    I found this link which details how director Spike Jonez is finally getting his film adaptation of the children's book, "Where The Wild Things Are" off the ground, and most importantly, the Jim Henson company will be creating the monsters! Can I get a wahoo, people?!

    I'm not sure what you were saying, but it's not going to be animated, it's going to be live action and animatronics.

    I can't think of anything better for this project than for the Henson company to be involved. Just hearing that gives me faith.

    CGI might work on this

    Yeah, it could, but I'm looking forward to seeing some good ol' puppetry bring these characters to life.

    now that is cool.

    I always thought Doglion looked like one of the creatures from this book.

    Me too! And then I found out that Jim Henson and Wild Things creator Maurice Sendak were good friends, so I started to make the connection. I have no doubt that Sendak's work was an indirect influence on at least some of the Muppet Show full-body monsters, so it's really excited to hear the Henson's or working on a Wild Things movie! It's just so perfect!

    By the way, to all you guys who carried on the whole "Wahoo" thing from the beginning of this thread, you rule!

    I agree. And we all can now tell where the real Muppet magic company is.
    Hint: It's not MHC.

    Truer words were never spoken, my friend.

    And I also believe that Fraggle Rock is wholly Canadian!

    I HOPE he does this right! I loved that book forever, and when I lost my copy from as a kid, I went straight out and bought it again!! Every good home should have this book.

    Do you really lowercasegods? That makes 2.46 of us!

    I hope so too, Zozzie.
    Q: Is Brian Henson more involed w/ MHC or the JHC?
  19. lowercasegods

    lowercasegods Well-Known Member

    I truly do, Marky. I don't know what it is, whether it's Jerry Nelson giving Gobo a slight Canadian accent or that the production was shot in Toronto, but I just feel like the Fraggles' world is wholly Canadian, and I love it. I also feel the same way about Emmett Otter, but I don't expect anyone else to agree with me.

    Brian would obviously be more involved with the JHC since he's President there.
