    Let's hope someone remembered to ask about the Muppet Show Season 4 and 5 DVDs...

    I think whoever wrote this article is mistaken- I'm pretty sure he meant to say Matt Vogel.

    I was joking. I know that they meant Matt Vogel, as they listed Floyd Pepper as one of his characters.

    They also announced that 4-5 new Pigs in Space shorts will be posted on YouTube in the near future.

    I love Kermit saying "Are you sure we can do this song?" Hilarious!

    I'm much more interested in what lies ahead for the Muppets. Right now there is so much new and exciting stuff happening with the new show.

    Hate to bust your bubble, but according to MouseInfo.com, video wasn't allowed to be taken at the panel, so that's a bit of a bummer. We might still get a few more snippets though.

    On another annoying note, 'Whitmire' is apparently a difficult surname to spell. Who is Steve Whitmore again?

    Putting that bad news aside though, I'm incredibly pleased with this particular panel. Disney letting the Muppeteers doing what they do best in front of an audience is a huge step in the right direction.

    Danny Horn wrote a loose transcript of the entire thing. We can read about it at least:

    I know it's not the same, but I still enjoyed it. It was actually quite easy to read it in the voices of the Muppets and the performers and I could imagine the audiences laughter at certain parts.

    Other then the new 'Pigs in Space' skits coming up, I don't think so.

    We'll see if Pigs in Space has more of a classic feel or if it's modernized like the attempted Muppets Tonight revival. It would also be wonderful if they retain Jerry Nelson's vocals on the Pigs in Space intro.

    I'm sure they will use Jerry 's introduction; the Muppets have always been great when it comes to honouring the people who brought so much to them.

    I can't wait to see how they go about it. Strangepork has been missing for a while so it will be great to see him again. You never know, we might even see the return of Dearth Nader!!!

    I wonder who'll perform Strangepork, I think Rudman or Vogel are good choices.:electric:
