    When will The Muppet Show Seasons 4-5 and Muppets Tonight arrive on DVD?

    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...

    Fozzie Bear voicing ‘Dr. Enamel’ on Big City Greens

    Well, when it comes to Muppet Performers who've lent their voices to cartoons, there's Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Dave Goelz, Kevin Clash, Bill Baretta, and now Eric Jacobson!

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Take The O2, July 13-14th 2018

    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!

    "The Happytime Murders" premieres August 24, 2018

    Saw the trailer recently. I have no problem with its raunchiness, it's just similar to what I'm already familiar with from Crank Yankers.

    Little things we've noticed

    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...

    Dave & Brian watch Muppets Christmas Carol

    Speaking of this video, I wonder why they didn't explain how they did the scene where Gonzo accidentally lit Rizzo on fire. That would've been awfully painful for Steve...

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

    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?

    Jokes You Don't Get/Misheard Lines/Lyrics

    I'll admit that when I saw a trailer for the video release of MTI, I thought they were singing, "We've got Captain Fever..." Who's he?

    A Question about Floyd and Mahna Mahna's Eyes

    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...

    Dirtyest Muppet Show joke/routine

    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...

    Dreams about Muppets...

    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...

    ABC officially cancels "The Muppets"

    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...

    Why the Time is Right for a New Muppet Babies

    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 Denise--Jennifer Hale Beauregard--Phil LaMarr Rizzo--Ben Diskin Swedish Chef--Matt Hill?

    Top Annoying Misnaming People Do

    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...

    ABC officially cancels "The Muppets"

    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...
