Since I'm writing a letter, does anyone want to be in charge of the petition?
Hmmmm...do they have it on the website were on?
I'll do it!
EDIT: So how many signatures do we want?
Thanks! Are there options on how many signatures we want? 300 sounds a bit much, but thats what I would hope to get at least. How many people on this forum are willing to sign it?
Well, we don't want a number too small, then Disney won't listen, 300 is kinda small, you going to need a lot more than that.
I would aim for at least 1000,
Yeah, I wanted that to be the least amount.
I'll sign too!
Who should I address my letter to?
Dear Walt Disney Company?
or would "To whom it may Concern" be better?
Walt Disney Company.
Ok, I signed. Come on everyone! Sign this petition so we can get a EM Album! Thanks Mitchell, for making this!
I just signed it.
Perhaps if it consisted of only older recordings it could include:
Don't Blame the Dynamite
Where You At?
Can You Picture That?
You Can't Take No for an Answer
Sax and Violence
New York State of Mind
Rocking and Rolling Around the World
Love Ya to Death
Sweet Tooth Jam
If it were full of all-original recordings, I think they should cover a variety of music eras and give Dr. Teeth, Floyd, and Janice plenty of lead-singing/solo opportunities, in addition to multiple singers (and this is just assuming they don't include celebrity guests as well), maybe also put in an original song or two, maybe also an Electric Mayhem recording of a classic Muppet song that the band didn't originate.
Wow, that is exactly what I had put in my letter to Disney!
Hmm, I would LOVE the idea of an Electric Mayhem album, but I don't think Disney would want kids to be exposed to " Tenderly "
Why not? The song was released in Music, Mayhem, and More! in 2002. I think it would be fine.
Someone should write a song for Zoot to sing.
That would be nice, but I don't think that would be in his character. He is sort of shy, and I don't think he would step out to sing a solo song. Playing sax, on the other hand, is a different story...
Ok, so here's my letter. Am I missing anything? Let me know!
Dear Walt Disney Company,
Hello! My name is Casey ------ *, and I am a huge Muppet fan. Ever since I was 8 I have loved the Muppets. I was really thrilled about your revival of Jim Henson’s characters in The Muppets. I realize you are in the process of making another Muppet movie, scheduled to be released in Summer 2013. I have a suggestion that I know many people (and fans) would like.
Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem is a group of fan-favorite characters. Of all the Muppet albums released, not one had only the Electric Mayhem. So, I am suggesting that you release an album by this great band. I was thinking you could sell this as a tie-in to the release of The Muppets 2. We have started a petition to show you how many Muppet fans would buy this CD.
You can find it at:
If you were to make this album, I suggest that you take a good picture for the front, instead of using stock photos. You have beautiful Muppet posers, but we rarely see you use them. Many fans have already suggested songs you could put on the album. We think it would be nice to include some of the Electric Mayhem’s classic songs, as well as some new, popular rock songs. Here are some ideas of what songs you may want to include.
· Can You Picture That? (The Muppet Movie)
· Night Life (The Great Muppet Caper)
· You Can’t Take No For an Answer (The Muppets Take Manhattan)
· Money (The Muppet Show)
· Tenderly (The Muppet Show)
· Cheese Cake (The Muppet Show)
· Mr. Bassman (The Muppet Show)
· Barnyard Boogie (The Muppet Show)
· Rockin’ Robin (The Muppet Show)
You might also want to record some new songs such as:
· The Rainbow Connection
· Bein’ Green
· Halfway Down the Stairs
· Cottleston Pie
Now, I understand you are a very busy company, and have lots of things to do, but please consider my idea. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, as it means a lot to me.
