    Real Old Tom-unknown
    Crazy Harry-performed by Rickey Boyd

    There was also a purple guy with a tall head that i don't know the name or performer of.

    Foo Foo and camillia were both performed by Alice Dennon Vernon. Steve Whitmire had originally performed Foo Foo, and jerry nelson originally performed camillia.

    Were both Old Tom and Real Old Tom in Oz? I was pretty sure there was only one Tom in it, but I couldn't figure out which one it was.

    Here are a couple of other questions I want to know.

    Who performed Sam the Eagle?

    Since Brian didn't play Scooter (or so I hear) who was it?

    Is the Black Dog similar to the Puppet they used for Mad Dog in Dog City (if he was in the special)?

    Eric Jacopson.

    Rickey Boyd.

    No. Black Dog was in Muppet treasure island.

    I knew he was from MTI, but I wonder if that puppet they used as Mad Dog before... it looks similar enough to the animated one. I forget the live action special....

    I didn't think Kevin Clash did Clifford in this one.

    It says he dubbed the voice but was never actually on set:

    I've noticed that in the openning. Steve, Dave, Bill, and Eric were shown as the main Muppeteers. While the rest were shown at the end as secondary Muppeteers. I guess the first four Muppeteers got top billing because they voiced the main characters. Kermit, Fozzie, Piggy, Gonzo, and Pepe.

    Drew Massey as Spotted Dick... sweet!

    For those of you who might be interested, Drew Massey performed Count Blah on Greg the Bunny, as well as several other characters on the short-lived series.

    That and they are the principle Muppeteer staff. Just like how it was always Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Dave Goelz and Richard Hunt as "top billing"

    I haven't seen that yet, I think Mike's Super Short Show is annoying, they show the same clip over and over for about a month before they show I new one. :p

    Thats what they do. Think of it as a regular commercial or trailer on tv. That is basically all it it. They aren't going to do a new one until something new is released.
