    I know i would love to see it. Don't let someone tell you what they want. You do what you want. I know it seems that way to ask but people didn't ask to have a Puppet Musical like Avenue Q. Did they?

    I want to see it and i'm already enjoying the script you wrote. I hope to see more to come. Keep up the wonderful job.

    And I'm not too fond of seeing Muppet-like characters using MTV-style humor (ex: Internet is for Porn), for it unnerves me, hence why I am not ever seeing that show.

    I haven't seen it only have the soundtrack. But it's still pretty funny. But i understand and it is very weird to hear those things coming from a puppet. Don't worry it was not really all that great to me when i first heard these songs but i got used to it.

    It's not just weird...it's disturbing.

    Certainly Henson--were he alive & as adult as some of his programs were--wouldn't have made his programs blatant and idiotic like the MTV-style humor does via repeated swears, obvious sexual situations, constant butt jokes that've been done years before by superior shows that were more subtle in their delivery, and other garbage that is--quite frankly--not all that funny, IMO.

    Perhaps it is because my childhood had quality shows that were not only enjoyed by children, but were enjoyed by adults as well (ex: Animaniacs! and The Disney Afternoon), that I cannot stand modern potty humor, but whatever...*shakes head*

    It's a generational thing, and I know for sure that my future children will not be watching any of the 1996 to present corporate drivel aired on TV nowadays (except a small handful).

    They would be watching vintage Disney (vintage Mickey, Winnie the Pooh, etc.), retro Henson (The Muppets, classic Sesame Street, & Fraggle Rock), old school Nick (the original Nicktoons like Rugrats, primetime shows like Pete and Pete, gameshows like What Would You Do, and SNICK with things like All That), and the like.

    Don't get me wrong but i watched everyone one of these shows growing up. And enjoyed them with a passion. So i don't mind potty humor but it's still no laughing matter. But i understand where your coming from and i agree with you.

    Then why do people nowadays get such a laugh from it? On top of that, how shows like "Robot Chicken"--that take blatant shots at pop culture fabric--get Emmys is beyond me.
    Glad we see eye to eye on this. I just feel there's a time and place for "adult" humor and places like Avenue Q which use Muppet-like characters are definately not it!

    Looks like the makers of that were happily deranged when it was made, knowing it might **** people off.

    PERFECT HARMONY
    Marjory; I can almost see a world of harmony.
    Music in the air,
    Friendship everywhere,
    Ties of love uniting you and me.

    Mokey; Babies everywhere,
    Junior; In their underwear,
    all three; All the world aware,
    We can truly care,
    Ties of love uniting you and me.

    Why not have VEE Corperation make the costumes? They are pretty pricey but your'e getting your money's worth!

    Just as long as it remains faithful to the franchise, it doesn't matter to this fan what is used.

    Good luck!

  18. Did you seriously just do that? Not everybody likes your ideas. Do you think when Jim said he wanted to do a show with Puppets everybody said. Wow why didn't we think of that? What an idea! No. Don't give up just because a few people tell you its not the best ide. I for one see the up's and down's of it. But if it happens good for you, i'd see it! I'd probably audition! But if you are going to react like that when something goes wrong than yes. Maybe you shouldn't make it. You need to be strong when taking on something new.

    Yeah, but that doesn't mean everyone must gang up on that person's idea. Personally, I was only against it, because I wouldn't want it to end up like Disney's Underdog...as a spat on the legacy of the original series (in this case, the beloved series, Fraggle Rock [regardless of it being puppeteered or animated]).

    I kinda of liked the updated verison. It's seem pretty hip and all. I understand everyone likes things to stay the way they are but not everything can. So i'll go see it when i get a chance no matter what anyone says about it.
