    Hi MC Forum,

    I'm writing to ask if any UK members are planning to tape "Me and My Monsters" on CBBC? I am having problems with my DVD recorder and I don't think I will be able to tape it. Is there any chance that anyone can do me a copy of the series please? Please let me know ASAP.

    Hi, i will try my best to get all episodes but i missed today and yesterdays. I'm sure it will all be repeated though seeing as they are doing a daily run of the first series (in incorrect order it seems).

    I really love the show. Produced by ex-Henson people, lovely puppets made by Henson, puppeteered by great Henson connected people - its probably one of the best ever non Muppet/Fraggle Henson shows, even though technically it isn't one lol

    Who are the puppeteers in this? I would love to know who performs Haggis, Norman and Fiend. They are beautiful puppets. Well done, Henson!

    Fiend - Heath McIvor and Alice Osborne
    Haggis - Don Austen and Sean Masterson
    Norman - Mathew Mcoy and Fiona Gentle

    Puppets built by Niki Lyons, Jamie Campbell and Dan Carlilse at Henson

    Muppety people producing are Pete Coogan & Martin G Baker (who have now formed Baker Coogan productions), and Lisa Henson & Halle Stanford (at Henson itself)

    Most of the puppeteers worked on Farscape. Other than Don Austen who has worked on Muppets, Hoobs and loads of other British stuff.

    Cool website for it at - http://www.meandmymonsters.tv

    Hi Luke, thank you for your very kind offer, but I think I'm sorted as someone has already offered to record it for me. I hope it goes to plan! May I come back to you if I need to?

    I'm glad you love the show, I have only seen the first episode on the iplayer and I enjoyed it too. The puppets are really great and very colourful. Haggis is one of my fav. monsters, Don Austen has done a really good job.

    Hi Danny

    Yes of course, come back to me anytime.

    I love Haggis too, have always enjoyed Don Austen characters. I'm loving Fiend too, great personality. I hope in time there is some merchanside.

    *Sigh* You guys get all the interesting TV shows (in my opinion, at least).

    Any news as to whether or not it will ever get aired over here? :confused:

    This all sounds very positive!

    Im pleased to say that I agree with all the above. I am also really enjoying the show! I got it on series link on SKY.

    My fave has to be Fiend, what a totally amazing looking puppet, and a great new idea having performers hands in his feet and rods for the arms.

    I wonder if there will be any merchandise for this show? I want plushes!

    Great Work

    I would loveeeeeeeee Action Figures or PVC's.

    I also have love for Norman. Yeah he just brings and beeps and wheeee's but he's crazy, random and looks so cool.

    LMAO today at the episode this morning when Haggis had "human dad thingy persons" phone and asked "Whats Delety All?" haha

    Holy early 90's Batman! This looks like a sitcom Henson woulda done in 93-94 for ABC that woulda lasted a few months in march or april.
    (wait, didnt they do something just like this, but with aliens?)

    My first thoughts were "wow, this is the first time Creature Shop has made characters that look like Muppets"
    and "whoah, is that a red Thog?"

    I definitely would love to see more. Is there anywhere online full episodes are?

    I LOVED Mopatop and made sure and got most the merchandise they made for it(Hoobs I was so-so on) So I definitely second the merchandise wish!

    Sadly, given ignorant Americans disliking of British accents, I doubt this will air on US television.

    It's a UK/New Zealand co-production so actually a lot of the accents are kinda New Zealand with the main character and the mum being British. It's the one thing about the show I find a little strange, but i understand why.

    Yeah it is that kinda sitcom style I could imagine Henson doing years back, I really enjoyed all the episodes and the puppets. I have them all on DVD too, if you want them let me know.

    Oh I love New Zealand accents. I mean Flight of the Conchords/Eagle Vs Shark, enough said. I think maybe the backstory is maybe the mother met the father while vacationing or working in New Zealand? I'd love to see full episodes, I really liked the clips I saw online. I swear though, that's Thog's cousin! :3
