Muppet Baby plush/DVD sets premiere at Target

    I don't know if this is old news or not, but I did just see a TV commercial yesterday of the Muppet Babies plushes w/ DVD. It mainly featured Miss Piggy, and the girl playing with Baby Piggy was putting way too much powder and makeup on the Piggy plush. At first I thought it was a new plush toy, 'Baby Piggy Make Up Doll' or something. But at the end they showed the other plushes briefly and said they all came with the DVD so I knew then that it was the same line that I got Baby Gonzo from at Target. Anyone else see this wacky commercial?

    Haven't seen the Piggy spot but have seen one for Kermit, so there are obviously at least two of them.

    What does the kid do to poor Baby Kermit? I nearly felt sorry for the Baby Piggy plush as the girl kept slapping her snout with the powder puff.

    Huh...weird. What network/time did you see this?

    Well...let's see...the only things I watched on TV yesterday were the news at 6 and The Simpsons right after that. And I can't even remember what channels those were on...my memory is horrible. Too many video games.

    I just saw a Fozzie one during Spongebob, so I'm thinking there's one per character.

    That would be very cool... Hopefully then they will do one with Rowlf once that one comes out. I would love to see Rowlf doing something again. :sympathy: What did Fozzie and Kermit do in their commercials?

    A kid was playing w/ a top hat and the Fozzie, supposedly putting on a joke show or something. Then it showed a clip of MB Foz getting hit w/ a tomato. That was pretty much it, though.

    Hey that reminds me: Someone told me recently that they're planning on DVD plushes of Scooter and Skeeter! Does anyone know if there's any grain of truth to this?

    I saw the Baby Gonzo plush commercial today. It made no sense. It started out showing a plate of macaroni and cheese and it said, "Like mac and cheese, Gonzo and me!" And then this girl and her Gonzo plush did all sorts of things, from wresting with each other to playing detective (I think, it was hard to tell). I wasn't really paying too much attention to it, but I still don't know what that mac and cheese part has to do with anything. I half expected the girl to try and cram mac and cheese into the Gonzo plush. These Muppet Babies plush commercials always take me by surprise.

    I think they were trying to say that Baby Gonzo and the little girl went together like macaroni and cheese. They go well together!

    I think all of the ads are a bit off the wall. The Piggy one was just a bit unsettling, lol.

    I severly doubt they would be on at that timeslot, seeing as they are targeted at the Nicktoons-age children.

    Just to let you guys & gals know Target has them on sale this week for $11.44. I got Kermit & Gonzo. :) :concern:

    Fozzie was sold out though.

    Today I saw the first commerical for these Muppet Babies dolls. It was shown on the CBS affiliate from Seattle (I get this channel through Digital Cable). It focused mainly on Baby Piggy, and included an animation clip of her saying "Yippy Skippy." The other dolls in the collection are Baby Kermit, Baby Fozzie and Baby Gonzo.
