    I had a couple of muppet dreams, last night, I dreamed that my friend and I were in the back area of our school. Suddenly, she pulled me to my feet and started to sing Mahna Mahna. The Swedish Chef also appears next to us and goes:
    "Bork Booork! Buboobork!"
    So here I am with a friend and chef singing Mahna Mahna(Do doo doodooo!) And before I know it, all the muppets are there singing with us. We were then asked to be in the Muppet sequel, sadly I woke up before I could say yes.:(

    My next dream, I am sitting in a white room with no walls, but a lot of light. I'm sitting at a wooden table with soft chairs. Jim comes into view and sits across from me, as usual he is smiling. He isn't old or wrinkly, he looks healthy and around mid 20's. I ask him where we are, he reply's with: A world away from your world. I talked with him for a long time, I don't remember specific topics. At the end, we say goodbye and I ask him if we will meet again. He says yes, someday. I also ask him he misses Earth and his family and friends. He told me with a bright smile on his face: I always miss them, but I have never left them alone. I've been with them every step of the way. I've always been near those who love imagination and creation. I suddenly wake up and it turns out I was crying. Whether I really met him, or it was just a dream, I really needed his words and wisdom at that time. Where ever you are Jim, God Bless you.:jim:

    I had a weird dream last night! I was watching a Muppet movie called "Kermit's Amazing Journey" from like 1984 or something.

    • Kermit and Fozzie were in what looked Muppet Central from JHH, and Kermit cued up a sketch that zoomed in from a TV monitor.
    • In the sketch there was a redesigned Hugga Wugga muppet that had opening eyelids instead of moving eyes.
    • Hugga wandered around in front of a background of flashing colored patterns.
    • Near the end of the sketch, the Mahna Mahna guy popped up! Hugga reeled back in fear, like he did with the Yellow Creature. Hugga widened his eyelids, like "What the- ?"
    • Next a black screen with "Hard" and "Soft" appeared. The "Hard" began overlapping the "Soft", with weird sound effects, then there was stock footage of some comedian. (It could've been Dave Coulier, I don't know...)
    • The sketch cut back to Hugga alone, suggesting he had defeated Mahna Mahna in some way (I guess the Hard and Soft bit's sound effects symbolized that)! The footage then zoomed back out to Kermit weirded out.
    I then decided to watch the opening of the movie which had all the Muppets gearing up for a cross-country road race in a stadium! Everyone cheered as Baby Piggy rode in on a red wagon! Gonzo was sitting up on a hill with some kid, and he kept asking, "Aren't you hungry?" The little kid replied, giggling, "No," It was so weird...

    I've sat here reading literally every page of this thread and I'm kind of disappointed that my dream isn't as weird or as cool as all the others. Seriously, I only wish I had dreams about Cookie Monster peeping at me from inside an Oak tree and commanding it to rain Raisin Bran. But funnily enough this dream (nightmare?) does also concern Cookie Monster. But not in a manner that denotes any friendliness.

    Anyhoo, some brief context. I was 5 at the time, and my mother and aunt used to take me to a harbourside complex in Sydney. It was beautiful with a variety of shops, plus restaurants and cafes as well as shops selling merchandise featuring Sydney and Australian icons. It was the ultimate tourist trap hotspot.

    Anyway, in my dream I was my typical 5-year-old self. Black dress, pageboy haircut, rosy cheeks. My mum and aunt were in their civvies too, and we entered the bookshop in the complex.
    The next thing I remember is that nobody else was dressed like us. They were all either in pyjamas or bathrobes, and they were all wearing fuzzy slippers. They were of varying ages and health statuses too, so it was a sight to see.
    All of us were in the store browsing the books when all of a sudden we heard this rumbling noise. People were rather plainly freaking out now, my dream-self could sense it, although nobody really moved or made any noise.
    Next thing I knew, the walls crumbled and in came a GIANT, HORRIFYING version of Cookie Monster, arms outstretched, pounding like a furry blue rendition of Godzilla. People were positively terrified. I distinctly remember divebombing under a random lady's bathrobe to save myself, only for her to shoot me a disapproving glance.

    I do not remember the rest of the dream, probably because I awoke before Cookie had his chance to cause proper destruction.

    And that's probably the most I remember of any Muppet-related dream I've ever had.

    I just remembered this one: I was lying in my crib and I was around 3 when it happened, so no, I am not a 14 year old sleeping in a crib. Any hoo, I see Cookie Monster above me eating this huge bowl of chocolate chip cookies. i ask him if I could have some, he keeps on munching. I ask him again, getting slightly annoyed, he just keeps on munching! Finally I yell at him so he finally looks at me and back at the bowl, burping he gives it to me. I look inside to find not even a crumb, at this point he says: Cookie Monster done now, good cookies!" I wake up crying. Thinking about it makes me fee...sad.:insatiable:

    Here are two Muppety dreams that I remember: (I'll probably think of more later)

    I don't remember how exactly this one went, but I think in it Kermit came in and sat down at a table. (Robin might have been there with him, too.) Then at some point Kermit changed into Uncle Deadly, then later Uncle Deadly turned into my favorite baseball player at the time, Jason Bay. It was one of the weirdest dreams I ever had.

