    I mean, nobody wanted to watch Muppet Thought of the Week until we heard there was going to be a new Kermit performer.

    I just had another weird Muppet-related dream last night. You ever have those dreams where you find or buy Muppet merchandise you don't own in real life, and then wake up to find that you didn't really find or buy them? This is kind of like one of those dreams.

    Anyway, in the dream, my family and I had just moved into a new house. I - being the curious one that I am - decided to walk around and explore the new house. This is where it gets weird - I opened up the closet in the house, and it ended up being some sort of portal that goes to my old house. I stepped through, and the portal not only took me back to my old house, but it also took me back in time to when I was younger.

    Younger me walked through my old house (because it was the past, my family and I were still living there) and went in the basement, where I found a bunch of Muppet plushies that apparently were mine when I was younger. The plushies were: a Kermit, a Miss Piggy, a Gonzo, 3 different Fozzies, a Rizzo, a Pepe, and a HUGE Camilla. (Seriously. The Camilla plush was way bigger than the other plushies.)

    I decided to bring them all upstairs so I could bring them through the closet portal and into the new house. But just as I was gonna go through the portal, I woke up. :mad:

    Don't you just hate it when you wake up just when something interesting is gonna happen in your dream?

    Muppet gem, I won't lie... That dream kind of reminds me of Coraline, in a way. :D

    Anyway, last night I had a dream I was playing Hitman..... In real life. I took the role of agent 47, trying to be as stealthy as possible killing baddies with my fiber wire.

    At one point, my Kermit the Frog doll came to life and we talked. I asked him what he thinks about Sesame Street turning 50 in 2 years. While he was talking, I ended up choking him with my fire wire, killing him in the process with one of his feet cut off (for whatever reason).

    I INSTANTLY woke up and was relieved for it to be a dream.

    Here's another dream I recall having.

    I was watching a comparison Sesame Street tape, and there came on a song about an Orange-Gold Anything Muppet singing about how much he loves his job. He has an appearance similar to the newsman from the Muppet News Flash skits on The Muppet Show. I think the guy was working at a bank but I don't remember exactly. I do recall he was voiced by Jim, though.

    I also recall Mel Gibson, Telly and the Duck from the Wide, Wide World of the World slot on another segment but instead they were in front of a solid black background, kind of like the skits with Baby Tooth and the Funky Funk skits.

    Recently I dreamt that I saw footage of Herry Monster, being performed by a new performer, and his new performer actually resembled Jerry Nelson in his later years, only his hair and beard were a lot longer (I think his beard touched the floor). And the Herry Monster puppet was REALLY LONG before the "waist". The top half, the part we normally see on TV, was the same, but the fur underneath reached the ground as well, it's almost as if the performer could fit most of his body instead despite it not being a full-body puppet. And it didn't have legs, so all that extra fur wasn't really necessary.

    Who knows, maybe it's Peter Linz in the future.

    It's funny, I've had dreams where I feel like they predict the future...... Maybe this could be an instance. :search:

    I don't know if you want to call this dream Muppet related essentially.... But a very long time ago (probably like a year before I knew about YouTube and classic Sesame clips), I had a dream of a live action version of "D Duah Duah" (or "Be my D", whichever you prefer) that had a Looney Mexican guy as Bushman Bill and a trio of female black singers (essentially like the Pointer sisters) as Didi O'Day and the Dew Drops (which I still think they should have just been called The Dew Drops cause we never found out which one is Didi O'Day), but anyway, song went as normal, but then the music stops and it shows a close up of one of the "D's" on the gold curtain and pans away as normal, but only this time it had the camera pausing constantly as it panned away, each time with the singers just saying "D" over and over until it eventually transitioned into Bushman Bill's studio and went as normal.

    Here's a weird one I had last night....

    I went to Sesame Street's YouTube channel to see what they uploaded for a Throwback Thursday clip, and it was "That's how the Numbers Go" from "123 Count with Me", but for some odd reason, it was labeled as a 2000's clip.

