    Disney Channel stars Ashley Tisdale, Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, Dylan and Cole Sprouse and The Cheetah Girls join the famous Muppets including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and Fozzie Bear, in the television special "Studio DC: Almost Live!" which features song, dance and backstage antics of a variety show.

    "Studio DC: Almost Live!" airs Saturday, July 19 (8:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Disney Channel. On the show Ashley Tisdale will be doing Bop To The Top from High School Musical with Kermit the Frog which was pre-recorded on July 30, 2007 (Yes, one year ago)!

    It appears Disney is going forward with reintroducing the Muppets to a younger audience using their Disney Channel stars. I'm not a big fan of these stars or programs, but I do think it is a good idea and will be great for the upcoming film.

    Also, I noticed in addition to the Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and Gonzo lineup that there's also Animal with the entire Mayhem band along with the Snowths in another portion. It pleases me to the the Electric Mayhem getting gigs. :flirt: :sing:

    THAT IS AWWWWWWWWWWWWESOME! ! ! ! I don't care if it's the awful Disney Channel stars--it's THE MUPPETS! WHOO! They're back! :excited:

    And looking through those pictures and reading the captions from them, it appears that the Muppets are actually the ones putting on the show with all these DC stars in it. Interesting. I'm very, very excited about this. Especially the pictures of the Snowths and the Electric Mayhem. VERY exciting.

    Interesting. Exciting. Good news? ... Yes. Yes, I think so.

    I don't care for the Muppets co-stars for this special, but at least it brings the Muppets into the public eye, and hopefully, it'll atract a new audience to the Muppets.

    The Snowths and the Electric Mayhem? Very cool. But... what is that blue thing Kermit's wearing? :eek:

    Oh well take the bad with the good, internet sam videos = good.
    Children shows with horrible acting and white bread characters = bad
    Dr. Teeth & the band + Snowths = Amazingly Good
    Kermit in that outfit = no no no no bad

    Hmmm. Has this replaced the ad-bumpers about technology that were set to feature the Muppets and the Disney kids?

    I just walked through San Francisco's Civic Center area - the epicenter of Pride weekend and Kermit's blue outfit would even be out of place there! Eeek! It reminds me of when Paula Abdul dressed the muppets in magenta and green vinyl dance suits for Muppets Tonight. :eek:

    Has Hilda died? Who's dressing the Muppets these days?

    GASPS! :eek:

    I cannot believe this! They're finally giving the Muppets another chance with the public!

    And the full Electric Mayhem's there, too! *fangirl screams*

    HURRY UP WITH THE SPECIAL, DISNEY! Or we'll throw... penguins! Yeah, that's it, penguins! We'll throw penguins at you!

    Beware the penguins... :zany:

    Is that...Kermit? At the checkin desk for Zach and Cody?

    I've been waiting for this for SO long...yes, I am a fan of Zach and Cody...

    Ever since "That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana" I've wanted to see another mixup including the Mupps.

    :shifty: When looking at the Disney site and what they choose to promote it's this Disney Channel kids product, not so much Mickey and the gang. Don't get me wrong. I disagree with that, but that is their choice and the fact they're choosing to connect them to the Muppets shows a level of confidence in Kermit and company that has always been lacking with the mouse.

    :) I remember sitting on an airplane several years ago with a young person assigned in the seat next to me. She was every bit as American as any kid but barely knew Kermit, much less who the Muppets are. I cannot imagine my childhood without the Muppet Show and movies! That is what this project will help resolve. It will show a new generation that Kermit is more than an iconic green puppet - he, and his gang, have distinct personalities and a unique wit that crosses many boundaries.

    :cool: If it takes Hannah Montana to do that than so be it! Just think of an era of new fans outbidding us on rare Muppet items on Ebay! What a wonderful problem to have!

    Oh boy! Oh boy! Muppets on TV agian! I only hope my sis doesn't bug me about it. (She gave me smirks when Harvey Firestien appeared on award show [we knew him from Elmo Saves Christmas])

    Kermit's blue outfit is supposed to being matching Ashley's. I believe that';s the outfit her partner wore in the movire High School Musical.

    Hmmm at first thought I was like ohh no. But looking at it, this might be interesting. Especially with the Snowths, the EM band? I mean yes the muppets on tv and all, but i just dont know what to think of it. I'll just have to tune in and see. :)

    I have to agree with the positive statements about this. Do I like those Disney shows? Not really, but I'm excited to see the Muppets getting SOME kind of exposure and it could turn out to be alot of fun. Thumbs up Disney!

    Well i think that this is all because of Jason Seagl wanting to do a movie. If he didn't then i don't think the Muppets would not be comming out with new stuff this quick. I mean we have a new video on youtube, and it has some Muppets we have not seen in a long time. Plus we have new videos on Muppets.com very cool stuff, and I feel that all this is just the very begging of the Muppets fainly going in the right direction.

    This show was taped in 2007 so it isnt a recent taping. But still i get what your saying.

    Somebody tell me... why am I not excited about this?
  18. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Because you don't connect with silly sit-coms for kids?

    For me it is less about personal excitement and more about excitement for the Muppets. I am interested in seeing how this special handles the characters. This is a demographic that has been lacking in Muppet audiences and Disney's trying to change that.

    I must, otherwise, I don't believe I'd watch Kenan and Kel after school everyday when it used to be on Nickelodeon.
