Chris,

I can't watch youtube here, but you should post that Muppet Show clip with the two old guys and that other old guy.  I bet folks here'd get a kick out of it.

Mark,

The two you are referring to would be Statler & Waldorf

Well, Cookie Monster overcame temptation and got the train through.  I really love the Muppets!

And if we're gonna talk about Henson and the muppets, someone has to mention "The Dark Chrystal"

I'm 40-something and never watched'em even way back in the 60's or that creepy Rogers character

The four cornerstones of my childhood:

Love the Statler and Waldorf stuff. I loved those guys as a kid. I also remember a show on PBS that had a lionel train in the closing credits. I don't remember much about it, but I've been looking for it for a while. All I remember is that it showed a night scene on a layout and had a train running by the camera. Any guesses?

I watched the Muppets when my kids were small - tackers we call 'em around these parts.

Anyway I must admit to enjoying the programmes as much as they did.  I think, therefore, the title of the thread should have been 30 - 90 somethings. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/laugh.gif

I remember the opening and closing credits of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood having a nicely detailed diorama of a
neighborhood and at times I believe that it had a train too? Could that be the show you remember?

Two wonderfully memorable Muppet characters from way back. I don't recall ever learning their names until now. Cool !

All the Warner Bros like Buggs Bunny and the Road Runner. Deputy Dog, Underdog, Pink Panther and Tom &Jerry were my favs. Heck I still get a kick out of the Muppets tho.

Waldorf's wife was Astoria.

Love the muppets!

Ok. Anybody remember a marionette animation with submarines? There was a war between the Terrans who lived on land and the Atlantans who lived in the sea. Whenever the Terran base was attacked, the sirens would sound and the building would sink into the ground... I think I was 7 last time I saw it, would have been '65.

I remember the Barron Barracuda biting Diver Dan's finger.

Diver Dan was a rarity on the Ray Rayner show but I can remember it like it was yesterday.
I also remember RR talking about how his initials were all over the country at all Railroad crossings./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/hehe.gif

There was also Fractured Fairy tales, Underdog, and yes always the Muppet show.

Hate to say it but it's many of the second wave Boomers or Yuppies AND their puppies that are in charge./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/wow.gif
