Did you know there is a Muppet Wiki??? Whoa Nelly! Yessiree there is indeed! That's where I found out that the character Gordon http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Gordon, played by actor-activist Roscoe Orman, was conceptualized as a "strong paternal character" who was originally intended to provide a "role model for African American children who lacked a positive father figure. But like many of the Sesame Street adults, Gordon has transcended across the board to appeal to children of all races...." and apparently is the "most likely" Sesame Street adults to "offer admonishment" - i.e. be straight...

Hummm. Fair 'nuf... Gordon is a go, and Fulani is some flair...
