    TV Alert: Grover on Good Afternoon America August 22, 2012

    The show had already been on for 35 minutes before I saw the e-mail from Muppet Central letting me know about this, so I missed the first half of the show. I did see the Grover bit at the end, which was apparently the main thing . . . and it was awfully weak. The GAA folks were trying to rush...

    Muppet Theory: Chaos vs. Order

    An editor at Slate Magazine recently published an article claiming that human beings can be divided up into two categories: Chaos Muppets (like Cookie, Animal, or Ernie) and Order Muppets (like Sam, Kermit, or Bert). All of us, she says, are basically one or the other. She gives examples using...

    Sesame Street characters discuss finance with Paul Solman

    You're not the only NewsHour junkie. I just didn't get around to posting the link before you did. Anyway, there have been more developments: Steven Colbert responded to that segment by scolding Sesame Street here...

    Dark Crystal comic FREE 7 May 2011

    This has already been discussed here: http://forum.muppetcentral.com/showthread.php?t=43351 but I figured a new thread title was necessary to ensure that people find out about this. This Saturday, 7 May 2011, is Free Comic Book Day! Local comic book stores across the U.S. will be giving...

    Muppet Magazine

    You must mean "Rarely Spotted Muppets," the small box that was one part of the "Mondo Muppet" section of the magazine. I didn't find any Matthew C-- in the issues I have from 1987 and 88, which are: 1987: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall 1988: Spring, Summer So that would narrow it down to Winter...

    Hasbro's Sesame line to be unveiled at Toy Fare

    I assume by "buddy packs" you mean the Galactic Heroes, Robot Heroes, Super-Hero Squad, Combat Heroes, etc. lines. While these do seem to be the same general concept, the Sesame figurines go much further in deforming the character designs. Those heads are enormous. I think most of those...

    Hasbro's Sesame line to be unveiled at Toy Fare

    Yes, that gallery is from a Transformers website, but the only reason it's there is because the person reporting on Hasbro's Transformers Toyfair presentation just thought it was neat that Hasbro also has the Sesame Street license. There's no other connection. And they're not what I'd call...

    Fraggle Rock comics - round 2!

    Well, despite Archaia's statement and the Diamond shipping list, my local comic shop didn't have issue #2 this morning (they did have #1 last week). I was there about 2 minutes after they opened, so I know they didn't sell out. So—? Has the issue shown up elsewhere?

    Your dream 2011 Muppet Promotions

    Muppets Invasion The other night I was being so greedy for merchandise that I forgot to add my support for what's probably the most effective idea in the thread (as far as motivating people to go see the movie): Muppets invading talk shows. Throughout the coming year (not just bunched up in...

    Your dream 2011 Muppet Promotions

    Movie Soundtrack CDs First, I like a lot of the ideas I've been reading in this thread, particularly the release of Muppet Show Season 4 (naturally) and new action figures. I loved the Palisades figures and would buy new characters in that scale, but really I'd prefer smaller figures. In any...

    Fraggle comic at FCBD in May

    If your comic shop participates in Free Comic Book Day--and lots and lots of them do--it WILL be free. Stores are not allowed to charge money for these comics on the event day. (As back issues they may eventually end up in 50-cent bins, but that's another story.) Anyone who wonders whether her...
