I read somewhere that the famous "Ma-nah-ma-nah" Muppets song was actually lifted from a Swedish porn movie from the 60s. I think Henson productions may be some kind of front. In any case, Henson was always very subversive in his approach to children's entertainment -- this can't be just a ill-advised toy concept; my gut says it was developed with a specific end in mind.

Hey now. Do you suppose people would think it was odd if I got one of these for my kids (ages 15, 11 and 8?)

The house could fall down around me and I'd just say "Honey, can you take care of that? I'm sitting on Elmo's face right now."

Shake, giggle. Happy Mom.

Henson might have been subversive, but Disney, who now own the Muppets is not, at least not in that sense.

It could be a false memory, but I think I heard the manamana song pre-Muppets, and it wasn't on Swedish porn. I think it might have been Ernie Kovacs.

dCup - you should go for it. I love the thought of The Honey being jealous of Elmo.

Now, Katie, while I appreciate the use you allude to, plenty of kids, including myself, were fans of Magic Fingers when staying at motels in the 50s and 60s.

Put in a quarter, turn out the light
Magic fingers makes you feel alright

Ya gotta admit Katie, the nylon shag that is Elmo's pelt would be a real bitch to get body fluid stains out of.

I never thought of Elmo quite like that, but hot damn I am gonna get one of those, now if only it came with mountable attachments, I would be in heaven.....

Kinda like when mechanical horses in front of grocery stores became a different kind of fun....
