Great story. I wish I would of been young enough to love it but I wasnt.
I remember when Muppets from Space came out too. I was on vacation and we were staying at a resort. No one wanted to go see it with me cause they wanted to do things we couldn't do back at home. But I persisted and they gave in and went with. I loved it, and so did they.
Moral of the story: Never give up on the Muppets
Wow 8 years that is so strange to think that since MFS came out i was just in the last year of high school . I loved it so much and still do love, i saw it in the theatere durning the week of high school finals and to relive stress and it worked .
i was so glad to have my faverite muppets all there in the theatre during that time .
THE MUPPETS RULE AND ALWAYS WILL even when i am 100 years old he he he .
i hope that the new one will be out soon . One of the best besides muppet from space is MTM he he he . Piggy and her puffy hair just love that so funny and with miss Jone rivers in a department store putting on make up .
Any muppet movie will be great , i can't wait for it .
I'm glad other people liked MFS, honestly. I wish I felt the same way, but my first time seeing it was painful and embarrassing. My personal moral is, I don't have to enjoy everything the Muppets put out, it doesn't make me any less of a fan.
Couldnt have said it better myself
Whatever it's about, I just hope that Frank Oz Directs it!
Yes that is really what i hope I love the way that frank Oz works Oh yes i hope that he directs the next one .
I highly doubt Frank Oz would be involved
You are probably right , but having hope never hurts
Actually it's funny you mentioned that you hoped Frank Oz would direct the Muppets again, not because it will happen (I seriously doubt that), but because the last time I watched MTM (oh, 2 weeks ago?) I noticed for the first time the drastically different humor and direction in that movie as compared to TMM or GMC, or the more current movies. For the first time in a Muppet movie there's not a lot of music softening the cuts... for example, think of the first scene in Pete's diner, when Kermit meets Jenny. It goes something like this: "My name's Kermit." "Hi Kermit, I'm Jenny." Cut to Kermit, close up: "I'm a frog." Hard cut to Miss Piggy watching Kermit and Jenny. Now IDK if it's because I majored in drama and my roommate's a film major that I notice little things like that, but it really different than previous Muppet humor ("Drinks on the house!" "What color are their hands now?").
TMM was always my favorite Muppet Movie, but I've found that for many people it's MTM, and when I was little that was my fav as well. It's just funny to see that now that I've, you know, kind of figured out for myself how the humor in MTM is different.
Watch it again (not like it's a chore) and let me know if you see what I mean!
I think it would take an awful lot for him to come back. And if he does come back to Direct he would have to do Piggy and Fozzie and then whats Eric going to do. The more Eric works the better he is going to get. It might almost be detremental for Frank to come back.
Good point about eric.
What you said is very true he does a wonderful job with miss piggy .
I know in 1999 Trank OZ has mentioned that he would like to direct the next Muppt movie.
that is a interesting thought about tank oz we shall see who ever it is i can't wait The muppets will always rock
I think Frank will show up for a movie. But Of coures Eric can work if frank does his characters. The Muppteers do all kinds of things on a movie.
I know Eric would still work but I thinkthat it is important that these are now Eric's characters. I dont think the Muppets should keep being passed back and forth.
I agree. Once there's that transition to a new performer it takes some getting used to but eventually the audience is going to recognize the new performer's version of the character. It would be confusing to the audience if the performer keeps switching. Think of how we feel now when we watch the early episodes of TMS and Piggy's voice switches from Frank to Richard within the same episode at times. It's very odd and it pulls you out of it for a second. I find it odd that Frank sometimes comes back to Sesame Street even though Eric's taken over his roles.
I also think that Eric is doing a really great job. In the few things he's done since he took over for Piggy and Fozzie in 2001 his improvement has been vast. His Piggy is terrific and his Fozzie is stronger with every appearance. He did an excellent job on Red & Green Christmas. Of all the recent Muppet replacements, Eric has the fullest of my confidences (...is that grammatically correct?). I'm much more concerned about Jerry Nelson's replacements. I like John Kennedy but Jerry has such a distinctive voice that I don't think anyone will be able to fully replace him. John's song on Red & Green Christmas was good, but it wasn't Floyd for me. (And this might be anarchy on this Barretta-lovin' forum, but Bill Barretta isn't Dr. Teeth or Rowlf to me either.) But Eric? I definitely heart him.
Well Frank never officially quit Sesame Street. They just wanted Eric so they use those characters more often. Like Caroll said, He doesn't want anybody taking over his Characters and I do noe believe tht I've seen Matt paly him One time last season.
And it like Frank says, It's not about the voice, it's all about the character.
My roommate worked for Sesame earlier this year and she said that a lot of the time Matt would perform Big Bird and Caroll would dub the voice in later on. Matt used to do all of the Journey to Ernie segments, but that was cut this season, so I don't know how often his voice is heard, but I'm sure he's been "seen" quite a bit.
And I totally agree that it's all about the character but... if a new person is introduced on a recording... it's all about the voice. Because that's all ya got.
