    I like the whole every episode thats aired. I know its hard to hear our favorite muppets use words they normaly don't hear them say but its like some of the theard have said on their post, "Its late night tv its not church." I thought the comdey was a little rude but thats how he is. And yes Animal's vocie was not the same but it was fun seeing Animal and Kermit together on the show. The Bachelor seemed happy to met Kermit. But I can't wait until tonights. Maybe there will be some other Muppet character on there. One thing I was hoping for was to see Animal at the very end of the show go over and sit next to Kermit but he didn't.

    SEE KERMIT TONIGHT! :) YAAAAAAAAAAAAA! *waving hands in air*

    Gosh. It seems like not a lot of puppeteers are available for this. It seems like Bill is one of the only pupateers we have this week. It's just him, Steve and Dave. It's hard to believe that he's performing both Statler and Animal. That probably would explain why Statler hasn't appeared on last night's show. Bill was probably busy performing Animal. You would think if they're using him this often, we'd see more of Pepe.

    Or maybe Rowlf...I'd love to see him get a decent comeback.

    Hey gang,
    Been recording each episode, and hope to get the last two, as well, in case anyone missed anything or is perhaps interested in a trade. I feel the same as a lot of you guys. Nice to see Kermit around, getting some airtime, as well as plugs for the DVD and game. Actually, it's nice to see any new Muppet stuff, at all at this time. I mainly am trying to catch up on old stuff I've never seen, such as downloading TMS eps I can find, waiting to have money to buy all the DVDs, the new releases of the Christmas NBC movie, John Denver specials, Ed Sullivan, and just about everything else out there, except for the main six movies, even though I don't have all of those DVDs, but that's mostly due to the lack of widescreen on 2 of them. Either way, I do hope we get some more characters appearing in the remaining appearances. Though I believe the S&W segments were pre-recorded, as they didn't seem to mention them or have any audience reaction to them, I'm not sure if Dave's around, but it at least show's he's been involved. I really am holding out for a Gonzo appearance, as he's my absolute favorite, especially with his incredible action figure hitting stores near me. If only I had some money. Otherwise, the show itself is pretty bad, wish I wasn't wasting tape on all the rest. Well, maybe I'll get some trades out of it. Still, better than nothing, I guess. Hope this will lead to more, and higher-profile, appearances, maybe even the long-awaited movie and this Lisa Henson-attached movie. That's it, for now. Take care.

    Someone mentioned earlier that the S&W segments were taped last Friday.

    As for the audience reaction to them, we were told during the break, "this time when we exit the break, please be very, very quiet, no applause" (usually, we were told to make as much noise as possible when exiting the break). Then they showed the S&W segment (we weren't told either that it was S&W coming up, just to be quiet).

    Apparently it has been confirmed as Bill. Steve was going to do it, but Bill got it at the last minute. BlueFrackle is the source of the information. Apparently it came from a good source. :sing:

    Well, they just showed Kermit with shades, singing the ABC's with Uncle Frank, and another S&W segment:

    :boo:Y'know, I really envy that Jimmy Kimmel.
    :sleep:Oh, why's that?
    :boo:He's the only one who doesn't have to WATCH Jimmy Kimmel!
    :sleep::boo: HA HA HA HA HA HA!

    :boo:What, you already forgot Jimmy's monologue?
    :sleep::boo: HA HA HA HA HA HA!

    Go Statler and Waldorf!!!

    What was Kermit doing on Thursday's show? I was asleep unfortunately.

    Kermit was VERY edgy! Wow! He came in with sunglasses on for his intro which looked really cool when he flipped them off, he then sang a quick short song with a line about being "a sex machine with a certain hogg!" He had a very funny bit with Uncle Frank, (the only guy on this show that's good besides Kermit)

    They had Kermit and Uncle Frank talk in a room taped earlier and Uncle Frank didn't know that they were being filmed. Jimmy said they wanted to know what would happen if they just let Kermit and uncle Frank talk as if they were two men talking. Then they showed the taped and Uncle Frank couldn't believe it! LOL! They sang the ABC's together and Uncle Frank talked about how's he's good with certain things like when some one dies he can identify the body....and he talked about past jobs and Kermit yawned.LOL! Kermit said he was the nicest guy and gave him a thumbs up! It was all random stuff, they "said" they taped for an hour I guess, but of coures they could only show a little bit.

    Kermit then was getting frisky with Sarah Silverman, (who wasn't rude to him like I thought she seemed on the Killborn show last year.)
    Also going back to Wensday night, Kermit has said....(porn) on tv before, which was on the Killborn show.

