    I've only had a couple. Mostly about Sweetums. I think Dream MeepBorkMeep has a crush on him. But I got to play him in Muppetfest in one of the dreams, and that was neat.

    But I also had a dream that I spilled some paint, it split open making a rip in the space time continuum thingy, I jumped in, I was back in time but I didn't know when, and I was driving around trying to figure it out, and then suddenly I saw a bunch of Muppets near a graveyard, and I figure out it's May of 1990. So I slam on the brakes and rush out just in time to see Kermit and Jim Henson dance off into the distance and disappear. I had this exact dream about the Blues Brothers too. Weird.

    Y'all have rully intersting dreams.

    I have had all kinds of dreams about Muppets. Here is a listing of some:

    Back when I was in the third grade (1992), I dreamed that I was watching a scene with Dr. Teeth telling Zoot and Lips to blow their horns, and they blew on command.

    Around a similar time, maybe before the above-mentioned dream, I dreamt that I was looking at a page in a Muppets Take Manhattan storybook that I had at the time (I believe it was the book and record (or tape) version), and looking at the page with the cast singing Together Again, for some reason my mom was saying "I don't know what that is", not sure if it was supposed to be a line or a saying, and then sometime later, in a different dream, I was watching a TV preview for the movie, and when the commercial showed a clip from Together Again, the announcer was saying, "...and I don't know what that is".

    In 1996, aroudn the time that I leanred what Lips' name was, I dreamed that I had an action figure of Lips, which came with a small trumpet that actually made a trumpet sound. There were other Muppet action figures in my dream, but I mostly remember them being Electric Mayhem members. The Lips figure in my dream was only slightly smaller than the one that was produced.

    I had a dream last night that The Muppets: A Celebration of Thirty Years was being rebroadcast on network television, but it was on ABC, and I was actually at the shooting location, amost as if the production date was beign rerun and I was there. I saw the muppets, but not the performers, though after it was over, I was able to go to a car that was to load the Sesame Street Muppets back to the workshop. I saw that the full-body Sesame Street muppets who were in the special were being put in a trunk. In this dream, I was told that Carol Spinney required help getting the Big Bird suit off (he couldn't get it off by himself). Oddly enough, though I saw Bruno there in person, I didn't see him get put in the trunk, just Big Bird, the dodos, and Miss Finch. It seems similar to the actual special, beign that (in real life, not the dream) I only recall seeing Bruno in two shots in the special (in the crowd during the first shot of the audience, and in a close-up shot of the audience during the closing number). Another weird thing was that the car that was shipping back the Sesame Street Muppets was a regular, small car, which I don't think a few full-body costumes could fit in the trunk of, and all of teh Sesame Street Muppets had to be in that one tiny car (the car looked like the Vista Cruiser from That '70s Show).

    I'll list more dreams later.

    Relax, they're all clean. Nothing I can't discuss in polite company, but the second one makes me blush, for reasons which are explained below.

    The first dream: fairly straightforward; it involved the two of us taking a long walk through Central Park, flying kites and talking about life.

    Now, this one I haven't shared with anyone...up until now. I'm standing there, face-to-face with the man, and I'm thanking him for being such a skilled Muppeteer and number one comedian...and the man repays me by giving me a kiss on the top of my head.

    I fear that Renee, MBM and the other female members of RHLC are going to be insanely jealous now.

    (laughs) Oh, come on. A mousy little nerd like me? With a boyfriend? Don't be absurd (face turns a color somewhere between magenta and radish red). It's hot in here. Did someone turn off the A/C or something?

    1. I dreamed that I looked in my closet one day and had Floyd style clothes

    2. I dreamed that I was on a deserted island with Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy, Scooter, and Gonzo...with, what? no electric mayhem?

