Benevolent Misanthrope: Gawd Almighty, I found them extremely annoying even when I was a child. Even worse than normal mimes. I can't imagine actually paying to sit through a performance now.
The English Major: When I hear "Mummenschanz," I think of Newsradio.
theorellior: I thought the giant slinky act was amusingly surreal when I was a kid. I think they guest-starred on Sesame Street a few times and I though it was pretty cool, probably because it reminded me of the original Mahnah-Mahnah short with the slinky caterpillar. I also remember the Notepad People act and thought that was awesome.I was a weird kid.
SomethingToDo: Came for the Patrician, an angry lunchmob is good enough, I guess.
Benevolent Misanthrope: Gawd Almighty, I found them extremely annoying even when I was a child.
dennysgod: The clay faced skit they did on the Muppet Show still haunts me to this day.
llevrok: I had a Mummenschanz removed from my ankle once. Very painful
Gratch: I was alternately fascinated and terrified by Mummenschanz as a kid. Would love to take my daughter to see them...too bad they're not playing anywhere near here.
