    Our fourth Christmas menu of the holiday season just went on-line on Muppet Central's home page. Join many of your favorite characters in Moulin Scrooge from "It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie". Let us know what you think about our latest holiday menu designed by James Carroll.

    We'll be adding new home page menus every few days throughout the holiday season. From December 21st to December 25th, everyone will be able to vote here on the forum for their favorite Christmas menu. Whichever one is your favorite, we'll put up after Christmas until New Year's Day.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    We have a winnah!!!

    This is the best one so far---love the pop-up Robin and Janice.

    When you look up "sweet bacon" in the dictionary, you'll find this menu.

    Wunderbar!

    WE HAVE PENGUINS !!!!!!!!

    This is one truly amazing menu, not least because it contains content of a gratuitous nature. Pepe looks fantastic in his suit too- this is all very pleasing indeed Frogboy !

    oh man...this might win it's so good. Especially with the dancing Janice.
    The only down side is that it wasn't as inclusive of all Henson as the MFC one but...
    They've all been great!
     
  10. I wouldn't say "winner"---I do enjoy it, LOVE "Can-Can Janice", but it's not quite the best...

    ;)

    Still, Jamie, it is awesome!

    Glad you like this one too. Wasn't sure how Christmassy it was, but it did come from the special. I still wanted Propecia Sam somewhere! Maybe next year.

    There are 2 menus left. Both are quite different than the onew that have come before. (And there might be another penguin or two somewhere.);)

    oh my gosh this is magnificent Jamie! You have done wonders to the whole site, i'm still baffled at the muppet show ariches with changing muppet characters, by the way, have you added new charcters to it? more then a few weeks ago i saw some i haven't seen before like Crooker from KSY.

    But back to this menu, love love love the spinging windmil and light up sign! The charcters are fantastic and you always get every detail from the show! The Henson Company should just higher you on the spot!

    Why does Jamie do such awesome work on these menus? Because he can can can! WOO-HOO! What a great menu, my favorite by far! It combines two of my favorite things, Moulin Rouge and the Muppets. I especially love on the menu Robin the Green Fairy popping up.

    Some of the imagery came from Moulin Rouge, but it's been molded with set pieces from the show and mixed with some Photoshop painting.

    The screen grabs were cool, but rather crude because they were not DVD quality. Thanks to Phillip for finding them for me. Much work went into cleaning them up.

    The hardest part of these menus is taking pieces and composing them to appear like a whole. Like a backdrop that is just taken for granted or seems like it came all from one image.

    Yes, that is Scooter in the windmill. He has kind of turned into my signature character and I couldn't put Gonzo in there because he is in the foreground.

    This also marks the first time I have used a more advanced loader. The curtain doesn't rise until all the pieces have loaded. It was more of an experiment to see if members liked that better.