    But here's where it gets weirder..... The description of the video said "U guys suk. Stop sending us video requests cuz we post what we want. Hope u guyz r happy now" or something weird like that. And frankly I wouldn't even blame the Workshop for getting salty like that considering they probably get so many video demands from ungrateful fans.

    It was nearing 2000's, but Sesame Workshop DOES mislabel some videos.

    I'm guessing it's probably some unpaid intern that does it.

    I had one last night. I was watching an episode of the animated "Fraggle Rock," and in it, Wembley wound up in Doc's workshop, knocked himself out, and was discovered by Doc. I don't remember what happened after that, though.

    Had one of Kermit while he was still voiced by Steve Whitmire.

    He was just flipping out over EVERYTHING. Probably cause of the whole controversy that's happened this year.

    Here's a weird one, I was watching an episode of what appeared to be Sam and Friends. it had 3 Rooster like puppets (Pretty realistic at that) and they were Lip-Synching to Rock it to me (The song that was used on the Ed Sullivan Show) It was weird because for one thing that song wasn't even released on albums (Not quite sure how Jim got a hold of it plus the Bruthers didn't even start until the mid 60's) anyway there was a lady making a sandwich talking about Esskay meats while Kermit was standing next to her.

    I had a dream this morning where I was watching The Best of Ernie and Bert, but it was like a completely altered version -- Zoe and Baby Natasha were in the framing story, and for some reason, somewhere in the middle the group INXS appeared singing a song, and immediately afterwards was this film/song about syncopation featuring marching bands and kids playing percussion.

    Speaking of INXS though, it would've interesting to see what they would have done on Sesame Street...

    Here's a dream I actually remember having:

    This one was REALLY weird, but um.... Basically it was a Little Jerry and the Monotones dream with the characters in their "Grover giving a lecture on the word 'exit' skit." The background was the same color behind the doors to the exit sign with some black fading in from the top. But what was weird was the group was singing some sort of creepy spiritual song with bones and skulls on the side and steam consistently coming in and blowing across the screen. Every time that happens, black oil would come and ooze along the background covering half the back and then it disappears. Eventually it ended with the screen being covered in black oil. This was 2 years ago.

    I had a dream last night I was watching the Muppet Show, and Sweetums actually ended up dropping the f bomb. Everything went silent afterwards.

    Before comic Con weekend, I had a vision in my head after...well, going to space with friends, of Bip Bippadotta dressed up as a geenie (like the look alike from the Cookie Monster skit), of him running around singing "Swords, swords, swords...." In the style of the Mario theme against a solid white backdrop (the same one as "Fat Cat.")

    I've had a BUNCH of recurring dreams of Muppet and Henson exhibitions everywhere this year. In every single one, I am let in to see how ''progress'' is going.

    Early 2017 - A dream about the beginning of the making of an exhibition, I remember seeing Cookie Monster and a few other characters (not covered with glass) in front of a black curtain on a wall behind some stairs. It was dark, empty, and quiet.

    Mid-2017 - I was let into another exhibition where construction was going on, and I remember there being a LOT of caution tape and a little pathway/bridge over the entrance (which was blocked) and into the exhibit. I remember seeing Professor Hastings being displayed somewhere... Also, there was this big construction worker guy who asked me how it looked.

    A few nights ago - Some kind of Kermit theme park in the making.

    Last night - So, I was let into an exhibition the day before it opened, and it was a bunch of things clustered together in one crimson-walled room with a white floor. I took A LOT of videos and pictures of what was around there, and I remember looking at a huge human sized Ideal Toys Rowlf plush with a bow on its shoulder, being said it was a prop on The Jimmy Dean Show. Then when I went back to take more pictures, an employee told me not to because they don't want to reveal to other people how it looks, although I already filmed the whole place. Another thing, I saw an old newspaper article up close, with half a Sam and Friends cast photo on it, and it said someone in the behind the scenes crew who I apparently recognized was fired. The paper had browned and no glass was over it. I was like ''Ohmygosh!'' and took a picture. Then I woke up (in real life) in my TV room with my dog laying next to me, asleep, while the TV was playing one of those early morning hour-long infomercials. It was 5:24 AM.


    Wow, that last one was really specific.
