    So I'll be honest.

    When I first saw the alternate take to Little Jerry's "Sad", I thought it was kind of weak.

    I mean, I get that Big Jeffy's hat fell off in the first one so they had to do another take, but the movement in the second take looked pretty awkward to me, almost like they were rushing to get things done.

    I don't think I mentioned this yet, but um....

    Ernie's chocolate, strawberry, peach, vanilla, banana, pistachio, peppermint, lemon, orange, butterscotch cone made me want to try pistachio ice cream.

    Terrible. :smirk:

    I'm going to be honest.

    As much as I loved Jerry Nelson's singing, I didn't think he could carry out bass vocals too well. Just sounded too guttery half the time. :smirk:

    I think Muppet Christmas Carol is the worst Muppet film.
    Then followed by The Muppets 2011

    You know how a Very Muppet Xmas has gotten alot of flack?

    To be honest, I actually haven't seen it since.... Well, when it aired on TV.

    I wanna check it out again to see how my thoughts hold up from my then 9-year-old self.

    I actually don't really mind IAVMMCM (that's a lot of initials!) all that much.

    Like, I don't really get why people hate it so much. It's definitely not the best Muppet Christmas movie, but it's watchable, and in some parts, enjoyable imo.

    Muppet Treasure Island on the other hand... :shifty:

    What's wrong with Treasure Island :(

    It's just my least favorite of all the movies. I find it very unfunny, boring, and also Fozzie with his finger. It's just - bad imo.

    To be honest I find fozzie and Mr bimbo quite funny

    To each his own I guess. I just found it pointless and stupid. :rolleyes:

    Apart from his plot in A Very Merry Muppet Xmas Movie i thought Mr bimbo was the only decent thing fozzie had until 2011

    I like what Eric has done with Fozzie's character; the only thing that ruins it for me personally is the awful teddy-bear Fozzie puppet. That, and Fozzie's voice is pretty hit-or-miss.

    I didnt like the 2015 series very much, but it got A LOT better when Fozzie stopped getting any focus. I think it was both the writing and Eric’s recent performance as the character, which I really don’t like.

    As a kid, when I first saw "We're all Monsters!" On the "Monster Hits" VHS, I was actually confused on why Elmo was with a bunch of random monsters (you'd think he would be with characters like Telly, Zoe, Cookie Monster, etc).

    Till I learned years later he was originally another nameless Anything Monster. :shifty:

    On another note, I'll also admit I remember wanting to join in the fun when they were all goofing around and happily dancing at the end. Also, I'll actually admit I've always preferred the updated version more. Clash's Elmo voice blends in better with the unison (that, and Jerry's Elmo voice just sounds like an ugly smoker's voice. :smirk: )

    For a long time I was angry at Frank Oz for "leaving" the Muppets. I thought he had abandoned the very thing he helped create. I've just recently gotten over this with the help of Muppet Guy's Talking, and all the interviews he has done as of late.

    I'll be honest.

    I thought Bad Bart was kind of a useless character.

    Like, I get there were other "mean" cowboy's like Mean Manny and Billy the Grown-up that seemed like they were going to cause trouble but turn out to be harmless, but here's what kind of bugs me.

    They literally filmed both original Bad Bart skits on the same day (the one with the bartender was just a "comeback", likewise with Sinister Sam drawing the letter y and his appearance with Forgetful Jones), one of which was clearly meant to him to be an antagonistic character (five good men) and the other a good guy (Marshal Earp's birthday). So my question is..... Why the **** did they decide to make him into two different types of characters, especially when filming on the same day?

    I'm gonna be honest.

    Some Swedish Chef skits have given me the munchies.... I'm not joking.

    That's... never happened to me.

    And for good reasons; he's a god-awful chef, lol.

    I mean, I won't lie....

    The hot dogs, fish chowder, hot sauce, spaghetti, Japanese Samurai cake and donuts always made me hungry.
