Pigs singing the Happy Wanderer

    That's a very good point. It's easy to lose sight of how much the piggies liked each other and cared even though they seemed to selfishly keep singing happily when they fell off one by one. Or happily for part of the time as in the case of the leader after the second piggy fell.;)
    But you do have to admit that when the leader tells his remaining buddy to watch his step at that particular moment it was very obvious indeed that he cared about him, wasn't it? He must have been very sad that both his friends were dead even though naturally he had to cover it up for the sake of the audience's enjoyment right?:D

    Hehe, you bet. Hey, he was an actor, after all! ;) And you know, ya gotta entertain the audience... which they all did oh so well! :D

    I do think it's clear how much the piggy buddies cared about each other. Well, maybe continuing with their singing helped them feel a little bit better. And maybe their buddy inspired them to try and keep climbing and try to make it to the top! With... weird results! ;)

    Your welcome crazed!

    Glad to here your doing well, Marty!

    That's gerat!

    You have to remember that the Moutain of Love was suppost to be a real mountain, so they were just climbing it and really has to reason to be comedic. While the Muppet how mountian was suppost to be just props because it os a live show that is just playing it up for comedic laughs. That's why the moutain on sesame stree was also more elaborats looking. Plus that had to take into consideration that children might not see the houmor of falling off the mountain and become concerned or worried about it. So that's a reason why they didn't do it that way.

    True. That is a reasonable way of looking at it William. Since TMS was set in a stage theater all the sketches were supposedly set on stage anyway.
    It's just that in the fun of our crazy discussion we can understandably forget about the stage show aspect of this sketch as we think about them falling off a "real" mountain and make quirky jokes about their "tragic" fate of course. :D ;) :)

    Hehe yeah, it sure can be easy to get pretty weird and wacko in the midst of our crazy conversations sometimes! :D

    Those are some really good points that William made, too. I definitely agree with them as well. It's awesome getting our different opinions and thoughts about these sketches! But I still gotta say how much I love the Little Jerry and the Monotones sketch... it sure is perfect the way it is, just like our piggies sketch is, too! :)

    I sure do like your reply Caroline. And I agree both sketches are indeed perfect as they are meant to be.

    And what do you think of my change of location from Australia to what I've put now? Very appropriate for our wacky, wild atmosphere, isn't it? :D ;)

    :D :D

    I love your new location, Marty!! That is definitely perfect! Now as long as you're up there, try to make those silly evil goats behave, would ya? ;)
  11. Bill Bubble Guy

    Bill Bubble Guy Well-Known Member

    Oh yeah. I may come from the evil goats family but I'm not really like them at all as you know. ;)

    I'm the one good apple in the whole basket and I'll keep on witnessing and praying in order to make them all see that we should treat Happy Wandering piggies the way we would like them to treat us if we were in their position. :)

    Skye Well-Known Member

    Aww, I know we already know this about you, but you're the nicest evil goat there is! With you out there, convincing your buddies to go easy on those pigs, I know that every Happy Wandering piggy will be happily making it to the top of those mountains! :)
  13. Bill Bubble Guy

    Bill Bubble Guy Well-Known Member

    Yeah. And also back down again alive. Praise God.:halo: :) :excited:

    Skye Well-Known Member

    Hehe, why yes! That's pretty darn important too, isn't it! ;) Yay for them, I know they would be so grateful to such a nice goat like you! :)
