Hey! I am in band too! What do you play, saxophone? I play the trumpet.
I dreamt last night that I was trying to find out about the new Muppet movie, and ended up breaking into Walter's apartment, only to realize that now I was part of the movie. Walter even showed me his MC account and said he liked talking to me.
I don't, per say, remember what my dream was about. All I know is the first thing I thought when my alarm went off this morning was, "Thank God Telly's coming over for lunch today." And yes. I meant Telly from Sesame Street. I wish I could remember what the heck I was dreaming about.
Two nights ago, just before my alarm went off, I dreamed that I was interviewing Jerry Nelson. I asked him what it was like to work with Jim Henson. He said, "Working with Jim was always exciting. Each day we would make new discoveries, but we would also hope for some problems to arise, because those problems would lead us to new technological opportunities."
It was such a real dream, it was like he was talking right in my room. I had to laugh, because my life has been pretty stressful lately, and maybe this was my mind's way of telling me to turn my problems into opportunities!
Glad to hear it!
I dreampt I was listening in to the room in which they were filming the new SS christmas special. they had no idea I was there; I saw Susan and writers and producers and everything! Some discussed the name of the special. They were considering calling it something else. I was thinking, Oh, cool! I have to upload all this to Muppet Wiki! They probably don't have this new information! They found me, and I came inside and talked with some others. Then I heard a voice, which sounded a lot like Randy's, and it was Dave Goelz! I ran over there, hugged him, and couldn't stop shouting, "Oh my gorge!" His kids were there, all little, I talked to them a bit--it was So amazing!
I had a dream about Hugga Wugga last night! I was watching the TMS Season One DVD (I think.....) with a friend. The scene we were watching had something to do with a band or MTV (I don't know), and I'm thinking 'Is this the episode with Hugga Wugga?' and then the band or MTV skit ends, and on come Hugga Wugga! But Hugga has a big plywood cutout for a face. He still has the pipe-like snout, but the cutout has yellow eyes with red pupils! I soon realize that Hugga Wugga isn't so scary after all . When I woke up, that was a big lie...
That does sound like something Jerry Nelson Would've Said!
So I had a weird dream where the fraggles were reenacting The Thief and the Cobbler. O_O Boober was Tack, Mokey was the princess, Wembley was the thief (I don't know why XP), Junior Gorg was King Nod, and Convincing John was Zig Zag.
It was pretty much the same plot as the movie but there was a lot of fourth-walling. Wembley kept forgetting that the thief was a mute character which prompted Junior to tell him to shut up. Junior also kept calling Convincing John Jafar/Jafaw.
Meanwhile CJ was mostly bitter throughout the reenactment because the Fragglettes had fallen for Cantus and they were often seen hanging all over the minstrel in the background. Cantus was indifferent to their squeeing and the Fragglettes were similar to the blonde triplets in Beauty and the Beast. XD The dream didn't really come to a conclusion. I just sort of woke up. =P
Last night I dreamt again what I'm always dreaming: I was Zoot's girlfriend...
I've never actually seen The Thief and the Cobbler. I know it had probably one of the longest Development Hells of any feature, though. What you're describing sounds pretty awesome. Especially Wembley!
LOL! Of course! Who wouldn't fall instantly in love with Cantus? Poor CJ!
Don't you hate that?
Awww, it's one of my fave movies. I like The Princess and the Cobbler version, even if the songs are a little corny but the Arabian Knight one is horrible. X.x And Wembley looked so cute/huggly as the thief. X3
*dead* CJ was like: >_> How dare youuu...? Those are my groupies!
Cantus's expression was hilarious too. While the Fragglettes were le-swooning over him, he was just like: = l Hmm...
Totally. X_X It always happens during particularly memorable and hilarious dreams too. Alas, I had no fraggle or muppet dreams tonight. ._.
LOL! Wasn't that effectively Jim's catchphrase?
