    It's a web series that was launched on The Nerdist Channel on April 2, 2012 and I just now found out about it several minutes ago while looking up Henson Alternative on Wikipedia, and it turns out that Henson Alternative started up in 2006, with Happytime Murders being H.A.'s first movie release, so I stand partially corrected.

    Brain should not have to bear the cross of his father, and the fact he's older now than Jim ever was. :eek: Jim seemed so much older than him.

    Back to the "No Sesame, All Street" thing... is it weird that I agree with both sides?

    The weird thing is if Sugar and Syrup is Drugs to puppets, I would hate to see what Alcohol is like for puppets.

    I just saw the Happytime Murders Today! Truth be told, It wasn't as bad as people were saying it was. I enjoyed it a lot. The only thing I wish the movie would've done was that they would give The Happytime Gang a bit of a backstory, at least see how an episode of That show would play out. Kinda like starting from the past before the movie cuts to present time.

    That's something I would have liked to have seen why the happytime gang originally ended.

    Just watched it with @Old Thunder and it wasn't half bad! Actually better than I expected. Sadly the climax wasn't INTENSE, but it was definitely enjoyable. I think this would be better classified as the JHC showcasing their new [revolutionary] puppetry techniques.

    So @gavry3 and I just saw the film, and I loved it. Yes, there's a lot of stuff that could be overkill, but as a whole the film works very well and the jokes are hilarious.

    Not too sold on McCarthy but she does have the best line in the whole film:

    "Why don't you sing us a song?"
    "Yeah, and it goes something like 'Mhmhmhm **** BOTH OF YOU'!"​

    I swear I was laughing for about five minutes.

    @Old Thunder I agree the line is underrated

    @gavry3 yes that does give a good insight into the show but never explains the reason behind the cancellation

    And this if you haven't seen the film is the opening song for the film

    well maybe if we get the Blu-Ray Release, there might be some extended scenes.

    Yeah, that movie’s gonna be awful. I can’t believe that Sesame Workshop lost the **** lawsuit. Long before this **** came out, I’ve HATED Melissa Manchester; she’s just a fat, ugly, not funny, untalented, annoying, selfish ***** & I wish she would leave show business forever.

    Hey Grouch Fanatic. Freedom of speech is a constitutional entitlement, but don't you think this is overstepping bounds with such extreme insults directed at the actress Melissa? And it isn't even Melissa Manchester who stars in the movie in question. She's Melissa McCarthy.

    Ayo... Too far.

    First of all it's Melissa McCarthy and secondly don't you think that's a bit extreme?
