    His expression might have had something to do with it, was he happy and smiling or was it the 'tater with 'tude picture that is normally seen on Toy Story associated Potato Head merchandise? :confused:

    I was just on another site where they take quizzes and polls, and I found a poll titled "Who's ur favorie muppet's character" (ignore the spelling the creator made) had choices including The Swiss Chef!

    The Swiss Chef!

    I just remembered last night that when I was a kid, my mom told me that Crazy Harry's name was Willie-Go-Boom.

    Okay. I got one. My mom has believed that Frank Oz has performed Kermit at least after Henson's death. Crazy, huh?

    That could be why it was referenced in IVAMCM.

    A friend of mine thought Jim Henson performed ALL of the Muppets. Not really annoying, just sort of amusing.

    Not many people know, Jim had eight hundred arms.

    So... do you pronounce it Peppy or Paypay? I know Peppy is prefered, but isn't Paypay technically correct, as that's the Spanish pronunciation? I've been known to refer to him as both.

    I hate to be one of those schmucks that pronounce foreign words and names with a bad accent, but I once heard the host of a food show pronounce "Churros con Chok'lit" and that has always struck a nerve with me as icky sounding.

    Some instances that irk me since I have to spot these as the moderator in charge of approving new members to the forums...

    animal, without capitalization.
    Er, do you mean Animal?
    Or some particular animal Muppet?

    Just found the second new member to list bluto as their favorite Henson character.
    Again, capitalize proper names of people places or things.
    Also, Bluto is Popeye's antagonistic foil... Ludo is the big yeti-like monster from Labyrinth.

    Was it on www.funtrivia.com? If so, I think that's the same one I took a few weeks ago. At least (one the one I'm thinking of, at least) it was something in between questions, not actually the answer to a question.

    I don't know about anyone else. but I've been having trouble with this stupid new keyboard I got a while back. Sometimes the lousy shift key won't work right. Sometimes things are slightly to the left of where they should be.

    And I've noticed a LOT of people with capitalization problems in their posts. Sometimes it's not something on purpose as it is an accident.

    Mine usually pop up in youtube comments, so:
    1."Man, Lips is good!" or " I love Janet's voice"
    2. "Monster's the best!"
    3. Remember that girl whatnot in "Rama Lama Ding Dong"? Somebody thought it was Ms. Piggy.
    No offense if anyone here wrote these comments, although I doubt it.

    Okay, I guess I'll admit it:

    I used to often call Sweetums "Snookums" by mistake.

    *gasp*

    I got one for you...

    I've been working on an exhibit about Sesame Street for our library. One of the things I built was a 3D Baker. He's in mid-fall, the 10 chocolate cakes are splattered everywhere on the stairs, there's printouts of the numbers on the stairs with a huge 10 at the top of the stairs. Who else could it be but the baker?

    One of my co-workers got it right away. "I remember him! The baker guy who kept falling down the stairs!"

    So, another co-worker comes up to us and sees the 3D baker.

    "That's cool."

    "Do you remember the baker on Sesame Street?" asks the co-worker who got the reference.

    "Yeah."

    "So what did the baker on Sesame Street always do?"

    "I remember! He goes 'bork, b-bork, b-bork, bork. Right?"
    :rolleyes:

    Bluto and Brutus are actually 2 different characters. And it's a very long, involved, and silly story as to why...
