    I’m very very excited for this! It sounds like it’s gonna be a blast and it’s awesome to see the band get the spotlight.

    10 Years of The Muppets (2011)

    I actually watched it again recently (realizing partway through the movie “holy crap, this is ten years old this year!” lol) It’s not my favorite Muppet movie, but it’s really great. I can definitely see it being a little too “safe” but at the same time, I feel like that’s what we needed to get...

    Muppets Christmas Caroling Coach at Disneyland

    Neat! So I guess this is park performers just performing to prerecorded dialogue.

    If the order was reversed...

    Muppet Treasure Island gets hate now? It’s still by far my favorite Muppet movie lol. Perfect just the way it is

    Your Thoughts: Muppets Haunted Mansion on Disney+

    Not trying to be a downer (again lol) but that was probably a bootleg unfortunately. I really don’t see any Disney+-exclusive material getting a physical release (Disney wants that sweet perpetual streaming money rather than a single flat payment for discs).

    Your Thoughts: Muppets Haunted Mansion on Disney+

    I definitely don’t want to be a downer, but I wouldn’t count on this getting any kind of physical release unfortunately.

    Your Thoughts: Muppets Haunted Mansion on Disney+

    I liked it! It was definitely better than Muppets Now, but I’d still rank the 2011 movie, Most Wanted, and (especially) the 2015 show above it. As a ‘90s fan, I was definitely missing the Rizzo and Gonzo pair. I know there’s nothing that can really be done about it outside of recasting Rizzo...

    Video: Muppets Haunted Mansion Trailer

    It actually looks pretty good! Better than what I was expecting. Honestly, seeing Johnny and Sal made me so hyped (and Van Neuter!)

    It seems that Frank Oz has been kicked out of the modern day Muppet projects…

    I always take articles like this with a grain of salt because who knows what’s actually true or not. Not that I would expect Frank to lie, but you never know. That said, if *I* were in charge, I’d be begging for Frank Oz’s input on anything Muppet-related lol.

    Did Bill have something to do with any of that?

    "Major and important" Muppet announcement coming soon

    This is what I’m most curious about too! Like I wonder if they had to go through any hoops with celebrity likenesses or music rights or anything.

    "Major and important" Muppet announcement coming soon

    I’ll be darned. I truly thought the big announcement was going to be something uneventful but this.. this is awesome!

    "Major and important" Muppet announcement coming soon

    My money is on “sEaSoN tWo Of MuPpEtS nOw”. Which, I should be glad for any new Muppet stuff... but I honestly didn’t love Muppets Now. Bring back the 2015 show!

    Muppets Now Episode 6 - Socialized

    Finally watched through the last couple episodes. I’m really not sure what to think of this show. It’s not bad.. but it’s not great. I feel like it’s sort of trying to be a variety show.. but without much variety. I think it could benefit from more and shorter skits per episode. And for goodness...

    Muppets Now Episode 4 - Sleep Mode

    Not bad but not great. The highlight for me was probably seeing the Electric Mayhem! I wish the show had more variety though. Do we need a Chef sketch EVERY episode? And I’m so tired of the Miss Piggy sketches (it doesn’t help that she was never one of my favorite characters lol). Some musical...

    Waldorf sounded like Dave to me.

    Disney CEO Scrapping Businesses Due to COVID-19

    How is this related to the Muppets? Other than “it might affect them!” ?

    Muppets Now Episode 3 - Getting Testy

    You brought up a lot of good points in this post, but I really wanted to focus on that quote about Star Wars that you posted. I’m a lifelong fan of Star Wars and I really hate seeing all the extreme hate that the newer movies get. They’re not even bad, but that quote absolutely nailed it...

    Muppets Now Episode 2 - Fever Pitch

    This one was so so so much better than the first episode! Pepe’s game show was hilarious, it was great to see Bunsen and Beaker, the Swedish Chef segment was much better, as was Piggy’s. The guests didn’t feel as “intrusive” to me in this episode. Is this the show that they said was all improv...
