Obviously, we've seen Muppet Show, Sesame Street, and Fraggle Rock Muppets honor Jim, particularly on the 30th anniversary special from 1986, and the 1990 special that honored him right after his passing (and the first time we got to see Steve Whitmire perform Kermit the Frog). The question I...
It's been a while since we've talked about (or heard from) the Skrumps. But I have a question I wanted to ask-- could Wishbone and Skrumpy (and maybe Raisins) ever sing covers of songs from the Electric Mayhem? I always thought Wishbone would be great at singing Can You Picture That? from The...
Seeing how we're fast approaching the 30th anniversary of Muppet Babies, and that of Skeeter, imagine if she became an adult Muppet, and in puppet form. The question is, who would perform her?
For me, I thought maybe Joey Mazzarino could do her justice... what about you guys?
Not sure if it's the right place to post this, but here it is:
(We hear the opening notes. Sid and his classmates look at a rainbow with Teacher Susie.)
Sid: Uh, Susie? Why are there colors in a rainbow?
Susie: Good question, Sid! I even know a song about rainbows! And I'll let some...
(We hear a drumroll, along with a "tick-tock" sound.)
ANNOUNCER (Marty Robinson): And now, it's time for everyone's favorite stunt show, the New Beat the Time! And here is your new host, Sonny Friendly!
(The audience cheers. Guy Smiley walks out, getting caught in the gold curtains.)
Remember back in 2008 when the Pajanimals first came onto PBS Kids Sprout as a series of musical shorts and they sang a lullaby to help kids go to sleep that now has (roughly) two million views on YouTube? Well, I noticed that they did a new version for the TV series, and I'd like to know if you...
Granted, we've seen Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock characters do that, but here's some other Henson characters I could see singing this:
1.) Sid the Science Kid and friends
2.) The Pajanimals (especially Sweetpea Sue)
3.) Bear and his friends in the Big Blue House
4.) The Skrumps
5.) Bobby and...
Here's my list:
1.) The Fraggles
2.) The Pajanimals
3.) Sid the Science Kid and friends
4.) Dinosaur Train cast
5.) Bear and his friends from the Big Blue House
6.) Puppet Up! puppets
7.) Wilson and Ditch
8.) Bobby and Samson
9.) Augie and Del
10.) Late Night Liars puppets
That's about all I...
Not sure if someone already posted a thread about it, but...
I used to watch this show quite a bit on PBS back in the late 90s. Unfortunately, this is the only clip I could find of it on YouTube (you'll have to excuse the title of the video that the user uploaded):
BTW, not all of the...
This is something I've been wanting to do for a while now:
ANNOUNCER: Stronger than a speeding bullet, furrier than a powerful locomotive, and able to leap tall sandwiches in a single bound! It's the adventures of that furry superhero, Super Grover!
(fanfare plays, Grover crashes through logo)...
...as sung by other Henson characters (i.e. Sid the Science Kid, Red Fraggle, the Disney Muppets)? What songs do you think they would sing?
Here's some ideas I had:
1.) "Sesame Street Theme" - performed by all of the Muppets
2.) "I Don't Want to Live on the Moon" - sung by the Pajanimals and...
This is what I think it would be like:
(Gobo sorts through the trash in Doc's workshop. He finally finds his Uncle Traveling Matt's letter.)
GOBO (reading): "Dear Nephew Gobo..."
(fade to Matt visiting Muppet Labs)
TRAVELING MATT: I am on my way to discover a very shiny-looking cave, and...
