The robot-superhero looking character was performed by Paul Rugg in the TBS special. The one with dreadlocks was shown in a bumper for that special, but it looks like Bill Barretta performing from another performance. If anyone knows names for them -- they're both interesting-looking puppets -- it would be great to have pages for them. — Scott (talk) 05:10, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

They're both from the CityKids series from the ealy 90's. Hope that helps. -- 68.163.36.39 08:21, February 8, 2007
Interesting. Too bad those shows are so inaccessible now. — Scott (talk) 15:17, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
I have some of the episodes, but unfortunately I can't upload them. -- 68.163.36.39 2:18, February 8, 2007
Can you be more specific... perhaps these characters had names? — Scott (talk) 18:41, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
The guy in Pink is one of a set...He's "Super-Ego", with his pals "Ego" and "Id"...doing more research to find the show/other characters (all 3 will go to Australia).Wagglethis 00:49, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Puppet Up! Characters

These puppets were used in Puppet Up! - Uncensored. Are any of them pre-exisiting puppets that were recycled from past productions? If so what are they from and do they (or could they) have a page on the wiki? -- Brad D. (talk) 00:09, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

I don't know actually but as for The Ferret, (The picture on the right) I have seen it on Muppet Treasure Island in the Opening Credit song Shiver My Timbers along with Sal. that's all the information I can give at this point. --Kermit45 1:06pm, 12 January 2006
Me neither but as for the ferret (pictured on the right) I've seen it in Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas and The Muppet Show as a background character. --Skater 1:06pm, 14 January 2006
The ferret is actually a weasel, and the weasel we're calling a ferret. The weasels official name (written inside on the tag) is Wally. Also referred to in Puppet Up as the "Translation Weasel". I'm not sure where the ferret came from, but I'm going to head over to the shop and get the backgrounds of all these orphans.Wagglethis 00:23, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Whatnots from What?

Both of these Whatnots are currently featured in Puppet Up!, but does anyone know their origins and where/if they've been seen prior? (Muppets Tonight, Muppet Meeting Films, "Very Merry Muppet Christmas", From the Balcony...) -- Brad D. (talk) 07:30, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

The yellowish one was originally a faceless Whatnot from The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss, with his current design made to look more "Muppety". As for the other one, I don't know. He may have been built for the show. -- MuppetDude 15:48, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
I got it! The first one is named Harvey. -- Skater 15:48, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
The Second one Kinda Resembles Ray Romano a little bit. -- Kermit45 1:10, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
The Buggeyed old man was designed for Puppet Up by Drew Massey. I'll find out who built him. He's brand-spankin new. The yellow one was a blank head dressed and wigged by Jane Gootnik for Puppet Up. I use him mostly as a put-upon deadpan lesbian named Nancy in the Puppet Up shows. Wagglethis 00:27, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Are they Muppets?

Dean put the Horny Aliens, Herman Monster, Al the Alien and Sexy Blond in the Muppet Characters category. I know that we've talked somewhere about whether the Puppet Up characters count as Muppets or not, but I can't remember where, or what we decided... -- Danny (talk) 21:24, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Nothing was decided, really, the discussion just halted, like so many do. You and I seemed to feel this was similar to Muppets vs. Creatures, and as long as they came from the Jim Henson Company, aesthetics should be the main rule used to decide whether a new character is a Muppet or not (though I noticed in a recent talk page you seemed to question whether that should be the case with Dog (dinosaur), so I don't know whethere you're ready to reconsider that policy). Peter and Scott seemed to feel that since the company no longer legally owns the "Muppet" phrase, no new characters can *ever* be Muppets. For now, since they have their own category, it strikes me as easier to just remove the Muppet tag. Andrew Leal (talk) 23:21, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
Well, let's leave this discussion open for a little while and see if we can get any more input that might lead to a decision. -- Danny (talk) 13:21, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
We talked about the subject at the Current Events section. It's probably in an archive now. --Minor muppetz 15:38, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
Right, but Danny asked if anything had been decided from it. Nothing has, as of now. Andrew Leal (talk) 15:56, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
I continue to stand behind my former position. I believe that it serves as an effective barrier between me and the IRS. -- Peter (talk) 21:13, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
Puppet Up characters are not Muppet characters. Disney owns the Muppets. Henson owns Puppet Up. It's that simple. An article for a Puppet Up character may also be categorized in Muppet Characters if that puppet was also used in a production by Henson before the sale, or on loan to Disney for a Muppet production. — Scott (talk) 00:20, 15 August 2006 (UTC)
I was at a performance at the Edinburgh Fringe, and they *specifically* said on-stage that they were not Muppets. So that clears that one up. 82.32.184.53 23:19, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
It's true...we're not even allowed to say the "M" word. So many new characters were built for Puppet Up because after our first few performances, Disney had all "Muppet" puppets shipped to their offices. Not much left to play with. So it is safe to say that any puppet that was a Muppet will always be so, and anything Henson (non Muppet) like Fraggle Rock, Labyrinth, Emmet Otter, and Puppet Up never actually were and won't ever be Muppets. It's messy...hope this helps...Wagglethis 00:36, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
I don't care what anyone says, They will always be Muppets in my book no matter what, But I do believe that this is in justice.--Kermit45 1:15, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
