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

    It would have been wonderful if he could have made one last Christmas, let alone one last birthday, as they were both around the corner. So very sad that anyone should have to die around this time of year. By the way, I made special mention of Caroll in this thread...

    RIP the next TMS guest. Carroll Spinney has passed away. He guest starred as Big Bird in the Leslie Uggams episode. :wisdom::cry::grouchy::cry:

    RIP TMS guests

    Technically there are plenty of cameo guest stars as well as main guests on Muppets Tonight and the list of those gone also includes "Mr. Spock" Leonard Nimoy from Star Trek, who appeared briefly in the Garth Brooks episode. Having said that the RIP list for Muppets Tonight is certainly still...

    TMS outline - Michael Palin!

    I've finally read this. Very humourous and worthy of Muppet legacy. The best parts include the Cold Opening, Muppet Newsflash and the Closing Duet/Duel with Michael and Gonzo.

    https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Muppet_Show_guest_stars_who_are_living There are only 12 guests living from Season One alone.

    Valerie put up a good fight against her cancer, but inevitably it beat her eventually. RIP :cry:

    My Muppet Comparison Project

    My first installment is now ready. The Muppet Show with Ruth Buzzi and Muppets Tonight with Michelle Pfeiffer. It really doesn't matter what order you watch The Muppet Show in. Throughout all its five season run there is virtually no real continuity. The episodes are stand alone or at the most...

    Sorry to hear Mr. Redbone passed away. :cry:

    My Muppet Comparison Project

    This is something I've posted on Facebook and I thought I'd share it here. It may generate some interesting discussion. :) Who hasn't heard of The Muppet Show? Even if you've never seen an episode, you've probably heard something about this television puppetry series. It was around...

    https://variety.com/2019/film/news/peter-mayhew-dead-dies-chewbecca-star-wars-1203203816/ The Muppet Wiki will have to add his name to the tombstones. Peter played Chewie most memorably in the "Star Wars" TMS episode. His loss is a huge loss indeed to Star Wars and Muppet devotees. :'(

    RIP TMS guests

    If my calculations are correct, the three Mummenschanz, Roy Rogers/Dale Evans, Kris Kristofferson/Rita Coolidge, Shields and Yarnell and the Stars of Star Wars make 127 guest stars. Carroll Spinney as Big Bird in Leslie Uggam's episode also counts as a guest on Muppet Wiki since he played no...

    I definitely see the update via my computer now.

    True MikaelaMuppet. Usually they're quick and on the ball. Which is the main reason why I was unsure about this announcement.

    RIP TMS guests

    http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Muppet_Show_guest_stars_who_have_died It's official. She's just been added to the category of deceased TMS Guests. If she had lived three more years she would have been added to the category of Guests who reached the age of 100.

    RIP TMS guests

    Wikipedia agrees with her passing although no mention is made on the page at Muppet Wiki of Guests who have died. A Dead or Alive website says she's still alive too. On the other hand the article CBPuppets links looks serious and trustworthy. Until any new evidence comes to light confirming...

    TMS Script - Leon Redbone!

    I remember reading this a long time ago, but I never commented. I love it though. Favourite parts are the pigs turning into babies in Pigs In Space and the running gag with the Swedish Chef duelling an octopus.

    Muppets Tonight: What went wrong

    I think it had potential for sure. In my opinion the 13 episodes in which Statler and Waldorf are depicted as watching the show from an old folks retirement home and making sardonic jokes about how bad it all is, feel very much like a contemporary variation of The Muppet Show. But with the...

    Queen Rosie of France (Remake of The Alligator King)

    I thought some of these actresses may be good suggestions. https://www.imdb.com/list/ls027976010/

    "The Happytime Murders" premieres August 24, 2018
