Muppets.com: What Gives?

    This is something I just haven't been able to wrap my head around for the last 5 years on Muppet Central.

    There is simpsons.com...starwars.com...disney.com...

    Where In the HECK is muppets.com? That thing looks like it hasn't been updated since 1997! Anyone else think it's completely strange what should be the flagship site has been left abandoned for over half a decade?

    Heck I think muppets.com should redirect to muppetcentral or something...just real unfortunate I guess.

    And henson.com ...ugh. Lets not go there. Its been that ugly flash thing for awhile...no idea why they changed it.

    My dream is a new slick glossy Muppet magazine, but first they need
    to get their own site! Luckily the fans are able to shoulder the burden of online news, articles and other stuff that *should* be on a muppets.com.

    Yeah, the Muppets.com website is kinda lame. The Muppetworld.com (or something like that) website is better, but still not great (Muppets from Space is the newest thing on that site!) The coolest thing about muppetworld.com is that they have that cool thing in Animal's world where you can listen to different songs. (Some aren't even on the latest soundtrack!) I'm just thankful for this website (Muppet Central that is :halo: )

    I have to say too that the 'official' Muppet websites are not very good. That's why I come here.

    Not the greatest example of an official website though is it ? I know what you mean though, with a whole team like 'Henson Interactive' you'd think they'd have made more of the web presence.

    I actually officially consider Muppet Central the *official* site, like everyone else. Im sure even Brian Henson is finally like "sigh, ok...fine..." Err, maybe not. But darnit, muppets.com reopened and revamped in 2004! Tho more of a chance Gary Coleman will become president.

    C'est moi!

    Here's hoping muppets.com gets reopened and revamped in 2004 in that case!

    Yup, Muppets.com being revamped, the Titanic being raised, and a midget running the country. I'll drink to that !

    Henson interactive is CR@P. Henson.com opens a stupid great pages, too big for my screan with no re-size opton!

    If that happens, make another bed over there for me, Luke! I'm leaving the country! By the way, what language do you folks speak over there? :o

    If you ask me they should hire Philip as Vice-President of Jim Henson Interactive!

    I do some freelance web design work and always cite MuppetCentral as an example of everything a website designed for a fan base should be.

    Heck, we got so many immigrants here now i'll let ya know when i find out myself. Consider the spare bed made - you'll have to fight the dog for it though ! :sympathy:
  14. Fozzie Bear

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    Thanks Luke. Um...what kind of dog is it?
  15. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    I think he means the canine kind. Not as in, "You never know, she might be a real dog," kind.
  16. Luke

    Luke Well-Known Member

    ... one that bites ! Hahaha.

    (I guess that still doesn't rule out the girlfriend but no she's not a dog, not human either mind you - I think high maintenence she-devil covers all bases!)

  17. Fozzie Bear

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    high maintenence she-devil or biting dog?

    I'll fight the dog.

    Might be kinda interesting to note just how confused those folks up at Henson Interactive really are. The website's been left vacant for so long, it tells today's date is "January 28, 2003!!!"

    Well, I've got 3004 so don't you complain

    That's funny, sounds like they need some new web designers.
