    Oh man. New Oscar is really bothering me. His mouth is crooked. His left eyebrow lowers too much, his fur's much too long... This is the best he's looked.

    I was watching a documentary about Wallace & Gromit last night, and they have pretty much the exact mentality about not removing thumb and fingerprints from the characters on-camera as a lot of us do about the imperfections older Muppets have: it gives the characters a certain warmth, edge, and charm that would otherwise be lost if they were absolutely and completely flawless.

    I said I missed when Telly had a bigger nose, but now it's too big!

    This is what I meant:

    I should point out that the puppet in the pic I used is just an alternate puppet they used once in 2003. It still really looks off though.

    The more I think about it, there's something about how Camilla looks now that makes her look too . . . I guess there's a "plush toy" look to her as well that many people say that Fozzie has now.

    I was watching some of the new footage and actually thought, what have they done to Fozzie's voice, it is awful.

    I don't really mind it because it evolved over time. And at least Eric is doing a good job with the character overall.

    Isn’t that Blake Lively?

    Why is she trying to look like a female, turquoise Gonger?

    She looks like Yosemite Sam let his mustache grow too long.
    Or like The Lorax.

    Yep, that's the one.

    Maybe it’s a new Rosita puppet or something.

    Yeah, I gotta agree, that Rosita puppet looks creepy. :eek:

    Rosita needs to shave her mustache.

    Or maybe what the naysayers is true! Maybe introducing an autistic Muppet such as Julia really has opened the doors for LGBT Muppets! Maybe Rosita is now a transgendered monster! Maybe she's undergone a sex-change operation and will now be known as Roberto!

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Now watch as this spreads and becomes a crazy rumor that'll drive alt-right nuts and start boycotting SS out the wazoo for it.

    No, she's just finally going through puberty. She is 27, after all.
