    1. Not really. However, I have seen Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood's live shows in person, if that counts.
    2. The Brady Bunch. Don't really have a favorite character as I didn't watch the show much.
    3. I don't know at the moment.
    4. Childhood: Pretty much all of second grade. Moved to our current house that year, I played lots of video games, first got into Cartoon Network, watched a lot of video tapes and got into recording shows...it was a wonderful time of my life back then. Teenage: Getting my driver's permit at 14 and making it into varsity show choir in 11th grade, to name a couple.
    5. Getting rid of a bunch of things at our house, and organizing my bedroom and closet.
    6. Hard to decide.
    7. Visit the Sesame Street set and meet at least one Muppeteer.
    8. Movies: Toy Story 3, Brave, Liar Liar. Songs: "Midnight, the Stars and You," "Little Things," "Wind Beneath My Wings"
    9. My Panasonic VCR/TV. :)
    10. Discovery Zone, then Chuck E. Cheese's, then this local family rec center where I had all my birthdays until it closed a few years ago.

    Same here, but I've also seen Jerry Seinfeld and Bob Newhart on separate occasions, not to mention the numerous musical artists I've seen over the years from Weird Al to Hall & Oates to Earth, Wind & Fire.

    7. If you had the opportunity to spend the day eating cookies with Cookie Monster, flying with Super Grover, listening to weather reports with Bert, coloring with Elmo, or doing magic with Abby, which would you choose?
    8. Pick a performing duo: Jim Henson and Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson and Richard Hunt, Steve Whitmire and Eric Jacobson, Joey Mazzarino and David Rudman, or Matt Vogel and Marty Robinson

    1. Of course, I've actually been anticipating her to eventually become a Muppet since her creation for storybook and web material.
    2. So far so good, not too many complaints.
    3. Yes, this should be most interesting.
    4. Considering Key and Peele were instrumental in those SST parody skits on MADtv (Key being Gordon and Peele being Big Bird), that would be interesting to see.
    5. The retro redesign of Hooper's - particularly the neon sign.
    6. Either the Arbor area, or removing Big Bird's construction doors.
    7. All of the above. I mean hey, if I got to spend a day on SST, I would cram in as much as I could.
    8. As great as they all are together, Jim and Frank are perhaps the ultimate dynamite duo.
    9. PIRATE RADIO. Just imagine: Cookie works for a radio station that's operated by a bunch of pirate AMs! Scurvy!
    10. Uncle Lou.

    1. Yeah! Since her introduction a while ago, I've been pumped for when she would finally become a Muppet, and she did.
    2. I haven't watched it, but it seems to be rolling along fine. I like that Zoe's gotten more screentime again.
    3. Yes...I am curious to see how it will go, especially with the voice cast and computer animation instead of 2D.
    4. N/A
    5. If you mean from a couple years ago, giving Hooper's Store the retro look with the classic black-and-yellow checkerboard pattern.
    6. Pre-2015: Removal of the Around the Corner set. Post-2015: Relocating Oscar's trash can.
    7. Fly with Super Grover. I mean, what's better than having the ability to fly and take to soaring heights, exploring the world from an amazing perspective?
    8. Ditto what D'Snowth said. Although, I particularly love seeing Caroll Spinney and Marty Robinson perform together.
    9. Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Or make that "Cookie Monster's Day Off."
    10. What?

    1. Yes it's nice
    2. Pretty good and I am surprised at the cameos we have been getting
    3. No really
    4. Call me weird but I would like to see Seth McFarland
    5. Retro Hoppers store
    6. The community center or The laundromat sign
    7. Eating cookies with Cookie Monster
    8. Steve and Eric
    9. The Nightmare Before Christmas
    10. Mac

    I actually did mean as of Season 46, but if we're going to go that route as well, a favorite set change of mine pre-2015 was the addition of the Mail-It Shop: not that I didn't like the ol' familiar Fix-It Shop, but the Mail-It Shop brought a nice updated feel to the street that gave it just a little more realism - especially with its neon signs and everything.

    Least favorite would have to be either the way they redesigned the carriage house for Season 39, or when the whole set looked too clean and too antiseptic during the ATC era.

