    Johnny Fiama & Sal The Monkey Appreciation Thread

    I haven't come close to seeing all of Muppets Tonight, but I like the idea of a lounge singer Sinatra Muppet, ha ha. One thing I do remember that made me laugh was in the Muppet Christmas Movie that aired on NBC. They had all the Muppets exchanging gifts and all of them were in a "Gift of the...

    Your Thoughts: "The Muppets" Theatrical Film

    One thing I do have to comment on about this movie is how much it hit home with me personally. Earlier this year, I lost my brother Andy. He was older than me, but had Downs Syndrome and some form of dwarfism. However, he was the nicest & most kind hearted person I've ever known and everyone...

    Your Thoughts: "The Muppets" Theatrical Film

    In a post 9/11 World, I am stunned that a character that is a dark skinned bearded man that indiscriminately blows things up would be very PC, but in the last few years, I've seen more of Crazy Harry than I have since he was phased out of the original Muppet Show.

    Your Thoughts: "The Muppets" Theatrical Film

    For those complaining that Gonzo didn't get enough screen time, I'll defend the amount of time he did get for this reason. Throughout the 90s, Gonzo had basically become the lead Muppet. With the unfortunate passing of Jim Henson, and reduced time for Frank Oz, Dave Goelz' Gonzo was basically...

    Your Thoughts: "The Muppets" Theatrical Film

    The thing about Uncle Deadly is that he was so underutilized that the only ones that seem to remember him are us die hards. So I think they just approached him in this movie as if he were a new character and see if anyone outside of the truly obsessed Muppet fans would like him. Overall...

    Your Thoughts: "The Muppets" Theatrical Film

    I saw the movie this evening and I thought it was great! In a strange way, seeing all my favorite Muppets again with their zany antics, their meta humor, their absurdity, their lighthearted simplicity, & their heartfelt messages was really a breath of fresh air. In a world dominated by CGI...

    Top 20 Favorite Muppets!

    With the new Muppet Movie on its way next week and all the hype surrounding it, I thought it'd be great to go ahead and list my all time personal favorite Muppets and I encourage others to do the same. For my list, I am sticking only with Muppets that are generally associated with The Muppet...

    What's the most FUN episode of The Muppet Show?

    My all time favorite episode is the Loretta Switt episode because Kermit goes CRAZY and fires Piggy. Its hilarious.

    The most tear-jerking Muppet moment...

    The obvious one for me is Jim Henson's tribute special at the very end when The Muppets sing "Just One Person" and then Kermit walks in mid song. I get a tear in my eye every time. One that always got to me was in the episode of The Muppet Show where Gonzo was leaving to go to Bombay India and...

    Bein Green vs. Rainbow Connection

    Its all about Rainbow Connection for me. I'll be honest, Bein' Green was never one of my favorites. The only time it ever hit me deep was during Jim Henson's memorial when Big Bird sang it (even though he's Rainbow Connection is just a more powerful song to me and truly...

    The 10 Worst Muppets?

    Wow, that list is mean. He disses Janice, Scooter, Bunsen Honeydew, AND Bobo, who has become one of my favorite newer additions to the Muppets. I actually had a hard time myself coming up with 10 Muppets that I don't like at least a little bit. But here are my answers: First of all, I have...

    Top Ten "Lesser' Muppets

    For those of you upset that Big Bird becoming a "Lesser Muppet" do you think it might be because the guy playing him is in his 70s? I saw an interview with Caroll Spinney on Youtube. Neat dude, but they said he was in his 70s. Spending 40 years inside a costume where you have to walk around...

    Your Thoughts: Muppets Letters to Santa

    Now I didn't see the last Christmas Special they did, but didn't people complain about that one being too adult? I heard Pepe used the word "Sexy" (which in the Muppet World might as well be a big old F-Bomb) and there was a scene of the Muppets in a raunchy dance club or something. I also...

    Top Ten "Lesser' Muppets

    Interesting, but I never knew there was a distinction between Muppets & Creatures. Chalk that up to being uninformed on my part, but I just always called anything that came out of Jim Henson's body of work a Muppet. I never really seperated them. Anyways, very happy Muppet fan tonight...

    Your Thoughts: Muppets Letters to Santa

    I enjoyed it. It was cute. It was certainly better than Muppets from Space & Wizard of Oz. - I liked how they made an effort to incorporate alot of the older Muppets who haven't had a chance to shine in a long time. Rowlf, Scooter, Dr. Teeth, Janice, & one of my all time favorites CRAZY...

    It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Appreciation Thread!

    I've never seen this Christmas special or The Muppets Wizerd of Oz (which I've been told to avoid like the plague) I've heard mized things about this special. Can anybody go into great detail for me in what was wrong or right with it?

    Top Ten "Lesser' Muppets

    This is my first post here, so be kind! Anyways, we all know who the big Muppet stars are. Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, & Gonzo, with various others like Rowlf, Scooter, Rizzo, The Electric Mayhem & more recently Pepe acting as the sidekicks to the main crew. And then you have characters like...
