    As someone who lives in Philadelphia, I know I'll be visiting the zoo this summer to check this out. Anyone else?

    Has anyone here seen this yet?I would love to hear from anyone here who has experienced it. I'm planning a trip to the zoo next weekend, and will definitely share my opinions with everyone afterwards.

    Terrible name, but great looking puppets and theme. This is one of those rare times the public can see real Muppets performed live and in person, so I definitely hope someone camcorders this. Also...wait a second, some of those puppets look familiar:)

    The name makes me think of totally radical surfer/skater dudes from the '80s. Or a rap album starring the Dinosaurs characters. :p

    The name seems more like a bad 1998/1999 marketing ploy, when everything was X-TREME! But alas this is some very cool news.

    I've been there to see it, and it's very entertaining. I saw Didi Dodo, Phibi Frog, Iggle Eaglet, Alfreda Cheeta, and Douc Langer.

    Great Exhibit! I hope the puppets used for X-tink-shun get to be used for Season 43 of Sesame Street.

    The animals were cute.
