    I love this site! And it includes so many great characters! I have to explore some more...

    Woo hoo! It's up, it's up! I hadn't followed the recent discussion, but I checked the site randomly to see how long the countdown was. I'm gonna go play!

  4. Not only did they not us 3d animation, THEY USED ACTUAL LIVE MUPPETS! Kermit and Rizzo in the begining are great and I think I saw Gonzo there too. The set up is great. I didn't expect something like this. My guess is this was the old plan (or close to it) that was tought up back when there was suppose to be a real Muppets Studios that became MGM. Perhaps it is a sign that there will be a new addition to the theme park.
  5. Ok wait. I can;t play any of the games. What's the deal?

    oh, it appears therre is another new logo. This time purple letters instead of green and a nicely drawn KErmit at the top.

    A lot of the links do not seem to be working for me... Is anyone else having this problem? Like in Club Mayhem and the Soundstage? I love the use of real Muppets, I think that I have seen Kermit, Rizzo, Gonzo, and Miss Piggy.

    I also really like the inclusion of characters such as the newsman. It makes me very happy that they have included Scooter, Rowlf, and the Electric Mayhem in the bios section. Hopefully eventually they will add a few more characters, such as Robin, Sweetums, Beau, and Lew Zealand.

    Miss Piggy's column is very funny - it reminds me of the good old days when Muppet magazine was on the shelves.

    I love the penguins at Club Mayhem, but it was a bit disappointing that Zoot is not on stage with the band, unless I missed it... I also like Sam's section with the bios - the pictures all move. (and if you click on the picture with Jim Henson, it shows a quote which is really nice)

    Overall, the site seems to be great and I cant wait to explore some more...

    I think they new site is great, even though some of the things are quite working yet. But it is a very neat site, and I am glad it turned out good, so maybe some of the Disney-bashers would ease up a bit.
  8. If you go to the lounge Fozzie should pop up. It looks like a new Fozzie puppet too. It looks really good. I do love Eric's Fozzie. Animal shows up in the Mayhem Club. He comes off stage and pops up in front of you in real live puppet form like the others. The design for this site is fantastic.

    I'm guessing the links do not work because they just haven;t finished the sections yet. It's possible that the muppet performers haven't been available to do the voices or perhaps it's just a technical glitch. I'm sure it will be fixed. As for Zoot, maybe there wasn't a good shot of him to use, or perhaps he runs Muppet Records (which isn't up yet).

    I liked the Jim Henson quote as well. Very nice. I think this is a good sign. A well rounded choice of characters.

    Hey! The site is gone again... I tried to visit it again and it said that they will be up again shortly. Maybe they are fixing the links that were not working...

    You mean you're in??? Anyway the links aren't working for anyone right now. Or so it seems.

    Strange that it's down again, but they probably just want to work the bugs (and rats and chickens and things) out. I'm still really excited by how cool the site is!

    hey! what the heck? i even tryed goin back in and it sayed "we'll be launching back very soon". Man... i hope they dont mean another week!

    Over all from what I seen it was GREAT! the live Muppets and not that 3D stuff. Loved it!!! The store had some Muppet DVDs like Muppet Family Christmas and a Best of Muppet Show dvd? humm... maybe Disney re-released em?! I loved how Miss Piggy popped up in the store lol. and the Pic with Jim & Kermit was great lil tribune. I also liked the NEW Muppets logo, with the 3D kermit, yeah i was gonna say wasn't the "Muppet Studio" thing an idea from Jim back then when him and Disney tryed merging back in the 90s? Love it so far A+A+A+A+ on my part
  15. The good news is there is not another counter, or maybe that's the bad news. It's a very complex site and it probably got hit wioth more traffic than expected. I think it will be back within the week, if not the day.
  16. And it's back up with working links this time. Or at least the Muppet Wizard of Oz link worked. i haven't gone in to the "park" yet.

    The muppet remix game uses the head of the MEga Gonzo figure for it's picture of Gonzo. That's odd.

    Why not? It looks enough like Gonzo.

    I love the site. The new guys definetely know what they're doing. Beautiful graphics, subtle comedic details, and overall making a site that appeals to you superfans and to innocent little toddlers who've never heard of these characters before. The future superfans.

    Disney's definetely keeping their promises here, and I eagerly wait for updates. Emphasis on eagerly. I have a tent set up by my computer.

    P.S.: I laughed. Out. Loud. When I saw the Mayhem with iPods.

    haha... i dont know IF any ones been on the Muppet Bios page. but its funny :) When you get to Bobo's page it says his favorite movie is "County Bear Jamboree" lol :D

    Fozzie: Thats what we call a Disney joke

    Waldorf: No...thats what we call a Diz-mal joke! Doh HA HA HA

  20. You can read those bios? I can't. They're fuzzy and small. I do love the wall paper and stuff and the way it's set up and you can't beat live muppets. I mean, LIVE MUPPETS! Not even the Jim Henson Compnay did that with their site. I see no reason to complain. If you want more info go the Muppet Central, if you want cool graphics and some fun games Muppets.com is the place.
