He was just saying they weren't THE Muppets, the classic muppets that everyone thinks of when they hear the word "muppets".That still makes them Muppets irregardless if they can be legally refered to by that term or not.
That's it! Thank you, Ploobis! By the way, you've officially got my favorite name on the Muppet Central boards! Awesome choice!I loved the performance!
I think the futuristic looking puppets were originally created for the "City Kids" series. It was great seeing Piddles too.
I agree. I don't care if it's 1975 or 2075, non creature shop puppets from the Jim Henson Company will always be "Muppets" to most of us. I mean shoot, they use quite a number of Muppet puppets for Stuffed and Unstrung and the former Puppet Up.That still makes them Muppets irregardless if they can be legally refered to by that term or not.
But nonetheless, that was a pretty cool thing to watch, I'm not usually one to sit through award shows in their entirety, but seeing this was worth the watch, lol. I knew I saw Piddles the Pug in there amongst all the mayhem, lol.
Preach it!Since we're arguing semantics, it should be made clear that the use of the word Muppet here is correct. Saying the Muppets were involved doesn't limit the reference to only Kermit, Fozzie, Piggy etc.. as defined by the Henson Workshop: "Individually, a Muppet is made by Jim Henson or his company's workshop."
The performers at the Grammys were indeed Muppets by that definition, just as are the Skeksis, Ludo or the LaChoy Dragon from years ago. For that matter, it's got nothing to do with Disney either, at least to a certain extent. Muppets found on Sesame Street are separately owned and copyrighted by Sesame Workshop and The Jim Henson Company which are not part of the Disney family.
