    Wow... that was... um.... interesting. Creative, certainly. Not to mention dark. As someone who has majored in this area, I wouldn't say that I would call this Film 101 quality - it's better than that, honestly.

    I wasn't saying the quality is Film 101, I'm saying that this really was this guy's film school project (I think there's information about that during the end titles).

    Reminiscent of Bobby Benson's babies, only more grotesque and disturbing than humorous and entertaining.

    Once again, this is an example that I would say A for effort, but the combination of poor performance and low quality video kind of makes it worse than it is. That, and whoever did this is calling this "Muppets."

    Now here's something I'm curious about. There was an old French children's block that aired in the '80s called Zappe! Zappeur. It was essentially about a lazy dog with an short attention span who has a habit of rapidly channel surfing, eventually causing it to explode in a Muppety fashion. It was a beloved show to many people in France who grew up in that period, so much so that no one has bothered to upload any taped footage yet. :confused:

    But the theme song does exist in album form.

    You know, in that case, I would actually eat it, as long as it doesn't scream in horror when I sink my teeth in... Oh wait, it's a wizard's hat.

    Some of this stuff makes me appreciate Nickelodeon's first show, "Pinwheel," a little more. Of course, your mileage may vary when it comes to the puppets and the puppetry used on it.

    Here is a REAL horrifying Christian puppet. Meet Stephanie, if you dare...



    Hideous, huh? The title says it all!

    This is obviously trying to cash in on the Cabbage Patch Kids craze, I'm sure.

    Okay, seriously?



    Whoever thought this was a brilliant idea ought to be spanked:



    Somewhere after the 0:50 mark: I didn't know Cruella's parents were Delores Umbridge and Count von Count! :eek:
