Your Thoughts: MC's 14th Birthday

    Happy birthday! Muppet Central is now 14 years old. The site debuted 14 years ago on January 28, 1998.

    Back when the site first started The Jim Henson Company still owned all of their original properties including the Muppets and Sesame Street. Two new feature films were in development simultaneously, Muppets From Space and Elmo in Grouchland. Even though many changes have occurred throughout the EM.TV and Disney years, we’ve been honored to be a small part of it and to provide a place for fan discussion and interaction.

    We want to thank all of the staff, past and present who have given so much of their time and giftings to make Muppet Central a great place. Every member here is a vital part of what makes Muppet Central special. Thanks for doing your part in keeping Jim Henson’s vision of the Muppets alive. We believe great days are ahead.

    While we’re celebrating fourteen years, we are also looking towards the future. What do you think the future holds for the Muppets especially after the new film last year? What is your prediction for 2012?

    Share your opinions in the below discussion and let us know what you think will happen with the Muppets in this upcoming year.

    Happy birthday Muppet Central! As for the Muppets, I think they're gonna do plenty more specials, possibly a movie in a few years! But for this forum, I hope more people see it and join the Muppet Central family! Happy Birthday! Have a very sensational, celebrational, Muppetational one!

    Happy 14th Birthday Muppet Central!!! :)

    Great menu on the home page!

    Within the next 4 years I'm hoping to see, more specials, a new TV series, another movie, DVD releases of The Muppet Show seasons 4 and 5, and Muppets Tonight, and Blu-Ray releases of all the Muppet films. I would also like to see season sets of Sesame Street and Bear in the Big Blue House. Oh, and some of the older Muppet specials on DVD.

    I hope that isn't asking to much.

    As a "long-time listener, first-time caller" type, I'm very happy to see this forum doing so well and being so active. As a moderator of a MAD Magazine forum (www.madmumblings.com) I know what it's like to see a Web site dedicated to a still-thriving "classic" franchise go through peaks and valleys every so often, so I tip my hat to all of you - mods, members, WhatNots, Frackles, etc. - who work so hard to make this a "go-to" site for Muppet maniacs.

    As for "what's next for the Muppets" - I was extremely happy to see The Muppets do so well from a critical and box-office perspective but especially to see how the mainstream media embraced them so extensively in 2011 and early '12. I think this momentum will lead to more Muppet productions - perhaps just small-scale things like TV specials (is that Hallowe'en special still a go?) and virals - over the next year, with the potential for a regular TV show in late '12 or 2013 and a new movie in '14 or '15. No doubt about it: The Muppets are back!!!

    I also think the next Muppet projects will focus on comedy and satire, to offset the nostalgic and occasionally wistful tone of The Muppets (and Letters To Santa for that matter). Let the mayhem - Electric and otherwise - begin!!!

    Maybe they'll make a prequel to Piggy, like they did for Kermit. Face it, the public wants to know.:)

    Okay, so I have been guilty of not being on here at all basically in the last two years. (This is one of the first times I am using the new forum set up.) I just wanted to say Happy Birthday!!! I am looking forward to many years to come and being a main part of the forums again. I miss you guys.
