    I taped it..... it was nice to have Sesame at the start of the parade. Hoots and barkly there was a treat and Kermit at the end of the parade (with "Rainbow" song playing) what a nice way to open and end the parde with Muppets! :)

    I'm still watching it on some delayed feed from Texas, so there's Muppets at the end? I shall stay tuned!

    I saw Kermit's balloon. How lovely to hear a band playing the Rainbow Connection, i thought it was really well done.

    Gosh the Sesame float was AWESOME! I loved seeing Grover, Prairie Dawn, Ernie and Bert with Abby, Hoots, Barkley, Cookie Monster, Alice Snuffleupagus, BOB, SUSAN, Maria, Luis, and everybody! I was very impressed with the float.

    And Kermit's baloon was awesome, as always. Loved hearing "Rainbow Connection" being played, thought that was incredible.

    Overall, a great year for the Muppets at the parade! :excited:

    I thought the camers people could have been better. During the Sesame Street performance, there were times when certain characters sang, but weren't on camera.

    I thought the same thing i also thought it interesting that SS was at the very beginging of the parade and then Kermit was at the end.

    I missed that. I was at church around 9 this morning. so I didn't see the beginning. Who was there in the line of character balloons? I heard that Abby Cadaby was going to make her debut here.

    Almost missed Kermit but caught him just before we left. I loved the Sesame Street float. Would've loved to have a Muppet float with the Kermit balloon though. Oh well.....beggars can't be choosers and some Muppety goodness is better than none at all.

    Happy Thanksgiving MuppetCentral!

    I agree with you there! They were great at the very beginning and with Bob singing his solo right into the camera, but then for the majority of the number, the camera was not on whoever was singing. Oh well... still a wonderful treat to see the cast year after year. Cute to See Hoots sharing Big Bird's nest too. Was The Count there though? I don't remember seeing him. Was curious as to why I didn't see Gordon on the float this time, and no sign of Chris (the newest human addition either). Atleast the rest of the grownup cast was there though. Even Susan! I guess if we never see her on the show, we get to see her once a year on a float for a couple minutes. Kinda weird, but oh well. Also...not that I don't like Alice (I love her), but it's funny that she was on the float and we really never see her on the show anymore. However, Snuffy is never on the float and he's a regular character. I'm happy they chose that song. Anybody know any of the other songs they've sung in past years?

    Yeah, The Count was in the same window as Murray Monster. You could barely see him right at the begining, behind Miles and Gabi and random kids.

    I thought Muray had his own window

    I loved that Barkley was on the float, that was thrilling! They did film the wrong people at times. More research should have been done, but then again it is difficult filming a live event like that. The parade is often awkwardly filmed.

    Nope, he was right next to Count.

    ...At least I think he was. :p That's how I remember it anyway.

    Me too.

    I wonder if Jerry and Caroll were both able to perform on the float?:concern:
  19. dwayne1115

    dwayne1115 Well-Known Member

    Well i think the songs where recorded so even if they where not there on the float then they where more then likely at the recording. I know Carol did Big Bird but where was Oscar.

    Now about Snuffy not ever being at the parade i think it would be very hard to get him out of the studio they have him hanging from the top of the sound stage anyways. The only time i ever think he has been out side was in FTB so having Alice is a nice sub.

    Wow i never knew that so many people love Barkley. He is a wonderful dog i wish i could have him as my pet.

    I have to agree. For some reason the Director (or Tecnical Director) totally lost it during this sequence. Not sure what happened but he missed all the shots during the characters key moments of song. Surprising since the whole Parade was directed by Gary Halvorson, the same guy who has directed Muppets Tonight! and Dinosaurs. It was nice though to see all of Jim Henson's (not Sesame Workshop's) original Sesame Street Muppets still getting the attention today!
