    I know, right!

    It's very... Rebellious against theaters and such. It's an innovative way of releasing movies, though, which is good, cause innovation is always in the Muppet spirit.

    I love it when the performers do the voices in interviews.

    Looks so good.

    And considering Bill is my favourite performer and Johnny is my favourite character of his. I can't wait to hear how he came to be.

    So many things I love about this. First of all, it's so great to hear Frank openly talking about the Muppets again (both in this preview and in general), and wonderful to see Jerry again.

    It's kind of crazy to think about that this documentary has been in the words for at least 5-6 years since they got Jerry to be on it. It's kind of sad that Jerry passed away just a few months later. (I'm just assuming this because he doesn't look to be in very good health.) :(

    The four surviving performers from the documentary have been having video chat conversations recorded and put online, and I've thought of two things that would have made for great opportunities with this:
    1. Talk about productions that have come out since the film was made (since they clearly wouldn't have been able to do so).
    2. Have video chat with some of the performers who were NOT included in the documentary, as a way of sort-of including them.

    It's recently hit me that the five people in this have rarely all worked together on the same thing, since Dave Goelz and Bill Barretta have rarely done Sesame Street and Fran Brill hasn't done much non-Sesame Street for Jim Henson. I think the only project to feature all five (and I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't all on-set at the same time) is The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland.
