    Yes... I agree with you!

    It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great... Something was missing. Gonzo was wrong... on the wing of the plane Gonzo of the Henson years would have loved it! The other muppets would have screamed... Gonzo was not irreverent enough... the heart of the muppet movies usually focuses around Kermit with the other charecters rotating around him like the sun.... You know what I mean... also what was missing was goofy and silly sub plots with the more silly Muppet...

    Gonzo did love being on the wing. He was screaming out of excitement, not terror. At least that how i see it. He was also the one who said they had to jump leading the way. That, combined with the xray and him jumping on the mail conveyor belt just because it looked like fun seems very much like the Gonzo of old.

    I agree it wasn't great but for what it was and how much time it took it seemed like a step in the right direction, as others have said. I'd like to see what the muppets can do when they are not dealing with Santa.

    Best to let the issue pass, please. Even though something is innocently said, on a message board it can still incite a problem. Mainly because folks can't hear the inflection of tone in the words. I fell victim to this before when I first started posting at MC, so I'm a bit more careful since. :)

    Thanks!
