Thanks to Brad for starting this list! Continuing the efforts of Cecil the List and Unnamed Characters, it seems worthwhile to examine the use of "The." The current list contains every example Brad and I could find, and now to hash out when it's appropriate or not. Here's a few cases where it makes sense to me:

Also, since "the" could be construed as part of an official name, in cases where we know the name is fan created, such as The Arab, in the future, it would probably be worth avoiding if at all possible. Thoughts? Andrew Leal (talk) 03:40, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

I agree 100% with what you said. I think some sorting of the list is in order to see where that gets us. -- Brad D. (talk) 03:58, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
I think that the Snerfs could at least be listed under "questionable". In episode 113 of The Muppet Show, Kermit introduces them as "The Snerfs", and then, as he questions the title, as "The Snerfs?" I think "The" could be considered official for The Snowths. Most albums that include the song "Mahna Mahna" identifies the singers as "Mahna Mahna and the two Snowths". And I think that the Cow Announcer was refferred to by that title when it appeared in episode 202 of Muppets Tonight. I also feel like there was either a Veterinarians Hospital or Pigs in Space sketch where somebody said "Cue The Announcer", which to me would make "the" official, but I can't remember which episode it was said in. --Minor muppetz 23:54, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
