I have a hard time with classifying some of these as Creature Shop shows, even if technically maybe they are.

The Ghost of Faffner Hall includes a lot of Muppet characters in the background -- penguins and monsters and stuff. I think Dinosaurs might have some crossover characters too.

My question, really, is: Do we consider Fughetta Faffner a Muppet character, or a Creature Shop character? How about Mother Goose, Baby Sinclair or Howard Handupme? Personally, I'd like to call them Muppet characters, because I think they have a lot in common with the Muppets that the folks from Farscape and The StoryTeller don't.

It's really more about style and taste -- I think of the funny, puppety shows as Muppet shows, and the more serious, creature-y shows as Creature Shop shows, even if that's not strictly accurate. But I think Faffner Hall is a legitimate gray area. Anybody have thoughts? -- Danny Toughpigs 19:01, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

I think the answer to this question can be handled when we agree on what a Muppet is. Is Sir Didymus a Muppet? Why not? What makes Sweetums a Muppet, but not Earl Sinclair? How about Gorgs or Gelflings?
I was trying to explain this to a co-worker recently. He kept challenging me and trying to catch me making a mistake, but luckily I was able to keep up by pulling answers out of my butt.
But it's a question we should have defined in our "Fan Bible" or whatever you want to call it. -- Scarecroe 19:16, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Exactly. Do you want to post on Current events about it? We should probably have everybody discuss this. -- Danny Toughpigs 19:40, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Actually, now that I've started playing around with the Creature Shop Characters category, I'm making my peace with it. I guess it makes sense to have Baby S in Dinosaurs Characters, etc. Although I still have questions about Faffner Hall. -- Danny Toughpigs 20:59, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
