Another TV encyclopedia, by the same author, lists Bill Cosby, Marilyn Sokol (more specifically as her "Aunt May" character from the "Big Bird Goes to Camp" shows), Zoe Hall (who?), and voice actress Heather North (as a character called "Ellie Jane," whom I'm assuming was an animated character) as part of the main cast.
Jeepers! Heather was the voice of Daphne Blake of Scooby-Doo fame for decades. I didn't know she voiced other characters as well.

You know, the generally misspelling/misuse of "Miss," "Ms.," and "Mrs." is a common problem with a lot of people, it's not just a problem excluded to Miss Piggy.

I was watching a clip of Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Ethel Merman, and Paul Williams on Dinah! (posted by the amazing @gavry3 ) when Paul refers to Fozzie Bear as "Fonzie Bear". I had to watch it over and over again because it caught me off guard that Paul of all people would call Fozzie "Fonzie". :smirk:

Yeah! That happened with the Jay Leno one, too.

It was really early on in Paul's association with the Muppets, so I can forgive it. Nowadays, he'd maybe be the one (politely) correcting people.

Man, I really hate that they got rid of all the adult characters on Avenue Street. Mary, Louis, Suzette, Jordan, Bop, Jenny- those guys were my childhood. :frown:
