The Muppets on "I Love the 70s"

    The new VH1 show "I Love The 70s" began tonight and had more than one Muppet reference, including some comments from Mr. The Frog himself, Kermit.

    He first appears when they discuss "Sesame Street" which is during the first hour in 1970. Kermit popped up again in the second hour with a comment on "Wild Kingdom". He said that for a member of the wild kingdom, "Wild Kingdom" was like an adult film. He said his favorite was "Girls Gone Wild Kingdom".

    I suppose Kermit will pop up more during the 10 episode series, which airs on VH1 from 9-11 ET all this week and will be rerun a million times after that.

    The SS bit was great. It showed us a lot of 1970 clips we have never seen before, Like a Little Bird and Big Bird clip about the Letter A, and a clip of Bert in a blonde wig and Ernie in a farmer's uniform giving bert a peck on the cheek. :p :(

    My mistake. The first episode (1970) is the one with the Kermit "Wild Kingdom" joke.

    It'll be awesome once they get to 1976 when the Muppet Show premiered. I can't wait to hear what some of the other celebrities they've interviewed for the show will say about TMC.

    I really like how Kermit seems edgier. When he said "Girls Gone Wild Kingdom" I had to laugh.

    I wouldn't count on very freindly comments, especially on an "I Love" series (washed up stars criticizing nostalgia).

    I might have to second that. I muted my TV when they got to Mr. Rogers in the show on '71, because of the comments. They weren't nasty, but they weren't exactly kind either.

    Yeah, the SS bit wasn't too bad, a comment about Snuffy, the 'Gay' thing, And, can I call Lisa Marie Presley a bee-howtch here? I'm sure that's exceptional. :D ;)

    I saw 1972 yesterday and Kermit was pretty funny when they were talking about Kung-Fu and his imitation of the Godfather was funny as well. :)

    "Yeah, I remember Shrinky Dinks. They're still around today. But they have something for it now. It's called Viagra."

    That was funny. Thats the adult Kermit speaking for the comdiens. I laughed my butt off. Man never heard kermit talk that way but hey that was funny though.

    Kermit talked quite alot about The Muppet Show when they showed it on 1976 and they talked about how great it was and such. Also there was his impersonation of Rocky and he was kinda goofy while he was waving a flag when they were talking about America's birthday

    Yeah some of those "celebrities" they choose.....some of them it seems just do the specials for VH1. But I don't think I remember any negatory comments about the Muppet Show. It was kind of funny hearing the original Kermit voice intermingled with the new Kermit.

    I thought when Kermit was acting like 'Jaws' in the 1975 episode was particularly funny for some reason....

    1976 was a good year though: The Muppet Show, Charlie's Angels and ME!!

    I agree. I thought Kermit as Jaws was really amusing, too. I'm not sure why. I just did.

    Yea it was. At first when I saw preview about I love the 70's when they showed Kermit I thought it was some clip of the old Kermit singing about something so then when I saw it last night it sounded just like the old Kermit for some reason Steve is doing a better job over the years doing Kermit and hes acctally starting to sound just like Jims voice.

    The final segment of the 1979 episode was about The Muppet Movie. How cool is that!
