    Hi dere, y'all!

    I've known that in 1977, they did a coloring book called "Who's Who on Sesame Street". They kept reissuing it from 1989 to fairly recently. They updated it each time, with Muppets and humans alike.

    Can anyone please tell me what specific characters appeared in the original version from 1977?

    Thanks, as always, and have a good night!

    I bought this coloring book in 2000, but I can't tell you who was in the original. There were some interesting characters in the one I bought, like Placido Flamingo, Ruthie (the human), Grover's mommy, and I want to say Polly Darton and Don Music. They even had Mr. Hooper. Those older characters were in a section that was supposed to be like a photo album.

    Wish I knew the answer to your question though. Sorry.

    OK... A little history for you BlueAM.

    The Who's Who on Sesame Street coloring books actually started with a pop-up book called Who AmI? Still have that one, along with two subsequent coloring books in my SS text library. The coloring books are More Who's Who on Sesame Street and The New Who's Who on Sesame Street. Can't look the individual characters featured in each fright now, got noone to help me with that here at home. But will try to help you out with character lists from those books ASAP.

    BTW: It was those books which are partially influencial on what you've come to know as my Muppet Listings.

    Nice list of SS residents, if you ask me!

    Now, is it possible that your coloring book is up for trade?

    Thanks for your help, and have a good night!

    Lucky. :p

    I was kind of surprised that some of these even had their own pages, including:

    Bad Bart and Bad Barney (who's Bad Barney?)
    The Busby Twins
    Willie the Hot Dog Man
    The Witches (how did they even get in the book?!)
    Sherlock Hemlock
    Mr. Chatterly
    Granny Fanny Nesselrode
    The Salesman

    I'd love to see the pictures of these characters.

    P.S.: BlueAM, if it's up for trade, be prepared to battle with me. :D

    Does anybody know who's included in the latest addition? I can't find a copy of it anywhere, and I'd love to find it.
