Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Stalk Muppet

Geoffrey and I finally made it out to the Museum of the Moving Image today to see the amazing new Jim Henson exhibit, which was all kinds of crazy fun and well worth the haul out to Queens.

As soon as you enter the exhibit, just to the left there is a huge glass case full of assorted Muppets that aren’t necessarily the best known characters —  but whom you would know if you are a diehard fan and have seen all of the shows — and one of them is this little gal whose name is Pink Stalk. She is kind of hard see because there is purposely not much light on the display, and I didn’t want to get kicked out for using my flash. To me, Pink Stalk looks like a Shrimp, but that seems to not be the case. Pink Stalk is just a stalk.

Here is the back story on Pink Stalk from a Muppet Wiki I found on my vey first Google Search attempt!:

Aggression is the title of a sketch featured in The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence. The sketch begins with two Heaps, who are described in the script as follows:

“Two really gross clumps of crud – fabric – feathers and foam – maybe just mouths – realistic red interior and teeth. One has a club, which he smashes the others with from time to time. The other hits with his fist. They just make guttural sounds to each other – dialogue is to show inflection only and is completely unintelligible.”

After the Heaps beat each other up for a bit, two Stalks enter. The Pink Stalk prompts the Gold Stalk to get acquainted with the Heaps. However, when the Stalk pokes one of the Heaps to get their attention, they both attack him. The Pink Stalk tries to pacify her injured friend, who survived the blow with a twisted nose.The characters featured are listed in the script as Green Heap, Purple Heap, Pink Stalk, and Gold Stalk (although the stalks refer to each other in the script as George and Martha).

I love that story.

Muppet Google Doodle Honors the Birthday of Jim Henson

September 24th is the Birth date of the late Jim Henson, best known for creating and voicing many of the beloved Muppet characters. Today, Google remembers what would have been Jim’s 75th Birthday with a very cool (and interactive) Home Page Doodle, seen above (Hint: click on the colorful “hand” buttons, from left to right, under each Muppet icon for a fun surprise). The Google Blog also has a very endearing remembrance of Jim written by his son Brian, which you can read at This Link. Happy Birthday, Jim!
