    TINKERDEE: A Muppet Collective

    Some of my friends from Muppet Central Discord and I have been putting together a new online community for Muppet fans, and now we're going public! Tinkerdee has just been launched as a brand new forum, and our community is already beginning to blossom on there. If you love anything birthed...

    Muppet Family Christmas - NZ screening

    I can at least narrow down the year to 1989, based on a newspaper clipping that seems to mention Palace Video and Jim Henson in the same page. As for the specific date, the only one I've heard is from a wiki (which are hard to trust) that claims it was released on November 6 1989.

    Would the Muppets be better off owned by Warner Bros.?

    Columbia's parent company Sony has the rights to a good chunk of the Muppet movies Disney doesn't have already. I'm not sure how well they'd do in keeping the characters active, but they'd probably keep their old material accessible.

    Two Questions about the "Dialing for Prizes Movie" sketch

    The first of the photos, above the archway Guy Smiley walks through, is of W.C. Fields. Some of the others might be Jimmy Stewart, Marilyn Monroe, Helen Kane, but I don't know for sure.

    Both were Bugs Bunny TV specials, from 1988 and 1981 respectively.

    The Worst CGI Kid Films In Recent Memory

    Frankly it's about as much a real sequel as the Melendez/Mendelson-produced "Frosty Returns" was. From a purist point of view, the only true blue sequels are the ones Rankin/Bass produced themselves (most of which, incidentally, are owned by Warner Bros. instead of Dreamworks, which was part of...

    Non-Muppet MP3 Trade Page

    Oh man, this rocks! I thought it'd be impossible, considering how pricey and rare it's become. Thank you so much!

    Non-Muppet MP3 Trade Page

    Anybody got a rip of the Cattanooga Cats LP? A bit of a stretch, I'm sure, but I wouldn't know where else to look. I've seen a couple tracks scattered on YouTube, and most of the televised mono edits of these songs are there too, but I'm seeking all the full stereo tracks from this album.

    Where can I find this Muppet Babies story?

    You sure it wasn't this one, with the full grown Muppets?

    The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Thread!

    Raposo actually did some work for a Peanuts production once. When Clark Gesner's concept album "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown" was adapted into a stage musical in 1967, Raposo provided new arrangements on his songs, and instrumental underscore. Raposo's arrangements were then adapted for an...

    Lots of MUP3's, Wanna Trade?

    Anyone got an MP3 of "Don't Throw That Trash On The Ground" sung by Ernie? It baffles me that I can't find the whole thing on YouTube, cause I swear it used to be there, unless it's under a different name or something.

    Why is the Richard Scarry's Best Videos Ever series out of print?

    The simple answer is TV reached out to a wider audience. More homes were equipped with TV sets than they were with VCRs. Plus some of the market that is still buying videos have lived through a time when home video wasn't the household convenience it has become today. Before VCRs took off, the...

    Carl Reiner Dead at 98

    I was never really aware of this man's work, but I do recognize him from 2 of my favorite cartoons, "Funny Is Funny" (1966) and "The 2000 Year Old Man" (1975), both of which feature such a great, natural sincerity about them in the voice direction and humor. He's lived an illustrious life, to be...

    Rare film with Big Bird

    Within Sesame Street the only other examples I know, though they're a bit of a stretch, are the occasional live action films where Sesame Street appears on a TV set on screen, like the one about kids growing up to take on different jobs (a kid watching the Kermit and Cookie Monster weather bit...

    Sesame Street on "One World: Together at Home" Special Saturday April 18, 2020

    It was a bit of a cop-out on the Sesame side, but there were some fine performances throughout. J-Lo doing "People" was a standout for me.

    Sesame Street Special "Elmo's Playdate"

    They certainly managed to cram a lot into this half hour! A pleasant diversion, a great way to show kids that you can have just as much fun indoors over the internet as you can outside. Elmo is as engaging a host as ever, and everyone had fantastic scenes in this special, particularly the...
