    Yes, I received yours and those from others as well. I will write back concerning the games as soon as possible.

    Thank you, Phil. I really appreciate the way that you handled this. You responded immediately to the problem, and took care of it right away.

    I want to echo what Phil said about how to deal with harassing e-mail. If anybody gets anything like that from somebody at Tough Pigs, I'd like to know about it immediately, so I can make it stop.

    Both Tough Pigs and Muppet Central are here for people to relax, and to connect with their friends. It makes me sad that there are a few people who try to use our boards to prey on others.

    Andy really is a scary, menacing guy, who is desperately in need of help. He's sent serious threats to a number of people over the last couple years. I don't want to scare people, because I don't think he actually has the courage to do any physical harm. But he's not the kind of person that we'd want to have around. If anybody finds out that Andy (aka Don_Music_2004) has come back under a new screen name, please let either Phil or me know, so he can be removed.

    Thanks again, Phil.

    On behalf of all non-scary Andys, I'd like to thank you for being specific there.

    My brother-in-law's name is Andy. He's kinda weird. But yes. Don't let one Andy spoil the whole bunch. Buncha Andys. Bunchandys. Bunchdys.

    She does realize that there's people in there 30's and 40's that still watch cartoons too?! And they're not watching it with their children either!

    Fraggle Rock is a just a show. I still like watching the Muppets and i'm 22. But my parents don't care. There's worse things you can be watching than fraggle Rock, like reality t.v. or a Britney Spears music video.....

    Now that would be just scary .... :smirk:

    I would have thought the ol' Muppets are for kids argument would have been mooted somewhat by the nostalgia/cult television revival but shows what i know, as is apparent from this thread.

    That's probably why I like to watch the Muppets and other interesting television shows because you just can't get that type of quality now a days. There maybe a few shows here and there that are great like Frasier or 24, but a lot of today's are not that interesting....Heck I still like to watch old cartoon shows like the Real Ghostbusters because it's still a great cartoon. Nothing wrong with some harmless entertainment!

    Well dude it is kinda of weird for a 30 year old man to been into a puppet show. Its ok to watch, but its time to find other things in life to get wrapped into. But I could care less what you do. Make it your world.

    sadly, even tho there is that 'college kid cool' factor, anything JH related is seen as baby stuff(even dark crystal or labyrinth) to most people...and yeah, that Disney thing aint gonna help either.

    Its too bad when people lose their sense of imagination or wodner...those are the people that need psychiatric help.

    I know that I never really want to go through that process commonly known as "Growing up". It's not what it sounds like...

    I think it's ridiculous for someone to look down on someone else for something they like, especially on that level. I get a lot of ridicule from my friends (mostly just jokingly, though) for liking the Muppets because I'm usually very outward with it. Why should it matter?
    In the same respect, I think it's equally "immature" for someone to like video games. I just don't understand why Muppet fans get made fun of more.
    There's no reason for any of that.

    scarylarrywolf Well-Known Member

    Exactly! Video games and sports are no more "immature" than puppets. They are all some of the first things that grab children's attention, and somehow puppets don't ordinarily continue to carry that attention throughout a person's life. :smirk:

    Exactly, except video games and sports don't take as much skill than puppetry!

    Has she ever sat down to actually watch a few of them? My mom did in the 80's so she understands.

    You know what, im 22 and love the Muppets, your only 15, wait tell your over 25 and see if you just decide to stop liking something because your older! Its not going to happen! Name me one of the Muppet Puppetiers who are younger than 30? Also the muppets have meen around for 0ver 25 years so if your 30 it only gives you more of an excuse to like them because they have been with you your whole life! The Muppet Show wasn't a kids show, it was aimed for older people! What kid whould know who Peter Sellers is, or Rackelle Welch, Paul Simon, Danny Kaye, Linda Ronstant?

    OK, you've got me there i never said there anything wrong with liking muppets. Its weird when some people are adults and become too wrapped up into a puppet show.It seems like their life is just big cartoon and everythings made out of marshmellows. :sleep:
