I could see her making an appearance at the red carpet somehow and maybe in the lobby. Eric just has to do what I do with Muley and tell the photographers "Shoot HIM from the waist up, or you'll lose the magic," and normally they will. In the meantime, I normally stand behind him and look away, so it seems that, instead of being his puppeteer, I'm like a weak-looking body guard or something.

After all, on name tags it always reads:
Muley, A Mule (or Talking Mule)
Kevin, Muley's Person (or Personal Assistant)

see ya
I know this was 23 days ago but...NO DUHHHHH. I'm on the mailing list too, that's why I said "let's try to break the record and make it to 200."

And that is all I wanted to say. :smile:

I'm feeling WAY relieved now!!

We have TONS of new Muppet Merchandise coming out soon, and that's a very good thing. I just hope JHC will be more about quality control than quantity control and won't just start putting out junk in the merchandise field.

Project wise, I hope they start doing something soon because the Henson Five will have to prove to so many out there that they CAN do it.

Well at that point, it was not fully realized that the Muppets were deteriorating. The Muppets were at a crossroads at that point as well, I'd just never thought the Hensons would sell out, especially to a German company.

I was EXTREMELY EXCITED that day when this news broke!!!!!
Tears of JOY!!! :cry: :smile: :eek:
May the Henson's continue the Joy and Excitement we all have loved for years!

My wish would be for the Henson's to bring back new episodes of "Bear In The Big Blue House" and bring back all the merchandise too!

I don't know what for the future holds for Henson, and I wasn't completely supportive of this buyout, but when I go to ToughPigs and see all that merchandise and DVDs, I'm VERY impressed and think it's a great start. I probably won't even BUY any of it, but hopefully eventually I'll get my hands on the DVDs coming on 8/26.
