    Not sure why they changed the name from Puppet Up, but THIS is where Henson and Muppets belong: the big apple!

    Seems like they changed the name for marketing reasons. Maybe they found the word "puppet" in the title turned people off, maybe they wanted a fresh start so that audiences knew this wasn't a rerun of previous Puppet Up material, maybe the Puppet Up title is legally tied to different backters, maybe they just liked this name better. Whatever the reason, this looks like good stuff. I hope they travel to San Francisco. We'd love this!

    I'm guessing it's just a new "theme" the latest shows are built around; like a different opening number mainly plus new sketch categories, puppets, etc. Same format but new elements to keep it fresh.

    Puppet Up coming to NYC under a new name at the Union Square theatre. That's interesting, and it's arrival date of St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) makes it good material for a birthday present for a very important person, the person is question of course being myself, I'll see if I can get my wife to arrange this as a birthday present. :)

    they met when they were 17. i guess after 30 years or so, you can finish each others' sentences!

    Of course.

    I also Love Bill's Bobby Vegan character! Ya know he came from the Muppet character Howard Tubman from Muppets Tonight.

    totally...IMO, bobby is the funniest character to come around in a long time. samson isn't bad either, but he's the straight man...er, sorta...

    It would be nice if Bobby & Samson were in the Stuffed & Unstrung show on stage as well.

    They could probably introduce each show.

    that's so funny you say that. they WILL introduce the show. only "via satellite" on a big screen. the idea is that they're on vacation...i've seen a clip...should be a great intro.
