    Well, even You Tube clips often will constantly pause while they're playing, at least on my computer. My method of watching those is playing it through once without really watching or anything. Then replay it, since it's usually so much better the second time through. Forgive me if I'm repeating myself. I guess I said that before. Lol.

    On YouTube the user can pause the clip and let it load. On Muppets.com you have to watch it all choppy first and allow it to excruciatingly ruin the joke and then rewatch, but it doesn't allow the pause-cache method. A lot of the Disney site bugs me that way. Their design team isn't considering the users the way they should.

    That's what I hate about legal video sites. I understand they don't want people lifting them and everything, but they won't let you pause and do something else while it loads.

    It gets downright terrible when they throw advertisements into the mix. I once watched an official website episode of South Park, and after watching the first part 3 times, I gave up.

    That said, I didn't have all that problem watching the haunted Holidays page. though, I suppose it's some sort of conspiracy to make people buy Fios... :smirk:

    You almost have to wonder if the muppets.com Bunson/Beaker Tech Support clip "Why...This...Takes...So......Long!" clip was the writers/performers' little "yeah - the tech issues with this site bug us too!"

    Muppets

    and it seems that they're now using the MUPPET STUDIOS instead of the MUPPETS STUDIO.

    These latest clips are excellent, I see more classic Muppet magic in those two short clips than I did throughout my entire sitting watching Letter's to Santa, which was a move in the right direction but still felt like a kids movie to me, now these latest Muppet clips i'd consider family entertainment and not just something else to sit the kids in front of :)

    Whoever is writting this is genius, it just feels so much like i was watching a sketch on the Muppet Show again. I started to feel like a huge Muppet fan again when i first saw those Muppet clips at Disney World, then the awsome clips re-introducing the Muppet monsters and now these. The Muppets after 13 years are finally back, the Muppets went downhill in my opinion after Muppet Treasure Island,I watched everything that came out after but i didn't feel the need to re-watch it over and over again as i usually did :sympathy:

    I'm so glad i've returned to this board, I really need people to talk too now after i watch something to do with the Muppets, unlike before when for example after I watch Muppets`Wizard of Oz had nothing to say about the film, I was actually embaressed people who knew what a big muppet fan I was would get around to seeing it and think "are they such a big deal as he makes them out to be?":concern:

    You've come to the right place, King Prawn. :D If you want even MORE Muppet goodness, you can check out my blog The Muppet Mindset. *end shameless plug* :halo:
  10. Okay seriously, they need to decide! Is it Muppets Studio or Muppet Studios! Hehe...I have clips of my announcer guy saying both just in case. :)

    So, they don't know where to plant their 's'?

    Muppet Studios sounds best, and that is what it was from the begining.
    Where does it say Muppets studio?

    Look on the back of the recent Letters to Santa DVD or at the end of any recent project and the credits will usually say "Muppets Studio LLC". It wasn't always like that, but Disney has been using the plural tense for a while now. However, the recent Disney parks ads reflect a "Muppet Studios" typed tag at the bottom of the clips. Tough Pigs had a whole bit about it on their site. I prefer Muppet Studios.

    I am absolutely loving the way the Muppets are being filmed, I don't know who has been the cinematographer or what lens and post production they are using...but between Letters to Santa and the
    new Kermit-Gonzo-Chef in the Kitchen Disney spot, the Muppets haven't looked this good in ages!

    Just amazing they are using the Muppets as the flagship brand for 2010's main Disney promotion.

    Watching all of these points out something I mentioned a while back...

    All the scenes shot at Disneyworld either feature dubbed shouts or instrumental montages with narration. Just in case anyone was talking about why certain puppeteers weren't there.

    But Man, I'm just lovin' this all over. Especially the Chef segment.

    Sorry for popping in like this, but all of the theme park footage for these ads was filmed in Disneyland in California, not Disneyworld. :)

    Please understand, I am in NO way trying to be rude, I just felt that I should point that out. :)

    I love these videos. :excited:

    California is prettier and less swampy. ;)
    (Says the Californian)

    However, maybe Kermit would prefer the swampy nature of Florida.

    Funny thing is I initially DID put down Disneyland, and I just got confused for a second. I didn't catch my mistake until you pointed it out. :search:

    Those are some great pictures. I must add that most of the characters are looking fabulous.

    However, there's still the strangeness and inconsistency of Miss Piggy's facial ratios especially in the eye area. They look a little flat and cartoony. And they seem to be crossing Pepe's eyes in the classic Muppety eye focus, but he's not supposed to have that. His expressions stem from his awkward gaze. Hope these get ironed out. Otherwise, I'm ecstatic!

    I love new poser pictures. :)
