    Your Thoughts: "Muppet Guys Talking" premieres on-line March 16, 2018

    After being so excited and doing a lot of spreading the news and helping promote Muppet Guys Talking, i logged on at 3am on the 16th and was absolutely gutted to discover the Below Stage Pass package that fans were given zero forewarning about and was just just suckerpunched in the gut that...

    Your Thoughts: Muppets Live at the Hollywood Bowl September 8-10, 2017

    I think a technical reason for lip-syncing is due to the background videos - in order for them to match up with the action on stage, they're dependant on the timing being EXACTLY right each time.

    Steve Whitmire has left the Muppets, Matt Vogel to continue as Kermit

    Yes, but they're not talking TO each other as part of the same conversation. I think what a lot of fans wish to see is the various parties involved working harder to come together and try to mediate a solution best for EVERYONE - Henson, Disney, Steve, the brand, the fans. Having access to...

    Steve Whitmire has left the Muppets, Matt Vogel to continue as Kermit

    That was a case where they had two different takes for that end scene and different ones aired in different countries. America got the "Heat Wave" ending in its original broadcast then later (i think an Odyssey airing), we got to see the Tube ending for the first time here. Every now and then...

    ABC officially cancels "The Muppets"

    When i initially heard people reporting on "rumors" about Netflix picking it up, i also wanted to know if they were from credible sources or just fans' wishing...after doing some investigating, i do have it on good authority that Netflix (who as you may remember the series was originally being...

    CRUCIAL #RenewTheMuppets Task - please do ASAP!

    URGENT ‪#‎RENEWTHEMUPPETS‬ TASK! Absolutely CRUCIAL as many Muppet fans take part as soon as possible! Each year USA Today conducts a Save Our Show Survey where people can vote for shows that are on the bubble to be renewed. THEY DIDN'T EVEN GIVE MUPPET FANS THE CHANCE TO SUPPORT THE SHOW since...

    RED ALERT! "The Muppets" fans need to contact ABC **NOW**!!

    Just because "The Muppets" wasn't renewed today doesn't mean it won't be. ABC makes their full renew/cancel announcements in (or just prior to) May. The shows renewed today in the first wave were established enough performers to where its not necessary for ABC execs to pour over tons of charts...

    RED ALERT! "The Muppets" fans need to contact ABC **NOW**!!

    I have a new and better phone number to use: 818-460-7030 - this is new ABC President Channing Dungey's voicemail so not only can you better ensure it's heard by someone who matters but you also aren't limited to 30 seconds like the ABC Comment Line. Just please be polite and respectful if...

    RED ALERT! "The Muppets" fans need to contact ABC **NOW**!!

    Something else worth mentioning...contacting ABC HQ is priority but also take a moment to also contact your local affiliate station. Let them know you loyally watch the show on their station and that you're extremely concerned that the power struggles and personnel shift at the top of the...

    RED ALERT! "The Muppets" fans need to contact ABC **NOW**!!

    Once a cancellation announcement is made, THEN it becomes a lost cause. (Not that cancelled decisions is always "the end" - as my participation in three successful save-our-show campaigns can attest - but the key is to take action and be proactive BEFORE an official announcement...once that...

    RED ALERT! "The Muppets" fans need to contact ABC **NOW**!!

    In a major shake-up at ABC Network, President Paul Lee was ousted today. Lee was "The Muppets"' biggest supporter/advocate and his departure greatly increases the show's chances of cancellation. Muppet fans can't wait on this - if you want the show to be renewed, it's imperative to contact ABC...
