    Yeah... I'm with Bry on this one... Misinformed assertions, Disney doesn't have a hold on the Fraggles as part of their MHC.

    It's like when people start blaming Disney of things related to Sesame Street. The Walt Disney Company has nothing to do with Sesame Street Muppet characters. People can't separate the two (or 3) groups.

    Haven't seen it yet, but I haven't been out towards Hollywood since about a week or so ago.

    Never fails to make me laugh.

    Oh, that billboard sounds interesting, anyone got any more details )aka images?) on that?

    I drive through Hollywood on my way home from work every day. I havent seen anything but I stick to Highland or Vine so if its on a different road (which is highly likely) I wouldnt see it....

    Hmm thinking about it, maybe they were driving past Hollywood and Highland where they have headlines from the Hollywood Reporter that cycle through kinda like Times Square. Maybe it was listed up there as a scrolling thing?

    Does any one think if the movie turns out well that the Henson Exsectives might consider a new seires or reruns of the old show to be put out!

    My opinion? Things on SS would be noticably WORSE is Dis owned SS. I'm talkin' more Elmo under a cheaper puppeteer and some tie-in to Baby Einstein. HAs anyone actually seen some of it? The puppets look like freaking oven mitts with eyes sloppily glues on.

    Are all the original Muppeteers coming back?

    Yes. I hope so.

    And the 5 Fraggles should have an adventure in the Human World, then go into TRUE outer space, which the Fraggles call Outer-Outer Space.

    Well, actually... No, not "all" of the original Muppeteers from Fraggle Rock can/will be back for filming the movie.
    Jerry Nelson, we hope will be there to perform/voice Gobo and maybe Pa Gorg, though he does have pulminary health issues to worry about lately.
    Steve Whitmire should be there to perform/voice Wembley and Sprocket, and so should Dave for Boober, Kathy for Mokey and Ma Gorg, and Karen for Red.

    But remember... Jim can't or won't be there for Cantus nor Richard for Junior Gorg should the Gorgs be included in this movie. If any of those characters are included at all, they'd need to find replacement Muppeteers to fill those spots.

    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    Personally I think Rickey Boyd should try to do Junior Gorg's voice; should they include the Gorgs in the movie. He's done such a great job with Scooter so far!

    Cantus on the other hand, I'm not so sure. Possibly Steve Whitmire could do Cantus? Eh, not sure.

    I hope Uncle Traveling Matt is in it.

    Well... If they can bring in Marty Robinson from his busy SS taping schedule, then I don't see why not.
    Would make sense to have Steve perform Cantus since he's taken over Jim's characters... Though maybe Bill Barretta could do it. Although, now that I think of it, Bill would be better for Convincing John.

    Yeah, I was just about to say Bill. He does Jim's gruff voices well.

    Personally I think they should not bring back Jim's charater, there just not as good, if they wanted to bring them back they should do like a dream sequence or vision.

    Who were you thinking of Marty Robinson for?

    As for Travelling Matt, I don't see why he wouldn't be included since you have Dave Goelz there performing his other regular Boober.

    As for Junior Gorg, I would suggest David Rudman if any replacement is needed.
  19. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Uh no... Bit of misunderstanding there Bry. See, Uncle "Traveling" Matt Fraggle was Marty's main character in the Rock, and I see no worries bringing him in for the movie should the character be involved and the Muppeteer's SS production schedule allow it.
    Hope that helps clear things up.

    I'm pretty sure Traveling Matt was performed by Dave Goelz, but okay.
