    Your Thoughts: "Families Stand Together" Sesame Street Special

    You mean this guy? Yes, he looks like a Muppet version of Mr. Nelson. I got word straight from some of the Sesame Street puppeteers that the character was designed to be a caricature of Jerry Nelson, and they ever called the character "Jerry" on the set.

    Your Thoughts: Dinosaur Train

    I caught the show today and loved it! Great characters, great educational content, and super catchy songs (I still can't get the theme song out of my head). And if you want to learn a bit about what went into developing and creating the show, check out these great interviews on YouTube...

    I wouldn't call Kramer, George, Jerry, and Elaine "average people." They were pretty much extremists too - albeit extremists about the small things, social decorum, petty injustices, and airline peanuts.

    Dark Crystal Spoof on Robot Chicken

    I thought their Dark Cristal sketch was pretty well done. Mixing The Dark Crystal with a modern Hip-Hop flavor was not only a great juxtaposition; but the whole thing was pretty well done. I thought the Fraggle Rock parody from a while back, was pretty good too. It was as much a parody of...

    As I said earlier: just because (1) someone's initial question has been answer or the main issue of a thead has passed, why shut down any further discussion from occuring? And (2) if a member has crossed the line, is attacking others, and is breaking the rules, then deal with that individual and...

    Who makes the Muppets now?

    Yes, Puppet Heap is run by former Henson staff - and many of the builders worked on the Muppets when they were still with Henson. Now as for why Disney went with Puppet Heap rather than Henson's Creature Shop... there were several reasons, but the main one had to do with the almighty dollar.

    "this discussion is now a moot point"... so? There are many threads throughout this forum that are primarily irrelevant and the subjects have become fairly moot at this point in time - but we don't lock them down and halt any further discussion from happening just because the original question...

    Who makes the Muppets now?

    The Muppets owned by Disney (Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Piggy, and the gang) are primarily built and maintained by Puppet Heap. The Muppets owned by Sesame Workshop (Big Bird, Oscar, Elmo, Grover, and the gang) are primarily built and maintained by Jim Henson's Creature Shop.

    STOP with the thread closures already!

    ugh...really? Closed? Why? I was actually just about to post about the Dark Crystal parody on Robot Chicken. Can someone show me where in the forum rules it says we can't talk about things like this?
