    Okay here ya go skip to the 1:30 mark. I think Kermit once again hit the nail on the head.

    No problem with that. But nothing too serious.
    When you see Walter's feet in the new Muppet movie you think "WHOA! How did they do that?!? (At least that's what I think) you don't get the same effect when you see a CGI character's feet. Have you ever gone "Oh, wow. I can see Buzz Lightyear's feet!" (You probably didn't).
    Anyway, wrapping up this post, like I said above, the magic of the Muppets would be ruined forever (Tex Richman would be happy)

    I think those two clips I just posted say it all myself.

    I agree. The Walter effects were wonderful!!

    I did take issue with Piggy's walk in Paris. The puppetry in that shot didn't quite work. I think CG could have helped that couple of seconds along. I wouldn't support anything longer or much more than that.

    I happen to agree with you there. But I don't think CGI would have helped that. They just messed up on that scene. They should have reshot it at a different angle using bluescreen

    .
    You'll have to excuse me. I'll have to watch it later using a different computer. Youtube is still blocked.

    Point taken, I do agree with that.

    When it comes right down to it, what would happen if you took the puppets out of the Muppets? You'd just be left with...M.

    Oh no...wait a minute...

    That image didn't work. So that's pretty much what would happen. LOL!

    (For those who couldn't see it, it was the new Disney "M" logo for the Muppets with just the letter M with the Kermit collar)

    I don't even think it's gonna be Uppets just "ppets"

    Sounds like Muppets can be kept as pets.

    No. I think that the whole artistry of it lies within the puppeteering. It isn't simply about preserving the characters, but the performance style itself.
    Saying that the physical Muppets should be replaced by CGI versions of the characters is the same as implying that we should just get motocyclists to run the 100 meter dash in the Olympics. No WAY!
