    Well, although I made Jessica extremely funny in the story, she's not that way in real life. I needed someone who was on par with Bill Murray and the character of Peter Venkman, and Donna Kymberleigh is just that person.

    Proof of that is this picture she messaged me through MySpace:


    She knows us Muppet fans and our humor all too well. LOL!:p

    That's my favorite picture! XD

    Eddie, what he displayed to us was a picture of Kermit sitting in front of what appears to be a doctor holding up an x-ray.

    Kermit's expression is unreadable as he awaits the dreadful news of his well-being.

    In the x-ray, Kermit's puppet form holds from inside a hand (it's anatomy being displayed in the x-ray).

    Doctor: Have a seat, Kemit. What I'm about to tell you may come as a shock.

    Kermit: o_o

    I just thought you'd like to know, Eddiekins. =D

    Ooh! Yes, I would've. Thankees Claudida.

    And Sean, I liked Jessica not so much for the humor but for how you presented her in a bit more adult tone compared to Christina and Stephanie, just like how Venkman was the more grownup/cynnic/realist of the original trio.

    But however you feel the reworking would go best to make you feel happy with it, I support you buddy.

    Now then... Um, Claudia, erm... If you could please help me out with another little request, I left it in your PM box.

    Cool. Well, Donna will be just the same, only ten times better. No one gets more adult than Donna Kymberleigh--I promise you that. Haha!

    The only roles I think will change as a result of the new cast will be J.G.'s and mine. J.G. is going to represent a side of Ray Stantz that we saw a tad bit of from that "dream sequence" in the first movie (you know, when the ghost starts unbuckling his pants?). Not in THAT sense, but more in terms of having a sort of romantic interest with some of the beautiful female ghosts that he encounters on the job.

    As for me, since I'm now the counterpart of Egon Spengler (and not Winston Zeddemore, as in the original version of my story), I'll try to make myself out to be a much more eccentric, intelligent, and witty version of him. The biggest inside joke to this is that Harold Ramis wrote the script to Ghostbusters along with Dan Aykroyd, and in the end, he became what he wrote. I honestly couldn't imagine anyone else taking on that role other than him.

    Speaking of Winston Zeddemore, I finally found my counterpart for him in my new, revamped story. Her name is Gina Ferraro, and she has just as close of a history with the Ghostbusters franchise than the rest of us do.

    Proof of that is here, here, and here!;)

    Gina's version of Winston Zeddemore will be no different from Ernie Hudson. She's just as much no-nonsense as he was in the films, but also light-hearted, dedicated, and sarcastic as he turned out to be in the animated series (for anyone who has seen the episodes "Ghostbuster of the Year" and "Lost and Foundry", you'll see where I'm driving at).

    According to our MySpace pages, it seems like the two female members of our new team are the oldest, while the males are the youngest. I just found this interesting since Donna K is the oldest of the four of us.:)

    Much of the same secrets of the story will be there in the new version and the villain is the same one I intended for it to be in the original. The only difference is my approach to explaining who it might be until the very end of the story.

    A sequel is still planned for this story, as well as a possible ongoing series. We'll just have to wait and see how things turn out.

    But for now, the team is all set and I'm ready to get to working on the new, revamped "Who Ya Gonna Call?" for Stranger Than Muppet Fan Fiction.;)

    I think I will reply tonight, Eddie. :)
    I just have to update a little something.

    Stars of "Spaaaaace...The Final Frontier" Talk!

    M.C. recently had the opportunity to talk with a few of the stars of the upcoming Stranger Than Muppet Fan Fiction story, "Spaaaaace...The Final Frontier!", and allow us to ask questions on some of the things we can expect in the tale.

    We asked the main star of our story, Link Hogthrob, about working with the cast of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Farscape, and he had this to say:

    "Well, I don't know too much about science or even fiction for that matter. But I know that no one can really make water and air move by itself nor stun a living being with its tongue. It's amazing what those imaginative gentlemen at L.I.M. can do nowadays, isn't it?"

    When we caught up with Princess Azula (the main villain of Avatar), we asked her about the series finale in July and what would the outcome of her character would be:

    "What a silly question to ask! Well, it only seems fair to provide a silly answer...I win. 'Nuff said!"

