    Favorite Jerry Nelson Character

    This is a really tough, tough question. I'd say it's a three way tie between Gobo, Robin, and Floyd. But that's hardly a good answer. His announcing voice is really awesome too. He's like the fourth main character of the Veterinarian's Hospital sketches or the reason you can walk into a room of...

    Remembering Jerry Nelson (July 10, 1934-August 23, 2012)

    It's been far too long since I last posted here, but this news really rattled me. It wasn't altogether unexpected news; after all, our time on this Earth is brief, but it was just such a gut-punch to hear. His characters were such a pivotal part of my childhood and beyond and I would have...

    "Ragtime Queen" appreciation thread

    I do like that song, quite a lot. It's my favorite Mokey song, for sure. I think most of my favorites from Fraggle Rock were the peppy, up-tempo songs, but I really like the way Ragtime Queen flows. It's one I have found myself humming more than once.

    Favorite Movies No one Knows

    I remember that one! I have it on DVD.

    Who's going to see Disney's the Princess and the Frog

    It's actually Louis (Like Louis Armstrong). I liked that character alot. I found his character design to be very appealing. I got a Louis plush and Naveen plush and Ray plush from the Disney Store.

    Favorite Movies No one Knows

    I always loved Don Bluth's films, especially the ones from the 80s. Rock-A-Doodle was a film that I never had on video, but I watched it all the time. Actually, I think it was the only movie we ever rented when I was a kid. I do have it on DVD. It's not one of Don Bluth's best, but it has a...

    Was this really news? Fox News attacks Mr. Rogers

    There are some shows on Fox News that aren't completely focused to a conservative audience, but Fox News does have a conservative spin overall. When they say fair and balanced, I have no idea what they mean other than "We're fair and balanced... in a one sided way." Most other news channels do...

    2009 Animated Films

    I have to agree with you. I read the book as a child and where it came from wasn't an issue. Everyone just accepted it. And the book just didn't have enough content to merit a feature length film. It might have made a nice 30 minute short film, but honestly, can't anything just be left to being...

    Has Disney Redeemed Themselves?

    I am a lifelong Disney fan. I've always loved Disney. However, it is a big company and it would be impossible for me to agree with everything they are doing. I think they are on the right track. I think it's sad to say, but if I were growing up today, I don't know if I would be such a big...

    Top Annoying Misnaming People Do

    I had that problem for the longest time. The worst thing was, I couldn't remember which one was Statler and which was Waldorf. Of course I do now, but I have always been bad with names and faces. Even if those faces happen to belong to a Muppet.

    New Fraggle Dolls

    Uh. They look old and wrinkly. They all seem to have an expression of grief and panic. It's quite sad, really. And Boober seems to have too much face and not enough hair.

    TV Alert: Letters to Santa reairs December 4 and 19

    I watched it. I still enjoyed it, but I think that this year, I can better outweigh its pros and cons. Pros: - The performances were great all around. Even with the weak writing, the characters shined through. - The music was enjoyable. My Best Christmas Yet and Delivering Christmas put a...

    Your Thoughts: Kermit at the Macy's Parade

    I'll take a Muppet appearance when I can get one, but this version of "I Believe" was just too pop-py for my tastes. I liked last year's version better. It just seemed more magical.

    New Video: Muppet Bohemian Rhapsody!

    I thought that was handled in a funny way. I was wondering how they were going to pull those lyrics off in a Disney friendly way. I do see your point though that it might have just been to much screen time. But I think that has to be my single favorite Animal moment in recent history.

    New Video: Muppet Bohemian Rhapsody!

    That was totally and completely awesome. I can't remember the last time I was in stitches from beginning to end of a five minute sketch! Animal cracked me up, and so did Kermit and Scooter's appearance in the end. I figured that Kermit would show up at some point, but I was a little worried...

    Graphic Novels

    I love The Dreamland Chronicles! It's a fantastic Web-comic. I love kid friendly comics I love all kinds of comics and graphic novels. Most of my physical collection consists of manga, but there are also long format, graphic-novel styled Web-comics that are free to read. One of my favorite...

    Who's going to see Disney's the Princess and the Frog

    Disney just doesn't seem to do well with the high fantasy (Dungeons and Dragons type fantasy) or science fiction genres. It's a crying shame too, I think. Because films like Atlantis and Treasure Planet (I enjoyed both of them) didn't do well, that's probably not a genre we'll be likely to see...

    What scene would you want to be in most?

    I agree! Never has a run down hotel seemed so inviting. I guess this is a strange one, but I think it would be fun to hang out in the balcony with Statler and Waldorf... Or even Floyd and Janice in the Danny Kaye episode. Also, I think it would have been nice to be in the park watching the...

    Where the Wild Things Are - Movie

    I haven't seen Where the Wild Things Are yet. But from what I understand, it sounds like a more melancholy film than one would expect from a "kid's film". I really can't say if I approve or disprove of the film since I haven't seen it, but I do think that's an interesting concept. It seems to me...
