    You should he seems to be doing so good, and really happy to meet with fans. He has also said he is planning to continue to carry on Jim's legacy with his own work.

    Now Confession time:
    I like the Dark Crystal more then Labyrinth.

    Yeah, if you watch the convention with Steve on YT, at one point he references how he's going to continue on with puppetry in some form or the other, which is actually really exciting! Hopefully he will make his own series with his self-developed characters!

    MUPDATE!

    I went ahead and watched a couple of them. He seems to be having fun :). If he is gonna do his own thing now, it'll be interesting to see what he comes up with. I'm kinda hoping he brings Otis back to do something.

    I think I might actually prefer David Rudman's Cookie Monster over Frank's.

    Same. David has made Cookie Monster a more well rounded, 3 dimensional character, I think.

    Exactly! I suspect it's probably because when they recast him he was able to appear in more street stories so the writers got to flesh him out more.
    But yeah, as much as I do love Frank's Cookie, I can't imagine that version being able to carry Cookie's Crummy Pictures.

    I have been a Muppet fan for a long time now. I have seen 'the comedians a bear' many times now but I still don't get the joke of the sketch. English isn't my native language but it isn't the worst. I am trying my best to get the joke but it's just not coming through. Could somebody please explain the punchline!

    In the English language the word bear has two different meanings. One is the animal, which is Fozzie. The other meaning is being bare naked. So when Kermit says "The comedian is a bear" they are saying Fozzie is the animal bear, but Fozzie turns it around to mean bare naked, and then says he is wearing a neck tie. Hope that helps.

    When I first watched the Muppet Show when I was younger, I didn't get it either, it wasn't until recently until I got the joke, lol!

    (For those who were visitors of/on SW's blog,) I'm eager for a 'Muppet Pundit' reunion - I hope I'm not wrong, and it's not like I think of it all the time, but I often tell myself on the inside that we'll be talking there again in just a few days...or possibly within the next month -- assuming maintenance on the site has been completed by then.

    I absolutely loved his blog! I think he had a lot of nasty trolls on there that wanted to turn everything he and his fans said aginst him. I stood up for Steve on his blog many times, and I still find myself defending him on this site and Facebook.
    As a confession, I still believe Steve was right in everything he has said. I also feel Disney was in the wrong for firing him, and it's just one more step in showing us fans they clearly do not understand the Muppets or there fans.

    I also agree with what he said. Now if only he'd come back...I wish I was there to defend him when the trolls initially attacked. Of course, I'd never want for them to return (or new attackers to come), but in the worst case, if needed, I will say something this time -- I've got responses ready for them...

    I still am standing up for Steve, but not for the simple fact he was fired, but I'm standing up for his message.

    There's this teacher at my old middle school who is such a fan of Elmo, that she had him all over her classroom.

    In fact, Elmo's Song was even played for the teacher at a special event once.

    Kind of the opposite for me, only because I thought Frank's Cookie sounded more natural. David's Cookie sounds like he's trying too hard to get the voice down.

    To me, it kind of felt like that in David's earlier years as Cookie, but now it sounds more like kind of his own thing.
