And Floyd once had little swirls too...kewl...
ok who was it and what does it mean???
Thanks, I never saw the original sketch but I heard the song on a Muppet Hits Tape I have and on Muppet Central Radio. Are you sure it's not Scooter it sounds an awful lot like him? Anyway, I still have no idea what it means, so will somebody please tell me so that the bearded lady from the sketch can leave my house.
The singer was voiced by Jim Henson, and he actually sounds like Jim Henson, not Scooter.
okay, okay so it's not scooter
Okay so it's not Scooter I still don't know what Pachalafaka means?
Nor do I know what goes "pucka pucka pucka squeedely boink, pucka pucka squeedely dee.
And I am extremely befuddled as to what a Mahnamahna is.
That's easy. Wembley goes pukka pukka pukka pukka squeedily boink!
: "The question is, what is a Mahna Mahna?"
: "The question is, WHO CARES?"
I have a question, actually. Know how Sesame Street episode numbers are in the thousands? Does that mean that there's been that number of episodes, or it is just some kind of catalogueing system?
Catulouge i believe Season 1 was like 101, 102 , 103....... now its 3601 3602 3603......
What would you do if you saw a Muppet on the street like they are in the movies?
That's an awesome question. It depends a lot on who the character was. If it was someone like Uncle Deadly, I would keep my distance but still keep my eye on him like when kids see a big spider in their room. If it was Telly or Fozzie or Big Bird, I would run up and give them a huge hug and ask if they want to come over to my house and hang out.
Like BEAR said, depends on who, and what sort of mood I was in. Maybe I'd run up and hug them, ask for their autograph, so on and so forth... Maybe I'd just stare and rub my eyes and pinch myself and a bunch of other crazy stuff to see if I was dreaming... Maybe I'd be a real goofball and play some harmless trick on them... Nah, I'd probably run up and hug them and kiss them and be all OH MY GOSH I LOVE YOU YOU'RE SO AWESOME CAN I PLEASE HAVE YOUR AUTOGRAPH?!?!?!?
i'd go up to them and ask them if they need help w/ thier next movie Muppets go midevil
Take my advice that would not be the wisest course of action. I speak from experience.
I'd probably say. "Hey, you see that pig over there, it looks a lot liek Miss Piggy."
and my friend would laugh and say, "Nothing like her. The nose is wrong. See?"
"YEah, well she has more make up in movies."
What would a frig or pog look like
Okay I have given up on ever finding out what pachalafaka means. I have another question, this one is for those of you with graphics skills. In the third Muppet Movie "The Muppets Take Manhattan" Kermit & Piggy got married, or rather Piggy tricked him into it, by having a real minister play the minister for the part in their play where the two main characters get married. Anyway, since they are married the next obvious result is children, or to be more correct frigs and pogs. Now just what might a frig or a pog look like? Any suggestions. You can either draw it or photomanipulate it, just put in your ideas.
Animal is not human.
He is not an animal.
He is not a monster.
Animal is a Drummer.
Drummers don't completely fall into any of the above groups.
I think Kermit has a collar because he was a lizard at first, and Jim liked the look, so kept it when Kermit became a frog Now I still dont have any replies on where Gonzo's chilli pepper suit comes from? Could it have been the Jim Henson Hour, or was the clothes created just for publicity and toys?
Bouncing baby figs... **snickers**
If Miss Piggy and Kermit had kids, the boys would all be frogs and the girls would all be pigs.
The first time that I remember seeing it was in Muppet Classic theatre (although technically he wore it in the Kermit Unpigged promo shown in the Muppet Classic Theatre video). On The Jim Henson Hour, he wore the white shirt, grey vest and red tie that he wore throguhout the 1980s (in The Muppets Take manhattan, A Muppet family christmas, and other '80s muppet productions).
This leads me to ask a question. How come Gonzos regular outfit has changed over the years? First he regularly wore a purple tuxedo, then he alternated it with a bluie shirt and black vest (seen in the muppet movie and later seasons of The Muppet Show), then he wore a white shirt, gray vest, and red tie, then he wore various chilli pepper suits (in Muppet Classic Theatre, Muppets Tongith, and Muppets From Space, and I think he also wore it at the end of The Muppets Wizard of Oz), and in It's a very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie he wore a blue (or is it gray?) sweater, which i think he has also worn elsewhere (I don't know for sure). Why is this?
I don't think so
Kermit himself suggested the frig or pog idea once on an episode of the Johnny Carson Show right after MTM. He said he couldn't get married to Miss Piggy because he'd have "little frigs or pogs running around" Incidentally I came up with an idea once as to what this creature might look like and I drew it on a Macintosh computer, however I have since lost the disk and changed to an IBM clone made by Compaq. I did print it out, but I don't have access to a scanner, so I can't show you guys my idea yet.
abiraniriba, I believe the term was fig, not frig, if memory serves correct.
I have some questions: Who in the world is:
a) Harvey Kneeslapper
b) Herbert Berdsfoot
c) The Amazing Mumford
because I do not remember and/or have never seen sketches with these guys, ever!
