I just separated the Dog City Characters Category into separate Special and Series categories, but it just struck me that, since there are so few of them, maybe the Dog City Special characters belong in Jim Henson Hour Characters category. Thoughts?

Also, can anyone say if Pomeroy and Tramp are the same characters when they appear in the series? Or are they the same puppets but different characters? -- Peter (talk) 00:20, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Same puppet, different characters in the series. Pomeroy was the identity used by the policeman puppet on the series, Tramp was a gray dog in the special and reused as a background/utility figure in the series. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 00:29, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
Are the special and the series two different universes? β€” Scott (talk) 01:05, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
The special, which is set in a film noir-style 40s, inspired the *animated* portions of the series, with Ace Yu and Bugsy Them as clear inspirations for Ace Hart and Bugsy Vile. The Muppet portions of the series weren't at all the same, set in a vaguely modern time with the "behind the scenes" aspect. Confusingly though, Colleen Barker was the girlfriend in the special and same name, puppet, and performer were used as Eliot's working-girl neighbor in the first season. Originally, Brad just stuck them all in one category, which frankly made sense to me, but I can also see wanting to weed out the special folks, especially since as of now, we just have stubs for a handful of them. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 01:13, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
