    I disagree, actually. I think if Bill is given the chance to have a scene as Rowlf he'll really shine through. When Rowlf appeared in a segment on "From the Balcony" and performed "The Christmas Party Sing-Along" on the "Green and Red Christmas" album he was very, very Rowlf-like, and I think the only way to keep him like that is to keep giving him scenes.

    Agreed. Bobo and Tambor had great timing and chemistry, and Bobo is just an all-around great character to have back.

    I just noticed something in the pictures at MNF. Look at Animal. Is it just me or dies he look properly hairy. Not bald like in the early 90s and not overly-shaggy like on muppets.com He actually looks like Animal again. Excellent!

    Well maybe I'm wrong about Rowlf and Bill.

    Honestly I don't dought Bill as a preformer, and the times I have heard him do Rowlf I thought it was great. I thought Rowlf was at his best in the Game "Muppet Party Cruise" where he had a pretty big part in that game.

    That would have been great if Bobo and Jeffery had scenes together, again....Maybe they could make a reference from Muppets In Space and say something like this:

    Bobo: You're not bad as the wizard.
    Jeffery: Thank you. I do try my best.
    Bobo: Much better than the government agent you played in the last muppet film you were in.
    Jeffery: Thanks, I think? (Jeff has a baffled look)

    I liked it a lot when the guy yells to Piggy, "You're not even in this scene!" Lol. Good classic humor never gets old. ;)

    i am really hoping to see sweetums, rowlf, scooter, janice and many others make a comback in this movie. i have never seen any of the muppet movies or muppet specials. ik that most of the movies are on dvd but where can i watch the specials? i am also in the proccess of watching all the episodes of the muppet show since i was born in 1996, by that time the muppet show was kinda long gone. and i grew up watching so much sesame street it's not even funnny. i am extremely exicted for this new speical. i think it's gonna be fantastic. and i love that it will be on NBC. idk why but i just do. idk if anyone had said this yet but i heard that it only took 2 weeks to shoot. i might be wrong. and there are gonna be a bunch of celebrities. the only 2 that i know in it are madison pettis and whoppi goldberg. but i just hope the electric mayhem makes a HUGE comeback. i would really love to see more of them. espiecally janice because she has been in the back round for years now. i wanna see all of the muppets that have been either non speaking parts or have just been more in the backround. im sure someone said this too but it is supposed to air on NBC on December 17 at 8 pm. i am so excited!
