    For any of you folks who are New Zealanders, a special three-week event is coming to Wellington this April, with Muppet folks, screenings and a live concert (ala the Carnegie Hall show) hosted by Bret McKenzie.

    Sounds like a fun!

    I think ''Muppet History 101'' (which was removed from the website for some reason) is airing at MoMI tomorrow.

    Yes, Flight of the Conchords would be nice to see live!

    Also, except for one song, Bret McKenzie did a good job with making the soundtrack to The Muppets.

    Life's a Happy Song. I just never liked that song that much.

    Are there any videos of this or any reports? None of the Muppet sites seem to be mentioning it. This was a massive Jim Henson festival over several days with screenings, workshops, talks with puppeteers and concerts with a mixed Muppets/Sesame/Fraggle cast. Where's the coverage? Where are the Youtube videos?

    According to someone on the TP Facebook page, Piggy sang Never Before at the concert. I really wanna see it, cause I've wanted Eric to sing Never Before ever since Something So Right.

    Yeah, I've only seen a few photos and a couple of articles that don't describe much about the event. And no video either. Bah.

    There was nothing online about that PuppetPalooza panel from earlier in the year either. What's the deal, man.
