    I love Muppet Central, but there is a growing problem here that needs to be fixed! No one is talking about the Muppets!!! The whole meaning of the forums and no one talks about the classic Muppet Show Muppets anymore.
    Now I know that they dont have a movie or show currently out right now but that's never stoped us before. So come on Muppet fans Let's talk about the Muppets!

    Okay then, what would be the best Muppet stuff to watch to celebrate Steve and Jim's birthday?

    Or as I call it 'Kermit Day' :)

    Oh, holy spit! How could I forget that's this week?!? What kind of a Muppet fan am I?! :o

    And I think "Kermit Day" should be an official holiday amongst the internet Muppet fan community.

    The Muppets take Manhattan. This shows Jim and Steve working together quite a bit.

    Nice one! I just remembered the Fraggle Rock episode with a heap of Wembley and Convincing John interaction, so I might watch that as well.

    I wanna talk about Johnny fiama he's my favorite Muppet and I've always questioned why he was dropped so suddenly

    Well, i'm guessing the reason Johnny doesn't appear anymore may partly be because Brian Henson doesn't do Sal anymore. So maybe they have to find someone to do Sal.

    Plus the Johnny & Sal Puppets have become unusable as well.

    What is everyone's favorite episode of The Muppet Show?

    I do understand both them reasons but in vmx and mwoo they were both major characters

    Spike Milligan,just because he was almost as crazy as the Muupets where.

    I would like to think that Johnny could do well without Sal. Although nothing would please me more if Brian would come back. He has such energy with whomever he is working with.

    I think that's Joe said in the Google-hangout but, I honestly think it's Bill's decision what to do with Johnny.

    I agree and in the bohiemien video sal was not performed by Brian

    Well if you think about it Bill has gotten really comfertable preforming both Dr. Theeth and Rowlf. When you add those two with Pepe and the Swidish Chef Bill has a lot of characters now. So I could understand Johnny taking a back seat.

    But Bill started performing both the Swedish chef and Dr teeth after MWOO

    Yeah that plus Bill's a writer, producer, director, and also he is one of the few Muppeteers that work for Henson as well. As well he's performing Big Mean Carl, Mahna Mahna, and Bobo. I kind see why Johnny isn't as active.

    Also Bill started doing the Swedish Chef since Muppet Treasure Island.
