CGI Muppet Babies Show?

    I hope they don't add Pepe as a main Muppet baby... :concern:

    If they did I would be upset becaause Pepe is a pain.

    However, I would love to see the Electric Mayhem (perhaps as teenagers, since I persume this series isn't going to try and be cannon in terms of ages and stuff...) Rizzo would make a good staying memeber, could replace Bean if nec.

    It would be great if they could add penguins, and Beau to some part of the program. Maybe Beau could be a friend of Nanny's in one episode.

    I hope that we do not seee above Nany's knees...

    I dunno, i haven't really seen any definitive information about that. I'd guess it'll probably be a completely new show - i don't think we'll see a "Nanny" or anything like that. It'll probably be more like Swamp Years.
    As for the voices, i have no idea. I would guess maybe the older Muppeteers will loop the biggest characters.

    What? No Nanny?

    I hope it dosn't become a "canon" prequel series with the muppets as friends beofre Muppet Movie. That would be rubishness defined.

    Why would you call that rubbish, but you accpet the muppet movie as a real history of the muppet universe? They went from meeting on road trip to making the muppet movie with no muppet show, no theater owned by Scooter's uncle, and so on. How would muppet babies screw that up anmymore than it already is?

    Hmmm, good point WiGgY...

    Yep, I second that. :)

    Well, perhaps I put that too strungly. Pepe isn't exactly a 'pain' but he would be all wrong for the Muppet Babies, certainly.

    Bea:zany:{"I am Pepe, ok. I am a baby, whah. I need a nappy change, ok."}regard

    I agree Pepe wouldn't be right as a baby unless his personality was totally changed. You can't have a baby being suave.

    I totally agree. It cracks me up thinking of a baby being suave. :crazy:
  10. No anime?

    "True" Animation buffs would know that anime has been around since 1917, (though the modern look of it came in the 50's) and the engineer of the now famous big eyes, little mouth convention took that idea from Disney (Osamu Tezuka, creator of Astro Boy and deemed to God of Anime mentioned that he took the large eyes from Bambi, he also nodded at Mac Fleicher's Betty Boop)

    I am not too sure of what you are trying to say here, whether you are saying that anime is not animation or that people who like anime dont have a valid opinion. Either way you are wrong. Anime revoltionized adult (not pornographic) animation. Japanese creators used the medium to tell stories far more complex than American animators or its investors dared to. In doing so, it revitalized a medium that may have only been used to tell simple childrens stories, allowing it to grow into something much more mature.

    Now I am not pompus enough to say that animation would not have naturally evolved to higher ground than children's story telling, but since you seem pompus enough to assume that try animation fans dont hold anime to any value I thought I would at least interject a bit.

    Ok. 3 animated films have one best animated picture.
    Spirited Away
    Finding Nemo
    Second what's with the negativeness about CG and anime? Sorry I just don't get it. Yeah I understand that those animation style aren't for everyone, just relax with the negativity.
    I like animated TV show done from the early 90's on for their crispness. The colors just seem more vibrant. Many of them are more detailed (ex: Batman:The Animated Series) For that reason I dislike shows such as Ren & Stempy and Ed, Edd & Eddy. They lack detail and color.
    So I like CG and anime. CG for it's innovations, anime for it's ability to blend detail, color and story.
    That's why I like Teen Titans and the new Justice League. Teens Titans really does have good story episodes, and I like how it seems to blend anime style with US techniques.
    The reason I think for the crispness in detail and color now a days is because stuff is computer animation, not hand drawn.

    btw. Lilo and Stitch rocks! my daughter will sit through it no matter how many times I show it.
  12. I agree with Violia, however I feel that part of a vintage show loses its appeal when it is transfered to a new media. The new Care Bear's Movie is CG and it bothers me that my bears from the 80's are now 3D with peachfuzz faces (they arent quality furry faces on , say, Monster's Inc... they are the quality of a video game ) So I can see where people are hesistant.... anime is still cool though.

    Hooray otaku!

    I agree, when the quality is not there, there is a big difference between traditional and cheapie CGI stuff. :)

    If the Henson team took the time and hired a decent studio to make a cgi version of The Muppet Babies it could work.

    It's the Disney team, not the Henson team. Disney has access to decent CGI. I'd love to see a CGI Muppet Baby movie with Pixar.

    Disney didn't own Pixar. Disney could animate at their own animation studio instead though.

    Can't wait to see what happens. I know I'll like no matter what happens. Bring on the Muppet Babies w/ the Henson's CGI!
  19. McFraggle

    McFraggle Well-Known Member

    I'd like to see it as well.

    phew at least this thread didnt dive into an "anime" thread like it looked like it was going.

    Something about 20-something fan boy's running just reminds me a little too much of my ex-roommate and his anime hub's and expo's and other "interesting" activities.

    Got nothing against anime, it just seems that those who do like it often take it to frightening levels.
