Don Music

Two lines, two lines. There are a hundred lines in this new song and ninety eight of them are fine, but the last two, the last two...

Remember Don Music slamming his muppet head on his piano? "Zippety Doo Dah, Zippety...Zippity...hmmm, Zippety..." SMASHES HEAD ON KEYBOARD "Oh I'll NEVER get this, I'll NEVER get this!"

Don Music was Plottie's all time favorite Muppet, along with The Count. "One lovely shrunken head, two lovely shrunken heads, three lovely shrunken heads..."

And Grover. Of course Grover has been replaced by Insipid Elmo now but we O.G's still love Grover.

Not to short change Oscar the Grouch or Ernie or Piggie. But Don Music was Plotnik's main man, even though he almost never made it onto the show.

Lat night Plotnik went to sleep working on his new song, so it twirled through his brain all night long and when he woke up this morning he had one of the lines. ONE! WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER?


"Oh I'll NEVER get it, I'll NEVER get it!"

BULLETIN: HE GOT IT! All he had to do was rhyme 'choir' with 'Jambalaya.'

Man, there's a LOT of trivia about Muppet characters on the web. I love that they stopped showing Don Music because people were complaining that their kids were mimicking his head-banging routine. Maybe that's why we don't see Road Runner any more either.
