    A-freakin'-mazing. Sam and Kermit are both spot-on awesome. LOVE the new Sam puppet and just Sam in general. Fantastic, brilliant, absolutely wonderful! Go, Muppets, go! There's no stopping you now!

    Hehe! Loved Kermit's comment to Sam. Very Muppet Show-esque.

    I think Eric has slipped in and out of a good Sam in the past, but this was pefect. Great job!

    Classic stuff! Haha ... Karaoke a typical American past time. Funny. It's kinda cool when you see the Muppets out there, doin stuff that we'd do, living there lives. Its like they live in a parallel Muppet world going about their business everyday lol

    It is so truly fantastic that I am unable to form a cohesive sentence to describe how fantastic it truly is. So I shall just say this:

    :attitude:SAM ROCKS!:attitude:


    I believe that is sufficient enough.​

    I have to say, I don't think I care too much for the new Sam puppet... seems like it restricted a lot of movement.

    But I did LOVE this sketch. We finally moved out of the Beaker and Chef type videos and onto distinct character pieces. And there's nothing better than Sam's uber-patriotism that totally sends him out of control. I loved the calling Karaoke an "American pastime," and his rage at the end over Canadian bands... really. Will say it came off a but short though... but still a real good one. Not quite as large scale as Bohemian Rhapsody... but still a very good one.

    I really would like to see ones withOUT music videos... even if they're just reruns from XD...

    lol great vid, although, while I think Eric does a fantastic Miss Piggy and Fozzie, and a good Animal, I'm still not a fan of his performance of Sam >_>

    Great video nonetheless

    I like the look of the puppet, but the stiff mouth movement bothers me.

    What doesn't bother me is the performance! He may not sound exactly like Sam, but the personality was certainly there! And Kermit popping on-screen in classic Muppet Show style was awesome.:)

    This is definitely one of my favorite videos they've done, but that probably has to do with the fact that I love Sam so much.:attitude:

    The look has grown on me a bit. If the movement is deemed to be a performance problem, then I'm sure they will adjust it.

    I think part of the reason why they are going back to the classic Sam look, is so he looks more like an eagle, specifically the shape of the beak. They might want to consider dialing back on his eyebrows though.

    It's funny, yet it left me wanting more. That's the point I guess. Great vid. :attitude:

    I think the problem is the shape of the beak... it seems just kinda small, and the bottom lip doesn't really move all that much either... so I really think it stifles the movement in that aspect. I mean, Sam's beak was a lot more flexible in other puppets. I like the rest of the look fine, but it seems the beak needs a real adjustment to get the full line of expression back.
