Then search for "good luck charlie canada schedule" or something. That's what google is for
What's google? )
But seriously, I searched it earlier and only found Family as a result. Hopefully the episode will be online the next day>
This may help, they should post full episode here. http://www.tvmuse.eu/tv-shows/Good-Luck-Charlie_24994/season_4/episode_1/
Well after the episode airs on TV that is
I'm kind of wondering if someone had to fill in for Steve (and he looped Kermit's voice later on).
i thought so too..
I don't get why people are saying this is for a younger audience. The Muppets are about bridging the gap between children and adults. They're not supposed to be dumbed down for a stupid tween show.
These appearances are meant to appeal to fans of the show they are on, not necessarily that they are "dumbed down" to do it.
Something can be aimed to a different audience and not be "dumbed down." Look at Studio DC. The Muppets still acted somewhat like themselves, but the show was aimed for younger audiences.
That's Steve doing Kermit live, not dubbed. I think he might be using his left hand for the head for some reason, which would explain any wonkiness and why Kermit seems to be primarily moving his right arm.
Of course we fans know that the Muppet Show was created as a prime time program for adults and the Muppets are supposed to be for all audiences.
That said, the marketplace is much different than it was in 1976. Children drive the market now more than ever and not enough of them have the connection with the Muppets that we do. Today's audiences don't often channel surf outside of their own comfort zones either. This means that the Muppets must continue to appear on all sorts of relevant programming, specifically those geared to younger audiences.
However, that does not mean they should be lobotomized and I don't think they have been from the clips I've seen. I think Disney's doing a good job forming and maintaining connections with the Muppets. My only gripe is that they need more Muppet merchandise in stores. More kids like the Muppets, the more products we'll see.
This appearance is a good thing.
I'd say it's about time to start viral videos again or some sort of TV special by the time the movie comes out. A Tweeny show that only tweens watch is a good way to give them exposure to tweens (and frankly, I'll accept them on a tween show before I even acknowledge they were on The Botulism er... Bachelor), but at the mean time, we'd like something too. No doubt that by the time the movie comes out, The Muppets will have many more appearances in shows of cross generational appeal.
But I agree. We need a better merchandising presence. For the million billionth time, I don't understand how the line of plush toys at Disney sold out in a holiday shopping season, and barely got restocked, let alone new products. I guess they're saving it for the next film.
Now that the show is on, we're moving the discussion here.
