    Does anyone know if Waldo from Muppet Vision 3D will come to a Muppet TV show or movie?

    He was actually made for JHH and then later used in Muppet vision 3d

    Waldo's Role On Star Wars

    If the Muppets do their version of Star Wars Waldo could play C-3PO or
    Yoda or maybe General Grevous

    Not Waldo specifically, but the Jim Henson Company just announced at Comic-Con that they are doing a new pre-school show based on the technology first developed for Waldo.

    A name was given and unfortunately I can't remember what it was. They did show a clip and explained how the technology had advanced to the point of being able to perform multiple characters at the same time in the same scene.

    When they first developed Waldo, it took a roomful of computer. Everyone knows how much computers have advanced, which allows them much more freedom.

    I will snoop around and see if I can find out the name of the series.

    Just a personal thing, but I would not be disappointed if Waldo is never seen again. I can't stand that thing. To me, if there was any bad part of Muppet Vision 3-D, it was him. So annoying. I say keep him locked up. :attitude:

    Sorry this took so long, but the name of the show is "Frances", based on the Frances Treasury of books. It is slated to air in 2006. They say it is "created by the The Jim Henson Company's revolutionary digital puppetry system".
