    The way I look at it, Vogel and Rudman are probably not on set so the only other band member would be Dr. Teeth. Yeah. Why isn't Dr. Teeth there? :D

    I wonder if Sam will tolerate things the kids say and do better than he does with the Muppets. Will he look down on them or be disgusted by them? Will his attitude be more like his attitude in Sex and Violence, where he seemed to have a "whatever" attitude towards the weirdness? Or will Sam interact with children who actually have the kind of views Sam would have?

    Then again, on Sesame Street, Bert never seems to get mad at kids when talking with them (though he has demonstrated anger with a few), and Oscar seems to be less grouchy when interacting with kids.

    I really love seeing Kermit interact with kids again like he did so well on Sesame Street It will also be interesting watching other Muppets like Piggy, Animal, Rowlf,and Pepe interact with kids as well.

    I hope that these new videos will help take away, any fears or miss judgement of this project. I for one can not wait!

    I really liked what I saw. It's very reminiscent of the Muppet/kid moments on Sesame Street, and not Dora-like at all with the slow, loud, babyish tone of voice asking kids questions about things. I especially enjoyed Animal's scenes. :)

    I won't say I'm excited for these but I do think this is a very good idea and extremely cute. I do agree these Muppet Moments have a Sesame Street feel to them. Usually being cute and similar to Sesame Street would be a negative for The Muppets but in this case (as short inserts) it'll actually be quite enjoyable.

    Something I am interested is seeing other Muppets other than Kermit and Fozzie interacting with kids especially Miss Piggy, Sam the Eagle and Pepe. Through their 60 years The Muppets have never really interacted with kids apart from Kermit, are there any clips out there of Miss Piggy talking with children? I can't think of a single one.

    Well with the exception of there appearance on Good Luck Charlie, I don't think Piggy has ever had any interaction with kids. So it should be very interesting,but I have a lot of faith in Eric who has had a lot of work with kids on Sesame, so Piggy should do just fine.

    Good Luck Charlie, I knew there had to be at least one example out there, thanks for that, it was driving me crazy.

    No problem!

    Come to think of it, after watching these agin they really do seem to be a lot like the classic Sesame inserts,but with the Muppet Show Muppets, so it should be very interesting.

    And, hopefully, the pig will not try to assault or even insult any of the kids like she did to poor innocent Charlie on Good Luck, Charlie--that appearance still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, since it destroyed Piggy's character big time. :grr:

    Hopefully, Vogel, Rudman and Linz will partake in future installments so that Robin, Floyd, Scooter, Janice, Walter, etc. can be able to appear in the series and interact with the kids as well.

    It was a segment on Nickelodon during the 90's. It didn't have any of the main Muppet characters (expect for Robin) just background type characters. Here is the link to Muppet Wiki which shows several of the segments. http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Muppet_Time

    I like how the lady in the behind the scenes video said how this would be a great way to introduce a new generation to the Muppets. I think and hope she is right.

    Its just super random that they are throwing The Newsman in this. Im not complaining but I can't wait to see how he is with kids

    If anything it will give him more of a personality. I mean let's face it all he really dose it report some fake news story only to hurt by said report. So that should be very interesting.

    Hm..maybe he'll probably have a little news flash at some point in an episode talking about the fact that The Muppets are interviewing kids, but, eh, if he's actually gonna be interacting with some kids, then that'll definitely be interesting.:)

    I agree. Having The Newsman in some of these episodes should prove to be quite interesting. Maybe he & the kids will do some bizarre news report, only to have something weird happen like it always happened to him!!!!

    I don't know I'm kind of having trouble wrapping my head around kids playing with Pepe, Sam, Piggy, The newman, and Beaker. However I can see Kermit, Fozzie Animal and Rowlf doing quite well.