    3. I dreamed that I dreamed about finding a Floyd puppet in my closet. (Yes, you read that correctly, I was dreaming in my dream)

    4. I dreamed that Dr teeth came to our school and sang and inveted me and some random people on stage.

    5. I dreamed the EM was advertising a new line of instruments, and they had legs too! About halfway through the dream, they went animated. (As in went from 3d to a cartoon)

    6. Occasionally, a muppet will make "a very brief cameo" in my dreams

    7. Last night I dreamed that we were watching The Sandlot 2 in school, but the class was complaining about it and everyone was begging to watch Muppets from space, and everyone was shoving their copy of the DVD, in the teachers face asking to watch it, lol. That one was the most intersting of them all, hehe

    Man, your dreams sound way more interesting than mine. :sympathy: Most of my more recent dreams, if they're not anime-style clips of [Muppet-related] fanfic ideas or have One-Eyed Jack, Sidebottom, and/or Boober as a homicidal maniac or just plain ticked off, then they involve stores, not being able to afford stuff, me chasing Mike Myers/Jack Black-esque strangers that drop money galore (;) He he. *sings The Apprentice theme*), and/or... uh, something to do with school or Barnes & Noble.

    But probably the closest thing to a Muppet-related dream I had recently was one when I was watching cutscenes from a video game I made (in the dream, of course), which was very similar to Harvest Moon: Magical Melody, but you're capable of playing one of any of the townspeople, which include not only the Fraggle Five, but Convincing John, one of the Fragglettes (whom I don't know what they look like), Begoony, Tosh (whom I also don't know what she looks like), and a cuter-looking Lou Fraggle. But the funner part about this was that Blind Pew, Clueless Morgan, Spotted Dick, One-Eyed Jack, and, if my memory serves, Polly the Lobster and Mad Monty. And I added O'Brian and a couple of my own characters in attempt to add more females for the guys to marry.

    Anyways, I remember seeing a bunch of rival scenes, including the following:

    Mokey with Boober/Spotted Dick/Begoony/Blind Pew
    Red with Gobo/One-Eyed Jack/Sidebottom
    Blind Pew with virtually every girl except for Red and one of my younger characters
    Convincing John with the Fragglette

    ... And some others, I think. I believe I remembered one with Wembley and that previously mentioned "younger character". Or was it Lou? I forget. Anyways, the graphics was much like Magical Melody: 3D and with chibified characters.

    ^__^ And you most likely don't understand a single word I said. Yay, me!

    I dunno if I posted this already, but I once had a dream where I was visitting the Sesame Street set and I found out that Martin Robinson had died. And then I meet Frank Oz who tells me that Martin wanted ME to have Telly. He gave me the Telly Monster puppet. It was crazy. I woke up thinking "No, I don't want it. I'm not suppose to have it." And I was a bit teary.

    I also used to have a lot of dreams when I was little about the Count, but they were scary dreams. This is weird because I don't remember ever being afraid of The Count.

    I once had a dream that I was watching "The Power of the Dark Crystal", and the only thing I can remember really was that Jen had a son named Heerong or something like that.

    Here are some more dreams that I have had:

    *Every once in awhile, I dream of finding copies of the muppet compilation videos that were released by Playhouse Video, often I am at flea markets when I find them, sometimes I am at libraries or video stores. Rowlf's Rhapsodies is the video that I usually find in my dreams, but sometimes I find other videos. Too bad these dreams can't be real.

    *Shortly before Muppets Tonight premiered, and I think this dream was actually on the night before it's premier, I dreamed that I watched the opening, and it was similar to the muppet show opening, only there were a lot more arches, probably thousands more than in The Muppet Show opening. I can't remember very many specific characters who were there, though I do remember seeing Cookie Monster in the opening.

    *I once dreamed that I was at some kind of party that the muppets were attending. I think it was at a nightclub-type place. I remember seeing Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Pepe, and Chip there.

    *Every once in awhile I have dreams about seeing Muppetvision 3D. I haven't actually seen that since 1995.

