    Sweet job Jamie! Especially since TMTM is my fave Muppet film ever. And its great to see Pepe in there(Maybe, JHC will pull a Lucas and digitally revision history slip Pepe into TMTM and other pre 96 efforts^_^ j/k)

    Indeed, 2003 is shaping up to be the year of the comeback finally for the Muppets! Put on your crash helmet, the future is looking great!

    Wow thats quite a menu - i've just got home Jamie and it's 4am in the morning here in 2003 so as you can imagine - my vision is slightly blurry right now, but if that aint the best darn new year graphic i've ever seen then i'll eat a hamster whole ! Well done and on behalf of i'm sure everyone, thanks a lot for all your hard work on these menus, they've all been nothing short of spectacular. Now go and book yourself into flash menu design addicts anonymous ! :D

    Spectaular Jamie! you really give all the muppet fans what they want to see! Animal, Janice and Rizzo look great in those TMTM suits, Piggy also looks great with her hair down like that then the curly hair. As always it's great to see Rowlf!

    2002 was the real come back for the muppets with everything that has happend so far, let's hope 2003 will be filled with more Muppet stuff!!

    Thanks Crazy Harry! lol That"s funny!

    I was SICK of that all dogs go to heaven one! I think everyone else was here sick of it too, it probaly didn't make much sense to people for it to be funny anyways, this one is a funny muppet one and i think that being a new year and all i needed a new sig. I'm not 100% that that quote is correct, but it's about the same way its said in the game, i think i'll go back to the game to be sure, i play MRM a lot more then MMA.

    Zack)Rowlf the, was this game like the first time pepe and robin ever talked to each other? Dog.

    More amazing visual trickery from Jamie. And it's the first Muppets Take Manhattan menu! Woo-hoo! If this one had been part of the menus contest, it would have won my vote hands down!

    I especially like the addition of Pepe on the Times Square ball in the middle. I think this is the George Lucas Special Edition of TMTM with added characters! :D

    Happy new year, all!

    Had to have Pepe in it, and it was really great restyling Miss Piggy's hair. I haven't heard anyone object to losing that terrible perm (the worst period for Miss Piggy IMHO).

    There was much more I wanted to add, but there was no time. The concept was sketched out months ago (like most of the menus), but was rushed in the final stage. Redressing the characters was relatively easy - It was the source images of the actual Manhattan Melodies that needed the most work.

    I'm just glad that so many (11) characters were included. Wish there could have been more. We also wanted a countdown clock. There's always next year. All of the menus that will be used again will be altered a bit to make them more interesting.

    The next menu will commemorate Muppet Central's 5th anniversary later this month. I'm pleased about the positive response. It's a lot of fun making these, but also a lot of work. :)

    waddya mean...that kinda hair was popular, although maybe not for a pig! :p

    Ick! Yeah, that was a bad 80s trend. The ugly big hair perm! I lived in Houston at the time - the hair was even bigger. Be afraid - be very afraid!

    To me, her classic straight hair with a bit of curl in it has transcended the test of time. I hated that ugly perm the first time I saw it. Someone call the fashion police. And she kept it for a few years after the film.
