Different magic words in "Surprise" trick

I've got a video clip of the "Surprise" trick on my PC: in that clip, Mumford uses "Peanut butter" alone (not "A la peanut butter sandwiches") as his magic words. Should that be noted in the article and/or the sketch synopsis? -- Ingeborg 17:22, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

By the way, I ran across that same video clip on the Net tonight (YouTube). It definitely sounds like a different man behind the puppet; this is probably Mumford's debut sketch, between the voice and the different magic words. -- Ingeborg 00:56, 22 October 2007 (UTC)
It's not a different puppeteer (just Jerry Nelson using a Fred Allen voice, rather than the W. C. Fields inflection). Feel free to add the different word to the synopsis, but anything about first appearance is just speculation (however well founded) without sources for debut episode and dates. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 04:07, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Amazing Ralph

In the program summary for Episode 0305 that's in the CTW archives, the description of the Mumford/Grover sketch calls him "the Amazing Ralph". Does Grover actually call him by name in the disappearing pineapples sketch? If not, then is it possible that the character was originally known as "the Amazing Ralph", and then his name was changed to Mumford? -- Danny (talk) 23:49, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Grover never refers to him as such. -- MuppetDude 22:23, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

John Kennedy

Does anyone know what John Kennedy's one line was? --Pantalones 19:23, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Should this article be longer?

Hi, I was thinking that this article seemed, well, a little to short. Does anyone have any ideas to expand this article. I'm sure their is a bit more history to this character. Thanks:)TheAmazingScooter (talk) 09:02, September 23, 2012 (UTC)TheAmazingScooter

I don't see how we should expand anything. He's a got a rather big trivia section, a sketch table, filmography and book appearances. What more is there? Shoe size? - Oscarfan (talk) 16:57, September 23, 2012 (UTC)
