    Incredible. Just incredible. I tip my hat to you, Bill Barretta, for your impeccable performance as Dr. Teeth. We knew Eric could do character voices perfectly, but now it is clear that Bill can do one mean Teeth. David was also great as Janice.

    Yeah, Matt was a teeny bit off in this performance. But, it's really hard to do a character voice and sing at the same time without your real voice coming through. I'm so confident in Matt's abilities, though, that I'm sure he'll improve. Plus, his speaking voice for Floyd is spot-on.

    I think David needs to lower the pitch on Janice a tad, but otherwise, GREAT THING!

    I wonder how they did the music with a real LIVE drummer? did they take out the drum track? That was really a tight performance!

    if i remember right Jimmy Kimmel has a live band on set so they probably practiced and did the music for electric mayhem with the Puppeteers doing the Vocals...i mean it could be as simple as that or super complicated

    LOL...that would make sense...or yeah it could be more complicated than that! lol

    This was apparently pre-recorded on Monday. So they were able to do multiple takes until everything was just right with the performance.

    it could be way more complicated...i mean the drum attack was probably pre recorded and edited together but besides that im taking the simple approach

    the vocals do sound "Live" though as if done on Set

    Yeah i figured the vocals were live...just was curious how they did the music with a real live drummer...can't fake that

    You know I was going to write about how I didn't like Janice & Floyd in this....mainly because this is my favorite Muppet song and I love the original so much, but you make an excellent point. The character is still there, I wish the vocals would get there too, Janice actually sounded a little too girly to me, but having the correct character there is the most important thing.

    Dr. Teeth sounded amazing!

    Upon further watching, this only gets better and better! Like many of you have said previously, Bill Barretta has Dr. Teeth exactly down. My only quibble, and it's a small one, is that I like Dr Teeth's outfit from the TMS-era productions better than the one he wears now. Hopefully the Electric Mayhem and the other Muppets can follow this up with other cool guest appearances.

    (Perhaps Kermit and the gang can substitute host for Jimmy Kimmel one of these days.)

    I say just let the muppets do everything even run for president. I'd so vote for them!!!

    That was rocking and it's nice to see the Electric Mayhem get the spotlight.

    Though I would of enjoyed it if Lips could of been there as well.

    nice to get to know the other muppets also. I think it's great that they all got a bit of fame.
