My insight was with the character Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, the scientist. I'm watching the show, Bunsen shows up and WHAM! Like a flash of 38-years-of-the-obvious....
Bunsen Honeydew is so named because
HIS HEAD IS SHAPED LIKE (and the color of) A MELON!!
I felt like such an idiot for never making that connection before. (I mean, I'm not a rabid fan but Muppets have been in my life as long as ANYONE and ANYTHING!) You can imagine my relief when I pointed this out to Scott (embarrassed by my own lack of observation earlier) and he said, "Huh, I guess you're right. I never put that together either."
So... is it just the clueless Giesslers or did you never notice the Melon on Bunsen Honeydew either?
