    Hey Guys,
    Just before i start i wanna say; Im talkign about real Music Videos, The kind that come on MTV.
    Not Musical Numbers taken from the shows.

    So far we know about these -

    • Love Power - Muppet Treasure Island
    • I Will Always Love You - Muppets Take Manhattan
    • Kokomo - Muppet Beach Party
    • Wipe Out - Muppet Beach Party
    • Halfway Down The Stairs - The Muppet Show

    Now did anyone know that they also filmed videos for the Kermit Unpigged album ?

    I got a video today and it had clips of the 'She Drives Me Crazy - Starring Phil Collins' and 'On Broadway' videos.

    It also had clips of the Muppets with Lily Tomlin, Ozzy Osbourne, Little Richard, Leslie Neilsen and George Benson.

    And clips of those people sitting in a Directors Chair with the Muppets areound them talking, Like they were in an Interview.


    Does anyone else know any more about these ?

    thanks

    Oooooooh i'd like to hear more about the Ozzy Osbourne one ? I've never heard they did all these though. It's a bit wierd to imagine Ozzy with puppets unless he's biting the heads off them !

    They did a music video for "Halfway Down The Stairs"? MTV didn't even exist then, what did they show it on? Odd that they'd pick that song to do a video for. Is this available anywhere, on a video compilation perhaps?

    Luke,

    Hey,
    ill explaing what i saw.

    Everyone has seen Kokomo and Wipe out, Well they should have anyway, So im not going into detail.

    She Drives Me Crazy -
    It had Kremit in a suit and Miss Piggy in black with a short haircut dancing beside eachother singing the song.
    Then it would cut to clips of Phil Collins holding up the cue cards and throwing them everywhere.

    On Broadway -
    George Benson and Clifford in a recoding studio singing into the microphones.

    Ozzy Osbourne -
    Him singing into a microphone.
    (hen an interview with him)

    (They werent the full videos, It kept switching from video to video with a man talking over them)

    Then we saw clips of the stars i mentioned earlier in the thread, It was like an interview thing.

    The Muppets that i saw were Miss Piggy, Kermit, Gonzo, Clifford, Floyd and Rizzo.

    They also showed a clip of The Muppets with Leslie Nielsen and Little Richard so i think they had cameos in the videos like Phil Collins did.

    I wanna see more of these videos!

    BlueFrackle,

    I have seen videos for "She Drives Me Crazy" and "All Together Now". Those are the only two that I specifically remember. I don't remember where I saw them, but I know they exist!

    Scott,

    'Halfway Down The Stairs' got to number 7 in the UK Charts.
    With Manha Manha as the B-side.

    It had another version taped as the music video, It is similar to the version on The Muppet Show with the same stairs and background, But with different Camera shots.

    See ya

    Yeah i agree, we need to see more of these, or even better - get em online.

    Muppet Central Television - that'd be pretty cool !

    Nate,

    'She Drives Me Crazy' looks great, But i dont think it was Frank performing Piggy, maybe Kevin Clash.

    I'd love to see the video for 'All together Now' !!

    See ya

    All I remember is Harry Smith in the "All Together Now" video blowing his horn. And Phil Collins with the cue cards. Wish I could remember more BlueFrackle, but I can't. I know there were cameos in one video (kinda like put down the ducky - another music video you forgot in the list), but I don't remember which video it was!!!

    Nate,

    Thanks !

    Yeah i thought id stay with Muppets.

    I wonder if they were also going to release a video of this, If the CD was a hit ?

    It seems weird to get all these Celebs in and actually make all these Music Videos then never use them.

    If it was for Promotional purposes, They would have made like one or two only, Not the whole album !

    See ya

    Nickelodeon used to show a Muppet music video featuring Kermit and (IIRC) Jerry Seinfeld. I don't remember what song it was for, but I know that Jerry Seinfeld (or someone else that looked like him) was in it.

    You sure it wasn't Harry Smith? They don't really look alike, but you never know.

    Right!!! The "video-version" can be seen in the video compilation "Childrens Songs & Stories w/The Muppets" from 1985(Playhouse Videos), and the regular version from the Harvey Korman episode of The Muppet Show!

    I wonder if they taped the later "video-version" just for "Top Of The Pops" or something like that....

    Hans,

    I think just for Top of The Pops.

    It can also be seen in 'I Love Muppets' the BBC special.
