Wasn't Jerry done with full bodied characters by the late seventies-early eighties?

I don't know if this was true or not, but I heard that there may have been AutoTune involved?
I am not sure where you are hearing that from, but you never really know. We know these guys can sing, so if "autotune" was used, it was probably just to correct the flat note here and there (like many artists do).

To those who posted the videos of :smile: doing "Rainbow Connection" and the finale, thank you. For us who weren't able to see the show live, this is the next best thing. :smile:

Just watching them perform Rainbow Connection and followed by Magic Store really brings back that magic we've been missing from The Muppets since the 2015 show got cancelled.

Not saying the 2015 show wasn't amazing because I loved it, but doing shows like these gives me hope for the future of The Muppets.
Yeah. We need Muppets to sing family friendly songs like that rather than "Da** Reputation" :frown:

BTW, I just noticed there's a smorgasbord of these vids online. I may get to watch the show in its entirety after all. Lol.

Thog was last seen in TMM before the 2011 movie, and hasn't been used much since. I think the size is the main issue; he's much bigger and has a more limited mobility.
Actually the last appearance of the original Thog was in episode 502 of The Muppet Show (where he was a lot bigger... due to trick photography).

I wonder if his size was an issue back when Jerry Nelson performed him. The original was one of the biggest Muppets of all time. Though they did use him quite a bit before TMS began, only for his appearances on the show to be few and far between (and his speaking appearances to be rarer). He even got left out of most numbers featuring the other full-bodied large monsters.

In case someone else likes to sing along with the music for the fireworks finale, here's the lyrics so you don't get thrown off:
There'll be spectacle
There'll be fantasy
There'll be derring do
And stuff like you would never see
Hey! A movie!
Yeah! We're gonna be a movie!
Starring everybody...
...And me!
There'll be heroes bold!
There'll be comedy!
And a lot of fuss
That ends for us real happily
Hey! A movie!
We can watch it all develop!
Starring everybody...
...And me!
We'll take a world
And set it on its ear
Come on, join in
We're gonna start right here
Starring everybody
Everybody
Everybody
...And me!
Oh, there's no fire in the fireplace
There's no carpet on the floor
Don't try to order dinner
There's no kitchen anymore
But if the road's been kinda bumpy
And you need to rest a spell
Well, welcome home to Happiness Hotel
Well, welcome home to Happiness Hotel
When the course is laid and the anchor's weighed,
A sailor's blood begins racing.
With our hearts unbound and our flag unfurled,
-We're underway and off to see the world!
*Underway and off to see the world!*

Hey, ho, we'll go anywhere the wind is blowing
-Manly men are we!
Sailing for adventure on the deep blue sea.
Sailing for adventure on the deep blue sea.
We're doing a sequel
We're back a popular demand
C'mon on everybody, strike up the band
We're doing a sequel
Another feature attraction
Places please, light the lights, roll camera, action
I thought it was the end
But no my friends this is
When we get to do it all again (Do it all again)
Until the credits role
We got another goal to show that
We can do it all again
We're doing a sequel
It's more of the same
Let's give it a name
How 'bout The Muppets Again
It's The Muppets Again
With The Muppets again
It's the Muppets again
Everything is great everything is grand
I got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand
Everything is perfect its falling into place
I cant seem to wipe this smile off my face
Life's a happy song when there's someone by my side to sing along
When your alone life can be a little rough
It makes you feel like your three feet tall
When its just you times can be tough
When there's no one there to catch your fall
Everything is great everything is grand
I got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand
Everything is perfect its falling into place
I cant seem to wipe this smile off my face
Life's a happy song when there's someone by your side to sing
Life's a happy song when there's someone by your side to sing along
It's no good complainin', and pointless to holler
If she's a beauty, she'll get under your collar
She made a monkey out of old King Kong
I hope that somethin' better comes along
Still, it's fun when they're fetching
And agree to see an etching that you keep at your lily pad
There is no solution, it's part of evolution
The pitter-patter of soles, the little feet of tadpoles

There's no limitation to mixin' and matchin'
Some get an itchin' for a critter they've been scratchin'
A skunk was badgered, the results were strong
I hope that somethin' better
I hope that somethin' better
I hope that somethin' better comes along
Together again
Gee, it's good to be together again
I just can't imagine that you've ever been gone
It's not starting over, it's just going on

Together again
Now we're here and there's no need remembering when
'Cause no feeling feels like that feeling
Together again

Together again
Gee, it's good to be together again
I just can't imagine that you've ever been gone
It's not starting over, it's just going on

Together again
Now we're here and there's no need remembering when
'Cause no feeling feels like that feeling
Together-a
Together-a
Together again
Together again

Has anyone tried to make a supercut of this? If not, may I do the honors?
I was thinking of doing that, but I just don't have the time. I feel like you could piece together a fair amount of the show with YouTube/Instagram clips and Facebook livestreams. Good luck!
