    It is actually spelled Goelz, as one person above seems to have spelled it wrong. And I also have always pronounced it "goals," mainly because that's how I heard Brian Henson pronounce it in a time when I didn't know how to say it. Before that I had called him "go-ells"

    I just found out that Jefferson Airplane DID NOT play the music on the Jazzy Spies cartoons from the early days of Sesame Street. I had always thought that, since vocalist Grace Slick was with JA at the time. I found a Muppet Wiki link stating the real names of the Jazzy Spies musicians:

    Also, I will throw my hat into the "mispronouncing Dave Goelz's name" ring. As a kid, I said Go-Lez :concern:! :oops:. For years, I was kind of :confused: about how to say his name, and now that I look back, it wasn't very :cool: on my behalf. :sigh:...
    (note who's in the smilies...)

    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.
