    Good one. XD
    It would be nice (even so lol) to see Frank Oz and Kevin Clash make a come back on The Muppets. :)
    Maybe it would be a good joke to have Gonzo try to get in on writing for Frank next movie lol! XD

    It could also be pretty cool for Joey Mazzarino to be on the show, since he's no longer working on Sesame Street.

    Yeah. :)
    And maybe it might be a good idea to have these on as Guest Stars - you know, and have funny moments like Walter asking them (Clash and Mazzarino) how to get to Sesame Street; and have Gonzo or Kermit hearing Oz's voice and saying that they recognize him from somewhere, but they don't know where lol. XD

    At this point, I can get the whole mulling it over if they're going to renew it or not, but if they just want to junk the show for another lame sitcom with a former Friends cast member (which is totally what we'll get) I'd rather them have the guts to come out and say it now instead of having us wait for the other shoe to drop. That's pretty much stringing us along at this point.

    Then we have the confirmed Muppet Courtyard in one of the Disney parks and the Disney store restocked Muppet toys from the first movie. They're sending mixed messages and I don't care for that.

    You know we're getting close to May, the Muppets courtyard thing has given be a sliver more hope, but we just have to wait and see what happens to the show.

    It's a fountain display in WDW Florida - my mum's been there a couple of times and she's seen it near the MuppetVision 3D show. :)
     
  11. I already sent a shout-out on my Tumblr blog "Oncie's Gal", a tribute to the 2012 Once-ler from the Lorax, which starred Ed Helms, who was a guest star on The Muppets' Season 1. Yeah, I totally have feelings for this guy, so no judgement? Maybe I'll tweet to ABC if they are renewing the Muppets or not. Or message them on Facebook. Either way, we ALL gotta SAVE THIS SHOW!

    So who's with me?

    We should hear about the fate of the show in early May, I'm really hoping it manages to pull a Galavant and get a second season despite low ratings.

    Haha oh man. What I wouldn't give to see / hear Frank performing Sam the Eagle again. Eric's great, don't get me wrong, but Frank was just SO brilliant as Sam, it's hard to top.

    Has there been any word on this show getting a Blu-ray / DVD release? Maybe they're waiting to see if it gets renewed for season 2, but I'd love to have season 1.

    It's not definite, but there is this article in Variety* which says, "Meanwhile, 'The Muppets' is primed for a renewal, despite ratings that continued to sag after a midseason showrunner change. Though execs have been 50/50 on bringing back the furry friends in recent months, sources say to expect another season."

    *It looks like the same article is in other places, too. I'm guessing this is the original, as it lists authors.
