Sesame Family Robinson – From making Muppets to Raising Moppets

Word of the Day: Muppets!

The Sesame Street website recently has revamped its Muppet section, and it’s well worth mentioning. It’s like taking a walk down Sesame Street. They’ve done biographies and links to videos of over 75 Muppets from the last 42 years. Not only are there classic characters, but also Muppets I’ve hardly heard of except in old stories: Clementine, Harvey Kneeslapper, Little Chrissie, and best of all, Sam the Robot. It’s really worth the time to click on some of the oldies but goodies. Anybody remember Colambo? Wait until you hear the Peter Falk sheep! And Biff and Sully? Lefty the Salesman? Placido Flamingo? They’re all there with video clips to match. If you’re a Muppet aficionado, or even if you’re just getting to know everybody, this new, upgraded Muppet section is for you!

Like your family we have twins, boy/girl, that turned three last month. I saw your blog entry for January and it looks like we have something in common, potty training twins. Like one of your girls, my son WILL NOT pee in the potty but his sister was doing well until she caught on to "Bubbie" not trying. I was just letting things run their course but our local pre-schools/mommy day out programs require the children to be potty trained and this mommy needs a day out. Bribery isn't working. Have you had any success?

How often is the telly puppet renewed or replaced?

I read in 40 Years of Life on the Street about an incident involving Snuffy's puppet where a sombrero caused the wood frame to collapse on you and Bryant Young. Did they rebuild the puppet after that or did they just make a new one?

I just wanted to say thanks for the blog. My daughter Kylie (who just turned two yesterday) loves to ask if we are going to see "the babies." Thank you so much to you and Marty for bringing the joy of Sesame Street into our lives every day.

I've noticed that there are fewer Muppets and people in an episode now than there were twenty years ago. Does everyone show up on the set for filming days or only certain ones? Who decides who gets to play the Anything Muppets? There are some voices I hear more than others.
