    I don't dislike CGI per se--in many shows/movies I love it. It just makes my hackles rise to see characters that were originally puppets turn CGI on Sesame Street, particularly since I can't imagine any need to make the switch.

    But, as I said in the Sesame Street season 37 thread, I did enjoy the skit. It was well done and I laughed despite my instant horror of the (perceived) desecration of the CGI switch.

    And, oh yeah, I agree the voices were great.

    I have two questions...
    • Who are the new performers of the twiddlebug family?
    • Is this traditional computer animation (like Pixar's stuff) or is some kind of digital performance system (like what's used for Waldo C. Graphic, "Elmo's World" and "Frances")?

    Actually, that's incorrect. Whoever put together that version of Who's Who didn't have their work proofread. Here's the correct list of names...

    Pretty soon, all digital cameras will be that small!!
    That's what I thought too. I don't remember the originals too much, but what I heard when I watched that clip sounded right. And yeah, mustache on the father was funny-lookin'.

    Yes, I saw a video clip of the new Twiddlebug Scene, and the Twiddelbugs aren't in Muppet Form, instead they are computer graphiced.
    Plus, Thomas Twiddlebug now has a mustache.

    Sorry, I'm getting more in a mood to something else.
    That's why I don't post often anymore.

    That might be possible, as SW just formed some sort of partnership with Busch Entertainment(which owns the Sesame Place park, which I've never been to)...and from what I read, the deal said something about 4D film attractions, so yeah.

    I've seen it, but thought it could have been a lot better than what I saw. It was about the SS gang(BB, CM, Elmo, B/E, OTG, G and Zoe) "imagining" movies after the film projector broke. Cookie and Oscar's dream sequences are what I found quite amusing :p

    But as I said, could have been much better IF, 1) It was made entirely in Japan and 2) The plot would have been about the characters(inc. the eight I mentioned) going into a director(played by an actor)'s studio and as they look around, they start to play around with props, sets, etc to make their own films. And, they could bring back Sam the Robot in a spoof of Star Wars that they come up with. Also could make references to films like JAWS, Psycho and so on...
