Why I think Floyd and Janice are more than friends

    Many speculate than Floyd and Janice are very close for a reason and I do agree.
    Those two are almost always together and next to eachother. About 99 percent of the time.
    Here's the subtle proof they are indeed more than just friends
    So I'm going to become a Muppet Relationship Analyzer

    Clue 1: In the Muppet Movie, towards the end, Floyd and Janice are sitting together with their arms around eachother. Before this, when Floyd and Janice are in the bus, Floyd is resting his head against Janice's.

    Clue 2: Yes, Floyd flirts with other women. But towards the end of the Diana Ross muppet show episode, He has his arm around Janice and she is resting her head on his shoulder during the song "Reach Out And Touch."

    Clue 3: During the Muppets Take Manhattan, When Gonzo yells at Janice, Floyd rushes to her defense.

    Clue 4: In one episode of the Muppet Show, Janice plays a renassance princess and Floyd is her knight.

    Clue 5: During the Muppets Go To The Movies, Janice and Floyd are flirting and making it quite obvious they are a couple. I don't recall the name of the song. I think Floyd even kisses Janice on the cheek.

    Clue 6: Often on the dance scenes during the Muppet Show, Janice is with Floyd. Sometimes she's been with Zoot and Dr. Teeth and a unknown green monster too.

    Clue 7: During the end of the Muppets Take Manhattan, when Kermit is saying "I Do" to Piggy. (I think you need Widescreen to observe this), Janice and Floyd are staring at eachother.
    Is this just a coincedence that Floyd would look towards her directly at a wedding right at the moment a wedding vow is being said? I think not! I think Jim Henson put these two together.

    Clue 8: During the Muppets Celebration of 30 years, Towards the end, While Janice and Floyd are getting teary eyed for Kermit, It looks like he is pushing his face into her hair.

    Clue 9:During the muppet show, one episode in which Floyd and Janice were both seated in the balcony together. Floyd stated they were the best seats he could find. He could have brought anyone up there and he chose Janice.
    He does love her very much.

    *Well, I've given you my proof! Floyd and Janice are either
    1. a couple
    2. already married

    If they haven't gotten married yet, Then let's give Janice a show where she can become Mrs. Floyd Pepper! :flirt:

    They are a couple... and the name of the song that Floyd and Janice sing is called Act Naturally.
    :sing: :flirt:

    Floyd and Janice have admitted they're a couple, it's really not a surprise at all, but nice listings on their activities. They're most likely not married though... no rings.

    I love Floyd and Janice singing Act Naturally, they do it so fabulously (much better than certain blue creatures did in a certain UK skit on TMS :concern: ). And I thought Floyd and Janice were openly a couple. On "Of Muppets And Men" it's either Richard or Frank who talks about them being a couple.

    Hey, I never knew about Kermit's 'I Do' while they stare at each other! That is the sweetest thing in the world. I have to get widescreen now just for that reason!

    You're correct on that point. And you do need widescreen to see it. It just something I think you spot after watching the movie a hundred times. BTW I wonder if anyone else has noticed this. But when you change the aspect ration on MTM to full screen the movie is filled with "Too High" moments. You even see the tops of a few heads in it! (That's my little tidbit for the day.)
  8. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Yes, I have heard before about there being heads in MTM!

    I was looking in to DVD video ripping software and I came across a cheap program (that didn't work for ripping video at least) but did do something very interesting.
    To get to that point, lemme' just explain something first:
    In print, when an image goes right to the edge of a page, it's called a bleed. The page is printed on a larger paper and the image goes about an eighth inch past where the page is and then it's cropped to the regular size, and that eighth inch is trimmed off. I don't know what it's called in film, but they have something similar where more of what actually appears on screen is on film.
    NOW; on that software, it exposed that "hidden" section of film and as I was attempting to rip video from my TIME/LIFE DVDs, I could see not just the top of the heads of the puppeteers, but their faces too! Unfortunately, I couldn't screen capture them, but it was so freaking awesome.

    Yes Vic, video always has extra picture off the screen. This is because different TVs cut off different amounts of the edge, so a margin of about 10 percent more width and height is usually "cut off" around the main "safe area".
    Depending on the TV set, this cut off area can either be visible or invisible, so it should look OK but not have any really important stuff in it.
    With some muppet setups, it is barely possible to keep the muppeteer's heads out of the safe area, so when the cutoff is seen - hello puppeteers!

    Muppeteers (and boom microphones) are most likely to be seen on older widescreen movies transferred to 4:3 video, because when shooting, the cameraman wasn't thinking about video, and was mostly concerned with the 16:9 widescreen seen in theaters, which cuts off even more of the top and bottom.

    Probably the worst (or is it the best??) spot in MTM I think of is right before the gang enter Pete's diner for the first time. If you watch Kermit keeps getting taller and taller as they walk until you see Jim's (I'm assuming it's Jim's) wrist. Eventually if you look close you'll see about four or five heads and a big black blob following the 'wrist'. I don't know how you could capture this. But I would love to see the goof-ups on your Time-Life DVD's Dave!!
  12. Vic Romano

    Vic Romano Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I wish I could have screen captured it, because you could see them looking at eachother and laughing and really having a good time. It was so cool!
    And thanks for that explanation Slampot.

    Everyone always knew that Janice and Floyd were a couple--BUT! Did you know she originally dated Dr. Teeth?

    Or was it Zoot?

    Heck, it might've been all of them.

    Skip the following, it's innuendo:

    At MuppetFest, during Q&A, someone asked Floyd, "Are you and Janice still tight?" Floyd looked around and said, "Janice ain't so tight no more."

    Clue 1: In the Muppet Movie, towards the end, Floyd and Janice are sitting together with their arms around eachother. Before this, when Floyd and Janice are in the bus, Floyd is resting his head against Janice's.

    In the very begining, Janice asks for something (popcorn, i think) and Floyd even answers with "Sure! Nothin's too good for my woman!" To which Animal quickly chimes in "WOMAN! WOMAN! WOMAN!"

    ...I think. It's off the top of my head, but i know it's something to that affect.

    Yes, that is correct.

    And later when they are preparing for the movie (carrying the hollywood sign), Floyd says something and Janice says, "Sure Hon."

    To take a shot of something on your screen, hit the 'print screen' button, and then paste it into any image editing program, even just MSPaint. I don't know if macs have a similar feature.
