She needs to be smacked like a bad, bad donkey, h'okay.
And didn't she also refer to Gonzo as Fonzo?
To quote Rowlf in the Ideal Muppet dolls commercial, "What kind of an attitude is that?"
My thoughts exactly.
Cat Cora and the Muppets are a great team--they even did a "Give a Day, Get a Disney Day" commercial together, for crying out loud.
Time to stop all this bickering and just sit back, relax and enjoy this series for what it is.
Anyone who gets a chance to work with the Muppets should at least take the time to get their names right! Come on.
It's just as annoying as that news clip from CBS with the whole Katy Perry thing. After the clip, one anchorman claims (promises us, in fact) that Miss Piggy wore outfits like that all the time on Sesame Street. "Check the archives and you will see." he said. Yeah, check all the archives you want, pal. You won't find her.
It's like people who say "I love the Muppets! Jim Hensen is cool! He does Beeker's voice, right? That chef on Sesame Street rox too! He goes 'borp borp borp!' ROFL!"
Methinks she simply flubbed the line and, since it was a live performance, couldn't have a do-over.
I gotta see these when I have the time and all, but that was a big no no in my book. I've said it before, even though she does apparently have a good sense of humor, my problem with the Muppets Cooking with Cat Cora is the Cooking with Cat Cora part. I gotta say, I'm probably one of the few that actually dig Angelo...
But getting a Muppet name wrong (unless it's part of a joke) to a Muppets face is... well... face palm.
The seems to be nervous and stuttering for a bit. It happens. I doubt she thinks his name is Fonzie.
I'm still not impressed with Angelo in these clips. I suppose he's intended for young children, but Elmo has more edge than this guy. I just can't get behind him. I gave him some eyes and tried to make him friendlier, but don't think I'll ever like the guy. Both versions are a little creepy.
On a positive note, I'm looking forward to future new Muppets that grow more organically as characters. A weekly half-hour program would give the Muppets that ability. Let's hope that happens down the line.
I would've made him blue...
and overly emotional...
and a lousy cook that actually can't come up with anything unless he uses someone else's recipe.
well i don't think we'll ever be seeing angelo outside of the muppets kitchen with cat cora. so i don't think we needa worry about it.
and i don't totally hate angelo, but i just don't see him working anywhere BUT in muppets kitchen with cat cora.
Something that makes me cranky about the website. They need to bring the video viewer a bit more center on the larger screen. On a few different computers i've visited the site on, the video player is so far to the right of the screen (and not scrollable to move over) that i can't access the elevator on the playlist so i'm forced to either watch them all in order or click on an episode one at a time to try to bring it closer to the bottom choices (and have to watch the forced commercials in between). If i head Gonzo and Fozzie shouting Happy Birthday one more time, i may scream.
Two new episodes are now online. Featuring appearances by Beauregard, The Muppet Newsman, Yolanda Rat, Kermit, Piggy, and... Andy and Randy. Yeah, Andy and Randy. They're a lot less annoying than one might think... but it's still Andy and Randy. Plus, a Snuggie parody that is FANTASTIC!
Boy, those two were the LAST characters I'd expect to make a return appearance.
EDIT: And you're right; the Snuggie parody is wonderful!
Just saw the two of them. The sandwich episode? THAT is exactly what I wanted to see in Angelo... the way he was freaking out the entire time? Now if we can just keep that sort of thing up, we'd have a much stronger character. And something about these, even though they lack Gonzo, Fozzie and the others in the last 2, overall have a stronger feel to them. I guess it took them a while to work out the kinks.
And HEY! Beau in a speaking role. And when was the last time we saw Yolanda?
Beau was hilarious. "Didn't you use to be Swedish?" was a hilarious line. It's also probably what a lot of casual fans were thinking when they saw Angelo.
Honestly the only weak part is Cat. Would it kill her to take an acting lesson? I know it's not her thing, but please, someone get her an acting coach.
Those two new episodes were great.
WOW! The two new episodes are great!
I never would've expected to see Andy & Randy to make an appearance! I use to love those guys on Muppets Tonight! Another great Muppet duo by Steve Whitmire & Dave Goelz!
