Smiling

This article states that the animated version of Beaker could smile and do other things with his mouth that the puppet couldn't do. Now, for the most part, most fans who have episodes only have one episode, which has been uploaded on youtube. That first episode didn't have any Beaker cartoons, so how is this known? Are there any fans with commercials featuring the animated Beaker or something? Now, there is one fan who mentioned having all three broadcast episodes at Talk: Little Muppet Monsters, so maybe that user could inform us (I don't know if that user has traded copies with anyone here or if those have been uploaded online, and I think this info was posted long before that user mentioned having the other episodes). I know that Baby Beaker sometimes smiled, but I think we need a source or video footage before saying that Beaker smiled on this show. --Minor muppetz 21:59, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

The statement was added by User:Smig, who may have other episodes; he'd be the person to ask about that. More relevantly, though, it's kind of a given in this instance, as with Baby Beaker, because of the nature of animation. As such, however, I'm not sure it's really worth remarking on (since all of the animated incarnations of any given Muppet have different freedoms and limitations in contrast to the physical puppet as far as facial expressions, movement, and so on). Actually, this is kind of a bland page anyway, since nothing's surfaced, with one dubious note, a performer credit, and the same cast model sheet line-up on other pages. I like being able to track the incarnations of Muppets to animation individually, and keeping them distinct, but in this case, I feel like it might be worth just redirecting to Little Muppet Monsters for now. On the other hand, it makes it easy to see which characters are known to have been used in the series, so I dunno. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 22:25, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm watching Episode Two right now and he does in fact smile during the segment. DX927 22:36, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

I based my observations on having actually watched an episode of LMM . The Invention was some sort of anti-gravity machine which enabled Beaker to lift a piano- which as expectedly, fell on him when something went wrong. Having no VCR at the time, I have no actual recording of the show, but I DO remember being horrified at the quality of the animation. It didn't suit the character at all. User:Smig 27 January 2009
