This page needs sources. —Scott (contact) 04:09, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

How about if I start by breaking down those here which need sourcing, or which seem to? Trademark instruments, like Rowlf on piano, are self evident, but for example, we also have Bunsen down as playing the washboard on Muppets Tonight, so what we really need is a specific episode (and the same for all other caes where either a non-band member plays, a musician plays an additional instrument, or both musician and instrument appeared fairly rarely and it would vary, as with some of the jugband folks). For a few others, like Bobby Benson, the specifics are on their character page so I've just started copying them to the article. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 04:29, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

Seperate Lists

Wow, I never knew this list would be so big. Is it a good idea to make seperate entries for Sesame and Fraggle musicians, before we run out of space on this entry? -- Jog 22:57, 2 March 2006 (UTC) Jog

Heh, I kind of like the long list, but that's a point. We haven't even added Sesame characters who by definition are musicians, like Little Chrissy or Hoots the Owl yet. --Andrew, Aleal 22:59, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I figured once we really get started on Sesame characters, people are gonna pull out all the stops. That's gonna make the list twice as long! -- Jog 23:00, 2 March 2006 (UTC) Jog
Okay, already created Sesame Street Musicians. Not sure if we want to weed out Fraggle folks yet, there's just the Minstrels and Junior so far, but might be a good idea. --Andrew, Aleal 23:05, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
I'll start a Fraggle list, I came up with some more ideas! -- Jog 08:44, 3 March 2006 (UTC) Jog

Xylophone-like instrument

What's the instrument called that Janice is playing at their "gig" in The Muppets Take Manhattan? The kind of portable harp-like glockenspiel that's usually played in a marching band? Clifford played it too in The Muppets At Walt Disney World. -- Jog 08:44, 3 March 2006 (UTC) Jog

Nevermind, figured it out. It's a steel marimbaphone. -- Jog 14:59, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Characters Allowed

Are there rules as to what musicians belong on this list? Would characters from Solid Foam from the Jim Henson Hour count? Is there a page somewhere for musicians from Emmett Otter's Jugband Christmas, Muppet Musicians of Bremen, or other specials that do not have the main Muppet characters in them, or do those belong here? --Muppetfan 22:58, January 20, 2012 (UTC)
