    "Major and important" Muppet announcement coming soon

    Other thoughts... I wonder what order they'll go in? Most likely in production order like the box sets, but even that's imperfect, considering that Kermit says "we've got another great show for you" in the Juliet Prowse episode, making viewers feel like they've missed something. Plus, Scooter's...

    "Major and important" Muppet announcement coming soon

    Even though I'm generally a fan of physical media myself, I had given up all hope of getting Seasons 4 and 5 in any fashion. I honestly thought Disney had locked the door and thrown away the key. Now, for $7.99 a month, I can watch TMS in addition to a ton of other stuff I already watch anyway...

    Ways to Get More Muppets on Disney+

    For some reason, I didn't get an email notification about the responses, so I didn't see them until now. Thanks for your thoughts, DMH Fan and Jobi71! At any rate, we have great, unexpected news today: Disney+ will have all five seasons of TMS starting next month! :smile::smile::smile: I had no...

    New BBC article about The Muppet Christmas Carol

    Woo-hoo!! This is FANTASTIC news. I've always loved the song, and I was bummed that I could never see it in widescreen form. But that day is finally coming! :) It sounds like Brian isn't sure when the 4K transfer will be complete, so we might not get it until next Christmas, but he did...

    Ways to Get More Muppets on Disney+

    Hey, folks--Here’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while now. I’m glad that Disney+ has as much Muppet content as it does, but considering the franchise’s vast library, I do wish there was more. As far as the new content goes, I appreciated the attempt with Muppets Now, even though it...

    People who we would've loved to see on TMS

    Great idea for a thread! Considering the frequent appearances by Ray Charles with the Muppets, it's a bit surprising he didn't have his own TMS episode. Mel Brooks even appeared in TMM, but not as a guest. Robin Williams wasn't able to appear on TMS as originally planned, but his zany humor...

    Happy birthday, Phillip!

    Oops! You're right. I got a little ahead of myself. :) Well, it was an early birthday greeting, then!

    Sesame Street Documentary "Sesame Street: 50 Years and Still Sunny!"

    I missed this somehow, and it doesn't seem to be airing on PBS again anytime soon. Any word of this coming to DVD?

    Muppets Now Episode 1 - Due Date (Pilot)

    It was OK. The Chef segment kind of worked for me; I smiled a bit at Walter and Kermit; Uncle Deadly has really found his niche as a foil for Piggy; but none of it made me laugh out loud. Also, interviewing a non-flamboyantly dressed RuPaul felt like trying to be subversive and conservative at...

    "The Muppet Movie" returns to theaters July 25 and July 30 2019 for its 40th anniversary

    Thanks, Bliffenstimmers! I posted about this on FB as well, and a friend confirmed that Universal does own the theatrical distribution rights. Like you, I had known about Caper -- and The Dark Crystal, too, if memory serves -- but TMM surprised me. (There's a similar situation with The Princess...

    "The Muppet Movie" returns to theaters July 25 and July 30 2019 for its 40th anniversary

    Very cool! Thanks to Fathom Events, I've seen a number of films on the big screen that I missed the first time. I may have actually seen TMM on the big screen when I was younger but I don't remember it. This will be a wonderful thing to behold! My only question...it's being presented by...

    Your Thoughts: New Muppet Central Forum Features

    My opinion probably doesn't count for a whole lot 'cuz I'm not here very much, but I like this a lot! As nice as the old design was, the site was in need of an upgrade, and this is definitely a good step in that direction. :)

    Electric Mayhem posers at the Muppet Studios gift shop

    Cool video! Thanks for sharing. It's so odd that it was so hard to adapt the puppets into accurate costume likenesses. A two-dimensional cartoon character like Mickey Mouse could get turned into a three-dimensional costume and look great. But somehow, the Muppets (who already existed in 3...

    Wow, 20 years! Hats off to you, Phil, and to everyone who kept this site and community active for so long. MC was one of the first online communities I got involved in, and it was the absolute first community I was involved in that was dedicated to Muppet fandom. I'm sorry that I haven't been a...

    Happy Birthday Phillip!

    Hey, folks! I got a reminder that today is Phil's birthday, so I had to step in to say: Happy birthday, Phil! I hope things are going well for you and Cindy, wherever you are and whatever you're doing. I know I haven't been here in ages, but I still do think about you folks from time to time...
