    Big Bird on Soul Man (1998)

    Found this Big Bird appearance recently! Soul Man was a sitcom in the late 90s (not to be confused with the sitcom The Soul Man from the late 2000s ;)), about a widowed Episcopal minister and his family. In the episode "The Stan Plan," Father Mike (Dan Aykroyd) and his old army buddy (John...

    Gordon and Elmo at Comic Con

    I apologize if this was already posted: Elmo and Gordon to Appear at New York Comic Con http://www.toughpigs.com/elmo-and-gordon-to-appear-at-new-york-comic-con/ I find it somewhat bizarre that Gordon is being called Elmo's "dynamic counterpart." Not sure what show they're talking about, but...

    Obsessing Over Canon

    I know we often talk about how, um, loose Muppet canon can be, lol. But I was wondering just in general, for any franchise, should fans be so concerned about the canon of story lines, etc., or can we get too bogged down in these things and lose the big picture? For instance I was recently...

    The Amnesia Cliche - Good or Bad?

    I've seen this question posted on other entertainment forums and was wondering what reactions it would get here. Obviously we're all familiar with the dreaded "Amnesia Plotline," most often seen in Soap Operas or situation comedies (and Muppets Take Manhattan of course!). It's been utilized so...

    Redeeming Villains in Stories - Right or Wrong?

    I've been reading a lot on this topic lately and wanted to see if anyone had any opinions. In fictional storytelling, you often see the plot device of a villain being redeemed in the end, in other words learning his/her lesson and becoming a good guy. Darth Vader is probably one of the most well...

    Cookie Monster's Favorite Artist's 172 Birthday!

    I happened to notice today that it's artist Paul Cezanne's 172 birthday. Why do we care about this? Well because fans of the Sesame Street special Don't Eat the Pictures (aka the one where they visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art), might recall the scene where Cookie Monster and Bob are...

    I Lov the 1930's MC Thread

    Well, since the other '30s thread seems to be preoccupied with the 1830s, I guess there should be one for the 1930s. Let me know if it's superfluous. ;) Well obviously the 1930s will most be remembered for the Great Depression. But what I admire most about the time is how the economic...

    Muppets Take Manhattan Movie Storybook - Kermit and Piggy's Lost Wedding!

    I don't know if this is common knowledge or not, but I recently got to buy the 1984 Movie Storybook of Muppets Take Manhattan (from Amazon.com). It's really gorgeous, a lot of dialogue and actual screen shots from the movie. However, what thrilled and amazed me most was the ending. Kermit and...

    Retro Commercials--What's the Attraction?

    I've just been noticing lately, there's big a huge and sudden interest in retro commercials. Even though we despised them at the time for interrupting our shows and talking about nonesense, years and years later, we are desperate to find them again, hehe! Any thought as to why this is? :search:

    Beaker's Appearance in Wired!

    John Lennon 1940-1980

    Just wanted to mention that today is the anniversary of ex-Beatle John Lennon's tragic death. As a Beatles fan, what I always admired about John was the power he had with his voice and with words. No matter what he was singing about, whether it was a simple love song, a protest number, or...

    Museum of Telly and Radio

    I went to the Museum of Television and Radio in Manhattan yesterday and found the old Christmas Eve on Sesame Street special (the one where Big Bird wants to know how Santa Claus gets down the chimeny). It's classic! And I actually understand it a lot better than I did at the time. I really...
