Muppets Take To The Skies (Playstation) December 2002
Clear the runway! This Muppet adventure soars (and hops) from Country Fair Foolishness to Pirate Island insanity in a series of thrilling air shows. Play as your favorite Muppet in ariel acrobatics, balooning buffoonery, ridiculous races, and chicken herding! It's felt, fur and furious flying with these daring Muppet aviators!
Sounds like 'Muppet Racemania' in planes really, but definitely looking forward to it. I guess there will be levels for each Muppet movie just like Racemania, and maybe it's being done by the same people as the last two. Quite a nice concept, hope there's some exploding penguins in there too, it's not fair if the sheep get to be herded.
It astounds me that more hasn't been made of this by Henson, not even a press release and no word from the software company and nothing on their site. I wonder if it was shown at the ECTS in London over the weekend, as i know it's a British company that produced the other games although TDK Mediactive is the company that is supposed to have the PSone rights now but i thought their deal releases weren't until next year and theres nothing on their site.
I typed it all out too, So im gonna post it anywa, Wasted effort - LOL !
That was Chicken Herding !
The Muppets Take To The Skies - Playstation - December 2002

Its Fur, Felt and Furious Flying with these daring Muppet aviators!
Chickens, Foxes ..... it doesn't make a difference - it's still discrimination against fame seeking Penguins.
Even stranger, it's a flying game and chickens don't fly - how can you herd them ?
Ahhh - the important topics discussed and debated at Muppet Central !
I hope it will not only be for PS2...i only have the older playstation.
Well, there's always that ps2 emulator to download
i think we can get the word out...
Hold on...is this for psone? If so, get ready for more bad pixelated polygons! Muppet Race Mania was so muddy and at times insanely aggrivating(due to console limitations) I cant believe I spent so much time on it. I suspect this new game, if its the same system will look pretty close to it. The PS2 would be a better choice, but for Muppet games they like to go the low brow way.
It's funny, the Game Boy Advance version of Monsters Inc looks and plays wayyyyyyy better than the psone version.
I think it is for PSone but TDK also have the license for Gameboy, PS2, PC and Xbox - you will defintiely be seeing these kinda games on those platforms next year.
As for Racemania - you may scoff now but at the time it was the bee's knee's !
>>>As for Racemania - you may scoff now but at the time it was the bee's knee's <<<
Dude, I remember I bought it when it came out...early 2000(or late 1999) and that was no bee knees, nor 'the bomb'. By the standards, the Sega Dreamcast ran circles around what Psone could do, as psone's polygon capacity even then was quite low. I did however like the fact so many characters were in it, and even FR references.
TDK probably has the rights to Gamecube, X-BOX, PS2, Game Boy Advance, and PSONE.
You're an opinionated little lab assistant, aren't you Beaker?
Technically that may be true, but it comes down to more than that - specifically the user base in homes, and also the target group for the game. More families own PSone, and being a Muppet game it is aimed at a slightly younger audience and they are more likely to own Playstation. Anyway - where's the Dreamcast now ? I think there are more people in the states who breed rats than own that rare species of a console.
Dreamcast still was a good system, it was just the pressure of the PS2, X-BOX, and Gamecube that forced Sega to go third parties and that money problems.
It wasn't a bad system technically, but at least here in the UK - the majority of the games just weren't significantly better than PS1 (at least not to the point of things like PS2 and Xbox) and there were less of them.

Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! hehe, to be fair I actually played through 99% of the game. For some reason I could never find that 1% on the MAlory Gallyer an dgave up. What were your fave levels? Mine were the MFS levels for sure! Loved how so many TMS characters and even FR were in it...just wish it was for Dreamcast, as the graphics were a bit muddy and the play mechanics off.
