What is the name of those yip guys on Sesame Street? And don't just say "the yip guys" unless that's the answer!

Do you mean the ones who would go "yep yep yep yep, uh huh,uh huh". ?
I think they were the "men from mars". They were hillarious!:p

My copy of Sesame Street: Unpaved lists them as "the Martians". To quote the book, they were "'yip-yipped' by Jim Henson, Jerry Nelson, and Martin Robinson."

I thought I saw a reference to them as "bucket-mouths", but maybe it was a description of my own making. I also thought they were pretty cool.

And the way they could hide behind their lower jaw when scared...priceless.
