Morsels

What's the on-screen context that justifies the trivia mention in the Muppet Morsels? The article says he appeared in Season 5, so it's a little confusing. -- Scott (talk) 23:33, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Or, if someone can tell me what episode it was in, I'll go look. -- Scott (talk) 01:50, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
Actually there isn't much context (I just watched it less than 30minutes ago and I can't remember any at least). It's in the middle of the Twiggy episode, which has all sorts of random notes. But it's definitely there. Only the morsels spell it "Senor Baffi" instead of Signor... -- Wendy (talk) 01:17, 27 June 2006 (UTC)
The Morsels must have misspelled it then. Baffi is Italian, so it's Signor. I believe Señor would be Spanish. -- Scott (talk) 01:23, 27 June 2006 (UTC)
yup. Señor is definitely spanish, and the restaurant was italian. I was just noting it down for the record. -- Wendy (talk) 01:33, 27 June 2006 (UTC)
The character speaks in an Italian accent, too (see/hear below). So that shouldn't leave any doubt. -- Scott (talk) 01:39, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Performer

I changed the performer to Dave Goelz per Media:Baffi.ogg -- Scott (talk) 20:47, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Italian Restaurant

Is there a source on the Italian restaurant info? Do we know the name of the restaurant? -- Toughpigs 15:46, 2 Jan 2006 (UTC)

He doesn't refer to it by name, but this is what Jerry Juhl has to say in the Henson's Place documentary: "There was a weekly ritual meeting at an italian restaurant across the street from the studio where we worked, where Jim Henson and Frank Oz and the writing staff would sit and talk about the next show to be written, and the guest star and what would be good ideas... we would evolve an idea from there." -- Scarecroe 01:43, 3 Jan 2006 (UTC)
I believe the actual name of the restaurant is not "Señor Boffy's", but "Señor Baffy's". It was mentioned on one of the Muppet Morsels on the Muppet Show Season 1 DVD, but I can't remember which episode... --Jog 12:17, 3 Jan 2006 (UTC)Jog
Solved it! -- Jog 12:40, 3 Jan 2006 (UTC) Jog
Excellent! That rocks. -- Toughpigs 12:48, 3 Jan 2006 (UTC)
