    Exactly. Something wrong with the line up that doesn't make sense. If Frank only wanted to concentrate on early Muppet history, then he could be excused for not inviting steve, Eric, Matt, and the others, but then Bill is out of place, and as Fran is there, then Caroll should be there over Bill. I can feel a song coming on...." One of these things is not like the other" but using people instead of objects!

    Bill moved relatively high up the ranks in a short amount of time and is heavily involved behind the scenes on many modern Muppet projects, so that could have something to do with it.

    And this is about discussing TMS, no? It wouldn't make too much sense for Caroll to be there, since his involvement with the Muppets was almost exclusive to SST (with the exception of Big Bird guest starring on TMS with Leslie Uggams).

    Frank seems like a very interesting person to have a conversation with. He definitely seems much nicer than some people make him out to be.

    The same can be said about Fran, so I assumed that she being there, that the interview isn't exclusively about "The Muppet Show".

    Well, she did perform in the Sex and Violence pilot, not to mention other early Muppet projects such as the Santa Claus switch - and she also holds a distinction of being the first female Muppet Performer hird by Jim since Jane's retirement.

    I think she was only on there twice or something.

    Just found an interesting tidbit from Frank's recent AMA. When asked if he would be open to doing another film with other performers not featured in this one, he responded:

    Yeah, the release date has been known since October, but available for purchase and download via their website... That’s innovating right there.

    Oh sorry, didn't know that. But I'm glad we won't have to wait 5 million years for it to go on DVD this time unlike I am Big Bird. :grr:

    Really cool that the release just happens to be the same month as the premiere of the new Muppet Babies.

    OMG I LOVE IT! I NEED THIS RIGHT NOW.
    It's soooo good to hear Jerry's voice again. Also, I didn't know he had a ponytail?

    It's really cool that they're making the documentary available on their website. Originally I thought I would have to wait 2 years before I could see it! :eek:
