    they really should I agree a muppet sitcom is where it's at I think :)
    Brian always tride to do it with other things but never really with the muppets themselves and I think thats where he went wrong he should have done a muppet sitcom instead Jim was heading in the right direction with muppet tv but see in my opinion brian took a step backwords in jims own work when he did muppets tonight...the thing that was so cool about muppet tv was that it was so dark and yet the characters where so bright and vibrant...
    I do enjoy pepe but I'm not offended I think there allot of more interesting characters than him and clifford the characters that should have made more of an impact where Digit, lindberg, and Leon from the jim henson hour and in my opinion bobo from muppets tonight he was the big winner to me.

    like I said before I really think they should just let go all together of the classic characters and start something brand new.
    Because to me thats whats missing these new people aren't jim and frank and anyone else they shouldnt be making them try to be some one they arent doing a character that isn't them. instead they should be doing a new show that has the characters they do. And bring in some other new guys who have interesting characters.
    thats just my muppety opinion though.

    Yeah - start something without 30 years of history - history can be baggage! That's why I'm glad the new Star Wars TV show will feature minor characters from the films.

    well thats kinda one of the reasons Jim was selling the muppets to Disney in the first place was that he still loved them but he wanted to move on...but he thought Disney at the time would be a safe place for his characters.
    But To me Jim henson was a thinker and a dooer or is that dooser? hah I kille me :p But most people can't move on and that the problem..and when I say that I don't mean the fans I mean the henson family other than brian finally thank good..well in some aspects..the puppet improve is a stroke of genious it really should be a weekly show on abc or something.
    once again just my opinions....and looking to the future...I sure wish I owned the muppets though I'd do allot with them and talk closely to the fans about what they think.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Come to thin of it, for all the complaining I've done about Disney, I also have to consider this... If I ran a compnay which had a chance to buy them, I sure would. And If I took over a company that had just bought them, I probably wouldn't sell them either.

    Has Disney ever repsonded to a massive cry-out from fans for anything before (i.e., petitions, etc)?

    I don't think the fans have really made their voices heard to be quite honest..:smirk: And I mean besides on a muppet based website.

    These look like the start of new shows, so 2007 is another new show, so I guess it means Muppets TV has been approved for more shows??

    I hope the other thing is a new MuppetFest or some kind of convention.

    Let's examine why as of yet, there has not been a new Muppet show since 1996.

    There was the 2002 Team Todd produced Fox Muppet show "edgy" prime time show that never happened

    There was the America's Next Muppet pitch taped that never aired

    There's "Muppets TV" which I hate to say, I don't count as actual official
    Muppet canon

    Aw...but along comes...these things, these things called pilot pitches.
    Usually the length of a full 22 minute episode. In 1975 it was Sex and Violence, the precursor to the Muppet Show. In 1987 it was Inner Tube, the precursor to Jim Henson Hour. In 1995 it was "Muppets Live!", the precursor
    to Muppets Tonight!

    Well...I am not sure if I can spill the beans on anything yet detail wise,
    but something has definately just been put in the can...and it aint Oscar's
    moldy sardines;)

    1989 was the Jim Henson Hour, which is officially the second Muppet Show, Muppets Tonight being the third.

    Oh no, Muppets TV was just a kind of obscure French tv exclusive thing, made for a French audience.

    Yes, another Muppetfest event would be pretty sweet;)

    Is that a yes it is another MuppetFest or are you just teasing some more.

    beaker Well-Known Member

    there can never be another "Muppetfest", I believe Creation Entertainment hoilds the right to that name, and I don't see them doing another Muppety event any time soon.

    Are we talking about something new from the Muppets or Jim Henson Company? You are not refering to the Puppet Cafe talk show or Fraggle Rock Movie are you?:confused:

    Are you teasing about another Muppet Convention?
  19. beaker

    beaker Well-Known Member

    Both JHC and Muppet Studios, and nothing to do with Puppet Cafe or the FR movie(which sadly might not come out til 2009)


    Well this thread isnt about that, but I would find merely a Muppet convention kind of boring, wouldnt you?
