    Re: Kind of disturbing

    What decides a muppet and what doesn't? Big Bird was in The Muppet movie, but was not part of the actual group, so I agree, he isn't a muppet. He is a Jim Henson family member, but shouldn't be a muppet.

    Still a bit creepy though.

    Re: Kind of disturbing

    Wikipedia says he's a muppet, so that's pretty much that.

    Muppet was what they called a puppet. Big Bird is not a puppet nor is he a muppet.

    Re: Kind of disturbing

    Muppets, specifically those from the Muppet Show, kick ***. Big Bird does not, so I don't want him to be given the muppet tag. I guess it is just a personal vendetta.

    Explain. It was a combination of Marionette and Puppet. Big Bird is a muppet in terms of branding and tradmark, but he does not fit in with all the others.

    Bart: Dad, what's a muppet?

    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.
