    heh...as previously stated, two of my main influences in life were Monty Python and Douglas Adams...I don't think the term "g rated" has ever been used to describe the words that come out of my mouth...except maybe in an..."advisory" manner...

    that's really awesome, is the duck going to be hard, or can you squeeze it?

    I think it is really important to squeeze the duckie...

    man, i could just imagine what this thread would sound like if fozzie came with a squeezable monkey or chicken!
    oh wait, fozzie will be coming with a rubber chicken!

    yeah, this thread really took a turn for the worse...and i think it's mostly my fault. i can't decide wether i'm ashamed or proud...

    it's not ALL my fault, though...the guy that fed that last straight line is admittedly not wearing any pants...that just makes it worse...

    What happened with the magnet? Is it a go or does Fozzie have a glued on hat?

    Reportedly the magnet works great and will be used on all Muppets with removable hats from here on out.

    Sorry.. I should have said... What about the magnet on IS Fozzie. Ken mentioned that Is Fozzie may have a glued on hat due to visibility issues. I was wondering if Ken had found a way to overcome that issue or if Henson decided yet.

    Dunno yet. Haven't seen a factory sample yet. What you have seen a photo of is a painted clear resin prototype. Gonna try to paint the magnet white. If that sucks, then no magnet and hat glued on.

    Wow, that Fozzie looks very cool. Kudos to you guys at Palisades for being able to make this a reality considering the timetable the factory left you with after "forgetting" to retool the Animal in time to make him an exclusive.

    Just remember: "You gotta put down the duckie if you wanna play the saxaphone". ;)

    great job Ken! i took a full week break from the net so i'm a little late. i feel he's even better then the beaker one! maybe it's just cause i like fozzie more. the duck is perfect! if there is a chance that the duck can't come with him for the fair could the CC wait a little long for one to be made with him?

    Zack)Rowlf the, can Bunsen hold the duck too?;-)Dog.

    The duck is a go...so I am not worried (crosses fingers nervously...). Got a photo of the factory prototype this weekend...looks even better than the resin piece in the photo.

    Also saw an actual sample of the EM Playset playset on Friday. Very cool. A full two inches taller than the Labs, and about an inch wider and deeper. And VERY colorful, much more so than the dinginess of the Labs.

    So far Series 2 has gone quite well as far as stuff turning out like I hoped. Some issues with the "Wild Hair" Harry and whether or not I can get approval on it, but I dig it big time and hope we do. The only bummer so far is having to take the real strings out of the guitar for Floyd...just too much of a risk of the strings breaking, so we gotta mold them. But hey, at least the magnets work and the cannon fires, so it ain't all bad...

    Tomorrow on the Daily Bit we are gonna show the Vacation Fozzie...be sure to check it out. (Yeah I know...shameless plug)
