    i love that movie, but that is annoying. i hate it when movies/shows dont think ahead or change things that they already made a whole episode about. but whatever

    Seriously, and we thought the Muppets had no canon! ;)

    Lol, brilliant, we don't even have to explain what we're talking about! :insatiable:

    :) "Gee, I wish I were you people seeing this for the first time."

    "What you mean 'you people'?"

    Yeah Kermit's oddly fond of labeling people like that isn't it? Hehe

    That's interesting (No pun intended). I wonder if that was in the writing, or if it's more of an on the spot thing Jim Henson threw in in both occasions as just a Kermit specific way of speaking?

    Oh yeah I just think it's funny little expression to show his exasperation. (Btw, that's one scene where I really wish we could have watched the puppeteers underneath!) :)

    Baby Gonzo Well-Known Member

    I agree!

    I want to see all the puppeteers bump into each other during the monster stampede. :insatiable: I guess they had fun with it.

    Oh man, THAT scene. Even as a kid I was like "... are you serious?" XD But Dark Heart was rather handsome, or at least I thought so at the time, so he sort of got away with it ;)

    Dark Heart was pretty interesting and the movie itself wasn't horrible... but that scene is really ridiculous. :coy: It's the whole awkward character/audience interaction that really gets me. Care Bears is not Dora or Blues Clues and it shouldn't be. (Even if the movie did come over a decade before those shows.)

    Well you know, the scene is practically begging for parody, Mystery Science Theater style, hehe.

    But yeah Dark Heart was actually a rather intriguing character; that's one thing I like about Care Bears, they weren't afraid to say things like, "Good or bad, you're still a person."

    Ok off topic, hehe.

    ^ Dark Heart wasn't even that bad compared to the first movie - that one had some very interesting characters (as far as I remember). Talk about DARK! Years later I can still hear that book saying "... niccoolauuusss ... " *shudder* And by the way, even if I never clapped or said "I care!" how would they even know? XD

    Anyway, if the "Gee..." line bothers you, just ignore it :) I don't even really think about it.

    Oh yes, and quite an earily realisitic scenario. A young boy who's teased and shunned by the world takes out his revenge. And in the end he's saved when other kids let him know they understand.

    They're so afraid to teach real lessons in kids movies now. They're not doing kids any favors.

    Oh they're the Care Bears...they know.... :o

    I thought it wasn't a good line because if we liked it, (which we did) we'd watch it again, and the cute little joke would be ruined.

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Yeah, although now (a few years after posting this thread originally) I kinda do get the idea...It makes us FEEL that we are seeing it again for the first time, even if we've seen it a million (I haven't seen it a million.)

    This thread is the first time that I've ever realized that people might have problems with The Great Muppet Caper.

    That's like finding out the Tooth Fairy isn't real.

    And this is why I miss being a kid...TV was so much better back then. Now it's...well...CRAP! :boo::boo:

    It's just one line, guys. And it's endearing, even if you've seen it fifty thousand benzillion times. I don't get how one joke ruins the whole world.

    Nope doesn't bother me...although I wish I had been born when it came out but sadly I wasn't...even The Muppets Take Manhattan I was only a year old when it came out. I only was able to see the movies on tv unfortunately. The Muppets has been the only movie I've seen on the BIG SCREEN.

    Yeah I feel like this is knit-picking myself...the muppets are known for breaking the fourth wall why is one line any different?
  20. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Because its a time specific wall breakage that should work just the first time.
