    When and where did Jim say that?

    Anyways I liked this episode. Nice to see Gonzo getting focus, and it made good use of the documentary format. Also that Drum Battle of Grohl and Animal was WORTH IT!!

    I only watched parts of it so unlike my other posts, i won't really be able to tell you much. And to make matters worse, I had to watch the episode on my iPad. After the video kept lagging and the sound cut in and out, I gave up. When each of the Muppets (Chip, Sam, and Bobo) said what their dreams were, it reminded me of the song I've Got A Dream from Tangled.

    Well, maybe that was when he got famous. He did say he did the voodoo woman back when he was 14. Oh...May wanna rephrase that.

    This episode was pretty awesome. We got a couple of songs, Scooter and Janice interact, Chip being a tap-dancer was funny, Piggy trying to sell water was funny, Gonzo doing a stunt was awesome, and the end with Animal and Dave Grohl drum-battling was the icing on the cake. Also, Gonzo's my kinda guy. He doesn't drink alcohol, he drinks Diet Coke.

    I finally loved the band story line! I am also really loving Lips.

    I think that was actually a record for how much Lips spoke, ever.

    The best thing about this was Kermit seemed like his old self again. He always believed in Gonzo to a certain extent. Which I thought was great.

    This was a good episode.

    Loved how Uncle Deadly and Kermit got Gonzo's stunt approved while Piggy was unconscious from the laser contouring therapy.
    The Muppet poker game with JGL and all that sweet Muppet money... Now we know where he got the funding to produce the Fraggle Rock movie.
    Gonzo and other Muppets talking about their dreams was fun. Bobo as a Chicago bear, not a part of the football team, just living in Chicago, that made me chuckle just because of all the Chicago-centric folks from the ESPN programs I watch. And Chip wanting to tapdance across America was a nice little throwback to the Muppets innate dreams of making millions of people happy.

    Oh, and we got the payoff with Gonzo being shot out of the cannon!
    :concern: I am Gonzo the Great!
    :) No, you're Gonzo the Greatest!

    But the best part of all was the drum battle at the end between Animal and his Moopet doopelganger, Animool.
    Good episode all around.

    I really loved this episode. But there hasn't really been an episode I HAVEN'T loved lol.

    I must say how impressed I am with Bill Barretta. Bobo, Dr. Teeth, and Rowlf all have similar voices, but it seems like he's really grown more comfortable with Teeth and Rowlf because they all sound different.

    That is a very good point because even when Jim preformed them both they sounded very much the same.

    When Scooter came to talk to the band, I couldn't help that they were high as a kite. I mean they have the lights turned down, Zoot thinking the moon in the room was real or store bought, etc.

    Lips spoke several times. I think he and Zoot need to be the center focus in an episode.

    I'm also kind of getting tired of Scooter and his nerdiness. He kind of reminds me of Cliff Clavin from Cheers since both characters lived with their moms as adults. His mom wakes him up to James Taylor...???