    1. Are you excited about Julia officially being a Muppet? I don't really care. Sure I guess? :p
    2. What do you think of Season 47 so far? Watched 0% of it. :p
    3. Are you looking forward to the Muppet Babies reboot? No, but DuckTales on the other hand... :p
    4. What other contemporary celebrities would you like to see alongside the Muppets? Iron Maiden. Wait, they're not really contemporary... screw it, Iron Maiden. :p
    5. What's your favorite change to the SST set? Um... I dunno. :p
    6. Least favorite? See above. :p
    7. If you had the opportunity to spend the day eating cookies with Cookie Monster, flying with Super Grover, listening to weather reports with Bert, coloring with Elmo, or doing magic with Abby, which would you choose? Cookies with C.
    8. Pick a performing duo: Jim Henson and Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson and Richard Hunt, Steve Whitmire and Eric Jacobson, Joey Mazzarino and David Rudman, or Matt Vogel and Marty Robinson Jim and Frank
    9. What movie should have been a Crumby Picture? IDK
    10. What's behind the big blue blob? I only know The Blob. :p

    1. Are you excited about Julia officially being a Muppet? Yes, extremely excited!
    2. What do you think of Season 47 so far? I've enjoyed it. It's a big improvement over last season.
    3. Are you looking forward to the Muppet Babies reboot? Definitely. I'm just excited for the Muppets to be on TV again, and that kids will get introduced to the characters. Slightly unrelated but, with DuckTales coming back, can they please bring back Darkwing Duck?!?
    4. What other contemporary celebrities would you like to see alongside the Muppets? Hm, definitely Tom Hanks, because Tom Hanks is perfect. Maybe Emma Stone or Bill Murray too.
    5. What's your favorite change to the SST set? I really love what they did with the arbor for season 46.
    6. Least favorite? Least favorite ever? Well, I wasn't a big fan of them getting rid of the construction doors in front of Big Bird's house, but I understand why they did it.
    7. If you had the opportunity to spend the day eating cookies with Cookie Monster, flying with Super Grover, listening to weather reports with Bert, coloring with Elmo, or doing magic with Abby, which would you choose? All of the above :) but, maybe minus the flying. I kind of hate heights.
    8. Pick a performing duo: Jim Henson and Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson and Richard Hunt, Steve Whitmire and Eric Jacobson, Joey Mazzarino and David Rudman, or Matt Vogel and Marty Robinson Oh that's definitely gotta be Frank and Jim.
    9. What movie should have been a Crumby Picture? Beauty and the Beast! I mean c'mon, it would've been perfect. You could have Cookie as the beast learning to control himself, Prairie Dawn could be Belle, and you could have various other major characters as the talking furniture and dishes, etc. Ooh, I see an idea for a fan fiction brewing :)!
    10. What's behind the big blue blob? The bear in the big blue house.

    Heh, I used to kind of ship Cookie and Prairie when I was younger, lol.
     
  13. Pig's Laundry

    Pig's Laundry Well-Known Member

    Well, in the context of this, I wasn't really thinking in a shippy kind of way.I think there's a way to do it without them falling in love.
    But, yeah, I still ship them, lol.

    I know Lindsey Stirling (with Josh Groban) did a video with the Classic Muppets for YT, but I still would love to see her dance up a storm on SST.

    1. Best film you've seen in the last six months?
    In the theatre: Rogue One. At home: Kubo and the Two Strings.

    2. What upcoming film are you most excited about?

    I wasn't really interested in the new Thor flick until I learned that Taika Waititi is directing. Loved What We Do in the Shadows.

    3. What superhero movie, in your opinion, has done the best job of staying true to the characters/comics/source material?

    Deadpool.

    4. Worst superhero movie so far?

    There's a long list of DC comics ones...but Batman & Robin is the worst.

    5. If you could greenlight a new Muppet film, what would the plot be?

    The Newsman discovers a plot by Muppet monsters to subjugate the world...wait...

    6. Who would you get to direct it?

    Joss Whedon or Taika Waititi.

    7. Would you ever want to see a Muppet film mashup with another Disney-owned franchise (Marvel, Star Wars, etc) - why or why not? (Big-screen, folks. I KNOW we've already had Hamill Himself and :concern:)

    Though a cameo here or there might be amusing, I don't feel that these universes really mesh well. To me, any attempt would feel very forced.

    8. What movie still makes you laugh whenever you watch it?

    Cabin in the Woods.

    9. What film makes you cry whenever you watch it?

    The Room. Kidding. I haven't been moved to tears by a film in a long time, but there were moments in Kubo and in Logan where I did feel very somber.

