Umm...I think we ALL get at the end of the day that the Muppets go back into a box and not back to a swamp, farm, or gigantic mansion. In OUR Muppet community here though we think of them beyond ping pong balls and felt. To us they are real! So yes to me those interviews ARE canon! And I think a lot of other people on here feel the same. So if you laugh at me your laughing at those fans as well. Oh and by the way 6:18 marker that is all.