    We were even able to get a brief interview with Suki (Sokka's love interest in Avatar) about working with the Muppets and her fellow co-stars:

    "Well, they're all really great. I'm having lots of fun with this. It's definitely something that I haven't tried before. Sokka's been...well...the usual on set. He and Link Hogthrob seem to have this wacky yet brilliant chemistry that'll make you want to stay in the room for hours, waiting to see what happens next."

    When asked about how her fellow Avatar stars performed in last year's Fantastic Four/Muppets crossover, "The Silver Crystal", she mentioned:

    "I loved it! I just wished they could've had more to do. They seemed to just be in the background a lot, and there was never enough time for them to really shine. It won't be that way here in ["Spaaaaace...The Final Frontier"]. I also think Azula will have more of a purpose, too. She and Scorpius from Farscape had something going on in ["The Silver Crystal"] that we never got to get into, and it seems to come back in a HUGE way."

    We told Azula about Suki's quote, and she had this to say:

    "Even if she is a weak little girl, it's good to know that she at least had a moment to mention ME."

    On the subject of the trailer we all had seen in March, the characters said this:

    Link Hogthrob: "I seemed to have noticed a lot of my bad moments. Who's idea was it to include a clip of me getting my head stuck in the door?"

    Suki: "I loved it! Sokka, Aang, Toph, and Katara all looked really heroic in most of those scenes."

    Azula: "Where the *beep* was I in that so-called trailer?"

    When asked about their plans for Mother's Day, the stars each had to say this:

    Link Hogthrob: "What more could I give my own mother for a day like Mother's Day than two tickets to see N*Sync in concert on May 11th, 1999." After a few seconds, he added: "Wait a minute!"

    Suki: "Mother's Day? Wow. We don't really do much on that day, except for learn an easier way of breaking a man's arm in two places." She then added: "I'm kidding! We pick flowers all day, that's all."

    Azula: "You're kidding me, right?"

    "Spaaaace...The Final Frontier" is coming soon to Muppet Central. Until then, we'll have more of these interviews around the thread, not to mention yet another cool trailer over the summer.:)

    To follow up on the interviews I had done on Friday, I created these posters for "Spaaaaaace...The Final Frontier". They're the first ones I had done in a long time, so I hope I still have that touch:

    Heroes/Villains Poster

    Swine Trek/Starfleet Insignia Poster (My Personal Favorite)

    I decided that the story will start being posted on January of next year, seeing as how this year is full of planned stories. I'm also thinking of writing "World of Disney" by that time.;)

    Hey, everyone. :)

    As you all know, this Tuesday will be the day when I start posting the Muppets/Indiana Jones crossover. I'm almost finished with the Power Rangers/Iron Man story that I'm writing for the Henshin! Talk forum, so I should have plenty of time between now and then to get started on a great first chapter.

    I'm going to try and see if I can "attach" a new "Spaaaaace...The Final Fronter" fan trailer with the story for this Tuesday. It'll probably be more of a music video than a fan trailer, but fun either way.

    In other news, our friend Alissa Brown (a.k.a. "Lori Thomas") is...get this...GOING TO HAVE A BABY! Just found out from her sister Larissa today. Good news for the day indeed!

    I'll be back soon with more.;)

    Hey again. :)

    Still working on getting the next chapter for "Indiana Frog" in. Been so busy with other things, as well as my Hulk/Power Rangers story, which I have successfully posted the first chapter to on Henshin Talk!

    I'll get back to working on the "Sesame Seed" story, too (I only have two more parts to finish before I get to writing the big story itself, "Nights of the Knights").

    Also, I planned on working on two fan trailers by the end of June, but it looks like I'll only have one, because I can't find enough footage right now from Sesame Street for the "Nights of the Knights" trailer. I'll have one great trailer worked up for "Who Ya Gonna Call?" hopefully by late-June or early-July. ;)

    That's all I have to update on for now.

    Have a few new details to share with what I have planned for the revised version of "Who Ya Gonna Call?":

    The story will take place in the year 1985 (continuity-wise, this'll put it between the events of Muppets Take Manhattan and Labyrinth).

    Gonzo and Rizzo will be the narrators (a la Muppets Christmas Carol) and find themselves as part of the story as they were in Muppets Treasure Island.

    The story will have four alternate endings (two for the Disney version and two for the Muppets version).

    <3 Labyrinth.

    Anyway, great news. :)

    I wanted to save this news for later on this year, but I find myself increasing in anxiety to share it. So here it goes...

