    I definitely have to say that I enjoyed this one a lot more. I'll have to watch them both back to back sometime to really track the differences, but here are some of the reasons why I thought it was AWESOME:

    1.More Muppets. Period! There were definitely a lot more Muppets involved, meaning they got so much better representation on this one. Floyd got his cool, laid back side out, Scooter and his "whatever will we do", stage-manager-type was great, and Pepe and Rizzo with Polka Rap was hilarious and just like them.

    2. the duet with Beaker. IT WAS SO GREAT! I'm so glad that beaker is getting more attention, on the tv tube and youtube! He deserves something after all the years of failed experiments!

    3. Piggy's number with the Cheetah girls was so great that I hardly can describe it. I love it when she busted out all of the sexy moves and the wardrobe changing powers! I totally wish I had that!


    There were a couple of things that I didn't like that other forum members pointed out:
    I totally agree with this. I know Piggy has her rude diva moments, but why all the hate? Even on The View with them showing the clip of Kermit saying things were good between them because she wasn't around. I totally wish they would stop Characterizing Kermit as way too cold towards Miss Piggy and dissing their relationship. If I were Piggy, I would totally cast Kermit aside for someone who appreciates her. (totally digressed into a long-held grudge of mine) Moving on..

    Gonzo did seem less of his "wacky, crazy, let's tempt fate all the time" self, but I'm he'll come back in full cannon-ball craziness for the christmas special.

    Also, I kind of thought that Kermit was portrayed as old, creeper type with the whole mini scene with the cheetah girls and the texting thing with the Waverly Place guy. I think they need to focus more on the characters and less on aging them when teaming up with the young D.C. kids (Except for Statler and Waldorf, because the bit with them and the two boys was priceless).

    But overall... Definite Improvement, and Piggy's dance was frickin awesome!

    Definitely excited to see what Disney comes up with next!:)

    I knew it. Rowlf wasn' there. But I got to admit it's getting better. I am very happy that they had Fozzie, Camilla, Scooter, and Beaker.:) I just hope they make a third special of studio dc WITH ROWLF!:mad: Thank you

    I really enjoyed it. It was one of the best ones ever. Did everyone notices that some of the scenes they did were kinda of a link to the first special? Here are some hints.

    When Kermit comes looking for Miley and the Cheeta Girls tell him she over in Studio B. Then Miss Piggy is caught off by them telling her that Zac is over in Studio B. Even tho Kermit should have been looking for Ashley instead of Miley but maybe there's a catch.

    Then if you look in the audience scene with Statler and Waldorf you can see the same people who are at the end of the first special.

    But in all I really enjoyed every bit of and hope to see it as a new show or even as a special on a bonus or DVD.

    I agree, this one was sOOOO much better then the first one. Still not quite the level I would expect from them, but definately heading in the right direction.
    I agree with the whole Piggy Kermit relationship being a bit skewed off right now, but am giving them the benefit of doubt right now, Steve and Eric haven't really had all that much experience in developing the subtle interplay that Jim and Frank had, they definately need to work on that more. We all know that Kermit really, truely loves Piggy, and they need to work on bringing that back into play.
    Loved having Dr Teeth talking, he was so much more himself then in the last one...
    Really, the only problem I had with the show was Piggy's singing voice... she just sounded so shrill and off key tonight.. She use to have a much better voice...
    But all in all, LOVED IT!

    Ok, so, so far I have only seen a few little clips on Youtube...And I am actually in *love!* with this special! It's seemed so funny and energy filed! They learnt their lessons from the first one, and developed the plot and action a lot better here! I loved the way the characters were interacting with each other, and the jokes were corny but good :p "Blizzards of Waverly Place!" Hehe.

    Love love love.

    Yea i think with the first one it was kind of bits and pices put together to make a show. This one however had more of a plot, and had more of a connected type of feeling. GO MUPPETS!

    OMG! OMG! OMG! This episode was FAR more better than the first one, although I loved the "air conditioner" in the first episode. Seeing Statler & waldorf, made me laugh, and the Less Talka Talka, More Wocka wocka, and "Club sandwich" bit made me laugh!

    From what I saw the show went remarkably better than the other special. I guess these are the B-list Disney kids and they seem to work harder in this context than the more established contractually obligated stars. ;)

    I still didn’t like Miss Piggy’s singing voice or Cheetah performance, but that was expected. She shined everywhere else. Fozzie was in top form. So was Scooter (even with the hunched shoulders) and I hope Rudman (or somebody) lands that permanent gig. Beaker was back in action with his passion for singing. And Steve’s nimble ways with the frog are astounding! :)

    From a fan perspective the show gets a C+, but for what the show was intended it receives a B+. I have fewer worries about the Muppets on or off the Disney Channel. :flirt:

    I finished the special and thought that it wasn't great, but certainly better than the first one. We got more characters included, it was longer, so more stuff could be put in and some of the acts were good, especially Demi and Beaker's number. Plus, it was great to see Camilla and Scooter again.

    I watched it last night, It was actually pretty good. One thing I noticed is there were way way WAY more DC stars than the last one. and when I watched it I thought YAY, SCOOTER, BEAKER, AND FOZZIE. I felt kinda riped off, in the sence that Camilla did come back, but she wasn't really herself, so to speak. I also wish Floyd spoke more than he did. I'll agree with Oscarfan, THis was much better than last time. I hope they do at least one more special so they can get Bunsen and Rowlf in there. All in All, I found it rather enjoyable.

    I actually thought Demi Lovato sang really well.

    I also cracked up laughing at her holding Beaker's hand, her kissing him, and Beaker falling down.

    Yeah! Gonzo finally found the little kid from Wizards of Waverly Place and it turns out he's a "real" wizard and he was able to turn Camilla back into a chicken.

    And Demi really did sing very well. But... of course, Beaker was better. ;)

    I just caught the entire broadcast and it was pretty good. The premise for these shows appears to be like the network fall season promotional programs that introduce new shows coming that year. It's not really about the Muppets or the Disney kids; it's about product and programming promotion = a 30 minute ad. The Muppets really got to be themselves this time out. I'm very happy about that.

    I think it's probably Matt Vogel, same as in Muppet Race Mania.

    I wasn't big on the Cheetah Girls bit... Piggy's voice just isn't right for that song. But, I think I liked pretty much everything else.

    Quick question, was Dave Goelz sick during this? I don't think that was his hand in Gonzo. The voice, deffinitely, but the puppetry just didn't seem like Dave's usual style. Looked a little jumpy.

    I did notice that Bill Barretta got top billing in this one. Interesting. I think it was Bill, Dave, Steve, then Eric.

    I finally saw it today. It was a definite improvement, I'll say that. Some of it still felt really awkward to me (maybe it was that Disney laugh track), but I liked it a lot more. If they keep improving on it I'll be super happy :D

    Jim Lewis actually revealed that it WAS David Rudman performing Scooter, and if you listen close enough, Scooter sounds almost exactly like Baby Bear only deeper and sans the lisp.

    And I was thinking the same thing about Gonzo, actually! I don't know what it was... but it didn't seem like Dave, you're right. Maybe it had to do with the new-ish Gonzo puppet? I dunno, but Gonzo WAS much better in this one than the first.
