    No its not the Skrumps. Ever wonder what the Muppets do behind closed doors, whats happened to em since the last movie? Look around and you might find out!

    These messages are getting more and more cryptic

    I'm not sure...but I think that's the idea...I guess they're intended to make us think, or investigate, or they could just be speculation, or hype, or hyperbole, or just...something to lock onto and make us excited and anticipated (word?) for news that may be coming.


    I for one am MOST intrigued.

    The answers are there. You just have to find 'em. ;) Well, most of them, anyway.

    This post is long and I haven't read all of it, so if this is a repetition of something, I'm sorry!

    I just read on the Muppet wikia site that Bill Barretta directed a pilot, which completed in January 2007, in mocumentary-style following the Muppets as they went about trying to produce a new TV show.

    Is this what the archaic hints are pointing to?

    ...wow...now THIS is more like information...what else do you know?

    As I haven't yet made 10 posts I can't link haha! But if you go to the Muppet wikia page and search for 2007 Presentation Pilot it should pop right up!

    It sounds pretty cool, actually! I love the whole Fozzie-worked-on-Moesha thing. Much better than the idea for America's Next Muppet.

    You're right, I never liked the concept, or anything to do with the idea of America's Next Muppet, or the FoxPilot, or any of the new-er show ideas...however, I found the page you mentioned, read it, stared at it a bit, re-read it, stared some more. And this is the first 'New Show' idea I have seen that I trully love from first sight.

    I won't copy the contents here, because I am really not sure if I should at this stage. But if you want to hype, go check it out.

    I'm right there with you Beau. It's got the GOOD butterflies-in-my-tummy feeling, not the UH-OH butterflies. The Muppets are their best when they're a hair away from complete and total failure. I can totally see that happening here.
  12. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    YES! So many times before I have had BAD butterflies. Mwoo gave me them, and look how that turned out...This, this gives me good butterflies...which is convinient because I have some good toastflies here too.

    You know those things that the Toe Ticklers turn into on Fraggle Rock? That's what my bad butterflies look like in my head. They freak me out.
  14. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Toe-Ticklers was the first Fraggle Rock episode I saw, and coincidently my favorite. I just loved how they were nice, then pests, then locked away, and then finally they became these amazing creatures...

    Reminds me of the Muppets...fun (TMS, etc) then annoying (KSY, MWoO), and now...oooh, they COULD be butterflies!

    We're totally having the same conversation on two different threads hehe.

    Yeah, I was completely disheartened by WoO and KSY--particularly the latter which was so awful I physically had a hard time watching it. I had such high hopes after Very Merry... Hopefully those hopes can soon be restored!

    We of MC are good at having one conversation in two threads...or somethimes two conversations in one thread...

    I have a whole lot of thoughts on the Pilot...but I'll wait and see if a new thread is going to be started before I start gushing in various threads.
  18. SarahOnBway

    SarahOnBway Well-Known Member

    Yes. New thread = very good idea.

    hehe, I feel so accomplished! :excited:

    Woawoawoah. That's a very awesome idea, here's to hoping this becomes a new show!! Very smart clever, and fresh idea. Fozzie writing for "Moesha," who knew?

    Also, welcome to the boards SarahonBway!
