First off, before I go on my rant on why I can't stand Muppets these days, I will give credit to this site, for being a place where fans like myself can say whatever they want (within reason) about Muppets, whether it's good or bad. I'm sure we all truly appreciate this site as a place where we can feel comfortable sharing our feelings about something we all love. Furthermore, I'm personally thankful that Muppeteers don't spend every minute of the day seeing what we have to say (although I'm aware some of them show up on here, and have even posted a time or two) but the best thing is, if we fans say something negative, they can't talk back lol... So anyways, here I go. This is, of course, about the Muppets appearing on Disney this past week. And for those of you who can actually say you enjoy it, I got one thing to ask: Are you serious? Think about it. Over ten years ago, Henson pulled together a mediocre version of The Muppet Show with a nobody (Clifford) at the helm. You don't even see him in the shows or movies except Muppets From Space. And while it was a pretty sad excuse for a TMS2, it's not near as bad as what went down here recently. I've never even heard of Sweet Life with Zack and Cody till about a year ago when Lisa Simpson mentioned them on The Simpsons. Then a while later, I went to my cousins and saw some of my younger cousins watching the show (they are 4 and 9) and I personally couldn't stand it, especially the bellhop guy we saw talking to Kermit in the special. And Miley Cyrus? I honestly don't know what's worse; her singing or the fact her father's actually a 'celebrity' again. It's nothin but another Hillary Duff, people. Do you really want that? And to see her with the Electric Mayhem was painful. And what's with the new Animal puppet? It's a wreck, and doesn't even look much like him. The puppeteering was cringe-worthy too, not just the voices. If people think that those guys did a good job at impersonating and performing Janice, Floyd, Dr. Teeth and Animal, then the guy who plays Mickey Mouse at Disney World (who seems to have some really bad asthma) deserves an Oscar. I know Disney is a network geared towards younger people, and as for you younger fans on here, I'm glad you're supportive of the Muppets. But it seems as if the Muppets are continuing to dig themselves further into a hole. The Muppets worked with the best of the best between the 70's thru the 90's. I know that Sweet Life and Miley are for younger people, but us older fans who enjoyed Muppets saw them play to a wide demographic, with no age boundaries, and families, nomatter what the age, watched TMS together, and loved the characters, performers, writing and guest stars. Where's THOSE Muppets? The Muppets that REAL stars wanted to work with; not people like Whoopi Goldberg, David Arquette, and Brandy. Stuff like this makes me cringe. For those of you fans who are around my age and older, and can at least remember a time when TMS was on Nickelodeon, you can't tell me that what the Muppets have done, especially in the last 10 years, hasn't been below average, if not awful. I think it's just embarrassingly hilarious whenever I hear new statements from Henson come out, saying that, "We're wanting to appeal to adults in this next project as well as kids." It's a joke, and the Muppets are officially not good.
