    Just a reminder Kermit and Piggy will be co-hosting Disney's annual Christmas parade with Regis and Kelly on ABC. Gonzo and Bear will be making appearances as well. There are bound to be some nice surprises in store so be sure not to miss this special appearance.

    If you're in FL or MA how could you have possibly seen it? It doesn't start until 1:00 PM here on the east coast.
  5. Time machine?

    It's 3/4 ver and most of it is a commercial for Disney, which is to be expected. There was a fantastic commercial for the WoO movie. It really looks good. I saw Scooter and Sweetums as well as Sam and Bunsen and Beaker. There were also some interesting new creatures that are residents of Oz. I think this will be a good movie.

    Good, but disappointing

    Now, don't get me wrong I absolutely love the Muppets and the minute I saw Kermit and Miss Piggy hosting the parade I jumped for joy. But then I remembered that Disney owns them now and that still bothers me. It's just not the same. I was excited to see the first comercial for Muppet Wizard of Oz during the parade and it looks like it's going to be another winner.
  7. So what about the performance didn't you like that you attribute to Disney, or was it just the idea of Disney owning them and not an actual actions?

    One thing I do not like is the new Piggy puppet. It looks too thin in te face and the eyes are too big. Kind of disturbing.

    excellent! I was miffed, I sat through a good amount of the cringe and vomit inducing usual Regis/disney banter just to see the very short Muppet portions...and then completely missed the Oz preview. Anyways, do post that when ya can, you'll be a hero:) Or...just really swell:)

    Anyways, I guess the best part of what I saw was Gonzo pimpin out the theme park's 50th annv rehauling...which kind of reminded me of Muppets@WDW special(one of my fave all time specials) Tho...it was kin dof disheartening seeing the Muppets having to seem jazzed about Disneylands 50t when the Muppets *themselves* 50th annv is next year.
  17. Yeah, no mention of the muppets 50th or any real muppet attraction in developement. They didn't even show a clip of that muppet party thing they do. The way Gonzo did it was very Gonzo like though, I don't like the new look for him either, though that's been used since MFS. Plus it's nice to see Gonzo in a sweater again. I always liked the sweater thing on Gonzo. A nice conservative outfit for an out there wild character.

    Sure, that's easy, I'll make an avi version of it. I'll be busy tomorrow during the day, but I should be able to edit the Muppet footage together tomorrow night.

    I was very impressed and pleased with it. Kermit and Piggy were incorporated far more than I thought they would be...I DID miss the part with Gonzo, which kinda miffed me, but I'll live ;)

    I also noticed the difference in the Piggy puppet..I also noticed the differences that have appeared in Steve's voice. (not a complaint by any means, just an observation) When going for a 'YAY' or 'YEAH' It seemed Steve wasn't going up for the high part that usually appears. Instead, it ends on a quite lower note. I'm just curious if this has appeared before, or if maybe it was a product of some sort of coincidence....just curious if someone else has noticed this?
