    Four other Sesame Muppets were on Sesamstrasse. They were Little Bird, a brown wolf, a female grouch from Elmo in Grouchland, and a sheep.

    I remember talking to my boyfriend about what it was like in Spain... There I think it was called 'Barrio Sesamo' and the full-body costumes (like Big Bird) had a female bird, a big hedgehog/porcupine, and this brown monster thing (I assume it's still the same these days). A few of the names I remember was that Kermit was Gustavo, Grover was Koko, Cookie Monster was Triki (I think), Oscar was still Oscar... I know Ernie and Bert were also on there, and the Count, but that's all I can remember right now.

    I didn't know the American Sesame Street characters crossed over to different counry's. Also, Da Niao looks exactly like Big Bird. That's strange. The only time I saw international Sesame Street characters on the American Sesame Street was during the New Year's special.

    Japanese SS

    Get ready for Sesame Street merchandise, modified with those big ol' Anime eyes! :zany:

    You'd think they'd have a LoL smiley on here somewhere. Am I missing it?

    Does anyone know if they do actually modify the characters in illustrations for international projects?

    BTW, this is pretty close to LOL :excited: , but Zoe would be a very appropriate addition to the smilie family.

    Here is a link of the first puppeteer of "Samson" on the German Sesamstrasse.
    He now is a puppet builder with his wife and they made a lot of great puppets.

    I was just joking a bit. The stereotype is that everything from Japan has big Anime eyes. So I thought, well then they might do that with the characters over there..because that's what they're used to. Or you know, the Sesame Street characters with huge Anime eyes, would just be kind of wacky.

    Cool. You know what would be so funny, if they did like Muppets of the guys from Rammstein. LoL. Maybe they'd do a video as the Muppets, after all, they seem to be getting into the "The next video will be a big surprise!" kind of trend, with their videos.

    Just after posting this, I started thinking to myself..what a cover of the Sesame Street theme would sound like if Rammstein covered it. I think it'd be pretty cool.

    @ MeepEeep: Wow, that's a great idea... and a bit... well... strange too.
    Why don't you write a letter to their record label and tell them your idea?
    Perhaps it becomes reality :excited:

    The chines big bird a a different puppet though.. They couldn´t have a big bird unless the puppet wasn´t that goodlooking like bb. I have this information from a girl in hong kong.