    Looking at one of the polls The Count and I had posted earlier this year, it was obvious that the most popular story out of "The MARVELOUS Muppets" was the X-Men/Fraggle Rock crossovers. And I loved writing them more than all the other stories.

    I've been doing a lot of heavy thinking and deciding, and I came to the decision of bringing back those stories, but in a whole new way.:excited:

    For anyone who has read the stories, you remember that Gonzo was the center of attention in all three, right? And the story for the third movie, X-Men: The Last Stand, introduced the Fraggles as mutants, right?

    Well, I'm thinking it would be just as cool to see all those stories rewritten to where the Fraggles are the main focus, working alongside the X-Men like they were after the third Muppets/X-Men tale.

    This'll be a great way to work in that story that I had planned before the fanfic series' "cancellation", which will be based on the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie next year. I had problems with coming up with a workable plot last time, but this time I think I've got the right approach (and, no, it won't involve time-travel).

    And let's not forget my character, Boom Fraggle. There's still much more that needs to be told about this deadly mutant, and the omission of S.H.I.E.L.D. from his background will be the most prominent thing in future short stories that introduce him (including a rewrite of my last "MARVELOUS Mini" story).

    I'll have more updates on this. :)


    Also, I have another idea for a "Stranger Than..." story next year:

    Seeing that the Terminator franchise has been making a huge comeback as of late (with a new show on FOX and movie, starring none other than Christian "Batman" Bale), I thought of writing a crossover between the Muppets and Terminator, with Digit from The Jim Henson Hour being the main character.

    This is an idea I had while working on the Iron Man/Muppets story, and I was going to use the storyline for that particular story, but now I think it'd be best to include it into an actual Terminator-centered story.;)

    Again, I'll have more on this later.

    As everyone knows by now, The Incredible Hulk comes out in theaters this Friday, and I've been more than excited to see Louis Leterrier's version of it. SPOILER ALERT: I've heard a certain shellhead's going to be in it. ;)

    And as everyone also knows, I've been a sucker for writing crossovers based on movies like this, especially if they're comic book-related. Lately, I've been focusing on my Power Rangers/Marvel Comics series, "Marvel Mayhem", with the completion of an Iron Man story last month. And now, I'm targeting a Hulk one.

    Just like last time, I created a music video for everyone to check out. And I think you all will get a big kick out of this one:

    The Hulk/Power Rangers Music Video

    Warning: It gets REAL loud around 1:43 and 2:47, so be careful. Haha.

    If you want to check out my version of the upcoming movie, you can read "The Incredible" on Henshin Talk! here.

    An update on the revised Muppets/Ghostbusters story, "Who Ya Gonna Call?":

    Gina Ferraro has been replaced for the role of the Zeddemore counterpart by MySpace friend Sarah (a.k.a. "GelflinGirl92" here on Muppet Central), who will be referred to as Sarah "Riley" Zeddemore in the tale.


    As a way of celebrating the release of The Dark Knight on July 18th, I'll start posting a "Commentary Edition" of the first Batman/Sesame Street story, "The Gotham Grouchfest", around later this month. Characters handling commentary will be Oscar the Grouch, Count Von Count, and Bert & Ernie.

    Got some more incredible (pun intended) news to share with everyone today.:)

    Another couple of great characters from one of Ryan's (theprawncracker) awesome stories will be making an appearance in "Nights of the Knights". One in the form of a Gotham Times reporter and the other as one of the hoodlums following The Joker and his mob.

    Anyone remember Alex Hooper and Ashley?

    And also...

    I'm highly thinking of bringing "The Marvelous Muppets" back to MC, in a whole different continuity. With "Power Rangers: Marvel Mayhem" happening on another forum, it brings a lot of interesting possibilities for more original and easy-to-follow storylines and not remakes of blockbuster Marvel Comics films.

    We'll see how things turn out in the coming months.

    That's all I have for the evening. Hope everyone had a great Father's Day this past Sunday.

    Hmmm... I for one have come to love and appreciate your direct crossover/remakes of the various comic book films, as it gives me the opportunity to experience them as I don't rully have the ability to leave my home with the freedom my family has. But hey, if that's the direction you believe will bring you greater satisfaction, then I support you 100% buddy.

    Now if I could resolve a couple things myself I could get back to my own creations. Take care MW.
