By the way, getting back to the Muppets movie for a minute, (I'm not sure if the following has been addressed yet, but I'm not about to read through this entire thread so here goes my thought)....
For those people who are complaining about certain Muppets not getting much screen time, or...
Yeah, that's true.
Still, it helped that it was with Disney, they have the muscle and pull to get things done.
On the subject of Bear, there is a possibility that it will rerun on the Disney Junior channel launching next month.
I honestly hate to say it (seriously), but it seems to me that...
If Disney had bought Fraggle Rock, we would have probably had a Fraggle Rock movie by now. Or at least some Fraggle Rock viral videos.
But to reiterate for anyone glancing though this thread (you can never be too blunt on the Internet);Disney does NOT own Fraggle Rock (Or The Jim Henson Company...
By the way, I'm not sure if this has been stated before, but I just want to make an important point;
Regardless of the nitpicking and comments about what should have/could have been done-you can't please everyone, but the most important thing is the the film recived critical acclaim and was a...
Remember the scene outside of Tex Richman's building?
And of course Hollywood Boulevard.
.....Actually, its important to note that in movies, whenever the Muppets are walking around in the real world, its always a "closed set"! So what you said is kind of moot.
I'm sorry that the...
Well, in the novelization, Fozzie had more lines. (He spoke during the breakfast and dinner scenes) and at the end, Gonzo actually took the tine to say goodbye to Piggy and Fozzie. And a scene with Rizzo talking to Gonzo on the boarding house roof.
Just lots of little things here and there that...
Yeah, I believe that pilot was called Tinsletown. (I saw something about it on the Muppet wiki)
I agree about the hit or miss remark about Puppet Up. I too, saw the show recently. It was fun and lively, and I generally liked it, but some of the humor was just too easy.
The Henson Company REALLY needs to get focused, find a good business partner, and do something with the Fraggle Rock characters!
Viral videos would be a good start.
I'm glad that Sid the Science Kid and Dinosaur Train have been successful for them, but they really need to do new things with...
That's just how things go sometimes. Its rough, but what can you do?
The Muppets From Space junior novelization also had many scenes that I wished were in the actual Muppets from Space movie.
At least they found a place to use bits of that scene (in a different way) in the end credits.
I don't want to get into tedious details, but I just wanted to pop in here and say that generally, I enjoyed the film very much. Its the best Muppet movie in a long time. Its a love-letter to die hard fans.
Beaker, I should have known that after years of waiting for this movie, that when it came out, you would be ungrateful.
All you can do is complain about what was NOT in the film and say "the film could have been better"? Read that again out-loud.
That's gratitude for you.
This is nothing...
Sorry to bring this thread back up, but to answer the question;
Yes, as it turns out, The Jim Henson Company was indeed somewhat involved with the film;
According to the film's credits (I also found it on Muppet Wiki) the costumes were provided by Jim Henson's Creature Shop.
And of course, the...
