Hello fellow Muppet fans. I’ve known of Muppet Central for quite a while but I’ve finally decided to get an account. My Muppet interests mostly centers on the Muppet Show, Muppets Tonight, and Jim Henson Hour, though I am familiar with Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock.

I watched Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock a lot when I was a little kid, but it took me a while until I got into the Muppet Show.

I had vague memories of the Muppets until kindergarten. Like i think I remember seeing the In the Navy sketch on the Muppet Show when it was still being shown on Disney Channel, and maybe parts of Muppet Treasure Island when my older brother Josh had it on VHS, but after that, I didn’t really see anything Muppet-related.

Then, for a while after kindergarten…I was actually scared of the Muppets! It started when my grandmother got the season 1 DVD set for the Muppet Show when I was 6 years old, which as we all know, most of the characters looked kind of weird back then, especially the monsters. Apparently, something from the show scared me away from the Muppets, but I can’t remember if it was Mahna Mahna, Animal, or the Muppet monsters.
It apparently scared me so badly back then, that I ran down to the basement screaming. (at least that's what my other brother Jakob told me)

For a while, the only things produced by Jim Henson that I was cool with watching was Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock, but NEVER the Muppet show or any of the Muppet movies

Then, in 6th grade, my chorus teacher decided to let us watch a movie because we had just performed for a school holiday concert and we deserved a break, which delighted us. The movie ended up being The Muppet Christmas Carol. I was really scared but I didn’t say anything because I thought people would laugh at me. When it came to the part where Jacob Marley (Statler)’s head had morphed from the door knocker and did that yell, I actually did shriek, but for some reason, I didn’t run out of the room.

Then, when Animal’s part when he walked on-screen to yell everyone to be quiet, I got scared again, not sure what he would do since I’ve never seen this film. When he said his line, “QUIET!!!!” I didn’t scream or anything, but I didn’t laugh either I just stayed quiet and watched on.

Then, in my 6th grade English class, our teacher was having us read the Christmas Carol and guess what movie we watched? Yep, he wanted us to compare the actual book to the Muppet adaptation of it. When Statler’s part came up again, I braced myself for it, but this time…I didn’t freak out, in fact, as I watched the rest of the movie, I actually began to enjoy it because i realized the Muppets weren’t as scary as I past believed.

Then, began my whirlwind Muppet craze!!! After watching the movie, I was hooked on Muppets, so hooked that I wanted to see all the other movies and shows they made. First, I found an old VHS tape for Muppets from Space (we had a VHS player back then, but we’ve since upgraded to Blu-Ray), where I saw the movie, and also the trailers for all the past Muppet films. I was really intrigued by the Great Muppet Caper one the most (which became my favorite Muppet film after watching it!).

Then, i started getting all the Muppet films on DVD from my grandfather, including Muppets from Space, then the three Muppet Show seasons DVD packs (I got Season 2 first from a Best Buy. The other two I didn’t get until Easter), and when we got internet and i got a laptop, I found the Muppet wiki and found out about Muppets Tonight and Jim Henson Hour, not to mention a lot of Muppet fanart and fanfiction on fanfiction and fanart sites and I met my first online Muppet friends.

My favorite Muppet Memories are seeing The Muppets in theaters when it premiered, along with my mom and stepdad, seeing In the Navy in the Muppet Show when I was really little, and the Wedding Scene in Muppets Take Manhattan from one time my brother Josh had it on DVD.


My favorite Muppet characters are Zoot, Lips, Janice, Animal and Clifford.


My favorite Muppet movies are Great Muppet Caper, Muppets take Manhattan and Muppets from Space.


My favorite episodes of the Muppet Show are the ones with: Paul Williams, Elton John, Liza Minelli, Dudley Moore, Peter Ustinov, Hal Linden, Kaye Ballard, Cleo Laine, Linda Lavin, Helen Reddy, Harry Belafonte, the Cast of Star Wars, Dizzy Gillepsie, Brooke Shields, Paul Simon, and Melissa Manchester.


My favorite Muppets Tonight episodes are the ones with Prince, Sandra Bullock, and the Cameo show.


My favorite episodes of Jim Henson Hour are Power, Videotape, Secrets of the Muppets and Food.


I look forward to getting to know all the other Muppet fans on this site and I hope to contribute to it a lot.

Uh, no. That came up about a year ago and it's complete nonsense. And also ToughPigs would've said something about it if it were a thing. No. Just no. Though I wish it were true.
Yeah it didn’t seem very believable. It looked like a 6 year old wrote the script. Hopefully they make a new muppet movie sometime though. :smile:

Hello everyone~! I'm Brigid (also known as Medic or Scuber, if you've already met me over the Discord :smile:) And I'm a long-time fan from Canada. It's great to have the forum working now!

I grew up with a love of the Muppets, particularly Muppets Tonight and Sesame Street and I'm very happy to have a place to discuss these interests now! There's a comforting charm to puppets and practical effects that has followed me throughout my life.

Other interests of mine are needlework (knitting and crochet), science fiction (Star Trek and Red Dwarf to name a few), new wave music, superhero movies, and video games (Overwatch and Team Fortress 2) :super:

It's great to finally introduce myself to the forum, and I hope to be more active in discussion. <3 :sympathy:
