It's really scary seeing Fozzy with legs. Imagine him chasing you through your house with a knife.

@Steve... and saying "Wakka wakka" all the while... o_o

Gonzo has a glock, Fozzie and Piggy are doing the robot, Animal snorted coke off of a nun's ass and is about to go on a rampage, and Kermit has the Autobot Matrix of Leadership in his chest.

Seroiusly, my body will never be ready for this.

Am I the only dreading this?

I love the muppets, I love them dearly. And am I the only one who remembers the disasters called "Muppets from Space." and more importantly. "Muppet Wizard of Oz."

Which is the last movie that they made, and it's terrible to say the least.. I am a dreader, sorry.

But hey, better being positivly surprised than negativlye surprise is what I say.

btw, wonder if you saw it yet.. Wonder Woman never made it past the pilot, due to bad testing have the NBC totally stopped production and it will now most likely never air.

Everything they've done since Muppet's Treasure Island has sucked (and they've done quite a bit). Perhaps it might not suck if they got Brian Henson back in to direct it, but he doesn't seem to want to work with the Muppets anymore.

Ok, correction... their recent YouTube videos have actually been pretty awesome. Maybe there is hope after all.

If there are two people who are sadly missed and desperately needed in television at least - it's Gerry Anderson and JIM HENSON!!!

Crazy to think future generations are not being raised on marionette dolls and Muppets.

I dunno, smile, my sister has collected the Muppet Show DVD's and is now introducing them to my niece. It's how she discovered "Elfin John" (she's five, it's cute).

As for the movie, I'm a bit worried as well. Muppet Christmas Carol was up to snuff with Jim Henson's previous works, but I just couldn't get into Muppet Treasure Island and I have mixed feelings about Muppets From Space. Muppet Wizard of Oz looked like it was just a vehicle for some no name Disney Channel actress before she started snorting coke like the rest.

It seems to me that doing YouTube shorts might be the best thing for the modern muppets, but maybe this will be good. I just feel like I'd be better off watching The Muppet Movie (y'know, the original) again.

I want to see more Marionette monsters, like in Farscape! Also the muppets look really weird with legs.

Adam said...

Thinking about the muppets never ceased to make me smile. I don't know what it is but there's really nothing else like them. I thankfully have avoided the crappy movies and probably won't see whatever this is in theaters, but the just thought of Miss Piggy beating up on somebody makes me giggle.

lol epic.

Mark me down as "cautiously optimistic." I love the Muppets, but the Jason Segel hasn't distinguished himself as a writer yet, and the Muppets have had a decidedly mixed track record over the last 20 years.

Speaking of which, why isn't Muppets Tonight on DVD?

well, this'll be interesting.
