German is not sexy. Unless you find retching a turn-on.

I'm rusty but here is the translation... feel free to correct!

There shines the sun with rays of gold
A cat and dog are playing together
And you don't have money for milk
That's how it is

He works a lot and earns a little
The time drags and drags slowly
At the end of the day (?)I and you too
We return to Avenue Q
We live on Avenue Q
It's not impressive
????
To live on Avenue Q
To live on Avenue Q
To live on Avenue Q
To live on Avenue Q

Shira, I'm laughing right along. SO AWESOME! lol

Is it just me, or do the puppets look a little "off" - like they are bootleg imitations of the Broadway puppets?

well, they are imitations why would it just be you?

it's pretty funny though. those puppets are a bit naughtier then their US counterparts. Lucy is hooking up with real guys, not just puppets, in public restrooms and Nicky is snorting something... I can't quite tell what.

I just sent the link to one of my cousins in Israel over IM. She recognizes the performers - apparantly they're all very good.

Popular- they're all really good. It's a great cast.
Instead of the Gary Coleman character they brought Michal Yanay (the blond girl) which used to be a big kids star.
And as for your (very good!) translation-

* At the end of another lousy day I and you too

And dear Akiva (how are you doing mate?)- it was translated by Eli Bijawi (He usually translate plays, he also translated Broadway's "Beauty and the Beast" that played in Israel during 2006)

Elad, Michal's name sounds familiar now that you mention it.
If she was a big kids star I'm sure she was probably on one of the annual Festival records I had growing up.

Tulik, BarbaAbba, Yeladiscso... wow, I need to go back for a visit!

I assume they licensed the designs for the puppets from Rick Lyon, but they had them built by someone local - that's why they don't look EXACTLY the same.

I see - I guess I just thought it would be possible to match the puppets more closely; presumably exact design specifications are available. I'm guessing the London ones and the tour ones look more like the Broadway puppets than these do.

I do like the extra naughtiness - my favorite is Lucy wiping her mouth as she emerges from her tryst!

You probably know Michal from the festigal (the kids festival).. she took part in it several times-
http://youtube.com/watch?v=qqbGPIemILA

She also played Dorothy in the musical "The Wizard" back in 1994-
http://youtube.com/watch?v=gWjlhQu7xCQ

and... she had some really small parts in American movies-

Hi. Does anyone here happen to have the lyrics or know if there's a cast recording of this production? I'd love to hear/sing it.
