Anyone know what happened to that Muppet Go Round prototype for the 5200 that was sold a few years back?  I'd really like to get some better pictures of it for my page:

I guess you guys made up. (seeing as some editing obviously occurred in this thread)

Just curious, have any other 5200 Protos surfaced over the years that also "disappeared" again like this one did?

I was just joking with Matt.  I can't think of another one, but I know of several ones for the 2600.

I always thought the Sesame Street characters were Muppets...

They all were.   Kermit started on Seseme Street and when the Muppet Show was created was brought over there.

What's the difference between a muppet and a puppet?

I think muppet means Marionette/Puppet. Kermit is more than just a hand puppet. He also has a stick on his hand for additional movement. Some of the muppets (like Ernie and Cookie Monster) were operated by two people at once.

 

Kermit pre-dates Sesame Street. He was made from an old coat that belonged to jim Henson's mother. He made appearances on Ed Sullivan a few times.

Check these out...

Even before that, Kermit appeared on the show Sam and Friends.