Last night, I had a dream, it wasn't primarily focused on the Muppets but it had a reference inside it that I definetely want to share. So I'm in Florida with my friend, and we're gonna a go to Disney World, but for some reason we don't. Anyway, we go to this theatre to watch an award show and there are these giant windows for walls. And when I look outside I see the Cinderella Castle... and a billboard promoting the Muppets! There were Muppets on the billboard and they looked mostly like they did from Season One of the Muppet Show, and the only writing there was was the Muppet Show logo. When I saw that in my dream I was so happy! It was cool to see that my dream.
Last night I dreamt I saw a deleted scene from The Muppet Movie, in which Sweetums catches up with the Muppets after Kermit's showdown with Doc Hopper. The other characters are getting on the bus to go to Hollywood, Sweetums shows up and is both excited to have caught up and exhausted from all that running, to the point that the bus leaves before he realises it, being left behind once again.
I also dreamt that I saw a promo for the upcoming video "Elmo's Travel Games and Songs", which showed some big surprise classic clip. And now I can't remember what the surprise is (I wonder if I could be psychic on this).
I dreamed that someone was working a Fozzie Muppet in a produce aisle of a supermarket. He looked like the version from the first season of the Muppet Show. It was crowded, so all I could see of the puppeteer was one arm, but he sounded like Frank Oz. When I spoke to Fozzie and he answered, he suddenly looked like a later version of himself.
Last night I dreamt of seeing a rather interesting appearance by the Muppets on a TV special from somewhere between 1977-78. I can't remember much of this special except that it had nearly every Muppet from both Sesame Street and The Muppet Show on there, and there was some female singer. The scene, set backstage in a theater (not the Muppet Theater), was a musical number that was a salute to some of the greatest musicals, and one by one, a Muppet would come in to assist said singer, but of course this being the Muppets, chaos and silliness were bound to erupt at any and every moment.
The Muppets I remembered seeing are as follows:
Ernie (playing a piano) and Bert (playing a ukulele)
Some Anything Muppet kids
Rowlf and assorted Muppet dogs
Cookie Monster, Luncheon Counter Monster, Herry, Frazzle, the green/yellow beaked monster (SS), Harvey Monster, Grey Monster (SS), and Harvey Monster all running amok; LCM nibbling on a piece of film reel, some explosions here and there, munching cookie noises, etc.
Beaker entangled by Snerfs
Swedish Chef dancing in Carmen Miranda wardrobe with bananas
Animal chasing a crocodile, and later on, being chased by the crocodile. Floyd, Zoot and Janice looking on in confusion.
The birds from the "For the Birds" sketch
Fozzie dancing in a hat and cane and Scooter telling him to watch out for the banana peel, which Fozzie slips on.
Male Whatnot Mexican hat dancers dancing to "America" from West Side Story and crashing into scenery
Camera then pans to a huge prop garbage can (with a lid like the one you'd see on trashcans in Britain) in which Oscar, wearing a viking helmet, emerges out of, attempting to sing an opera. But then Oscar forgets his lines and screws up, and goes back inside the can.
A few seconds later, Gorgon Heap slowly rises up from behind the trashcan, wearing a bowtie, and sings a (very) long note causing him to lose his breath that he faints, dropping his head on top of the lid in exhaustion. He then tells everyone to "cue the next number" and collapses onto the floor.
Then it cuts to Kermit and Piggy in the mountains, a la "The Sound of Music"
...at which point I awoke in reality and snapped out of my dream. All I can say is that it was kind of neat seeing this.
Last night I dreamt... wait a second. I'm too shamefull about it to tell. Maybe tomorrow.
Nice dream. I could definetely see that having been made. Or being written as a fanfic here on the forums. Either way, it just sounds really good!
Wow...the musical tribute sounds fantastic!
I know I've been dreaming of Newsie lately but I can't recall anything upon waking except him smiling at me.
That sounds like an awesome dream! I can see them doing something like that! I love musicals myself, in fact, the Muppets are one of the reasons I got into musical theater.
