    hey guys and gals!!

    Almost 3 years ago i came up with this concept to live the ultimate muppet fan dream...i was going to use stop motion photography/filming techniques and put MYSELF as the host of an ultimate episode of the show using the PALISADES muppet figures and photos of myself in various poses...lol... i collected the entire series of figures...and photographed them all in every pose imagineable... and then i got busy with a new project....i opened a puppet theater and ran it for 2 years... well...the puppet theater is now closing due to being outbid on our lease....so now i am revisiting the project but NOW i have teamed up with some friends and we are going to BUILD the entire cast over the next 2 years...then our plan is to rent a venue for a month and build the needed sets (ive gotten lots of experience in set building with our theater) and we are going to film the whole thing as an homage to the GREATEST GROUP OF PERFORMERS AND ARTIST TO EVER GRACE THE GLOBE!!

    I completed the audio three years ago... using clips from over 50 shows... i sought out hosts that had my same name and chopped clips and plot points that seemed doable... and this is how it turned out


    we will probably tweek it and add some stuff as we go along...but we are excited about this project and hope to entertain you guys with it some day in the future!!

    ABSOLUTELY!! That's our plan!!

    Well...atleast 25 or 30 of them...whatever it takes to complete the show! We want some background characters to be milling around up by the dressing rooms during scenes.... really going for authenticity

    I hope Philo, Gunge, Murray Minstrel, Brool Minstrel, the Sneels, the Frackles, Daphne Dreamer (from Mopatop's Shop) Fred the Dragon, Pam-I-Am, any Sesame Street background characters, Honkers, Dingers, any Ed Sullivan Show characters, and any of the Puppetman Dragons (Earl, Gertha, Cinders, etc) appear in this as well.

    Any chances of Sesame Street, Muppets Tonight, Bear in the Big Blue House, and Fraggle Rock cameos?

    We really hope to create the authentic feel of the original show...with no distractions...so for the most part we will stick with the original cast

    Ok. I hope you agree with the part about Philo, Gunge, and the others making background cameos. Thanks for the info. :)
