It was like so, Triple S. :coy: I should know: I asked that question back when Steve was teaching Muppet-like exercises at the Center. He explained to us that there was an electric mechanism inside the mouth puppet that makes the eyes move rather realistically. However, he's the kinda guy who didn't quite like it, so he seldom used it for Wembley.

Still, this was effective, in accordance to the Steve Whitmire Rule: the less you use robotic effects for a puppet, the more likely audience will notice the incredible effect!

How about that weird from creature from "Junior Sells the Farm". That guy gave me the creeps...and he would always pop out of nowhere with some crazy sound effect. I think he was a frog but I don't know if he had a name. :embarrassed:
I so agree that was a little bit of a freaky episode when I was younger.

Come to think of it, Ma going wide eyed and screaming in terror at the sight of Gobo in the opening credits was always bit unnerving as a child.

I just remembered... I was absolutely terrified of "Incredible Shrinking Mokey"! That Begoony character gave me nightmares as a kid! :eek:
