    Did anyone watch the parade??? There was a couple who dressed as Sesame Street characters (from the 70's). They were AWESOME, but I don't remember the characters names (I'm trying to find pictures).

    The characters were the 2 aliens (blue and pink) who stood by the telephone and they'd go "Meep, meep, TELEPHONE!"

    Anyone know these characters??

    Beeker was the one who would go Meep Meep all the time...

    No, they were triangular in shape and very simple (design-wise).

    I forget exactly what they said (maybe it wasn't "Meep") - But they often repeated words : "Nope! Nope! - Brrrrrrring!!!! Telephone! Yup, yup yup!" etc.

    Oh.. OK [​IMG] How about the Yip Yip Martians:

    I think they are in an episode where they discover a telephone. It does originate back in the early 70s and this is Sesame Street.. The colors don't match your description though.

    There's a yahoo group on these characters FYI:

    I have found something interesting too, I found something that specically mentions the Brrrrr..brrrring telephone thing on Kazaa. But I'm not a Kazaa member so I can't search, but I was told to do a search for Yip Yip there and there exists an MP3 of it.

    Yes! Those are the ones! Thanks. The Yahoo group has the blue one and the pink-ish one.

    Yeah, those "Yip Yip" things are on my daughter's Sesame Street DVD (oh GOD, how many times can a kid watch the same...oops, never mention her dad and JAWS in the future!).
