    As far as i knew, JHC didn't sue over 'Meet The Feebles' - there were some similarities but nothing that broke copyright.

    Sounds like the movie gives puppetry a bad name.

    You know, on the budget they had there are a good moments and the shot composition is nice. It's challenging to compose puppet shots. I got the drift that Jackson somehow admired the Muppets and made his crude version of them as a parody/indie art film. It all ends like a Scorsese picture. Not many Feebles make it. The movie is at best a guilty pleasure and at worst a mess that doesn't quite connect to viewers except to gross-out. The puppet building is sub-standard for the most part, but so many non-Henson puppets at that time were pretty terrible and that kind of was the point in this film. I recommend this picture to very few people, half of which flat-out hate it.

    now if only these guys can be just as appropriate as the Muppets, then the movie would be worth watching.

    a variety show called "Meet The Feebles"

    Actually I read that the name of the show was "The Feeble Variety Hour."

    :boo: I gotta admit, I never saw anything like that before.

    :sleep: With any luck we'll never see anything like that again!

    (sorry I had to get that out of my system)
