As if I don't learn enough great new stuff on this site, now I know Mr. Snuffleupagus's first name. Thanks, petruchio.

Are Statler and Waldorf the two crusty old guys in the balcony?

Update: Visible? Did you say Mr. Snuffleupagus is visible now? Did everyone on Sesame Street apologize to poor Big Bird for all of the therapy that they probably caused him to undergo?

    Yeah, I think they made him "real" for the sake of being P.C. Something perhaps about not wanting children to think that adults won't believe them when they're telling the truth, or some such nonsense.

    I tried to find a page that explained the "why", but no luck. Just a bunch of noisy Elmo flash stuff LOL
