    Wow! It's great seeing and hearing Rowlf sing again! Bill's doing a great job with him.

    So glad to see Rowlf part of the main core again. Been a long time coming! But yeah doesn't seem like that much Muppet stuff or news so far. I'm sure Muppetmindset will have a full rundown if any other stuff happened or products were shown

    Well, hey. Rowlf, Kermit and Piggy were there. That's something. Brian Henson will be in SF tomorrow along with Dave Goelz and Karen Prell so I'm not sure how much more Muppeting will go on this Saturday at D23. I think Bill is heading down for the Stuffed and Unstrung here too. They'll still have Kermit and Piggy at the convention I guess.

    Just watched the "I've Grown Accustomed to Your Face" video... I was rolling. That was hysterical. Is there a video of the original with Jim?

    Wow, Yorrick is back? Trippy! And they replaced Kermit with a yellow Fraggle lady? Very very cool surprise. Brian Henson is looking rather sexy and rugged the older he gets.While it'd be nice if Brian Henson could work in closer capacity with Disney for the Muppets(apparently his characters are MIA in the film), seeing him present at D23 is quite cool.

    And holy crap, Jamie is right...total Muppet legend invasion on two fronts in San Francisco...ugh, so wish I had gone this weekend instead of last

    Here's D23 honoring Jim Henson with a great video tribute and after the "Grown Accustomed" sketch Brian talks about some of his memories with Jim.

    Wow, they actually shot footage from the first season Raggmopp segment? I don't know if it appeared in the 60 Minutes behind-the-scenes appearance or Of Muppets and Men, but I find it odd that a first season segment had behind-the-scenes footage.

    "I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face" is available on any recording or soundtrack of the musical MY FAIR LADY.

    Also at the D23....

    Details of the Toy Story cartoon paired with The Muppets

    I call shenanigans... there hasn't been a toy story kid's meal since... uh... well, TS2... and even then, Buzz hasn't had once since Buzz Lightyear of Star Command... unless there was a Pixar heroes one years back. Cars was officially the last one to have anything with it.
