    Uk Suppliers?

    Yeah, it isn't easy to find the stuff you need here in the UK!! I have never had any luck finding Antron Fleece but have found Foam Board in several places. You can get small A4 sheets from Office World, or larger sheets from Hobby Craft. It is also sometimes found with artists supplies...

    Hi Guys! Yes, especially for all of you that missed it - here are some pictures I grabbed from Kermit's Appearance on 'Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway'. Be warned though - it is hosted by GeoCities, so it means I have limited bandwidth -...

    Suprise Live Kermit Appearance on UK TV

    I thought it was great - and a total surprise! And what else was great? The huge reaction Kermit got from the audience when revealed - I can't think of many other 'childrens' characters that would get such a reaction! Shows there is still a lot of love for the muppets! Guy!

    Interesting response from HMV re. Fraggle Rock

    Hi everyone - haven't been logged into the board for absolutely *ages*, although I have been lurking and reading! Here in the UK we got a video box set of The Muppet Show and then more recently the same thing on DVD - as an HMV exclusive product (do you have hmv in the us?). Anyway, I...

    Ron Lucas ventriloquist

    Yeah - I use to love Ron Lucas when he was on UK TV. I seem to remember a show called something like 'The Hippodrome Show' which was a sort of variety show with special guests etc. It was really good. I'd like to see some of his work again...

    Muppets from Space Cameos

    Now that's a cool site - I think I had spotted most of the ones metioned there - still fun to see though. Just one thing - was Kathy Mullen working for Henson at the time of the Muppet Movie. In one of the fairground scenes - there is a woman carrying a chicken and I always thought it looked...

    Greek Myths on UKTV this week

    Warrick, Monday's was Daedalus and Icarus - starring Derek Jacobi as Daedalus, which was pretty good. Not much in the way of creature shop stuff either but a good show. The last two should be pretty good - 'Theseus and the Minotaur' and 'Perseus and the Gorgon' which feature creature shop...

    The Muppet Show Commercials

    I am pretty sure that I read somewhere (probably Of Muppets and Men) that Jim and Frank used to record these promos in spare minutes during filming - completely improvised and unrehearsed and were often some of the funniest moments they recorded together. Hey, these would make a great extra...

    Hi Guys! Following on from another recent thread about buying the DVDs they arrived during last week and having only watched one (A Story Short) I have come to a brief conclusion.... BRILLIANT Warrick said I would love them and I do! Just thought I would share that thought with my...

    Is MUPPET an insult in the US?

    Hmmm, very interesting! Yes, I think I might have been going a bit far - its not a serious insult here, but is used when someone has done something stupid. I can't imagine it being used during a pub fight!!!! Guy!

    Is MUPPET an insult in the US?

    Hi Guys! I was just wondering, because here in the UK MUPPET is used as an insult if someone does something stupid or thick as in 'You are such a muppet!' Just wondered if this happened across the pond as well!? Cheers, Guy!
