    I so excited and am dying to see Janice and Floyd's relationship dets and am really curious to know. I really hope they're still together being that gonzo from what we know so far is doing online dating and isn't with Camilla and Piggy is dating her co star Topher and Kermit is with Denise.

    I chose "personal lives" because I think that would cover romances also. I also hope we get some more of the personalities the Muppets had circa The Muppet Show and Muppet Movie. I am also looking forward to all the background
    action (Rizzo foraging etc) we saw in the pilot presentation.

    I hope we see a bit of the Newsman, because he is hilarious. I'm surprised that nothing hit him, or otherwise got him hurt during the pilot. I thought it was hilarious that he had said "In other related news, my shoes are filled with CAVIAR!!!!!" (*splitch/Splotch sounds come from his shoes while he's walking away"

    I wouldn't mind see the characters homes, also I wouldn't mind seeing some characters having a bigger role like Gonzo & Fozzie.

    I'm hoping for more electric mayhem! I'm hoping for Janice and Floyd's relationship to get stronger! I also want to hear more Zoot and Lips, since they have fewer lines.

    I want Skeeter and Emily Bear to make an appearance or two. I also want to see more on Rowlf's life.

    We just really need to see more from these characters like in TMS and the original trilogy of muppet films, and not have them say one line, and disappear. How about finding out Lew Zealand lives in a boat, or that Sam the Eagle is raising kids alone, stuff like this. Like how The Simpsons has been on for so long that even really minor characters have had moments and episodes centered around them.

    I want a cut-away with Lips and just as he's about to say something Zoot chimes in says something like " Man, don't you ever shut up!"

    I hope that the series proper manages to keep Chip around as a running gag. I loved watching the pitch and all, I thought it was funny and stuff, but nothing cracked me up like Chip randomly questioning, "Was I in Muppet Treasure Island?"

    Given he's the likeness of the creator, it seems entirely possible.

    I heard that Bill Prady said that the show can have any possible Muppet character appear. I guess he means any Muppet character that Disney owns the rights to, but I wonder if he also means any obscure character whose puppet is still useable, or if they will rebuild any obscure characters if the need arises.

    Suddenly I feel like it would be great if there was an official list of all Muppet characters whose puppets are in good enough shape to be used. Judging from the last two movies, it seems like most of the Muppets Tonight/Muppet Treasure Island-era puppets are still in good enough condition (though there are quite a few who we haven't seen since that era, like Bill the Bubble Guy, Seymour, A. Ligator, Gary Cahuena, Snokey Bloir...).

    I think the only minor characters from the Simpsons not to have their own episodes are Larry and Sam (the barflies seen in the background at Moe's), Leopold, Apu's brother, and Squeaky-Voiced Teen.

    Bill Barretta said on Facebook when someone asked about Johnny and Sal appearing, that Johnny and Sal would have to be rebuilt.

    It strikes me as odd that those puppets are "toast," while Chip is almost a decade older and is in semi-functional condition, as well as other MT and Mopatop-refurbished characters used in the movies.

    Yeah I agree its super odd.

    I was mainly referring to MT/MTI-era puppets that hadn't been used for a long time and then were suddenly seen again in recent productions. Johnny Fiama and Sal continued to be used again constantly for six years after MT ended, so they would be worn out.

    With Chip, though he does look a little worn, he was only in two scenes on The Jim Henson Hour and wasn't really used much, though he was seen in the background quite a bit in the late-1990s. Hmm, I wonder how many other JHH characters can be used again. I wouldn't be surprised if Bean or Clifford would need to be rebuilt by now, but I wonder about the condition of little-seen characters like Anthony, Fern, Ubu, Codzilla, and Merlin's Assistant.

    Yeah that's probably what happened. I would love to see Ubu and Codzilla used again too!

    I wonder if they'll incorporate any creature shop Muppet characters, like they did during the JHH, Mother Goose, Faffner Hall era. They didn't always work that great visually together but the effects those puppets could pull of were spectacular!

    Here's hoping the new series finds a way to bring Digit, Flash, Clifford, Bean and even Lindberg back to the Mupepts troupe!

    I really hope we get to see more of Johnny Fiama and Sal Minella who are probably one of my favorite duo, and I wonder if we will get to see Clifford or any other muppets in the show.
