Like many of the people here, we got interested into The Muppets at a very young age at some point and generation. Some I'm guessing must have seen The Muppet Show when it originally aired in the 70s (you lucky people lol, I wish I had a time machine ) And there's people like me who grew up watching The Muppet Show in Nickelodeon and Muppets Tonight on ABC / Disney Channel back in the 1990s, my generation. lol And perhaps the new generation of fans I slowly discover on this form who discovered them on DVD or other sources. Like my best friend, less than 5 years ago, he became a classic Muppet fan. And we both enjoyed the new movie (esspecially Jack Black getting the John Cleese treatment lol) and love watching classic Muppet Show episodes. In fact last weekend, we watched the Vincent Price episode because we went to Wal-Mart and seen this Kermit hat that had Kermit with Fangs and I told him that the episode was the only time he had fangs. (Grover did give him teeth on Sesame about 10 years later but that's another story. lol) Recently personally I've been studying The Law of Attraction and what I started to notice was relations and coinidences to some of Jim Henson's quotes and even The Rainbow Connection. I wanted to re-watch The Muppet Movie and last night into today I did. (I usually like watching movies in parts lol) and perhaps I watch TV a little differently then most people. I had the captions on because I like to read the script as well as watch The Movie. It's been so long since I've sat down and watched the movie again. I don't even remember how many years it's been. But what's amazing watching it as an adult and reading the captions is that for the first time, I'm getting all the dialog jokes I never knew existed. I noticed there were a lot more adult situations in there between Kermit and Miss Piggy like him getting dumped and Fozzie and the gang having some murmuring negitive thoughts about her. The running gags, I wish I could remember them all. lol Wasn't there a scene cut out from the El Sleezo Cafe scene where Kermit orders a Dragonfly cocktale? Though there was some things that I did notice at the end that I noticed. Robin in the background at the magic store number behind Miss Piggy Big Bird postcard in Dr. Teeth's Bus The movies running gag on the Church sign Sam the Eagle tells Scooter the movie was "Sick and Weird" over the credits Frank Oz wasn't credited for Marvin Suggs Jim Henson wasn't credited for Link Hogthrob or The Swedish Chef Sweetums eats one of Lew Zeland's Beloved Fish in credits, as well as knocking out an angry chicken lol Adam Hunt, Richard Hunt's Brother worked on the movie In the background Marvin Suggs lands in the lap of Blue Frackle who later brushes himself off in disgust. lol "Big Bird courtesy of Children's Television Workshop"? How odd, I thought The Jim Henson Company owned the rights to the Sesame Street Muppets until that German Company breifly bought The Jim Henson Company then sold the Sesame Muppets to CTW. Was the ITC copyright still on the Disney DVD release? And finally, should I buy the new Disney version on DVD? I still own my Columbia release and I ain't letting this DVD out of my collection, it's got the screen test. I re-wated it and it's even more irreverently funnier then I remembered. lol I loved it. lol But now seeing it as an adult, I get the plot of the movie and it's so inspiring to me as an artist trying to make it to the big time. It's a simble of Jim's career and his crew in a fictional matter. And just to follow your dreams no matter if you get bullied along the way or if people tell you no. And it's kind of like The Law of Attraction sort of, Kermit believed in himself and he meet the characters who believed in the same dream. This was the first time I watched the movie where I felt like crying happy tears. Because I get everything now, the jokes, the running gags, the plots, the symbolic messages. It's Amazing! And I felt that since I was a member on this forum, I wanted to express my positive feelings about this movie. Sure I've always loved this movie but now I love it even more as an adult. It's so inspiring! The lyrics to every song, there's a message that being said!
