Music is Everywhere
Muppet Central Radio has moved to TorontoCast and returns to TuneIn. Listen to Muppet music 24/7 wherever you go with TuneIn apps and devices.
In regards to music licensing and legal fees, apparently there is a big difference between "broadcast rights" and "home video rights."
That being said I was wondering...if Disney was to include TMS on its streaming service, would streaming services technically count as broadcast or home video...
I never got a chance to see the O2 show myself. But I wonder...how does a multi-city tour in the style of the Hollywood Bowl and O2 shows sound? In my home city of Seattle, they'd look right at home at the Paramount Theatre...just like in TMS!
As anyone ever noticed that the description of the Peter Sellers episode on Time Life's TBOTMS collection misnames the chiropractor sketch with Link Hogthrob as "(Sellers) plays a strange doctor on Veteranarian's Hospital..." I looked at the chiropractor sketch and the only similarity is in the...
No! Just when he proved himself worthy of being the next Link Hogthrob in the new Pigs in Space shorts?!
Okay, so Kermit has been recast, but what about his other characters--Rizzo, Beaker, Bean, Statler, Link, Ernie--who should perform them?
I've also noticed that. Also (sorta OT here) on Crank Yankers, the Lou Villman from season 3 also had a swinging uvula (noticeable very time he exclaims "Wow!"), while on the other puppets uvulas were nonexistent...for some strange reason.
Anyway, it's all what the designer had in mind, I guess...
Here's one that hasn't been mentioned:
In the S3 episode with Sylvester Stallone, there is a sketch where Fozzie saws a robot in half. As he starts to saw, the robot begins whining, "mama, mama..."
Fozzie's reaction is a real head-scratcher IMO. To my ears at least, he seems to say to the...
I had one at one time--
I was watching a "extra super special exclusive director's cut" of TMM, which not only included the deleted Statler and Waldorf scenes, but also four previously unheard-of scenes. They involved the running gag of Sweetums being left behind and forced to race to the...
While we're discussing ideas for new Muppet projects, I'd like to mention an idea I've talked about before in another thread:
Pigs in Space: The Animated Series
PIS:TAS is a sci-fi-comedy-action cartoon that would have very similar aspects to the Duck Dodgers series that ran on Cartoon Network...
Since we're talking about who should voice the characters, here are some of my VA suggestions for any "new" Muppet Babies:
Link Hogthrob--Jeff Bennett
Swedish Chef--Matt Hill?
I'll admit that even I'm guilty of this crime sometimes:
Example #1: As a toddler I often watched TMTM on VHS and often didn't know the names of characters I hadn't already seen on Muppet Babies. However, when I first heard Dr. Teeth's name mentioned, my 3-year-old self somehow began referring...
Maybe this show wasn't "just right" for the Muppets as a franchise. They'll get another chance sometime.
I've noticed something interesting though, it seems as though every attempt to bring the Muppets back to primetime TV in the post-TMS years heretofore have been cancelled after a small...
