They made Goofer out to be some major character and he had almost no screen time.

Without the background story of the Happy Time Gang and some juxtaposition of how they were to how they are the movie just doesnt make a whole lot of sense.

To quote Muppet podcaster, JD Hansel: "I don't know why Goofer didn't get more screen time. He was in all the trailers and he was on screen for like a minute. Drew Massey did a great job, I don't get it."

Hi CBP -- Did you see Happytime's "True Hollywood Story" short on YouTube? I've always wondered whether a big chunk of that short was supposed to be in the movie itself.
I have but I don't think it really explained why the show got cancelled in the 1st place

Actually just rewatched it on 123Movies


I really like the film

The puppetry is unbelievable- how Phil manages to blow smoke amazes me.


Mellissa was extremely funny

Kevin, Drew, Victor and Dorien are all fantastic with their characters. Larry is a really likeable character (when I originally thought he was the murderer) Victor did a great job with him. So good to see Kevin puppeteering again he was a great Lyle and Mr Bumblypants

But bill was MVP HE WAS FLIPPING BRILLIANT

I did feel Joel Mchale and Elizabeth Banks were underused. And I thought Maya did a fantastic job as bubbles


Good thing is that the rotten cotten girls didn't have a role. Their only lines were the ones seen in the trailer.


Overall fantastic film
I enjoyed it too granted I did find some parts a bit gross but it wasn't enough to ruin the whole experience I can't tell you how happy I was to see Kevin puppeteering again I really thought that his career was ruined by those allegations

The movie had a ton of potential, but was ruined by the studio. I'd like to see a directors cut with much of the original story intact, but we didnt get that.

It took so long to make and paled in comparison to the hype. Plus it came out in a time when it's core audience doesn't find this kind of thing funny.
