    Just a reminder, NBC's Today Show will be devoting an entire half-hour to the new Muppet Whatnot Workshop at FAO Schwarz. After you watch the appearance, post here and let us know what you think. They'll be many Muppet friends making surprise guest appearances.

    You can configure your own custom Muppet Whatnot on-line. If you are thinking about getting a Muppet Whatnot of your own, you'll want to check out this special deal. If you use this link to order your Muppet Whatnot and enter code "FREESHIP813" at checkout you'll get free shipping.

I loved Stalare and Waldorf's Cabinet picks lol! this has been one of the best Muppet Apperancese in a long long time. I almost thought I was watching Muppets Tonight or something. all I can say is WOW!

    watched some of the clips on MSNBC...very funny from what I saw. Did anybody catch the cameos by Bill Baretta and Craig Shemin?

    Oh my! That's some of the funniest stuff I've seen in YEARS!

    Sorry Thatcher, but that whole Today Show segment was far funnier than the entire Muppets Wizard of Oz movie combined.

    Meredith, Ann, Al, and Willard were DEAD-ON, and the Willard Scott parody segment in the 8:00-8:30 time frame was absolutely hysterical!

    God bless you, Muppet Studios and Steve Whitmire. You brightened up my day for a long time to come.

    I've been watching the videos online and they are hilarious! I think that's Joey Mazzarino as Matt, Fran Brill as Mardith and Noel MacNeil as Al.

    OH MY GOSH! This was one of the best appearances by the Muppet by far. I really enjoyed everything. I really enjoyed the Behind the Scenes with the Crew, Mean Carl and the rats. Loved seeing that Rizzo wasn't there but it made me feel like this is how the Muppet Show was almost like as even Muppet Tonight as well. Who was the one character in the Studio. I know i've seen him before or her but what's his or her name?

    That was good. At first I thought it would be a disappointment and we'd just see the Muppet likenesses of Al, Michelle & Matt rather than the familiar Muppets that we all know and love, but I should have known that the Muppets wouldn't let us down. Plus this gives me an idea for a new signature quote.

    I did! ;)

    I really enjoyed their appearance! I also noticed that Big Mean Carl was not preformed by Bill Barretta, I wonder who it was?

    I taped it while I was at school and let me tell you that it was really good. It was so good that it was a lot better than I anticipated. It seems that Disney really is giving the Muppets a chance to shine again for a new generation of people. I give this appearance three Kermits. :):):)

    I give it, from the parts I've seen, 5 Kermits.. :):):) (+2)
