    Yeah I mostly do that too. It certainly fits in with GMC. But then MTM comes along and confuses everyone! Lol, it's still my favorite though. :insatiable:

    I like to think of TMTM as a more realistic origin story for the Muppets, since the idea of a bunch of the Muppet crew being in college and trying to make it on broadway...leading up to present time when they perform in a rented out theater, made more sense to me than them randomly making it to Hollywood.

    It fit better than the idea of them becoming rich and famous in Hollywood.

    Well of course, but who said it had to be realistic when a frog can sing and dance ;)? I think if anyone could suddenly become rich in famous in the dream like way, it is the muppets :excited:!

    Assuming of course that's canon. Like it was said, Kermit said TMM was an approximation. If Muppet Babies isn't canon because Piggy was making it up, how does Kermit making something up make it canon?

    Emily doesn't have to remember the gang (though she did think Kermit was "the lizard"). If I met my classmates from kindergarten today I wouldn't recognize them, probably. I haven't seen them in 25 years. And besides the baby videos, let's not forget she ATTENDED an episode of TMS. She either doesn't remember because she couldn't (due to age or something) or she didn't want to.

    I liked the special. It would have been great if it had more adult humor (and more characters), but it's okay. It's interesting how the Muppets were usually just hanging out in the apartment building hallway. Claire's apartment was the only one that we really saw the inside of.

    And it feels great to see one of Bunsen's inventions not backfire on Beaker.

    For me, the highlights were the musical numbers, Beaker using the wish machine, and Crazy Harry's quick cameo.

    I thought it was pretty good. But it will hopefully be better when it comes on DVD.

    John Kennedy wasen't in the cratics, so I don't think he did Floyd.

    You know... After watching LTS last night and listening to My Best Christmas Yet just now on MCR... The part where Pepe talks to Claire and the arrival of Kevin the Snail are parts from the extended version. Makes me glad to have found that out. :)

    I tend to mix it up, and think that TMM is loose cannon (A loose cannon?), but that instead of trying to get into Hollywood, they were getting into college. TMTM then follows on naturally.

    I watched the DVD this week - the surprises after the credits were hysterical! They just kept coming and coming - a very nice addition to the set. I also liked the snails. "Run for you liiiiiiiiife!"

    I got the DVD last night and I love it! The added scenes were funny and the bloobers were hystiracal! Since, it's in widescreen I hope this means that the Studio DC DVD will be in widescreen. Because I found out that the Studio DC specials were filmed in HD.
