So is his spoof Muppet, Frankie Yakovic, a Yak or a Wildebeast? I had copied the text from the original page, which said Wildebeast, but someone changed it to Yak. I've not seen the episode, so I don't know. --Radionate 04:58, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

The name would indicate that he's meant to be a yak, but now that I think about it he really looks much more like a wildebeest. "A complicated issue." GrantHarding 07:00, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
I think he's a yak...
Yakovic
He's too fat and furry to be a wildbeest and his head is very yak-like plus the yak-ish beard thing). To compair:Real Yak and Real Wildebeest they are similar, but Frankie looks like a yak (to me at least). -- BradFraggle 20:56, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
I say go with the yak. Even apart from photo comparisons, it seems pretty clear he was meant to be a yak, even if he had wildebeest similarities. As has been discussed before, Muppet character don't always accurately recreate the physiology of the animal they're supposed to represent. I'm sure one of these days they'll probably create "Oscar Wildebeest," who looks more like a buffalo suffering from anemia. --Andrew, Aleal 21:01, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
