    Thanks for your rpely Chilly Down. I'm sure it said Massey on Muppet Wiki. Pepe is a hard one to get in my opinion and I wish I could have seen this!

    Muppet Wiki is a tremendous site. I wrote a personal letter to Danny Horn for his hard work with the others, and I reccomend everyone who enjoys the site do so as well, and thanks to all who contribute too.

    I've always been a fan of Danny's! I love all his writings on TP. And Scott's just cool as anybody could imagine. Always one of my faves from my MuppetFest trip! Never met Peter, but I can say that I wouldn't doubt he'd be as super cool as Danny and Scott.

    Now, with all the work they've put into Muppet Wiki, yet another reason for me to be their fan! :D

    Muppet Wiki is THE Muppets site! If it had streaming music & a forum, this site would be obsolete!

    Hee! I hear what you're saying, Marky. It really is great. It's probably just as well that it doesn't have a forum, though. The other sites need a chance to fill in some need in the Muppet fan community. And I think MC and TP both do that really well!

    I just got an e-mail that said Statler and Waldorf are going on a vacation, so the show is on hiatus.

    I wondered why there was no date for a next episode. Since tere is no defined date I wonder if it is on hiatus or if it's flat out canceled.

    I was wondering about this too, since the link from the main page is gone. I hope it will be back, but I hope even more that a "hiatus" means that the performers are needed for another, bigger Muppet project.

    This'll give me time to catch up on all the episodes I've missed! :sleep: :excited: :boo:

    ... (sigh). Remember the Alamo!

    Today's Disney is pulling the proverbial wings off of the Muppets.

    This is not me bashing them.
    This is not me trolling or flaming.
    This is an undeniable fact.

    We all know that this 'hiatus' means buh-bye.
    Another project bites the dust.

    That is a shame but I am not surprised. It says Drew Massey and Victor Yerrid on Muppet Wiki are in the Muppets Ahoy Show so that is probably a main priority before this.

    The new Waldorf is really bothering me!

    And I was just about to post that question!:p

    Only a matter of time before that sinks too, methinks.

    Well, it not like Steve nd Dave are horribly busy with muppet projects.

    I'm surprised that so many people are upset about this "hiatus." Disney kicked Steve and Dave out of their jobs and caused massive angry upheaveal in the Muppet fan community with a usually mediocre five-minute web show. I'm thrilled that it's on hiatus, and I hope it never comes back!

    I want to see Dave and Steve get their jobs back, and I want to see Victor and Drew -- two incredibly talented puppeteers -- get jobs in the next Muppet project that are worthy of their time...and ours.

    (And, yes, I know no one here was saying anything in favor of the bad things associated with FtB. I'm just pointing out that there are things to be happy about here as well!) :excited:

    Personally I wouldn't mind seeing Statler and Waldorf recast with new performers. I wasn't thrilled with Steve, Dave nor Victor Yerrid's character interpretations.

    However I do think Drew Massey did a fine job in the role.

    During the run of these S&W shorts, I learned that they were written by Jim Lewis and 2 freelance writers under his supervision. Lewis (as I was told) is not considered an employee of the MHC. I guess most writers wouldn't be.

    I know they are not, I'm speaking on behalf on Massey and Yerrid. If Disney were desperate to keep the show going, they would bring back Steve and Dave. ;)
