Your Thoughts: Big Bird on Deal or No Deal

    Tonight Big Bird is making a special prime time appearance on NBC's "Deal or No Deal." This will be a special two-hour Christmas episode of the popular game show.

    If you are setting a DVR or VCR you'll want to record later than than the two-hour time-slot as the show might not get started until later due to the NFL game with the Cowboys and Eagles.

    Why is Big Bird on "Deal or No Deal" you ask, watch tonight and find out. Then post your thoughts here after you see the appearance.

    It's kinda sad. This is the first recent TV appearance I've remembered to record, and I really wanted to see Kermit. :sympathy:

    Oh, well. I'm sure the Bird will be great!

    I don't understand this show....currently I'm watching it (no BB yet) and what is the goal?...are they going for the lowest amount to get more money? and whats with the shadowy spooky guy in the booth?

    So far I've watched the whole show on mute.......

    Oh....I hope they have more later on....

    ....well....thats nice that the guy got over his fear of BB....I liked how BB snuck up on him...and then the guy ran up and hugged him....the guys kids were cut. That one smaller kid was like "what?!?"

    Basically, each box contains a certain amount of money. No one knows how much money is in each box (ranging from a penny to a million dollars). The banker keeps offering the contestant money for the box the contestant "owns", hoping it contains a million dollars (or a large sum of money). The goal is to get rid of the boxes with the lowest amount of money in them, if you can, driving the banker's offer up.

    I just saw Big Bird on it! I think it's Caroll Spinney playing the Bird! Cooooool!

    ... that's it, though? Kind of a short appearance.

    It was just to psych out the guy that was afraid of him, not much more. Still pretty funny to see him just walk onto a game show, though.

    Yep... That's what I was waiting to see, saw it with a friend of mine who was here for a bit of Christmas cheer.

    It was definitely Caroll Spinney performing Big Bird.
    The great thing: BB referenced the Season 3 premiere from the Old School Volume 1 set.
    Big Bird said that the guy reminded him of his best friend, Snuffy and how Big B was afraid of Snuffy when they first met.
    The funny thing: Big B, trying to bolster the guy's hopes delivered the same mantra he was quoting from earlier in the game, "If you believe, you will achieve".

    A good appearance... Though I'm not watching that show again, lest there be another Muppet appearance. Just wasn't ribbetting for me.
    Oh well, sure hope others got to see the bird's walk-on bit on tonight's episode.

    I totally forgt about it. didn't even realize until just now.

    The game is process of elmination, The fewer cases there are, the morel ikely your case has a larger amount. If you open al arge amount, you then know you don't have it. So if you open all the cases and none of them have 1 million, yours has the million.

    A fan of Howie Mandel's work... but not a fan of that show. I didn't catch on till last night, and almost everyone i know, watches it.

    Like everyone said... you want to have the box with the million. in order to find out if u have it, you have to guess which ones have the lower amount, to show the banker, theres a high chance u have of having a good amount. So, he'll offer you more n more money... but say u'v knocked out all the high numbers but 1, then he'll lower his offer.

    Through out the game you can take his offer (Deal) or choose to stick with the game (No Deal) and find out if u have that million.

    I like 1 VS 100 ALOT more... its easier to understand and ridicules to see how many people in the mob get so many EASY questions wrong.

    I loved his appearence, and was affride that he'd be mean to Big. He had that PO'd face when he ran off stage.

    Very intresting appearence... i was watch'n it n thought he'd be on, but wasnt sure. THen they mentioned the guy being afraid n i was more certain why he'd be on, since the last contestent was sung to.

    I saw it last night. I like Deal or No Deal. It is a great show to watch.

    ... who watches Deal or No Deal for the gameplay?

    Such a shame Big Bird walked on. He distracted me from the girls for a second! :) ;) :)

    Yep. I'd know Carroll's voice anywhere. I haven't seen the ep where BB was afraid of Snuffy, but I'd believe it. The original Snuffy was scary looking. Lol. Anyway, I really enjoyed that. It's funny because I used to be afraid of :halo: . I guess if I ever went on that snow, he'd sneak up on me. Lol.

    I would go ON the show just for BB sneaking up on me!.......

    Well, I posted it was going to happen, I got everybody all ready for it.

    Guess who missed it! After all that, I'm the one who forgot. Can somebody put it up on YouTube.com?

    It was really cool to see BB! He was as kind and sweet as ever, but his exit was a little awkward. It seemed like Howie wanted to hug him or somethin' and BB was like "Whatever, see you later." :smirk:
  17. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter New Member

    Well, there's probably a good explanation for that. If I remember right, Big Bird wasn't really facing Howie, so there was really no way for Caroll to see what was going on. He was probably wearing a video monitor, but that still doesn't tell you the host of a show wants to hug you! :)

    I've always wanted to see Skeeter meet a Muppet outside of Muppet Babies. :D

    I dunno.....all of the walking was sort of awkward and a lot of the eye contact was off it seemed.....so maybe it was that one removable feather.

    Also, as BB was leaving Howie sort of wispered "this way" or "Here" or something and it looked to me as if he was guiding him towards the stairs....

    I live in a different timezone, so Deal or No Deal came on even later here... I ended up falling asleep on the couch. (It was 2 AM)

    It sounds like it was a good appearance though, hopefully someone puts it on Youtube!
