"Sesame Street for Babies"
Big Bird and Cookie Monster have been the same age for 36 years, but a new series of Sesame Street DVDs takes a look at their baby backstories. "Sesame Beginnings" hits stores in March and...
Because I didn't preorder the Season 1 set anyplace, I'm looking around for the best brick & mortar deal, and it looks like it's at Best Buy. The Season 1 set itself is $29.99, which is as low as any other (advertised) price; but if you buy Wizard of Oz with Season 1, you get ten...

Muppets: Little. Furry. Prone to blowing things up and spewing out mile-a-minute puns. Everyone loves the Muppets, and...
Do I have qualms about Muppets playing Nazi? Well, sure I do. But Beaker's an idiot. So there it is. And there HE is, as Dietrich, the Nazi Commander from Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Okay, several people called this one...and he just makes sense. I couldn't decide between the various ways we see Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark, so I tried to do a two-in-one kind of thing.
Before Palisades had even announced their Adventure Kermit figure, I had made an Indiana Jones custom of Kermit, using the Koozebane Kermit as a base figure. After I showed it, and people liked it, Ken e-mailed me encouraging me to do some more "Indy" customs, never telling me that they'd go...
Okay, everyone saw this one coming…how could I venture into the world of Muppet Treasure Island without bringing along my beautiful porky piglet, Benjamina Gunn?
This one is bound to cause controversy somewhere, but I had to do it. I need my bad guys to outnumber my good guys...and of all the Muppet second-stringers, Crazy Harry makes the BEST pirate... :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:
For today, another pirate...this one with four arms ready to engage Gonzo in a starfish-throwing contest. Heez name? Jacques Roach.
This is one of the few attempts I've made at making a figure completely from scratch, and like my other attempts, he's not entirely successful. Walleye Pike is a talking fish pirate, seen in the roll call, "Cabin Fever," and various other places in "Muppet Treasure Island"...one of his more...
Okay, tackling a set of more obscure characters today, and a totally new method of sculpting for me...we have the Treasure Island Pig Idols from MTI. Stone statues that are seen both near the beaches of the island and ringing the clearing where Smollet, Gonzo, and Rizzo are nearly sacrificed to...
If MTI was a license all on its own, there's no doubt we would see Lew Zealand as a pirate, even though he was basically wasted in MTI. Not "wasted" like "high," but wasted in the sense that Lew is a great character, and they could have at least given him some lines...a swordfish...have HIM be...
Okay, I've been waiting for the Collectors Club sections to go up for a looong time now, and I'm done waiting. I've got about dozen things that I'm saving for the CC, just in case that ever really happens...some really cool stuff that I think you'll like.
In the meantime, there's some other...
Hey...I'm posting this here in the hopes that Byron will catch it...I suppose I could always e-mail it to him, but someone may be interested.
Anyway, I was in Claire's today looking for some nice Sesame Street stuff (didn't really find any) and they had these tins of lip gloss...they're 3-4...
