Pre-79 things rarely seen in post 75s
« on: June 01, 2012, 05:32:24 PM »
I was thinking what were some things or charachters seen in more often pre-79s that weren't seen much in the modern era a few were:
Donkey Hodie only four I believe
Betty Aberlin in the real neighborhood, only 6 I believe
Grandpere and the Eifel Tower

Also, the Brown's Marionette Theater and Francois Clemmons's studio were seen only in the pre-79s.

Betty's Little Theater was rare in modern episodes too.

Bob Trow's workshop was only visited 4 times in the modern era and very early in the series (in 1980, 1982 and 1984). Funny enough, most of the visits to the workshop that took place in the modern era had Rogers wear his gray sweater. The first three times he went there it was gray. Only now that he visits for the last time does he wear a different one (the brown one).

Also, Susan Linn, Audrey Duck and Catalion appeared mostly in the pre-79 era. The only time they appeared in the post-75 era was in the Making Mistakes week. Apparently, she had another puppet, Rabbitha, who only appeared in the pre-79 era (she appears in 1435 from 1975; it's unknown if she appears in any other episodes or not).
