    The pictures from the Cd, and I dont think its been mentioned here yet, sorry if it has. They looked like they were pulled from the same photo shoot as 'Its a Very Mery Muppet Christmas Movie'.

    Did anybody else severely miss Robin? It seemed like he belonged here.

    Oh strange...are you sure he wasn't credited? Becuase it definitly wasn't Jerry doing Floyd...
  4. Can't wait to get this.

    I am 30 and the A Christmas Together CD is still the first one I put in every year after Thanksgiving!!!

    Which stores have you guys seen this CD at? I can't find it anywhere in Fargo, ND! Usually these things aren' hard to find around here, but I haven't seen it at Wal-Mart nor Best Buy!

    Saw it at Musicworld (for us Canuks) displayed prominently with their other new Christmas CDs for 9.99.

    I have that! I found that at an Esso station ten years ago for 6.99!
    Chirstmas music is always reasonable. Guess it has to be, since it only gets played for 6 weeks a year or so.

    I bought the CD at Hastings on Friday. I love the songs, but it really made me kinda sad to see the struggle going on to replace characters. Eric is doing a WONDERFUL job, and I would be willing to bet Frank having some hand in his training and choosing is a big part.

    I couldn't help but feel sorry for Bill hearing Dr. Teeth. I'm sure the reason he was picked is because he does the best, but it still sounds so off. The voice he uses for Rowlf could have been used for either, but I do like the way it panned out. I'm glad Pepe did get a song on the album, because it was something that Bill can't really be criticized for, voicewise (although WOW! who knew Pepe's voice went that high ;) )

    Hearing Rizzo and Gonzo was my joy on the album though! It was WONDERFUL to hear their playful banter and such. Although then I went into a pseudo-depression thinking about how much longer Dave Goelz will stay on before he retires......

    Something random, but I can just tell by hearing the background music that it has a 'Disney-esque' feel to it. The background girls sound like something off of Main Street USA performers...which doesn't really bother me, just an observation!

    Ordered it at the Spec's store where I bought/ordered the rest of my Muppet Cd and DVD's...
    But I'm still waiting for them to get this CD in stock.

    Just heard to Run Run Rudolph on MC Radio, a song originally recorded by Chuck Berry which suits the EM perfectly. After hearing to Bill Barretta's Dr. Teeth... Yes, it could be mistaken for Bobo... But in truth, to me it sounded as if he was doing a combination Hoots the Owl/John Goodman as Big McBopper Blue (Blues Brothers 2000) impersonation.
    Not bad... Needs a smidge of improvemnt though.

    Actually, I didn't buy the CD, but I listened to it at the CD preview thing they have. I only heard snippets (darn those snippets) and From what I can tell, I think Bill does a pretty good Dr. Teeth for his first try. Floyd tookl me a moment to register as Floyd. I thought it was Zoot, at first.

    Does Zoot talk on this album or not? From what's been said here, it sounds like he doesn't sing, but I thought I read that the album credits Dave Goelz as Zoot, and it would be weird to credit him if his voice isn't heard.

    What songs sound like they would have made the best music videos?

    minor muppetz, Zoot talks on the album just as much as he would in any of the films, but he does have a few speaking lines in "Man with the Bag". The best one being when Animal loses control on the drums and Zoot tries to calm him down by saying "Animal, Animal! Take your tablets." He is also referred to a few times by either Floyd or Dr. Teeth during the sax solos.

    What songs would be good as music videos? Probably any of the Electric Mayhem songs and maybe Pepe's number. That's about it though, in my opinion.

    Of course, Christmas Smorgasbord would be AMAZING as a video if well done..and I bet Christmas Queen could be done well (but I think I'm thinking as a skit and not a music video...but is there really a difference?)

    sarah_yzma Well-Known Member

    Zoot says "Thank you, thanks" after Floyd 'presents' him. I had no clue who it was until I listened and figure it out......

    I think it might be him saying "Animal, Animal! Take your tablets." But I could be wrong....
