy Story.

    This stuff never really bothered me

    Obviously I know the difference between Sesame Street and Muppets, Fozzie not Fonzie, the names of "those old guys from The Muppet Show, etc, but not everyone is as big of a fan as us, and that's fine

    I can see how these things like names and such can easily get mixed up for someone who's not a big fan
  14. This one's a little weird but....
    My little brother thought scooter was a girl ;)

    He's not?

    Actually, this is an arguement settled on Muppet Wiki long ago. The characters are listed on the Wiki as "The Martians." The discussion for that is found here: http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Talk:The_Martians

    On the Dutch Sesamstraat site there's a FAQ section with 14 questions. One of them being "How do I tell Grover and Cookie Monster apart?"

    Come on, how the heck can THAT be a FAQ?

    :insatiable: :super:

    Maybe he was thinking of Skeeter?
  19. i don't think he knows who Skeeter is and i don't think hes ever seen Muppet Babies either.

    Considering I stumbled upon seeing it at Kohls thinking it was an Ernie face shirt... it was orange and had big eyes... and it was completely folded over and I saw it out of the corner of my eye.

    But still... you'd think a little kid could recognize a Toy Story character, especially since the movie was out.
