    Lord Lew Grade: That's the entertainment business you have to have appeal, you have to have a hunch. You can't simply go by words when you read the script, you can't by the words of the script's say, you have to visualize what could happen.

    "Hey there, I'm Blooey. ...And this guy is a total liar! Don't listen to him! You heard his story, right? Well, he did TRY to throw me, but he completely tripped! And what happens? I end up landing in lava! LAVA, man! You think that feels good? Thanks to him, you can stick a fork in me! I'm well-done! My pale skin's crispified! I'll NEVER forgive this guy! I'm gonna make him pay if it takes my whole lifetime! That's the ONLY reason I'm still hanging around with him. YOU'LL PAY, LUIGI!"

    "I spent half my life in the military. I used to come home, take off my little soldier hat, put on my painter's hat, and there, I'd build the kind of world that I wanted. It was peaceful, it was quiet, there was no hassles, nobody was yelling... and it was good. Everything was good. Nobody was going to get shot or hurt, not in my world... and it's a happy place." - Bob Ross

    Dan Becker: Letters to Santa was the first Muppet movie in widescreen, right?
    Kirk Thatcher: In 16:9 or 2:35?
    Dan: I see that one of the notes about the movie is it's the first Muppet movie shot in widescreen. I was curious if that added a pain to shooting.
    Kirk: I think what they mean is we shot it in 16:9 because until that time, they forced us to frame everything for TV for 4:3.
    Nate Begle: It was before everybody started getting widescreen TVs.
    Kirk: So we'd shoot it in widescreen, but then cover all the action.
    Dan: Does it change anything having to shoot the Muppets in a different aspect ratio?
    Kirk: It's a big nightmare for me. Here's a perfect example: "I want you to do a painting of my wife or my family, but I'm gonna give you a canvas that's 16 inches by 9 inches or 32 by 18, but I want you to put everything in the 4-by-3 portion. So you gotta not put anything interesting in the 20% of the left and right of the frame, or if you do I might frame it out." That's fine for a still shot, but when things are moving, it becomes a nightmare. Finally on LTS, I said "We gotta stop doing this cause everything looks like crap." In fact somebody dissed Very Merry Muppet Christmas and said "The director doesn't know how to frame a shot, it's the ugliest frame." I'm like "Screw you, pal, I had to frame it for 2 formats at the same time." So I think that's what they're referring to, cause we didn't shoot it in 2:35, we shot it in 16:9 which is hi-def standard now. All three of the Muppet movies I've done were shot that way, but LTS we didn't release a 4:3 cut of it. Everyone agreed "We don't have to frame for that anymore." We just used the whole frame. It was very frustrating the first 2 movies, you just composed uglier, wired looking shots, because everything's crammed in the center of the frame.

    I completely disagree with Kirk on this, but whatever.

    And LTS was a special, not a movie.

    JD Hansel: Have either of you seen the new Muppet Babies, and if so, what are your thoughts on it? Because I thought it was just fine.
    Jarrod Fairclough: I've seen every episode. The reason being is because, my 4-year-old niece loves it. My 7-year-old niece doesn't really care about Muppets, but I managed to get my 4-year-old niece into it, so she loves it. So it's become our thing that she and I would watch MB together, so I've seen every episode. And I'll tell you now, it's fantastic. It's fresh, it's funny, you can tell a lot of love has gone into it. They put little obscure references in the show, that if you weren't a big Muppet fan, you wouldn't really have much idea of what they're talking about. In one episode they do Muppet Ladder, which of coarse was introduced in Muppets Most Wanted. And they just reference "Muppet Ladder? OK, let's do Muppet Ladder." They don't explain what Muppet Ladder is, it's just if you know what MMW is, you'll know what Muppet Ladder is. You've got images of obscure Muppets in the background, Statler and Waldorf are still grumpy, but they're nice-grumpy if that makes sense. The voices are incredible, the voices are probably the best part of the whole thing, aside from Dee Bradley Baker who's playing Animal, I think he could stand to be a little deeper with his voice. But Matt Danner who's playing Kermit sounds eerily close to Matt Vogel's Kermit, it's strange. It sounds like a child version of Matt's Kermit, it doesn't sound like a child version of Jim Henson or Steve Whitmire's Kermit, it sounds like Matt Vogel. And Eric Bauza who's playing Fozzie, when he does the laugh, I actually thought "Have they just got a clip of Eric Jacobson's laugh and put it in?" Because it was that close.
    JD: It's weird, cause the voices are what throw me off the most. Oddly enough, I think the voices take me out of it except for Dee Bradley Baker's Animal, which I think is perfectly fine. Weird how that works. I like the way Gonzo is played, I think Gonzo is played pretty well, I guess the voice for Fozzie is perfectly fine, the writing for Fozzie is strange at times. The writing for Gonzo's the best, I feel like they write that character really well, and I don't know what to make of Summer the Penguin. I feel like she's there just cause she needs to be.
    Clayton Roederer: Just diversity quota, like having an extra girl.
    JD: Not just that, I think that's part of it, but the reason I think they went with Summer instead of Skeeter or any other character they could have used, is cause with a penguin, you get a very marketable image that works well as a plush doll.

    KrazyJoe: How do you handle something like the Steve Whitmire situation especially since you know these guys personally? Is that a tricky thing to maneuver for you?
    Joe Hennes: Yeah, incredibly. It's hard because, technically we are members of the press. And we need to be able to report on things with no emotion, no attachment, with no bias whatsoever. And it's tough because, Steve in particular was our first big interview. He was always incredibly kind to us and did a lot of fun stuff with us over the years. So that was a particularly tough one. We also have a policy on ToughPigs where we don't talk about the puppeteers' personal lives at all. It was the same thing when the Kevin Clash news hit, and we reported very early on that we will not be reporting on this issue. The only news story you'll find on ToughPigs about that was that Kevin had resigned and decided to leave the role of Elmo. We had no interest in following the drama of the story, it didn't feel like it was important to Muppet fandom, and it felt a little icky to be talking about puppeteers' personal lives, or even their professional lives when it comes to things like firing. That's a really tough thing to navigate. Especially since the Muppet performers are the nicest people in the world, and the last thing we wanna do, just because they're the nicest people, is to report on anything that makes them look bad. That doesn't help us, that doesn't help them, and it really doesn't help Muppet fandom. Also the Muppet performers are like the anti-Kardashians, all we know about the Kardashians are their personal lives. And for the life of me, I do not understand why people subscribe to US Weekly. Like, that blows my mind, I don't understand it.

    "When someone tells you who they are, believe them the first time"
    -Maya Angelou

    Something that happened to my mom recently reminded me of how true this quote is. A new potential employing was being hired at the 911 Dispatch Center she works at and the guy kept repeatedly warning his possible future co-workers,
    "I'm an @$$hole".

    Turns out, he wasn't lying or even exaggerating at all because he ended up not getting hired due to saying some pretty hurtful, brutal things about a local person he didn't like (some of them were even personal attacks on the man's appearance and other awful stuff like that).

    Maya Angelou was totally right on the money when she said that quote above.
