The Muppet Movie Crowd Scene

    Does anyone have an HQ picture of the crowd scene and a list of every Muppet that was in the finally? I know it's kind of far fetched and sounds easier said than done but I've recently heared that some rare Muppets where in there like The Land of Gorch Muppets and even the Emmit Otter Jugband Christmas Muppets. Which is surprising news to me and I tried to look for them when I seen the scene but couldn't find them. I know there's a lot of The Muppet Show and Sesame Muppets in there. How many characters were in that scene? I remember hearing that Jim hired a bunch of extra puppeteers from The Puppeteers of America to help out, and I think seen a few behind the scenes pictures somewhere on the internet which Jim directing rehearsal and the floor is numbered and stuff.

    I don't think we'll see the light of day of a huge Muppet reunion anytime soon due to all the copyright switches within the back few years with Muppets going to Disney, Sesame owned by Sesame and Fraggle Rock still with Henson. But technically that's how Jim planned it before he passed.
    However wasn't there something at the Music Hall, some tribute to Jim Henson where all the characters came back together in the first time in years? If anyone has a DVD copy of that, HD, send me a PM and we'll do a tape trade. :)

    I heard there is an HQ picture of the crowd shot in the book "The Art of The Muppets". But that book is very hard to find these days, and I doubt anyone out there has it.

    Yep, there is a shot in the book. The caption for the photo says: "The climactic scene, 160 puppeteers and almost every Muppet ever made."

    As for the tribute to Jim Henson that was at Carnegie Hall a few months ago. It wasn't taped so you won't be seeing a DVD release. Although there are some clips of it on YouTube. They didnt allow photos or video but obviously that didn't stop some fans. Lol.

    I CAN FINALLY SEE THE LAND OF GORCH MUPPETS LOL all the way Left top side lol That is funny how they managed to get in there. Then again they did get fired off of SNL and were looking for work since. lol I think I see Windle from Emmet Otter under Vash. lol Big Bird with Big Mama. lol No way he's going to get eaten. He's bigger than she is. I looked at my art of The Muppets book and the picture in there isn't the full one you see here but I can still see the SNL Muppets in it. I'll be sending the picture to the member who requested it. :)

    I never knew Beauregard was in this. Also, I think spy Louis Kazagger over by the purple female Whatnot near the statue prop

    I just noticed the Can Can rats from the Steve Martin episode of Muppet Show. So basicly, all Muppet Show muppets from season 1 to mid season 3 were present. Also, why is Uncle Deadly on the Sesame Street side next to Grover?

    Not only is Uncle Deadly over on the Sesame Street side of the room, but so are Mahna Mahna and the Snowths next to Biff and Sulley.

    To anyone who has been able to find Louis Kazagger in the crowd of muppets:
    Can you tell me where he is in the crowd of muppets so i can pause the movie the next time i watch it and try to find where he is?

    I think I finally found Herbert Birdsfoot in this shot!!! Right next to Sherlock Hemlock and Sully on the extreme right. (And right below Harvey Monster.)
    (Yay! Glad to see confirmation of Kermit and Herbert sharing at least one scene together for the record. lol)
