A few quick Videos of Puppets details worth mentioning, just in-case there’s anyone out there who reads this blog.

  1. It was proposed by yvi-kitteh in the Muppet of the Month comments section that there should be a vote for the next Muppet of the Month. Okay. Please feel free to drop suggestions in the comments; I’d love to hear ideas!
  2. The site layout has been a little schizophrenic lately. Sorry about that. But this is it, I promise. Final layout. And, you may have noticed Chester (whose beautiful mug is used without permission).

This is Chester Too

He is our mascot. So, if we ever play against another website, Chester will be there doing flips and stuff. He is a Sifl and Olly character. And is great.

And, as long as we’re talking about Danny Boy, here are Beaker, Animal and the Swedish Chef singing. They make an especially good trio because they are all (1) neurotic, (2) incomprehensible and (3) often have little idea of what is going on around them. 🙂

These aren’t puppets, I guess, but it’s still relevant content, and anyway it’s hilarious and really well produced.  Three words: brilliant, brilliant and brilliant.  Especially the whole Leonard Nemoy / William Shatner thing.

And, in any case, this is possibly the only post I’ve made that doesn’t violate copyright laws.  Well, at least not as bad.

Aka Manamana. Here is a look back through the years at this infectious Swedish skat song made immortal by the Muppets. There are four videos in all; you can use the “read the rest of this post” link to see them all.  It all began on Sesame Street, sometime around here:

And then, everything turned pink in this later video:
