    Well I guess what he means is the whole "Elmo's World" thing came after Jim.

    I agree with you. I'd rather Rowlf get more screentime than Pepe for the movie. I'm sure Pepe will rule the Halloween special and many other projects. I just think Pepe should be given more than three lines. I am still particularly disturbed by the lack of Scooter. Maybe Segel doesn't like thie character? It can't be "The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made" without Scooter in a firm role. ;)

    I also wonder about Bobo. He's just so funny. Johnny and Sal too.

    Yeah really, I mean we can only speculate; maybe a permanent performer just hasn't been settled for Scooter.

    I personally would be happy if Johnny was nowhere near this, heh. But that's just me. ;)

    I know. I was just saying that everyone hates Elmo because he wasen't around when they were little. I don't hate him at all, I was just saying.

    More that he took over the show, he was around when a lot of fans were little. But I get what you meant. :)

    I suppose Johnny Fiama is so close to my heart because of my heavy involvement in his action figure. We got his likeness down so good that it was one of Palisades' best (if I do say so myself). ;) However, I understand why you don't like him. To me he is the Fozzie Bear of lounge singers. To you he's an ethnic stereotype. I think he's transcended that for the most part, but sometimes the writers keep "dragging him back in!" :D I had to say that. He he.

    I don't think he took over, I think he is just used more then everyone else.

    Oh ok yeah I understand, you should take pride in your work. :)

    Yeah I mean I don't want to me too sensitive or PC (Heaven forbid!). Just that not enough attention is ever given to that and this puppet just happens to fall in the middle of all that. (I suppose I should be more angry at the Sopranos! ;))

    But Jim/Frank/Jerry/etc's main characters have never left the spotlight. Pepe is the only post JH character who has been feature prominently; and he compliments them. He's not like Elmo, who has taken over the street'.

    Pepe is one of the main core of the Muppets, and it'd be a mistake to not give him a prominent role with the other characters. Im looking through this draft review; and Im wondering if Segal and Stoller truly are versed in Muppet canon/chemistry.

    People hate Elmo because since 1996 it's been a sickening over saturation. My goodness, could you imagine if Telly was given even a 20th the time/merch/love Elmo is given? There's times where I just pretend Elmo isn't even part of Sesame/Muppet canon. Im glad for how much money he's brought into Sesame workshop, and for how much success he's brought to such an insanely talented performer as Kevin Clash. But goodness gracious, Elmo has just been way too nauseatingly ubiquitous for well over a decade.

    People can say every Muppet is an "ethnic" stereotype. "Clifford is too sterotypically black". "Statler and Waldorf are a stereotype of golden year white guys", etc.

    I agree Johnny Fiama is one of those who has in my mind endured the post Muppets Tonight era(unlike...say bubbles and poodlepants) I'm glad you had so much involvement in the Fiama figure. It's just a shame Sal never got made.

    Well I would argue the Muppets in general have somewhat left the spotlight, unfortunately. But I agree Pepe has not taken over the show (as I said earlier). :)

    Again I'm not against harmless stereotypes per se. Just that the Italians ones can get very nasty and are rarely commented on (while other stereotypes are frowned upon).

    I don't feal that way.

    I did want to point out, that thing about Animal in anger management rehab sounds like something right out of Family Guy or Robot Chicken (in a good way) Lol.

    Oh My God!

    This script review is fantastic! If it is true, it may possibly be one of the most awesome movies ever!

    awesome cameos and references to the other movies


    another muppet musical with tons of parodies

    and did I mention


    I am so friggin excited! I really hope we get to see this movie; the whole review sounded like a dream come true; finally a movie where the muppets don't seem completely kiddie and wussed out and kermit hopefully actually showing feelings for Piggy! I am kind of sad that Bobo is not in it because he is awesome. Oh my god I simply cannot contain myself. I am just so friggin happy and excited that I just might explo............

    Well, I'm not sure what to make of this yet. I'm by no means ticked off, but I'm not super ecstatic and jumping for joy either.

    Just...stunned, I guess? O_O I know there's a lot of great info, but I still feel like there's something missing. Maybe it's the ending or the lack of songs but hey, I'mma wait and be surprised when it comes out. :halo:

    *crosses fingers for large amounts of the Electric Mayhem, Johnny and Sal, and possibly Lefty--XPPP*

    I agree, there has been too little Kermie/Piggy love lately :sympathy:. It will be nice to see more of it back :excited:. I guess LTS was a good snapshot into how they are getting along now :3
