I feel the exactly the same way. There's nothing wrong with nostalgia; it's important to people and kids can like it too. It's nice that the Muppets are trying new things, but it wouldn't matter if they never did another project. Their classic stuff speaks for itself, it was their best work. And like any decent work of art, it doesn't get old. I think John Denver & The Muppets: A Christmas Together is at barnesandnoble.com, and I really want to hear that. Why should I complain that I can't hear Janice or original voices, when I don't have to? (And I agree, the album, not the special. The Muppets were barely there! lol) It's OK if others want to hear this CD or the new stuff. That's their perogative and I don't want to debate. This is just how I feel.
