    Matt Robinson was the original Gordon, not Hal.

    So, uh, this just kinda came in my head...

    With alot of negative backlash on Muppets from Space..... I'm actually kinda waiting for the day Michael Bay tries directing a Muppet movie and then we'll talk.

    See what I did there? :D

    You heard about the Dora movie too, huh?

    Looking back at "D Duah Duah" (or "Be my D", whichever you want to call it),

    I found it kind of odd that the trio of female singers had "Di Di'O Day" as part of the name when we never even knew which one is Di Di'O Day. I felt like they should have just been called "The Dew Drops."

    On another note, I feel like if this song were written before season 11 (its earliest appearance was 12, but I'm NOT convinced this was made in 1980), I could easily see Jim or Richard doing Bushman Bill.

    This is basically a case of bad memory, but I remember seeing the Dragnet Wanted letter W skit on YouTube way back in 2006 and remember being surprised that it was outside. For years beforehand, I thought the skit was inside an abandoned warehouse.

    My dad had at least one ZZ Top album (Six Pack I believe), and I remember as a kid thinking "ZZ Blues" would be on the CD.... To which it wasn't. Though it did for awhile make me think ZZ Top were a Muppet band and "ZZ Blues" was like a special guest appearance.

    Such a shame the beards got shorter over the years....

    I used to think that Maury was Bob from Sesame Street. Yes, I mean that Maury.

    "Oooh, who are the people in your neighborhood? Not you're father!"

    When I was a kid, I thought this blue twiddlebug was Thomas twiddlebug.


    I honestly don't know if I even still have this twiddlebug plush anymore.

    Holy shizzballs, the foreshadowing!

    I must confess that if I knew what was to come a few months after this conversation, I would have hightailed it in the other direction faster than you can say 'Koozebane'.

    What a crap year for the Muppets.

    Which is why I left reddit. Because of idiots downvoting my Whose Line comments.

    I did think at first that Miss Piggy was voiced by a girl. Little did I know that Frank Oz did a girl!

    I thought the same when I was a kid. Was definitely surprised when I found out it was a guy years later.

    If its nothing like the college humor parody I'll be disappointed

    To be honest,

    I was kind of surprised to find out Richard Hunt was gay. Just wouldn't have guessed.

    #MeToo. I think I found out when I read that he died from AIDS. And no, I'm not associating sexual orientation with HIV/AIDS, but I just had inkling that he may have been gay.

    I actually didn't see the Muppet Movie until... a few years after I became a Muppet fan... I always thought it was some weird spinoff film of Sweetums for some reason, despite being the ultimate "Muppet" movie, and being called the MUPPET movie, lol. :o

    Oh and also I used to think Elmo was performed by a girl! :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    I thought that Elmo and Bear (from Bear in the Big Blue House) were both performed by white actors, not black ones.

    I also used to think Elmo was performed by a white guy.

    Also, I'm pretty sure Noel Macneal is white.
