Street Season 48
Sesame Street's 48th season
officially began Monday August 6 on PBS. After you see the new episodes,
post here and let us know your thoughts.
Discussion in 'Muppet Appearances' started by Phillip, Aug 3, 2008.
I got an email back after I requested Studio DC for DVD:
Wow this really cool that you contacted them thank you for posting the response i was thinking about this today .
I really hope that they will put all the studio DC almost live on DVD .
I think that they are waiting for more than two shows to be produced .
That would make sense to me .
I really hope that they keep makeing this great show with the muppets on it .
It would not be the same with out them
It was on earlier this afternoon.
maybe when all instalments they are planning to make are released on tv then they will put them all on one dvd
I just hope the second Studio DC has Rowlf in....wait a minute! What am I saying? He might not be there anyway. Maybe he'll get his comeback in the new Segel movie or this year's Christmas Special.
The original Studio DC is replaying on Disney Channel currently--it's almost over, but I'd just like to post something else about my thoughts of it... My friend and I were talking and she summed up perfectly how I felt about the special by reminding me of something Jim Henson once said to Carroll Spinney, "I liked what you were TRYING to do."
I liked Studio DC, but I liked what they were trying to do more. It was a good effort, and I think the next one will finally solidify this effort.
The Cheetah Girls Piggy clip from The View doesn't give me much hope. I know the pig's supposed to be out of step with the routine, but she also seems to be out of touch in her own right in that number. I adored her appearance on The View, but this clip isn't quite up to the earlier standards set by Piggy in all of her other fantastic recent appearances. The pig sounds flatter than she ought to sound. Does that make sense? She has really been so good lately she was due to hit a brief sour note. I hope that was just a sloppy edit. Eric really is a wonderful Piggy!
I just saw a commercial with the Demi Lovato part and it had Scooter in it! This is probably even gonna be better than the first one! (which was really great too).
Beaker singing with Demi is just too funny
I sort of thought she sounded more Grover-ish than normal on her appearance on The View. Not that I didn't like the appearance, but she sounded weird to me.
As for the DC clip, I don't really know what to think of it.
I totally agree with you
I saw one clip with floyd and the dude from wizards of waverly place. Man, I was hoping for floyd to say something...needless to say, he didnt
I do hope they introduce the EM members by name this time though
Am I the only one who is not sure it's a good idea?
The whole 'Hannah Montanna' parts of Disney mainly appeal to children about 8-10, most of which who think muppets are for babies [they're wrong, obviously. ;p] and I'm afraid they'll see the muppets as something for younger kids than their shows.
Well, here's to hoping it turns out well.
I think that the logic is that when these idol worshiping kids see their favorite celebrities with the Muppets, they figure "Oh, so-in-so likes them, so they must not be so bad." I don't know though. I know kids can be flaky, but I don't think kids are stupid... most of the time.
Needless to say, they are being shown to a new audience who otherwise may not have known about the Muppets. Once they see that the Muppets are witty and aren't talking down to them, I think kids open up to them.
I would agree with you if, and this is a very, very big if, there weren't Muppet projects being made that were targetted to adults and families--not just kids and preteens. We've got the Muppets.com videos and the YouTube videos, both of which are highly appealing to kids and adults alike, and we have a new Christmas special that is aimed specifically at families and adults. It's a great time to be a Muppet fan--no matter what your age.
It's airing tonight, I can't wait! (and lucky me, I'm getting out of work at 6 instead of 8!)
So, should there be a new thread titled "Studio DC: Almost Live: 2, that way peopel can vote for the special too?
Or maybe we can just give a star rating like 3 out of four stars if it was good, etc.
Okay, I'll do that instead.............
I am SO thrilled... I've planned my entire day around this thing. I promised one of my friends I'd go to their choir concert at three and then I also promised I'd go to a movie--which I'm doing at 4:50, so if everything is timed right I'll be home by 6:45--fifteen minutes before Studio DC!
I'm sure Phil will start a new thread for the new show... at least I hope so.
Ohhhh yeah its tonight boooys! lol got my tape all ready!
I'm glad I looked at this, I totally forgot it it is tonight
It's a good thing it's airing again tomorrow, since I have things to do tonight.
Id like to make a retraction as to my previous statement, dealing with voices.
On Muppet News flash, i read a comment by someone named Matt V. (Vogel i presume) which stated David rudman was Janice, and Floyd was indeed looped by Mr.Nelson for the original Studio DC.
