    Wow some Interesting shots in these TV Spots, in the Muppets Confusing Plot one the scene's with Beauregard, Happy Yellow Creature and Constantine, Crazy Harry with the Band. Also lots of scenes in the More Muppets Spot Look Interesting Too.

    Its almost time for us to start seeing 4 or 5 clips from the film and hearing previews of each song on the soundtrack soon! 28 more days full of anxious and excitement

    Swedish Chef wearing a black chef's hat make me think that either the Muppets are at a funeral or they are indeed at Kermit and Piggy's wedding and Piggy just forced him not to wear white

    I'm not sure what's better, seeing the Happy Yellow Creature in these commercials, or the fact that people actually recognize him. There are quite a few YouTube comments about his appearance, calling him various names because he was never given an official one.

    Although, I think I found the funniest variation on his name yet.

    Someone called him the "Happy Laser Lemon Creature" in one of the comments. :laugh:

    Also, one of the comments on that trailer also said that the Flying Zucchini Brothers are being shot out of the cannons on both sides of the screen in the first clip.

    Hmm. It certainly looks like the Flying Zucchini Brothers. But, it is hard to tell, after all, they are being shot out of cannons! I'd love to see the Flying Zucchini Brothers again, and they certainly fit the "worldwide" theme this movie is going for (with being Italian and all)

    Wait, never mind, it wasn't 1989, but I don't think it was as early as '85. In Jim Henson: The Biography it said Jim began talking about it when MFC was made in 1987.

    I haven't read through all of the biography yet. This was based on old information before the biography was released.

    First time that I saw/heard that interview- did you hear the part where Kermit says that there's a image of what an offspring of theirs could look like during Piggy's song?!! That's kind of epic..I'm literally dying to see this movie, thank god I'm seeing it in NYC in three weeks or I'll lose my mind waiting. :)

    Wow, Gloat. That's awesome.

    Also, Movie Surfers is still a thing?

    Angel Marie is in there too.

    And judging by Gloat's outfit, I suppose he's going to be a prisoner at the gulag, in addition to Calico, further fulfilling my wish to see a mix of both Muppet and human prisoners in the gulag, especially if it means bringing even more obscure characters back.

    I wonder if characters like Boppity, Lenny the Lizard, Mean Mama, Gorgon Heap, etc. will be among the gulag prisoners as well...

    I'm also going to guess that Angel Marie will be a prisoner as well.

    That would explain why we haven't seen these Muppets in a long time. They've been in prison!

    It's Gloat! And he's wearing a prisoner outfit! And he's texting! And...Gloat!

    Yeah, Angel Marie is there too but...Gloat!

    It seems with every little clip they release I get even more excited for the movie. Just 29 days! 696 hours! 41,760 minutes! 2,505,600 seconds!

    SO MANY OBSCURE CHARACTERS!!!

    I'm starting to wonder if the reason why certain characters got excluded from The Muppets Character Encyclopedia is because the ones that were left out or went unmentioned are ones that we probably won't see in the movie.

    I'm not too sure about that. Spamela, Droop, and Captain Pighead are shown in the wedding scene, and they weren't in the character encyclopedia. Also, 80's Robot, who we know has at least a small presence in a few scenes, wasn't in the encyclopedia.
