    Is it me or is that Behemoth with Thog and Sweetums? I even see Link, I think! (Hey, I just rhymed!)

    Taking the fuzzy crowd scene, doing quite the opposite, I shrank it down and was able to make out a couple other characters... crazy and counter-intuitive, huh?

    I also found Crazy Harry, Link, Strangepork, and I think Marvin Suggs...

    I also WANT to say I saw Sal Manilla, Wanda, and some of the Frackles (Mo or Boppity), but the picture is far too blurry to tell. It's hard to tell which are humans and which are Muppets, but seems like they're getting the most of their characters. Heck, when was Thog even in a Muppet Movie last? All I remember is the Rainbow Connection ending reprise and maybe the Wedding sequence in MTM (I just rebought it on DVD since I can't find where the heck my VHS went off to).

    Song seems pretty good too... Beaker's clearly Meemmeeemeeing in it. I wanna say Link has a line.

    The video clips aren't that good, but the images are interesting. So glad they finally rebuilt Thog (and I feel I can see hard-to-describe differences in the new Thog).

    I can't believe the reports being concerned of them being spoilers for the ending. Somehow I have a feeling this takes place before the telethon, not right before the credits.

    It's kind of like a painting - if you're too close it looks like random brush strokes, but if you step away you see a clearer picture.

    It really sounds like Link. And what's impressive about that is that it REALLY sounds like Link.

    It sounds sort of like Link yelling down a hall underwater... but hey, what do you expect from across the way off another building. I just thought about it... if that really IS Link and he really does get a line of song, that could be the biggest role he had in a movie since the end credits of the first one.

    I assume you mean Angus MacGonacle. If he is there then I wonder if The Muppet Mindset had contact with the producers... ;)

    I think you mean Angus McGonagle. ;)

    And... I have no comment at this time. :p

    (Except that no, no we did not have contact with the producers--at least not to my knowledge!)

    Man o man, it does my Muppet Freak heart good to see so many minor/obscure puppets there - especially when you KNOW quite a few had to be rebuilt/refurbished. And the fact that Disney actually took the time and expense to rebuild Thog (who will probably never be real heavily featured) just shows their commitment to the cast, the fans, the history, and the brand!

    Seeing a crowd scene of Muppets in a move that includes such a wide range of major/minor/obscure characters actually excites me more than the finales of The Muppet Movie just because at that time they pretty much grabbed all Muppets they could at that time. A scene like this one is a bit more random and planned as to who to include and i love this mixture!
