I don't know if this qualifies as Muppet news or not, but.. Playhouse Disney has just launched a new broadband internet service called "Playhouse Disney's Preschool Time." I guess it's sort of like an interactive TV show on the computer for kids. I put this here because it's hosted by Bear. Noel McNeal is voicing him. Every two weeks, there will be a different learning theme to the show, like this week it's "Braver Behavior": how to fight your fears. The reason I wasn't sure whether to put it on is, Bear is rendered in 3D. Good 3D, but still. You get a 7-day free trial by going to http://www.preschooltime.com, but you have to give them your credit card number. they won't charge you until you become a member, though. Well, that's the news.
