As said by Homer: "Well, it's not quite a mop and it's not quite a puppet... but man (laughs). So to answer your question, I don't know." I don't know either, but I know the muppets are damn funny. In '96, Muppets Tonight went on air with a lot of new characters. In one show, starring Sandra Bullock, the studio was boobytrapped with a bomb and if the ratings would go below 50, the studio would explode - Speed with puppets. I remember one sketch I didn't understand completely untill I woke up at night around 3 and started laughing almost hysterically. Just watch this clip and wait for Seymour the Elephant and Pepe the Prawn - make sure you watch it completely, the re-appear a few times. If you don't get it too, let me know. And anyone buying the 2 seasons of Muppets tonight (hint, birthday next month coming up heh) will be my new hero!
