What Kind of Animal is Beauregard?

    I couldn't find a thread like this when I searched, so if I'm missing something, forgive me.

    What kind of animal is Beauregard? I don't think he's a "monster", as he lacks the typical characteristics of one; no wild fur or hair, no giant teeth, no claws. He's obviously not a whatnot or a whatever, so what is he? Muppet Wiki has a bit on their talk page copied from a book which mentions him living in a burrow, which would seem to indicate he's a type of mole (?), but he seems too big for that.

    What do you guys think?

    I've been saying for years that somewhere in the world of the internet I read that he was an anteater, and for the longest time I accepted that as fact. I don't know if he is (he doesn't quite have anteater qualities), and I haven't been able to find that source since. (No idea what source it was or how accurate it may have been.

    Now that you say it, I'm kinda liking the mole thing. He does seem to have some mole characteristics, so it could be a possibility.

    Toughpigs once asked this question to henson.com. Henon.com's answers was "Beauregard is Beauregard".

    I always thought that he was like a bug or something but in the one song sung by Sam the Eagle he is called a lump.

    I haven't ever seen that species in the wild before! Wonder where it prefers to live? :oops:

    Yeah, then we can find out what Clifford is

    I think Clifford is supposed to be a humanoid character. Though Kermit thought he kind of looked like a catfish (an episode of MT), and Gonzo and Rizzo thought he resembled a dust buster (the MFS commentary).

    I can see him being a catfish

    I'll say he's a demented anteater:oops:

    I can understand where that does come from, and that is a good point to bring up, yet on the other hand, is it possible for humanoids to be sort of furry?

    Though he does resemble both in some ways, Clifford is most definitely a humanoid. Everything about him screams that.

    Though I don't refer to him as one, Bo reminds me of a porcupine more than anything.

    I always thought he's a bear. Oh wow, I never thought about that…
    Maybe it's like Snuffy, where Beau is a Beauregard?
