Boppity

I know its common for monsters and other characters to have multiple performers, but how common is it to have the same character performed by different performers within the same production (both with dialogue)?? At the Dance, Bop is Jim - during the prisoner skit, its Frank. Instances of this (a character performed by noticably different performers within the same production) would make a great list unless this is the only time its known to have happened.. --Cantus Rock 19:58, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

It happened with Piggy a bunch in the first season, when Frank and Richard traded her off. -- Peter (talk) 15:36, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I thought that Boppity was performed by Dave Goelz in At the Dance. Anyway, another example of a character being performed and voiced by two different people in the same episode is Episode 103: Joel Grey, where Gloat is performed by Jim Henson in At the Dance but performed by Frank Oz in "Caberet". And although Frank Oz performed Mildred Huxtetter in all first season At the Dance segments, in all other appearances she was performed by others, so in Episode 109: Charles Aznavour she is also performed by Richard Hunt, and in Episode 115: Candice Bergen she is also performed by Dave Goelz. --Minor muppetz 15:41, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
It could've been Goelz...the voice sounded a lot like Waldorf (but of course now that Dave does him it likely was him)...I just knew it was not Frank. Mildred would work too I'd say, as long as all her other performers are accounted for. I think this would make a worthy addition to the wiki. Any ideas on the article title? --Cantus Rock 00:01, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Piggy's first chop

So, this is apparantley the first episode where Piggy's karate occurs. I was going to ad the old story Frank tells in interviews about how it was originally supposed to me a slap, but I've heard that's an urban legend/mistake. Anyone have any info that would clarify if it's true? Also, this show's taping landed on Frank's birthday (May 25th) which may be worth adding. Scooter 01:06, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

According to the Muppet Morsels on the first season DVD set, it's no urban legend. It was originally supposed to be a slap, but during rehearsal Frank decided that a karate chop would be funnier, and that made it into taping. Chunk 15:32, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Basketball

In the ending scene, when Ruth is standing with the Muppets in front of the red curtain, I spotted what appears to be a Muppet basketball bouncing around with the other characters. Was this puppet in any of the episode's sketches? Is there any information about it being in other productions at all? Chunk 02:10, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
