What's with the Sesame Street names of the moderators?

Recommended Posts

That was funny, It's a pity that The Muppet Show wasn't aired on Israel when I was young enough to watch it.

You're never too old to watch it.

I liked fraggle rock as a kid more than the mullets, but the mullets were much more popular and for most more memorable.

Muppet is a term coined by Jim Henson to describe his marionette puppets (marionette + puppet = muppet). The term generally applies to all of the marionette puppets that Henson and co. created. The term is more often associated with characters from the Muppet Show. Fraggles and Seasame Street characters are still muppets though.

...and Elmo was in Seasame Street. He's a Seasame Street character who happens to be a muppet, just like Big Bird, Oscar, Kermit and many others.

Great explanation and you are correct, except Big Bird is not a muppet, he's a guy in a costume, more like a mascot.

This thread is awesome.

Stupid phone.

Turning 'muppets' into 'mullets' is the greatest spell checker mess-up I've ever heard of!

Also, does Prof. Flitwick know we all have different names in real life, whether they've just been changed to muppetesque pseudonyms or not? If not I just TOTALLY destroyed his fragile little world-view ;)

AAAlay yuuuuuuu de wut de wut de hay! BORK BORK BORK! (Just thought I'd translate the entirety of my post into the only dialect of Swedish I know, seeing as how this is an Int'l board).

Can it, Scouts. :tongue:

They are both Jim Henson creations. They are both official Muppet projects, so yes, Sesame Street characters are Muppets. Sesame Street is the children's show and The Muppet Show was an adult variety show. It originally aired on Saturday evenings.

We used to go to my aunt's house and watch it every Saturday. We would eat pretzel logs and drink pop, and I would play with DUPLO and watch the Muppets. It was my favorite day of the week. :cry_happy:
