Which Muppets Are Members Of The Illuminati?


Recommended Posts

Fraggle Rock is pure propaganda for neo-capitalism. The proletariat (the blue-collar 'doozers') work tirelessly on productive labours. The lazy, good for nothing Fraggles however are feckless to the Nth degree. Rarely, if ever, are they seen to carry out any work at all yet we are supposed to identify with them ("false class consciousness"). Clearly however it is the fraggles that own the cavern and are literally bigger, and thus more important, than the oppressed workers who serve them. The Fraggles themselves literally eat the work of the doozers, the symbolic implications of this hardly need to be spelt out. Sickeningly, in one episode of Fraggle Rock one of the fraggles questioned whether they should be consuming the productivity of the doozers only to be told that the doozers require the fraggles to eat their structures or else they would quickly run out of space to build in. The doozers in fact look to leave fraggle rock in order to find such a space. The unmitigated gall of it; workers slave away because they like it and if the rich didn't steal their productivity they'd have nothing to live for! Disgusting and vile.

The Muppet Show is even worse and don't get me started on Sesame Street and "The Count" (a central banker if ever I saw one who believes uncritically in constant growth) and the bumbling domestic adventures of "Bert and Ernie" (...they should just call them Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae and be honest about it).

Actually this sounds like the work of Marxist subversives eating into the tender minds of our kids with a dialectical exposition of The System.

Just like they did with Chorlton and The Wheelies.

I believe Bagpuss offers of the more muscular analysis. Professor Yaffle was based on Bertrand Russell you know. Chorlton is somewhat compromised by its obsession with Thatcherism specifically.

I'm not sure how widely it will be known to non Mancs, but Chorlton was named after the name of the area of Manchester where it's created, Chorlton-cum-hardy.

How many of us took a school trip to Cosgrove Hall to see how they made it, plus Dangermouse? I did.

How odd, I was just the right age to watch that sort of thing when it came out, but I don't remember it at all.

It was good, but clearly made by a bunch of tripping students.

No, no, no. As in the program '24' the guy you think is pulling the strings is just a medium ranking henchman. Big Bird is the guy really pulling the strings. The clue is in the name.

I heard that Mr. Snufalupagus and Big Bird made a secret deal in the sesame street canteen about the succession - and big bird has hung around to long.

His days are numbered (12) and lettered (A)
