    I laughed at the end when Pepe was going in and out of Link's stomach, laughing, and saying "weeeeeee".

    Knowing Pepe, I'm a little surprised he didn't call attention to his nudity, considering that sly little exhibitionist streak he has, lol.

    It must have been...I can't imagine who else would have voiced Link. Steve is doing such a great job with him...he has the voice down really well. I can't wait until next Friday's "The Gravity of the Situation" debuts! I have watched this sketch more times than I am willing to admit...hee hee.

    I really did like this sketch. It was funny and very well paced by the performers. But I've also seen some of those dumb rants from 'concerned parents' about 'Disney allowing digusting and disgraceful behaviour from the Muppets that would make Jim Hanson roll in his grave'....

    OOH! I think I just found my next blog article!

    Anyway, while I agree that the jokes may have been a tad bit too adult, this was produced during the 'edgier Muppets' phase so it really hasn't come as a surprise to me.

    I enjoyed it. I had hoped these videos would be serialized like old Flash Gordon shorts, but if they are taking the route of spoofing various Sci-Fi films that is also very good. I love the trio of main characters, but I am also happy we had another member of the starring cast and a new puppet (I don't think I have seen the squid before). Maybe Dearth Nadir will appear at some point.

    I seem to be in the minority here. I found it just barely amusing. A 20 year wait for this? Sad day. I couldn't watch it with my kid. I know the original Muppet show wasn't really a kids show, but I'm comfortable watching most all of the DVDs with my daughter. This new stuff... Not so much. Really disappointed

    I agree with GenoWrites. This sketch was okay, but I didn't find it terribly amusing- though I did find it subtly vulgar (but since finding out it was produced during the time of "The Muppets" show, I'm not surprised- since that show was also at least subtly (and sometimes not-so-subtly) vulgar.)
    Nonetheless, it was nice to see a Pigs in Space sketch again, with Link Hogthrob, Dr. Julius Strangepork and First Mate Piggy:mad: (and Pepe:rolleyes: as well), even if the voices weren't quite the same. Piggy and Pepe were fine- and there was a good effort for Link and Strangepork- but it just wasn't quite there for me.

    Hey, compared to Scooter cage dancing among other things in VMX, this is fluff.

    I would like to point out that these weren't shot during the taping of M15. The only real impact they had on these, I'm almost certain, was halt the release of them so they could better focus the franchise on the TV series.

    meant to add this, i totally understand that the videos were made during their ABC TV show, so I'm going disregard the jokes.

    Hmm....do I use my powers of invisibility for good or evil?

    Exactly, which is why I didn't say 'during the tv series'.

    Okay- perhaps I misunderstood that. My mistake.
    Both are bad.:sympathy:

    I liked this one! I do think that Matt Vogel needs to work on his Dr. Strangepork voice a little more, but he'll get there. There was only one joke that would really classify as "adult" as far as I can tell. Definitely looking forward to more!

    Are you guys thinking what i'm thinking? The Muppets' next production should be a half hour Pigs in Space special!

    edit: Also i'd like to note that the video is doing very well right now with over 75 thousand views.

    Saw the clip last week, and I think it may be it was really awesome return of "Pigs In Space"!:mad: It made a really good reference to the Alien movies, and I was pretty creeped out and laughing at the same time. Pepe coming out of Link Hogthrob's stomach was truly the icing on the comedy scare cake. I gotta say, I am looking forward to more of these webisodes, as well as cameos from the other Muppets as well.
