Mr. Cooper in Powerpuff Movie?
I admit, I haven't seen the movie. So I'm asking if someone can verify/deny that the "Mr. Cooper" gag from "The Rowdyruff Boys" was indeed redone for the Powerpuff movie. --Dave Splurge 01:59, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
- I'm not convinced they are except in the most generic sense. They're a pair of puppets who beat each other with foam clubs. One has a tall head, one has a round head. That's it; nothing in their voices, personality, behavior, or the premise of their bits is at all Ernie and Bert-like. So there may have been some visual influence, but I think it's stretching it to say they're "based on" the pair, except in the sense that so many fictional puppets used in cartoon series may have superficial resemblances to the Muppets, which may or may not be intentional. For myself, I'd be inclined to scrap it, or otherwise qualify it in the extreme. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 20:09, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Is there a source for the following statement? -- The character "Fuzzy Lumpkins" has been said to be based on Sweetums.
Is it fan speculation or has it been mentioned by one of the creators? -- Scott, Scarecroe 18:25, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
- It comes from this interview. The relavant quote from Craig McCracken: "Fuzzy Lumpkins was inspired by Lurky from Rainbow Bright and Precious from the Muppets." It's been assumed but not proven that by "Precious," McCracken was thinking of Sweetums. Even then, there's a difference, to my mind, between "inspired by", particularly when elements of another character are used jointly, as well as new characteristics, and "based on." Personally, I'd just include the quote, thus readers can draw their own conclusions as to which elements they'd like to think came from Sweetums or so on. -- Andrew, Aleal 18:29, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
