Hello out there, this is squirrelboy.

I have sort of silly question to ask, but does anyone remember a brick wall that the muppets either sat on or used during their skits? And if so, what year was it taken out, or why was it taken out for that matter?

Just wondering....

Your thoughts would greatly be appreacited, thanks.

I don't know when it was taken out, but the wall was originally meant to hide the Muppet performers from the audience (so that they'd see only the puppets). The Workshop must have found more effective ways to hide the performers when they decided to stop using the wall.

I don't recall the wall ever really being "removed". There's still brick walls. Sometimes they use tables.

Definitely! It's even been used in parodies of the show too like on the "Bird Flu" sketch on MadTv and on The Fairly Oddparents it was used in the "Channel Chasers" special. Did I mis any?

The brick wall is still used in the park scenes.
