Bear in Playhouse Disney Live!

    So I finally got to see something yesterday that I have been curious about for a long time. I went to see the Playhouse Disney Live show at Disney's California Adventure yesterday. I have an annual passport to the Disney parks and I go pretty often. I have always wondered what the PDL show was like but never really had anyone to see it with me and I would feel silly seeing it alone. My girlfriend (a huge Disney freak just like me!) went with me and we saw it. Anyway...I absolutely LOVED it!!! It was so much fun and I could not stop smiling the whole time. I felt like I was a little kid again. Of course, anytime I see Bear makes me happy. The show was so well done. The sets, the lights, the performances.
    I recommend seeing this show to anyone who has small children (and even if you don't and you have an appreciation for this kind of thing). It is only about 25 minutes long I think.
    Anyone else seen this show? What did you think? I would love to hear your thoughts.

    My wife and I took a Mini-Vacation a couple weekends ago, in Disneyland! We had 2-Day Parkhoppers, and we had to make sure to go on all the new rides (Tower of Terror, Astro-Blasters), as well as see all the new shows.

    I LOVE the Muppets, but when we were in line for Playhouse Disney Live, I almost convinced myself that it would be stupid, not fully understanding what the ride/show would be all about. Fortunately, my wife reminded me that we wouldn't be back for almost a year, and we better see it just for fun!

    IT WAS THE COOLEST!!! We walked in the room and saw Bears' Big Blue House up on stage, then the show started, and BEAR CAME WALKING OUT! I'm not a huge Bear fan, but it is a Muppet show, and I was freaking out! Then Tutter popped up, then Ojo, Treelo, and OH MY GOD, I couldn't believe there were real - live - Muppets, performing RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!!! My wife couldn't believe how I reacted to it all.

    Anyway, here's a link to all the pics from our trip, some of Playhouse Disney Live!

    hey gang,

    My Cuz and I seen it last month (in may 05) at Disney World in FL. We sat in the middel on that hard blue floor. I LOVED EVERY min of it! I was even singing along with Bear waith the "Big blue houe" song and the "Good bye song". I got pics to that I'll post soon! :) Poor little Tutter :cry: he was scared lol The oNLY thing that got me upset was the 3 kids dancing right in my way, and I kindy asked the mom if she could move em just a bit...and she did :smirk:

    I was pretty close to seeing this in Disneys California adventure park last year. We just didnt get enough time in that park, we only went on about 2 rides and attractions there which is crazy!

    KermieBaby47 Well-Known Member

    Muppetsdownunder, which rides/attractions did you go on? We always hit:

    -Soarin' Over California (my favorite ride of all time, at either park!)
    -Playhouse Disney Live! (will now be a regular favorite!)
    -Muppetvision 3-D
    -California Screamin' (awesome rollercoaster)
    -Tower of Terror
    -whatever is showing at the Hyperion Theatre (it was Aladdin this time!)
    -always visit the Animation Building in the Hollywood Backlot
    -A Bug's Land/It's Tough to Be a Bug
    -Orange Stinger (like the Swings at County/State Fairs)

    Missed these rides this last time, but usually go on them:

    -Grizzly River Run (awesome water ride!)
    -Maliboomer (Like the Big Shot in Vegas)
    -Sun Wheel (Ferris Wheel type of ride)
    -Mulholland Madness Coaster

    Anyway, there's lots to do at California Adventure, I love it. Hope you get more time there on your next visit to the States!

    I probably went on more things than I thought but we really didnt get enough time. I had the time of my life in L.A and cant wait to some back to the US ASAP! The problem was in the californian adventure park I was with my Mum and there wasnt many rides, or attractions that would interest her, she is a real woos with most rides, even the tea cups scare her. There wasnt much shade so we just decided to go to Disneyland and ended up spending the rest of the time there.

    I went on
    Soarin' Over California
    Muppetvision 3-D a few times
    Tower of Terror
    and a few more.
    and just generally had a look round the park wasting precious ride time.
    Hope to go back there soon tho! Too many places I want to go to. (so little cash) :)

    Its a great show. I have only seen it once, but I remember lighting up even more when each Big Blue House pal popped up in the opening song. I was so excited to see that I was like a little kid all over again.

    MissterPiggy, MissterPiggy!!!

    Hey there! Great to have a cast member visit the board! Yes, it's an AWESOME show, and I can hardly believe you guys don't all the attention you deserve!!!

    I'm sure you've heard about the Muppet Auditions in North Hollywood on September 23rd. Anyway, I'm planning on visiting DCA after the auditions and was wondering if there was a way I (and maybe a couple others) would be able to meet and talk with you and some of the other performers?

    My wife and I got to see the show in early June, and I REALLY wanted to stay after and try to talk to you guys, but my legs fell asleep and my wife practically had to drag me out of the hall!

    Thanks again for visiting Muppet Central!

    Anthony :)

    I saw this show at Disneyland and I really liked it. Although, the main "token human" guy was best. He had so much energy and sang so good that I wish he had his own show really.

    Oh, I just realized I might've just posted about the guy I saw at the show. I was there on Sept 22nd or 23rd around 3 pm, MissterPiggy...was that you?

    Just so you know....

    That was me in doing Bear both days that weekend. Glad you enjoyed the show. I'll be sure to tell "Jamie" that he has fans at Muppet Central! If anyone else plans on coming down to see the show, let me know. We can try to set up some photo ops after the show! FUN!!!

    Hey MissterPiggy!

    I was there with Fozzie that day. What happened at the end of the show? Bear started to talk, then was abruptly cut-off mid-sentence. Then "Jamie" said, "Well, that's it! Bye!" and ran off the stage. Wasn't there supposed to be a "Goodnight" song?

    Hey, MissterPiggy!

    I do love the screenname for sure. I wish we had known you when we were out there. WOE has an annual pass, so he should be able to come out and say hi just about anytime.

    Being in Memphis, I doubt I'll be back out that way for a LONG time! But, I hope to meet you and Jamie when I do!

    Oh, and you have to let us know what Jamie thinks of having Muppet Fans as Fans of his! LOL!!

    Minor Muppet Mishaps...

    So from time to time... something goes wrong, and we aren't able to continue the show. I can't recall exactly what had happened during that show, that we had to cut it short (sans the Goodbye Song).:o

    Most likely, a prong or trapdoor under the stage hadn't locked correctly, making it VERY dangerous for "Jamie" or Bear to walk across the stage. You never know what's gonna happen, and when. But occurances are rare.:concern:

    I let, "Jamie" know about his Muppet fans, and he laughed. He's so used to the little pre-schooler set screaming his name to get his attention, but he's not sure how he would have reacted had it been a couple of 20-30-something's yelling for him. I'd love to see it! LOL!

    If ANYONE is ever visiting the park, come by and see our humble show. We've been awarded attraction of the year, so we're pretty proud of ourselves. Send me a message before-hand, and we'll see about taking some pictures with Bear!!

    Great news on the award! Is that in Disneyland Park only, or attraction parks collectively?

    You know, in 1993 or 1994 I won the Disney Spirit Award as an employee of The Disney Store. Do they still do that company-wide? (That was back when The Disney Store was more...Disney).

    I wish I had known you and Jamie back when I visited! I would have cheered for you both if nothing more than to see if I could make you blush a little! HA HA!! Well, not that I would have seen YOU blush, but maybe Bear might have turned more reddish-orange in the cheeks. :)
  19. I must concur from the East Coast show. We love to peform for you and love it when adults enjoy the show just as much as the kids.

    And come see me, er, Bear in the parade.
