    A nice Memember made me a copy of this movie about 5-6 weeks ago, i have wanted to see this movie for some time now,

    let me say, i was NOT offened at all, and this is zack here, i thought i would have hated the movie, it is gross oh god, but it has a some sort HAPPY endding, not one of the main nice good charcters died

    the hippo, she was nice and was just driven to vlolince
    The nice little worm theater ouner
    the sweet and kind Hedgehog with a lisp;-)
    his dog/like girl friend
    the large Elephant and his chicken baby
    and well the Fox guy too.

    all the characters thatb died were either, bad, disgusting, disterbed or just randomly nameless

    when hearing about this movie on MC, it seems to be disrible like the killing and gory just happens as part of the show, it wasn't like that. Oh it was sick, but it wasn't as sick as i thought it would have been, I felt sorry for the Hippo Lady.

    it is also unfair to relate everything to the Muppets in it, Yes there is alot of it but you can not say the Lizard/frog knife thrower was ment to be like a Lew Zeland, or the Rat in a likeness to rizzo...the only thing the Rat and Rizzo have in common is that they are rat Puppets, and this rat is realy gross and more rat-like.

    it had new touches to it, it's s sick film, but there is a story to it.

    Ahhh. A convert. I still feel that it is the most offensive film ever made, but it's done with style> LOL! I liked how the elephant fessed up to his responsibilities at the end. I can't imagine any Simpsons or South Park fan being offended by this picture, but I can understand how some people don't like it. It's hard to take.

    Actually, you know what show is pretty disturbing? New Zoo Revue..... Now those are horrific looking puppets!!!!!!!!!

    For those of you who want to know (you brave lot, you) here's a link...


    May the Frog (Kermit, not Freddie) have mercy!!!!!

    I wasn't offended. Just BORED with it. It was horrible, not exciting at all.

    Well, once when the Hippo was running---that was funny. But that's the only thing.

    LOL! i don't know if you saw the whole movie Kevin, but lioved it when she went in the bakery and ate ALL the cakes!!!! LOL!!!

    I liked the peir sceen, i didn't understand it but now i've seens the insides of a whales bolwes 3 times! twice in movies ( meet the feebles and Pinoccio, and once in a video game ( kindom hearts)

    Hey you know what part was REALLY muppety! when the Hippo was singing summer of love or something like that in the garden setting and the large fan was blowing everything away then the hippo sat on the swing and the hole thing fell apart! I die laughing when i see that little yellow chicken float across the water from the wind, it has no life in it at all! It's like a stuffed animal blowing in the wind.

    I felt very sorry for the hippo, she was really hurt and then triyed to killer herself....she endened up going on a rampage at the end, but none of the main good charcters died.

    Dennis the "aardvark"? was the GROSSES part i think, and that COW!!! she was kinda funny though!

    I can't belive the movie really had a point and a plot and stuff, it seemed from the stuff i read on MC that the puppets killed other puppets as part of the feebles show but that's not true.

    I'm really not offened at all by the movie, it's weird of me to say that cause i'm not into any of the stuff displayed in the movie. I kinda think of it rather then being a spoof of the muppets, it's a spoof of real human people doing this stuff and why it should not be done.

    I think that was the point of the film.

    I think Peter Jackson was trying to show us how the rich and famous were like (a Behind the scenes thing). there were a bunch of crazy things like a walrus having his way with a cat, or a Fox singing a song about Sodomy. I think this movie should be boycotted. for those of you who want to see this movie, You'll never see the muppets the same way again. trust me......it's horrible....YOU'L HAVE NIGHTMARES FOR WEEKS!:crazy:

    Meet the Feebles is a shoestring budgeted film that is very much in bad taste. Peter Jackson directed a film called Bad Taste. Feebles was made in an experimental phase. It is a part of my cult film collection - kept faaaaar away from the Muppets. I think in some ways it's actually homage to the Muppets. You'd have to look through some very nasty stuff to see that and I don't recommend it for most Muppet fans. I believe Feebles to be the most offensive film ever made. I've seen Birth of a Nation. This is worse! But, not unlike South Park, it offends equally. ;)

    Oh, no.
    I searched on youtube what was this "Feebles" movie...
    and oh my gosh...nasal....I won't say it.

    Don't search for it (those of you are planning to satisfy your curiosity) or even have a single thought of it.


    My mother came in at the wrong time...
    I was like "Mom, this isn't what it looks like...." O_O

    Gosh...this is a mockery to the Muppets---it offended me greatly.
    Who knew puppets could be so hideous?

    :eek: Your mom walked in? Oh, dang! I have encouraged my partner not to see it. It definitely provokes a reaction. The project has some funny moments, but mostly serves to satisfy morbid curiosity of just how grotesque puppets can be. That project is my definition of over-the-line. I've only seen it a handful of times and never find myself inspired to watch it, but I'm glad to have it as a film enthusiast. :crazy:

    South Park has approached some of the bad taste aspects of the films, but somehow animation makes it cuter. Feebles is a very gritty film that is often unattractive to watch. I'm certain Jim Henson wouldn't have liked the picture, but I can't help but wonder how he would have felt about certain aspects (character concepts, art direction, photography etc) of the production. Not sure if he'd watch long enough to find out! :o

    Oh yes.
    It DOES provoke quite a reaction.
    I nearly went into a spasm! LOL!
    XD The most graphic thing since...

    since THAT!

    No asthetic whatsoever. :p

    Makes me value the Muppets much more.
    (If even possible--I'm already a raving fanatic)

    I've never seen this movie but from what I've heard about it I definitely wouldn't want to.
    Thank goodness the movie didn't spawn a spin-off series.
    Imagine a weekly series. :eek:
    It's the Feebles with our very special guest star Billy Connolly, Col Elliot, Rodney Rude and other celebrities who deal in un-family friendly sort of material. I shudder :eek:

    That would have really been degrading to our beloved Muppet Show.

    If you haven't seen it consider your self lucky. and I havn't seen so I guess I am lucky.

    I have heard about it but have never seen it and I never will!.
