    Classic Sesame shows removed from HBO

    They weren't replaced at all, although the fan/optimist in me wants to think there could be other plans for release (but maybe not).

    Classic Sesame shows removed from HBO

    I don't know if anyone else noticed, but I was checking HBO Go and found that five of their "Sesame Street Classics" episodes are no longer listed. I don't see episodes #1576, #3136, #3171, #3502, and #3611 anywhere. I guess they took them off at the beginning of the year, and I'm not sure why...

    Sesame Street Muppets answer questions on Wired

    Yeah, to be honest, Billy's Ernie has been the hardest to stomach for me, though he has gotten better at it recently. Even if it's not as good as Jim or Steve, I can kind of accept it as it's own thing. I've always thought I could do a pretty good Henson voice, but that's not really the point...

    Sesame Street Muppets answer questions on Wired

    I love videos that let the Muppets be Muppets and ad-lib up a storm. Not to deviate too, but I can't help but note the comments on this. Half of the people are griping about the voices. It mystifies me that people are suddenly not used to Matt Vogel's Big Bird, despite the fact that he's voiced...

    Furchester Hotel Season 2

    To my knowledge, this appears to be the first time two of Matt Vogel's characters have interacted with each other. Weird to hear how different his Big Bird and Count voices are from each other.

    Sesame Street Season 47 Episode 4706 - Elmo's Sweet Ride

    I'd almost suspect this episode was held over from season 46 or something. I mean, why else would they throw in the Crumby Pictures and Two-Headed Monster skits on top of last year's Letter/Number segments? Also, Jen's Zoe voice sounded rather jarring in this, but she sounds good in the little...

    Sesame Street Season 47 Episode 4701 - Be Kind to Your Worm

    I know I've been gone for some time, but since my last post was about season 46, I wanted to talk a bit about this season. So far, I think the flow of the format in the first couple episodes is much better; and adding a closing scene, similar to the Halloween episode, helps give them a much more...

    Sesame Street Season 46 Episode 4601 - Bedtime Story

    Haven't been on here for a while, but I wanted to post a few observations about the newer shows having just watched them. First of all, I got up unusually early and was lucky enough to catch The Muppet Christmas Carol, which, no joke, was airing on HBO-HD preceding the two Sesame shows. And...

    Major Changes in store for Sesame Street Season 46

    I just hope his departure doesn't have to do with the recent move to HBO or anything of that nature. I'm pretty concerned that so many important people have recently been leaving the show at a point when it's already drastically changing. What's going on?

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt Signed On to Star in Fraggle Rock Movie

    Hmm, intriguing. He's producing it as well, so I guess that would make him the "Jason Segel" of Fraggledom. Finally this movie can get rolling, and hopefully New Regency won't turn this into another Chipmunks (god forbid).

    New Muppets Interstitial Series on Disney Junior 2015

    I'm probably thinking too hard on this, but it really kind of aggravates me that a new Muppet series hasn't gotten off the ground in over a decade, and the best that can be done is a series of shorts on a preschool network. It's hard for me to fathom why it's come to this, but if they've done...

    Muppeteer Fran Brill's official retirement

    Like I said on another thread, I'd suspect that it may just be for this season (an isolated thing like John T. performing Ernie for one season of PWMS), and considering that nothing official has been said on the level of Fran's retirement, I wouldn't jump the gun and say Steve's retired too...

    Sesame Street Season 45 Episode 4503 - Proud to Be Me

    Somehow, I thought the ETM opening was going to be re-dubbed or re-shot, but I don't blame them for not going that far. Fortunately, the transition from Kevin's Elmo to Ryan's is quite seamless now, so much so that I'd think most kids won't pick up the difference. Speaking of which, I don't...

    Sesame Street Season 45 Episode 4502 - Bert's Training Wheels

    That comment actually made me laugh. Sarcasm wins again :p Still, I wasn't trying to say anything derogatory towards the people behind the scenes. I know computer effects are just another step in the process of presenting the characters as real beings, and I don't mind it that much. I just...

    Sesame Street Season 45 Episode 4502 - Bert's Training Wheels

    I generally like when they use chromakey in doing the full-body puppetry, which is effective when it's done really well. But in this case, yeah I kind of agree with you. I personally thought the CGI park in this episode looked out of place, especially when transitioning to and from the actual...

    Sesame Street Season 45 Episode 4502 - Bert's Training Wheels

    Only got to see part of this episode a few minutes ago (since Tuesday's my busiest day of the week now). Looks like I was right in my prediction on the previous thread, and yeah, it definitely looks like Ernie's voice was dubbed after the fact. They probably intended for Steve to dub it later...

    Video: "A Note to Self" with Kermit the Frog from CBS This Morning September 12, 2014

    I'm fairly certain it was the latter. Some of the archived clips seem to be excerpts from The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years, which aired on CBS, so it would make sense.

    Sesame Street Season 45 Episode 4501 - School for Chickens

    Frank Oz hasn't filmed any new material since 2011, so I guess I can see why he's not credited this season (although they used one of his performances for this episode, so whatever). However, Ernie features in two street stories and while Whitmire isn't listed in the credits, Billy Barkhurst...

    TV Alert: Sesame Street on Good Morning America September 12, 2014

    It's Matt lipsynching to Caroll's voice, which I think he's doing while he's performing Oscar. They did the same thing on last nights Jimmy Fallon appearance, which I only saw today (didn't know anything about it last night). Anyway, this GMA appearance was probably the best (if not the most...

    Remembering Robin Williams (July 21, 1951 - August 11, 2014)

    I can't put to words how shocked I was to find out about this. I just can't believe he's dead. :sigh:
