    Hello Sesame Puppet Collectors!

    Great discussion about the original Sesame puppets. I've been a Muppet memorabilia collector for quite awhile and have posted some of my collection online, including the Sesame Puppets. I've noticed several variations of Ernie and Bert, and I have posted pictures of these along with my "Canadian" Count puppet (with the plastic head). Here is my site:


    Hope to hear more about these awesome puppets from other collectors. This has been quite informative. Bye for now.

    Never seen a paco puppet, but did want to great job to MuppetMikey on his detailed website. I have many of the same puppets and figures and enjoyed learning more about them, and some of the stuff I don't have.

    Abelardo the Dragon and Paco the Parrot: These are both Leli Ledy releases. The Abelardo puppet, my own "Grail" ,is obviously a product of the late 1970s, and he received extremely limited release. He has a plain orange plastic combline on his head and back and a fur yellow/orange body, but his eyes are very nicely sculpted with raised painted pupils (a bit like big bird). His hands where pvc. The Paco Puppet is even more rare then Abelardo. He was made from green fur and also a plasic hear. Both had the hairline glued to the hear like Grover... Only the front was shown all pvc.

    Tocatta and Mordicus: These are both Vicma releases, and one is more valuable than the next. All have rubber faces with nicely detailed clothing and look like the early style of the U.S. puppets. Tocatta has an enormous head contasting his body, with an enourmes orange beak and large open eyes. Mordicus looks like Oascar but his head is a pvc covered in dark blue fur. His eyes are lined with a yellow and green circle arround it and the nose is lighter blue pvc. All of the Vicma "human" puppets also have weird, more-human hand sculpts

    Those are cool looking. Did they ever have Abelardo and Paco in their bird and grouch form too or just these?
