It happened last month. Just look back a little.
(speaking nonsense Swedish talk)
The Muppet Central main page should still be sporting the banner for the anniversary.
I have a joke book.
I have some loose Jello okay.*makes Jello wabbling noise*
I forgot to get back to you on that. Sorry. Crazy Harry does have kind of a peutrid greenish hue, but you're right - he's rather green in his smilie. I suppose we chose that to make him pop more than that grayish color he seems to be. I have submitted a toned-down version that is being reviewed (along with a couple other tweaked smilies). It probably won't be that big of a change. He's still green-ish.
It appears that all but one smilie has been approved. It's a space thing and I'm not partial to the one that might get the shaft. I still hope he doesn't. At least two of the smilies are going to be unexpected. One's a Sesame, the other is...something else. Also, there's a super one that many have been requesting. We'll see. It takes a while for Phillip to upload these dodads because it requires taking the forum offline to wire them in. There will be a total of 35-36 smilies in all.
Hmm... I wonder who that could be. Does anybody have a guess? Anybodeeeee?
Wait, 35 smilies... **does some quick mental math** You are adding seven more? Wow! You are Phil and certainly spoiling us. Thank you for doing all that work, Jamie. That is just awesome.
And to think, I would have been fully satisfied with just the addition of Rizzo!
Even more new smilies are now on-line...
You'll have to stay and for them all.
Yah more awesome smilies
and the last one. ( I think )
These are all so awesome!
EEEEEE! I love them, I love them, I'm so excited to finally have this one: I have been wanting one like that forever! I love and I'm pretty sure the Count will be excited to have one that represents his namesake.
Huh? Will I? What's the rundown of these new smilies? And how come I'm the last to know about these things though I'm part of the staff?
Will these questions ever be answered? Tune in next time...
Same MC-time, same MC-channel.
The new ones Ed are Big Bird for wisdom, Cookie Monster for insatiable, Super Grover for super, Sherlock Hemlock for search, The Count for batty, a Doozer for busy and some sort of bird I'm not sure who he is (not up on my Dark Crystal and Labrynth characters I guess) for scary.
Thanks Beth! My guess is that's a Skexus. Wonder what the one about space was. If I could use smilies, you know who would be placed here.
Thank you Jamie.
Wow, awesome new smilies! Thank you, Jamie!
Yup, it's a Skeksis. Glad you guys enjoy these. Before I share this one I have to state that there's no way to include it. I'm just showing it to you for fun or if you want to grab it for your own use. This was the wild card of the bunch. I was told to pitch 7-8 smilies and this was 8. I really do like him, but there is not really a need for this one: Johnny Fiama (eyebrow raised) skeptical.
My personal two faves are the Skeksis and Sherlock. Also note that Pepe, Rizzo, Gonzo and Harry have been slightly shined-up. It appears these are now locked-in. There are characters I would have liked, but there's limited space and limited options for emotions that can be conveyed through a tiny smilie.
EDIT: I had one for Boober, but his emotion wasn't needed as Gobo represents that. It snowballs after that into changing Gobo then adding Mokey and so on. Boober's my favorite Fraggle and one of my favorite Muppets. I thought long and hard about including him years ago and revisited that choice again. He just didn't make the cut.
have one for Boober.
this one in my favorite
What does insatiable mean?
Yay, this is so cool! And it's so hard to pick a favorite of these newbies. I think I'll go as my fave, followed very closely by and and Grover and... well, all the rest of 'em! I'm very impressed, they're really great! Thank you again, Jamie! They're awesome!
And Kuriboh Man, to answer your question, "insatiable" means never being satisfied, or always wanting more. I hope that helps!