    10. What film would you never see again no matter what bribe was offered you?

    I can't conceive of ever sitting through Dick Tracy again. Or Red Zone Cuba.

    Don't usually answer these, but this one I'll partake.

    1. Best film you've seen in the last six months?
    Haven't seen many films lately, though there've been some I wanted to watch.

    2. What upcoming film are you most excited about?
    Thor 3: Ragnarock to see how they handle the end-of-world scenario; and Coco, I've been waiting for two years for that one.

    3. What superhero movie, in your opinion, has done the best job of staying true to the characters/comics/source material?
    Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy from 2004-2012.

    4. Worst superhero movie so far?
    Agreed, DC's not faring well here... Batman vs Superman was a joke, at least by the trailer they aired for the home movie channel.

    5. If you could greenlight a new Muppet film, what would the plot be?
    Something like The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made, along the lines of Gonzo and Fozzie and Kermit in a Muppety version of Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

    6. Who would you get to direct it?
    Since Gary Marshall's gone, how about his sister Penny?

    7. Would you ever want to see a Muppet film mashup with another Disney-owned franchise (Marvel, Star Wars, etc) - why or why not? (Big-screen, folks. I KNOW we've already had Hamill Himself and :concern:)
    If done right, yes, I know there've been some ideas for a Muppet homeworld in Kingdom Hearts, it could work if they did a Muppets + Disney/ToonTown crossover.

    8. What movie still makes you laugh whenever you watch it?
    Erg, My Cousin Vinnie.

    9. What film makes you cry whenever you watch it?
    Moments of three from Robin Williams: What Dreams May Come, Patch Adams, and Bicentennial Man.

    10. What film would you never see again no matter what bribe was offered you?
    The original version of Willie Wonka starring Gene Wilder. :scary:

    2. What upcoming film are you most excited about?
    Thomas & Friends: Journey Beyond Sodor ( :p ) and Cars 3. Oh, and Raw, which is a Belgian horror film I'd like to get my hands on if that's possible.

    3. What superhero movie, in your opinion, has done the best job of staying true to the characters/comics/source material?
    I've only seen The Dark Knight so don't ask me. :p

    4. Worst superhero movie so far?
    See above.

    5. If you could greenlight a new Muppet film, what would the plot be?

    The ghost of Jim Henson.

    7. Would you ever want to see a Muppet film mashup with another Disney-owned franchise (Marvel, Star Wars, etc) - why or why not? (Big-screen, folks. I KNOW we've already had Hamill Himself and :concern:)
    IDK

    9. What film makes you cry whenever you watch it?
    IDK

    What's this, the government wants my answers AGAIN?!? Well, your not gettin' a peep outta me! No sir! :attitude:
    Eh, alright, fine, i'll bite...

    1. Best film you've seen in the last six months?

    The last six months? Unfortunately most of the films i've seen have been recent animated films, and while most of them haven't been bad they didn't really impress me all that much. Hopefully 2017 is a return to form.

    2. What upcoming film are you most excited about?

    Spider Man:Homecoming. Finally, a Spider Man movie without the origin story! And if we're talking movies after this year, i'm really looking forward to that new Sesame Street movie, if it really is still happening.
    3. What superhero movie, in your opinion, has done the best job of staying true to the characters/comics/source material?
    Hmmm, not sure. I've mostly just seen movies from the MCU.

    4. Worst superhero movie so far?

    DC comics. That's it, that's all I have to say... just, DC.

    5. If you could greenlight a new Muppet film, what would the plot be?

    It would be entitled "Bunny Quest", and it would be about Animal saving hundreds of bunnies from Big Mean Carl.

    6. Who would you get to direct it?

    Frank Oz, and he can play Animal in it too!

    7. Would you ever want to see a Muppet film mashup with another Disney-owned franchise (Marvel, Star Wars, etc) - why or why not? (Big-screen, folks. I KNOW we've already had Hamill Himself and :concern:)

    'The Muppets Meet Howard the Duck' ;)

    8. What movie still makes you laugh whenever you watch it?

    Fantastic Mr. Fox

    9. What film makes you cry whenever you watch it?

    I haven't come very close to crying during a film since I saw the ending to Toy Story 3 in theaters.
    10. What film would you never see again no matter what bribe was offered you?
    Can't think of any off the top of my head. However, I have seen some pretty boring kids movies before. I'll watch any bad movie you want me to, as long as it's not dull.
