    Don Music and How Now Brown Cow are completely done for because, bad influence and dated. Same with it, Miami Mice. Plus Kermit is done by Mat Vogel now. The only characters I can seeing returning are Biff, Sully, and Sherlock Hemlock.

    Late reply, but I think How Now could actually come back as a one time gig to still parody some 80's songs/music videos.... Let's not forget, last year we got an 80's mashup video.

    Outside the cameo appearance in Season 40 and voiced by Jerry Nelson one last time. It was a touching moment to see as a fan.

    Plus he got a plush from Gund for the 35th anniversary

    Man there are so many characters i want to return to the show including Hoots the Owl. If it was possible I want the Around the Corner set and characters to come back.

    From the stories I heard, they can’t bring back the Around the Corner side due to both studio rental cost and some of the set being destroyed.

    That's sad :( but if they really wanted to they could do a spin off about around the corner with new characters on HBO and have cameos from the sesame gang.

    If I was to run a spin-off for Sesame Street, I would focus more on some of the secondary characters like Telly, Herry, The Count, Ernie, etc. So they don’t become forgotten.

    Yeah that would be a great idea too! It seems like they are making a bigger comeback in season 49 especially count, ernie, and bert.

    The fact we live in a time where those are "secondary characters". :cry:

    Okay to be fair Herry never got any level over secondary.

    You know, it’s a stretch, but why not have some reccuring Old West baddies like Sinister Sam or Bad Bart return?

    Granted, I could tell both were originally intended to be one-season characters (Sam in season 3 and Bart in season 5, both who eventually made comebacks in new clothes/facial features), but still, just a suggestion.

    Heck. Why not even the Beetles?

    Doing a brief Forgetful Jones moment could be possible if they don’t let him speak through it. That could work, right ?

    I guess so but, if feels weird without hearing Forgetful’s voice.

    Yes, but he also had a silent cameo in Elmo Saves Christmas.

    I think it would be great if Tau Bennett got a character of his own either a new character or a old character like Murray Monster or Hoots the owl.

    Murray ain't comin' back. And I doubt Hoots would either, but if Gladys and Herry came back, maybe? But now that Tau Bennett is a credited performer, i'm definitely interested to see what kinds of things he'll get to do.
  18. MuppetSpot

    MuppetSpot Well-Known Member

    I’d rather see characters that have longevity return like Sherlock Hemlock or Benny Rabbit.

    Who is Tau playing on the show?

    He's just a background performer / right hander.
