If the Muppets do anything at Comic Con next year, you and I both have some serious saving up to do! But at least you live closer to San Diego than I do! But I'm pretty darn hyped for the show myself!I am green with envy of those who were there at the panel yesterday and saw the characters (especially Rowlf!!!) and performers do their magic in person. Nice move, Disney! Awesome that the panel got a standing ovation. Even though I couldn't afford to go there, the panel got me even more hyped about the show this fall.
I would have gone if it wasn't for an 8 hour drive and being broke, otherwise I can assure you that I would have recorded the pilot. (It's not easy being a broke Muppet fan in Sacramento...)As awesome as the panel was, I hope someone recorded the pilot. I'm kinda peeved that they're not gonna broadcast it.
Agreed, I'm so glad someone put it on YouTube and filmed the whole thing for those of us who couldn't be there. I thought everyone was terrific, I laughed a lot while watching and even got teary eyed for a couple of comments. I'm really looking forward to this show in September!That panel was AMAZING!!!
It was so great to see all the Muppeteers playing off each other with no boundaries- they all looked so relaxed and excited to be there!
My favourite moments:
- Steve picking on Eric through Rizzo when he couldn't think of a joke for Fozzie.
-"So how is Kermit as a boss?"
Rizzo: "Well, he's in a box at the moment."
-Pepe and Gonzo embracing when the audience was 'awwing' over Bill Prady's line about Kermit caring.
-Gonzo: "I have a skeleton in my body!!"
-Steve picking on Bob throughout the presentation.
-The Muppets ganging up on Piggy about her skills as a talk show host.
-The Tabasco running gag between Steve and Dave.
-Seeing Steve's interaction with the little girl. It was so natural and oh so adorable!!! 'Can I have a hug?'
I don't think it could have gone better! It was wonderful to hear the audience responding so vibrantly and then to give them a standing ovation at the end! This is the kind of event I been really wanting to see for a while now. It was just.....perfect!!!
