Muppets with People Eyes
Big Bird is not a muppet.
Kermit seems to be rocking a good buzz, too.
I respectfully disagree.
Yeah he is.
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.
Muppet - A type of puppet popularised by Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, typically operated with one hand of the puppeteer inside the head and a rod to move one arm of the puppet
Big Bird is a full body suit, so according to this deffinition, BB is not muppet, but many of the other Sesame Street characters are.
Game, set and match good sir.
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.
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.
This is on track to rival the old "is nascar a sport" threads! :twitcy:
Let's compromise and say that Big Bird is part of the "Muppet Family" but not precisely a Muppet. He's like that distant cousin who you are technically related to you, but you don't send Christmas cards to.
Booyah, thread over.
What would we classify Snuffleupagus as?
