    I don't think it's a hot take that MCC is better than MTI.

    Shall we settle this completely? Let's poll the forum and find out what the best thing the Muppets have ever done is.

    They're both equally good Brian Henson films (though I would say I personally prefer MTI over MCC; the latter not really using the muppets all that much).

    We're still talking about it? It's been a couple of years after this show got cancelled.

    Hey. Some people around here still keep begging for Steve Whitmire to come back, or for Kevin Clash to come back, or for Jerry Nelson to stop being dead, or for Caroll Spinney to stop getting old.

    Some people just can't let go.

    I mean hey.

    I really wish Jim Henson would stop being not alive so I could hear him as Kermit again. :shifty:

    Hold on.

    Are my ears broken or is Dwayne now accepting Matt as Kermit??? :eek: :p

    Well, when it comes down to it I am a Muppet fan and not a Muppet performer fan. I want what is best for the Muppets, and if that means one of there core performers had to go then so be it. Don't get me wrong, I love the work Steve has done with the Muppets, but maybe it is time for a change.

    I also understand that once you get fired from a job, regardless of how good you were the chances of you getting that job are slim to none.

    My only hope now is that Disney will find a vision for the Muppets, and be able to use them in all there projects. I also hope they have something planned for some kind of internet presence since the Thought of the Weeks are over. It wasn't the best content but at least it was something.