    I liked at the end when Jimmy mixed up the DVD box, he meant to show a music DVD for a DJ that was filling in with the band that night but he was mistakenly holding up the IAVMMCM DVD! lol! He then caught himself and said "oh no! not this!" and then threw it down :smirk: but it was funny!

    No surprise Muppet last night, but maybe tonight? it would be SOOOO cool if they could have Kermit, Gonzo, and Pepe all out at the same time! Tonight's the last night right? or is there a Saturday show? i don't think so, but i could be wrong?

    Yeah, kind of like :p and :( , except Ernie definitely prefers Duckies to Juggies, and I'm sure Bert is more interested in Bottlecaps than in "Bueller, Bueller, Bueller."

    Yeah, our frog got pretty edgy last night. He denied being one of the typical guests that Jimmy has "relations," with. I won't actually get into the details of the his other comment--let's just say that one of the guests made a comment about some of her more "personal" body parts, and Kermit responded "that's more than I can say!" If you saw it, I'm sure you noticed, and if not, then someone else can tell you, because I don't really want to think about the implications of that comment. :o

    Still, it was pretty funny. I really don't mind the edginess, since it's so late at night and it's just the general tone of the show. Steve is doing a great job keeping Kermit involved in the interviews and segments, and keeping him hip enough to seem like he fits in naturally. I'm really getting a kick out of :boo: and :sleep: as well--their comments are such classic exchanges between the two.

    In short, hooray for the Muppets! :)

    Hey does anyone know what Kermit said when that comic told Jimmy the other night "what you couldn't get the robot from lost in space?" Kermit said "he wasn't avaiable" but then kinda muttered, "now that's enough of that" and gave a sheesh face. It was something like that,, i've listened to it a few times now. Kermit biting back? He shoulda said it louder! :)

    I also liked the "Kermit? Termite!" thing, with that kid, I thought he said Kermit too at first. ;)

    I am 100% completely happy with this whole week of Muppets on Jimmy Kimmel. I loved everyminute of Animal on there, Statler and Waldorf, and of course Kermit. Kermit proves, that no matter what kind of offensive shiatsu storm Jimmy or guests throw, he can handle it. And thats what I like about Kermit.
    I remember some truly unruly comments during the Muppetfest q&a and Kermit handled it fine...and *this* is why he's the Muppet leader! ^_^

    The 'omg his voice is so off' debate I think is obsolete. I don't think any regular person watching tv is going "I do say Nigel, prey tell what kind of poppycock is this 24.7% decibels off doppleganger faux Animal?"

    As for the recent 'edgy' debate...hey, c'mon, it's 2003, almost 2004.
    Most polls show kids and teens are out of touch with the Mupepts (as far as the Muppet Show Muppets) and that the crux of their audience is the late teen to older crowd. While there is zippo JHC/Muppet news, I hope to see more of these great appearences to make up for it in the meantime.

    Yeah, I've noticed the chemistry between Kermit and Sarah. I sort of thought she didn't like him when they were on the Kilborn show. Maybe, she was just aggressive while playing Yambo, or whatever that game was. I also noticed that it was an error where Kermit says he's never said "porn" on TV. Maybe, he was referring to "The Muppet Show" or "Sesame Street" and wasn't talking about talk show interviews. Just my guess.

    I had a feeling somebody would say that in response to my post. Yeah, it would be great to see more of Rowlf, but I still don't know how often the Henson company wants to use him. I don't know if they want to keep him retired as a tribute to Jim or not. We'll have to wait and see.

    1. Watch play off games.
    2. Clean your room.
    3. Decide what to have for dinner.
    4. Look at the menu and see what they're serving
    5. Realize you're the only person on these threads who still makes lists like these.
    6. Try to think of what else to do while waiting 120 seconds.

    Well, Sara was on the FOX show "Greg the Bunny". [If you don't know, it was a parody of children's shows, where the puppets have real life problems (ie, ex-wives, alcholism, etc). I personally thought it was a great show.] ANYWAY, therefore, she's very experienced interacting 'naturally' with puppets, so it probably came naturally to her.

    Kermit and Frank singing the alphabet together seemed surprisingly sweet for this type of show.

    Well I've loved every episode can't wait for tonights last show. Hope they have at least some other muppets other then Kermit, Staler and Wolrudf(bad spelling)
    That was sweet to see a Fank and Kermit have a sesions together. Loved how Kermit couldn't take some of what Frank was talking about. Well last night, that is unless he's on some other nights? Here's to Jimmy and the rest of the crew for having Kermit and friends on his show. Like some one said it may bring out how alot of people love to watch muppets even w/ out their all their friends.
