You know one of the things I kind of knew about The Muppets was their eyes where made of some kind of plastic material (excluding the Land of Gorch Muppets of course which were made of glass). I know that the first Kermit's eyes was a pin pong ball cut in half but I'm just curious about not only the Kermits after that or the other characters. The eyes always looked custom made plastic wise. The only thing I can think of is plastic spoons. So what are they made out of? For some reason I also wanted to ask, I'm not sure what it was but on a Sesame Street Documentry (I think it was the A&E one") when they were talking about how Steve Whitmire took over Kermit and Ernie, there's a clip where a puppet captian I think they are called or a puppet ringler, the person who prepairs the puppets before they are taken by the puppeteer for filming. Someone was cleaning Ernie's eye for a breif moment. Anyone know what I'm talking about? What is that? Just curious if that was some kind of cleaner that polishes the plasticy material the eyes are made from?
