Binder clip

Yip Yip Clip

“Binder clip.”

Yip Yip Clip

“Binder clip. Yip. Binder clip. Yip yip yip yip.”


Oh Sesame Street, where would society be without you?

I don’t even know what to say.

Aaaah!! Those are the muppets that traumatized my childhood! They haunt my dreams! That… that… yipping sound… *shudders*

Thanks a lot. :D

I always wanted the yip yip as my cell phone ringer. Yip, yip, yip, yip bering!!!!

How cool would that be.

Brilliant. You have a great eye! And now binder clips will make me forever happy. Quick side note, I actually visited the Jim Henson studios when I was in college and we were told that the Yip Yip aliens were made from hats Jim found in the Village. The mouths are the openings for your head.

Ma Na Ma Na.

any time i see the yip yip muppets i have to smile


Doo doo de doo-doo.

PS: This blog is now a permanant fixture of my daily Internetings as of right now. If you post about the Yip aliens, you automatically win the ‘Should I Read THIS Blog, Too?’ test.

The youtube link seems to have been deleted by Viacom… can you reupload it somewhere else? I’d like to see this.

God! I was explaining my colleges that this kind of clips reminded me of Sesame Street Yip-Yip. And when we googeled “yip-yip” I found you had done the same comparison!! Incredible…

I love these muppets. I don’t know why but they popped up in my head today after not seeing this video in over 20 years. But for those of you who are interested in the ring tone, all you have to do is sample the audio into a ringtone maker and upload to your phone. Pretty simple.

Heh, I’ve long called them yip yip clips because of the resemblance.

Drat!! I just had the same realization as you did sitting in a boring meeting and playing with a binder clip. I even took a picture of a binder clip and while searching for a yip yip alien, i come across your photo! Well played sir … well played.
