Such a good read.


– Oscar (the best of all muppets) is called Akhtar in Pakistan and lives in an oil barrel.

– The Swedish Chef is maybe based on a real person named Lars “Kuprik” Bäckman.

– Miss Piggy is from Iowa and had to make money in beauty pageants because her father died young and her mother was mean.

– Bert and Ernie are straight and alive.

– Grover is called Archibaldo in several Latin American countries. In Norway he is Gunnar.

– Elmo humbly started out as some extra red puppet laying around the studio. (I hate Elmo).

– Who’s ever heard of Pepe the King Prawn?

– Beaker can beatbox.
