    As I recall, I don't think they had any interacting; I think only Elmo and the Detective said things to him. Yes, Jerry did voice him and the only humans other than the detective were Chris and Leela.

    I believe the only human (not counting Detective Bates) was Chris but he only appeared briefly. It did sound like Jerry voicing Mumford, but sadly he didn't really interact with Abby. They just happened to be in the same scene.

    I thought I'd make an edit here. I didn't see that someone else replied already, but that's okay because I forgot to mention Leela.

    About Mumford's appearance, that was great and all, but you'd think an a detective episode there would be some mention of Sherlock Hemlock. If I were him I would not want the others doing my job. Also when did they reference EW. I know they mentioned Elmo referring to himself in third person, but he's been doing that long before the segment started.

    I'm really not liking the 2 week wait for 2 new episodes, in cases 1 new episode.

    Why didn't they just, after a certain point, just have one new episode a week? They didn't even do a new episode every other week day for a stretch this year.

    I'm going through some personal stuff right now, and it kinda affected my enjoyment of the episode... anyway I just gotta ask, why did it take them so long to parody something like Iron Chef. I mean, Futurama parodied it before it was canceled the first time. But overall I guess it was fun. Jason was acting real hammy, that carried the humor of the episode. Loved the fact that Alan only won on technicalities because of that clumsy chef. Seems like they could have used anyone other than Elmo and it still would have worked. He was in all the new footage today.

    Amy Adams's appearance just before the Muppet movie. Only time she can't promote it.

    And I saw that Lever song a while back... I still don't get why we need it... catchy, yes... but strange.

    Today's street story was good. Finally, someone says Chris is annoying! The Amy Adams bit was cool. She is always so pretty. The Murray tune-ins were cool.

    Probably to give Bob some airtime. Lol. BTW, was it supposed to be pausing and everything during the whole song? That's what happened when I saw it, but when that was over, the picture was back to normal. I didn't know if the insert was supposed to be like that or if it was just my local TV station.

    I agree, something like that would have been a good time for Cookie Monster to make an appearance.

    Eh... I was destined not to like this one very much anyway. You'd think with Leela being the Yoga leader (whatever that's called, I don't care), they'd explain the Indian culture of it to some extent. I wonder if Telly's elbow being heavier than the other is some sort of inside reference to the type of puppet he is... other than that, the only laugh of the episode (Telly didn't nearly get frustrated enough for my taste) was Elmo's twisted yoga position and him hopping away at the end.

    Bruno Mars' new song was cute, but the style is was done in, you can't help but compare it to "What I Am" from last year.

    The street story today was cool. The new Murray tune-ins were cool. The Bruno Mars song was alright.
  11. Daffyfan4ever

    Daffyfan4ever Well-Known Member

    Yeah. I was thinking the same thing since I have heard that Pam Acrieo, or however you spell her name, often worked his left arm, or was it his right arm? I often get those two mixed up. Lol.

    I liked the song by the Count. It's nice that he got some airtime.

    I'm glad I waited to see that in the show.... it was THE highlight of the episode. I can't help feeling they did the street story before... I don't get why Elmo's there other than to have Elmo... I still think his pairing up with Abby is forced, and there's a gonk in the chemistry. Abby could have very well been there herself or any variety of other characters... other than that it was okay, I guess.

    And I have to say, the word on the street bits are getting way too repetitive again. Anytime Abby's there, you can tell that she's going to screw up her magic, turn someone into the word of the day, and that celeb is going to say "Hey! What happened?" EVERY SINGLE TIME! We get it... she's clumsy at magic.

    There's nothing I can say about Spider-Monster that isn't already obvious. Skits like this and G prove that the writers want to write sharp, fun, biting jokes, but are shackled by too many constraints that we all know well enough for me to have to repeat them. if only the rest of the show had that feeling... sometimes it does, but I fear that after the Pox News scandal, they have been playing it way too safe.

    I had the feeling of retread too when I read the plot and saw the preview. It thought it would be very similar to the one with Abby thinking Oscar was a prince.

    antsamthompson9 Well-Known Member

    The street story was pretty good. I liked the song. SpiderMonster was awesome! Frank Oz came back to do Grover.
  16. Daffyfan4ever

    Daffyfan4ever Well-Known Member

    Yeah. I liked that too. Though I can't help but compliment Eric on how good a job he does with Grover. It is often hard to tell the difference.

    I know what you mean. It's like Abby/Elmo stories and Prince and Frog stories have been done to death. I was sort of hoping they'd at least make a reference to Kermit at some point.

    True. I'd still like to see an ep with direct interaction between Abby and Mumford. Maybe Mumford could show her how to get better with magic when it turns out he keeps messing things up himself. Just a thought.

    Did "Elmo's World: Frogs" appear in the episode? That's the only Kermit appearance I'd expect to be in it (considering the street story involves a frog, it would have been great if they'd have shown something starring Kermit for once, like Tadpole or The Heart of a Frog).

    Yes it was Frogs with Elmo's World, and I agree that they should use Kemit more sicne he stared on Sesame Street.

    YAY! Now it's only a 2 week wait for one lousy episode! YAY!

    Did I complain about how they staggered these out enough yet?

    Really 3 months to show 9 episodes... :rolleyes:

    Plus, I gotta admit, very stupid that the Falling Leaves episode doesn't come out until snow covers them...

    Cool! Who called him annoying?
