    Eeee, I loved Harry blowing up the house.

    They're singing "Just one Person" It's great!

    Halfway through watching live and already it's blowing their previous Extreme Makeover appearances out of the water - like their previous stints were dress rehearsals!

    EEP - seeing the new Gonzo puppet in daylight - the coloring on his nose is slapdash and awful!

    So cool to see so much of the Muppet cast - great to see Crazy Harry involved!

    Of course when a Muppet Freak watches something like this i'm watching with two sets of eyes - enjoying the show with full suspension of disbelief and also thinking about all the behind-the-scenes how they did stuff mindset - lots of hard work and planning obviously went into this and what looks onscreen like a lot of simple playing aroung requires lots of set-up and preplanning from the props and costumes to the set-up involved with making it look like Piggy karate chopped the house and Gonzo in the hole in the roof (that must have been pretty dangerous actually given the condition it was in). I'd love to see some kind of making-of footage of this.

    Cool to see Gonzo in his costume from Muppets Take Manhattan!

    And you've got to love the people who are doing it. It's actually kinda neat that they took the time to set that up, considering the time constraints that they have to finish everything. Plus, there are the people that actually DID tear down the house to consider. The showiness is all well and good but it's important to give credit where it's due.

    Crazy Harry Blew Up The House! That was really awesome! And yeah the Gonzo puppet needs to be redone. It was a really cute special and I love it when the Muppets are involved in stuff like this, they're really so full of humor and love.

    Aw dude, that totally stinks. I'm sorry. Is there a way you can watch it online or something?

    Did anybody else love Statler and Waldorf crying at the end?

    ...Not to mention all those of us who DID set our dvrs and are adding it to our collections who are happy to do tape trades with those who didn't get a chance to see it.

    THIS WAS AWESOME! I loved every bit of it and just loved it to death. When Crazy Harry showed up then that's when i started laughing. Then when Piggy knocked over Sweetums. Funny stuff. I was hoping to see Sweetums like walking throught with some wood and helping out the guys start building. It was just so amazing i couldn't believe it.

    Thanks Disney and hope to see more and maybe someday a new tv show with the Muppets. WHOOOOOOO!

    Ha, funny all the way to me.

    I mean they had a Gonzo stunt and that alone was worth it a bit. The :crazy: thing was just a bonus.

    I mean WOW, this is how the muppets should be, although I wouldn't allow :) on a crane, because that was just crazy to me, but then again it is the Muppets.

    I love Ty and the whole crew they seem to work really well with the Muppets. I would love to see the Muppets do there own show like this or something.

    I haven't seen this yet, but it appears to include several classic Muppet dynamics and not only the usual Kermit/Piggy ones we've seen so much of.

    - The gang all showing up together in a crazy mob.
    - The gang working together to help achieve a common goal.
    - Special singing moments with both popular and secondary cast.
    - A stirring speach by the frog.
    - Crazy character-driven antics.

    Were there any more?

    Add on explosions and random chickens and I'd say what more do you need? :D Sounds like the perfect Muppet formula to me!

    I thought it was fantastic and funny to see all the Muppets do some construction work on a house for a deserving family. I just loved it and it ment so much to see the Muppets do something so special.

    Loved watching this, I was very moved by it as well.

    I also found it worthy to note, that on the very same night, two Fox shows made a reference to Jim Henson Creature Shop and It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, which were the Simpsons and American Dad respectly.

    I loved this so much! It was a Great to see everyone and each of then having a bit part to do, I like that Crazy Harry was there, it made me happy to see that they brought out an older character, Fozzie had some "lame" Funny Jokes and that Statler and Waldorf had their moments and at the end, Rizzo Father was cool too, The Song they sang was great too, I like that they were not overly silly and had heart too, Over all a great appearence and I hope they do more fun apperences like this in the future! :) :D

    How big is it that about a year ago long time Muppet writeer Jim Lewis said he did not like writeing for Crazy Harry, and He finaly got to blow up a house!

    Did anyone else notice how AWFUL Beaker looked in the ending gag (after the credits)? He looked like they slapped the puppet together at the last moment.

    Other than that I thought it was a really good appearance. It was the perfect balance of heart, humor and sheer wackiness that the Muppets are known for.

    And, on a different note, I've gotten used to the new Gonzo puppet, but I'd be happy if they changed it back.

    Can't say more than what's already been said - just more good stuff on the train of Muppet excitement that's been heading our way! Hopefully it keeps going full speed ahead!
