    Yes for Yes! I love Time And A Word, the way the orchestrations blend with the guitar parts are killer. Best songs are the title track and "Astral Traveller", IMO.

    When were the Muppets ever a comic STRIP? Comic books, I know, but comic STRIPS?

    Early 80's. Done by Guy and Brad Gilchrist. It would have been higher on the list if the entire run was as good as its early years but the writing got more generic as the strip went on and the art more simplistic.

    Okay, that would explain why I'm not familiar with a Muppets comic strip: I was in Nashville in the early 80s, plus I wasn't born yet.

    The reason it wasn't higher on my list of the best comic strips is because when I think of the Muppets, I usually don't think of the comic strip (as far as licensed products go I very likely think of the Palisades figures and Boom comic books before thinking of the strip). Also, I didn't grow up with the strip; I have one of the comic book collections and have read other Muppet comic strips online (most notably the ones chosen for Tough Pigs' anthology on the comics), as well as the one shown in Jim Henson: The Works.

    Ah... as much as I love Smigliano's work... he DID kind of leave us hanging on that Playing with Dolls webcomic... :smirk:

    Yeah, I think the last strip had to do with the geekier fan learning the news that the Henson children bought back the company. I think I read on the forum that there were plans for a great series of strips, can't remember what was actually said (at the time I had the feeling it was something like them being at Muppetfest, but I think that was just an assumption).

    Yes, then there was a brief hiatus, then Smigliano did a couple of Halloween-related strips (one of which had said geekier fan dressing as Cookie Monster to steal candy from trick-or-treaters), then that was it. I do remember the "preview" tag line for the supposed next strip seemed to have something to do with Frank Oz, so yeah, we were kind of left hanging.

    Other than that, I've been enjoying Smig's work on deviantART for quite some time now, it's hard to believe he's not considered a professional.

    9. "Nobody... Calls me... Chicken"
    8. "Hey, Chuck, it's Marvin. You're cousin, Marvin Berry. You know that new sound you're looking for? Well listen to this!"

    Bonus line (which is in a deleted scene from Back tot he Future Part II): "I can only watch two programs with this" "You really have it tough. When I was your age, if I wanted to watch two programs, I had to bring two TVs in the room."

    I forgot about Clifford, but then again, my PBS doesn't even play Clifford anymore, so... :smirk:

    I don't even know if mine does play Clifford anymore... for a while they had it on at like 6:30 in the morning on weekdays, but now I think they changed that...

    But I've always really liked Clifford, there is a lot of humor reeking about it...and then there's this one episode where T-Bone does this super awesome and hilarious laugh that he never does again...
