    and that's how the dleted scene plays out in the book. I think they might have actually shot it too. if you look in the background of the book. Towards the end, when everyone is receiving their letters to return to NYC, in the pic of the band gettng theirs you can see beaker in the corner. I think they're there in the film at the same point. I'd have to go back and look.

    Getting back to Oz, I like the idea of seeing the pirate puppets return as bad guys in this. there were some cool looking puppets used in MCC and MTI and am glad to see them get a bit more used. Those human puppets in VMC (who also appear in the background of MCC) are pretty ugly though. And my guess is yes, Sweetums as well as the others will turn good at the end since that's what happens to the Witch's mnions in the book. They no longer have to fear her tyranny and they are greatful to Dorothy.

    Hey matleo, aww you typed all that for us! Thank you very much! Yep that's how i figured the sceen would work, and i think you right about beaker too, as it also shows Bunsen and Beaker in the end with the other chracters Kermit welcomes to be in the broadway show. It only seems right that they would have and did have a sence in the movie. Now i only hope someday if it was films that it could be put on Disney relased TMTM dvd if the footage is around and in good shape?

    Is Clueless Morgan one of the returning pirates, I think he should be cleaned up and made one of the regular line-up gang!!

    Are any UK fans slightly concerned as to how we are going to get to see this?

    Nah. It will be on DVD pretty soon after it is released on TV. I'd bet on that.

    Full Cast and Crew for The Muppets' Wizard of Oz

    Take a look everyone, I don't know how many people have seen this, but it's a full list of everyone involved. Interesting to see Bill Barretta listed as a co-producer. Full Cast and Crew for The Muppets' Wizard of Oz

    Thanks Fishenwolf. Few things I noticed from reading that cast list.
    1 They've misspelled Rowlf's and Camilla's names.
    2 Why they remove Dorothy's last name of "Gale"?
    3 Why are so many of the main characters listed as "uncredited"?
    4 Who's this "Spotted Dick" character?
    5 Is the character listed as "Very Old Tom" the same one as "Really Old Tom", only misnamed?
    Heh, guess we'll just have to wait till May to find out.

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Ah, Count. You must remeber that is only IMDb, and they often misspell/misname/missalign many things. In fact if you wrote to them telling them Rowlf is spelt differently, they would probably change it. And then if you told them it was Rolph they'd probably change it yet again.

    I think they are all '(uncredited)' because the film is not yet out, they can't check with the credits. But people like Dorothy have been officialy anounced.

    Bill was the co-producer of their last TV movie too...he's become pretty much the head puppeteer. I wonder if he's being considered to directa Muppet movie at some point? :rolleyes:

    Frank Oz

    Well it just won't be the same without Frank Oz performing SAM. :smirk:
  18. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    But I heard that Sam wasn't performed by Frank (puppet-wise) in MTI either. Or were you refering to the voice work? If so, I agree. It is a shame to be losing such a great guy, but, hey, maybe it's best to let someone take over before anything can happen to Frank, otherwise one day we'd all wake up and the Muppeteers would be gone and they'd be no replacements.

    I think i's better this way.

    The Good Doctor Well-Known Member

    Mostly I have voice concerns, in IAVMMC Sams voice stunk, so too did his look. Who ever is building the Muppets/ puppets these days needs to take a class. I know for a while Frank was doing voice overs, while others were performing, and I do not fault Frank for wanting to continue directiong. In fact that is what he always wanted to do, the Muppets was always kind of a fun side project for him. I think it is sad when I can do a better Sam voice than the guy performing him. It kind of shockes me back into reality and takes away from the muppets when the voices don't work right.
