    Oh yeah, I recall that. I think all they really did was just block the videos, not take them down.

    Since Photobucket has screwed everybody over and image links have been broken in this thread, I've been in the process of migrating the stuff in my bucket from the past twelve years (some 800+ random pics) to a different service, so since MC doens't allow for people to go back and edit older posts, here's new links for previous pics:

    Wow, looks awesome! :) I like all of the little details like the street signs, the ads in the window of Hooper's Store, and the magazine display stand.

    Nice! The tower of blocks you made - what kind were those? They look like the kind you'd find in your elementary school and stack them into a sword.

    I got them in a little pack, but I can't remember if I got them at Hobby Lobby or Jo-Ann, or even in the craft department at Walmart. Either way, I imagine Big Bird and Elmo were trying to build a block tower that would touch the sky. ;)

    I just now realized the 3D printer I mentioned previous never did get back in touch with me, and it's been months.

    The snow and leaves representing winter and fall look nice as well.

    Suggestion, but have you ever tried recreating the around the corner sets?

    Nah, I was never a fan of ATC.

    60's-80's fan more, I presume?

    Well, I also like the late 90s and into the late 2000s.

    But for my own, personal preference, if there are specific eras of SST I'm the most fond of, I would say from the mid 80s to early 90s, and Seasons 30-38 (except for 35 and 37).

    Makes sense. Also, I remember when I was a kid, I always wanted to be inside the furry arms hotel. :( Even if it could only fit Muppets. :p the playground looked like alot of fun as well.

    The Furry Arms Hotel may have been scaled to Muppets and Muppet animals, but Gordon and Susan did spend a weekend there once.

    I can't remember who, specifically, but I remember an insert involving a celebrity staying at the Furry Arms, being cramped inside his room, and even having the hotel staff sing a lullaby to him, which he found strangely soothing.

    Dunno who that would be, you'd have to search the Muppet Wiki for "Furry Arms Hotel" most probably to find your answer though. :search:

    That just sounds hilarious. :D and I saw the street scenes on YouTube via @hooperfan. I loved how Gordon and Susan had to scrunch their ways through the entrance.

    The usually informative Muppet Wiki has no info on this inquiry.

    I just watched the Tim Robins clip for the first time (cause I don't pay attention to every single Street scene uploaded), and I won't lie, seeing Tim pretty much dominate the size of that room made me think of that 1950's horror movie The Amazing Colossal Man. :D (which I originally saw on Mystery Science Theater 3000).
