    This review sums up why the world needs the Muppets now more than ever:

    To me that's edgy. If everything is "ironic", cynical and "edgy", then being goofy, honest and such would be the new edgy. I personally cannot stand the current time period we live in...where everything has to be instant twitter liked/disliked mashed smart phone texted up, rebooted and put to a dubstep beat.

    Piggy has been going more full bodied in interviews...meaning like in SNL, we see her fully standing. On Fallon, the illusion of her and Piggy appearing without looking puppeteered was a neat trick

    Carl and Behemoth are not full-body characters.

    I take this to mean that Sweetums, Thog and The Mutations are the only full-body Muppets in the movie, correct?

    As a sidenote, I'm not asking if any other long-absent obscure characters are in the film that we did not see in the trailers, because I really want to be surprised on that one when I go out to see the film at the theaters.

    You don't really see Big Mean Carl and Behemoth completly in the movie, but they are usally full bodied, aren't they?
  11. Duke Remington

    Duke Remington Active Member

    They're not. Carl and Behemoth are live-hand puppets (like Fozzie, Rowlf, etc.), just larger.

    So, are there any other full-body Muppets in the film besides Sweetums, Thog and The Mutations or not?

    I don't really know, there might be some in the backaround but they don't have big parts. You do see the feet of a lot of Muppets though. I was looking through Muppet Wiki and found out that in certain scenes the Muppets were radio controlled.

    Whoops sorry!! I try my best from giving away spoilers,
    But even though I did say this you will still be amazed becuase I didn't tell anyone about what scenes were radio controlled and what wasn't.
    You will be amazed by the ingenious puppeteering. After the movie I ran to my computer and the first thing I searched for was behind-the-scenes videos on how they did everything.

    I checked it up on muppet wiki it says that Behemoth is a full bodied Muppet.

    I can't remember which sketch it is but Behemoth did appear on the series as a full bodied character at one point. They completed the puppet by putting him in overalls and putting feet on him. Anyone? What am I thinking of? I want to say it's a femile guest star. but besides that Behemoth is typically a large live-hand character like Bobo or Carl.

    nevermind, found it...it was a sketch with Sandy Duncan.

    A lot of the promos heavily feature Behemoth...kind of odd if he's not much in the film. Then again Disney is pulling a retcon by featuring Pepe in a lot of the movie promos even though he's not much in the film. Regarding Behemoth, several of the promos show oddball stuff in his mouth...from a human hand that's supposed to be Jason Segel's to Pepe...so perhaps he is only full bodied in some shots and is more like Bobo.

    I wonder if that scene's in the movie at all (we'll see in a few days).