    The other one was more normal, it was around the time after the Palisades Sesame Street figures were announced, and I was in a store (either Walmart or Toys R Us) and I saw them there. I was very excited to see them, but I don't think I bought any of them.

    Last night I had a dream that echoed bouncingbabyfig's. I found myself in a white room, with really comfortable furniture. (Overstuffed leather couches and such) and I felt a warm "glowy" feeling in my heart, and Jim walks in, and says, "So, you want to be a puppeteer? Ok, well, let's get started then." And he spent several hours with me teaching me how to perform. Just me and Jim, we used Kermit and Ernie. (Probably since I have been able to a spot on impression of them since I was 12.) So, I told Jim, "I know this is just a dream, and I don't want to wake up." He smiled and said, "I had a dream too. Just keep working at it, and never give up." Then we hugged, and he said, "I'll see you next time, and we will work together soon."
    I love you Jim. (My wife did tell me this morning that I kept her up all night talking...oops!:halo:)

    I had a dream about Jim Henson too, a few months ago right after the new movie came out. I was in some kind of other place. I didn't know if it were the afterlife, the future, some kind of alternate universe. I couldn't tell. There was a table on the street with antique books, and I went over to peruse it. I picked up a copy of "Jim Henson: The Works," which I've always loved. Then I looked up and Jim was standing there. He was in a yellow sweater, and he seemed like he was about forty years old or so. I was thrilled to meet him, and I wanted him to autograph my book. He was kind enough to oblige, though he seemed a little reserved and hesitant to be recognized on the street. But he stayed to talk to me for a while, and mostly just wanted to check in to see how the Muppets were doing. I told him how good the new movie was, and how the Muppets were all in such good hands. He seemed very pleased and--as others have said--very calm and gentle. It was a really simple dream, but also very vivid. One I remember much better than my usual dreams.

    I had two rather odd dreams recently, one of which happened last night.

    The first one involved a funny made-for-TV movie on the Sci-Fi channel that revolved around a group of friends (2 guys and 2 girls) who are trapped inside some evil lord's domain --- why they ended up there was beyond me, as I can barely remember it all because it flew by so quick, and it was also the climax of the movie. But I do know that they wound up there because they all did something very stupid. Anyway, as our heroes try to find their way out, they encounter several monsters, overlords, robots, and at one point, they bump into what appeared to be parodies of the "Emmet Otter" characters (weird considering that "Emmet Otter" was anything but a sci-fi)

    The second dream I had involved me at a Muppet wrap party. For what project, I have no idea. All I remember was that it involved Scooter, Fozzie and a sheep, all arguing about something.

    I agree with mo. And you are right, Bouncingbabyfig. Jim would be near those who imagine. I never met him either but from what I know about him, he seems like a person who would watch over the lovers and dreamers of the world, even after death. I hope your dream continues to inspire you. It sure inspired me!:jim:

    I had a dream that I was going to some new school, and we were having class, on the floor of what I realize now was actually my bedroom, and the teacher kept changing, but anyway, there was someone in the class whose last name I think was Eck, and he was a big superhero fan, and had a Super Grover PVC figure (I have the exact one in real life), and I became friends with him:super:

    I remember a few very random Muppet dreams I had.

    1. I remember a dream where I helped the Muppaphones plan a conspiracy against Marvin Suggs...

    2. I dreamt I had every Muppet Palisades figure, but Cookie Monster burst into my room and ate all of them.

    3. I dreamt I met Jim Henson and Richard Hunt. They gave me a Swedish Chef puppet and a Beaker puppet for me to keep.

    4. I dreamt that I was at a shopping mall, and Kermit was buying lots of cheese. When I walked over to ask him why he was buying cheese, he turned into something, I don't remember what. Scooter came in, riding a scooter, Beaker came in, riding a beaker, Bunsen came in riding a honeydew melon, and Dr. Teeth came in riding on a tooth. Then something I can't remember happened, and Mahna Mahna starting singing mahna mahna and everyone joined in.

    Very odd.

    Grrrrrr! I remember waking up from a Muppety dream and thinking, 'I can't wait to put that in the Dreams about Muppets thread.' The only problem is, I no longer remember the dream! All I know is that It had Muppets involved.

    Last night I had a dream that Caroll Spinney passed away, in a long line of well-known entertainment industry figures passing on in the past few weeks. I found out after I opened the newspaper to read it. I woke up incredibly scared and I jumped on the internet first thing to check if he was still alive. Thankfully, he is.

    I had an odd dream a couple of nights ago involving me trying to persuade a very skeptical Newsman that Muppet-themed MUFFINS were a GREAT idea.

    I blame ALL of you for this.
