"I'll tell you what was missing from that list."

"What?"

"A reason why I should care what someone who blogs for Topless Robot thinks."

Okay, Uncle Deadly actually qualifies. The rest, though? Man up, small children of the seventies.

Half the muppet aliens from Farscape. Some of those got downright creepy.

I love the Yip-Yips! I thought they were funny when I was a kid. And I'll allow Swedish Chef, only because I find his human hands somewhat troubling. I understand the necessity of it, it's just still... troubling.

Uncle Deadly scared the hell out of me when I was a little kid. The deep-sunk eyes and his creepy hand motions freaked me out.

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.

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...

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."

[content6.flixster.com image 246x270]

"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.


Crazy Harry is most definitely a Muppet.

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.

Wiki: "Creator Joss Whedon is the son of former Muppet writer Tom Whedon; several puppeteers from The Jim Henson Company were involved in the episode, including Alice Dinnean-Vernon, Leslie Carrara, Victor Yerrid, Julianne Buescher, Tim Blaney, and Drew Massey."

I love the yip-yips, they're funny...

As for the rest of the list, it pretty much sucks. Gonzo, Sweetums, Swedish Chef, they aren't "terrifying". Hell, Sweetums is one of my faves. When he showed up on The Muppets, I knew the movie was going to turn out OK... He and Beaker are two sides of the same coin. He's big and a little timid. Beaker is small and quite brave.
