A Bit Of Silly: Sesame Street’s Yipping Martians in a Recording Studio

And Now For Something Completely Different

There have been fully ten different performers to operated and voiced at least one Sesame Street’s word-sounding-out Martians, the Yip Yips, which might be a record for any Muppet characters on the show (including the similarly used Two-Headed Monster). But as we all know, it’s not actually the performer, it’s the Muppet themself, and so obviously the Martians had to be present when Marty Robinson and Matt Vogel recorded their voices for their new iPhone app. Yep. Uh HUH.
