    There was origionaly plans for a new full time show from what I understand. I could be wrong though

    Whoa! That'd be toooooo awesome. They obviously have a set built for the Muppet Show still.

    In fact, when that German Co. had the Muppets, I remember hearing that it was their intention to bring the show bask - as if the 20 year time lapse hadn't happened (you know what I mean).

    The closest They've come theme-wise would be IaVMMCM, I suppose. That's why I love that special.

    Do you think Frank (Oz) and Jerry (Nelson) would come back to perform? Who would perform Jim (Henson) and Richard (Hunt's) characters?

    Frank wouldn't have to, they've already replaced him Jerry, maybe if he felt like working that hard. Isn't Richard's brother doing Scooter?

    Adam Hunt did Scooters Voice in Muppets from Space but most recently Ricky Boyd has taken over Scooter.

    I doubt Frank and Jerry would come out of retirement.

    I just wanted to say that Ricky Boyd did an outstanding job with Scooter in MWoO. It was almost flawless.

    Wait a minute, they're not doing the full time show? I'm getting confused. Some one explain what's going on.

    If they end up doing a new show, are they completely married to the variety show format? Why retread what they've already done -- why not do a Columbo or Magnum PI type of show, where Kermit is a private eye and Piggy is his secretary, and Fozzie and Gonzo are his goofy assistants... Or the show is in Vegas, and Kermit is the detective, and Fozzie is a lousy local comedian, Piggy is a showgirl... Of course they wouldn't play it completely straight. Lots of winking at the audience. They would realize they were in a TV show. But you could throw just about every Muppet in there at one time or another...

    I really don't think the variety show format has much chance of surviving without cramming it full of crass, lowbrow humor. Otherwise it's going to be marginalized as a children's show, and I think we'd all like to see something a little different.

    Of course, if a variety show is what they come up with, heck, I'd give it a look-see.

    The vegas idea makes me think..... Csi: Muppets

    Well the autopsy scenes would be funny anyways... they do a funny camera angle on all the stuffing and foam as they zoom in on where a puppet was shot...or they have the bodies get up and talk ala veternarians hospital....

    "I think he lost his legs before he was killed"

    "I'm a puppet...I have no legs"

    Did anyone really like Very Merry Muppet Christmas? I always thought it was a missing something a great deal. Maybe Frank Oz.

    Who do you guys think would host?


    Actually, it's painful to think about who Disney would want to host. Who would you guys LIKE to see host?
