    I'm not crazy about this. I'd rather see actual Muppets than animated ones. A friend sent me the link. Thoughts?

    SS+Anime=:confused:. It is an interesting idea though. I'm a fan of anime so i might try to see it.

    I wouldn't totally call that anime style as stark graphics... After all, Anime can look like This... but it can also look like this this , this or even this

    Personally, I'd see SS look sort of like Doraemon or Anpanaman or something if it were an anime...

    I haven't seen any art for this yet.

    Here you go:

    Elmo and Grover

    Yeah, it does have sort of a Super Deformer Japanese quality to it. But more of a Hello Kitty/Badtz Maru type quality to them.

    Thanks for sharing that. I think--HA HA.

    Wow--that's quite simplified art, isn't it? I just don't get why they're doing this instead of making something with the puppets instead.

    I'd much rather Muppeteers and Muppets doing the characters. Still, with the designs shown, I don't see it becoming more popular than the actual characters, so have no worries.

    I will say, I wouldn;t mind animated characters if they weren't Flash. not that I have anything against it... but I miss full motion in animation (or whatever came close to it for the past 20 years).

    I could see animated versions of the characters co-existing with the puppet ones (like Ernie and Bert's Great Adventures or Plaza Seasamo's 90's openings and closings). As long as they co-exist. I do like how they brought back Grover's Disco fever, but the Animal confessions bit is a lot better thought out and planned out.
