    I don't think Bill has that kind of power.

    Secondly, Pepe may be "easier" to write for because these writers have never written for Rowlf before. They can watch ever episode of TMS, every movie, every special, but they may never "know" Rowlf. They may understand Pepe a little bit more. He's newer and he hasn't been cemented in the hearts and minds of the people of the world...

    True, but I was talking about the people who are super Muppet fans. You know the kind who ask, "What's the name of those old guys in the balcony?"

    oh! the ones that make me angry cause they ask rediculous questions........but at least they try! maybe if they try they can be great muppet fans

    and as i have said before i think pepe is building a younger hipper fan base........more of us younger people can relate with him...cause he is the man!

    Isn't it weird how there's this thread about Bill, and we're not the ones who started it (and we haven't posted a whole lot)...

    he's got stuff to do!

    What? Those are the real hardcore fans...the ones who put up old Muppet stuff on ebay with the words 'Fonzie and Rover rare Jim Henderson lot!' LOL

    Anyways, my fave bill moment in recent times...Joe the Armadillo trying to take over his trailer on the KSY dvd...That was too much!

    I have yet to see the KSY DVD (I'm not going to *buy* it. I have better ways to waste my money). The video store I always go to doesn't have it (they have better prices than Blockbuster. Plus no membership fees), and I'm too lazy to go to Blockbuster (first, I have to drive there. Then once I get there I'll have to wait *forever* to leave because it's on a busy street, and it takes like 3 hours for me to pull out of there)...

    Oh Emmy...me thinks youve been posioned by the KSY feature...as I can tell you straight up, the KSY dvd is PURE GOLD! Forget the feature(well the live life as a pet thingy was great)

    The special features ALONE warrant a purchase of the KSY dvd...from Joes encounter with Bill and all the backstage area(truly one of the funniest Muppet things in YEARS) to the Kermit interview, to the deleted scenes(WOW...cants ay enough about those) to all the other extra stuff...its definately worth the purchase for any Muppet fan out there.
  12. EmmyMik

    EmmyMik Well-Known Member

    Well I'm just worried about buying KSY (bad, bad, bad, bad. I mean *I* can write stuff better than that, and I have too, lol).

    If I work up enough courage, I might get it soon... maybe...

    But it sure would answer a lot of questions (that we aren't willing to answer, lol)...

    i think pepe is already cemented in the hearts of a lot of people who like the muppets..

    personally, i think the writers need to write rowlf in more just to get to "know" him more..put pepe on hiatus for a while..that's what i would do..

  19. EmmyMik

    EmmyMik Well-Known Member

    I can see where you're coming from, but why does Pepe have to be put on hiatus. Can't he perform *both* characters?

    That's why IM chats are private! LOL!
