    The smiles were Gonzo, Miss Poogy (I think), Bunsen Honeydew, Zoot, and Boober Fraggle.

    That Beauregard, not Miss Poogy.

    Aww rats! I'm sorry! I probably didn't see the smile more I guess. My bad!

    As a kid, I went through a period when I thought the Koozebanean creatures were called "Galle-Oop-Oops".

    Yeah. Smilies of the Moopets might be pretty creepy.

    There actually are custom made Moopet smilies around here.

    Here's a mistake I used to make: since Frank Oz had left SST, I had always thought that Eric Jacobson took over the role. It wasn't until a year or two ago that I realized that David Rudman actually was recasted into the role. :oops:

    According to wikipedia (emphasis on wikipedia, for obvious reasons) Eric briefly performed Cookie, but Sesame Workshop decided they wanted more interaction between Cookie and Grover, and thus David wound up with Cookie.

    Again, wikipedia (the land of misfit edits).

    We have a much better wiki to spend our time on rather than wikipedia. :p

    Back when I was young and watched Fraggle Rock during its first run on HBO, I used to think that the name of Gobo's uncle was "Traveling Mac", instead of "Traveling Matt"....

    I could bnot say Gobo's Uncle name right either and I called him, "Mark" instead of "Matt." Boy, nostalga just always comes back to me.

    Um... I think you used nostalgia in the wrong context...

    Come to think of it, I did too.

    I think she's saying that when she was a kid, she always called him "Uncle Mark". That just so happened to really bring back memories of watching FR when she was a kid.

    Oh... ok. I was a bit confused. Sometimes its hard to understand what people are saying on the internet. ;)

    Whoever wrote the Wikipedia article for "Muppet Treasure Island" has some of the worst grammar (a lot of redundancy, a frequent absence of periods and commas, and what's up with constantly capitalizing "island" and "treasure map"? Not to mention a large share of "every day" grammar, as opposed to "proper" grammar) . I'm editing it right now. No idea why (possibly the Grammar Nazi in me?). As you said, we have a much better Wikia around.
