    Yeah I think so, the one with the glasses. He just starts fires, all the time. O_O
    Yeah, there was a remake- well, the current one is. I remember the oldie, it was like the original Postman Pat.

    Cool! Wombats! *Imagines wombats singing* Nah, just kidding, I know who they are... XD

    Yep...his name was norman...and he scared me!

    And haha...the Wombats...my brother loathes them. I can't say I've heard enough to have a well founded opinion of them yet.

    I never knew The Secret Life of Toys was a muppets series since I still haven't seen The Christmas Toy. I always thought it was by someone else when I was little, and was some sort of sequel to The Velveteen Rabbit :3

    That's a good point, there are similarities! Certainly about the complex bond of a kid and her/his toy. And I'd definitely recommend seeing The Christmas Toy. :)

    I am a Henson fan through:

    -Muppet Babies: I remember watching it when I was younger.
    -The Muppet Show
    -Labyrinth: JERITH!
    -And other things

    Not quite sure what else makes me a fan besides the spirit of the whole thing. I just love the characters.

    My earliest Muppet memories are seeing Rock Music with The Muppets, The Great Muppet Caper, Muppets Take Manhattan a few other old Muppet videos I used to get from a video store when I was 4 years old. My folks didn't object to me watching that stuff so I became a big fan of The Muppets and all of Henson's work gradually from there.

    Oh yeah, 'Rock Music with the Muppets', I have that video! :)

    Yeah I have it too. I loved that video as a kid. May have been the first key in turning me into the big time Electric Mayhem fan I am today. I loved Dr. Teeth's outfit from that time.

    I think for me it was Sesame Street first, than Muppet Show, than Fraggle Rock. Than somewhere along the way, Muppet Babies, but I don't give it a lot of credit for why I'm a Muppet/Henson fan.

    Than my mom, I guess out of the blue, thought since I enjoyed thoes Muppet stuff, that I would like the Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, which she was totally right.

    Same. :) Those Muppet Moments videos from the 80s were really great... I miss 'um. I also have 'The Kermit & Miss Piggy Story', which is from the same series.

    Oh definitely, I found a couple of those in my video rental store awhile back. True treasures! I love how Dr. Teeth keeps thinking Beaker is always talking about himself in the Rock Music one, lol.

    I also bought Muppet Weird Stuff (hosted by Gonzo) and Children's Songs and Stories with the Muppets, hosted by Scooter, from Amazon. I provided a brief analysis of the latter in my Blog, hehe. ;)

    And not to go off topic, I'll provide my early Henson stuff shortly!

    My folks were always cool about the Muppets. They were glad the appeal of the Muppet Babies was short-lived for my taste, but I had little trouble with that either. However, my older sister always thought I was "too old" for Muppet stuff and would hide all my Kermit and Fozzie toys from me and I would always find them. My revenge was giving her kids the Muppet action figures I actually worked on many years later. Wooahahah. :o

    Ah, I was thinking that those two threads were starting to seem similar, lol.
