Not a muppet, but holy shiat was she spooky.

HotWingAgenda: Fano: ITGreen: Oh God, I hated the "yip yip martians." The rest of the list is a stretch though.

The list seems to be "the muppets we could think of that weren't Kermit."

"60 seconds to midnight, 60 seconds to EAT CEILING!"

That's not a muppet.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I can understand why some of those B-list muppets on the list were creepy. There's a reason why they weren't A-listers, after all. But I have the yip-yips as the ringtone on my cellular telephoooooooone and it's frickin' awesome.

Elmo should've been on the list, though. He creeps me the fark out, and he stole Grover's spotlight. And I used to be mildly disturbed by the muppets that danced around in music segments by taking their heads off and passing them around like basketballs.


I love this one. Great movie to boot.

100 Watt Walrus: I made myself an MP3 of that to use as my ring tone. People rarely recognize it, surprisingly, but when they do - let's just say I've been responsible for a few spit-takes.

saturn badger: I love this one. Great movie to boot.


For some reason, the Fireys (those original, more adult muppets) are the only versions that seem to exist in the historical record now. But a few years after Labyrinth, Henson made some more neon cute and furry versions specifically for musical interludes on Sesame Street. I know they were real, because 4 year-olds don't have LSD flashbacks.

Crazy Harry is most definitely a Muppet.

First time I ever did mushrooms we watched Dark Crystal with Mad Season's- Above CD playing. It doesn't sync up, and we weren't trying to see if it did, it's just a good CD. Anyway, that scene in the movie came on and it fit the song "All Alone" that was being played at the time. Blew my farking mind man!

Weak article is weak. I never got the slightest hint of Squeaky Fromme from Janice.
 
2013-01-23 08:30:42 AM  

Spatula Porn: So, it is confirmed that "Janice" is in fact a female muppet. I never quite understood what the hell that was supposed to be.


For some reason, as a kid, I always assumed she was male. Don't know why. It was only in re-watching the Muppet Movie as a teen that it hit me she was supposed to be female.

tailormadebassist: THIS freaked me out when I was a kid and still kinda does to this day (36 now). I love African rhythms and the music in general, but the masks always scared me.


"Turn the World Around?" yeah, that was a bit creepy. The Muppet Show got canceled when I was really young, but it went into syndication. It was on at 7:00AM on Saturdays, so I used to get up and watch it by myself (I was a huge Muppets fan). Some of those things really weirded me out because I watching them alone.

I love the Yip Yip martians. Terrifying? Right........
 
2013-01-23 09:21:08 AM  

HotWingAgenda: Fano: Crazy Harry wasn't a muppet? Or did my using a quote from the Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight confuse you?

My bad... there was a depressingly bad standup ventriloquist comedian a while back, that had a terrorist puppet.


A while back? His last Comedy Central stand-up was in Oct of last year. He is on tour right now.

Oh my... yes.  I remember getting chills as a kid hearing the trolly bell and then it would disappear into the wall to the other land.  Scared the hell out of me.  She was absolutely the creepiest.

My kids watched Dragon Tales and I got the same chills when Max and Emme would go to Dragon land.  Maybe there is a deeper issue here...
 
2013-01-23 09:51:19 AM  
I showed the Yip Yips to my kids when they were two. They thought they were great. That's right idiot blogger, you're easier to scare than a two year old.

What, no "muhnah muhnah" aliens? Oh, they're all cute and goofy while they're singing "do doo do doo do," but try a little bebop scat improv and they're all "stunned look of disapproval" and you lose your groove and well, you just gotta go with "muhnah muhnah" all over again. And then you try again, and it's the same damn look. You give and you give, but nothing is good enough for those pink felt demons. DAMMIT MOM! WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO MAKE YOU LOVE ME???

I think she was either an alcoholic or had rosacea.

I think that's the one someone must have been mentioning! They said they were terrified of something they cuold only call "Bizzare Snuffalupagus", but couldn't find any images.

WippitGuud: faerniir: Sweetums is my favorite muppet and has been for a long time. He's not scary, just misunderstood. Poor guy.


Aw hell no! When i was 4 i watched him and DogLion chase Cloris Leachman around an island trying to eat her. To this day that damn thing scares the bejesus out of me.

Shenanigans!: ninotchka: The Big Bad Wolf and the bear muppets used to terrify me as a kid

Ooh yes! The Big Bad Wolf! Now that was scary.

But Swedish Chef because of his human hands? Come on. Then you'd also have to count Ernie, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Big Bird, and all the other Muppets with people hands. I don't buy it.


The other Muppets hands are inside gloves/mitts. That makes all the difference.
 
2013-01-23 03:02:26 PM  
If you watch the Swedish Chef for five minutes and are not laughing your ass off, then you have no soul.

SHAME!!!!!

No fraggle rock?

These guys always freaked me out abit -- they were always tormenting fraggles...

And as kind and sweet and kind as this muppet was -- she was a talking trash heap. Freaky much? The only muppet to really bother me as a child.

\Garthim have nothing on the trash heap from fraggle rock.

Pretty sure none of the ones on that list cast a whole world into darkness and committed genocide, but not regular kill them all slaughter; more drain their life to extend their own vitality.

Yip yip martians were scary? They are HILARIOUS.
