    Saw it. An embarrassment. Looks like someone at Henson took the People blurb a tad too seriously. Kermit making the oh-so-funny fat jokes. Piggy came off far better because ol' Al enjoyed snuggling with her.

    Whatever. *shrug*

    Saw it too. Nothing embarrassing about it. It was funny, and Kermit and Piggy both seemed very much in character. Al looked like he enjoyed playing with them.

    Eric's doing a good job with Piggy. From the Today show appearance and now this one, it looks as though he's becoming more comfortable with her character.

    Can't wait for the Very Merry Muppet Christmas.

    Well, it helps not to be too fussy, I suppose. ;)

    As for Eric, I've read two reviews of the special that disagree with your assessment of his performance. *shrug*

    I dunno. I thought it was pretty good. However, I will agree that Piggy is more fussy than ever, but it was still good. Also, hearing Piffy say "frig*in' cold" was pretty funny.. hee hee. ;)

    By "fussy", I was referring to Boomie, not Piggy.

    Sorry I missed Piggy's swear word. Yes, the Muppets HAVE hit a new high.

    That was sarcasm, by the way.

    I thought Kermit and Piggy would actually be in the parade in a car or something... oh well... when I was there the crowd was chanting "Kermit, Kermit!" as the balloon passed as they did with some of the other balloons, but not all of them, and he seemed to get the most chants.

    great parade

    That was a great morning! It started out with 3 commercials for the new movie, two muppet mastercard commercials, and lots of muppety goodness! The Sesame Street float and Big Bird balloon were fantastic! I loved hearing and seeing all my favorite people and puppets together! The Kermit and Piggy appearance was good too, Steve's got the voice SMACK down on it!!!! Piggy's voice was a little off, but she seemed very in character and she did do a kissy kissy which hasn't been said in a while! The kermit balloon was by far the best there (well I am pretty biased but still) and I loved the hairspray number too! I still can't figure out why people always start anything involving the muppets as "It's not easy being green" and thinking it's original...seriously look at half the articles here! :) The movie looks fantastic and did anyone else see that Fozzie was all green and dressed up as the grinch? He had a little wispy thing on his head and angry eyebrows and his fur was green! It'll be great. :) Very very cool!!!!

    I'm stoked and the appearance was great, but too brief. I feel the Muppets have been pasteurized in recent years, but with each appearance it is clear that they are back in true Muppet form!

    Did anyone catch the Chicago TARGET Parade? There was another Kermit balloon there, who was standing. It can be seen on Tough Pigs. Also, the Philadelpia Parade had a big Elmo and Dorothy Balloon.:D

    They're referring to a clip of Fozzie from the new TV Movie. That's on in about 24 hours....

    Can't wait!

    I thought the appearance was great. Short, but great. I loved the ending (Piggy chasing Kermit). Eric's Piggy rocks (he has the character down very well, and the voice is just as good as Frank's)...

    What did the balloon look like? Did it look like the famous old balloon from the 70's, or was he wearing something/in a different position/etc.?

    This has to be best day I ever had. I saw two different comericals (I could be wrong) for It's a Very Muppet Christmas Movie and the MasterCard comercial twice. The appearance by Kermit and Miss Piggy was great, especially at the end when Miss Piggy is chasing Kermit. :D It was cool that Sesame Street has a float, not to mention the Big Bird balloon. And this ends the ramblings of AbbessBryony.
    :cool: (Thank goodness I watched the whole parade. It was worth the wait. :D)
  17. It was nice to see Kermit and Piggy on the parade today.

    The new Kermit balloon was nice (and it was nice that they played the "Muppet Show Closing Theme" music while the balloon was being shown).

    It was also neat that the "Sesame Street" float included characters from some of the international versions of the show (Abelardo and Lola from "Plaza Sesamo", Moishe Oofnik from "Rechov Sumsum"/"Shalom Sesame", etc.).

    I think ALL the stuff we have been seeing is really positive, I think our fuzzy friends are on the right track again. I cant remeber seeing Kermit and Piggy like that in a LONG time. Its good that both Steve and Eic are bringing them back to the way we love em!!!

    Henson plant? What kind? Is he leafy and green or is he more like a cactus? What's his name? I think I like the idea of a Henson plant. ;)
