    RIP Muppet Show Guests

    Rest in peace to Cloris Leachman. I always enjoyed her performances in the Mel Brooks films she did with him. Not only was she was a guest star on The Muppet Show, but she had a cameo as Lew Lord's secretary in The Muppet Movie which was pretty funny.

    RIP Muppet Show Guests

    The double whammy of two Muppet Show guest stars making their earthly departure on the same day hasn't been felt since Milton Berle and Dudley Moore's deaths. Rest in peace to both Helen Reddy and Mac Davis. I'll make an effort to rewatch Reddy's episode since I remember it being a rather...

    Muppets Now Episode 2 - Fever Pitch

    In comparison to the pilot episode, this episode was a noticeable improvement in quality. The Muppet Labs segment with Dr. Busen Honeydrew, Beaker, and Beak-R was the major highlight of the episode. The Swedish Chef segment was also funny. Miss Piggy's lifestyle segment was just okay. One major...

    My ideas for special edition DVD and Blu-ray sets of The Muppet Movie and The Great Muppet Caper

    Those are the most logical ideas for supplemental features if they ever do a Blu-Ray re-release. I would also love an audio commentary from the few remaining Muppet performers that worked on those films, but it's doubtful that's ever going to happen.

    The evolution of Kermit the Frog by Distory...

    I enjoyed watching it. Most of the stuff I was already familiar with, but I enjoyed the passion from the host.

    Muppets Now Episode 1 - Due Date (Pilot)

    It was just okay. The first episode was a series of unrelated segments, but some of the segments did work. The Kermit photo-bombing segment was one of the highlights, but it got one laugh from me and that's when I saw the Kermit drinking tea meme. I did like the Swedish Chef skit which was a...

    RIP Muppet Show Guests

    I'm so sad to learn that Phyllis George has passed away too soon. She was quite lovely in her Muppet Show episode. Here are a few highlights:

    Muppet Show's Season 1 writer Jack Burns passed away at 86...

    Some of my favorite sketches from season one of The Muppet Show were probably written by him, and The Muppet Movie was beautifully written from start to finish. Rest in peace, Jack.

    Remembering Caroll Spinney (December 26, 1933-December 8, 2019)

    I meant to post this a day ago when I heard the news while at work. I was at lost for words as I felt the weight of a man whose valued as a national treasure and a pillar of children's entertainment and puppetry has left us. What's been said about Caroll has been said, but I'll say I appreciated...

    RIP Muppet Show Guests

    Rest in peace, Kaye Ballard. Coincidentally, I did watch some reruns of Match Game 74 last week on GSN in which she was a celebrity panelist. Here are my statistics of The Muppet Show guest stars are still alive: Season One: 13 (2 from Mummenschanz and Richard Bradshaw are included) Season...

    Rest in peace, Roy Clark. I will re-watch his Muppet Show episode in his honor.

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

    I streamed the documentary on Friday, and I loved it. To get it off of my chest, I wasn't too bothered by the unconventional filming techniques in which the roundtable interviews were filmed hand-held and you can see the camera operators in the background. I'm glad Frank posted a video on...

    Frank Oz on Reddit AMA 1/4/2018

    I can't wait for it. I hope he answers my questions like if he will come back to Sesame Street and do a Bert or Cookie Monster sketch since he hasn't done one of those in years.

    American Masters: This is Bob Hope (PBS) November 25th 2017

    I like Bob Hope, but I don't see the documentary listed in my area. Instead, I see Ron Howard's Beatles documentary, Eight Days a Week, which I plan on seeing in less than twenty minutes.

    Video: Kermit (Matt Vogel) and Fozzie (Eric Jacobson) in Muppet Thought of the Week

    Putting the voice aside, the gestures that Matt was making as Kermit in the video remind me too much of Constantine, especially with that V-shaped mannerism Kermit makes with his lips when he's annoyed. Matt used that facial gesture a lot in Muppets Most Wanted. Again, he needs more time and...

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

    Wow! I'm impressed by Vogel in that news clip. It's almost like Steve never left. As for the Muppet Thought of the Week video, I figured that was done months ago. His voice had that rubbery quality that Jim Henson's voice had, but it sounded more high-pitched and stale.

    RIP Muppet Show Guests

    Rest in peace to Sir Bruce Forsyth. His Muppet Show episode was a favorite of mines from Season One. My condolences to his close friends and family.

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

    He did comment on the 2015 television series earlier this year when he was promoting his documentary, Muppet Guys Talking. He told Variety that he only watched the "first 15 minutes". When Steve announced he was fired, I instantly thought back to Frank's comments and he was right.

    Video: Steve Whitmire on The Today Show July 20, 2017

    Hmmm. I find it weird that on Rick Lyon's personal website, he claims Steve is "such a terrific guy". Did the two having a fall out after he wrote that or what?