    *I once had a dream where I was watchign an episode of The Jim Henson Hour, but the scene took place in some kind of office instead of Muppet Central. Kermit, Gonzo, Digit, and Leon were all there. I can't remember if any other characters were.

    *I also had another JHH dream, where I was watching an episode in which Digit took off his head and put it next to a computer at Muppet Central.

    Two dreams I had...

    Cool dreams, guys. I'm going to post two of mine when I get all the details remembered.

    Two dreams I had...

    I've had a few dreams where Muppets make cameo appearances, but as soon as I wake up, I usually can't remember 'em!

    But here are two I do remember.

    The first one is a dream I had about Big Bird about maybe six years ago. Okay, I had just got the book "Sesame Street Unpaved" and at the time, I was trying to find an authentic Big Bird feather for my collection. I read about how Big Bird's feathers are categorized (from best to worst) in boxes labeled "A" through "E" when they build the puppet. The book says "Most D and E feathers are thrown away."

    Then I fell asleep and had a dream:

    I was standing outside of the Muppet Workshop. I made it there (somehow) and was ready to go in, ready to ask "May I please take a tour...and have just one extra Big Bird feather as a souvenir?"

    And before I could take another step, lo and behold, Big Bird looked out the side window on the second story. In one wing, he had a box labeled "D" and in the other wing, a box labeled "E". He turned both boxes upside down and said: "Well, I guess we won't need these!"

    Dozens and dozens of feathers fluttered down from the boxes, but as I tried to run towards them, my feet got really heavy (which is probably common in dreams) and I could barely walk. After two small steps, I watched in horror as ALL the feathers landed in the back of a garbage truck, which took off as soon as the feathers fell in.

    And then I woke up :mad: but eventually I got an authentic Big Bird feather, and that dream hasn't bothered me anymore...actually now it's pretty funny! Hee hee hee!

    The second one was also a Sesame Street related one. I'll try to describe it as best as I can:

    I was taking a walk in kind of a wooded area near a park, when I saw a bunch of trailers parked and people were unpacking stuff from trucks. There was a director's chair, people carrying cables, adjusting cameras, stuff like that.

    So I thought Cool, someone's shooting a movie on location. Anyway, I see the actors' trailer door open, and Maria steps out! The trailer (I then noticed) is next to this big oak tree with a hole in it (about at shoulder height). Maria walks up to the tree.

    One of the crew guys there says "We need another extra". They see me. "Hey, you. You wanna stand over here and look at the hole in this tree so we can get this shot and go to lunch?"

    I walk over, thinking I get to be in a clip for Sesame Street??? WOW! The crew guy has me stand next to Maria, who plops down her script and says "Okay, you just watch the tree and do what we do."

    We? I thought. I could only see Maria. But then, the director says "Everyone ready?" And before I knew it, here were Ernie and Bert on either side of me! No, I couldn't see the puppeteers. It was like one of those dreams where the characters were completely real with no puppeteer beneath them.

    "Ready!" Ernie and Bert said together. Then the hole in the tree was suddenly filled with a furry, blue, googly-eyed face. Cookie Monster was here too! But what was he doing in the tree?

    "Me ready!" said Cookie. "Me have tree costume on!" I remember wondering how did Frank Oz get inside that tree? Before I could wonder anything else, I heard the director say "Action!"

    The next thing I heard was Prairie Dawn's piano music (from the pageants) coming from behind me, playing the intro. Then, Cookie Monster began to sing a verse (along to the tune of "Oh welcome, dear viewer to our little play", etc.). As clear as a bell, I can still remember the words Cookie sang:

    "Oh, me the Cookie Monster
    And me a tree.
    All kinds of good things
    They grow right on meeee.

    Like apples and bananas
    And cherries, so sweet.
    Now enough of the song
    Now it time to...EAT!!!"

