What a great time for Muppets!
I know right? And he's sitting next to Kermit. Lol!
Thanks for all the pics and that great video segment!! I really feel like the first famous Muppet shoulda been there... ROWLF!! Ah well, maybe he'll just get his own star someday?
Found another video. It's much longer and better quality. And best of all it has Lisa's speech, which is phenomenal. Oh and a little extra something for the fans at the end.
Wow. Did anybody notice that this star is for Film? Kermit's and Jim's stars were awarded for their work in television. It's nice to see they diversified with this one.
I'll watch it when I can get to a computer I'm only on my iPod right now. :/
I wonder if this means, officially, that Kermit and Jim Henson, and to a lesser extent Big Bird, have 2 of the 5 stars? I mean, that could be the reason they gave em "Film" cause Jim Henson and Kermit have the "TV" one.
Hooray for The Muppets! First, Jim got his star, then Big Bird, then Kermit, and now the whole gang gets their own star on the Walk of Fame! This proves that the Muppets are back, big time!
i think miss piggy actually does deserve one too
Here are some photos that someone posted on Youtube. I'm going to link instead of embed, just b/c I have no idea whose this is and it seems more polite. There are some really good pics, and some amusing chicka-bow-wow music.
Edit: I was GOING to link, but I guess links to YT embed automatically?
Here you go guys. A bit of a better quality vid of the ceremony.
I so wish I was there to see them but I am praying that at the New York Pops "Jim Henson's Musical World" event at Carnegie Hall, The Muppets appear (especially considering I'm flying all the way from Australia for it!!!)
Thanks for posting the video. Muppet studios posted this one.
Not as much footage but it has some more of the interviews
Uhm, that music is... interesting. LOL! Thanks for posting. There are some good pics in there even if they did call Lisa, Cheryl.
Thanks for the vids, everyone! It's the next best thing to traveling all the way to the other side of the country to be there. Have I ever mentioned I love the internet?
According to Matt Vogel's twitter, the man on the far right of the Muppeteer picture is Bruce Lanoil. Mystery solved, thank you, Matt!
Even though the audio is bad...it's great to see it! Wish one of the entertainment stations would have carried it. You saw all the cameras...there had to be SOMEONE who has professional audio and video.
I was there and lucky enough to talk with some of the performers afterwards, including Peter Linz and Muppet legend Dave Goelz. They were really great with the fans...even the furry ones. Dave and Peter both took pictures with me and my dog, haha. Probably one of the stranger photo ops they've been a part of. And my shirt's fuzzy because scrappy was shedding from all the excitement, I'm not part muppet or anything.
That's so cool!
That first picture is cracking me up becuase I've seen that "security guard" looking guy in a lot of photos from the event. He always looks incredibly annoyed. I guess Muppets aren't his thing.
SO AMAZING!!!!! :-D I do wish we could have seen more of the interviews though..
Walter:Almost as great an honor as standing next to Miss Piggy!
Piggy: You gotta love this kid. -(who is he again?)-
Kermit: Coffee Boy
LOL!!! Let it be known That Walter's official place is that of coffee boy!! That's one less thing for Scooter to do!
It's great that Eric pulled triple duty - does anyone know which character he played throughout the day was?
