    Yet it is good to see him get his comeuppance for his stunts with the bullhorn once in a while. For example, the episode with the girl who was ultra-sensitive to sunlight: Ty's being annoying with the bullhorn, and one of the workers pushes him into the pool. Got him sopping wet, and shorted out the bullhorn.

    Or the episode with the two homeless families - everyone pelted Ty with snowballs when he came out of the house after doing his "24 hours" spiel.

    I'd still like to know whose bright idea it was to smuggle the bullhorn in to Ty while he was in the hospital, though.

    I agree with you completely; I feel the same way. In these times, we have to support them or we could lose them.

    Your welcome anytime. I thought that might be better than me doing it from memory.

    Lets be happy that there is new Muppet stuff to see. We are all Muppet fans that use these forums and I would guess that we are probably the biggest muppet fans out there. We dont need to pick apart what makes us happy and if the Muppets no longer make you happy then you shoud look forward to the old stuff coming out on DVD but let us fans who are still interested in the new stuff enjoy the new stuff. :cool:

    I dont want to come off as a jerk :grouchy: and I know I am fairly new to MuppetCentral and I think we are blessed :halo: with one of the best fan sites for anything out there.

    I'm usually the LAST person to say anything negative about the muppets... BUT...

    I absolutely abhore and dispise Extreem Make over home edition... and I feel this is pretty much what Disney has planned for the Muppets. I know I sound off today, but I don't think Disney is winning me over.

    I mean, they slashed the Palisades contract, so we'll never see Sal to go with Johnny, they filmed a reality TV show, the movie doesn't look too good, and, considering this is the same company that ruined the Jungle Book by making a pointless sequal, I'm not holding out much hope.

    I feel this is the beginning in a long line of ABC promotional crossovers... and we all know what kind of garbage the network has for "Family entertainment." I mean, if they appear on extreem makover, what's to stop them from putting them on their loser sitcoms like 8 simple rules or Hope and Faith?

    Oh well... at least Disney decided to make a Muppet Season set... I guess that should count as something.

    Edit: I actually did some reasoning myself. Personally, the shock of seeing them on a reality TV show was what really disappointed me. But I guess this will bring the Muppets back into peoiples houses, so it is a good and bad thing... sort of a gray area. I just hope there's less reality TV appearaces in the future....

    I dont think the reality show is such a bad idea as long as it is a one time deal. I think it would give people that dont normally get the chance to see how much a work goes into just a short Muppet segment. It also does give the Muppets exposure, and like I said before we need to be happy that we are seeing the Muppets used at all. I do understand why people are concerned but I really feel like things are just now sarting to look up for the Muppets because Disney has the means to take them places.

    I think the movie looks excellent so far. I have been very impressed with what I have seen.

    Bigger and better things to come

    I thought the Muppets would pop out of the closet and surprise the kids. But I enjoyed the snippets of the Muppets at work.

    I look at these appearances on someone else's show as a bonus for us Muppet fans- just icing on the cake. The characters' schtick is not going to be as edgy or surprising as it would be in a movie. They usually play it pretty safe (Miss Piggy flirts with the host, Kermit talks about his days in the swamp), but it's still good to see old friends. And it keeps the Muppeteers working! The place to really judge the direction of the Disneyized Muppets will be in Muppets Wizard of Oz, when they're doing their OWN thing.

    Or are they? Will Oz be an hourlong commercial for Ashanti??? We shall see...

    To do the amount of work they did on that show in a week and have clowns & Muppets hanging around had to be pretty wild to say the least.

    :) I really enjoyed the appearance. :)
