    Hmm...let's see what the rules have to say about that. Air fares...(scrolling)...air fares...ah, here we go:

    "In keeping with the traditional zaniness of the Muppets, grand prize winners will pay only twelve (12) dollars for their flight. Winners will not get a meal. Grand prize winners will ride in comfort in ninth class and have their choice of "Frog", "Bear" or "Whatever" crate to ride in. (Private television included in choice of "Whatever" crate)."


    Wocka Wocka! Seriously though, air fare info is located in the official rules in the "Prize" section.

    Please tell me I'm not the only one who entered every day since the sweepstakes started!

    Has anyone here gotten a "Congratulations" e-mail? The rules state that the winner is supposed to get notified on or around the 20th, which is today! Make sure to check your bulk inbox as well, as these kinds of e-mails sometimes get messed up and go to the wrong inbox.

    Good Luck to Everyone!

    I actually won the sweepstakes. Came across this bulletin board when I typed in Muppets Wizard of Oz and Tribeca Film Festival. This free trip cost my family over $1,000, but it was a lot of fun. My 3 yo definitely didn't like it when Miss Piggy (as the evil witch) melted. Ashanti looked beautiful at the premiere. David Alan Grier was there as well.

    A very big congradulations on winning! I wish some of the Muppets/performers could have been in attendance, but nonetheless it sounded like an awesome trip.

    I have a couple of Ashanti and one of a scene from the end of the movie aside from the pictures of my family. I took one of Kermit the Frog and Robert DiNero introducting the movie, but I was so far away from them you can't tell much about it. I'll try to figure out how to post the pictures.

    2. Does he have many lines
    3. Did You happen to see Beauregard
    4. How was Eric Jacobson's singing voce for Piggy and/or how were the Electric Mayhem's voices.

    That last picture...did you say it was from near the end of the film?
  12. Mimi Q

    Mimi Q New Member

    Yes, right before the credits roll. I waited until the end of the movie to take a picture cause I didn't know if we were supposed to be taking pictures or not.

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Cool. Thanks.

    Mimi Q, that's awesome! I hope you all had a great time with the trip!

    What expenses did you have to cover that cost so much?

    Did you get to meet anybody involved in the film?

    What are your reviews of the film, the character voices, etc?
  15. Mimi Q

    Mimi Q New Member

    The expenses were just for my family of four to sightsee in NYC- cost of attractions, cabs, food, souvenirs, etc... The actual prize just covered the air fare and hotel. They did throw in a car from the airport to our hotel.

    No, we didn't speak with anyone involved in the film. We just saw the stars. We were supposed to get a meet and greet with Kermit and Miss Piggy, but we didn't. The media was all over them before the premiere.

    I am not a muppet expert like many on this board, so I can't really comment on the voices. The movie was good. I didn't think it was great. I don't think Ashanti is a very good actress- just my humble opinion. I really didn't expect Dorothy to be an waitress living in a double wide trailer, Toto to be a shrimp, or Poppyfields to be a nightclub- you get the idea.

    Another Nightclub scene? Curious. That must be where Clifford was in the photos.

  18. Mimi Q

    Mimi Q New Member

    No, they were surrounded by the press. We couldn't get any good pictures of them. We were supposed to get to do a meet and greet with them, but we didn't.

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    That's a big-time shame. I'm sorry to hear that. It would have been the coolest day of my life to get to meet the Muppets...

    That's disappointing. I'm sorry to hear that, but still, I envy your cool trip!
