    I don't like how disney just sat aside the muppets then suddenly all the muppets are coming back. I think it's good they brought the muppets back, but I wish they would have never sat the muppets aside, and tried life television.

    Thanks, DW! You just made my day, possibly my year!

    Anyone seen which other monsters have been rebuilt? (Or where to find the interview with Cooper in which he mentions Uncle Deadly?)

    There will be a new Pixar short film in front of The Muppets in theaters featuring the Toy Story characters. Use that information any way you want. Finally, a short playing before a movie I want to see! :)

    Yay! Toy Story! Muppets! Short! Film! Front! Theaters! Some good words that are good when put together in a paragraph!

    I wonder if the Toy Story short will include any Muppet toys. It'd be cool if some of the Palisades Toys were included (of course back when Palisades was producing Muppet toys I thought it'd be cool to see them in Toy Story 3... But I wonder if the time has past for such a reference).

    With the characters Gary, Mary, and Walter being Muppet fans, I wonder if Gary or Mary will be more conserative as fans, or less of fans than the others. Somehow I could see Mary only liking the Muppets because Gary does, or perhaps Gary not being as big a Muppet fan as he used to be, only going along with the plan to reunite them because of his friendship with Walter. And I noticed that the plot summary at Muppet Wiki referred to Walter as "the world's biggest Muppet fan", with Gary and Mary referred to as his friends... So it'll be interesting to see if Gary or Mary aren't really the Muppet fans they seem to be made out to be.

    I doubt it. This is a series of Toy Story shorts and isn't really connected to the Muppet movie in anyway. There's another Toy Story short coming out with Cars 2 in June and then the rest will probably be shown on Disney Channel or something.

    That said, this is the first time a Pixar short has been teamed with a live-action feature. On a non-Muppet related note this could be a sign of more shorts before movies if the Lamp has more of these film-based shorts coming.

    As a big fan of the full-bodied Muppets, I'm absolutely delighted that Thog has been rebuilt. Couldn't stop smiling for ages after I saw the photos. He looks a bit taller and maybe a bit thinner than he used to, although I'll wait until I actually see the movie to call judgement. Now, if only Doglion and Fletcherbird would appear too... then I might just start weeping in joy.

    I wonder if Matt Vogel will perform Uncle Deadly, since Vogel is now already performing a lot of Jerry's characters.

    Either that or maybe Jerry will loop Deadly's voice (if he can still do it, that is).

    Either way, we probably won't know until the release date gets closer.

    Matt Vogel is doing Uncle Deadly, yes.

    The only licensed character that was not already a famous brand toy in the Toy Story franchise was My neighbor Totoro, and that was an homage from Lassiter to Myazaki.

    The only Mickey was on a watch. Suffice to say, if Andy didn't have any Mickey, Goofy, or Winnie the Pooh toys, he probably wouldn't have Kermit or Piggy.

    On the other hand, he could be the owner of that Kermit T-shirt from that gnome movie, lol. :)

    Amen, brother. Amen.

    (Though DogLion was around for "Muppets Tonight". Has he been seen since?)

    I don't believe Doglion has been seen since 'Muppets Tonight', so he's been missing for well over a decade. That said, Thog has been missing for three decades, so maybe it's only right that he's the one to return :)
    As for the other full-bodied Muppets... Timmy was last seen in 'The Jim Henson Hour' I believe, Mean Mamma popped up in'The Ghost of Faffner Hall' back in the late 80s, Fletcherbird was last seen on a Royal Variety performance in 1993 and Betsy... well, she's been gone for three decades, just like Thog.
    Much as I'd love to see them all back, I'm 100% grateful that at least we've got Thog.

    ...of course if they shot a sequence that was planned in at least one of the drafts of the script, i think it's safe to say there will be a few other full-size monsters besides Sweetums and Thog!

    I hope Disney does it right with the mech side of the movie. I think the time is right for the Muppets to be huge again, if the movie is good and funny. GO MUPPETS!;)

    Now that made me laugh out loud! Im with beakie: it's people like you, the dedicated fans who know all about the muppets, they would benefit greatly from as writers.

    Since the new characters in this are Muppet fans and we expect a lot of inside jokes regarding Muppet fandom, I've thought of a cameo that would be funny, though I doubt it'll happen in this movie: Doug Walker of "The Nostalgia Critic" fame as Douchey McNitpick (The Nostalgia Critic's most obnoxious fan, seen in two videos counting down The Nostalgia Critic's top 11 mistakes), encountering the Muppets and pointing out continuity errors of the past ("How could you all have met for the first time as adults when you all lived in a nursery together as babies?").