    And as Cookie sang "eat", the branches of the leaves shook like crazy and down came...not apples, bananas or cherries, but...Raisin Bran. Yes, you read that right, Raisin Bran was fluttering down from the branches and sprinkling down on Maria, Ernie, Bert and me.

    "Oh boy, Raisin Bran! Hurry up, Bert! Eat it! You'll get your fiber!" said Ernie.

    So all three of them began eating the Raisin Bran like Cookie Monster would. (Maria too!) I caught some of the Raisin Bran in my hand, gave the camera a "Oh well, when in Rome..." shrug, and did my best Cookie Monster impression with handful after handful of Raisin Bran.

    "Great! Cut! Print it!" yelled the director.

    The dream got kind of fuzzy after that, and then I woke up.

    It was one of the weirdest (and most fun) dreams I ever had. And y'know what? I'm pretty sure the director in that dream was George Lucas.:concern: Sure sounded like him.

    I know what'll happen if I have that dream again. Lucas will be creating a prequel, shooting and animating the Raisin Bran digitally.

    Lucas commentary: "We just didn't have the budget back then for good special effects. Now with digital technology, we can animate more flakes into the scene, accentuate the raisins so you can actually see them bounce off of Bert's head..."

    I had a dream a few nights ago about Fraggle Rock; it involved Gobo coming face-to-face with Doc in the workshop for the first time.

    Sorry, Skye, no new RH-related dreams lately. I'll keep you posted, though.

    Most recently, my dreams have been close to reality ones, with a hint of time traveling. Ever since I read someone got to meet Jim Henson at Walt Disney World on a bench, I had dreams about doing the same thing. I came from the future and found him sitting on the same bench. I proceed to tell him how much of an influence he's been to me and that the world would miss him so much if he were no longer around. Before he could question what I was talking about, I would show him a magazine with him on the cover showing a tribute to his life. That would never happen, of course, but I've always dreamed of things happening differently and I was able to make the change. Like to tell someone, like Jim, that the minute he's starting to feel ill, to go see a doctor right away. I would probably get an odd look and my words would have no effect, but at least I was there to say it, to let him be aware that he's such a beloved and irreplaceable person.

    Wow, interesting! I've had a few muppet dreams, but not many. I once drempt that I met Jim. It is very fuzzy, and it was really only a scene. I guess I was cooking, because I was standing beside a stove in a kitchen. Jim and I were talking, but I can not think about what. Eh, couldn't have been that important then.
    The other dream I can remember, I posted in General Discussion, and did not involve the muppets or their people directly. Even though there was much more, and more depth to it than this, I still injoy telling people that I dreamed I was beat up by Richard Hunt's father!
    Morgan Clueless, you say your dreams are boring, but yet I'm intreagued by the idea of Boober and Sidebottum being Homasidal maniacs! Would you mind please elaberating?
    And Brian, would you mind sharing some of the nightmares you had of the Count?

    Now that I think of it, I've also had several dreams about MC in some way!

    Oh that's so weird! Yesterday, I won a Gonzo from one of those! However on this little go-cart kiddie ride, when everyone was throwing other people's stuff out, then waiting for them to get it and driving away with them left behind so they'd have to do one of those "Indiana Jones" numbers and jump back in, Gonzo was thrown off a bridge. Phht. :concern:
  20. Fragglemuppet

    Fragglemuppet Well-Known Member

    Yeah John, I saw that skit, interesting. What I forgot to mention was that I had that dream before I ever saw any of his interviews on DVD's. I therefore had no idea what his voice sounded. I wish I could remember now what it sounded like in my dream, but of course my mind now wants to replace it with the real voice. I know it was rather high though, even moreso than his real voice.
    The reason I brought this up, was because I wanted to point out how the mind can create things, to make up for what it doesn't know. When we are awake, I think we can sort of prevent this from happening by saying, "no, thisI can't assume this". When we are asleep though, we loose that sensor. Any oppinions on this?
    No dreams last night; will keep you posted.
