Kid's Puppet Fun Time, Alright!

We were poor growing up and never got Sesame Street. We would only get this rip-off version that, frankly, left us wanting... and very frightened.

You were on the wrong channel. Sesame Street was on PBS. Now that we're older, though, we'd probably prefer this version. You've done something very new and appealing in a sickening sort of way, good job, Joe!

This is hilarious, Joe. I've been giggling for a few minutes, and now I don't remember what I was going to say. One thing is certain... I love what you've done. Your freak-Muppets are classic! Nice work, man.

The only thing left wanting here is more characters. Each week I like you more Joe...in a very "Kert the Hetero" sort of way.

I was just laughing at this again. I think it's my favorite thing you've ever done, concept-wise. Glorious!

Also... Lindsay's comment made me laugh. Man, I love Toon Club.

I've been trying to learn Illustrator and working on my overall drawing technique, so my last few entries have been very heavily borrowed designs and styles... but this is one where (influenced by other things they may be) it was my crazy ideas and the Illustrator techniques together.

This is my favorite too.

I can't stop laughing at these. They're hilarious. I'm telling you, though.. That is not a tongue in Cleveland's mouth... It's a femur bone. Admit it!

Kert is gonna pound someone. Why is he so angry?

Really awesome job Joe! You know how I feel, this is great! Great idea, originally Joe style, Nice drawing and execution. One of your best! The Duke is creeping me out.....

Hysterical again, Joe! Was this the HBO version of the show; the 'not intended for children' version?

I nearly cried the day I discovered that they were changing Ernie and Bert's relationship from roommates to Bert being Ernie's gaurdian. I love Kert's 5 o'clock shadow. He looks like one of the 'boys' that took out Mr. Hooper in Bryan's sketch. Confection Creature has to be my favorite. That neck bone sticking out of Cleveland's throat is making me gag. Too funny!
