Hey Guys,
It was great !

There was some scenes from The Muppet Show and then some from The Muppet Movie.

They also showed the Screen Test with Kermit and Piggy, Kermit and Fozzie with the cows and then Kermit and Sweetums !
Sweetums sounded weird, Kindalike Dave or Steve was performing him !

There was new footage of Kermit and Piggy being interviewed.
It WAS Eric Jacobson !

It looked like a newer Miss Piggy puppet, And it looked like they are making her more full in the face.
Kinda like The Muppet Show days she looked great !!
But her body did move with her head.
The Puppet actually looks very beautiful.

The whole thing was about two and a half minutes long, So it was worth seeing !
I taped it.

See ya

Very cool. I wonder who will perform Piggy in the new show. I don't much like Eric's Piggy because she sounds too manly, but maybe it will improve in time.

What is this now?

What screen test and interview are you talking about?

Any way to make it available online, like at the main MC site?

I just got the Muppet Movie on DVD and saw the screen test. It's hilarious!!! It's amazing that it was mostly ad-libbed, as it's one of the funniest Muppet things I've seen. I especially like Kermit and Fozzie telling eachother that they aren't real, or at least that they aren't real "animals". "Fozzie, have you ever seen a real bear with a magenta nose?" -Kermit.

Those screentests are very funny. I'd like to see a compilation of just the outakes! Have you seen any of the credit sequences from Muppets Tonight? Some great stuff too!
