    I agree, Frogster; I'm not loving what I hear of the song, and you hit the nail on the head...it definitely sounded Muppet Baby-esque. BUT! It's only one song.

    You know, I was wondering if any of the other full-body characters will make an appearance. The scene in that image/video looks like the kind of scene I'd expect to see more full-body monsters and Fletcherbird in.

    I wonder if Matt Vogel will be performing Thog, even if Thog gets no dialogue (of course Martin Robinson would also make a good Thog, since Thog and Snuffy have similar voices, but Robinson doens't perform in Muppet productions outside of Sesame Street very often). And I wonder who will be performing Sweetums in this (assuming he speaks). John Henson performed him for most of the time since Richard Hunt's death, but hasn't since 2005, Brian Henson hasn't performed in any Muppet productions since then, and The Jim Henson Company hasn't been involved with the Muppets since 2007 or 2008 (though the Henson studio is being used in this movie).

    In Letters to Santa Sweetums was performed by Noel MacNeil and in the "Give a Day, Get a Day" promotions he was performed by Matt Vogel. I feel it would be fitting for David Rudman to perform Sweetums, since he's taken over so many of Richard Hunt's characters (then again, I would have expected Rudman to have performed Sweetums in those productions, made after he took over as Scooter and Janice).

    I wonder if The Jim Henson Company gave Disney measurements for all characters Disney gained. If not then I guess they'd need to do some guesswork on any full-body character who hasn't been used in year.

    And if only Disney would give Sesame Workshop the $20,000 needed to rebuild Bruno...

    Still, if they are claiming to encompass/reference a lot of their history, MB is a part of that. Personally, I like a lot of MB songs.

    I dunno about you, but less than 10 seconds of a fuzzy sounding song gives me snap judgments. I was truly expecting songs from a Muppet Movie to sound EXACTLY like a depressing Sondheim score. :rolleyes:

    And Muppet Babies songs do not sound like that. Trust me.

    I looked back at the opening of TMS for reference, and Sweetums was about as tall as Thog's nose. Now he seems to be about as tall as Thog's chin, though it's tough to tell what with odd angles, zooming and whatnot (though some whatnots might help in comparison). So it would seem he is taller, but not as much taller as I first assumed. I think the pictures just lack adequate perspective.

    So, I realize there's a chance someone already posted this video, but I just have to make sure:



    It's Chris Cooper being all evil, and you get to see Gonzo for a second. And Jason Segel too! :)

    Another video of the dance number and with bit more of the song included. Notice how stiff Thog is.

    What I like about this one, is I think I can see Lips.
  9. Dearth Active Member

    I assume YOU mean Angus McGonagle. ;)

    Oh wait, I was stuck in a time warp. We already did this bit.

    Hmm, I'm not sure, I still think it's Lew Zealand. But I'm happy to be wrong :p

    Yeah...I did think it was a bit "How do you show that you love him?" from Enchanted, styled. But! I've actually been singing this song already while out and about...Just humming it and stuff, so its obviously catchy!

    We are only seeing a small part of the movie here i think. We have no idea what or who will be in the movie.
  15. In enhanced picture, in the front row - just to (our) left of Link and Strangepork (next to what MIGHT be Janice) - what we previously thought might be Animal may be the Frank Oz Country Trio puppet. And it looks like it may be Nigel to the right of Strangepork.

    No matter what, we should be thankful we're getting original music for this one. I'm so excited. I hope we don't get the entire film leaked to us piece by piece though... cause no matter how hard we try to resist these clips, we inevitably can not.
